Cosmetic dentistry has skyrocketed in popularity over the past few decades. At Gregory A. Williams, DMD, PC, we specialize in several cosmetic services aimed at improving the appearance of your teeth and overall smile. From minor cosmetic changes to full-tooth restorations, we have got you covered!
One of the most common complaints we receive involves the brightness of our patients’ smiles. For this reason, we offer professional teeth whitening treatment. Teeth whitening is one of the most basic and cost-effective ways to improve your smile.
As we get older, our teeth pick up stains from certain foods, drinks, medications, and personal habits. These stains, also known as extrinsic stains, are easy to remove with a bleaching solution. However, many store-bought bleaching products leave people dissatisfied with the results. Because we are trained professionals, we use a bleaching agent with a much higher concentration than store-bought alternatives. Our whitening treatment could make your teeth up to eight shades brighter in just a single appointment!

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that completely covers the visible portion of a damaged or decayed tooth. In previous years, a dental crown was fabricated using a gold or silver amalgam. These days, porcelain is usually the material of choice. Porcelain is a ceramic compound that mimics the light-reflective properties of natural enamel. It can also be textured and color-matched to your existing teeth. Thanks to porcelain and other ceramics, crowns can also be used to fix the aesthetics of an unsightly tooth.

When considering treatment options for your cosmetic dental concerns, a one-size-fits-all approach will not do. Dental veneers are fantastic for patients who do not want a generic fix for their teeth, as each set of dental veneers is custom made and shaped to the individual patient’s teeth. Made up of an extremely thin sheet of porcelain, dental veneers are designed to fit your mouth perfectly to conceal your teeth. This can not only be a big improvement to your smile; it can be an instant confidence boost, too!

Dental bonding is one of the least invasive and simple dental procedures that are available to our patients. It often does not even require any sort of dental anesthetic; it is that gentle and easy to have it completed. If you struggle with problems with your teeth and are shying away from cosmetic treatments to improve it, then you perhaps have not yet heard about dental bonding.

A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that prevents cavities and tooth decay. Sealants are usually applied to the occlusal (bite) surface of the molars and premolars. These teeth possess deep grooves and fissures that are much harder to clean, especially for children and teenagers. Sometimes the grooves are so thin that the bristles of a toothbrush are rendered essentially ineffective. A sealant will provide a more even brushing surface and seal off the enamel from harmful bacteria. Preventing tooth decay will ensure your child’s smile remains beautiful for years to come!
