The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry surveyed people asking what they’d most like to improve about their smile. The answer? Whiter teeth. The American Association of Orthodontists also found that nearly 90% of patients requested tooth whitening.
At Young Family Dental, we provide in-office and at-home teeth whitening services so you can choose the option that best fits your schedule and lifestyle. In-office ZOOM!® whitening can lighten your teeth up to six shades in just over an hour and many of our patients opt for this procedure because many feel it is the best teeth whitening method.
Porcelain Veneers are wafer-thin shells that are bonded to existing teeth to obtain a beautiful, white and natural appearance. They are used to mask many smile imperfections like chipped, discolored or misaligned teeth.
Dr. Christopher Young, and the other skilled dentists at Young Family Dental can show you how porcelain veneers can create your perfect smile. Our talented dentists can place porcelain veneers in as little as two visits to any Young Family Dental office. Traditional veneers can last 8 to 10 years on average, with high success rates up to 20 years. They may last longer if well taken care of.
Lumineers are a type of dental veneer, but don’t require the same preparation as dental veneers. They are less expensive than dental veneers and don’t require as much removal of your tooth’s enamel. They are also semipermanent (after application, they can be removed with minimal damage to your teeth). However, they don’t last as long as dental veneers and aren’t quite as effective at hiding tooth imperfections. Depending on your cosmetic goals, lumineers may be a great option!
Dental implants have revolutionized how dentists treat missing teeth. As a popular alternative to dentures, implants offer a secure and custom fit with all the benefits and convenience of real, beautiful teeth.
Because dental implants replace both the root and crown of the missing tooth, they are exceptionally sturdy. They are permanently attached to restore the function and beauty of your mouth and smile.
Cosmetic bonding is a great option if you just have some slight imperfections in your teeth. Things like a small chip, fracture or a bit of decay. Problems that are noticeable enough that you want to get them fixed, but not severe enough for a veneer, crown or other procedure.
Cosmetic bonding is a great method to repair small imperfections or damage to a tooth quickly and easily in a single dental visit. It is done by applying a tooth-colored resin (plastic material) to restore the spot on your tooth that is damaged. The material bonds to your existing tooth, and your dentist blends, shapes and polishes it to look just like your natural teeth.
