Our cosmetic dental treatments enhance the natural smile and help increase patients’ confidence in their oral health:
This alternative to traditional metal braces uses clear trays to gently realign teeth. SureSmile is a great treatment for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Because the SureSmile aligners are clear, they are discreet. Patients can also remove their aligners to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
Dental veneers are ultra-thin shells that we place on the front of the tooth enamel. Veneers can treat gaps between teeth, crooked teeth, and discolored teeth. They offer longer-lasting treatment than dental bonding, a similar cosmetic alternative.
Tooth bonding is a quicker alternative to veneers for patients with smaller cosmetic imperfections. The bonding material is malleable and can cover chips, cracks, and breaks in the tooth enamel. We can also cover single discolored or crooked teeth with bonding material.
KöR teeth whitening uses in-office and take-home treatments to effectively brighten teeth. Although KöR uses a series of treatments over several months, many patients receive better results with more extensive treatment. Unlike store-bought solutions, many professional whitening treatments can deliver brighter teeth with more effective active ingredients.
Cosmetic Dental FAQs
Learn more about your cosmetic dental options with answers to these frequently asked questions:
Can I whiten bonded teeth or porcelain veneers?
No, you cannot use teeth whitening treatments to whiten veneers or bonded teeth. Veneers and dental bonding treatment can address tooth stains and discoloration. However, if you have old veneers or bonding treatment, we can replace them with a new cosmetic treatment.
How do dental veneers compare to tooth bonding treatment?
Porcelain veneers last longer than bonding treatment with tooth-colored shells that fully cover the front of the enamel. Dental bonding treatment offers a quick alternative to veneers that can address small areas of tooth damage or discoloration. Although bonding treats a smaller area of the smile, it is a more economical option for patients.
Is SureSmile the same as Invisalign?
Although both SureSmile and Invisalign use clear aligners to straighten teeth, they offer slight differences. We recommend SureSmile aligners for patients who have more complex orthodontic needs but do not want to wear metal braces.
Invisalign can straighten crooked or misaligned teeth. However, SureSmile addresses problems like overbites, overbites, and crossbites. SureSmile aligners have added customizations for rubber bands and other attachments.
How long is Invisalign treatment?
Every patient is different, so their treatment time will vary based on their specific needs. However, patients can generally complete Invisalign treatment within a year to 18 months. It can take longer for patients to complete Invisalign if they have more moderate orthodontic problems.
When will I see results from the KöR teeth whitening treatment?
Patients will begin to see a brighter smile several weeks after they begin treatment. In addition, results can last for many months and even years. KöR is an effective option for patients because it uses custom trays that create a tight seal around teeth. This whitening option also uses a high concentration of active ingredients like hydrogen peroxide.
