The goal of cosmetic dentistry is to create a positive change in your teeth and smile. The esthetics of your smile are a complement to the overall health and function of your teeth. We have several effective solutions for the slight imperfections in your smile.
Dental bleaching or teeth whitening procedures may brighten up the smile of people with stained, dull or discolored teeth. Your smile creates an immediate, subconscious, visual impact on the people you meet. A brighter smile gives the impression of youth, vitality, radiant health, happiness and warmth. A bright smile is perceived as a healthy and youthful smile! In addition to your comprehensive dental care, Dr. Gordon can whiten your teeth in just one visit, eliminating years of deep dental stains.
The professional teeth whitening system customized by our office for you is considered to be the most effective and safest method. Over the counter teeth whitening systems are somewhat effective as long as they are monitored and directions are closely followed. Over the counter teeth whitening toothpaste can be somewhat effective but may have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth’s enamel and cause sensitivity.
There are numerous reasons for tooth discoloration, Dr. Gordon will evaluate your teeth and help you decide which treatment option is best. Call our office today and take the first steps toward a dazzling smile.
Your smile matters! Studies have proven the influential role of our smile on our relationships and self-esteem. A smile makeover can change the way a person looks and feels and provide a boost in self confidence. Smiling tells people you are open and friendly and makes you more approachable. Some studies even say that a great smile can improve your social experiences, release endorphins and even improve your immune system. Being ashamed or embarrassed to smile can have the opposite effect. Fortunately, we have a range of options to help anyone achieve their smile goals!
Sometimes it takes more than one or two individual treatments to fully transform your smile. A smile makeover is a comprehensive plan to restore severely damaged or imperfect teeth. Often times, Dr. Gordon can create a smile makeover with dental whitening, porcelain veneers and dental bonding resulting in a beautiful smile.
In some cases a patient may require additional treatment to reach their desired smile. Simply click here to learn more about our Restorative Dentistry options.
Porcelain Veneers or Partial Crowns
Porcelain veneers affix to the front of your tooth using a special thin laminate designed to recreate a natural look. Porcelain veneers are often the treatment of choice for minor position alterations or to change the tooth shape, size and color. After completing a smile analysis, Dr. Gordon will help you determine the best treatment options and dental services for your situation. It’s important to spend time discussing your concerns and what you want corrected for a successful result.
Your porcelain veneers will be individually sculpted for your specific treatment needs. The benefit of veneers is your natural tooth remains largely intact to fit the veneer. When necessary a partial crown will be recommended as a better treatment option. A portion of the original tooth’s enamel is removed for both veneers and partial crowns, therefore this is not considered reversible treatment. You can easily maintain your veneers by caring for them the same way you do your natural teeth with routine flossing and brushing with non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste.
