VENEERS & GUM LIFT
There are many ways to brighten, whiten, and improve your smile. Porcelain veneers are increasingly becoming one of the most popular solutions for people with teeth that need more elaborate measures to look their best.
Porcelain veneers are routinely used to fix discolored teeth (from root canal treatment, tetracycine stains, or discolored resin fillings), chipped, worn teeth, and teeth that are slightly misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped . As the name implies, porcelain veneers are thin shells that go over the front of your teeth to create a smile that is straight and bright.
Sometimes to correct a “gummy smile” or very short, unproportional teeth, a gum lift is required before placement of veneers to produce a beautiful, natural result.
Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking, and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
To accomplish the whitening of your teeth, we utilize several options. The first option is an at-home tray whitening system that is completed in 2 steps. The first step is to take an impression of your teeth. With this impression, we’ll craft you custom whitening trays that you can use over and over. Finally, you will take the whitening gel and put it in the gel for a short period of time over a period of a few days. This often results in a whiter smile of 4 – 8 shades!
The second option is an in-office whitening system that uses a safe whitening gel called Opalescense. The active whitening ingredient is stronger than the at-home system. This combination allows us to provide you with teeth that are 6 – 10 shades lighter in about an hour!
