Professional Teeth Whitening
This might be our most popular cosmetic solution. Why? Because, as you grow older, your teeth will naturally darken. On top of that, daily habits such as coffee, tea, soda, wine, medicine, and the like will add a deep layer of stains.
That’s why we provide several great teeth whitening options that are safe and effective. Our in-house bleaching is a one-time procedure that can brighten your teeth up to six shades in just one session. This method can remove even the most stubborn stains. If you’d rather whiten your teeth at home, we also offer take-home whitening trays. Either way, you’ll be smiling big in no time.
Have the years been unkind to your teeth and gums? Dental veneers are a great catch-all solution. Our dental veneers consist of thin layers of resin or porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They are not unlike false fingernails in that they effectively hide chips, cracks and stains. Veneers can also be used to rein in gaps, improve a tooth’s shape or size, and make your teeth look more uniform in general.
Here’s the deal: veneer application does require some enamel reduction to make room for the veneer. However, the procedure is fast, and minimally invasive. You’ll be pleased to know that color-matching is part of the plan. Accordingly, you will get a new smile that looks healthy and blends in perfectly with your natural teeth.
When veneers are not a viable option, cosmetic bonding is a cost-effective solution for minor imperfections like gapped, chipped, and stained teeth. Here’s how it works: bonding material is layered on the surface of the tooth, shaped, polished, and adjusted. After only a few minutes, your teeth will look fresh and new. Unlike veneers, bonding can be done without enamel reduction, which is nice. This is the perfect treatment for easing into the world of cosmetic dentistry!
