Teeth whitening has quickly become the most commonly performed cosmetic dental procedure in the U.S. One look at the remarkable difference just one whitening treatment can make to the complexion of your smile and it's easy to see why.
Teeth whitening is a safe and easy option for anyone looking to reverse the impact a lifetime of consuming tooth-staining foods and drinks can have on the appearance of your smile. Depending on your individual preference, you can lighten just your upper teeth, or both your upper and lower teeth.
Teeth whitening treatments are not for everyone. Your oral health must be in good condition before starting any whitening treatment. Call our NE Salem dentist office to schedule your tooth whitening consultation with Willis Dental today.
Dental tooth bonding utilizes a resin that's placed on the front or back surface of a patient's teeth to lighten stains, close minor gaps, correct crooked teeth, or restore decayed teeth. Once a tooth is prepared, a bonding resin is placed into position. The tooth is then colored and shaped to improve the form and function of your smile. Once cured using a high-intensity light, the surface of the tooth is polished to blend seamlessly into the natural appearance of any smile.
Dental bonding treatments generally last from three to five years before any repairs become necessary. Willis Dental can complete tooth bonding restorations during just one office visit. Get the smile you've always wanted with dental tooth bonding.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth, helping to correct the appearance of uneven, chipped, stained, or crooked teeth. These ultra-thin veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to stains from substances like coffee, tea, or tobacco.
It typically takes three visits to our dentist office in Salem to complete the placement of dental veneers. During your initial appointment, Dr. Willis will take an impression of your teeth that will be used in the creation of your custom veneers. Your second appointment will involve Dr. Willis preparing your teeth for the placement of your veneers, which will then be placed into position during the third and final appointment.
Maintaining your dental veneers requires the same commitment to practicing quality oral hygiene at home, including brushing and flossing daily, and scheduling regular exams and cleanings at Willis Dental.
