Teeth Whitening

We offers several options for teeth whitening from simple take-home trays to wear 15-30 minutes a day or 1-hour in-office whitening to get rid of stubborn stains.  Schedule a consultation with Dr. Chan for what option is best for you!

Bonding

Unlike veneers or crowns, dental bonding can usually be done in only one office visit. Unless the procedure is being performed to fill a cavity, the bonding process can be carried out in the one visit and often without the need for local anesthetic.  A dental bonding involves the application of a tooth-colored resin material with a special blue light. This process “bonds” the material to the tooth, restoring the beauty and brightness to their smile. Dental bonding with Dr. Chan is an ideal treatment for a wide variety of dental problems, including:

  • Covering stains

  • Repairing small fractures

  • Treating sensitive teeth

  • Lightening tooth shade

  • Closing small spaces

  • Making teeth look longer

  • Changing the shape of teeth

  • Protection from recession of gums

Porcelain Veneers

The acclaimed dentist often explains that the idea behind veneers is similar to that of placing acrylic nails. Veneers are laboratory-constructed, custom-made facings, which are bonded to the tooth surface. Veneers provide excellent aesthetics because the laboratory can actually incorporate characteristics such as greater opacity, special stains and colors that allow an almost perfect match to your own tooth structure.

One of the most exciting techniques in cosmetic dentistry today involves bonding a thin veneer made of porcelain to the etched enamel tooth surface. The primary advantages of these veneers include:

  • Beauty

  • Durability

  • Flexibility of the material

Because porcelain doesn’t stain like composite resin, it remains attractive for a much longer period of time. In addition, gum tissue tolerates porcelain well, thus reducing the likelihood that gum problems will develop. With the correct preparation, veneers can be used to give a straighter appearance to crowded teeth, close gaps and spaces, cover stained teeth and fillings and generally brighten and improve your smile.
