Woman's smile compared with veneers color options

When our patients want to make multiple improvements to their smiles, we often recommend veneers as a way to address all of them at once. A veneer is a thin sheath of tooth-colored porcelain that’s placed over a given tooth in order to hide permanent discoloration, chips, cracks, gaps, and other imperfections. In just two appointments, you can fully revitalize your smile with lifelike restorations that can last 10 years or more with the right kind of care.

Propel® Accelerated Orthodontics

If you’re using Invisalign clear aligners to straighten your teeth, we can make your treatment even more efficient and transformative with the help of Propel®. This system involves making small, strategic holes in the jawbone so that the teeth are more receptive to movement, meaning it takes less time for them to move towards their new positions. Propel® also increases blood flow in the area, which accelerates bone regrowth, which further speeds up the orthodontic process as a whole. With this system, you’ll be enjoying a straighter smile all the sooner.


Metal-Free Dental Restorations

Are you nervous about getting a metal crown that will stick out among your other teeth? We can put those worries to rest with one of our metal-free restorations. Our EMAX, zirconia, and porcelain crowns have the same color and light-reflective properties as natural tooth enamel. Once they’ve been color-matched to your natural smile, it will be virtually impossible to tell them apart from your other teeth. This way, it will look as though you didn’t need dental work done to begin with.


Teeth Whitening

Brushing every day helps keep your teeth free of plaque and bacteria, but it doesn’t necessarily keep it free of discoloration. If your smile is looking a little duller than you would like it to, we can restore some of its brightness with Zoom! whitening. The whitening gel used for this treatment is much stronger than anything you can find at the store and can even remove stains from beneath your enamel. An in-practice whitening procedure takes about an hour, while take-home whitening usually yields results after about two weeks.


Invisalign Clear Aligners

Everyone knows that a row of straight, dazzling teeth can make a powerful impact. But what if you’re not willing to wear braces to make those changes? Thanks to Invisalign®, patients who are concerned about their everyday appearance can still benefit from orthodontic treatment with the help of discreet see-through aligners. Not only is Invisalign® more attractive than traditional braces, it’s also more convenient since the aligners can be taken out during meals and for oral hygiene.

Dental Bonding

One minor chip or discolored spot can take its toll on your self-esteem, even if the rest of your smile looks fine. We can use direct bonding to shape your tooth and hide small imperfections – all in just one short visit. All we have to do is apply a small amount of composite resin to the area in question and hide the flaws that have been bothering you. The material will be carefully blended so that it appears to be a natural part of the enamel once it has been hardened in place.

Smile Makeovers

Sometimes, improving one or two teeth is enough, but many of our patients need an entire smile transformation. When planning a smile makeover, we’ll very carefully consider all of the available options, and we’ll recommend treatments based on the kinds of changes you want to make. A smile makeover could combine whitening, veneers, bonding, and other services depending on your needs. If you have any questions about the process, don’t hesitate to ask us!

Even if your teeth are looking dazzling, wrinkles and fine lines may diminish the impact of your smile and leave you looking older than you’d like. Luckily, we can restore the youth to your grin with the help of BOTOX®, a well-known solution for smoothing out creases on the face. We simply inject tiny amounts of botulinum toxin into your face to prevent the muscles from making the involuntary movements that lead to wrinkles in the first place.

Gum Recontouring

When you smile, your teeth should grab everyone’s attention; if your gums are getting in the way, then you may want to make a few corrections. Patients with overdeveloped gums that make their teeth look smaller (a condition also known as a gummy smile) than they should may want to consider gum recontouring. This involves removing the gum tissue that isn’t needed in order to balance the gumline and reveal more of the natural enamel underneath.
