Cosmetic Dentistry

This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The size, shape, color, alignment, and spacing are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be modified to give a stunning look to the mouth.

We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and non-metal crowns.

WHITENING
This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses the ZOOM in-office light activated professional whitening system, as well as the take-home tray method.

Light activated, in-office whitening is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe, effective and fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel that is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. Trays with gel are recommended afterward for maximum whitening and maintenance.

The tray method involves having impressions taken from which laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about an hour. The tray method is recommended for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take several months of use to see significant color improvement. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays should be used once or twice per month as needed.

VENEERS

Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the front of the tooth. With the advanced technology of ultra-thin ultra strong materials, we can create the most beautiful smile imaginable. The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable.  Let Dr. Smith discuss with you the benefits of a no-shot, no-drill, no-pain smile makeover.
