Cosmetic Dentistry


Your pearly whites are constantly under attack by materials that can cause them to discolor and develop stains. As a result of the food we eat, tobacco smoke, tea and coffee, root canal treatments, prescription drugs, and even normal aging, many of us have teeth that are stained and discolored.
The good news is that tooth whitening can give your smile a second chance. Whitening can remove many stains and discolorations quickly and without any discomfort.
There are two main types of cosmetic whitening. Non-vital whitening is usually best for teeth that turn dark because of root canal treatment. Non-vital whitening lightens the tooth from the inside out. Vital whitening is used for most other forms of discoloration, and you may be asked to wear a custom-fitted mouthguard filled with whitening solution for a certain amount of time each day in the convenience of your home, or you may get a whitening solution to mix with your toothpaste. All vital whitening techniques are comfortable and less costly than bonding or crowns. We may ask you to come in for a touch-up reapplication once or twice a year.
If stains and discolorations are causing your smile to turn into a frown, talk to us about whitening during your next dental appointment.
New techniques and materials allow us to repair stained or discolored teeth, or replace missing or worn teeth with metal-free inlays, crowns, veneers, and bridges.
The examples below are just a few of the many conditions that our new restorative techniques can correct. Imagine what cosmetic dentistry could do for your smile!
Problem: Stained, discolored, or dull-looking teeth
Solution: If you would just like to brighten up your smile, all you may need is a safe and effective whitening treatment to get rid of stains. We’ll suggest either in-office treatment or a customized, at-home system supervised by us.
Problem: Chipped, cracked, or worn teeth
Solution: We can restore your cracked, chipped, or worn teeth with crowns or ultra-thin ceramic veneers. New materials and bonding techniques are cosmetically pleasing, and can strengthen restored teeth.
Problem: Gaps between teeth
Solution: Some gaps can be corrected by using porcelain crowns or veneers. Others may need orthodontics, where braces and other appliances move teeth into their proper position.
Problem: Bite dysfunction or missing teeth
Solution: Crown or bridgework is best for correcting major functional or structural problems involving individual teeth, missing teeth, or general bite dysfunction. We can also replace missing or severely broken teeth with new, natural-looking porcelain and ceramic technology. Dental implants can also be a wonderful solution for missing teeth.
