Some cosmetic treatments are designed to address specific problems, but with porcelain veneers, you can correct many kinds of flaws at once. A thin porcelain shell is attached to the tooth in order to hide chips, cracks, misshapen teeth, discoloration, and other issues. Since porcelain is very durable and stain-resistant, you can expect your new smile to last for many years. In some cases, you may even be eligible for Lumineers; these are like veneers except much thinner, which means little to no alterations to your teeth will be required to make room
Crowns are traditionally used as a means of tooth repair, but they can be used for purely cosmetic reasons as well. In either case, the restorations we offer are made from ceramic. Unlike gold or metal amalgams, ceramic materials can easily be shaded so that they match the color of your natural teeth. Most people can’t tell the difference between a well-made crown and a real tooth, so there’s no need to worry about getting the wrong kind of attention when you smile!
Like veneers, cosmetic bonding can be used to address multiple aesthetic issues such as cracks, stains, and gaps. However, while veneers typically require at least two appointments, cosmetic bonding can be completed in as little as one office visit. During the procedure, we’ll apply a composite resin (a material often used in fillings) directly to the enamel, sculpting and coloring it so that it gets rid of the offending imperfection. The results can last for several years when given proper dental care.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If you haven’t been getting the results you want with the whitening products you’ve found at the store, it may be time to consider a professional approach. Dr. McNew offers Lumibrite™ Take-Home Whitening as well as Opalescence On-the-Go; both systems combine custom-fitted trays with a potent bleaching gel. You’ll fill the trays and wear them for a set amount of time each day, allowing the ingredients in the gel to penetrate the enamel and break up the stain-causing particles.
In-Office Teeth Whitening
As effective as take-home whitening kits can be, you’ll normally have to wait a couple of weeks to start seeing dramatic results. If you want to enjoy a brighter smile right away, Dr. McNew can perform in-office whitening. One technique is called Glo Whitening. The non-sensitive gel used during the procedure is activated by an LED light, which speeds up the process considerably. While the results will vary depending on your situation, some patients end up with a smile that’s 12 shades whiter –all in just an hour!
iTero® Smile Simulator
You’ll naturally want to have a clear idea of what your smile will look like after your cosmetic treatment, which is why we’ll give you a preview with the iTero® Smile Simulator. Digital impressions of your teeth and mouth are taken in order to create an accurate, 3D image that we can manipulate. This technology is often used alongside Invisalign® in order to simulate the outcome of an orthodontic treatment. With it, we can make sure you’re comfortable with your results before you commit to a treatment!
