Summer is one of the busiest times of year for events and functions, whether you’re a stay-at-home parent, a retiree, or a working professional.

What about your smile’s effect on your impression? Have you considered how cosmetic dental work can literally transform your appearance?
Make a better impression by improving your smile. You might be surprised when someone comes up to you and asks you what you’ve done to look younger!

With multiple dentists and early, late, and weekend hours, we can usually get you in quickly.
Here are a few ways you may be able to accomplish your updated look.
If You Have A Week Or Two
If time’s running short and you need to make a change fast, we have solutions. Many patients find that all they need for a “quick fix” is teeth whitening. We’ll simply do an exam and create custom trays that fit you to a T. You’ll use the prescription-strength gel when it pleases you – in the shower in the morning or when you’re watching a favorite TV show before bed. It just takes about 15-45 minutes a day to see quick results. Most people notice a much brighter smile in less than a week!
If you’re looking for a more comprehensive treatment or one that complements your newly whitened smile, you may want to explore dental bonding. Also known as cosmetic bonding, this treatment rarely takes more than one office visit. And it’s fairly affordable. Using the same resin as tooth-colored fillings, you can fix:
- Gaps between teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth that are too short
- Surface flaws like pits
- Cracks and chips
You can expect a few years out of your bonding treatment. Some patients use it to test out their newly improved smile while saving for veneers. Others are perfectly content with the natural-looking results they get. Talk to your dentist to find out if this particular type of cosmetic dental work is right for you.
If You Have A Few Weeks
If you need a miracle smile makeover in a few weeks, it may be possible. Dental veneers are a kind of cosmetic “catch-all” that can cover all the same things bonding can, but in a long-lasting way. In fact, some of our patients have even used them as an alternative to orthodontics.
First, you’ll come in for your consultation. If we see you’re a good candidate, we’ll take some measurements and do light prep work to your teeth so the veneers fit perfectly. Once we apply the veneers, the transformation is instant! This is the secret behind many Hollywood smiles, and yours will look no less flawless.
With our dentists’ artistic eyes, years of experience, and use of only high-quality materials, you can expect a good decade or two – or more – out of your veneers. We can use beautiful crowns if your flaws or damage is more extensive.
If your gums, not your teeth, are the problem, see if our revolutionary pinhole technique is for you. We can repair gum recession in one easy appointment without all the downsides of traditional gum surgery. Recovery time is minimal, so your smile will be back to normal (or better!) in as little time as possible.
