a winning smile
Your smile is the first impression that you give the world, and it’s one of the main things that people remember about you. We would love to help you achieve your winning smile for all of those first impressions! We have a variety of cosmetic dental procedures and options to give you a straighter, brighter, and more balanced smile.
Crowns and bridges are commonly used for both restorative and cosmetic purposes. They replace broken and decayed teeth.
If you are missing an entire tooth or multiple teeth, implants that look like natural teeth can also restore your smile (and your bite). For more information about implants, please visit our Implants & Dentures page.
For a full mouth make-over that is also relatively simple, porcelain veneers are an excellent option. Veneers are thin porcelain facings that we bond to your teeth to reshape and brighten your smile. Dr. Hiersche will thoroughly discuss with you the look that you want to achieve with your veneers, and they will be designed to aesthetically fit your face and mouth. Natural is always the goal. No one will be able to tell that you have veneers; they will simply notice that you have a beautiful smile.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of “black triangles” between your teeth, we offer a procedure that gives you fast results and fills in those voids/open spaces that create the impression of “black triangles” or black pepper caught in the teeth. Using Bioclear Matrix, we fill in these voids and also close small gaps and spaces between your teeth.
Crown lengthening and gingivectomies can be used to reduce the appearance of a “gummy” smile (when the gums are visible above the teeth when smiling). This involves reshaping of the gum tissue along the gum line to expose more of the tooth’s surface. While this can be done for reparative reasons, we perform most gingivectomies at our office for aesthetic reasons. Sometimes a small amount of bone must also be removed to achieve the desired results and stabilize the final location of the gums.
We offer teeth whitening treatments with both custom-made trays and pre-made trays for at home whitening.
