The Benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry
We and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) believe that it is important to maintain a healthy-looking smile. We believe that cosmetic dentistry is just as important as general dentistry. One benefit of cosmetic dentistry includes having increased self-esteem. When meeting someone new, the first thing noticed is their smile, and having a good first impression is always important. Sometimes people who have crooked teeth experience chronic headaches, with teeth straightening, their headaches have been known to be resolved. In order to cause the least amount of stress on your mouth, we provide minimally invasive treatment options.

Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we utilize a tray whitening system. This tray whitening system is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the gel for a short period of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 – 8 shades!

Bonding & White Fillings
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth.
A composite resin is used on the affected tooth or teeth. It is molded and sculpted over an adhesive gel that is placed on the tooth. After the resin has been applied an ultraviolet light is used to harden the resin, which is then polished to give you a fresh, new smile.
Bonding is an obvious improvement over unsightly silver amalgam fillings. With the advancements in dental technology, bonding usually lasts for over 10 years. It is a safe, affordable, and attractive solution for many dental problems.
