Treatments to achieve a bright and healthy appearance are tailored to the unique characteristics of each patient. We perform teeth whitening, cosmetic fillings, veneers, and other restorations to achieve a person’s individual goals.
Professional teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to achieve a whiter and brighter smile. The fastest way to obtain whiter teeth is through a one hour in-office treatment. While you relax in the dental chair a dental hygienist will apply whitening varnish to your teeth. By the end of the hour patients typically achieve a brighter smile by one to four shades. A custom tray is than fabricated and additional whitening material is provided to allow for further whitening at home.
Composite fillings are highly esthetic restorations that closely match the color of the tooth. Composites are made of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium and have the ability to bond to the tooth directly. The ability to bond to the tooth often results in smaller fillings then would be necessary when placing an amalgam (or silver) filling. Thus, using composites frequently minimizes the amount of tooth loss when a filling is placed.
Veneers are a thin layer of material (composite or porcelain) that is placed on a tooth to improve esthetics or protect a damaged surface. Most veneers are made by a dental technician in a dental laboratory and cemented onto the teeth by your dentistRequest an Appointment Online
