Teeth whitening uses powerful, peroxide-based compounds to “bleach” away external tooth stains, and restore the natural, white enamel of your teeth. This can be used to reverse yellowing caused by aging, stains and discoloration caused by tobacco use, and stains caused by drinking coffee, tea, and wine. We offer both in-office teeth whitening and take-home options, so you can choose whether you’d prefer to be treated in our office, or at home on your own schedule.
In-office whitening is typically slightly more expensive, but allows you to whiten your teeth very quickly. In contrast, take-home whitening is usually cheaper, but requires you to treat yourself over a period of several days or weeks. The end result will be the same, regardless of the method you choose.
Veneers are small, extremely-thin dental prostheses. They are applied to the front of your teeth to cover up imperfections. Veneers are usually used to treat serious tooth stains, chipped or slightly-damaged teeth, and teeth that are misshapen, or slightly crooked. They’re typically made from durable, dental-grade porcelain, but may also be made from dental resin, in some cases. Unlike dental crowns, veneers are only meant to treat healthy teeth that have minor damage. If your tooth is severely damaged, a crown or another alternative treatment may be recommended, instead of a veneer.
Dental bonding is a great way to restore your smile with minimally-invasive treatment. It can be used to help treat teeth that are misshapen, discolored, chipped or gapped. The process is simple, Dr. Charles Lau applies a special, tooth-colored resin to your tooth. The resin is molded into the proper shape and hardened using a special ultraviolet light. Shaping and contouring may also be used to remove small amounts of enamel from the nearby teeth to improve the appearance of your whole smile. This treatment only takes a single appointment, making it great if you want to restore your smile quickly.
