Cosmetic Dentistry

If the edges of front teeth are only mildly chipped or worn, many times some simple polishing and smoothing will greatly improve esthetics.  Other times, white composite fillings may be placed to restore tooth structure that may have worn or chipped away.  If the wear is more significant, veneers or crowns may be a better option to provide optimal esthetics and strength.  If there is a long history of chipping or wear, it could be a sign of a grinding habit called bruxism, and a custom nightguard (clear mouthpiece worn at night) may help prevent future problems.  Always feel free to ask us about ways to improve the esthetics of your teeth!

We offer all modern cosmetic options in our office, including professional whitening, veneers, crowns, implants, white (tooth-colored) fillings, bonding and esthetic tooth replacement options (porcelain bridges).  We also offer Invisalign which is a clear, esthetic alternative to braces.  In some cases, we will involve a periodontist or orthodontist to assist in positioning the teeth or gums to ensure a more predictable esthetic outcome.  If you have any questions about the services we offer, feel free to call for a consultation to discuss your options.
