Dentistry has many different techniques to shape, sculpt, and make your smile more beautiful. With a few simple steps, you can have a smile you feel great about. And treatment may be more affordable than you think. Here are some popular treatment options:
- Tooth-Colored Fillings and Crowns
We can restore teeth that have cavities with natural-looking composites, such as resins, or use porcelain crowns. We can match the color of your natural teeth.
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded, or cemented, to the front of your teeth. They are custom-made of ceramic or composite resin, and made to look like natural teeth. Veneers can be used to fill spaces between teeth and to cover teeth that are stained, poorly shaped, or a bit crooked.
Teeth must usually be prepared before veneers are placed. It is often necessary to remove a small amount of your natural tooth to make space for the veneer. Once teeth are prepared, the procedure is permanent.
- Teeth Whitening
Teeth become stained for many reasons – drinking coffee, tea or wine; smoking; and even aging can discolor teeth. Tooth whitening is a process that makes discolored teeth whiter. The bleach used for in-office whitening is stronger than the bleach found in take home whitening kits. We can recommend the whitening treatment that is right for you.
- Orthodontics (Invisalign)
Orthodontics are used to treat a misaligned bite, to straighten teeth, and to correct jaw alignment.
A more cosmetic type of orthodontic treatment, Invisalign, uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move your teeth over time. These aligners are more discreet than traditional braces. Prices and the length of treatment are different depending on what you need. Aligners are not suitable for every patient; talk to us about the right choice for you.
- Gum Lift
Sometimes the gums extend onto the front surfaces of the teeth. This can cause a “gummy” smile or make teeth look small. A gum lift is when you we remove a small amount of gum tissue around the teeth to make them look longer or more even, if necessary.
