Teeth whitening is the most popular cosmetic service requested at our Richmond, VA, practice. Whether you have staining on your teeth or just want to brighten up your whole smile, professional teeth whitening treatment is the solution for you. A typical teeth whitening appointment takes one hour and can brighten your smile several shades. Give yourself a boost of confidence with a bright white smile.
Dental bonding can be used to address cracks and chips in teeth, as well as change the shape of a tooth for cosmetic reasons. Even small gaps can be fixed with dental bonding. Getting dental bonding is a routine and painless procedure. The composite resin material used is sculpted onto your tooth and cured with a special light until it hardens.
Veneers are a way to completely redesign your smile without undergoing a single major procedure. Veneers are made from a thin ceramic shell that fits directly over an existing tooth to change its appearance. This can change the shade and shape of each tooth to completely revamp your smile to be what you've always wanted.
To get a new set of veneers, your natural teeth may have to be filed to make room for the veneer around the tooth. Molds will be taken of your newly prepared teeth, and these molds are used to ensure a perfect fit for your custom veneers. At a final appointment, each veneer is cemented to your natural tooth and you leave with a new smile!
