Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance of the teeth. Although it’s technically a desired service, cosmetic work can include restorative benefits. We offer a comprehensive list of cosmetic and restorative services that are performed by our experienced and professional staff. We will help you explore the benefits of restoration, which include both aesthetic and functional support.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dental fillings are available in porcelain or composite materials that closely match your tooth color as opposed to the visible, dark older fillings. We can replace these outdated fillings easily with a more natural looking alternative, all while maintaining the functional property of the filling.

ImplantsH

Dental implants are a long-term method of replacing lost teeth for cosmetic and functional reasons. The implant connects to the bone of the jaw, giving a natural, blended look without any bridges or removal. It functions and acts as a normal tooth thereafter.

Bonding

Bonding is used primarily for chipped or broken teeth, and to cover discoloration or decay. A composite material is applied, sculpted, contoured and hardened with a high-intensity light, creating a quality restoration that blends with the existing structure of your teeth.

Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and Onlays, or indirect fillings, are also part of the cosmetic restoration. These are a long lasting way to fill teeth suffering from decay or structural damage. As opposed to being molded to the teeth like traditional fillings, inlays and onlays are bonded into place.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are composite or porcelain laminates that are bonded to the tooth to repair any chips, gaps, and cracks of the tooth. Veneers can also change the shape and color of the teeth. These can be done individually case by case, or are sometimes included in reconstructive purposes where the whole mouth is considered to reach cosmetic satisfaction.

Porcelain Bridges

Bridgework is especially useful when multiple teeth are being replaced. Although porcelain is highly desirable for aesthetic reasons, it is also highly functional, too. Porcelain can be shaped to replicate original teeth and provide a comfortable, more permanent option than dentures, and are durable for long-term use.

We provide an excellent whitening system that will provide the most predictable, yet safe and effective result. Ask about our new patient free whitening special.
