Cosmetic Dentistry

Bleaching- We will evaluate your teeth for bleaching if you would like them to be lighter.  If you are a good candidate, we often provide a custom home-bleaching system. We also offer the professional strength Crest White Stripsï² certain cases. Please consult our Dental Hygienist or Dr. Alsobrook about the best method for bleaching in your individual case.

Bonding- Many minor cosmetic problems can be corrected by bonding procedures. These procedures often require no anesthesia.

Veneers- Extensive modification of the appearance of several front teeth can be accomplished by the bonding of thin porcelain veneers to the front surfaces of the teeth. Veneers are made of a very thin porcelain that is then bonded to the front surface of the existing teeth. Very little of the original tooth structure is removed prior to bonding the veneers in place. Usually 6 to 8 veneers will be done at one time to ensure a good match of shape, size and color. In some cases where all the front teeth do not need restoring, veneers can also be made using a special white filling material to cover the front surface of the tooth.
