Your smile says a lot about you. It is the first thing that people notice and can make or break the impressions you leave. Any imperfections in your teeth can significantly impact the quality of your smile, your confidence, and how people see you. There are many factors that go into your smile, including flaws in your teeth, tooth discoloration, and even your gums. Harmony Dental can help you to achieve the smile you have always dreamed of, allowing you to finally show the world who you are, with a smile makeover.
Crooked teeth have traditionally been treated using metal braces. While effective, metal braces are a very prominent feature in your smile. Invisalign provides a clear alternative for orthodontic treatment. Rather than brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners. The aligners, which fit over your teeth much like a sports mouth guard, completely disappear from view. When you smile, the focus will be on you, rather than the metal attached to your teeth.

Discoloration dulls the natural bright white color of your enamel, which affects the quality of your smile and your confidence. There are many over the counter whitening products, but these products contain low levels of bleaching agents, and can rarely help you to achieve the drastic results you are looking for. Professional whitening can be done in one of two ways, in the office or at home. In office, whitening requires a single appointment and an hour of your time. Whitening trays involve the use of custom-made trays that enable you to whiten at home. This treatment takes one to two weeks to complete, depending upon your level of discoloration and your goals, but it allows you to whiten on your own time.

Bonding is a quick, simple, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that is often used to treat minor flaws such as chips, cracks, and gaps. It can also be used to transform the size and shape of a tooth. Bonding uses composite resin, a tooth-colored material made up of fine glass, plastic, and other materials. The material is very versatile and can be shaped to meet some different needs. After it is applied to the teeth, it is shaped to achieve the desired results and cured using a specialized light. Finally, we polish it smooth, providing you with a seamless restoration.

Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and onlays are types of indirect fillings, meaning that they are creating outside of the tooth rather than curing filling material inside of the cavity. They are designed to treat cavities in the chewing surfaces of your molars, where traditional fillings can compromise the teeth. While they can be made from many materials, porcelain provides you with a completely natural appearance. Read More About Inlays and Onlays at Harmony Dental
Veneers are another cosmetic treatment used for eliminating the appearance of minor flaws in your teeth. They are shell-like restorations that are made to be bonded to the front surfaces of your affected teeth. Veneers can be made from composite resin or porcelain, with porcelain being the more popular option. In addition to providing a more natural appearance, the material is also stronger and stain-resistant. Read More About Porcelain Veneers at Harmony Dental
Crowns are a common restoration for treating damaged teeth. They are made to encompass the entire visible surface of damaged teeth, protecting from further harm and infection while restoring strength and avoiding the need for a tooth extraction. Crowns can be made from many materials. Ceramic crowns provide the most realistic restoration, perfectly matching the color and light reflection properties of your natural teeth.

Aesthetic Gum Lift
Your teeth are not the only factor in your smile. Your gums also play a significant role. Even if your teeth are perfect, excess gum tissue can cause them to appear small, which can have a serious impact on the quality of your smile. An aesthetic gum lift, or crown lengthening, is performed to remove excess gum tissue, providing you with a natural gum line, which improves your smile as well as your confidence.
