Whitening procedures effectively combat teeth stains and discolored teeth caused by aging, food, and other substances such as tobacco. Many people turn to whitening toothpaste, but these products can actually wear away the tooth’s enamel (the protective part of your tooth).
Our in-office professional whitening is very effective, safe, and can last up to five years. Our Seattle cosmetic dentist, Dr. Kathy Gurtis, is trained to use the latest in whitening technology to noticeably brighten your smile without damaging your teeth.
Thin shells of laminate called veneers are placed on the surface of the teeth and can correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth and boost your smile.
Stronger types of veneers made of porcelain, also called composite veneers, typically last longer because they bond to the tooth. They provide a natural-looking smile, which is durable, virtually stain-free, and custom-created to precisely fit your teeth.
Porcelain veneers provide both practical and aesthetically pleasing smile results.
Bonding is often used to fill in gaps or change the color and shape of your teeth. It typically only entails one office visit with the results lasting for several years.
This common dental procedure is simple to perform. During the appointment, an enamel-like material is applied to a tooth's surface, sculpted to an ideal shape, hardened, and then polished to give you a glowing smile.
