The Art of Dentistry

Aesthetic dentistry is to neuromuscular dentistry as icing is to cake. Paired with a perfect jaw alignment, aesthetic dentistry can renew your outlook, fill you with confidence and restore you physically and mentally. Unlike conventional dentists, aesthetic dentists create smiles with modern materials that last years to come.

  • Transform dulled, stained teeth to bright eye-catching smiles.
  • Replace outdated harmful mercury fillings that can actually cause damage.
  • Reshape teeth that are crooked, gapped, uneven or overlapping with natural looking veneers.

What Will My New Smile Look Like?

Every smile is as unique as the person who wears it. We take great care in designing a smile that suits the individual patient. A series of careful facial measurements will help us to create a smile that is in proportion to your bone structure, age and gender.

Thanks to advances in computer technology, we are also able to show you an image of your new smile before you even begin the procedure. Through digital imaging software we can manipulate a digital photograph of your existing smile and show you your redesigned smile. This is an excellent way to share your excitement with spouses and family members.

What Technologies Do You Use In Aesthetic Dentistry?

Modern technology is an integral part of aesthetic dentistry. The use of intra-oral cameras, for example, allows us to see your teeth magnified on a high resolution monitor, allowing for better diagnosis and more conservative treatment. Our digital imaging technology allows us to show you your new smile before you even start treatment. And our computers in each treatment room allow us immediate access to your files and health history, making sure your treatment is followed closely.

What Can Be Done If I Have Stained or Discolored Teeth?

Many people achieve a whiter, brighter smile with our simple whitening procedure. It is safe quick and inexpensive. You can whiten only your upper or lower teeth, or your entire smile. Patients can gradually lift stains through a convenient at-home whitening process, using thin trays and gentle whitening gel.

What Do You Use To Fill Cavities?

The days of silver mercury fillings are now nearly obsolete. Our practice uses no silver mercury and will be happy to assist you in replacing older, failing amalgam restorations. Today's porcelain inlays and composite resins create fillings that are not only natural looking but also stronger than materials of the past.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility. When bonded to the teeth, the ultra thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea or cigarette stains. For strength and appearance their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.

How can You Replace My Missing Teeth?

Many options are available, including bridges, implants or even precision fit natural looking partial and full dentures. There is no reason to live with missing teeth. Replacing missing teeth can add self-confidence and also allows other teeth to last longer by reducing the stress placed on the remaining natural teeth.
