Dental implants are considered lifetime teeth replacements. The titanium post is durable, effective and long-lasting. One of the reasons they last so long is because they actually fuse with the bone beneath your teeth. This process is called osseointegration, and it forms a strong, durable bond between the bone and the dental implant.
Teeth whitening is a great way to make over your entire smile. With the ZOOM whitening system offered at our practice, your teeth can be whitened up to several shades lighter. The great thing about the laser whitening results is that they are long-lasting, often for a year or longer depending on oral hygiene, and what you eat and drink.
We also take impressions of your teeth if you would like take-home whitening teeth trays. These allow you to touch up your results at home, without sacrificing the customized treatment you get in the office.
