Why Choose Michael T. Davey DMD for Cosmetic Dentistry?
- Take-Home Whitening Multiple Times Stronger Than Store Bought
- 100% Personalized Smile Makeovers
- Porcelain Crowns That Look & Feel Natural
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin ceramic restorations that are bonded to the front of the teeth, and with them, we can mask and eliminate a variety of cosmetic flaws at the same time, including:
- Stained Teeth
- Misshapen Teeth
- Chipped/Cracked Teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Slightly Rotated Teeth
You can get one to enhance a single tooth or an entire set to transform your smile. In either case, they always deliver beautiful results.
Typically, we can revitalize a patient’s smile with porcelain veneers over the course of just two or three visits. At the first one, you’ll discuss with Dr. Davey what you would like to change about your smile, and then he’ll take an impression of your teeth that will be sent to a dental lab to design your veneers. You’ll then return to the office where he’ll prepare your teeth to fit the veneers by removing a tiny amount of enamel. He’ll then take an impression of your prepared teeth and place a temporary set of veneers on them. During your final visit, he’ll actually bond the veneers onto your teeth, and your new smile will be ready for the world!
If one of the teeth in your “smile zone” (the teeth that show when you smile) becomes damaged or decayed, we can beautifully repair it using a variety of metal-free restorations. These all-ceramic crowns, inlays, and onlays are just as strong as their metal counterparts, and they can be specially shaded to blend in with the rest of your teeth. Thanks to his meticulous attention to detail, Dr. Davey will repair your tooth in such a way that only you and him will know that you’ve had dental work.
If you have a small chip, crack, stain, or gap in your smile, it can be easily fixed using a treatment called direct bonding. Dr. Davey will start by applying a tooth-colored composite resin to your tooth to build up its structure and give it a more pleasing shape. Then, after hardening the material with a curing light, he’ll gently reshape it to complete the treatment and improve the appearance of the tooth in any way you desire. This is one of the quickest cosmetic treatments we offer, and it can usually be completed in about an hour.
While there is a multitude of over-the-counter whitening treatments you can pick up at the store, most of the time, they are simply actually too weak to provide any noticeable results. If you would like to whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home, we can provide you with your own take-home kit from either Kor Bleaching or Opalescence. With one quick appointment, we’ll make specially-designed trays to fit your teeth and give you a powerful whitening gel. After that, you’ll just need to wear them together daily for about two weeks to make your smile up to 8 shades brighter.
