-Crowns and Bridges: a crown, also known as a cap, is used to completely cover a damaged tooth. The crown works to improve the overall appearance of the damaged tooth. Crowns are made of a variety of materials, most commonly requested in porcelain or ceramic to match the rest of your teeth. Other materials include acrylic, gold and other metal alloys. Bridges are used to fill the space of multiple missing teeth, and are often used in conjunction with crowns.
-Veneers (Lumineers): veneers are thin pieces of porcelain placed over your existing teeth to cover or correct their appearance. They are primarily used to improve the appearance of the teeth, but are also at times used to protect them from damage.
Teeth Whitening: perhaps one of the most mainstream cosmetic procedures, teeth whitening is a process used to brighten the smile. Teeth whitening is aimed at removing surface stains and lightening the tooth enamel. Though you may see great results in one sitting, stains can return over time and the teeth may require routine whitening to maintain your results,
Implants: dental implants are used to replace one or multiple teeth that have been lost due to periodontal disease or injury. The implant is essentially an artificial root that is placed directly into the jaw to replace the missing tooth or teeth. A bridge may be used in conjunction with the implants if there are several teeth missing.
Tooth-colored Fillings: in the past, the only type of filling offered did not match the teeth. Many people received fillings of silver or gold. Tooth-colored fillings, also known as composites, are used to fill cavities, as well as reshape/fill chipped and broken teeth.
Invisalign: Invisalign is the most discreet way to straighten your teeth. Your mouth is fitted with a see through, removable aligner to correct crooked teeth.
Bonding: bonding is the polishing and shaping of composite resin to correct chipped and discolored teeth. It is typically one of the most inexpensive cosmetic dental procedures.
Full Mouth Restorations and Smile Makeovers: full mouth restorations and smile makeovers use a variety of cosmetic dental procedures to correct the appearance of severely damaged teeth.
