Porcelain veneers offer a great way for patients to completely “do-over” their smile! These custom, wafer-thin restorations are designed to fit over just the visible surfaces of teeth, hiding a wide variety of cosmetic imperfections all at once behind a new, flawlessly beautiful appearance. This process only takes as little as two appointments to complete. Better yet, the durable structure of the veneers actually resists staining and can last for up to 15 years or even longer.
While porcelain veneers are a very popular cosmetic procedure, there is one possible downside. Dr. Stapleton will need to remove a small amount of natural enamel from the teeth to accommodate their placement, which makes traditional veneers essentially permanent. If you’d like to have the option to return to your natural smile in the future, Lumineers may be a good alternative! This style of veneer is even thinner – only about the width of a contact lens – and can be successfully placed without any significant dental alterations.
At MDRN Dental, we’re happy to leave tired metal fillings, crowns, and other restorations safely in the past. Whenever possible, Dr. Stapleton recommends metal-free materials for a superior aesthetic finish that’s also durable and healthy. Our top-tier ceramics even reflect light in the same way as your original tooth enamel! Plus, they are 100% biocompatible, which is great news for patients who have suffered with painful, metal-related sensitivities in the past.
Direct bonding is a fast and simple way to correct relatively small cosmetic issues, such as thin gaps between two teeth or a misshapen edge. We’ll apply tooth-colored composite resin to the requested area and then sculpt it into place with an aesthetic flair, making sure the new “addition” blends right in with the smile that surrounds it. While direct bonding may not be as permanent as porcelain veneers, achieving your desired improvements only takes a single appointment, and the changes can last for several years too.
In-Practice Teeth Whitening
Yellow discoloration, dark staining, noticeable dullness – these cosmetic problems can really take a toll on someone’s self-confidence. Thankfully, they don’t have to be permanent. At MDRN Dental, we use top-of-the-line professional whitening brands like ZOOM! and KöR to dramatically brighten tooth enamel in as little as one appointment. This may be the perfect service for you if you have a big event (like a wedding or graduation ceremony) coming up fast where you would like to look your best.
At-Home Teeth Whitening
If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at a more gradual pace and from the comfort of your living room, take-home professional kits are also available. Our team will provide the whitening gel and custom oral trays. All you have to do is wear them as directed whenever you have the free time. Some patients see positive changes after just one application, with the most noticeable improvements happening after a few weeks of regular use.
Gum Recontouring/Crown Lengthening
Sometimes, the teeth aren’t actually to blame if you’re unhappy with your smile! An excessive or unbalanced amount of gum tissue may be the culprit instead. Dr. Stapleton can reshape the natural gum line, correcting any overly “gummy” areas and more properly complimenting your overall appearance. He can also perform crown lengthening, which involves revealing more of your beautiful teeth to the naked eye and correcting overly “short” smiles.
Virtual Smile Design
Taking the first step towards a smile makeover can often make someone feel nervous or unsure – after all, what if you end up not liking the results? At MDRN Dental, we want to inspire confidence in our patients from the very beginning, which is why Dr. Stapleton regularly uses virtual smile design technology to reflect future positive changes right here in the present. All our team needs is a current photo, and the image can be adjusted to show what you would look like with new porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, or other cosmetic services. You can even take these new pictures home and share them with friends and family before committing to a treatment plan!
