Teeth Whitening & Cosmetic Dental Care in Short Pump

As your Short Pump dentists, our primary goal is to keep your teeth healthy – but we believe you're entitled to a gorgeous-looking smile as well. That's why we offer cosmetic dental treatment designed to fix imperfections and improve the appearance of your smile, helping you achieve a smile you genuinely love to show off. Your cosmetic dentist will work with you to identify the current issues with your smile and outline your dental goals, then create a treatment plan to help you achieve them through our comprehensive cosmetic dental services:

  • Cosmetic Bonding: This is one of the simplest, easiest, and most convenient ways to completely revitalize your smile. Bonding involves painting a thin layer of tooth-colored dental resin over the front of the teeth and shaping it to match your natural smile, repairing small cracks or chips and effectively creating a completely new appearance for your smile.
  • Crowns & Bridges: If you've lost a significant portion of tooth structure or an entire tooth, dental crowns and bridges can help. A crown is essentially an artificial "cap" that's placed over a damaged tooth to replace the lost structure, while a bridge uses two adjacent crowns to support an artificial tooth that's placed in a gap left by a missing tooth.
  • Dental Implants: Implants are the most effective, long-lasting option for tooth replacement. Implants involve placing a crown over a screw-like titanium post that's inserted into the hole left by a missing tooth. But because titanium possesses a unique property called osseointegration, the jawbone literally fuses to the implant, creating a sturdy foundation for the artificial tooth and preventing bone loss.
  • Porcelain Veneers: This treatment involves attaching thin, translucent porcelain shells to the front of the teeth, then carefully shaping them to match the appearance of your smile. The shells give the appearance of brand new teeth and a brand new smile, but only require a simple, quick procedure to place.
  • Removable Dentures: These are a simple way to rebuild your smile after losing multiple teeth or all of the teeth. Dentures are made from lifelike artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, which is normally held in place by a light adhesive. Removable dentures are the most common solution, but we can also offer permanent dentures supported by dental implants.
  • Teeth Whitening: This simple cosmetic dental treatment involves using a hydrogen peroxide-based bleaching agent to eliminate stains and lighten the teeth, leaving the smile looking brand new. Teeth whitening only takes one office visit and can lighten your teeth by up to 8 shades, completely transforming your smile.
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings: If your teeth suffer cavities or dental decay, we can repair them using lifelike, tooth-colored fillings that fully blend in with your natural teeth.
