Teeth Contouring / Crown Lengthening / Gum Recontouring

Over time, your teeth can get banged up. You could have small chips that, while not affecting your chewing, still look bad. Even completely natural teeth that have never faced an injury or accident can naturally be a bit irregular. With teeth contouring, our dentists can carefully remove a small amount of enamel to smooth out any problems or to shorten teeth that are longer than their neighbors. The process is painless.

And if your gumline rests too far over your teeth, it will make your teeth look so short that people might wonder if they’re still your baby teeth. Dental crown lengthening and gum recontouring can make your teeth look longer and healthier by carefully reshaping your gums. This exposes more of your tooth and gets rid of that “gummy” smile.

Teeth Whitening

If you drink coffee every day or have been enjoying red wine for a while, then your teeth have probably lost their luster. Healthy smoothies and a healthy diet can still cause staining because of the rich colors of healthy foods, (for instance blueberries). Even just plaque buildup can make your teeth look yellow and old. We offer in-house and take-home teeth whitening systems that can improve the color of your teeth and give you back the dazzling white smile you had in your youth. Teeth whitening used to be reserved for the rich and famous (actors, politicians, and people like that), but technology has progressed to where this treatment is widely available and affordable.

Tooth Bonding

Teeth contouring won’t help much with the color of your teeth, and teeth whitening won’t correct any chips or imperfections. To correct both the color and shape of your teeth, try tooth bonding. In this procedure, our dentists flow a thin layer of resin material over the front of your problem teeth. This fills in any chips and covers over staining with a natural, healthy-looking color. Tooth bonding is a quick and affordable cosmetic dentistry options to get results fast.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are ultra-thin shells of porcelain that are individually made to match the shape and color of your teeth. As with tooth bonding, veneers are placed on the front of your teeth to cover up and seal any chips, cracks, or stains. While veneers are more expensive than bonding, they are more permanent and often look more natural.

ClearCorrect

The days of metal braces and rubber bands are gone. We now offer ClearCorrect, a clear plastic orthodontic treatment that can help your teeth slowly but surely move to the right positions. If you have crooked teeth, these can get your smile back in shape in as little as 12 months. Plus, by using clear plastic, ClearCorrect is almost invisible. You can also take out the aligners whenever you need to clean your teeth or eat.

Smile Makeover

Even if you have several problems making your smile look bad, we can help. A total smile makeover is just what you think: a plan to correct all of the trouble spots. First, you will have an exam and consultation with one of our dentists to see what the problems are. Together, you will create a treatment plan that includes all the procedures necessary to get your teeth looking the way you want. We will create a wax model of your teeth to show how the changes will look, and use SNAP Cosmetic Simulation Software for a digital prediction of your new smile.
