Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
There are a number of ways to whiten teeth. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate and replace any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so that they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Tooth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed after several years, and more often if you smoke and drink coffee, tea, or wine.
It is normal to experience tother sensitivity during the teeth whitening procedure, but it will subside shortly afterwards.
You will receive care instructions for your teeth and trays, and be encouraged to visit your dentist regularly to help maintain a beautiful, healthy, white smile.
Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile.
Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile. They can often be alternatives to crowns and the ideal solution in treating many dental conditions.
They are very durable and will last many years, giving you a beautiful long lasting smile. Despite such durability, veneers may need replacement in the future.
Reasons for porcelain veneers:
Cosmetically, to create a uniform, white, beautiful smile
◻︎ Crooked teeth
◻︎ Misshapen teeth
◻︎ Severely discolored or stained teeth
◻︎ Teeth that are too small or large
◻︎ Unwanted or uneven spaces
◻︎ Worn or chipped teeth
What does getting porcelain veneers involve?
A mold or impression of the teeth is taken. The teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface. A porcelain shade (color) will then be chosen by you and the dentist.
On the second visit, the teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light beam is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.
This is a safe procedure that entails one of our dentists removing any decay from your tooth. This will then be colored-filled with a very hard substance and will withstand the forces in your mouth when you bite and chew over a long period of time. A glint is created by such fillings, giving your teeth a more natural appearance overall.
If you have been carefully looking after your teeth, it is less likely that you will develop tooth decay. If you do have decay and need a filling then we recommend white fillings as a good solution, that is both aesthetic and functional.
Gum Contouring & Teeth Reshaping
Aesthetic recontouring of your teeth involves small, minimal adjustment of your teeth to reshape and level your smile. By altering the way your teeth reflect the light we can help to camouflage twisted or misshapen teeth without more invasive procedures.
By recontourig your gums, and reshaping your teeth, we can improve your confidence in your smile. Such procedures may entail:
Lengthen the appearance of your teeth by reshaping your gums.
Shorten, smoothen or level your teeth to improve your smile line.
