Cosmetic Dentistry

A smile can be the most eye-catching feature of a face. With dentistry's many advances, you no longer have to settle for stained, chipped, or malformed teeth. At Shakun Salomons & Bray Dental, we offer many choices that can help you smile with confidence.

Even the most subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel about yourself. Talk to your dentist about the options available to transform your smile.

Some of the possibilities include:

  • Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to brighten teeth that are discolored or stained. At your first appointment, moulds will be made of your teeth to fabricate clear, custom plastic trays. At your second appointment, you will be given the trays along with instructions and the special whitening solution. You will wear the trays one hour a day for two weeks until the desired level of whitening has been achieved.

  • Bonding can improve the appearance of teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or that have gaps between them. With bonding, tooth-colored materials are applied or bonded to the tooth surface to correct these problems.

  • Cosmetic contouring involves modifying teeth to improve their appearance by removing or contouring enamel. The process, which often is combined with bonding, is quick and comfortable and the results can be seen immediately.

  • Veneers are thin custom-made shells designed to cover the front side of teeth. Made of tooth-colored materials, veneers can transform your smile. They can close spaces between teeth and repair teeth that are chipped, worn, permanently stained, poorly shaped or slightly crooked.

  • Braces are not just for kids. Orthodontics may be needed if teeth are crooked, crowded or do not meet properly. Some patients may benefit from a product we offer called Invisalign.
