Professional Teeth Whitening
If you are looking to brighten your smile and increase your confidence with professional teeth whitening, our team will make custom take-home trays for you. You may have noticed staining on your teeth which is most commonly caused by:
- Staining foods
Our custom take-home whitening trays are a great option, and it usually takes only a few weeks to see the desired results. We will provide directions for how and when to use the trays. Most patients wear them overnight, which helps the whitening gel penetrate the teeth for a longer period. This allows you to see results as quickly as possible.
A benefit of getting custom-made trays is the ability to get touch up whitening gel at your preventive care appointments. We recommend keeping the trays and getting one tube of gel every six months or yearly. By keeping up with whitening maintenance your smile will continue to stay bright.
Crowns, Bridges, and Veneers
Getting crowns and bridges placed offers many oral health benefits. An area of this treatment that’s often overlooked is the cosmetic improvements for which they can be used. Crowns and bridges can enhance your smile cosmetically if you have:
- Worn down teeth
- A rotated or misaligned tooth
- Large gaps between your teeth
- Misshapen teeth
If your teeth would not benefit from a crown other than cosmetically, a veneer is a great option to gain the cosmetic improvements without removing as much tooth structure. A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is permanently bonded to the front surface of your tooth and allows us to completely change its shape and cosmetic appearance. Veneers can also be used when you have permanent staining on your teeth that cannot be removed with whitening.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Are you looking to replace old amalgam fillings or have something about the shape of your teeth you don’t like? Tooth-colored fillings are a great option that can be used for more than filling cavities.
With today’s composite material, Dr. Jarrett can reshape and straighten your teeth without having to do major treatment. Often, the smallest adjustment to the shape of your teeth can have a dramatic impact on your entire smile.
Full Mouth Cosmetic Evaluation
If you are looking to have a significant amount of cosmetic treatment completed, our office can provide you with a full mouth cosmetic evaluation. Dr. Jarrett and her team are happy to do an evaluation and discuss your desires and goals for a more attractive smile. Our team will take pictures and models of your mouth to send to the lab so Dr. Jarrett can work with their cosmetic team on your treatment.
If orthodontics or implants will be used, Dr. Jarrett will coordinate a treatment plan and care with specialists to help facilitate communication so your treatment can be completed smoothly.
