Your smile is an important feature. It has the power to tell others a lot about you, even if you never say a word. Its quality can make or break the first impressions you leave on those around you. Even minor imperfections can have a major impact if your smile is less than perfect. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bend, we can help to improve the quality of your smile and boost your confidence with cosmetic dentistry.
Teeth whitening is a procedure designed to eliminate stains and discoloration from your teeth, restoring the natural bright white color of your teeth. There are two ways in which this can be done. Chairside whitening is an in-office procedure that requires a single appointment and an hour of your time. Whitening trays allow you to restore the brightness of your smile in the comfort of your own home. Results from this procedure can take about one to two weeks. The whitening gel used for chairside whitening and whitening trays is stronger than over the counter whiteners you can find in the oral care aisle, providing you with more drastic results in a shorter period.

Composite bonding is a minor, non-invasive procedure used to eliminate the appearance of minor flaws in your teeth, including chips, cracks, gaps, and oddly sized and shaped teeth. The treatment uses composite resin, a tooth-colored material made up of plastic, fine glass, and other substances. This material is incredibly versatile and can be shaped to meet numerous needs, completely transforming the appearance of your teeth. The procedure is quick, simple, and completely painless.
Porcelain veneers are another solution for eliminating the appearance of minor flaws in your teeth. This treatment uses thin, shell-like restorations made from porcelain that is bonded to the front surfaces of the affected teeth. With veneers, we can eliminate the appearance of chips, cracks, gaps, slightly overlapping, and oddly sized or shaped teeth, leaving you with a beautifully enhanced, perfectly natural smile.
Crowns are a solution used to treat teeth affected by larger chips, cracks, and decay. A crown is a type of cap that sits on the affected tooth, encasing the entire visible surface to prevent further harm and infections while restoring its strength. Crowns can be made from many materials. Ceramic crowns are made entirely from ceramic, a material that can be stained to perfectly match the color of your natural teeth. Additionally, ceramic also reflects light just like your natural teeth, making it impossible to tell the difference between the restoration and your real teeth.
Dental implants are a modern solution used to replace missing teeth. This treatment involves the use of small titanium posts, which are surgically placed into your jawbone, to provide support for ceramic crowns. The crowns are designed to look exactly like your real teeth, providing you with a perfect restoration of your smile, in addition to the restoration of the functions of your mouth, your oral health, and your quality of life.
