Whitening


We offer Teeth Whitening to patients who like their teeth, but want them whiter and brighter. Take-home whitening trays are available.

Bonding


Bonding can yield significant results in just one painless office visit. Bonding hides natural flaws by placing a thin plastic coating on the visible surface of the teeth.

A putty-like bonding material is applied to the surface of a treated tooth. The bonding material is then shaped and colored to produce a natural look. The surface is then hardened, smoothed and polished by a high intensity light.

Techniques for tooth-colored restorations have improved drastically in the last 20 years. We now have higher quality materials, improved adhesion and less invasive tooth preparation techniques. These new materials are more cost effective and can be shade-matched and contoured to look like natural teeth.
