Cosmetic Dentistry

If you have ever felt self-conscious about your smile, or wished you could change something about its appearance, you are not alone. After a visit to Green Dental, you will be amazed at what we can offer to improve your smile’s appearance and in turn, your overall quality of life. Imagine smiling wider, laughing more often and with less reserve, and not fearing having your photograph taken with a toothy grin.

Cosmetic dentistry services offered by Green Dental include composite fillings, porcelain crowns, porcelain fixed bridges, porcelain veneers, and tooth whitening. Due to technological advances and the increased popularity of cosmetic dental treatments, results are more easily achieved and more affordable than ever.

Composite fillings may be used when teeth are chipped, decayed, cracked, broken, or worn. They are also used to close space between two teeth. This procedure can usually be completed in one visit to our office.

Porcelain crowns, or caps, typically require two appointments. Crowns are used to treat broken, fractured, or decayed teeth, and also when fillings are too large or fractured, when the tooth has had a root canal, and for general cosmetic enhancement. Your crown will be made to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth for the best possible appearance.

Porcelain fixed bridges are non-removable appliances that serve a number of purposes. They can fill in the space of missing teeth, maintain facial shape, prevent other teeth from shifting out of position, restore chewing and speaking ability, and restore your smile. Additionally, they can replace a removable partial denture. Two or more visits may be required to get a fixed bridge made and placed for maximum comfort and proper fit.

Porcelain veneers are very thin yet durable pieces of porcelain custom made, shaped, and colored based on your specific case. Veneers improve the appearance of your smile by providing a bright, uniform, beautiful smile. They can cosmetically enhance a variety of issues, such as crooked or misshapen teeth, severely discolored or stained teeth, worn or chipped teeth, too small or too large teeth, and unwanted or uneven spaces between teeth.

Tooth whitening has become extremely popular in recent years. At Green Dental, we offer a home whitening system that can dramatically improve the brightness and whiteness of your smile. You’ll need to visit our office twice for this procedure—once for an evaluation and to have impressions of your teeth made, and a second time to be fitted with the clear plastic trays made from your impressions. The trays are used with a whitening solution you’ll apply to the inside of them, for 30 minutes twice a day or overnight, depending on the level of whiteness you wish to achieve.

Having an even, white, healthy-looking smile is crucial to overall quality of life in so many ways. Green Dental can provide many improvements and get your smile looking its best ever.
