How can porcelain veneers help my smile?

Porcelain veneers improve your smile by correcting a multitude of cosmetic concerns including: gaps in teeth; chips and broken teeth; dull or yellowing teeth that cannot be whitened with traditional means; “gummy smile” (showing too much gum when one smiles); and crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers broaden, straighten, whiten and beautify most any smile. This procedure can be done in as little as two clinical visits with your family dentist. Many of our patients feel like this was the best improvement that could have been done for their overall confidence.

How can I safely whiten my teeth?

There are a number of procedures available to help whiten your smile, from over-the-counter, at-home whitening products to in-office supervised treatments. Your dentist evaluates the potential for whitening your teeth based on their current color and the causes of any discoloration. Once you decide on the most appropriate method, you will spend anywhere from two to four weeks undergoing a series of simple whitening treatments.
