Cosmetic Dentistry – Teeth Whitening and Bleaching – Porcelain Veneers

Teeth whitening and beaching by a dentist

Most dentists are of the opinion that professionally dispensed take-home teeth whitening kits can provide the best results over a longer period of time. At-home procedures consist of placing a bleaching gel into a tray (night-guard) that has been custom fitted for your mouth. Your dentist can advise you of the appropriate type of application and the length of time needed to whiten your teeth. Teeth whitening may be the ideal way to enhance your confidence in your smile.

Porcelain Dental Veneers

What are dental veneers? Dental veneers are extremely thin pieces of tooth shaped and shaded porcelain that are bonded onto the front of teeth. They are a beautiful way to correct stained, chipped, or crooked teeth. By placing glass-like ceramic porcelain on the surface of teeth, we can provide patients with bright, straight, and natural looking smiles.

White Composite Fillings

Today’s white cosmetic fillings are quickly replacing yesterday’s silver fillings. They not only restore the natural appearance of the tooth, but also can strengthen the tooth and require less removal of tooth structure. Ask us where tooth colored fillings may be appropriate for your teeth.

We may suggest other procedures including teeth whitening/bleaching, recontouring, veneers and bonding to improve the appearance of your teeth and the way you talk and chew.

Porcelain Crowns

In the past our choice for crowns was porcelain fused over metal or all gold. Today’s all ceramic crowns (porcelain with no metal) appear more natural and eliminate the dark line at the gum line so common with other crowns.


Dental bonding is a procedure in which a moldable enamel resin is sculpted to the tooth surface, hardened, and then polished to match the natural tooth enamel. Dental bonding can repair cracked, chipped, and discolored teeth as well as replace silver amalgam fillings. Tooth bonding offers several benefits for patients. It is quick affordable, painless, and long lasting. It is a great alternative to more extensive cosmetic dentistry such as porcelain veneers and crowns.
