Many people assume that teeth only become stained and discolored because of bad oral hygiene, but this is not always true. Other causes include the following:
- Staining food items like coffee, wine, and certain fruits
- Certain medications
At Valley View Dental, patients in need can regain their brighter smile with teeth whitening solutions from Dr. Miller. If you are hoping for fast, dramatic results, our in-office service can be completed in a single appointment. Alternatively, our take-home kits come with high-grade whitening gel and customized oral trays that are worn together for a certain amount of time each day whenever you have the time. Your smile will look noticeably whiter in just a few weeks, and our patients enjoy the convenience and flexibility the treatment offers.
Direct bonding is an excellent, cost-effective cosmetic solution for patients with teeth in need of minor correction. Dr. Miller will use high-quality composite resin (the same material used to craft tooth-colored fillings), precisely placing and contouring the area so it blends in with your natural enamel. This procedure is quick and comfortable – in fact, it can usually be completed in just one appointment. Our team often suggests direct bonding for the following situations:
- Teeth with slight chips/cracks.
- Teeth with stains that can’t be successfully treated with teeth whitening.
- Teeth that are misaligned or misshaped.
- Minor gaps between teeth.
Sometimes, a less-than-perfect smile is not actually caused by your teeth – an overabundance of gum tissue is the culprit leaving your appearance noticeably uneven or too “gummy” overall. Thankfully, Dr. Miller utilizes state-of-the-art soft tissue lasers to professionally remove excess tissue in the needed areas revealing healthier tooth structure and creating a more symmetrical, uniform look that you can show off proudly. This technology also improves the patient’s healing time and minimizes bleeding resulting in a much more comfortable treatment experience overall.
