Let Cosmetic Dentistry Brighten & Enhance Your Smile
It is no secret that a beautiful healthy smile can correlate directly to a happier and more positive self-esteem. If you find yourself hiding your smile away from the people around you to ensure no one can see your missing, cracked, chipped or decayed teeth, then perhaps it is time to look into the life-changing world of cosmetic dentistry.
Now is the time to feel confident again in your teeth and get rid of the embarrassment of bad teeth. Fortunately, there is a growing multitude of options in order to replace missing teeth or even repair damaged ones. Cosmetic dentistry treatments can do anything from fill in gaps between spaced out teeth, reshape or resize teeth, brighten discolored or badly yellowed teeth, repair chips and cracks in teeth, and of course, replace missing ones or badly damaged ones.

This form of cosmetic dentistry is the best option to brighten up a dull smile. Your teeth can lose their brilliance and luster over time from excessive coffee drinking, tobacco, wine, and much more. Professional teeth whitening systems that are administered by our team can remove layers of stains from your teeth in just one appointment. Our professional whitening material can break down stained layers to bring back the brilliance in your smile.
Veneers are custom made by our talented dental technicians to enhance the color of your original teeth, alter the size and shape of your original teeth, and to refresh your smile. These are ultra-fine porcelain coverings that are placed on the outside of your teeth to brighten up your smile, correct misaligned teeth, cover up cracks or chips and close the gaps between teeth. Porcelain veneers are among the most popular dental treatment options for improving the appearance of teeth in cosmetic dentistry. Porcelain is mainly used because it mimics the exact look of natural teeth and holds the same strength of a natural tooth. Veneers are as easy to care for as your natural teeth.
Composite Fillings & Bonding
If you have chipped, cracked or fractured a tooth, it can be painful and can ruin the whole look of your smile. Bonding is a great way to fill in these impurities by using a composite resin material that is tooth colored to restore the tooth to its natural shape. The composite resin is added to the needed area of the tooth, is hardened by a light and polished. Composite resin is the material of choice in our office to restore teeth back to original shape and contour when affected by dental decay.
Ceramic crowns completely encircle the entire tooth cover from the biting surface down to the gums. Crowns are indicated when teeth are damaged from trauma or broken, affected with large decay, weakened by large fillings or root canals. Zirconia is among the most used materials for crowns as they mimic the look of natural teeth and give the strength of a natural tooth as well. Porcelain crowns will last longer than any other form of tooth repair.
A dental bridge is one of the most effective, fixed (non-removable), and cosmetic dental options that literally “bridges the gap” left from the missing tooth. It is a fixed restoration and is custom designed to improve your bite and enhance your smile. A bridge consists of at least one artificial tooth known as a pontic and it is connected to two crowns known as abutments. Each abutment tooth will be used to support the bridge and must be free of diseases such as gum disease, bone loss, and dental decay. Not only can bridges be attached to natural teeth, they also can be secured to dental implants. For patients desiring to have implant bridges, some of the key criteria are adequate bone to support the implants and healthy gum tissue to prevent inflammation around the implants.
Dental implants are the #1 recommended dental treatment options for tooth replacement among cosmetic dentists around the world. If you have a missing tooth or a badly decayed tooth that is far beyond repair, a dental implant might be a dental restorative option. Losing a tooth results in the deterioration of the jawbone, unattractive smile, uneven biting forces and shifting of teeth. Dental implants can create a stunning smile as well as maintaining the integrity of the bone providing a long-term prognosis.
