Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry includes any dental work done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Individuals who are unhappy with their smile are able to create a smile they are more confident in.

The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing, as well as regularity of the teeth are all characteristics that give your overall oral appearance. Any of these characteristics can be enhanced if wanted, to give a stunning look to the mouth.

We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some options include:

Whitening - Including Zoom!

Many people find more confidence in their smile by simply making their teeth whiter. Our office uses several methods including Zoom!, passive tray whitening, and professional strength white strips.

Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It is safe, effective, and fast. In just over an hour of treatment, you will see dramatically whiter teeth. The convenience of Zoom!, in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays, makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The Zoom! Whitening System is simple. It begins with short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the Zoom! whitening gel, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure. With amazing results, 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, which are worn for about 3 hours or overnight. The entire process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use.

Three different strengths of gel may be used, however the higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. 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 for several months.
