Lots of us see little imperfections in our smile that we’d like to fix. Using state-of-the-art technology and treatments, our dentists can correct these flaws and help you achieve your goal of a perfectly beautiful smile.
Only a few years ago, cosmetic dental treatments seemed inaccessible to many people because of the cost. But advances in technology and the types of materials available for cosmetic dentistry have reduced treatment times as well as costs. The result of these changes is that more people can now enjoy the benefit of a refreshed, healthy smile.
If you have never had a tooth-colored filling, you’ll be amazed at the beautiful results we can achieve. Tooth-colored fillings are made of a composite material that can be shaded to perfectly match the color of your natural dental enamel. Once you’ve had a tooth-colored filling placed, you won’t be able to see any difference between your tooth and the filling.
We know adults prefer discreet fillings, but what about kids? When a child has a baby tooth that needs to be filled, why not give them the fun option of a bright color instead of a boring white filling? You’d be surprised how much more receptive kids are to having a tooth filled when they know they can choose a brightly colored filling to show off to their friends!
Composite material is great for tooth-colored fillings, but it can also be used to fix a variety of other cosmetic dental problems:
- Cracked or chipped dental enamel
- Uneven gaps between teeth
- Poorly proportioned teeth
- Slightly misaligned or crooked teeth
Bonding is fast, effective, and delivers exceptional results. The composite material is applied to the surface of the tooth, shaped so the tooth retains a natural appearance, and then cured with a special light. Since the material matches the shade of your own teeth, the repair is virtually unnoticeable.
Porcelain veneers are strong and durable ultra-thin ceramic shells that are bonded to the surface of the natural tooth. Their translucent quality is similar to the appearance of natural teeth, so they can be used on just one or several teeth.
Veneers are very popular today because they are so versatile. We can use veneers to disguise the appearance of severely stained teeth, chips, cracks, and uneven gaps and spaces. Veneers are sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics" because they provide an effective solution for correcting the appearance of teeth with minor alignment issues.
ClearCorrect is an orthodontic treatment system that uses clear aligners to solve a wide variety of alignment problems for adults and teens. They are very effective and easy to wear, and you don’t have to wait years to see results.
Patients who have had ClearCorrect treatment are impressed with the beautiful results that can be achieved so quickly. Average treatment time varies with each individual, but usually takes between twelve and eighteen months. Our customized ClearCorrect aligners are also comfortable, removable, and virtually unnoticeable. This makes them the perfect solution for adults and teens who are concerned about their appearance when interacting with others.
