What Is The Best Option?

Every patient is different, and not every treatment plan will be suitable for everyone’s smile. Depending on your needs, your dentist will help guide you through choosing the best option.

In-Office Professional Treatment is done right in the chair. We will place a bleaching agent on your smile that is activated with a light. After a single visit, you will be able to see a noticeable difference in your smile.

At-home treatments are customized to your needs and completed over a few days. Your dentist will look at your smile and determine the number of trays that you will need. Then, you will use the whitening agent and light every day for the length of time assigned by your dentist. Enjoy your bright smile within a few weeks.

Bonding and Contouring are methods used to make your smile appear more uniform and even. Bonding is a process that adds composite resin to a tooth that is chipped or stained. If you have teeth that feel too long or misshapen, contouring can shave down a small part of the tooth to even the smile out. This will optimize the appearance of your smile.

Porcelain Veneers are a permanent cosmetic procedure that includes shaving down your tooth and placing a tooth-shaped shell on the front of your teeth. This irreversible treatment is how many people achieve a celebrity smile.

Taking Care Of Your New Smile

Once you have achieved your smile goals, you may be worried about how to maintain your teeth to keep your results for as long as possible. As always, we advise you to keep up with your daily oral hygiene routine including brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings. There are a few other tips you can follow to keep your smile looking fresh. If you are a normal coffee or tea drinker, try to enjoy these beverages with a straw. This will help minimize the amount of staining that can discolor your teeth. For treatments such as whitening, the results will last for several months, but you may need to repeat the process every few years as necessary.
