Veneers are thin shells that can be used to solve multiple cosmetic dental issues simultaneously. By placing a veneer on the front of your tooth, we can conceal all kinds of imperfections, such as severe stains, damaged enamel, and certain misalignment issues. Thanks to their versatility, veneers can be a great choice in all kinds of situations, whether you only have one tooth you want to correct or are trying to enhance your whole smile.
When a tooth has been damaged, restoring its function should always come first. But with a crown or filling made out of the right materials, we can also improve the tooth’s appearance. Our office can provide customized metal-free restorations that closely match the appearance of your real teeth; they even reflect light in a similar way. With no dark-colored metal involved, you can fix your smile without worrying about your restoration being too noticeable.
You might take excellent care of your teeth in general, but at some point, they may be damaged in a way that has a less-than-positive effect on the appearance of your smile. Minor imperfections can often be fixed in as little as one appointment with cosmetic bonding. A small amount of composite resin (which is the same kind of material used for tooth-colored fillings) will be used to cover the portion of the tooth where the damage occurred.
Do you ever see your smile in photos or the mirror and wish it could be brighter? Our team can use teeth whitening to get rid of stains and discolored spots on your enamel in order to create a much more dazzling grin. Not only can our team provide fully personalized at-home whitening options, but we can also perform an in-office whitening treatment that can be used to brighten your teeth by several shades in just a single appointment.
Gum Recontouring/ Crown Lengthening
Maybe your gumline is uneven, or perhaps there is too much gum tissue visible whenever you smile. If you don’t like the way your gumline affects the appearance of your teeth, we may suggest gum recontouring to resolve the issue. This procedure involves gently removing excess gum tissue; not only does this make the gumline more aesthetically pleasing, but it also leaves more of the underlying tooth visible. The removed gum tissue won’t grow back, meaning the results of gum recontouring are permanent.
In certain situations, depending on the extent of the changes that you want, we may suggest having a full smile makeover performed. This process can combine any number of cosmetic treatments in order to address various flaws. When you come to our office for a smile makeover, we will take the time to ask what you’re trying to accomplish with the process, and we will consider your situation very carefully before we make recommendations of any kind.
