Cosmetic Dentistry for a Bright, Beautiful Smile
A bright, beautiful smile can increase your confidence and even make you smile more. We offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry procedures to bring out your best smile, from dental bonding and teeth whitening, to porcelain veneers and Invisalign® orthodontics.
Tooth-Colored Dental Bonding
Tooth-colored dental bonding is a quick and easy way to fix minor chips, gaps, and discolorations. In this cost-effective procedure, a tooth-colored composite resin material is bonded onto the surface of a tooth and sculpted to create a pleasing look. Dental bonding is so quick and easy that it is often used for an instant smile makeover.
Porcelain veneers can quickly fix teeth that are stained, chipped, or slightly misaligned. These ultra-thin shells of porcelain are custom made to cover the visible front side of a tooth, and can be used to dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Veneers are an excellent for fixing one tooth, or all front teeth for a complete makeover.
da Vinci Veneers™
We use high quality da Vinci Veneers™. Because we are associated with the da Vinci Group, you can rest assured that we use only quality materials from a company that continually strives to be on the cutting edge of dental technology.
To make room for the small additional thickness of the veneer, a tiny amount of enamel is removed from the front of the tooth, and an impression is made. This impression is sent to a da Vinci™ certified dental lab where the veneer is custom made to fit your tooth perfectly. You will be fitted with a temporary veneer until your da Vinci™ veneer has been sent back to our office and we can bond it onto your tooth. With proper dental care, your veneers will be a natural-looking part of your smile for years to come.
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns and bridges are excellent for both cosmetic and restorative purposes. Crowns help add strength and stability to a tooth that has been compromised due to decay, injury, or root canal therapy, while bridges fill in the gaps left by missing teeth.
A dental crown is a cap that covers the entire surface of the tooth. Your damaged tooth is first trimmed down to make room for the crown, and a digital image of the prepared tooth is made so that your crown can be custom-made. Once the crown has been manufactured, it is bonded onto your tooth.
A dental bridge is a replacement tooth that is affixed on each side to a dental crown. The dental crowns fit over the teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth to provide support for the replacement tooth. In addition to providing a more beautiful smile, bridges help correct bites, improve speech, and even reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay by filling in the gap that is left by one or more missing teeth.
One-visit Crowns and Bridges
At Kendall Dental Associates, we offer an advanced technology that makes the experience of receiving a crown or bridge quicker and easier than ever before. We utilize the Procera® System to create your porcelain restoration (crown or bridge) to custom fit your tooth. These technologies allow us to complete your dental crown or bridge often in as little as one visit to our office.
ZOOM!® 2 Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening procedures are a quick and easy way to brighten your smile, and with the ZOOM!® 2 system, your teeth can be six to ten shades lighter with a single one-hour treatment at our practice. The ZOOM!® 2 system is safe, effective, and powerful. A gel is applied to the teeth and exposed to the light of a special lamp, and dramatic results are visible almost immediately. You will emerge from treatment with a bright new smile. Your teeth will become as white as they can be.
Invisalign® Invisible Orthodontics
The Invisalign® system is the option for truly invisible braces. Instead of the brackets and wires used with traditional braces to align teeth, the Invisalign® system utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners to fix gaps, overlaps, and misalignments for a straighter smile. We will send an impression of your teeth to Invisalign® so that specialists can manufacture your custom aligners. Each aligner in your series is worn for two weeks, and then replaced by the next aligner. Over several months, the aligners gradually reposition your teeth. Invisalign® aligners are virtually unnoticeable – no one will know that you are wearing them.
