Are you tired of having a smile you are too embarrassed to show because of some smile flaws? If so, you are in the right place! James D. Powell, DDS, PC, and our dental team have great news for you! We offer various cosmetic dentistry treatments to ultimately give you the strong, beautiful, and stunning smile you have always wanted.

Our exceptional dentist, Dr. James D. Powell, can perform three different types of transformative cosmetic dentistry treatments that can quickly turn your smile around — teeth whitening, dental veneers and same-day dental crowns. Each of these offers benefits specific to your needs. The resulting smile is worth the effort and investment (plus you really can’t put a price on self-confidence!). Let’s take a closer look!

1 – Teeth Whitening

It’s no surprise that your pearly whites go through a lot on a typical day. Every time you eat or drink, bite and chew, grind your teeth or clench your jaw, you are affecting tooth enamel. This can wear down tooth enamel, allowing the darker dentin layer below to be noticeable, not to mention the staining that comes from eating dark foods like berries or drinking staining beverages like coffee, tea or alcohol.

Thankfully, you can revitalize your teeth through our amazing teeth whitening treatment option! Our dentist, Dr. James Powell is pleased to offer two choices, Zoom!® whitening for patients with busy schedules and KOR® teeth whitening for your brightest results. If you have sensitive teeth, Dr. Powell offers you laser teeth whitening to best suit your needs.

ZOOM Teeth Whitening: Able to lighten your teeth up to 8 shades, you can get these stellar results in only one 60-minute treatment. A gentle option, Dr. Powell uses it with our custom teeth sensitivity protocol. If you take care of your teeth after whitening (using custom whitening trays at home and avoiding staining foods, drinks and tobacco), your results can last as long as a year! Best of all, you can go back to your busy schedule with no downtime.

KöR® Whitening: If you want absolute perfection when whitening your teeth, KöR whitening is an ideal choice. With this treatment, your teeth can lighten up to 16 shades or more. It is especially effective in handling dark permanent staining that comes from taking tetracycline (an antibiotic that fights infection) or for acne. This whitening system works when other methods don’t. While it is a powerful option, it is also safe (mostly creating little to no tooth sensitivity) to use and long-lasting if you maintain your teeth whitening levels at home.

Laser Teeth Whitening: Not only is this teeth whitening treatment effective at lightening tooth enamel up to 6 shades, it does it gently without causing tooth sensitivity and only takes about an hour. It is safe on your pearly whites and is also long-lasting when you maintain your teeth whitening effects at home.

2 – Dental Veneers

These thin “shells” are worn over the front of problem teeth and are custom-crafted from porcelain or composite to suit your unique needs. They work when one or more teeth are stained, crooked, misshapen or chipped. Dental Veneers are held in place over your natural teeth as they are cemented to the tooth to correct a variety of tooth flaws, whether for one tooth, multiple teeth or all of them! Dental veneers are easily and quickly completed in two visits, and the results will astound you, especially because they are truly stain-resistant. They will also protect your teeth from wearing down further and keep them bright! Just brush and floss your teeth daily to keep them looking their best for years to come.

If your teeth can’t handle traditional dental veneers, then you might be the perfect candidate for dental Lumineers®. They are less invasive than others, thanks to their ultra-thin consistency, so Dr. Powell doesn’t have to wear down precious tooth enamel to support them. But don’t worry, they are so durable that they can last up to 25 or more years! You can be confident in their application because Dr. Powell has received the specialized training necessary to successfully perform this dental veneer treatment with only two visits to our practice.

3 – Dental Crowns

Do you have a discolored, unappealing or imperfectly shaped tooth? You can get amazing results using our CEREC® same day dental crown option! This cosmetic tooth improvement treatment allows Dr. James Powell to cover the visible parts of an unsightly tooth with a tooth-shaped cap. These CEREC® single visit crowns are 100% customized to your smile after taking an impression of your mouth. Unlike their traditional counterparts, CEREC® crowns are made in just one visit (rather than several) thanks to CEREC® technology. The result? You get a highly accurate and comfortable dental restoration milled from tooth-colored material (most often in ceramic or porcelain) and then polished and bonded to perfectly fit the tooth, all in only one visit!

If this is the summer you want to beautify your smile by correcting its flaws, you can choose from one of these effective treatment options!
