Porcelain veneers are an effective way to enhance the appearance of your smile through the use of thin porcelain covers placed on your teeth. Our customized veneers take a minimal amount of prep and can help improve the color, size, length and shape of your teeth. During your consultation, our dentists will review your overall dental health to ensure you are a good candidate for porcelain veneers. We will also review your objectives and expectations so we can personalize your procedure.
How it works:
After deciding on your treatment plan, we will take impressions of your teeth and have your veneers made. Your impressions will be sent to a dental laboratory where your custom veneers will be made out of high-quality porcelain. As soon as your veneers are ready, we will have you come in and remove a little bit of enamel from the front of your teeth to allow room for veneers and enhance the bond for a natural and long-lasting outcome. Once bonded, we will make minor adjustments to ensure a great fit.
Cosmetic veneers usually do not require anesthesia, so you should be able to resume daily tasks following your appointment. If you experience sensitivity to hot and cold meals for a few days, know that it is perfectly normal and should subside naturally.
Cosmetic veneers are resistant to stains compared to natural enamel; however, you still should stay away from food and drinks that may stain your teeth.
To prevent chipping of your veneers, avoid chewing on hard objects, like your fingernails or ice.
Veneers should be cleaned just like your own natural teeth with regular flossing and brushing and visits to the dentist.
Our offices are able to help you get visibly whiter teeth with professional teeth whitening. While there are tons of whitening choices, we offer a product that is superior to over-the-counter remedies available. Our whitening treatments will whiten your teeth by several shades to help you keep your beautiful results much longer than alternative choices. Our professional-strength whitening solutions reach below the surface of your teeth to remove deep stains to produce a brighter smile.
We also offer teeth whitening kits that are customized for your needs and can be conveniently used within your own home for a brighter, whiter smile.
If you are looking for a discreet way to straighten your teeth, Invisalign® clear teeth aligners are a more attractive and comfortable way to effectively straighten your teeth over time. Invisalign® treatment is customized for each individual.
While the aligners do need to be worn throughout most of the day, Invisalign® aligners have the benefit of being able to removed while eating, brushing your teeth, or playing sports. Invisalign® is far less obvious than metal braces that may cut and poke your cheeks and in many cases, family and friends may not even know you are wearing Invisalign® trays.
A smile makeover is a unique treatment of restorative and cosmetic procedures that can help improve not only the aesthetic appearance of your teeth, but may also improve the your general oral health. A smile makeover can consist of a variety of procedures including tooth whitening, cosmetic veneers, orthodontics, cosmetic bonding, replacement of metal fillings with composite resin, and more. Smile makeovers may also include dental restorations like bridges or crowns to replace missing teeth.

Dental bonding and contouring is a cosmetic procedure that uses composite resin to correct small flaws in the teeth for a more appealing smile. It is a fast and effective treatment where composite resin is applied to improve discoloration, reduce spaces between gapped teeth, lengthen teeth or even change the shape of a tooth.
Bonding and contouring is often performed in a single visit and anesthesia is usually not needed.
Composite resin is applied to your teeth in the desired areas and resin is then hardened with a special light. Additional layers may be added following the same process until the desired look is achieved. Once the layers of composite resin are completed, your dentist will contour and polish the material to provide you with a natural looking tooth.
