Cosmetic Dentistry

Old black amalgam fillings are becoming a thing of the past.

Implants

Tooth loss doesn’t have to stop your smile from saying great things about you. Cosmetic dentistry has many tooth-replacement options that allow you to recapture your youthful appearance and restore the function of your teeth. One which we might recommend is a dental implant.

Dental implants provide a look and feel that’s very close to natural teeth. Implants are metal posts or frames surgically placed beneath your gums. After placement, the implants fuse to the bone of your jaw and act as artificial tooth roots. Replacement teeth are attached to the implant.

Bleaching

The bleaching process lightens discolored enamel and dentin. This is the safest, most effective way to bighten your smile — often in one week.

Bonding

Bonding involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin to the tooth. It can be used for cosmetic purposes or to repair or protect teeth. Bonding is ideal for patients who have chips or cracks in front teeth or want to make changes in the appearance of teeth.
Composite resins are also used to protect exposed roots which results from gum recession. They also help prevent sensitivity to temperature changes which can occur when roots are exposed.
Bonding is often completed in one visit and may not require the use of anesthesia.

Sealants

Dental sealants can play an important role in helping to prevent some forms of tooth decay (“cavities”). The placement of dental sealants involves your dentist bonding a plastic coating into the grooves of your tooth (the tooth’s pits and fissures). The net result is a smoother tooth surface, one which is less likely to trap food and plaque, as well as one which is easier to effectively clean with a toothbrush.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers are a great way to fix front teeth and give you that instant make-over you’ve been looking for.. They are very durable and life-like. You can whiten your teeth, close spaces and create a great smile. We can even do virtually instant orthodontics to straighten crooked teeth and create a great smile.
