Porcelain Veneers

Whether you have stained, chipped, gapped, or cracked teeth, porcelain veneers can help you achieve the big, bright, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. Eggshell thin ceramic restorations are bonded to the front of the teeth, enabling them to strengthen the enamel while also masking any flaw that’s bothering a patient. They are always custom-made to ensure gorgeous and natural-looking results, and you can get just one or an entire set in as little as two appointments.

Dental restorations prior to placement

Lumineers offer all of the same benefits as porcelain veneers that we outlined above, but there is one major difference: they don’t require the teeth to be altered at all. With porcelain veneers, a tiny portion of enamel has to be removed to ensure they lay flat, making it a more permanent treatment. But, with Lumineers, the restorations are so thin that they can be applied to the teeth as is. They’re able to deliver stunning results, but they offer a more conservative treatment that allows a patient to easily return to their regular smile whenever they want.

Metal-Free Dental Restorations

In the past, dental restorations used to repair broken and decayed teeth were made of silver or gold, which means they were very strong, but not exactly natural-looking. Today, Dr. Rensch and Dr. Laster can provide crowns and bridges crafted from 100% dental porcelain. This material not only looks like real enamel, but it’s able to match enamel’s strength as well, ensuring a patient can rely on their new tooth whether they are smiling at a friend or taking a bite of their favorite food.

Dental Bonding

If you have an hour to spare, then that’s plenty of time for direct bonding to take care of a minor flaw in your smile. For this treatment, Dr. Rensch and Dr. Laster simply apply a color-matched composite resin to a tooth, and then they artfully sculpt it to improve the enamel’s shape, size, and color. With it, they can make small chips, gaps, and stains seemingly disappear in just one appointment. Afterward, the results can be trusted to last for about 10 years.

Teeth Whitening

With Opalescence Whitening, Dr. Rensch and Dr. Laster can help a patient dramatically brighten their smile either in our dental office or even in the comfort of their own home. The powerful bleaching gel they use is able to cut through the most set-in dental stains, making those caused by coffee, wine, tobacco, or age practically vanish to allow the teeth’s natural whiteness to shine through. In-office whitening can be completed in just an hour, or a patient can achieve the same results more gradually with a custom-made kit they can use whenever and wherever they like.
