Also called bleaching, this treatment whitens your teeth from discoloration or staining.
Porcelain Veneers, Lumineers, & Porcelain Laminates
These are shell-like covers made from thin sheaths of porcelain or resin and fit over the front surface of the tooth to improve its shape, shade, and/or position.
Inlays & Onlays
Also called indirect fillings, this procedure is usually done when the cavity or lost tooth structure is too large to be restored by a conventional filling.
Full Porcelain Crowns
When a lot of the tooth structure is missing, a crown is put on like a cap over the tooth to restores its normal shape, size, and function.
These are titanium-based cylinders that replace the missing tooth root and can also be used to support dentures.
No matter what your situation is, our experienced dentists can determine which cosmetic dental treatment is right for you and give you the enhanced smile you deserve. Contact Baxter Dental Group today to discuss your cosmetic dentistry options!
