Dentist and Team
Sometimes the simplest way to address a problem with your smile’s appearance is to cover it up. Porcelain veneers are useful for hiding misshapen teeth, discoloration that doesn’t respond to whitening (such as tetracycline stains), small chips and cracks, and gaps. These restorations are strong, durable, and resist stains very well compared to natural enamel. For these reasons, veneers are often the cosmetic treatment of choice for patients who are worried about multiple cosmetic flaws.
Like porcelain veneers, the material used for cosmetic bonding is very versatile when it comes to making corrections. We can apply the composite resin to stained or damaged areas of the tooth; the material can then be shaded and molded to look as if it’s simply a natural part of the surrounding enamel. One advantage bonding has over veneers is that it can typically be done in just one visit; veneers usually require at least two appointments.
KoR® Teeth Whitening
The effectiveness of the whitening products you find at the store might vary, but KoR is the industry leader in teeth whitening and is proven to be a reliable way to brighten a smile that has dulled over the years. The gel used for this procedure is absorbed into the teeth so that it can dissolve and remove the molecules that are forming stains. This procedure can be completed in less than an hour, and its effects can last a long time with the right maintenance.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
In addition to our in-practice treatment, we offer whitening kits that you can bring home with you and use as appropriate according to your own schedule. The kits we provide contain whitening solutions that are stronger and more effective than over-the-counter products. We offer KoR and Opalescence Go, but we also have kits that are custom-made for your needs. Generally speaking, you can expect an at-home whitening process to start showing results after about two weeks.
