Professional Teeth Whitening
If you’re looking for a simple, affordable way to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile, then professional teeth whitening could be for you. Over time, it’s normal for our teeth to become dull or discolored because of the things we eat or because of the natural aging process. When that happens, you can use one of our teeth whitening treatments to get your teeth 8 to 14 shades whiter.
In-Office Whitening with Opalescence®
With Opalescence Boost, we can whiten your teeth at our office in just around 40 minutes. You’ll be able to walk out that same day with bright pearly whites! Opalescence is powerful whitening gel that also has components to reduce any potential sensitivity during the treatment.
For patients who’d rather whiten their teeth on their own time instead of at our office, we can create custom bleaching trays, specifically molded based on their teeth. We’ll give you the gel and instructions, and you’ll be all set for brightening your teeth when it’s convenient for you. While this treatment may take a little bit longer (typically 10 to 14 days), you’ll still get professional-level results.
Veneers & Lumineers®
Veneers are a popular cosmetic dental treatment because they can fix a number of different things when it comes to how your teeth look. They can be used to make teeth longer, cover severe discoloration, fix minor spacing issues, restore worn down teeth, and more! Essentially, they are super-thin shells that we bond to the front of your teeth. They’re designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, and they’re highly durable (they can last up to 20 years with proper care!). Another option is Lumineers®, which are similar to veneers but require less preparation of the teeth. Either way you go, you’ll be able to design the smile you’ve always wanted.
Orthodontics is all about fixing the way your teeth fit together, whether that’s crowding, gaps, overbites, underbites, or other kinds of misalignment. With recent advancements in dentistry, those noticeable conventional braces aren’t your only option anymore when you want a straighter smile. We provide Invisalign® as a convenient option for today’s modern patient (yes, for both kids and adults!).Learn more on our orthodontics page
