Cosmetic dentistry refers to the use of bleaching, veneers, crowns, orthodontics, and modern materials to provide an better looking appearance. Bleaching - Bleaching of teeth involves using a peroxide product that is specifically made for bleaching teeth. Very good results can usually be achieved through the use of these products and their use is usually the first step in most cosmetic cases. Our office uses a custom tray system that is specifically made to fit the patient. The trays can be used at night and are very convenient. We also sell Crest Professional Whitestrips, which are also effective, but not as strong, and only cover the front teeth.
Veneers - Veneers are porcelain or resin coverings that are made to fit on the front of the teeth. They can be used to fill spaces between teeth, cover discolorations and other problems. Usually a small amount of the tooth surface must be removed to give the best results.
Resin Fillings - Resin or white fillings are an alternative to metal fillings and can be used in many places. They are not quite as strong as metal fillings but obviously look better.
