Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
Stains and discoloration can typically be eliminated from the surface of the enamel with professional teeth whitening techniques. Teeth whitening is an effective, safe, and conservative cosmetic choice. Teeth whitening is also a very versatile solution which can be performed in the dental office or in the comfort of your own home.
A moldable, tooth-colored material known as resin composite can be applied to the teeth to repair or rebuild the structure of a tooth. Teeth that have been chipped or broken can be restored to a more natural and attractive shape when resin composite is bonded directly to the enamel. In cosmetic dentistry, we also use composite bonding to cover or conceal small areas of discoloration.
Dental Implant Services
Dental implants are much more than cosmetic replacements for your teeth. Replacing missing teeth is a matter of health and your ability to function normally. Implants are the closest alternative to natural teeth and are the solution of choice for most patients. In addition to dental implants, you can replace your missing teeth and enhance your smile with fixed bridges, partials, or dentures.
When a strong, thin layer or porcelain is bonded to the front teeth, stains, cracks, and other flaws are immediately erased. Veneers are a conservative and permanent cosmetic option. Inlays or Onlays Inlays and onlays are top-quality porcelain or gold fillings that are prepared in a dental lab and then placed into the tooth by a dentist. These long-lasting fillings are both durable and attractive.
