Our Most Popular Cosmetic Procedures

These cosmetic services could revive your smile and give you the confidence you’ve been looking for.
Smiles are a unique asset that everyone has, and a healthy smile certainly goes a long way. In fact, one survey found that 96 percent of people think that an attractive smile makes them physically more attractive, and 74 percent said that having an unattractive smile can affect professional success. Ask yourself these questions:
Q. Do you smile less often than you would like?
Q. Do imperfect teeth keep you from smiling in public?
Q. Do you think a more attractive smile would make you feel more confident?
If you said yes to any—or all—of these questions, then consider these top cosmetic procedures that we offer:
Teeth whitening
This non-invasive procedure boasts a smile that’s up to seven shades whiter in under an hour. You can’t top results that are this instant. No whitening toothpastes or over-the-counter gels are going to get you visibly whiter results like you can get in your local dentist’s office. Our teeth whitening system uses a high-quality bleaching agent that breaks up stains caused by sodas, coffee and dark fruits.
Bottom Line: Visibly brighter teeth after one treatment; only takes an hour; more effective than OTC whitening products
Porcelain Veneers
If you’re looking for a way to hide minor dental problems like small gaps, overlapping teeth, cracks and chips, misshapen teeth and more severe stains, veneers can be a great way to liven up your smile and conceal these little issues. These thin porcelain shells are specially cemented to the front of your teeth to cover over stains, breaks and everything in between. Before veneers are attached, we will shave down some of your tooth’s enamel to make room for the veneers. Using a special resin, we will bond the veneers to the front of your teeth to give you a straighter, brighter smile.
Bottom Line: Minimally invasive; minimal tooth preparation
Dental Implants
If you’re suffering with tooth loss you may have considered a host of options, including dentures. However, if you’re looking for a long-term solution for replacing your missing teeth, dental implants can promise just that. We first insert a small implant, which looks like a tiny screw, into the jawbone and then give it time to heal and fuse together with surrounding tissue. Once the recovery process is finished, we will complete your smile by putting a natural-looking artificial tooth on top of the implant. This tooth will also be designed to match the rest of your smile, so you don’t have to worry about your smile being mismatched.
Bottom Line: Permanent tooth replacement; can’t develop cavities; chewing and speaking are easier; artificial tooth is custom designed to look like the rest of your teeth; increased confidence
If you’re interested in any of these cosmetic procedures, we’ll want to see you in our office first for a consultation. Once of these treatments could finally promise you the smile you want.
