Obvious dental work such as silver crowns and amalgam fillings is noticeable to others. While restorations are needed to protect teeth, there are beautiful alternatives to conspicuous restoration materials. Our practice offers tooth-colored fillings made from composite resin and dental crowns made from porcelain.
Composite resin is a tooth-colored compound made from a mixture of plastic and glass. These biocompatible restorations bond well to teeth, provide protection from acid and debris, and restore a smile with a natural, lifelike appearance. Porcelain, which is also used for white restorations like dental crowns and bridges, is beautiful and lifelike. Available in an array of white shades, porcelain looks and feels like biological tooth structure.
If your smile is afflicted with various types of cosmetic concerns, porcelain veneers might be a great option for producing the appearance of a straight, white, and uniform smile. Veneers are cosmetic enhancements that are permanently fixed over the outer surfaces of teeth. They effectively conceal imperfections like chips and stains. When multiple veneers are used, they can hide the effects of worn dentition and improperly spaced teeth, too.
Veneers are custom made to exact specifications so that they look natural and complement your unique oral anatomy.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Professional teeth whitening treatments are a great way to improve your appearance without permanently altering tooth structure. Our practice offers take-home whitening kits that use high quality, prescription-grade whitening solutions for effective, predictable results. Many patients enjoy smiles that are ten shades brighter after professional whitening treatments.
Living with an imperfect smile is distressing. Dental imperfections can contribute to feelings of social isolation and depression. Investing in cosmetic dental treatments improves aesthetic concerns and boosts self-confidence.
