Cosmetic Dentistry


Bonding is a conservative and relatively inexpensive way to improve the appearance of teeth. It is usually done in one appointment. Even though the material will eventually discolor over time, it is very durable and will provide you with a long lasting and beautiful smile.

Bonding is a good choice for the following:

  • Closing small spaces between front teeth
  • Repairing small chips, cracks, or breaks in teeth
  • Lightening a mildly discolored tooth
  • Improving the position of a slightly crooked tooth
  • Temporarily improving the appearance of teeth until a more permanent procedure can be done
Bonding on all front teeth

Porcelain Veneers

A porcelain veneer is a very thin and durable custom made piece of porcelain that can reshape your front teeth. The color of your teeth can also be made whiter. This procedure usually requires two to three visits depending on the number of teeth to be veneered and the amount of change in the shape of the teeth.

Finally you'll have the smile you've always wanted!

Veneers on upper teeth

Sometimes an over the counter whitening product such as Crest White Strips will suffice.

Or you may want a more dramatic change. We can make custom bleaching trays for you so you can whiten with a stronger material. Your custom trays have many advantages. You decide how light you want your teeth to become, how often you want to touch up, or whether you need to skip a session to reduce any temperature sensitivity.

Or, if you're in a hurry, we can do whitening in the office in one appointment. It's that easy!
