- White Fillings
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the appearance of your smile. Bonding is similar to white fillings and can be used to repair minor flaws. In addition, bonding can be used to build up teeth that have chipped, fill gaps between the teeth, and improve the color of your teeth. Bonding and white fillings are wonderful options for those who want to improve their smile quickly and efficiently. Call our office today to learn more about bonding!
When cavities cause extreme decay, crown lengthening may be necessary to help restore a tooth. Contrary to its name, crown lengthening does not lengthen the crown of the tooth; it actually lowers the gum line. This is done to expose more tooth structure so the dentist can more easily place a crown or filling. An alternative to crown lengthening may be orthodontic extrusion, which does not require a surgical procedure.
Lumineers are similar to veneers, but require minimal preparation of your existing teeth. Lumineers are very thinly shaped porcelain that is bonded to your tooth. This results in a nearly pain-free experience at our office. Made of porcelain, Lumineers are an aesthetic, effective option for anyone looking to brighten and enhance their smile. We invite you to call us today to learn more about Lumineers, veneers, and cosmetic dentistry.
Orthodontics, or braces, can be used on patients of all ages to achieve the beautiful, straight smile you will want to show off. Often times, straightening your natural teeth gives the best results for Veneers, Lumineers, or any other cosmetic procedure. Contact our office to see if you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment and get the smile you’ve always wanted.

Teeth Whitening and Cosmetic Dentistry
Like many people, you may not be happy with the color of your teeth. Maybe you have even tried over-the-counter or drugstore whitening products with little to no success. You need an effective option for removing unattractive tooth stains and the dull, yellow appearance of your teeth. Our at home whitening system allows you to have complete control over the outcome you achieve with whitening. Initially, our office staff will make models of your teeth and will fabricate clear plastic trays that fit perfectly over your teeth. Please call our office to inquire about our at home bleaching system and our FREE Whitening-For-Life program.
Veneers are designed to improve the beauty of your smile. Veneers are an excellent way to redesign and reshape your entire mouth. Veneers are a very thin ceramic shell that covers your existing tooth structure. The doctor likes to say, “They are artificial fingernails for your teeth.” In placing these new veneers on your teeth, you are able to fix the look of issues such as staining, cracked teeth, spaces, and misaligned teeth. Veneers are shaped and custom-made in a dental laboratory to fit your teeth perfectly. When bonded to your teeth, veneers can make your smile look flawless and beautifully white.
A white filling is, technically, a composite resin which is bonded to the tooth. These “fillings” have been greatly improved over the years and are now the most widely used restorative material in America—mainly because they are white. They are an obvious aesthetic improvement over silver amalgam fillings and, in some situations, can last as long as amalgams. A white filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, and other minor dental flaws. Dr. Regan can closely match composite or cosmetic (white) fillings to the color of your existing teeth for an aesthetically pleasing smile and a filling that is not noticeable or obvious.
