Improve The Look Of Your Teeth
If you are unhappy with your smile, we can help resolve a number of issues and give you more confidence!
Have you ever had disappointing experiences with store-bought bleaching kits? If you’d like to put the pearl back in your pearly whites, we offer professional teeth whitening kits you can use at your convenience at home. The whitening kits we use work much better than over-the-counter options and, as part of our specials and promotions, we offer a lifetime whitening program! That’s right – for just $149, we will provide custom whitening trays and a new tube of bleach each time you visit our office for your regular dental cleanings and exams!
If you have several smile flaws and would like to address them with one convenient dental service, we also offer a variety of dental veneers, including ultra-thin Lumineers. Dental veneers are an incredibly versatile cosmetic dentistry option because they completely cover the front surface of your teeth. Dental veneers can conceal:
- Misshapen teeth
- Teeth that are slightly crooked
- Small gaps between teeth
Many of our patients even choose to have dental veneers placed on all of the teeth that show while smiling for a dramatic, beautiful smile improvement. In most cases, we can create and place your custom dental veneers in as little as two visits!
If you have stains in your teeth or have teeth that are slightly misshapen, we can also use a process called teeth contouring to buff away the issue!
Improve Your Teeth Alignment
Would you like to get perfectly straight teeth but have put it off because you don’t want to deal with the time commitment and unsightly metal of traditional braces? We have the solution for you: Invisalign!
This series of nearly invisible clear aligners are so discreet no one will know you’re straightening your teeth but you! And, because they are made of smooth plastic that is custom made for your smile, they are very comfortable. You can even take Invisalign out for special occasions, meals, and for brushing and flossing! You wear each aligner for about two weeks, and with each new aligner, you take one more step closer to straight teeth!
Another option for improving your alignment is Six Month Smiles. These work similarly to traditional braces but use clear brackets and tooth-colored wires so they are far less noticeable. And, as the name suggests, the average treatment time is only six months! You won’t have to wait for years to achieve the straight-toothed smile you’ve always wanted.
Improve Your Gums
Perhaps your teeth aren’t the issue. Maybe you open your lips when you smile but have trained yourself to not lift your lips too high because you are self-conscious about a “gummy smile.” If too much of your gum tissue shows when you smile, making your teeth appear small by comparison, we can help with a gum reshaping treatment. Depending on your situation, we can even make the process much faster and more comfortable for you by using our state-of-the-art NV Pro 3 dental laser to reshape your gumline!
Or maybe you have the opposite problem – gums that have pulled back from your teeth, exposing your tooth roots and causing you discomfort and sensitivity. Not only can we help with that, we can help in ways that most dentists can’t! Our very own Dr. Shepherd is the only dentist in all of New Mexico that is certified to perform a gum recession treatment using the innovative Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique!
