Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer a versatile and long-lasting solution for a wide range of dental imperfections. These custom-made, thin shells of dental-grade porcelain are meticulously crafted to conceal the natural tooth and modify its size, shape, and color. The following are some of the benefits and details of porcelain veneers:

  • Natural appearance: Porcelain veneers mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel, providing a remarkably lifelike appearance. Our team works closely with you to choose the perfect shade and shape that enhances your overall appearance.
  • Versatility: Veneers can conceal multiple dental concerns—such as discoloration, gaps, chips, misshapen teeth, and even slight misalignment, making them an effective solution for a variety of cosmetic issues.
  • Durability: With proper care, porcelain veneers can last up to 10–15 years, providing you with a long-lasting smile transformation.
  • Stain resistance: Dental-grade porcelain is resistant to staining from common culprits like coffee, tea, and red wine, ensuring your smile remains bright and beautiful.

The process of getting porcelain veneers usually takes place over two to three visits. During your initial consultation, our team will discuss your goals, assess your oral health, and create a personalized treatment plan. Next, your teeth will be prepared by having a small amount of enamel removed to fit the veneers. Temporary veneers will be placed to protect the teeth while awaiting the permanent ones. Finally, your temporary shells will be removed, and custom-made veneers will be bonded to your teeth, resulting in a stunning, remarkably natural smile.

Zoom!® Teeth Whitening

Whitening your smile with Zoom is a fast, safe, and effective solution for lifting stubborn stains and making your smile shine. With both in-office and at-home options available, you can choose the treatment that best suits your needs and lifestyle.

Zoom!® In-Office

The in-office whitening process is utilized for patients who want to rapidly brighten their smile under the expert supervision of our dental specialists.

  • The process begins with an initial consultation, where our specialists assess your oral health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for the in-office treatment. Dental photographs may be taken, and your desired shade of whiteness will be discussed. 
  • On the day of the treatment, protective barriers are applied to your gums, and your lips and cheeks are gently retracted to expose your teeth. A hydrogen peroxide-based whitening gel is applied to your teeth, followed by the Zoom LED light to activate the solution. This light accelerates the whitening process by helping the hydrogen peroxide penetrate deeper into the enamel to break up stains more effectively. 
  • The gel and light activation process is typically performed in three 15-minute cycles, with additional cycles possible depending on your desired results. 
  • After the final cycle, our specialists evaluate the results and provide recommendations for maintaining your beautiful, brighter smile.

Zoom!® At-Home

For those who prefer the convenience of whitening their teeth at home, we also offer take-home Zoom whitening kits. This option allows you to achieve professional-level results in the comfort of your own home.

  • The process starts with an initial consultation, during which our specialists assess your oral health and determine if the take-home treatment is suitable for you. Impressions of your teeth are taken to create custom-fitted whitening trays, ensuring even distribution of the whitening gel and minimizing contact with your gums. 
  • You will also be provided with the Zoom DayWhite or NiteWhite formula and detailed instructions on how to use the trays and gel at home. If you select DayWhite, you will wear the trays and gel for 30-minute increments twice each day. If you select NiteWhite, you will wear the trays and gel overnight.
  • The treatment typically involves daily usage of the kit for one to two weeks, depending on the specific gel formulation and the recommendations of our specialists. 
  • A follow-up appointment is scheduled to evaluate your progress, address any concerns or questions, and provide guidance on maintaining your results and touch-up treatments as needed.
