During an office visit, your dental professional will apply the whitening gel and, depending on the system being used, will shine a light source directly onto the teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 90 minutes with immediate results.
We offer the Zoom whitening system at our office.
Home teeth whitening
Usually, dental anesthetic is not necessary and this technique is a very safe and effective way to improve your smile.
Lengthening typically would involve adding composite (tooth colored filling material) to the ends of teeth that may be short or uneven. Reshaping and lengthening are very simple ways to help improve a patients smile and esthetic value. We would happy to discuss and answer any questions you would have about these simple cosmetic techniques.
A tooth colored composite filling material is generally used to complete bonding procedures. This is many times considered an "additive" procedure whereby the enamel of your tooth is not removed but composite is added to give your teeth a better look. Therefore, bonding is a great way to achieve a nice smile without "cutting" or dramatically changing your tooth. Come in for a consultation to see if bonding will help you achieve the smile you always wanted.
If your natural teeth are severely uneven or out of alignment, preparation of your teeth will be necessary to achieve a great smile. Veneers require more time and materials and therefore your cost for these will be more than that of bonding, reshaping and whitening. Veneers are a more conservative approach than crowns.
