Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
I'm interested in some cosmetic dentistry but I'm afraid I won't like the result. How can I tell what I'll look like with a new smile?
What a great question! Coincidentally, we have an imaging system that works with our 3 digital and 4 intraoral cameras. If you are curious what a new smile would look like, just let us take a picture when you are in. After we work our magic, we can either send you a before/after picture in the mail or via an e-mail attachment.
How can I have whiter teeth?
Your mouth is different from everyone else's, but generally, whitening your teeth at home with our lab-fabricated custom-made whitening trays or prescription strength whitening strips is effective. You probably have several friends who have done this, so ask around! We also use a new procedure we have termed Extreme Whitening. Another option is through the placement of porcelain veneers. These can also reshape teeth that are misaligned or abnormal in size. If you have specific questions on pricing, technique or feasibility for yourself, let us know. We would be happy to schedule a no-cost cosmetic consultation, which would include some imaging to show you what is possible.
I want my teeth to look straighter but I don't want to wear braces. What can I do?
As stated before, porcelain veneers are ideal for this. These can be used for "instant braces". In about 3 weeks, not only can front teeth appear to be straight, but also designed any color you want!
