Cosmetic Dentistry


Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.


Dental veneers are a highly effective and minimally invasive solution for people with tooth gaps, chips, stains or discoloration. Sometimes called ‘porcelain veneers’, they are very thin, custom made shells of tooth-colored material that are designed to fit perfectly over the front of your tooth or teeth. These shells are permanently bonded to the front of the teeth changing the tooth’s color, shape, size, or length. One of the most conservative cosmetic treatments available, veneers enhance and improve the shape of your teeth, create an overall whiter and brighter smile, and can mask a host of dental imperfections to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.


Botulinum toxin (Botox, Xeomin) is a neurotoxin produced by the bacterium Clostriium A. Botox can relax the muscles on areas of the face and neck which cause wrinkles associated with facial expressions or facial pain. Treatment with the botulinum can cause your facial expression lines or wrinkles to be less noticeable or essentially disappear. Areas most frequently treated are a) glabellar area of frown lines, located between the eyes; b) crowns feet (lateral areas of the eyes; c) forehead wrinkles; d) radial lip lines (smoker’s lines), 3) head and neck muscles. Botox is diluted into a very controlled solution, and when injected into the muscles with a very thin needle is almost painless. Patients may feel a slight burning sensation while the solution is being injected. The procedure takes about 20-25 minutes, and the results can last up to three months. With repeated treatments, the results tend to last longer.
