Years ago, the only way to bleach teeth was in the dental office. Today, when it comes to a whiter, brighter smile, you have a variety of options. You can use over-the-counter (OTC) whitening toothpastes and bleaching systems. However, they may whiten your teeth, but it will take much longer that a professional system.

Bonding is a term that is usually used to describe repairing imperfections on front teeth. Minor chips on single teeth and gaps between the teeth are the most common reasons bonding is used (larger fractures and misaligned teeth are usually corrected with porcelain veneers). The material applied is similar to what is used for white (composite) fillings. The bonding material is matched to the shade of your teeth and we shape this material to the desired results. Most of the time this is completed in one visit, many times without the need for anesthesia

Dental veneers are thin, custom-designed restorations made of tooth-like ceramic material that, when applied over the surface of a tooth, can cover worn tooth enamel, uneven tooth alignment, or even spacing, chips or cracks
(See our Before and After page).
Dental veneers fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry because they create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned, shapely teeth. The ceramic quality of today’s veneers provides a more natural look than what has been available in the past. Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, dental veneers may solve most or even all of your cosmetic dental issues.

Dental implants are artificial replacements to compensate for tooth loss. Many people are self conscious if they have lost teeth due to injury or disease. They are sometimes unable to speak or smile comfortably. Also if their bite is irregular it can lead to other complications such as malnutrition. Tooth loss might be due to trauma of the mouth, excessive wear and tear, congenital defects or gum disease.

Dental bridges like implants and partials are used to replace missing teeth. Missing teeth can change the appearance of your smile and can also affect your bite. Missing teeth can change your bite completely; shift your teeth, cause TMJ symptoms and speech impediments.
As time goes on this wear and tear on your teeth can adversely affect your health. Many types of bridges are available so your dentist can create a new smile for you.
Usually, your dentist must reshape your teeth surrounding a missing tooth in order to place a bridge. Afterwards a crown is placed on the shaped teeth and attached to an artificial tooth. A resin-bonded bridge is often used to replace front teeth if the gums and surrounding teeth are healthy and do not have too many fillings. This type of bridge requires less preparation of adjacent teeth

the loss of your teeth can affect your self esteem, how you chew food and your overall health in general. In order to replace missing teeth dentures are usually used. A partial or complete denture can be used to replace missing teeth depending on the extent of the problem.
There are also many types of dentures that are used now to completely transform a person’s smile. For example, partial dentures can prevent your existing healthy teeth from shifting following tooth loss.
Dentures are usually fabricated from acrylic resins. There are many advancements in modern cosmetic dentistry and a wide variety of materials available for dentures, so your dentist may give you some options.
