A beautiful smile is not only eye-catching, but it sends an impression of success, professionalism, confidence and good health. Using the latest advances in cosmetic dentistry in Fairfax, we can transform your imperfect smile into the one you've always dreamed of. With artistic and scientific precision, we will use one or several techniques to achieve the most natural, magnificent results.
The following are our specialties:
Teeth Whitening is a very popular procedure in cosmetic dentistry in Farifax, VA. It is a relatively easy and effective technique for obtaining a brighter smile. We can provide in-office whitening using BriteSmile or Rembrandt light activated processes, or you can use an at-home tray method.
Bonding is a procedure where tooth-colored composite resin material is applied and hardened with a special light. The material bonds to the tooth and can be used to fill in gaps, chips, spaces , chips and cavities. This can completely change the dimensions and look of teeth.
Enamel Shaping (Contouring) is the process of shaping natural teeth to improve their appearance. Shaping can be used to correct minor cases of crowded or overlapping teeth, smooth rough edges, or make small adjustments to the shape of a tooth.
Veneers are made of porcelain and constructed to bond to the front surfaces of teeth. They are used most commonly to close spaces and straighten, whiten and repair chipped or worn teeth. The tooth must be filed down some in order to accommodate the thickness of the veneer, which is only 1mm. This process helps ensure a natural look.
Caps (Crowns) are seldom used for the purpose of cosmetic correction since the advent of veneers, but sometimes a crown is the best choice for a particular tooth. A tooth with a bad fracture or a large filling that is breaking down or has decay around it, may be better off with a crown.
White fillings are a more natural looking, tooth-colored material that is superior in appearance to silver or gold fillings. Since teeth are translucent, dark fillings cause the whole tooth to appear darker when viewed from the side. Replacing dark fillings with white fillings will greatly improve the appearance of your smile.
