Porcelain Veneers

Beautiful porcelain is key to correcting imperfections in your smile. Dental veneers are thin sheets of porcelain which are bonded to the surface of your natural teeth, changing the color, shape, and size of your teeth to create a more uniform appearance of your smile. We custom make your porcelain veneers, which means they match the shade of your existing teeth and are individually fit to each tooth, ensuring your smile looks natural and perfect. The process requires some prior preparation of your enamel in order to create a secure bond, which is durable and lasting when properly maintained. Fix chips, cracks, fractures, discolorations, and even small gaps with porcelain veneers and get the gorgeous smile you deserve.

Full-Mouth Restorations

We assess your entire oral health, and that is true even in cosmetic dentistry. We may recommend a full-mouth restoration, which may seem overwhelming, but we’ll take you through each step of the process and ensure you’re comfortable and informed the entire way. Full-mouth restorations are great for patients with severe decay or trauma, injured teeth, significant tooth loss, or worn, damaged teeth. We’ll evaluate your unique situation and create a customized treatment plan that combines cosmetic and restorative dentistry techniques to deliver the most fantastic smile possible. We address each tooth individually, revamping your smile and focusing on your total oral health.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is the perfect treatment for patients who require more tooth structure, specifically when seeking a restoration such as a prosthetic tooth or crown. Crown lengthening can also help balance a smile and is often used in conjunction with recontouring procedures to even the ratios between gum tissue and enamel. Crown lengthening can be performed on a single tooth, or a series of teeth exposing a natural, broad smile and even your gum line. Ask us how crown lengthening can benefit your smile and change its aesthetic.

Gum Recontouring

When you smile, are your gums the first thing you notice? Prominent gum tissue can make a smile seem unbalanced, however our cosmetic gum recontouring can reshape your gums to create a more even smile. We’ll expose more enamel and create a better ratio of gum to tooth. This procedure can also help correct receding gums, which can occur from medication, genetics, or other health issues, and can shrink gum pockets making them easier to clean for patients suffering from gum disease. Get a harmonious smile with a simple gum recontouring procedure.

Composite Bonding

Imperfections in your smile can really affect your confidence. With composite bonding, we can correct chips, cracks, gaps, and other irregularities quickly and easily. We’ll sculpt tooth-colored composite resin onto the surface of your teeth, hiding imperfections and making your teeth appear naturally perfect once cured. Composite bonding is a conservative alternative to traditional porcelain veneers and are effective in altering the appearance of your smile. You deserve an even, beautiful smile, and composite bonding makes it easy!

Tooth Recontouring

Are your canine teeth too long? Do your teeth have ridges or bumps? If so, you may be a candidate for a tooth recontouring procedure. We reshape your tooth’s enamel, shortening teeth that are too long, creating a more even smile. We can even smooth out bumps and ridges with tooth recontouring, so your smile feels as beautiful as it looks. In many cases, we combine tooth recontouring with other cosmetic treatments specifically tailored for your individual smile. Ask us if tooth recontouring is right for you.

Smile Whitening

A picture-perfect magazine smile is possible with our smile whitening treatments. A radiant white smile is made easy with either our in-office whitening or take-home treatments which eliminate surface stains caused by aging, tobacco, medications, trauma, or certain foods like coffee and red wine. We use Zoom! Whitening treatments in our office, which offer instant results for patients who have a special engagement in the near future. If you prefer to whiten in the comfort of your own home, we provide customized trays which are loaded with a proprietary whitening gel and offer professional results comfortably.
