Professional Teeth Whitening
Smile With Confidence!

Are you hiding your smile? Over time, teeth actually become more absorbent and vulnerable to staining from food and other substances. This can cause people to become embarrassed about showing their teeth and a big, broad smile. 

Whitening procedures effectively restore the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. Products like coffee and tea, berries, red wine and soy sauce are notorious for staining teeth. More and more people today are choosing tooth-whitening procedures to reverse the effects of aging and abuse from food and tobacco stains.

Professional Whitening Provides Long-Lasting Results! 

Village Dental provides professional whitening solutions considered to be the most effective and safest method to achieve the bright smile you want. Done properly, tooth whitening can last as long as five years. Over-the-counter whitening systems are somewhat effective, as long as directions are followed closely

Whitening Toothpaste: Pros and Cons

Some commercially available “whitening toothpastes” can be somewhat effective at removing stains and making teeth a few shades brighter. However, many of these products have abrasive substances that can actually wear away your tooth’s enamel. These products also are not as effective on pitted or badly discolored teeth, or on restorations such as crowns, bridges, bonding, and tooth-colored fillings (porcelain veneers or dental bonding may be more appropriate in this case).

Porcelain Veneers
Get Your Hollywood Smile!

Are your teeth chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced, or crooked? Veneers may be a great option for you! 

Veneers are like “false fingernails” – thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. With a long life expectancy and high resistance to staining from coffee, tea, or cigarette smoke, veneers are a great long-term solution to a healthy, happy smile.

The Veneer Process

After your teeth are lightly prepared for veneers, the dentist takes an impression which is sent to the lab technician for creating your perfect smile. 

Veneers are generally irreversible because it’s necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell. To apply the veneer, the tooth is cleansed and a material is applied to achieve the bond.

Picture Perfect

Usually, veneers take three appointments: diagnosis and treatment planning, preparation, and bonding. In a matter of weeks, you will have a smile that lights up a room! Village Dental Group will help change your insecurities into complete confidence in the appearance of your teeth.
