COSMETIC PROCEDURES

We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options including whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.
 

 

WHITENING
Our take-home whitening formulas contain ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate), a patented technology developed by the ADA. This science, combined with potassium nitrate and fluoride do so much more than just whiten. The unique formulas reduce sensitivity, rebuild enamel, fill in surface defects and whiten, for a more positive experience all around. You can choose between NiteWhite ACP (for those who want to whiten in their sleep) and DayWhite ACP (for those who prefer daytime wear).

The Dash in-office teeth whitening system provides the option of whitening your smile two to four shades in about an hour. When used in conjunction with the DayWhite or NiteWhite systems, the results can be dramatic! 


VENEERS
Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and are very esthetic.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.
