Get the healthy, flawless smile you’ve always wanted.
Dr. Kyle Winter is skilled in providing several cosmetic dental procedures that will help you improve the look and function of your teeth. Read on for descriptions of some of our most common procedures, and schedule an appointment with Dr. Winter to learn more.
Porcelain veneers are handcrafted, custom-made, thin shells of dental porcelain placed on your front teeth. They are stain resistant and custom-tinted to blend with surrounding teeth. Veneers can dramatically transform your smile by correcting flaws like:
How we can help: Dr. Winter will meet with you in a consultation to discuss your ideal smile and then create a custom design for your porcelain veneers. He will then secure temporary veneers to your teeth while a ceramist fabricates your one-of-a-kind restorations. Once the veneers are ready, you’ll return to our office so that we can remove your temporaries and place the final veneers.
Chips, stains, gaps, and cracks on your front teeth can easily detract from an otherwise attractive appearance. But if you’re hesitant about investing in dental veneers, consider cosmetic bonding instead. Although bonding doesn’t last as long as veneers, it is generally faster and less expensive than bonding. Plus, like veneers, bonding resists stains, so it holds its natural-looking color.
How we can help: Dr. Winter will use the same custom-tinted, liquid resin used for white fillings for the procedure. Once he has prepared your tooth or teeth, Dr. Winter will match a resin to blend with the existing tooth enamel and apply it as needed. A soft light will then harden the substance and he will sculpt and polish the newly shaped tooth so it looks completely natural.
You may associate braces with middle school or high school students, but more adults than ever are turning to orthodontics to improve their bite and reposition their teeth for cosmetic reasons. Modern braces can be made from clear or tooth-colored structures, and some dentists offer clear, removable aligners.
How we can help: Depending on your needs and desires, your dentist may recommend functional orthodontics, as well as cosmetic orthodontics, to reposition your teeth to enhance your appearance. Traditional braces involve brackets glued to your teeth and a wire that gently moves the teeth into proper alignment. Clear braces can refer to clear brackets and wires or completely acrylic aligners, much like a retainer, that move teeth. Your dentist will recommend the best solution for your teeth and lifestyle.
When performed by a dentist, teeth whitening, or bleaching, is quite effective. Your dentist can administer a higher concentration of whitening solution than over-the-counter systems, so the results are more significant. We offer several types of teeth whitening procedures at our office. Dr. Winter will help you determine the best solution for your unique lifestyle and goals.
How we can help: Dr. Winter and his team will fabricate custom bleach trays just for you, and provide you with a range of professional take-home kits that effectively and consistently whiten the teeth in about two weeks. Teeth whitening is a simple and non-invasive way to dramatically improve your smile. In some cases teeth whitening may not work for you, in which case you might consider porcelain veneers or cosmetic bonding to indefinitely eliminate stains.
