Clear Aligner Therapy
If you don’t like how crooked or gapped your teeth are, but you are also not thrilled with how braces might look, there’s another option. Aligner therapy is an orthodontic method where instead of having brackets and wires on your teeth, you just have to wear comfortable plastic trays. It’s a much more subtle treatment process since the aligner trays are nearly invisible! We offer Invisalign®, ClearCorrect™, and Minor Tooth Movement®. To learn more about these aligner therapies, visit our Orthodontics page!
Veneers & Lumineers®
Did you know that it’s possible to change your tooth color, shape, size, and length? Veneers and Lumineers® both involve bonding tiny sheets, or shells, of natural-looking porcelain material to the outside of your teeth to adjust how they look and to hide any flaws. They are custom-made, durable, and stain-resistant. To learn more whether either option might be right for how you want to makeover your smile, visit our Veneers and Lumineers page!
For an affordable total smile makeover, consider Snap-On Smile! With Snap-On Smile, we take an impression of your teeth in order to design a natural-looking dental appliance that snaps on over you teeth. You’ll pick the style and shade of the Snap-On Smile, and we make sure that it fits comfortably. It’s a quick, non-invasive treatment option that’ll give you a new and improved smile.
How white your teeth are can have a huge effect on the attractiveness of your smile. Whether due to normal wear and discoloration or stains from specific food or medications, we can get you back to a bright, white smile with custom-tray whitening. We design special trays that fit snugly on your teeth that you wear for a certain amount of time each day. In a couple of weeks, you’ll have a dramatically whiter smile!
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
When should I get a cosmetic procedure done?
Cosmetic dentistry is for patients who wish to enhance the appearance of their smile. Cosmetic dentistry can alter the shape, length, size, color, and alignment of your teeth. If you’re unhappy with certain aspects of your smile, you don’t have to settle. Contact our office to learn more about our cosmetic services!
How long will my teeth whitening last?
The results of your professional teeth whitening treatment can last up to three years. However, it can vary from person to person. For longer-lasting whitening results, it’s important to avoid substances, foods, and drinks that are known to cause tooth discoloration. We also encourage you to get regular dental cleanings and brush and floss every day.
How can I make my cosmetic procedures last longer?
Overall, the best way to maintain your beautiful smile makeover is to attend biannual dental cleanings and exams as well as upkeep a proper oral hygiene regimen by brushing twice daily and flossing once a day. Since every cosmetic treatment is different, we will provide you with aftercare instructions based on which cosmetic procedure you get.
