Have you taken a look in the mirror lately and immediately felt the pang that comes with feeling shocked by your smile? A yellow or darkened smile can cause you to shy away from your usual social life and may make you feel like you need to camouflage your smile with your hand while you speak. Rather than feeling sheepish, we’d prefer you felt confident and proud of your grin. Fortunately, we offer a variety of cosmetic treatments like teeth whitening that will help you achieve a whiter smile. Wondering which one to choose for the sparkling smile you have always wanted?

Teeth whitening includes the use of a bleaching gel that lifts surface-level stains from your teeth. This may include common discoloration caused by smoking, consuming staining foods or drinks, lax hygiene, or even the process of aging that naturally wears your teeth. By choosing to attain a whiter smile with whitening, you can expect a smile around six shades whiter.
Some patients find themselves dealing with stains that are serious and often isolated. Perhaps you have a small dark dot on your tooth that does not necessarily warrant a full treatment of teeth whitening. Maybe one of your teeth is discolored but the others are fine. We may suggest dental bonding, during which we will cover the staining with a thin layer of composite – this is a synthetic resin material we will color-match to surrounding tooth tissue.
Are you dealing with serious intrinsic stains? Perhaps you want to accomplish more than a whiter smile. For an extensive smile transformation, we may suggest porcelain veneers. You will achieve a whiter smile with the placement of these very thin ceramic shells, which we bond to your teeth. You may also customize nearly every aspect of your smile for an amazing improvement.
