Porcelain Veneers

A lasting way to achieve aligned, beautifully shaped, and white teeth is with porcelain veneers. With this treatment, Dr. Ruff applies a thin, fingernail-like sheet of porcelain to the surface of your teeth. Porcelain veneers preserve and strengthen the natural structure of your teeth while improving their size, shape, and color.

Dr. Ruff may recommend veneers when you have moderately fractured front teeth. She can also use them to hide permanent stains as well as straighten misaligned and misshaped teeth. Porcelain veneers are a great way to achieve a dazzling smile.

Metal-Free Restorations

When repairing teeth that show prominently in the smile, we won’t simply apply a gold or silver crown and call it a day. To preserve a person’s appearance, we can now create strong and durable crowns and bridges from 100% dental porcelain. This material can be shaped and shaded to mimic natural enamel in almost every way, even down to its slight translucency. With it, Dr. Ruff can create a restoration so lifelike, even you will have trouble telling it apart from your natural teeth!

Direct Bonding

For patients looking for a quick fix for minor stains, chips, or gaps, direct bonding is a much more affordable solution compared to porcelain veneers or a dental crown. Dr. Ruff will apply a color-matched composite resin to your tooth and sculpt it to look like a regular part of the enamel, hiding any imperfection along the way. The procedure itself only takes about an hour, is completely painless, and the results can easily last for a decade or more.

Teeth Whitening

Many people become interested in tooth whitening around the time of a special event, such as a wedding or reunion. This is because whitening is one of the simplest and most dramatic things you can do to improve your overall appearance. Optimal natural whiteness can be achieved with our custom tray-bleach system within 7 to 10 days. Let us know if you would be interested in having a brighter, whiter smile!

Aesthetic Crown Lengthening

If you flash more gum than teeth when you smile, Dr. Ruff can correct this problem with crown lengthening. With this treatment, the gum line is adjusted or raised to improve the appearance of a smile. Dr. Ruff may also suggest this procedure if your teeth look asymmetrical, too small, overly wide, or too short. If you think your smile is too "gummy", please schedule a consultation with Dr. Ruff.

 Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs

How Long Does Cosmetic Dentistry Last?

The amount of time that the results your procedure could last depends on which one you use, among other factors. Typically the quicker and easier treatments, like teeth whitening and direct bonding, fade after a few years at most. Veneers, on the other hand, last for well over a decade depending on how well you care for them.

As you can imagine, the quality of your aftercare is the other important factor in how long your cosmetic treatment should last. The better you keep up with your dental hygiene, the longer you can expect your results to stick around.

Does Cosmetic Dentistry Hurt?

Even if you have your heart set on cosmetic dentistry, you might be concerned about whether the care that you get is going to hurt. Fortunately, there’s nothing to worry about in this regard. Most cosmetic dentistry is non-invasive by nature; you won’t even need anesthetic for procedures like teeth whitening or direct bonding.

Procedures like veneers may be a bit more intensive, but we will be sure to numb your mouth completely before getting them. As a result, you won’t have to worry about discomfort in the case of these procedures either.

What’s the Difference Between a Crown and a Veneer?

If you’re new to cosmetic dentistry, it’s easy to be confused about the difference between these two procedures. Both involve creating ceramic restorations to cover the teeth. The difference is in the shape and typical use of these restorations.

Crowns are like small caps that go over the teeth, protecting them on all sides. This allows them to repair cracked or severely damaged teeth, but entails removing more enamel in order to place them. Veneers are thin shells placed only on the front of the teeth, which makes them ideal for purely cosmetic work.

What Should I Expect at an Initial Consultation for a Smile Makeover?

If you’re interested in a smile makeover, the first step will be a consultation. This will involve talking to us about what you want from your treatment so we can give you a sense of what kinds of procedures could work for you. We’ll also take impressions of your teeth and, using sophisticated imaging technology, give you a sense of how these treatments could affect your smile. Finally, we’ll make sure that your oral health is in good enough condition for cosmetic dentistry, performing any necessary restorative procedures before we begin.
