Restore Function To Your Damaged Teeth

 

It’s impossible to overstate the emotional, social and even professional benefits that smiling with confidence can give you. If you find you cover your mouth when you smile, or even hold back your smile because you don’t want to show your teeth, you should consider what cosmetic dentistry — the art of smile enhancement — can do for you.

There’s so much that can be done these days to improve the appearance of a person’s smile — at any age. From powerful, professional whitening treatments to amazingly realistic porcelain veneers to state-of-the-art dental implants, there’s a wide range of exciting possibilities. So if there’s something that’s been bothering you about the way your teethlook, let us help you figure out what can be done to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of.

The first step in any smile makeover is a thorough dental examination to make sure that your cosmetic problems really are just that, and not a sign of underlying dental disease. Once we’ve made sure you’re healthy, we can talk about ways to enhance your smile cosmetically.

Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

A successful smile makeover is a team effort between you and the dentists who treat you. Depending on which procedures you choose, other highly skilled professionals such as dental lab technicians may also play a crucial role. Working together, we can make sure you achieve the most beautiful and longest-lasting results. Some common cosmetic dentistry procedures include:

  • Teeth Whitening, to brighten a faded or discolored smile
  • Dental Bonding, to repair small chips or cracks
  • Porcelain Veneers, for repairing larger chips and cracks, and
    reshaping teeth
  • Dental Crowns, to replace larger amounts of missing tooth structure
  • Dental Implants, for the longest-lasting tooth replacement

  • Orthodontic Treatment, to move teeth into the right position — because when things look right, they generally are right

Your Smile Makeover

The most important job you have as a member of your own smile makeover team is to communicate to us exactly what you don’t like about your smile and how you’d like it to be different. Before our first consultation, please give some thought to the following questions:

  1. What do you like or dislike about the color, size, shape and spacing of
    your teeth?
  2. Are you pleased with how much your teeth show, both when you smile and when your lips are relaxed?
  3. Do you want teeth that are perfectly aligned and a bright “Hollywood White,” or would you prefer a more natural look with slight color, shape and shade variations?
  4. Would you like more or less of your gums to show when you smile?

We find it extremely helpful to see pictures you have collected — of smiles you like, smiles you don’t like, and/or photos of the way your own smile used to look, if that’s the result you’re aiming for. So let’s get started on creating a smile that will make you feel as good as you look!

One thing that has not changed during this time is our commitment to the safety of you and our staff.

You may have noticed infection control has always been a top priority at our practice. Our established processes ensure you receive care that is both safe and comfortable.

Over the lifetime of our practice we have successfully prevented the transmission of many infectious diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Swine flu, H1N1, MERS, SARS in addition to our annual “flu season.” Furthermore, hepatitis in its many forms, HPV, herpes, etc. are all part of our everyday lives as your dental care team.

In addition to our standard and universal precautions we want to tell you of additional infection control procedures we have implemented. We follow the daily updates and recommendations of the American Dental Association, the CDC, and OSHA. You may notice the following changes at your next appointment:

  • ⦿ Our office will do a brief but thorough screening process prior to arriving at our office and when you arrive including taking your temperature.
  • ⦿ We have hand sanitizer present throughout our office including at the reception area when you enter and exit and ask that you please use it.
  • ⦿ We have removed difficult to clean items from our waiting rooms like magazines, children’s toys, etc.
  • ⦿ Social distancing will be considered as we allow increased space in our waiting room and the option to wait in your vehicle prior to your appointment.
  • ⦿ We request you please bring a mask for yourself to wear in our waiting room.
  • ⦿ Our staff will be wearing personal protective equipment at the highest available level which may include wearing masks and face shields for the entirety of your visit.
  • ⦿ We have installed multiple Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization Systems in our office which has proven very effective at safely filtering air within our office and killing many pathogens including SARS and other versions of coronaviruses.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you have regarding the steps we take to ensure the safety of everyone in our office. Thank you for being our patient and we look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
