Our smiles often are the first feature that people notice about each other, so it stands to reason that many of us want our teeth to look their best. We approach dental treatments with aesthetics in mind and although we offer amalgam fillings to patients who want them, we also offer tooth-colored fillings and other elective cosmetic treatments that help make smiles look their best.
Tooth colored fillings You don’t have to have a mouth full of dark-colored, amalgam fillings. We use tooth-colored materials when filling cavities, which can be matched to the shade of your natural tooth structure. The end result is a restoration that blends beautifully with your teeth.
Porcelain crowns Teeth that are severely damaged by trauma or decay may require more than a filling to repair. A crown made from tooth-colored porcelain can be bonded onto a tooth to cover and strengthen a damaged tooth.
Veneers The overall appearance of teeth that are chipped, stained, crooked or improperly spaced can be improved with this cosmetic treatment. Veneers are ultra-thin sheets of porcelain that are permanently bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth.
Whitening One of the simplest and least invasive methods for improving the appearance of your teeth is whitening treatments. We offer a take-home system that includes custom-made bleaching trays that fit over your teeth like a plastic orthodontic retainer. The whitening system we offer contains fluoride to remineralize your teeth surfaces, which helps prevent sensitivity that often is associated with whitening treatments. The treatment can be done in as little as 15 minutes, or can be applied overnight while you’re asleep. This system enables you to brighten and whiten your teeth gradually by several shades.
MI Paste Those who experience tooth sensitivity from teeth whitening treatment might consider this fluoride toothpaste to alleviate the sensitivity. It also helps prevent caries and white spot lesions on teeth.
