Isaac Newton discovered that what goes up must come down. Simple physics, right? Smile physics states that when you smile, the people around you will smile, too. What if you don’t want to smile because of discolored, chipped, crooked, broken, or missing teeth? Through cosmetic dentistry, we can make you (and all your friends—remember the smile physics?) want to smile.
Porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic solution for patients who want to quickly and comfortably transform numerous flaws into a picture-perfect smile. Veneers are crafted from thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain that are affixed to front facing surfaces of teeth, and patients should expect to visit our office at least two times to complete the procedure. During the initial visit, we prepare teeth and capture impressions for our lab. Once we receive your custom veneers, you’ll return to our office where we’ll place your porcelain veneer.
Metal-free restorations allow us to effectively repair damaged teeth in both appearance and function. We use high-quality metal-free restoration materials including E-Max all ceramic crowns and bridges and zirconia. These materials closely resemble the natural appearance of the smile, and they offer durable restoration of lost tooth structure. Patients who suffer from metal allergies and sensitivities will need to consider one of these materials in order to repair dental damage or decay. E-Max provides the most natural appearance. Even as it wears away, the E-Max all ceramic crown retains its natural appearance for years. Zirconia crowns are not as close to the natural look and feel, but their durability rivals that of gold crowns. Additionally, zirconia produces only as much wear to surrounding teeth as natural dental structures would unlike the porous ceramic material which can be more abrasive. We can repair dental damage or improve the appearance of smiles with these quality metal-free restorations materials.
If a brighter smile is on your wish list, you’ve likely tried some of the many over the counter teeth whitening solutions with little to no result. Professional teeth whitening both in our office and using our customized take-home kits offer patients highly predictable results, usually as much as ten shades brighter. We use the Zoom! light enhanced teeth whitening system in our office, and provide patients with Ultradent or Day White whitening kits for at home treatment.
If you ever feel your smile looks gummy or teeth look stubby, gum recontouring may be recommended. We use a state-of-the-art soft tissue laser to change the shape of the gum line or remove excessive soft tissue. Patients typically experience very little discomfort during their procedure and recover within a few days after treatment. Crown lengthening is a similar procedure, expect rather than cosmetically improving the appearance of the smile, we are revealing underlying tooth structure to support a dental restoration.
