Tired of masking your smile because you don’t like the way your teeth look? A smile makeover can be a big boost to your confidence and self-esteem. With a total smile makeover, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, gapped teeth, crooked teeth, stained teeth, and missing teeth can be completely transformed into the smile of your dreams. This is done through a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental treatments, including white fillings, cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, crowns, orthodontics, bridgework and dental implants.
Many people associate professional teeth whitening with movie stars and brides – but in fact, it is the most popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Stained or discolored teeth are very common among adults of all ages, and come from a variety of sources, such as: coffee, red wine, soda, tea, tobacco, and some medications. Those of us with stained teeth tend to brush more vigorously; this can remove the enamel from your teeth, causing further discoloration and serious dental problems. Others use over-the-counter whitening kits, but they do not have the prescription strength and lasting effects of a professional teeth-whitening procedure.
The key to a long lasting bright, white smile is to have them whitened by a cosmetic dentist before discoloration becomes too severe. Whether you choose an in-office or at-home procedure, you can be sure to receive solid advice, professional care, and a smile that will knock their socks off!

Dental And Cosmetic Implants
If you lose one or more teeth due to tooth decay, gum disease, or injury, there is hope. Implants are changing the way people live! Implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that the implants appear natural and that the facial contours will be preserved. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life. When dental implants are place, the bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Dental implants also prevent the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Porcelain veneers resist stains and better mimic the light reflecting properties in natural teeth.
Veneers are routinely used to fix: teeth that are discolored for any reason, teeth that are worn down, teeth that are chipped or broken, teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped, or teeth with gaps between them. Getting a porcelain veneer usually requires three trips to the dentist – one for a consultation and two to make and apply the veneers. One tooth or many teeth can simultaneously undergo the veneering process at the same time.
Dental bonding is a popular treatment option because it provides a successful attachment between the filling material and the tooth’s original enamel and dentin. It looks like the original tooth and functions like it as well. Tooth bonding is used in several different ways, but is probably most useful for repairing chipped teeth. Bonding materials are more natural in color and can be designed to perfectly match the surrounding teeth making it difficult to discern there was ever a broken tooth.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available- complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
A complete denture or full denture replaces all of the teeth in a dental arch, that is upper or lower. All of our dentures are custom made to reflect the size, slope, color, and arrangement that closely matches the facial structure and desires of each individual patient. When teeth are removed, to accommodate a full denture, the denture is made in advance so that the patient does not have to leave the office without teeth.
A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink base, which is connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position. A precision partial denture is removable and has internal attachments rather than clasps that attach to the adjacent teeth.
