One of our most popular services, teeth whitening is process in which bleach or other solutions are used to give teeth a whiter appearance. This removes stains and other discolorations from the surfaces of your teeth. While there are a lot of at-home options, nothing compares to the strength and thoroughness of professional-grade, in-office teeth whitening.
Tooth bonding is the application of a tooth-colored resin material using adhesives and a high intensity curing light. Bonding is typically used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth, to close spaces between teeth, to make teeth longer, or to change the shape or color of teeth.
Crowns and bridges
Dental crowns, and most bridges, are fixed prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth. They are different from removable devices such as dentures because crowns and bridges are cemented permanently onto existing teeth or implants.
Crowns are individual caps placed over natural teeth, which are shaped in preparation. Keeping your natural tooth provides a stable, healthy surface on which to anchor dental bridges, which are entirely prosthetic.
Contouring and reshaping
Dental reshaping and contouring is a procedure that can be done to correct crooked teeth, cracked/chipped teeth or overlapping teeth. Similar in principle to bonding or crowns, contouring improves the appearance of smile while preserving the strength and integrity of your natural teeth.
Dental veneers are a thin, custom-made shell of tooth-colored material created for the purpose of covering the front surface of teeth to improve the overall aesthetic appearance. These shells are bonded with dental cement and can change the color, size, length, or shape of the teeth. Whether you’re getting a veneer on a single tooth or many, the result looks fantastic and blends seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
