Looking Good at Any Age

These days, ordinary people are cosmetically enhancing their appeal, stripping years from bodies, faces, and smiles. And dentistry can go a long way in helping you look as young as you feel! Cosmetic vs. Restorative Dentistry What's the difference? Both have to do with individual wants and needs. The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to get your smile as dazzling as possible. It might include procedures like tooth whitening, orthodontics, veneers or gum surgery. Restorative dentistry, on the other hand, seeks to rebuild broken or missing teeth.

Learning More About Cracked Teeth

Every tooth fracture's an emergency. Unfortunately, some are too tiny to be spotted by even a trained eye. We call it Cracked Tooth Syndrome. A patient shows up with a "mouthful of pain."

Most cracks tend to be superficial, involving only part of the crown and a bit of the root structure. With a fast and effective procedure, direct bonding, the small fracture can be prevented from growing larger—and more unattractive. Best of all, 90% of all cracks require uncomplicated treatment: tooth-colored fillings, porcelain laminated veneers, or crowns. But that one crack in 10 that's deep or complex demands a more [...]

Have you ever smiled in the mirror…

And wondered, what if... What if your teeth were less prominent, or just a bit more even, or maybe that missing chip was back in its place? Cosmetic dentistry isn't "just for movie stars" or "just for women." Typically it's a very conservative treatment that returns huge dividends in personal self-confidence. Today we have new materials and techniques that can put a super smile within everyone's reach.

For teeth that are intact but seem to lack that youthful sparkle, we have a variety of procedures that are simple, safe, and effective. You may want [...]

Porcelain Veneers—A Beautiful Alternative

What are porcelain veneers? Porcelain veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic material bonded to the front of teeth. They require little or no anesthesia, and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. They can mask discolorations, brighten teeth, and improve a smile. Highly resistant to permanent staining from coffee, tea, or even cigarette smoking, the wafer-thin porcelain veneers can achieve a tenacious bond to the tooth, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing naturalness that is unsurpassed by other restorative options. Why would you recommend a porcelain veneer? Porcelain veneers are an excellent alternative to crowns in many situations. They provide a much more conservative approach to changing a tooth's color, size, or shape. Porcelain veneers [...]
