We offer chemical whitening options for patients who want to be treated in our office, and who want to treat themselves at home. Our in-office whitening treatments use laser whitening tools to boost the power of our chemical whiteners, so you can get very fast results and brighten your smile quickly for a special occasion.Take-home whitening is a bit different. Youll come into our office to have a set of custom whitening trays built. Then, Dr. Yavari will give you a set of whitening products and instructions for their use. With take-home whitening, you can whiten your teeth at home and get professional-grade results without spending time in the dentists chair!
Dental bonding is non-invasive and affordable, and the treatment usually takes only 30-60 minutes per tooth. In this procedure, Dr. Yavari will clean and prepare your tooth, then apply a tooth-colored dental resin to the surface of the tooth. This resin will be shaped, sculpted, and trimmed until it looks just like part of your natural enamel. This treatment can restore chipped teeth, gaps in your smile, uneven and misshapen teeth, and much more.
Enameloplasty (shaping & contouring) is a minimally-invasive treatment thats often done alongside dental bonding. In this procedure, Dr. Yavari will use a dental drill to buff away imperfections in your smile such as minor chips, pointed teeth, and uneven tooth surfaces. This provides you with a more pleasing smile.
Veneers are usually made of tooth-like porcelain materials. They are designed to fit over the front of your teeth after they have been prepared and trimmed, covering up a wide variety of cosmetic dental issues including gaps in your smile, discolored teeth, misshapen teeth, and much more. They look and feel completely natural, require no special care after treatment, and can easily last 10-15 years or longer. However, veneers are not reversible, since they require the removal of some of your natural enamel during the preparation process.
