We offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services in a wide price range to help you have a smile you’ll be happy to share with the people around you. Broken, missing, worn, decayed, discolored, gaps, crooked, uneven, "gummy"...whatever the case may be, we have a solution!
- Tooth-colored Fillings
- Gum Contouring
BONDING uses tooth-colored filling material to fill in defects and gaps on the tooth surface. It is an attractive, high-strength plastic that is sculpted and bonded to the tooth with a strong dental adhesive. It can last for a few to several years with care and caution.
CROWNS these days look so natural and are so strong you'll forget it's there! It's a great way to cover and protect a tooth and make it look great. When a tooth is badly damaged by decay, old filllings, trauma or when it's unattractive putting a crown (also called a "cap") on it might be the best choice.
BRIDGES are an "older" way of replacing a missing tooth or two. The supporting teeth on either side of the space are covered with crowns that are joined together with the missing teeth to create one solid unit. More often, patients are choosing to fill in lost teeth with dental implants.
IMPLANTS are the best way to replace a lost tooth! A titanium post is carefully placed in the jawbone and a tooth is connected on top for a strong, natural-looking, long-lasting, non-removable solution. Learn more on our "Implants" page.
VENEERS are made of dental porcelain and are thin coverings that are bonded with dental adhesive to the visible surfaces of teeth to dramatically change the appearance. Dental veneers can reshape your smile, and fix the appearance of gaps, chips, cracks, and other tooth damage. Using dental veneers, we can even straighten and whiten your teeth while we accomplish your other smile goals.
TOOTH-COLORED FILLINGS get rid of the dark look of old metal fillings and decay. Nearly all of the restorations we do are metal-free.Metal in or on your teeth looks unappealing and draws unwanted attention to your dental work. Mercury metal restorations are also damaging to teeth over time and have a history of health concerns. Our tooth-colored materials are completely safe, and look natural and beautiful!
WHITENING uses a gel and tray (either custom or stock) system to chemically remove stains and pigments from the enamel surface of natural teeth. Whiten at your own pace at your convenience with our at-home, highly rated products from Ultradent: Opalescence with custom trays and GO! with stock trays. We are happy to evaulate your teeth and discuss if whitening is an option for you.
GUM CONTOURING helps correct uneven or excessive gums over and around the teeth. We us a dental soft tissue LASER to remove extra and unsightly skin to improve appearance and ability to clean. Dr. Miller will help you decide if this treatment is right for you.
