Teeth whitening is a popular service that can improve the appearance of discolored or stained teeth. While you can find any number of whitening products at your local grocery store or pharmacy, it takes a professional whitening system to achieve truly stunning results. At Canatella Dental, we're happy to talk about your teeth whitening options so you can finally smile with added confidence.
Could you benefit from orthodontic treatment -- but avoid it because you don’t want to wear braces for a year or more? If so, you may be a wonderful candidate for Invisalign. This orthodontic system uses clear plastic aligners to gradually reposition the teeth. They are practically invisible, allowing you to speak and smile with full confidence. What’s more, Invisalign is removable -- so you can continue to eat what you like and brush and floss just like you’re used to. Many people are eligible candidates for Invisalign!
Patients who want a whiter and straighter looking smile should consider porcelain veneers. This cosmetic service uses a thin piece of porcelain to improve the appearance of stained, cracked, chipped, or misaligned teeth. A full porcelain veneer procedure typically takes just two to three appointments to complete but provides beautiful, long-lasting results. If you want a smile that looks both whiter and straighter, let Dr. Canatella talk with you about the benefits of this excellent service.
Cosmetic Tooth Bonding
Are minor flaws taking away from your smile in a major way? Cosmetic bonding is a noninvasive treatment that allows your dentist to artistically reshape the appearance of chipped, uneven, stained, or gapped teeth. During this procedure, a biocompatible resin is applied to the affected tooth/teeth and then sculpted into an attractive form. The resin can then be dried in a matter of minutes under a special UV light. Sometimes anesthesia or numbing is necessary with this treatment, and a tooth repaired with cosmetic bonding can remain intact for years with proper maintenance.
Gum Contouring and Reshaping
When enhancing your smile with cosmetic dentistry, sometimes it is not the teeth that need to be repaired -- but the gums. In cases when there is too much periodontal (gum) tissue covering up the enamel or if the gum line is uneven due to disease, we may recommend that you undergo gum contouring and/or reshaping. It’s a simple procedure: using the precision of laser dentistry, your cosmetic dentist can remove and re-contour imperfect periodontal tissue more comfortably and efficiently than ever before!
