Cosmetic Dentistry: Teeth Whitening, Veneers, and Invisalign
By enhancing your smile, you are truly enhancing every aspect of your life. We witness firsthand the power that cosmetic dentistry has to change lives. A beautiful smile can not only change how you feel about yourself but can also how others perceive you. When you’re afraid to let others see your teeth, you can be perceived as withdrawn and standoffish. But when you’re eager to smile and laugh, confident in the beauty of your teeth, others may see you as warmer and friendlier.

1) Professional In-Office and take home GLO Whitening:
Using our in-office whitening, patients can experience fast, dramatic teeth whitening results-often in as little as an hour. Our revolutionary GLO teeth whitening system is able to whiten teeth by up to five shades in just under an hour. Using a professional-strength hydrogen-peroxide-based whitening gel that is activated upon exposure to a special light, the GLO whitening system can dramatically lighten or entirely remove stains caused by coffee, tea, soda, tobacco, wine, and certain other foods and medications. . It is also important to mention, that regular professional cleanings are important to have whiter teeth, and may be required before any in-office whitening can be completed. The results of your in-office whitening treatment will be long-lasting, especially when paired with an at-home teeth whitening kit that is included in your purchase with 10 take-home applications.
The centerpiece of many smile makeovers, porcelain veneers are among the most transformative treatments in cosmetic dentistry. Custom-crafted to complement the size, shape, color, and texture of surrounding natural teeth, porcelain veneers are ultra-thin porcelain casings affixed to the front surfaces of teeth to conceal cracks, chips, gaps, and discoloration.
- There is a minimum of tooth reduction necessary in most cases.
- The surrounding gum tissue is not invaded.
- Spaces between teeth can be closed without braces or crowns.
- Crooked teeth can be put into proper alignment without braces or crowns.
- Darkened teeth can be made lighter.
- The life expectancy of veneers is much longer than that of resin bonding.
- Porcelain veneers are extremely resistant to staining or fracture and do not discolor over time.
Veneers can be as thin as a contact lens but make a world of difference and are an excellent way of treating stained, crooked teeth without removing too much healthy tooth structure.

This is a cosmetic teeth straightening treatment that uses clear trays called aligners to straighten your teeth and improve your smile. It is a very effective and predictable treatment modality and patients are able to perform their regular care – brushing and flossing easily even during the treatment which gets challenging if they had chosen the conventional metallic braces.
