Procedures You May Want:
Cosmetic Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening or “teeth bleaching” can whiten your natural teeth, removing years of stubborn stains. Depending on your provider’s offerings, this procedure can be done in the dental office or at home. If you have crowns or veneers, teeth bleaching may not be the best idea for you, as artificial teeth won’t be bleached. Consult with your dentist before you try teeth whitening.
Cosmetic Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin shells made out of porcelain that are designed to look like your tooth. A veneer can be used to treat cosmetic conditions like chipped teeth, crooked teeth, or even to fill in large gaps between the teeth.
Cosmetic Dental Implants
A dental implant is a device designed to replace a tooth that is missing, often due to an accident. The implant is usually made out of titanium and is permanently placed into the jawbone through surgery. A dental implant acts as the root of the tooth and is used to anchor an artificial tooth, or teeth.
Cosmetic Teeth Shaping
We can reshape a problematic tooth by filing or removing some of the enamel. If you have a tooth that sits a little higher than the others or is uneven, this is an easy fix.
