Cosmetic Dentistry with Dr. Shlafer
Cosmetic dentistry describes any non-medical treatment designed to improve the appearance of your smile. Dr. Shlafer offers a variety of cosmetic treatments at our practice, including:
We offer two options for teeth whitening that are both highly effective. The first option is our Nite White® take-home trays, which are custom-made to fit your teeth and can achieve noticeable results in just seven to ten days.
Alternatively, you can visit our office for the BriteSmile® procedure. This powerful treatment brightens your smile in the duration of just one appointment, allowing you to show off your new smile immediately.
Veneers and Lumineers
Veneers are thin shells that fit over chipped, stained, or misaligned teeth. They’re made from durable porcelain to ensure natural function and long-lasting results. Because they’re customized to blend in with your natural teeth, veneers can easily cover any aesthetic flaws in your smile and no one will know you’re wearing them.
We also offer lumineers at our practice, which are similar to veneers but require less preparation. They’re extremely thin and totally translucent, so they can replicate the natural color of your enamel.
Composite Bonding is a fast and easy procedure that can fix chips, cracks, discoloration, and other small issues with your teeth. The bonding material is made from a tooth-colored ceramic that we cure with a high-intensity light, before shaping and smoothing it to your tooth.
A smile makeover is for patients who need to reconstruct their entire smile. The treatments involved in a smile makeover can vary depending on your specific needs, but they often involve a combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures. Some of these procedures include periodontal treatment and dental implants.
For patients who have misaligned teeth, Dr. Shlafer is happy to offer Inman Aligners. These aligners use a unique design to guide your teeth into proper positioning and they’re easily removable for your convenience. For optimal treatment results, you’ll need to wear your aligners for 16 to 20 hours per day and visit us for checkups every two or three weeks.
