Porcelain Veneers

Our custom-made veneers are fabricated using high-quality porcelain, so your smile is sure to look incredibly natural once they are placed. No matter how many veneers you want, you can expect them to be designed with your exact needs in mind, including their color, shape and size. This means your smile will look naturally radiant the moment they are bonded to your existing teeth. Keeping them flat against your teeth requires a small amount of enamel removal, making the treatment permanent. When taken care of, they should last 10 years and longer.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Your insurance plan won’t look exactly like the ones offered by different carriers. We can review your plan with you so that you understand the type of coverage you can expect to receive. Normally, preventive care receives 80 to 100 percent coverage, fillings and other minor procedures are typically in the 70 to 80 percent range, and complex treatments are typically covered at 50%. Most plans won’t pay for cosmetic treatments (though they might if they also carry a dental health benefit).

Dental Bonding

In many cases, a small amount of composite resin can go a very long way when you need to make cosmetic improvements to your smile. Through cosmetic bonding, we can effectively hide permanent stains that do not respond to bleaching agents, cover cosmetic chips and cracks that aren’t causing pain or putting your tooth structure at risk, and even hide small gaps in between teeth, especially your two front teeth. Treatment can be completed in a single appointment, much like tooth-colored fillings which use the same material.

Take-Home Teeth Whitening

If you’re looking for an incredibly effective teeth whitening method that is both simple and painless, you’ll love using the Everlasting White take-home whitening system. Over the next 10 to 14 days, you can start to notice substantial improvements in your smile’s overall appearance! Keep in mind that teeth whitening only works on natural enamel, so stained or damaged restorations may be needed to match your newly whitened teeth. Our dentists will help you determine which treatment options will best meet your needs.

While teeth whitening is strong and effective, it does not last forever. This means you will need necessary touch-ups after enough time passes. If you happen to smoke or use tobacco, drink coffee, tea, wine, or other richly pigmented foods, touch-ups may need to be more frequent.

Invisalign Clear Braces

Straightening teeth, fixing the alignment of your bite, and removing numerous gaps throughout your smile doesn’t have to be done exclusively with traditional braces. When you only have mild to moderate levels of misalignment to address, clear aligners from Invisalign can offer a fantastic alternative! Over the course of 12 to 18 months, you can wear a series of custom-made clear aligners, all of which are designed to gently shift your teeth into a more even position. You won’t even need to change your diet or oral care habits to complete treatment!

Gum Recontouring/ Crown Lengthening

An excessive amount of gum tissue may not have an impact on your oral health, but it can be a distraction whenever you pull back your lips to smile, or it might get in the way if we’re attempting to place a crown or another type of restoration. Soft tissue lasers allow us to gently remove the unneeded tissue in order to reshape the gum line or make room for a crown.

Am I a Good Candidate for Cosmetic Dentistry?

Thanks to modern dental technology and techniques, practically anyone can benefit from cosmetic dentistry! However, you may need to complete a few preliminary treatments before you can be considered a good candidate for the service you’re interested in.

    How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Take?

    In addition, various cosmetic services take different amounts of time to complete. For instance, you can typically erase minor imperfections with dental bonding and correct a gummy smile with gum recontouring in a single easy appointment.

    Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?

    Small gaps and spaces between teeth can be filled in with dental bonding. For slightly more crooked teeth, porcelain veneers can give you a straight, uniform set of pearly whites. Moderately misaligned teeth and bite issues may be best corrected with an orthodontic treatment like Invisalign. These practically Invisible aligners are an excellent way to correct your smile without sacrificing your appearance in the meantime.

    Does Dental Insurance Cover Cosmetic Dentistry?
