Are you a bit sensitive about the looks of your smile?

Our dentist will first ensure that your oral health is optimal to see if you are a candidate, and will then sit down with you to work out a customized plan for treatment. Not all patients require the same treatments, and a skilled cosmetic dentist knows just which options to offer.
In the world of dentistry, bonding is an option that is put to use by both cosmetic and restorative dentists. This is because it is a remarkably strong and flexible compound that is colored to match a patient’s tooth. It is a tooth colored resin applied and bonded to the tooth, enhancing its appearance even as it provides amazing strength and repair.
It is a good treatment option for those with broken, chipped, mildly gapped, or deeply stained teeth resistant to whitening. It can be used as a filling material for decay, to improve the length or shape of a tooth and other cosmetic reasons. Though it is often described in terms of cosmetic use, the bonding procedure is a fantastic option for a wide variety of patient needs.
The days of amalgam or metal fillings have ended, and instead of losing a great deal of a tooth’s structure in order to eliminate decay, modern dentists have a much more conservative option thanks to inlays and onlays. These are perfect for a patient who has decay but who does not need a crown or traditional filling or who has damaged a tooth but does not need a large restoration.
They are made of tooth-colored resin that is bonded to the treated tooth. The difference between them is quite subtle. Inlays are set within the tooth while onlays also sit in the tooth as well as replacing one or more cusps. They are incredibly strong and a fantastic option for those with cosmetic issues to the uppermost portion of the tooth.
In the world of cosmetic dentistry there are many impressive solutions to a wide range of issues. In our office, patients can obtain everything from dental crowns to cover unsightly or deeply damaged teeth to veneers or Lumineers that also cover and conceal teeth that are misshapen, stained, chipped or damaged. When patients need more than a single treatment to address their cosmetic dentistry issues, it is called a smile makeover.
If you want a new smile, but have budgetary limitations or simply wish to achieve your goals quickly, Snap-On Smiles may be the perfect choice. These are, quite accurately, new smiles that can just snap over your natural teeth. Custom made to your mouth, a Snap-On Smile hides crooked, gapped, stained or unsightly teeth easily and comfortably.

We use the innovative Glo Whitening system that has totally eliminate uncomfortable and messy trays, relying instead on a special mouthpiece equipped with lights that activate the patented gel.
