COSMETIC DENTISTRY
This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.


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

GLO WHITENING

Guided Light Optic (GLO) whitening is an innovative way to whiten your teeth both professionally and at home! This breakthrough technology allows for whitening with limited sensitivity.  The GLO whitening mouthpiece is designed to illuminate a brilliant blue light as it gently warms up.  The light and heat accelerate the whitening gel providing faster, longer lasting results.  Book an appointment to get 1-2 shades whiter in just one visit with the higher concentration hydrogen peroxide whitening gel provided in our office.  You also have the option to take home the GLO device and professional strength whitening gel to continue whitening and maintain your new, white smile at home.

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.

INVISALIGN

Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual.

ITERO ELEMENT SCANNER

The Itero Element intraoral scanner allows us to create precise models of teeth and surrounding soft tissue without the need for impression material.  The intraoral scan is completed with a handheld device which then generates an exact replica on the computer screen.  These scans can be used for invisalign cases, crown and bridge fabrication, mouthguards, and much more!
