Whitening and Bleaching
Keeping our teeth their whitest can be a challenge. Professional Whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like. We utilize two kinds of whitening or bleaching in our office. One is to have a customized tray created, which you can use to apply the whitening agent at home. You will place special gel in the tray for a specified amount of time until you achieve the desired result. Your second option is a session or two of “In Office Bleaching” where stronger agents are applied during a dental visit with the doctor This office dispenses a simple, safe, and effective tooth whitening system that is closely monitored by our clinical staff for maximum results in the least amount of time. Please contact us today to see if you are candidate for this type of system.
Bonding and Tooth Colored Fillings
Bonding is a method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in the teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth with tooth colored restorative material. Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. Bonding is a procedure that really shows off the artistic talent and expertise of the dentist. Our dentists excel at the challenges of bonding and often it can be a more affordable and attractive solution for many dental problems. Tooth colored composite fillings are to silver fillings what CD’s are to Vinyl records. Traditional silver fillings do the job, but tooth colored contemporary composites are also long-lasting and durable, and they are much better looking! How can you benefit from the newest-generation of invisible composite filling materials?
- Smile with confidence! Fillings match your own teeth, even at the back of your mouth
- Smile with assurance! Your tooth is repaired with the removal of less healthy tooth enamel
- Smile with strength! Composites bond to enamel to help prevent breaking and insulate from temperature changes.
In the last few years, porcelain veneers-ultra-thin, translucent shells-have become the technique of choice for treating discolored, chipped, or stained front teeth. Veneers bond tenaciously to your front teeth, and can be successfully prepared and applied in just two or three appointments. When the veneers are ready, we place them temporarily on your teeth to check their fit and get a sense of color. To apply the veneer, the cement is sandwiched between the veneer and your tooth, and a beam of light initiates the catalyst to harden the cement. It takes artistry, skill, and modern technology to create dramatic and lasting smile transformations that translucent, sculpted, cosmetic veneers offer. If you think veneers would help you smile more, please call us today for a consultation. You’ll love your great new smile !
