During your routine dental visits, you can discuss any flaws or problems you want to address in your smile. Many people have smile imperfections like chipped or cracked teeth, stained or discolored enamel, uneven smiles, or gaps between teeth. Your dentist will be available to answer your questions, and the dental staff will take plenty of time going through your smile options.
Routine dental cleanings are one thing, but changing the look of your smile requires a different type of service. We offer many services to give you a polished, bright look. From professional teeth whitening, veneers, dentures, and dental implants—your dental flaws can be fixed in just a few dental visits. A few of our cosmetic dental treatments include:
- Teeth Whitening—Sometimes your smile needs a little boost. You can control the level of shading you want, from subtle touch-ups to Hollywood-style pearly whites.
- Dental Veneers—Porcelain covers can fix cosmetic dental imperfections, including chips, cracks, gaps, stains, and other flaws.
- Dental Crowns—If you have a tooth that is badly stained or cracked, you can have a dental crown custom designed to look like your natural tooth. The dental crown is a cap that covers your entire tooth and helps keep it safe and secure.
- Dental Bridges—If you are missing one or two teeth, this dental procedure creates a bridge that fills in the gap from a missing tooth. Dental bridges bond the new replacement tooth to nearby teeth.
Restorative Dental Procedures
Living with missing or damaged teeth not only changes your appearance, but it also affects the way you eat or speak. You have many options to restore a missing tooth, including dental implants, dentures, and dental bridges to restore your smile, including:
- Dental Implants—Missing teeth can be an embarrassing issue, but you have many options for tooth replacement. Dental implants are permanent replacements that allow you to eat, smile, speak, and live with confidence. Considered the gold standard of tooth replacement, dental implants look and feel just like your regular teeth.
- All-on-Four—For patients who need multiple teeth restored, this dental process utilizes four strategically placed dental implants to support full dentures that will not shift or fall out.
- Complete Dentures—This is the ideal tooth replacement if you are missing multiple teeth on your upper, lower, or both arches. Some patients don’t like the idea of surgery, making this option perfect for them. Complete dentures are comfortable and easy to maintain.
- Partial Dentures—For patients who are missing one or two teeth and do not need complete dentures; this is the perfect tooth replacement prosthetic. Partial dentures bridge the gap between two teeth and are removable.
