Call our front desk if you would like to learn more about our cosmetic services or discover which one may be right for you. We’re able to offer a variety of cosmetic dental services, including:
Bonding is one of the least expensive cosmetic procedures that removes tooth decay and applies an enamel-colored composite to the tooth’s surface. The tooth is then sculpted to the right shape and cured with high-intensity light. This procedure is available for patients with minor tooth decay, chipped or cracked teeth, or teeth with worn edges.
Teeth Contouring and Shaping
Cosmetic contouring refers to a procedure that removes enamel to alter and reshape the form and appearance of existing teeth. The process is performed quickly and painlessly. Contouring is ideal for cracked, chipped, and misaligned teeth and can improve damage from grinding teeth.
Veneers are thin, realistic, custom-fitted caps designed to permanently cover the front surface of your natural teeth. Preparation steps to applying veneers can be lengthy, but they can dramatically improve the appearance of discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, uneven, misaligned, and gapped teeth.
Like veneers, dental lumineers are applied to the front surface of your teeth, but they’re thinner, involve less intensive preparation time, and aren’t permanent compared to traditional veneers.
Bridges and Crowns
Bridges and crowns are common types of cosmetic dental corrections designed to repair teeth that are missing, decayed, fractured, or have undergone a root canal or large filling. Both are great prosthetic alternatives to permanent dental implants. A crown goes over the top of one single decaying or damaged tooth to restore it to its previous state of health, keeping the tooth covered and protected, while a bridge is solely used to replace one or more missing teeth using your healthy teeth as anchors.
Dental implants use metal fixtures surgically fastened to your jawbone below the gums. Implants are a fixed solution designed to replace missing or damaged teeth and support removable partial or complete dentures. Once the bone and supporting tissue fuse with the implant, it will be permanently secured into place and indistinguishable from surrounding natural teeth.
Whitening is the most common and popular cosmetic dental procedure and can be performed within a single visit. Teeth whitening involves removing plaque and tartar from the surface of teeth, and then a bleaching agent is used to lighten their color.
Inlay and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are indirect fillings fitted and bonded to the inside of the tooth. They’re used to replace tooth structure loss from mild or moderate decay or insufficient tooth structure to support a traditional filling. An inlay is placed directly into the grooves of a cavity in the inner tooth, whereas an onlay extends up to the outer edge of the biting surface (called the cusp).
Laser Gum Therapy
Laser gum therapy is a form of treatment used to address gum infections such as periodontal disease. It is a less invasive treatment option than surgery that uses a laser to remove inflamed gum tissue around the root of teeth and plaque and tartar below and around the gum line. This procedure is used to help alleviate the risk of future infection and promotes stronger growth and regeneration of the gum line around your teeth.
When a cavity is present, a filling is needed to restore tooth structure and prevent further deterioration. Tooth-colored fillings use a composite resin to beautifully blend into the natural color of your teeth, as opposed to the old, silver-colored fillings.
Restorative dental procedures might be necessary to help establish a healthier foundation before cosmetic measures are performed. Restorative dentistry encompasses a range of procedures, including fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, inlays, onlays, and treatments for your gums.
