A dental veneer is a very thin piece of durable, tooth-shaped porcelain that is bonded onto the front of a tooth. Veneers are often a treatment option for creating a cosmetically beautiful smile when teeth are slightly crooked, misshapen, severely discolored or permanently stained, too large or too small, spaced unevenly, worn, or chipped. Dr. Lopez has helped many patients achieve the smile of their dreams by using this conservative treatment – either alone or in combination with other treatments. He will carefully shape your veneers to provide optimal function, a naturally beautiful appearance, and lasting results.
Metal-Free Dental Crowns
Dental crowns made of metal amalgam last a long time and offer excellent protection for a damaged tooth, but they come at the cost of a completely natural-looking smile. Our Prettau and Emax brand dental crowns are made out of metal-free ceramic materials that can be shaded to match the rest of your smile. With a properly designed and placed crown, it will look like your teeth were never damaged or decayed in the first place.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, we offer both in-office power tooth whitening and take-home whitening kits. Dr. Lopez will recommend the best treatment for your circumstances. Whitening products have evolved over the years, and Dr. Lopez stays up to date with the best options. If sensitivity has been an issue with teeth whitening in the past, discuss this with us. Both he and our hygienist will be happy to go over the latest options with you, including:
- KöR Whitening
- Philips Zoom Take-Home Whitening
- In-Office Opalescence Teeth Whitening
Do your teeth look smaller than they should? It might be because the gums are covering them a bit too much. The gum recontouring process lets us remove unnecessary gum tissue to expose more of the teeth. This will also help the gumline look more even across your mouth. A soft tissue laser will be used for this procedure; the precision it offers will make it easier to create a smile that you will be satisfied with.
Virtual Smile Design
Before you agree to any cosmetic dental procedure, we want you to know what you can expect your teeth to look like after the treatment so that you can set realistic expectations and make the best decision based on your individual needs. With our virtual smile design software, we can show you the simulated results of various procedures. If you need time to think about your choice, you can take the results home and show your potential future smile to friends and loved ones.
