Teeth whitening – also called bleaching – is a procedure that brightens teeth that are discolored, stained, or have been darkened because of injury. It can be performed on living teeth or teeth that have had root canal treatment.
CONTOURING & SHAPING TEETH
Enhance your smile with contouring & shaping teeth. If your smile reveals chipped or irregularly shaped teeth, we can provide several options to make it more attractive while protecting your oral health. Tooth contouring and reshaping are simple procedures often used to correct minor flaws and problems such as teeth that are chipped or oddly shaped.
Contouring and shaping are used to smooth out irregular edges and angles of teeth. These procedures, sometimes called enamel shaping, slenderizing or stripping, allow for subtle, minor alterations to the length, shape or position of teeth. Teeth that are uneven or overlapping my also benefit from this treatment.
We also can improve your smile cosmetically with laminate veneers (thin pieces of specially shaped porcelain or resin that are applied to the front and sides of prepared teeth).
With bonding, a thin tooth-colored resin is attached, or bonded, to a tooth surface. The process can improve unsightly stains, spaces, cracks or chips.
A crown is a dental restoration that covers the entire tooth. Made of new, natural-looking porcelain and composite materials, there’s no more unsightly metal margins at the gum line. If you have large visible fillings when you speak or smile, crowns can eliminate the metallic look and they completely cover discolored or chipped teeth.
