Porcelain veneers are thin tooth-colored shells that conceal dental imperfections such as discoloration, misshapen teeth, and minor misalignment. At our practice, Dr. Robert Rebert, Jr, uses high-quality dental porcelain, which offers a number of benefits. It is not only durable and stain-resistant, but also translucent to resemble natural tooth enamel.
Patients can achieve a dramatically whiter smile with our in-office and at-home teeth whitening treatments. The in-office procedure takes one hour and can whiten the teeth by up to 10 shades. During treatment, we will apply a hydrogen peroxide gel, and activate the gel with a special light. The at-home whitening option involves the use of custom dental trays and a lower-concentration hydrogen peroxide gel for 30 minutes a day, several times a week. Both options are convenient, affordable, and effective.
If you have a chipped, cracked, or discolored tooth, consider dental bonding. During the dental bonding procedure, Dr. Rebert applies a tooth-colored resin directly to the tooth, shaping it to mask stains and fill in chips and cracks. The composite resin is cured with a special light, and then refined and polished. Dental bonding is a cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers.
Do your teeth appear disproportionately small? Do you show an excess amount of gum tissue when you smile? Do you have an uneven gum line? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, you may be a good candidate for gum reshaping. During this procedure, Dr. Rebert uses a minimally invasive laser to refine your gum tissue and create a beautiful frame for your smile. These techniques result in quick recoveries and little discomfort.
A smile makeover can address your cosmetic dental imperfections with one comprehensive treatment plan. During your smile makeover consultation, we will examine your teeth and discuss your concerns, goals, and budget. Dr. Rebert will develop an effective treatment plan to meet your unique needs. We may recommend a combination of teeth whitening and laser gum reshaping, along with dental bonding or the placement of porcelain veneers. The result is a dramatic improvement in the appearance of your smile.
