Your smile is an important feature. It is often the first thing that others notice about you, and it can significantly impact the overall impressions that you make. When your smile is less than perfect, you might feel self-conscious. This can cause you to try to hide your smile from those around you. Small actions like hiding your laugh behind your hand or giving a close-mouthed grin, might not seem like a big deal, but they can speak volumes, and affect how others see you. At Rho Family Dentistry, we can improve the quality of your smile, and boost your confidence, with cosmetic dentistry.
Similar to how traditional braces work, the rigid plastic of your aligners places pressure on your teeth, widening the periodontal ligaments to move your teeth where they need to go and then stabilizing them in their new positions. When treatment is complete, we provide you with a retainer to help you maintain your beautiful new smile.

Dental implants are a solution for replacing missing teeth. This treatment uses small titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone. These posts become replacement roots that are used to anchor your replacement teeth in place. Your replacement teeth are made from ceramic, a material that can be stained to match the exact color of your remaining teeth and that reflects light just like your real tooth enamel. Your gums sit around the ceramic teeth exactly as they sit around your natural teeth. The teeth are also anchored securely in place. They will not move around or fall out.

Porcelain veneers are a treatment designed to eliminate the appearance of minor flaws in your visible teeth, including small chips and cracks, gapping, slightly overlapping, small teeth, misshapen teeth, and discoloration that cannot be whitened. They are very thin, shell-like restorations that are made to be bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth, effectively covering over the imperfections. Porcelain can be stained to perfectly match the color of your natural teeth, and it reflects light just like natural tooth enamel. This provides a perfectly natural appearance.

Your teeth are naturally bright white in color. However, there are many factors that can cause them to become dull and discolored. Teeth whitening is a procedure that is performed to eliminate stains from your teeth and restore their natural brightness.
Professional whitening can be done in one of two ways. We can whiten your teeth in a single appointment here in our office. Also called chair-side whitening, this procedure requires only about an hour of your time. You can also whiten your teeth at home. We can create custom whitening trays, which are worn over your teeth to hold whitening gel against your teeth. This treatment typically lasts one to two weeks depending upon the amount of your staining.
