A porcelain veneers treatment can dramatically transform the beauty of your smile. Veneers are thin shells of ceramic that are bonded to the front of teeth in order to conceal chips, stains, cracks, and a range of other cosmetic imperfections. In order to meet the diverse needs of our patients, Drs. Joe McIntyre and Dan Whiting offer both traditional porcelain veneers as well as minimum-prep versions.
If you are seeking the most dramatic aesthetic enhancement possible for your smile, consider a smile makeover. A smile makeover is not a specific treatment, but rather a customized treatment plan that includes multiple cosmetic procedures. Our team will work closely with you to plan your smile makeover and take both your goals and budget into consideration. Before undergoing treatment, we can even use advanced imaging software to show you the anticipated results.
An alternative to traditional metal braces, Six Month Smiles® can correct minor to moderate cases of misalignment, including overbite, open bite, and cross-bite. With Six Month Smiles®, we will affix clear brackets and wires to your teeth. Your doctor will carefully calibrate the force on teeth to gradually move them into proper alignment. The Six Month Smiles® system is more discreet than traditional braces, and treatment can typically be completed in a much shorter time.
Invisalign® offers a comfortable and discreet way to achieve beautifully straight teeth. When undergoing treatment with Invisalign®, you will simply wear a set of clear plastic aligner trays, which will gently move teeth into proper position. In addition to being virtually invisible when in place, the trays are also removable, so you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods. We also offer Invisalign Express®, which can provide results in a shorter amount of time.
At Smiles for Life, we offer both in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to brighten your smile. During an in-office Venus White treatment, we will apply a professional-strength whitening gel to your teeth to break up stains and whiten your smile by several shades. In addition to your in-office whitening treatment, we will also provide you with a take-home kit. This kit includes a custom set of whitening trays and a box of bleaching gel vials. Many patients choose to combine treatments for more lasting results.
Excessive gum tissue can detract from the beauty of healthy teeth and leave patients feeling self-conscious. To create a beautiful frame for your smile, we offer gum contouring. During the procedure, we will carefully remove gum tissue to create a uniform, attractive gum line. Our doctors use a conservative approach, only removing the minimum amount of tissue necessary to create highly natural-looking results.
