Cosmetic Dentistry in Tigard, Oregon

Cosmetic dentistry is more than the process of making your teeth whiter or straighter - oftentimes it is a necessary component of a person's oral health and serves more function than just cosmetic purposes. At our office, we are proud to provide our patients and their family with a variety of cosmetic dental procedures including teeth whitening, bonding, and veneers.

Teeth Whitening

Before and after effects of Teeth Whitening - Lisa Gitelson, DMD, Tigard Dentist Discolored or stained teeth are nothing to be embarrassed about; for many people it is just a fact of life. Discoloration can occur as a result of changing hormones, aging, lifestyle habits, and diet. Once the staining occurs, it is difficult to remove them, unless they are on the very surface of your teeth and have not worked their way into the inner workings of your enamel. If we are unable to remove the stains with a professional cleaning, teeth whitening is often a plausible solution.

You are likely aware of the many teeth whitening products that are available at your local drug store, but they often do not provide the results you desire. They may help the staining a little bit, but you will see a better result with the professional whitening you can purchase in the office.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding has many uses - it can cover up stains, make fractures disappear, and fill a tooth with excessive decay. In essence, it is a procedure that makes your teeth look perfect again. Dental bonding is simply a resin that is applied to the surface of your teeth (typically the front teeth). Before we apply the resin, your teeth are filed with an abrasive material to give the resin something to adhere to - once your teeth are ready, the appropriate color resin is applied to your teeth, taking on the shape of your surrounding teeth so that it looks natural. Once the bonding is applied, we take special care to ensure that it is the right shape and size and that you can comfortably open and close your mouth. Once you are satisfied, we use a light to harden the material and make it a permanent part of your mouth.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are another popular form of cosmetic dentistry that we offer at our office. Veneers are a simple, non-invasive procedure that help you to achieve a whiter, straighter smile. Veneers are made of porcelain and are custom fit to the shape and size of your mouth. As long as your oral health is in good condition, you could be a good candidate for veneers. The process is completed in two appointments - the first appointment is when we take the impressions of your mouth to have the custom veneers made for you. During the second appointment, we apply the veneers, making sure that they are a perfect fit and provide the look that you desire.
