What is cosmetic dentistry?
The term cosmetic dentistry refers to all procedures used to improve your smile. This includes porcelain veneers, bridges and crowns, teeth whitening, bonding and white fillings.

How do I know if cosmetic dentistry is right for me?
First, take a look at your smile. If you don’t like what you see (discoloration, crooked or missing teeth, etc.), then we recommend you schedule a consultation. We can discuss your options so you can make an informed decision about cosmetic dentistry and whether it is something you want to pursue.

Can I have my old silver fillings replaced even if they aren’t falling out?
It is definitely more appealing to see white when you smile rather than the silver fillings so many people have. Your silver fillings usually last 5 to 8 years and will eventually need to be replaced. If your primary concern is the color and the filling is in good shape, there are other options such as white fillings or porcelain inlays.

I have a cavity that needs filling. Is there an alternative to the silver fillings?
White fillings are quickly replacing the old silver fillings that are part mercury. Although both kinds of fillings serve the same purpose, white fillings are more cosmetically appealing.

The only thing wrong with my smile is my yellow teeth. What can I do?
We offer several different teeth whitening options that can be done in our office or in the privacy of your own home. To determine which option is best suited for your needs, we recommend you contact our office to schedule an initial consultation.

What is the difference between a crown and a bridge?
Both crowns and bridges are referred to as restorative dentistry. They are used to return your teeth to their desired look and stability. A crown is used when a single tooth is damaged. A bridge is used when more than one tooth is missing. Crowns and bridges both add stability to the surrounding teeth and give your smile a more beautiful look.

Can porcelain veneers cover up the gaps in my smile?
Definitely. Porcelain veneers are specifically designed to cover gaps, chips, permanent stains, misshapen teeth and washed out fillings. The thin porcelain veneers are instant orthodontics and will give you the beautiful smile you desire.
