Thanks to our advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.

Whitening Your Smile

Teeth whitening can be very effective and can give you a brighter, whiter, more confident smile! Whitening lightens teeth that have been stained or discolored by age, food, drink, and smoking. Teeth darkened as a result of injury or taking certain medications can also be whitened, but the effectiveness depends on the degree of staining present.

Teeth Whitening provided by a dentist is the safest and fastest way to a whiter, brighter smile. We offer 2 options to fit into your lifestyle:

NiteWhite
Discus DentalNiteWhite



NiteWhite is a fast, safe, and effective teeth whitening system. The whitening gel is a solution, which you can use in the privacy of your own home using clear custom-fitted trays.

They trays, which hold the whitening gel, are comfortable and effective because they are fabricated from exact models of your teeth. The trays will fit and whiten more precisely than over-the-counter products. With convenient system, the tray is worn for 1 hour each day. In as little as 1-2 weeks, you can achieve exceptional whitening results.

The active ingredient in NiteWhite, carbamide peroxide, has been recognized by the FDA for many years as an oral antiseptic and is now used for its superior whitening properties. NiteWhite is available in a variety of carbamide peroxide concentrations to whiten even the most difficult stains.

How Zoom! Works

The Zoom! light activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home teeth whitening. The gel is scientifically formulated, pH balanced hydrogen peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth only to remove deep stains and discoloration, while leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged. With proper care and an occasional touch up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.

A Note of Assurance

Teeth whitening is a well-established procedure in cosmetic dentistry. Hydrogen peroxide, the active ingredient in Zoom! has also been safely used for many years in the treatment of gums and other oral soft tissue.

The whitening process is effective on most discolored teeth. Darker stains, such as those caused by antibiotics, are more difficult to whiten. The degree of whiteness will vary from patient to patient, depending on the structure of the teeth.

Veneers

Cosmetic Dentistry - VeneersVeneers may be used to modify or enhance the color, size, and shape of your teeth. Porcelain veneers provide an excellent alternative to crowns, bonding, ineffective tooth-whitening procedures, and in some cases, orthodontics. Veneers are made of a thin, ceramic material and are designed to bond to your existing teeth. They look incredibly natural, are long-lasting, and can make you look years younger.

Bonding

A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly restore your smile's natural beauty. During the bonding procedure, a thin coating of resin is placed over the damaged teeth, strengthening them and making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Bonding involves the direct application of tooth-colored composite resin and is typically used to create a more attractive smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry - BondingBonding can be employed to change the size or shape of your teeth, creating a smile that appears more symmetrical and space free. This single-visit procedure provides a fast solution for a more attractive smile and may eliminate the need for orthodontic treatment in some cases.

Tooth stains and discolorations that resist professional tooth whitening procedures may also be masked by bonding. Although bonding may not be as long lasting as porcelain veneers or crowns, it can last for a number of years with proper care.

Enamel Recontouring

Cosmetic Enamel RecontouringEnamel recontouring involves modifying teeth to improve their appearance by removing or shaping enamel. The process, which often is combined with bonding, is quick and comfortable. No anesthetic is required and the results can be seen immediately!
