Porcelain Veneers – A porcelain facing cemented over the front side of the teeth to change not only color but shapes and length as well! For a small fee we offer "wax–up" models of your teeth showing the results before any treatment is started. Completed in 2 appointments: 1-2 hours average for the first prep appointment, 1.5 hr average for the seat appointment (for multiple veneers).
Bonding –Tooth colored ceramic material is bonded to the tooth with super adhesives to repair chips, breaks, gaps, or correct discolorations. Trimmed and polished to a smooth and natural finish. Completed in 1 visit! Most appointments are about 1 hr.
Tooth Whitening – Take Home Kit: Comfortable plastic trays are made from molds of your teeth. Trays and Bleaching Gel Kit are used at home for about 1.5 hr a day. One week later visit us to evaluate your progress and see the big difference! Results are seen immediately. Chair side Treatment: Spend 1.5 hours with us and get a jump-start on your tooth whitening process! We apply a stronger gel to your teeth and use a special light to activate the bleaching ingredient. Some patients are advised to do some at home treatment to fully "settle "color. Great for smokers, coffee drinkers, and patients with age discoloration! Note: Bonded fillings or porcelain restorations will not be affected by the treatment.
Enamel Shaping – This safe and effective procedure involves the reshaping of the enamel. Tooth corners, sides, or lengths can be improved to change the overall look of the teeth. No anesthetic is needed and most cases take about 20 minutes. Patients with minor chips, or slight crowding are good candidates.
