We offer the following cosmetic dentistry solutions to bring out the best in your smile:

Porcelain Veneers (and other porcelain restorations)

Porcelain is a premier restorative material when it comes to achieving a superior esthetic result. Porcelain has the texture and translucency of real enamel, plus it can be expertly shaded to look clean and natural.

For a veneer, the porcelain can be sculpted and polished into an ultra-thin shell that adheres directly to the front surface of the teeth. The shape and size of the veneer can be customized for each tooth, making it possible to enhance the look of a single tooth or multiple teeth with incredible accuracy. We often recommend veneers as a durable cosmetic option which can conceal teeth that are severely discolored, chipped, or incorrectly spaced. Veneers are useful for closing gaps between the front teeth and for adding length or width to improve the proportion of the teeth.

We’ll often suggest porcelain veneers when your cosmetic interest is limited to the outer surface of the front teeth. Full-coverage porcelain crowns and other porcelain restorations may be recommend when your cosmetic interest extends to the back teeth or to all surfaces of the front teeth.

Professional Whitening

Staining and discoloration can make even healthy teeth appear dull and unattractive. Stained teeth can make you look (and feel) older than your true age. Studies show that discolored teeth are also known to have a negative impact on your first impressions and your professional interactions.

If years of tea and coffee have left your teeth discolored, or if you are noticing the effects of your medications, your smoking habit, or the natural aging process, you may benefit from our professional whitening services.

Professional teeth whitening works by eliminating stains that have accumulated on the surface of the enamel, and the process can be safely repeated as necessary to maintain a youthfully white smile. It’s a safe technique that does not strip the enamel or damage your existing restorations. However, all whitening products are not created alike, and they should be used under professional supervision to avoid sensitivity to the teeth and gums.
