Bonding is often used to enhance the aesthetics of a patient’s smile. Bonding is less expensive than porcelain veneers and can still give a nice result. Tooth colored filling is added to the teeth to fill in spaces or fix contours.
There are multiple ways to whiten teeth. We offer Crest Whitestrips and take home custom tray bleaching. Whitestrips work best on young patients with straight teeth that are already fairly white. Take home bleach gives, by far, the best results. Teeth can change multiple shades with take-home whitening. The trays are loaded with a bleach material and worn at night or for a few hours during the day. This usually takes 10 days–2 weeks. We do not do in-office whitening, as the risk of tooth sensitivity is just too high.
