Is your smile filled with permanent discoloration that teeth whitening struggles to fix or have cracks and chips that you’d prefer to cover up quickly? Porcelain veneers utilize ultra-thin sheaths of ceramic to hide these imperfections while still looking incredibly natural. Once bonded to your natural teeth, your friends and family members won’t know the difference between your actual teeth and your veneers! With proper care, they should last between 10 and 15 years.
Minor cracks or chips can happen, especially if you’re active in contact sports. Of course, enamel wears down over time and becomes more fragile, resulting in minor damage as well. If your teeth are healthy but appear damaged, cosmetic bonding can help! This treatment uses composite resin that is blended and shaded to match your existing teeth. It’s also considered to be an affordable alternative to veneers, especially if you only have a few teeth to repair.
Tooth enamel dulls over time, especially if you drink many staining foods and beverages. When your teeth lose some of their luster, teeth whitening can invigorate its appearance and give you newfound confidence in your smile! Our dental office offers both in-office teeth whitening for fast results while our take-home whitening kits provide convenience for those on the go. In-office teeth whitening only takes about one hour, while take-home whitening can be performed over the course of two weeks.
Dr. Johnson is specially trained to perform adult orthodontics, which is why his dental office provides revolutionary treatments like Invisalign! This alternative to traditional metal hardware is ideal for those who want to keep their current appearance as well as avoid the inconveniences typically found with braces. Their transparent appearance ensures that no one notices that you’re undergoing treatment. They are also removable, which allows you to eat the foods you want and maintain your current oral care technique.
