3 Quick Cosmetic Fixes
Lots of people are not happy with the appearance of their pearly whites, yet they quickly poo-poo the possibility of fixing their smiles with cosmetic dentistry. They may assume that it will be just too expensive. Or that it will require multiple trips to the dentist — and who has time for that? They may even consider it frivolous or vain.
The truth is that while making cosmetic corrections to your teeth may at first glance seem to be just about appearance, its benefits go much deeper than that. When you are able to smile easily and freely again, your self-esteem will improve, you will be more confident in social situations and in the professional realm, and you will be happier.
Not all cosmetic procedures require a huge investment of money or time. We offer techniques that will give you a gorgeous grin in just one office visit. And they are affordable to patients who are on a budget.

Professional teeth whitening is an easy way to lift away stains and brighten your smile, giving you a more youthful and vibrant appearance. We use the Opalescence take-home system, which delivers professional results with the convenience of whitening your teeth at home.
We will create custom trays from impressions of your mouth. Unlike the trays that come with drugstore products, ours fit your teeth perfectly and provide perfect distribution of gel. We will supply you with the high-powered Opalescence whitening agent (a stronger formulation if you plan to whiten during the day, weaker if you plan to wear your trays at night) and send you home. You should experience minimal if any sensitivity, but if you do, you can call us and we will tweak your treatment.
If your teeth are chipped, cracked, worn down, stained, gapped, or even a bit crooked, tooth bonding can give you a smile that looks flawless. In fact, it covers many of the same issues as dental veneers, but is a much simpler, less expensive procedure.
Tooth bonding can generally be done in one office visit and does not require anesthesia (except if the area to be bonded is decayed). We take a durable composite resin material that’s perfectly matched to the shade of your enamel. We apply it, meticulously mold it, harden it with a special light, then polish it after making any final adjustments to the shape. The resin blends in with your tooth perfectly.
Tooth bonding isn’t quite as durable as veneers, but results should last years with good care.
This subtle technique utilizes a high-tech dental laser to remove small layers of enamel. It is a good method for fixing teeth that are too long, pointed, uneven, overlapping, or oddly shaped. Because we touch only the enamel and not the inner structure of the tooth, the procedure is painless. Teeth contouring generally requires just one visit to our office.
