Once we’ve identified the problems to be fixed, we’ll discuss your options for cosmetic teeth treatments. These options include:
Dental Bonding – Bonding is a quick, cost-effective cosmetic treatment that can be completed in one dental visit. It makes use of composite resin tooth-colored, putty-like material to cover esthetic blemishes like chips or cracks or repair broken teeth to boost your smile’s appearance. Bonding compromised teeth can also strengthen them against chips and cracks in the future.
Porcelain Veneers – These ultra-thin, custom-crafted shells are bonded to the outside of your teeth to conceal dental flaws and improve their appearance. With veneers, your smile can appear whiter, smoother, more symmetrical, and even. Veneers can correct multiple flaws (chips, cracks, stains, discolorations, tooth deformities, etc.) in one procedure and, with proper care, can last 15+ years before needing to be replaced.
Teeth Whitening – Professional teeth bleaching can resolve issues with stained or discolored teeth to restore your smile’s dazzling white appearance. In-office whitening procedures can be completed in one dental visit, while at-home whitening treatments may take up to two weeks to achieve the results you desire.
Porcelain Crowns – Porcelain crowns are hollow porcelain caps placed over worn or damaged teeth to protect their structure and restore their appearance. We’ll customize your crowns to match the size, shape, and color of the teeth around them to complement your smile naturally.
Braces or clear aligners orthodontics – Orthodontic treatments resolve issues with crooked, misaligned, uneven, or crowded teeth to put a perfectly-aligned smile within your reach. Depending on the problems that need fixing, your new smile can be achieved anywhere between 12 months to two to three years.
