Dental bonding uses the same advanced material that we use for fillings. It’s tooth-colored, and we blend a custom shade to perfectly match your teeth. This material can be used on teeth that are chipped, cracked, have small gaps between them, or have other similar issues. Best of all, dental bonding is one of our quickest treatments (taking only one visit) and doesn’t cause any discomfort.

Porcelain veneers, also known as “caps,” have been a popular cosmetic dentistry option among celebrities since they were invented. (Many of those celebrities who you think were genetically blessed with perfect teeth actually have veneers!) Advances in technology have led to today’s veneers, which are very thin and translucent for the most natural appearance. They’re custom-designed to fit you perfectly and create exactly the smile you’re looking for – in only three appointments. Whether your teeth are severely discolored, misaligned, chipped, too small, or have gaps between them, porcelain veneers may be the answer for you.

If you have stains on your teeth, then you might benefit from teeth whitening. Many common foods, including such favorites as wine and coffee, can cause staining. To get the brightness back into your smile, consider teeth whitening. This treatment can make a dramatic difference in the appearance of your smile in just minutes. Dr. Lewis offers take-home professional whitening kits, or for those who want a more dramatic effect, in-office laser teeth whitening.

To get to your perfect smile, you might benefit from having more than one of these treatments. This is called a smile makeover. It starts with a consultation with Dr. Lewis, during which she learns about your goals for your smile and does a thorough examination. Then she’ll propose the treatment plan that she believes will work best to achieve the results you desire. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, so you feel confident in the treatment plan that you choose. The time it takes to get to your goal will depend on which procedures you select, but each treatment will get you closer to your perfect smile.
