A brighter, whiter, more vibrant smile – who wouldn’t want that?

Most of us have some basic commonalities such as getting older (50 is the new 20 right?!), eating good food (I’ll leave it up to you to decide the definition of “good”), and enjoying a nice, hot cup of coffee or tea to wake us up and get us going every morning. Unfortunately, age, food, dark beverages, and products like tobacco can stain your teeth, leaving you with an embarrassing, yellow smile. Likely, there are options that can help you achieve a beautiful smile again in no time!


Veneers are extremely thin, semi­translucent shells of porcelain (or composite resin) that are bonded to the front of your teeth. A small amount of tooth surface is removed in order to make room to bond the veneer. Veneers can be used to fill spaces between teeth, or to cover teeth that are crooked, poorly shaped, or heavily stained. Veneers are perfect for subtle changes to your smile.


Bonding is used for minor cosmetic purposes in order to improve the appearance of discolored, cracked, or chipped teeth. It can also be used to close small spaces between teeth. However, bonding is not suitable for major cosmetic changes because it is less durable than veneers and crowns.

During the bonding process, a tooth-colored resin is applied to the teeth using adhesives, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened using a high intensity curing light, and lastly polished to ensure a beautiful smile.

Dental CrownDental Crown

Crowns are synthetic, permanent coverings that are placed on top of a tooth that is cracked, damaged, or decayed. Crowns restore a tooth’s appearance and function after restorative procedures like implants or root canals. Although crowns are typically made of porcelain to provide the most natural appearance, they can also be made out of gold, acrylic resin, or a mixture of various materials.The treatment plan involves:

  1. Numbing the tooth
  2. Reducing the size of the tooth to remove decay and accommodate a crown
  3. Making an impression to create a custom-made crown
  4. Applying a temporary crown made of acrylic resin until the permanent crown has been made
  5. Applying the permanent crown and cementing it into place

The entire process of receiving a crown takes about three visits over a 2-3 week period.

With proper dental hygiene and regular checkups, your crowns can last a lifetime.
