Some of our cosmetic dentistry services include:
Many people have discoloration caused by cigarettes, tea, coffee or medication. Your teeth also darken naturally because of age. At our office, we can provide you with the best teeth whitening systems, which brighten your smile. Bleaching can be done at our office, or you can do it yourself at home. Treatment begins with making a custom mouthpiece, which would be used with whitening material exposed to your teeth. Usually, whitening at home takes two to four weeks. The time needed is based on your desired shade. Teeth whitening at the office takes between 45 minutes to one hour visit. We will also give you some tips and tricks, to keep your smile as white as possible.
This treatment is perfect for someone who wants to improve the color, size, and shape of their teeth and make it look as natural as possible. The procedure is based on bonding a composite resin to the tooth. When it is shaped and polished, it looks as natural as your own teeth. With this treatment, you can even fill the small gaps between your teeth. The procedure uses tooth-colored material to change the color of your teeth or to fill the gaps. On the other hand, bonding is more prone to chipping or staining compared to other restorations.
If cavities are left untreated, it may cause infection and permanent damage, which can weaken your tooth. While other doctors may restore your tooth with amalgam fillings, the cosmetic dentist offers you composite fillings, which look unnoticeable and natural.
Inlays and onlays
A treatment option for mild or moderate tooth decay when there aren’t enough tooth tissues to support the dental filling. So the laboratory makes an indirect composite resin restoration, which is cemented to the tooth. They restore the shape and strengthen the tooth. What’s more, it prevents further decay and deterioration. Inlays and onlays provide very good aesthetic results.
A dental crown is an artificial restoration, which looks like a natural tooth. A cosmetic dentist may be able to choose a better tooth profile and color shade that would match with other teeth and overall smile. The restoration covers the tooth from the outside completely. Moreover, the crown can be made to cover the implant too. When other procedures are not effective, the crown option is generally used due to their cost. What is more, crowns most usually last the longest, compared to other restorations. But on the other hand, they are most time-consuming.
A veneer is a thin porcelain restoration which is attached to the vestibular surface of the tooth. It is the best option for someone who has unsuccessful teeth whitening or whitening-resistant stains. Veneers can hide small cracks or other imperfections which are usually visible. This treatment is a great alternative to crowns. Your dentist will take an impression. Then they will create a custom veneer and cement it to the surface of your tooth. Because veneers are fabricated in the laboratory, you may need more than one visit to the office. In comparison to dental bonding, veneers can last longer and are less likely to change the color of restoration than bonding.
Contouring and reshaping
These procedures are performed in order to correct chipped, crooked, overlapped or irregularly shaped teeth.They can be performed in one session. With this treatment, you can change position, shape, and length of the teeth. These treatments can even correct small problems with your bite.

Invisalign treatment to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted — without braces. A complimentary consultation with our Dentists can determine whether Invisalign clear aligners are right for you. Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective. Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. The aligners are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires, which means you spend less time in our office getting adjustments. Invisalign treatment also allows you to view your own virtual treatment plan when you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete. You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, and remove them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You’ll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months, and the average number of aligners is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
