If you have crooked teeth, gaps, chips, missing teeth, or a gummy smile that you don’t love, contact us today to request an evaluation.
A NEW, BRIGHT SMILE AWAITS.
We offer the Opalescence Boost in-office whitening system. This is a powerful cosmetic treatment that gives great results fast. It’s chemically activated and uses potassium nitrate and fluoride to combat sensitivity, so there’s no need for hot, uncomfortable LED lights. You’ll notice a difference within just one appointment, and you can look forward to a brand new smile with just two to three 20-minute treatments.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
A DURABLE SMILE SOLUTION
Porcelain veneers are a strong, durable solution to a range of cosmetic dental concerns, including crooked, chipped, discolored, or misshapen smiles as well as spacing. Veneers can transform your smile, enhance your appearance, and boost your confidence. Porcelain veneers are designed to last and are also stain-resistant, so with proper home care, you can enjoy a bright, white smile for years to come.
Porcelain Crowns & Bridges
COSMETIC SOLUTIONS FOR A NEW LOOK
Dr. Baker uses porcelain crowns and bridges both to restore damaged teeth and to enhance their aesthetic appeal. Crowns are used to repair damaged teeth, while bridges are used to close gaps left by missing or extracted teeth. Damaged teeth and gaps can be problematic and cause bite issues, as well as affect nutrition if chewing becomes difficult or painful. Crowns and bridges help by restoring proper function and reversing the signs of wear and tear. Your dentist will expertly color-match your crown or bridge to blend in with your surrounding teeth.
NATURAL-LOOKING AND EASY TO PLACE
If you have a cavity, you may need a filling. After removing all decay, your dentist will replace that compromised tooth structure with filling material. Dr. Baker uses tooth-colored composite so that your filling blends in with your other teeth and looks completely natural when you smile. Composite fillings offer a more natural-looking solution compared to traditional amalgam (silver) fillings.
SureSmile Orthodontic Aligners
SMART SMILE CORRECTION
SureSmile offers clear, high-performance aligners using the latest in dental technology and materials. They are custom fit based on your existing smile and sit comfortably over your teeth to move them gently into their ideal positions. This personalized treatment takes into account each patient’s precise tooth-movement and smile goals. SureSmile aligners are made of Essix ACE Plastic, which is a leading dental plastic used for the fabrication of clear aligners.
A LOW-COST ALTERNATIVE TO VENEERS
Dental bonding can help to reshape your smile for a fraction of the cost of porcelain veneers. Dr. Baker will bond tooth-colored composite to the surfaces of your teeth and sculpt it to look natural and blend in with your existing smile. This process is ideal for correcting imperfections such as chips and stains. Dental bonding is a cheaper alternative to veneers, but the results are not as long-lasting. Bonding is also less resistant to future staining than porcelain veneers. Dr. Baker will discuss with you which option best suits your individual needs.
RESHAPING GUMMY SMILES
A gummy smile can greatly affect your appearance and self-esteem, but there is a solution. Dr. Baker can do cosmetic gum contouring to remove excess tissue and reshape your gumline. We use a diode laser, which provides fast, effective results with maximum patient comfort. There’s no need for local anesthesia or sutures. Using the laser also minimizes bleeding and doesn’t affect the surrounding tissue. What’s more, your tissue heals faster, which means recovery time is short.
Inlays and Onlays
COSMETIC TREATMENT FOR LARGE CAVITIES
Have you ever heard of inlays and onlays? An inlay is used to restore teeth affected by cavities. They are used when there is a large area of the tooth that needs to be filled that a filling cannot fix. Inlays restore the tooth structure and seal it from food and bacteria. Onlays are very similar to inlays, but they are larger. They are used if you have decay that is too extensive for a filling but doesn’t yet require a crown. Both inlays and onlays are tooth-colored and look completely natural.
