Dental Veneers

Veneers are the quickest way to achieve that perfect smile you have always wanted! If you’re not familiar with veneers and how they work, let’s talk a little bit about them. Veneers are shell-like pieces of tooth-colored ceramic that are designed to fit over your existing tooth to create a more pleasing appearance. They essentially replace the surface of the tooth, erasing flaws and minor damage. We place the veneers by first removing a very small layer of enamel to make up for the thickness of the veneer. We then bond the veneer directly to your tooth. This process permanently adheres the veneer to your tooth, creating beautiful, long-lasting results.

Veneers, when properly maintained, can last for decades. The process of getting veneers usually takes only a few appointments for planning and placement. This easy procedure can correct imperfections like chips, fractures, stains, discoloration, misshapen teeth, minor alignment issues, and more. Please talk to our team to determine if veneers are right for you. If you are a good candidate, you may be able to enjoy the new year with a perfect Hollywood smile!

Teeth Whitening

Would you like a brighter, whiter smile this year? If you have been living with a stained or discolored smile, now is the time to make some changes! At Plymouth Dentistry, we offer both in-office and at-home professional whitening treatments. We can help you see the results you need in a relatively short amount of time.

Our in-office treatment can provide results in just one visit. This process is quick and will leave your teeth several shades whiter than before! We use a system called Sapphire Whitening, which is a combination of hydrogen peroxide whitening gel and laser technology. This in-office procedure is the fastest, most efficient way to get whiter teeth.

We also offer a take-home option. We offer custom-fitted whitening trays that can be used with a whitening gel to get dramatic results over the period of a few weeks. If you are willing to spend just a little bit more time achieving a whiter smile, or simply don’t need the whitening power that the Sapphire system offers, this take-home solution may be for you.

We also sometimes recommend the two whitening methods be used together for optimum whitening results. You would come in for an in-office treatment and then use the whitening trays as maintenance in between office visits. This process is the best way to make sure your smile is as white as it can be all the time! Talk to our team to determine which whitening option is right for you.

Cosmetic Crowns

Dental crowns are often thought of as an entirely restorative procedure. However, they can and should be looked at as a cosmetic procedure as well. While the crowns of the past were ugly metal things that were simply sometimes an oral health necessity, the crowns of today are designed to be tooth-colored to blend in with your natural smile. Think of what that difference can mean for a newly restored smile! Not only will you be able to ditch a decayed or cracked appearance, but your tooth will also be restored with a material that will renew the natural appearance of your mouth.

Our office uses ceramic and zirconium crowns to offer the most realistic appearance imaginable. They are colored to match your natural smile and even appear natural in terms of shininess and texture. We love helping a patient restore a broken smile and helping them look their best once again!

We can also use our beautiful crowns to replace missing teeth using a bridge or an implant. These replacement options support an authentic-looking crown in place of the natural tooth. If you have a tooth in need of repair or replacement, we have the cosmetic solution for you.
