Veneers

For several decades now, dental veneers have been pretty much the gold standard for cosmetic dental services. In a dental veneer procedure, a thin porcelain shell is fitted over the front of your teeth, providing you with a stunning smile that will turn heads and get you noticed. 

For this procedure to work, your tooth enamel is first gently filed down, and then an impression of your teeth is created. Once we have this impression, we can create custom veneers that are fit especially, uniquely for you. 

If you’re wondering whether veneers are right for you, they are generally for our patients who have dark staining on their teeth which whitening or bleaching fails to correct. Another common reason for veneers is to cover chipped or otherwise fractured front teeth. Injuries to your teeth shouldn’t stop you from having the beautiful smile you deserve!

Teeth Whitening

Whether it’s from habitual coffee drinking, smoking, or the natural passage of time, teeth can become discolored, stained, and yellowed. Fortunately, teeth whitening services are a quick, easy solution to bring new life and vibrancy to your smile! 

We recommend this procedure to our patients who don’t really need anything more than some simple brightening and whitening, and as an affordable alternative to more expensive procedures. While there are “do-it-yourself” whitening kits available, in our experience, you’ll always get the best results when you trust experts like us to perform the procedure for you. Over-the-counter options don’t always deliver the satisfying results that most of our patients are after.

Botox® Treatments

We know what you’re thinking — Botox?! I thought this was a dental clinic! Do they treat wrinkles too? That’s a common thought. But did you know that aside from the very common use of Botox to treat facial lines and wrinkles, it has also found incredible usefulness in other medically therapeutic avenues? 

Botox can be used to treat several common dental problems, including temporomandibular disorders (jaw pain), teeth grinding, teeth clenching, facial asymmetry, high lip lines, “gummy” smiles, mandibular spasms, and more! You learn something new every day, right?

We would be more than happy to discuss with you the possibilities that Botox treatments can provide for your cosmetic dental health and confidence. Contact us today to learn more about these innovative and effective treatments!

Enamel Bonding

The enamel bonding procedure is another solution for our patients that have dark stains on their teeth or have a chipped tooth. This method uses a composite bonding material that is the same material used for white dental fillings. One of our skilled dentists can mold this material perfectly to your teeth, creating the ideal, beautiful shape you desire. This produces similar results to veneers, but has its own list of pros and cons when compared to that procedure. Your dentist at Gonzalez Dental Care would love to go over all of the options available to you and find the solution that fits your lifestyle and budget!

Invisalign® Braces

Since first being introduced in 1999, Invisalign braces have changed the way that many of our patients have approached the idea of tooth alignment. While it’s certainly common to see teenagers sporting braces for much of their high school years, there’s a certain social aspect to having braces as an adult that many of our patients would rather not contend with, and that’s perfectly acceptable! We believe that you should be able to have straighter, healthier teeth in the method that makes you the most comfortable. If braces work for you, fantastic! If you’d like a more discreet system like Invisalign, then we’re proud to be able to offer that service as well. 

As the name suggests, the advantage to Invisalign braces is that they are practically undetectable. Most people won’t even notice that you’re wearing them unless you point it out! But there’s another advantage to using a system like Invisalign that goes beyond simply having straighter teeth — correcting misaligned teeth can also alleviate pain and headaches that are caused by the condition. Although there is certainly a cosmetic benefit to straighter teeth, there are practical, oral health benefits as well! Because of this, Invisalign is an incredibly popular option for our patients.

Enamel Abrasion

To remove discoloration on our patients’ teeth, we’ll often recommend an enamel abrasion procedure. To remove surface stains caused by smoking or consuming soda, coffee, and wine, we use a micro-abrasion machine with a fine pumice stone to gently polish them away. This procedure works wonders for surface level stains, but isn’t as effective when stains have permeated the tooth. The experienced and friendly dentists at Gonzalez Dental Care can certainly recommend when this procedure would be the most beneficial option for you.
