Teeth Whitening begins with making a custom mold of the patient’s upper and/or lower dental arches and fabricating a custom tray to deliver the whitening gel to the teeth. A variety of gels are chosen based on patient preference for daytime or nighttime wear. For patients who have or are currently experiencing sensitivity from teeth whitening in the past, we have ways of minimizing this discomfort. Whitening with lasers and bright lights can have a higher occurrence of increasing tooth sensitivity. Our goal is for you to have a great smile, and healthy teeth.
Porcelain veneers can beautify your smile by improving the color, shape and spacing of your teeth. Veneers are thin artificial coverings that are applied over the front of your natural teeth. You might be a candidate for veneers if you need to correct the appearance of chipped, cracked, worn, gapped teeth or whiten stained teeth. Veneers can correct the appearance of misaligned or irregularly shaped teeth, strengthen your natural teeth and preserve the natural structure of your teeth.
Direct Composite Veneers
Direct composite veneers are an alternative to porcelain veneers and used in special situations. They can be done in one office visit, making them an excellent solution in a dental crisis. Composite veneers are an alternative when finances, health or other special considerations do not allow for porcelain veneers.
Cosmetic reshaping is sculpting of tooth structure in the patient’s smile. Sometimes skillful reshaping is all that is necessary to improve a smile.
