Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain designed to fit over and cover up the fronts of your teeth, covering up a wide variety of imperfections.
With veneers, you can cover up stained teeth, minor chips and damage, gaps in your smile, misshapen and uneven teeth, and much more. Veneers last up to 10-15 years or longer with proper care, and are completely stain-resistant.
Invisalign uses a series of clear plastic “aligners” to correct the position of your teeth without the use of braces, providing you with a straighter smile.
The benefits of this include a healthier bite as well as a more attractive smile. Invisalign is also faster than braces. It’s also removable, so you can continue to eat your favorite foods without dietary restrictions, and it’s easier to brush and floss. Most importantly, though, Invisalign is invisible when worn and does not affect your speech or appearance, unlike braces.
Partial dentures consist of a few false teeth connected to a plastic-and-metal framework. They attach to your remaining healthy teeth. Full dentures require the extraction of all remaining teeth, and replace your entire smile.
Dentures are an affordable and fast way to replace missing teeth and get your smile and bite back. You can speak clearly, eat your favorite foods, and smile with confidence after you get your new dentures.
Dental implants use a surgical implant and an “implant restoration” like a dental crown to permanently replace a missing tooth.
Dental implants last 30+ years, support the strength of your jaw, and look and feel completely natural. They also do not require any special care beyond regular brushing and flossing.
Teeth whitening uses peroxide to “bleach” the teeth and remove surface stains, restoring your appearance.
With teeth whitening, you’ll feel more proud of your smile, and you’ll also look younger. Teeth whitening also provides fast results, is non-invasive, and is very affordable, so you can restore your smile on any budget.
In this treatment, dental resin is applied directly to a tooth and is sculpted and hardened to improve its appearance and shape, covering up a wide variety of cosmetic imperfections.
Dental bonding is durable, can be done in one appointment, and is non-invasive, requiring no drilling of the tooth. It’s also more affordable than alternative treatments like veneers.
