Dr. Barton and our staff strive to provide every one of our patients with a smile they’re excited to share with the world. A beautiful smile not only looks amazing, it makes you feel more confident and happy with yourself. Those with smiles that they’re thrilled to possess come off as more capable, self-assured, and friendly people. Their grins communicate excellent health and personal care. Wouldn’t you like for your smile to say the same? Dalton cosmetic dentistry is available to every patient, through a wide variety of procedures. No matter your aesthetic concern, we will find the appropriate treatment for your needs.
Whitening is a simple, super effective way to heighten the effect of your smile. If your teeth just need a little something extra, whitening them by a few shades will put you in an entirely new territory. Brighter teeth stand out, and they make your entire face light up when you smile. Too sensitive to whiten, or too busy to schedule an in-office appointment? The Kor Whitening System allows you to whiten dramatically without causing twinges or spending significant time in the dental chair.
The Whitening Process
We’ll make custom trays to fit your teeth and provide you with your Kor supplies. You will fill the trays with hydrogen peroxide solution, then wear them while you sleep. The trays create seals around your teeth to prevent whitening gel and saliva from intermingling. The gel stimulates oxygenation while keeping pores in enamel closed, to prevent sensitivity. After two weeks, your teeth will be permanently whiter, requiring only occasional touchups.
If you haven’t tried whitening in the past, we urge you to experience it. The extent of the changes teeth whitening makes to our patients’ lives simply can’t be described.
Like crowns, veneers add structure to teeth. Veneers are thinner than crowns, making them ideal for transforming the appearance of front teeth. Porcelain veneers allow us to
- Lengthen teeth
- Hide stains
- Permanently whiten teeth
- Reshape teeth
- Straighten front teeth
- Reduce sensitivity
- Make a smile symmetrical
- Rebuild worn teeth
…without significant reduction of natural tooth structure. In some cases, porcelain veneers may even fit over entire natural teeth – no preparation necessary. The porcelain material is akin to natural enamel, as light passes through it similarly. One or several veneers will tend to specific teeth, while full sets of veneers will create an entirely new smile.
Teeth whitening and porcelain veneers are just a few of the tools in our dental arsenal. A smile makeover employs these and other techniques to create the exact smile that you’ve envisioned. The teeth that emerge from your smile makeover will be tailored to your specifications, but will still be your own. Dr. Billy Barton is a talented aesthetic dentist, and will leave your smile unique even as he enhances it.
You won’t emerge from our office with a cookie-cutter smile, but one that’s been individually shaped.
