There are numerous types of teeth stains; some are genetic, environmental or pharmacological in nature. The most common are surface stains on the enamel or beneath the enamel in the dentin. Surface stains are caused by foods, beverages and lifestyle behaviors, like smoking. Over time, surface stains may penetrate the enamel and change the color of the dentin, which darkens the overall appearance of the tooth due to the translucency of the enamel layer. When this occurs, the tooth often appears yellow.
Zoom is a bleaching process used throughout the nation to lighten discoloration of enamel and dentin. The Zoom in-office whitening procedure uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp to accelerate the bleaching process inorder to activate the 25% hydrogen peroxide whitening.

If pretty good isn't good enough, veneers can cover many cosmetic problems from a simple chip to misshapen teeth. It's the subtle changes that can make a big difference in your smile. A veneer is a layer of material placed over a tooth, either to improve the aesthetics of a tooth or to protect the tooth's surface from damage.
There are two main types of material used to fabricate a veneer: composite and dental porcelain. A composite veneer may be directly placed (built-up in the mouth), or indirectly fabricated by a dental technician in a dental lab, and later bonded to the tooth, typically using a resin cement such as Panavia. In contrast, a porcelain veneer may only be indirectly fabricated.
The next best thing apart from your natural teeth. Implants are bridges that are permanently anchored to your jaw allowing you to maintain a customary lifestyle. They can replace ill-fitting dentures and or missing teeth.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.
Invisalign is the new approach after braces to get that perfect smile. Instead of having metal bound to your teeth, invisalign uses a modern approach to straightening teeth. Custom made invisible aligner trays are created to gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on exact movements your dentist plans out for you. There are no wires to attach or tighten. You simply need to replace a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. The best part about this approach, is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.
