With porcelain veneers, we can fix multiple aesthetic flaws within the smile using just one simple procedure. It involves placing thin ceramic shells over the front of the teeth that change their shape, size, color, and spacing to whatever a patient wants. They are always custom-made, and they can be used to quickly cover noticeable stains, chips, cracks, and gaps to create that perfect look we see on TV and in movies so often.
While dental crowns are primarily used to repair severely damaged teeth, we can also use them to improve the appearance of misshapen, undersized, and worn down teeth that might not look their best. We can place a perfectly shaped porcelain crown over them that recreates the appearance and strength of real enamel down to the finest detail. With this type of crown, only you and Dr. Perez will be able to tell which tooth/teeth aren’t your own!
If you don’t have a lot of time, then cosmetic bonding is probably the ideal treatment for you. In as little as an hour, Dr. Perez can use it to eliminate a small chip, stain, or gap. He simply applies a composite resin to a tooth and literally sculpts it to make the imperfection disappear behind flawless enamel. Once he has polished and hardened the resin, that’s it! The results are very natural-looking and can be trusted to last for about 10 years.
Do you see more of your gum line than your teeth whenever you smile? This could be because of excess gum tissue that is making your teeth look too short or stubby by comparison. Fortunately, Dr. Perez can use a soft tissue laser to precisely remove unneeded gums and help the teeth instantly appear longer, creating a more balanced smile. This procedure only takes one appointment, and the laser is so gentle that our patients don’t even need local anesthetic to remain completely comfortable.
If your smile seems a little dull or yellow in color, professional teeth whitening with Zoom! can make a world of difference. We combine high-strength whitening gel with a state-of-the-art light to penetrate even the most stubborn dental stains. The result? A refreshed smile that’s multiple shades brighter after just one appointment. Touch-up kits are also available to take home so that you can maintain the improvements for years to come.
