Sometimes an otherwise healthy smile just doesn’t look the way you want it to. Perhaps you hide your smile due to discoloration or crooked teeth. Cosmetic dentist Dr. Jaeger’s advanced cosmetic services can correct minor or major issues you have with the look of your smile. In as little as a single visit, you can walk out with a confident, youthful, sparkling smile!
Porcelain veneers are thin, expertly shaped and shaded pieces of porcelain that are adhered to the visible surface of your teeth. After a bit of tooth preparation, Dr. Jaeger will place your porcelain veneers in such a way as to eliminate gaps, correct crooked teeth or cover discolored or stained teeth. You smile will look completely natural and vibrant. In fact, many of the smile makeovers you may see on TV begin with porcelain veneers.
If you are happy with the shape and spacing of you teeth, but notice discoloration or staining is giving you an aged, dull look, teeth whitening is for you. Under Dr. Jaeger’s supervision, a powerful whitening agent is used that can give you amazing results in a single visit. The procedure utilizes a special dental tray, similar to a mouth guard, which holds the whitening agent. The treatment is comfortable and fast, and afterwards, you see a youthful, bright smile!

In the past, silver-amalgam fillings were used in treatment of cavities. These fillings are very easy to spot, and can give your smile a dark, grey appearance, even when they are only in back teeth. Thankfully, you can now have tooth colored fillings. Tooth colored fillings are made from a composite resin that can be expertly shaded and sculpted to match your natural teeth by Dr. Jaeger. These fillings do a better job of sealing your teeth and preventing future cavity development as well and they are very durable. You also have the added benefit of avoiding mercury. Some patients even elect to have old silver fillings replaced with tooth-colored fillings.
When you are missing a tooth, the gap in your smile can pose several problems. It gives your smile a narrow look. Plus, a gap will often cause your other teeth to move about in your mouth, which can cause extensive problems over time. A porcelain bridge utilizes the teeth on either side of the gap as the support needed to position a porcelain restoration in the place of your missing tooth. Dr. Jaeger will first prepare the neighboring teeth for crowns. Then, suspended between the crowns, Dr. Jaeger will place a complete, prosthetic tooth. The results look and feel completely lifelike and comfortable.
Porcelain crowns can reshape your teeth to make them more aesthetically pleasing. They can also give your smile a whiter, healthier appearance. Dr. Jaeger will prepare your tooth, which will act as the underlying structure for your porcelain crown. He selects the appropriate shape and shade of the crown and places it very precisely so that it looks and feels completely comfortable and natural. Porcelain crowns are long lasting and can give you the smile of your dreams once and for all.
Bonding refers to the reshaping and shading of your teeth using a porcelain resin. This resin can be sculpted by Dr. Jaeger to eliminate gaps between teeth and to create a more natural, pleasing shape for any misshapen teeth.
Some people notice a lot of gum tissue when they smile. Gum contouring treatments utilize a gentle, soft tissue laser, which reshapes the gum line above or below your front teeth, giving you a brighter, more appealing smile.
