Porcelain veneers are the go-to cosmetic dentistry treatment for many celebrities. They are thin pieces of porcelain that we permanently attach to the fronts of a patient’s teeth. They can disguise a range of flaws, including discoloration, minor misalignment, chips and cracks, and more. We custom-design veneers to complement a patient’s natural facial aesthetics. Porcelain is highly stain-resistant, and a set of veneers can last for 10 years or longer before replacement becomes necessary.
Metal crowns and bridges are quite durable, but they can interfere with the aesthetics of your smile. That is why we offer 100 percent porcelain restorations. They bear a strong resemblance to natural teeth. In fact, they even reflect light in a way that is similar to real enamel. Once your restoration is in place, onlookers may have no idea that you have had some dental work done. Porcelain crowns and bridges are durable enough to stand up to all the rigors of everyday eating and drinking.
During the direct bonding process, we mold a tooth-colored resin over a tooth, shaping it in a way that changes the tooth’s appearance. A special light hardens the resin so it is strong enough to endure the forces of normal eating and drinking. The entire treatment takes place in a single appointment and is quite comfortable. We typically recommend direct bonding for patients who have just one or two teeth whose appearance could use some improvement.
Tooth enamel is porous, so it can absorb pigments from the foods we eat and drink. Over time, an accumulation of stains can cause a smile to look dull or yellow. Our Zoom professional teeth whitening treatments are able to fight that discoloration. You can come into our dental office for a procedure that could brighten your teeth by several shades in a single appointment. Or we can provide you with a take-home kit that will produce stunning results in just a couple weeks.
Excess or uneven gum tissue can detract from your mouth’s appearance and result in what is commonly referred to as a “gummy smile.” During a gum recontouring/crown lengthening procedure, we gently and precisely trim the gums in order to expose more of the teeth’s structure. We can thus produce a more proportionate look for your smile. We may also use this treatment to make room on the teeth for crowns or porcelain veneers.
Our advanced technology allows us to give you a realistic preview of the results of your cosmetic treatment. We simply take some images of your teeth and use advanced software to help you — and us — visualize how you will look after your procedure. This tool helps us to design porcelain veneers and other treatments in a way that is truly tailored to what our patients want. It can also help you be confident in your choice of treatment.
Are you tired of your frown lines, forehead lines, and crow’s feet? Botox cosmetic can smooth out those lines by temporarily paralyzing the muscles beneath them. When the injections are handled by someone who has an intimate knowledge of facial structures, such as a dentist, they are quite safe and can produce truly beautiful and natural-looking results. You can maintain your new look by visiting us for further injections 3 – 4 times each year.
Do you have multiple aesthetic issues plaguing your smile? We may be able to address them with a smile makeover, which is a custom-made treatment plan that aims to correct everything you do not like about the way your teeth look. It may include a variety of cosmetic and restorative treatments, such as teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, and dental implants. We will work closely with you to design a plan that fits your circumstances and budget.
