Dental Bonding

Would you like to ease into the world of cosmetic dentistry? This is an easy way to do just that. If you have a crack or gap that needs to be filled in, we can help you by employing our cosmetic bonding techniques. Bonding works much like fillings in that a tooth-colored material is directly applied to your tooth and then shaped to create the desired result.

Professional Teeth Whitening

If your yellow teeth have you feeling blue, we can help! In our office, we offer professionally-directed take-home custom whitening trays designed to maximize the brightness of your smile. Whitening in the comfort of your own home is ideal in most cases, which is why we’re proud to offer these safe and effective NiteWhite trays!

Dental Veneers

If the years have been hard on your teeth, there is a way to cover up the damage! Dental veneers are thin, shell-like pieces of tooth-colored material that can be used to quickly hide any obvious imperfections in your teeth. Fractured, chipped, misshapen, uneven, and badly discolored teeth can all be covered up by this method.

Mercury-Free Fillings

We can directly bond the increasingly popular tooth-colored material to your tooth to create a strong, beautiful restoration that won’t leave you with any of those dark metallic splotches. We can even removed old amalgam fillings if you’d like.

Gum Reshaping

If you suffer from an overly gummy smile, we can help by gently reshaping your gums in order to create the aesthetic you desire. We use a soft-tissue laser to gently sculpt your gums quickly, accurately, and painlessly. This procedure does not require stitches and does not result in bleeding. Plus, your newly reshaped gums will heal quickly.

Complete Smile Makeover

Want to change EVERYTHING about your smile? We can make it happen too. If you would benefit from a complete cosmetic overhaul, we will help you combine any number of our cosmetic procedures to create the smile you want.

We’ll also be able to make a wax mockup of your finished smile so that you can see just what it will look like. If you’re not 100% happy, we’ll work with you until you are!

Get Started!

We hope that you have been inspired to boost the appearance of your smile this holiday season. The above treatments are just a few examples of what we can do for you. To take the next step, all you have to do is contact us online or call our office today at 815-768-1615!
