Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin shells, typically made of porcelain or resin, that are bonded to the front of your teeth to enhance the beauty of your smile. Dr. Johnson may recommend dental veneers to correct several types of smile imperfections. Porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for enhancing your smile because the color and translucence of porcelain is a great match for the natural appearance of tooth enamel. Porcelain is stain resistant as well, so your smile will stay bright for years to come. Resin veneers can also be matched to your natural tooth color. With dental veneers, you can achieve a beautiful, natural-looking smile that you will love to show off.

Our dentist may recommend dental veneers if you would like to improve the appearance of your smile. Custom-made veneers can be used for just one tooth or for your entire smile. We may suggest veneers to:

⦁ Close large spaces and gaps between teeth
⦁ Whiten teeth that are severely stained or discolored
⦁ Improve the appearance of irregularly shaped teeth
⦁ Correct slightly crooked teeth
⦁ Restore teeth that are broken, chipped, worn, or fractured
⦁ Bonding

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a simple, effective cosmetic dental treatment that we offer to noticeably enhance your smile in as little as one treatment. Our professional teeth whitening treatments utilize a powerful yet safe whitening gel that is applied to the surface of your teeth. This gel works to lighten the appearance of stains, discoloration, and yellowing on the tooth enamel. Teeth whitening is often available in both in-office and take-home systems. Professional teeth whitening can give you a noticeably whiter smile that will boost your self-esteem and help you smile with pride.

If you have ever wished that your smile were whiter and brighter, teeth whitening might be right for you. Through professional teeth whitening, we can lighten staining and discoloration caused by various factors, such as:

⦁ The natural aging process
⦁ Poor dental hygiene habits
⦁ Consumption of certain drinks and foods, including tea, wine, coffee, and soda
⦁ Smoking and other forms of tobacco use
⦁ Illness
⦁ Certain medications
⦁ Fluorosis
