Are there several imperfections riddled throughout your smile? You might be expecting us to deal with these issues one at a time, but we can address them all at once with the help of veneers. These thin, durable porcelain shells can be placed over the fronts of the teeth that you want to improve. They can be used to hide discoloration, gaps, cracks, and minor misalignment issues all at once, leaving you with a smile you can show off without hesitation.

Metal-Free Dental Crowns

In the last couple of decades, dentists have started favoring tooth-colored materials to make crowns and other restorations. These crowns can be color-matched to the rest of your smile so that they look just like your natural teeth; many people won’t even be able to tell that you even have a crown and will simply admire your dazzling grin. As an additional benefit, metal-free crowns let you avoid the uncomfortable dental sensitivity that was often caused by metal crowns.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

Accidents that leave the teeth chipped are all too common, and even a small chip can make it harder to show off your smile. Dr. Ranjbaran offers an affordable, fast, and simple way to repair minor chips and other imperfections: cosmetic bonding. We just take some composite resin (which is also used to make tooth-colored fillings), place it on the enamel, and carefully mold it to hide any imperfections and reshape the tooth as needed.

Teeth Whitening

Sometimes, tooth stains and discoloration don’t go away no matter how much you brush or use whitening strips. This is often because the source of the discoloration is actually beneath the enamel and can’t be removed with store-bought products. In these cases, you need a professional whitening treatment to brighten your smile. An in-office treatment can yield results in about an hour; at-home treatments usually take about two weeks, but the results are just as radiant.

Gum Recontouring

If you’ve ever found yourself distracted by your gums when looking at your smile in the mirror, there may be something wrong. Too much gum tissue can draw attention away from your teeth or cover an excessive amount of enamel to make the teeth look smaller than they should. Luckily, a gummy smile is not beyond help. All we need to do is remove the tissue that isn’t needed to reshape your gum line and restore balance to your grin.
