Now is the perfect time to think about giving your smile a makeover. Dentistry technology today offers more options for whitening, straightening or improving your smile than at any previous time in history. If you have been wanting a boost of confidence and a new look, there are several options to think about for redesigning your smile.
Implants are now one of the most preferred options for permanently replacing your natural teeth. They offer many advantages over traditional dentures and bridges such as their natural appearance, increased comfort, durability and more. Learn more about dental implants.
The DEKA CO2 laser is a powerful laser that allows surgical treatment of soft tissue with no inflammation or pain! It allows us to treat and remove unwanted inflamed and infected tissue with healing times far less than any traditional incisions made by a scalpel. This leads to a shorter healing time and less discomfort overall.
A veneer is useful for whitening a person’s smile when the stains in the teeth are deeper. A thin porcelain veneer is molded to fit on the front of the teeth and applied with a strong dental bonding agent. The veneers are realistic-looking and stain resistant. They also last much longer than a chemical teeth whitening procedure - up to 15 years. Veneers are also useful for correcting the appearance of chipped or cracked teeth.

There are several different methods of teeth whitening that can be performed in a single office visit. Teeth whitening will usually involve a professional cleaning, followed by the application of a special bleaching gel to the teeth. Some whitening procedures require an ultraviolet light in order to activate the bleaching chemicals in the gel. A teeth whitening procedure takes about 45 minutes to complete and can make your teeth up to eight shades whiter. Whitening can also be performed with a laser. Learn more about teeth whitening.
If a person has a “gummy” smile or if the gums have receded, a cosmetic gum surgery can correct it. Gum tissue can be removed and shaped to make the teeth appear larger and the mouth more uniform. Alternatively, tissue can be added to a receding gum line in order to show less of the teeth structures. Cosmetic gum surgery can be performed with a scalpel or a laser, typically under a local anesthetic.
These are just a few options for a smile makeover. There are many other procedures available, so contact us about how to give your smile a beautiful, updated look!
