Tooth whitening or bleaching is one of cosmetic dentistry's most popular services. Several factors can affect the appearance of your teeth, including:
- Your age
- What you eat and drink
- Prescription Medication
Whitening treatment can lighten your teeth by several shades and provide an added boost of confidence to your smile. Southtown Dental Care offers immediate results with in-office whitening as well as take-home kits.
Advantages of Teeth Whitening
If you decide to whiten your teeth, here are some advantages to professional treatment:

Researching Veneers? We Can Help!
We can bond a porcelain shell to the front surface of your tooth for a custom designed natural look. Porcelain veneers are designed to be strong and long-lasting and can cover:
- Misshapen teeth
- Cracks and chips
- Unwanted gaps
What is a Porcelain Crown?
A porcelain crown is a custom restoration which the dentist can place on top of a damaged natural tooth. This cap is shaped like a tooth and is designed to cover the entire visible portion of the tooth down to the gum line.
Crowns can effectively restore the existing tooth's shape, structure, and strength, if your tooth has a fracture, severe decay, or you have undergone a root canal. If you need dental bridges, porcelain crowns can support the artificial tooth filling a gap as well as complete a dental implant procedure for permanent tooth replacement.
Our dentist frequently performs crown procedures that provide many benefits including:
- Improved appearance
- Stronger tooth structure
- Restored function
- Efficient treatment method
- Durable and long-lasting results
Dental crowns can repair teeth while at the same time improving their appearance. A crown is a custom- made to fit you and match your surrounding teeth.
Enhance Your Smile with Cosmetic Bonding
Composite bonding is a technique that has a long history of success. It can be used to restore decayed teeth, close gaps, repair chips, correct discoloration, and create a more uniform appearance. The treatment process is a quick, non-invasive way to improve your smile.
A Tooth-Colored Option for Your Fillings
Tooth-colored fillings are a major improvement over the past mercury-based "silver" fillings, also known as composite or "white" fillings. With durable ceramic material, cavities and decay can be treated without any of the risks previously associated with mercury fillings, resulting in a cosmetic result that blends with your natural teeth.
Replacing Multiple Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge
Dental bridges are designed to bridge the gap left by one or more missing teeth. They are composed of porcelain, alloys, gold, or a combination of these substances, and securely bonded to healthy adjacent teeth.
Inlays and Onlays - An Alternative to Crown and Filling
Inlays and onlays are designed to restore the original appearance and function of your teeth without removing too much tooth structure. It is possible to avoid a crown or filling with one of these options. Inlays and onlays are conservative restorations of porcelain that can provide a natural, beautiful replacement for fillings of silver mercury. Our office has carried out thousands of successful inlay and onlay procedures
Recontouring Your Gums to Show Your Smile
Excess gum tissue often causes a "gummy smile" and make you feel self-conscious. For more symmetrical, balanced results, laser gum reshaping is an advanced, virtually painless way to renew the gum contour.
What Can I Expect with Gum Recontouring?
Recontouring will usually take one visit to our office. During the procedure, the dentist will numb your gums, and then use a laser to gently remove a small amount of your gum tissue to improve the look of your smile.
A New Smile with a Makeover
The term Smile Design uses a combination of methods to enhance your smile. When the dentist designs a new smile, your eyes, lip line, coloring, gum tissue contouring, and facial structure are all considered. The goal is to make your smile look as natural as possible.
Am I A Candidate for A Smile Makeover?
With a smile makeover, we can fix multiple dental issues in one appointment. We take a comprehensive approach when giving you a smile makeover and can include the treatment of:
- Discolored and stained teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Uneven gumline
- Fractured teeth
- Missing teeth
- Tooth decay
What Is Involved In A Smile Makeover?
At your first visit, we will conduct a comprehensive oral exam and take x-rays so we can recommend the best treatment options for you.
To save you time and money we will recommend a comprehensive set of treatments to correct multiple issues at the same time. Your treatment plan may include one or more or the following:
A combination of these treatments can give you the smile of your dreams.
Full Mouth Rejuvenation
For the most natural cosmetic and functional results possible, full mouth rejuvenation involves a combination of techniques to restore your teeth, bite, and jaw. Dr. Nelson and his staff can successfully improve several conditions using computerized technology and an artistic eye. Full mouth rejuvenation can be the answer to many issues, such as tooth sensitivity, worn teeth, sore jaw muscles, and recurrent headaches.
Invisalign® - The Clear Choice for Straightening Your Smile
Invisalign clear teeth aligners are much more comfortable and discreet than traditional braces. These removable aligners are custom designed to move your teeth progressively to a more desirable position without the frequently associated discomforts of metal braces.
Invisalign is a clear high-grade plastic which is virtually invisible and can address the issues that most patients have with metal braces while straightening their smile.
Metal braces, although dependable consist of metal wires and brackets that are cemented to your teeth making it hard to take care of your teeth, mouth, and gums.
Benefits of Using Invisalign
Being more comfortable than traditional metal braces is not the only advantage Invisalign has. Some other benefits include:
- Faster treatment time
- Easier routine care
- Discreet and virtually invisible
- No need to change your diet
A Straight Smile Without Braces or Aligners
Instant orthodontics can transform a crooked, uneven smile into one that is straighter and whiter without using metal braces. Veneers can change the length, width, color, and shape of a tooth dramatically. Veneers are also resistant to staining.
