At-Home Teeth Whitening
Over time, your teeth can become stained from the foods you eat and the beverages you drink, even if you brush regularly. Discolored teeth make you look older and may give others the impression that you have lax hygiene habits. The sheer number of teeth whitening products on the market today indicates the importance Americans place on a healthy, white smile. Before you hit the local pharmacy for over-the-counter products, give us a call to experience the power of professional teeth whitening.
We offer take-home teeth whitening services to brighten smiles up to ten shades over the course of two weeks of daily application. Patients receive custom application trays and professional doses of whitening gel. By wearing the whitener for a predetermined amount of time each day, patients achieve the beautiful, natural smile they’re looking for. Contact Byars Dental to find out more or schedule a teeth whitening consultation.
Let’s face it - after high school, the idea of braces is quite unappealing. But what choice do you have to correct a misaligned smile? More adults are turning to porcelain veneers to realize their dreams of a straight, white, winning smile.
Dr. Byars will work one-on-one with you to formulate a result you will be happy with, offering digital models and before-and-after photos to help you identify the smile shape, style, and color you want. After minimal preparation to your existing teeth to receive handcrafted veneers, we apply the thin porcelain facing for a permanent result. This simple procedure can conceal chipped, stained, or crooked teeth, so you can finally flash the beautiful smile you deserve. Never resign yourself to an imperfect smile when porcelain veneers can set you free!
If you’re ready to make a change with a noticeable “wow” factor, consider our personalized smile makeovers. Dr. Byars will focus on making your highly-visible front teeth gorgeous. With a plan custom-tailored to your goals, your smile makeover will truly reflect your vision for your smile. Call us today if you’re prepared to take your smile to the next level!
Metal Free Restorations
We recommend all-ceramic crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays to renew oral health and improve the cosmetic appearance of smiles. We use these restorations as part of cosmetic treatment planning for those patients who wish to conceal stains, correct gaps between teeth, or cover a misshapen tooth. Even after years of wear, all-ceramic dental restorations retain their flawless appearance, offering patients long lasting results. Additionally, these materials are the only options effective in treating patients who experience metal sensitivity.
Patients who would like to conceal or correct dental damage or flaws in just one day, may want to consider cosmetic bonding. Using precisely shaded composite resin filling material, we position the bonding over stains or use the malleable material to fill in cracks or gaps. Then, we use a curing light to harden the material in position, perfecting patients’ smiles. For many of those we treat, cosmetic bonding is a faster and more affordable alternative to porcelain veneers.
Gum Recontouring & Crown Lengthening
If patients have a gummy smile or stubby teeth, they may not actually need to make changes to their teeth. Instead, they may need a treatment known as gum recontouring. This treatment removes a small amount of soft tissue to reshape the gums and improve the overall appearance of smiles. We also use a similar treatment, known as crown lengthening, to reveal additional tooth structure to support a dental crown without adversely affecting the smile line.
Digital Imaging & Smile Design
One way we improve our smile makeovers and all restorative and cosmetic treatment planning is to use digital photos to help patients visualize potential results. We capture closes ups of patients’ teeth as well as a full-face image of the patient smiling. These images are then viewed on our chairside computer monitor where we can adjust the images to show patients the potential results of their cosmetic and restorative care. This helps assure patients they’re making the right treatment choices to deliver their dream smiles.
