Smile Brighter through Modern Dentistry!

Cosmetic dentistry is generally used to refer to any dental work that improves the appearance of teeth, gums and/or bite. It primarily focuses on improvement in dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.

Cosmetic Bonding

This is a conservative way to improve your smile by closing spaces, repairing chips, and reshaping your natural teeth to improve the appearance of your teeth and your smile. Similar to tooth reshaping, dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses a tooth-colored composite resin material to enhance your smile. This procedure is used to repair chips, close down gaps or change the shape and color of a tooth. Unlike other cosmetic dental treatments, such as porcelain veneers, dental bonding is completely reversible.

Teeth Whitening

Want a brighter smile? When it comes to tooth-whitening, you’ve got two options: in-office-based teeth bleaching, or at-home care.  Both tooth-whitening options use peroxide-based bleaching agents. At-home systems contain from 15% to 35% peroxide (carbamide or hydrogen peroxides). In-office systems contain from 15% to 45% peroxide.

Generally, the longer you keep a stronger solution on your teeth, the whiter your teeth become. However, the higher the percentage of peroxide in the whitening solution, the shorter it should be applied to the teeth. Keeping the gel on longer will dehydrate the tooth and increase tooth sensitivity.

There are pros and cons to each option, but before you try at-home tooth-bleaching kits, be sure to talk to your dentist. Not everyone will see good results. Bleaching will not whiten porcelain crowns or composite tooth-colored bondings.  Schedule an Appointment >>

Dental Veneer

A veneer improves the appearance of the visible front surface of a tooth by covering it with a wafer-thin, custom-made shell of tooth-colored porcelain. Veneers can improve your smile by changing a tooth’s shape, color, and size. Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers. They also better mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with your dentist.

Dental Crown

Dr. Buntemeyer is extremely skilled at taking a mold of your teeth and designing and fitting the perfect, custom crown for the best fit and perfect smile possible.A crown for a tooth is often needed either because of a very serious cavity, infected root, broken or cracked tooth, etc. A crown is a complete cap that is designed to replace the entire outer portion of a tooth above the gum line. A crown is made of porcelain and colored to exactly match the rest of your teeth. It also is custom designed to fit the best between neighboring teeth and for the top of the tooth to align or fit perfectly to the opposite jaw teeth for the perfect bite alignment. Learn More >>

Missing teeth, teeth that have been damaged by an accident, or sever sickness or other medical issues are just a few examples. Dr. Buntemeyer will design a custom bridge that matches the color of your other teeth and completes the perfect smile, fit and bite alignment that you need. Learn More >>

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a titanium screw implanted in the jaw and used to attach a crown, bridge, or dentures, etc. A dental implant is essentially a titanium screw that is permanently implanted into the jaw and then has either an artificial tooth (aka a porcelain crown) attached or is used for attaching bridges, partials or dentures more securely than traditional dentures, etc. Learn More >>
