Veneers and Whitening
Dental veneers are a highly effective and minimally invasive solution for people with tooth gaps, chips, stains or discoloration. Sometimes called ‘porcelain veneers’, they are very thin, custom made shells of tooth-colored material that are designed to fit perfectly over the front of your tooth or teeth. These shells are permanently bonded to the front of the teeth changing the tooth’s color, shape, size, or length. One of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available, veneers enhance and improve the shape of your teeth, create an overall whiter and brighter smile, and can mask a host of dental imperfections to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Everybody loves a bright white smile, and there are a variety of products and procedures available to help you improve the look of yours. Regular dental cleanings can improve the brightness of your smile. Beyond regular cleanings and good home care, we offer prescription strength Opal Go, at home bleaching with custom trays, and in office bleaching with Opalescence by Ultradent.
At home tray whitening systems initially require two dental appointments. The first step is to make an impression of your teeth. We use this mold of your teeth to create custom whitening trays that you can wear during the day or night (depending upon what’s recommended for you). At the second appointment we give you the trays and syringes of bleach material that you place into the trays and wear daily. These trays are long lasting and can be used for years to come for a whitening boost when needed. We like to evaluate you in office after the first two weeks of bleaching to track your progress and offer any tips or advice on bleaching.
