Professional dental whitening: this is one of the quickest and most affordable cosmetic treatments available today. Using a topical whitening agent, our team minimizes existing stains, so that we can return the dental enamel to its previous color/level of whiteness. A couple of things to know about professional whitening: this treatment is completely non-invasive, and it can be repeated over time in order to intensify results.
Dental bonding: bonding uses one of the most versatile materials in dentistry—composite resin—to improve the appearance and/or structure of a patient’s tooth. With bonding, we can cover unsightly stains, correct dental damage, make a patient’s smile appear straighter, and even lengthen or widen poorly shaped teeth. One major benefit of this treatment is that it can be completed in just one appointment.
Porcelain veneers: veneers are another option when it comes to covering natural teeth. These thin porcelain restorations are only as thick as a contact lens, but, once in place, they have a major impact. Veneers are individually crafted and perfected before they are permanently attached to the natural tooth.
Invisalign: this treatment is designed to move a patient’s natural teeth into better alignment. The thing that sets Invisalign apart is that it uses clear plastic aligners, rather than metal brackets and wires, to shift the patient’s natural smile.
