If your smile doesn’t accurately reflect the way that you would like to feel about yourself, it may be time to consider the option of cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Laura Harkin offers a variety of treatments guaranteed to whiten and brighten teeth, as well as to restore chipped, cracked, broken and crooked teeth. Cosmetic restorations available at our office include:
Tooth-colored fillings Strong, tooth-colored resin fillings have taken the place of older, silver fillings, and it’s not just for appearances. These restorations can be bonded directly to the enamel of a front tooth or a back tooth to fill a cavity, strengthen the tooth, and reduce the risk of recurrent decay.
Porcelain crowns These full-coverage restorations (also known as caps) can be used to rebuild and restore an entire tooth. As a restorative material, porcelain is an ideal solution that offers strength as well as natural beauty and comfort.
Porcelain veneers Veneers can correct a variety of imperfections, including chipped, cracked or broken teeth, and teeth that are slightly out of alignment. By permanently bonding an ultra-thin porcelain covering to the front surfaces of the front teeth, we can dramatically strengthen and rejuvenate your smile.
Alignment For a clear and comfortable alternative to traditional braces, we recommend Invisalign. Dr. Harkin is a New Holland Invisalign® provider who can guide your teeth into alignment using a series of custom-made clear plastic aligners. For more information on metal-free braces, please visit our Invisalign page.
Take-home teeth whitening Our professional cosmetic teeth whitening procedure is an easy, non-invasive way to brighten your smile. Take-home teeth whitening solution and custom-made whitening trays offer high performance and maximum comfort as you watch your radiant, new smile emerge.
In-office teeth whitening For those seeking a faster route to a brighter smile, our in-office system delivers stellar results in just one appointment. This treatment is dentist-supervised and includes an ingredient to decrease the sensitivity that often accompanies whitening procedures. You can extend the great results of your in-office whitening procedure with good home hygiene and by limiting your consumption of dark-colored beverages. Try our take-home whitening system for periodic touch-ups following your treatment.
Dental implants Implants do more than restore a smile; they promote good oral health by helping to preserve your bone after a tooth has been lost due to trauma or decay. Replacing a missing tooth helps to keep the surrounding teeth in their proper places. Once the titanium implant post has been placed, we finalize the process by attaching a porcelain crown.
Implants meet the highest standards for single tooth replacement, and can also be customized to create an implant-retained bridge to replace several teeth. For denture-wearers who are in search of comfort and confidence, implants can properly retain dentures to make them secure enough for eating and speaking without the constant fear of slipping or clicking.
