Are you unhappy with the color, shape, size, or spacing of your teeth? Do you have enamel that makes your teeth look worn and brittle? If so, our Northwest Indiana dental office has cosmetic dentistry solutions that can give you the smile of your dreams! Whether you just want to fix one tooth or get a complete makeover, we can provide exactly what you need to achieve a beautiful and natural-looking result. Give us a call today to get started.
Our veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are placed over your teeth to correct chips, cracks, breaks, crooked teeth, or heavy stains. We also use veneers for patients who have weak or worn enamel. They are often seen as strictly a cosmetic solution, but they can actually strengthen your teeth, too!
Veneers are placed in a two-step process. First, we remove a portion of your enamel to fit the veneer snugly against your tooth. You’ll wear a temporary veneer while your permanent one is created. It’s important that you are certain veneers are right for you because the treatment requires us to remove some of your tooth’s enamel, which cannot be replaced.
Our ceramic dental crowns are both a restorative and cosmetic dentistry option. We can restore the look of your teeth with crowns or place them over teeth that are heavily damaged or broken – no matter where they are located inside your mouth. The ceramic is very durable, lifelike, and will last for years.
For minor chips, stains, and gaps, cosmetic bonding offers a fast and easy way to make them disappear. A composite resin is applied to your flawed tooth, and this allows your dentist to build up the enamel and literally sculpt the problem away. Once you approve the final look, the resin is quickly hardened with a curing light, and you’re finished! The result will be strong, lifelike, and you can trust it to last for about 10 years.
Our in-office and at-home teeth-whitening treatments can brighten your teeth up to eight shades to create more attractive smile. The process is simple, quick, and noninvasive. Dr. Kapers uses Zoom! Whitening and offers a Whitening for Life program in which patients can receive free bleaching and touch-ups as long as they keep their regular sixth-month checkup appointments. Teeth whitening candidates should be free of tooth decay and gum disease. Our treatments can remove even the heaviest stains and last for years.
Does your gum line overshadow your teeth whenever you smile, causing them to look short and stubby? If so, our team can quickly fix this problem using our soft tissue laser. This enables us to painlessly remove any excess gum tissue to reveal previously hidden enamel, instantly making the teeth appear longer. This can create a better proportioned smile on its own or make a patient eligible to get a porcelain veneer or crown. Typically, the procedure can be completed in just one appointment.
Before you get a cosmetic treatment, we can show you what your new smile will look like using Virtual Smile Design. We’ll simply take a picture of your current smile and digitally edit it to reflect how teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or any other procedure you’re thinking about will affect your appearance. You’ll be able to design your final result right alongside your dentist so you’re guaranteed to love what you’ll see the first time you look in the mirror.
