Cosmetic Dentistry

In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry.  We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence.  Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.

 

  • Composite Fillings

    • A composite filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks and fractures. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. There are many types of filling materials available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. You and your dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. Composite fillings, along with silver amalgam fillings, are the most widely used today. As with most dental restorations, composite fillings are not permanent and may someday have to be replaced. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.

  • Single Visit Crowns

    • At our office, we understand that our patients time is very valuable. Taking time off from work or away from the home is a challenge for many people. We are pleased to provide single visit crown appointments utilizing our CEREC system. ​With a digital impression, accuracy is improved and there is no longer the need for the "goopy" impression material. This digital process allows for a more comfortable procedure. The crown is made directly in the office, eliminating the need for a temporary crown and a second appointment.

  • Porcelain Crowns

    • A crown is a covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations. Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain are the most popular, because they resemble your natural teeth. They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they may eventually need to be replaced.

  • Porcelain Fixed Bridges

    • ​A dental bridge is a fixed appliance and is an excellent way to replace missing teeth. There are several types of bridges. The “traditional bridge” is the most popular type and is usually made of porcelain fused to metal. Porcelain fixed bridges are most popular because they resemble your natural teeth. This type of bridge consists to two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth and are attached to pontics, filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

  • Porcelain Veneers

    • Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions. As with most dental restorations, veneers are not permanent and may someday need replacement.

  • Tooth Whitening

    • Tooth Whitening is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile. Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings and crowns. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth. Tooth whitening is not permanent.  A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
