Are stained, chipped, cracked, oddly spaced, or misaligned teeth keeping you from smiling with total confidence? At the Newark, DE dental office of Dr. Bond and Dr. Ganfield, we offer a range of cosmetic solutions that can help patients like you turn your smile around. During a consultation, we’ll assess your needs and discuss personal oral health goals with you. Based on this appointment, we can create a completely customized plan for revitalizing your smile.
Maintaining a clean, bright smile over the years may seem easy, but it can be quite difficult. Even diligent oral hygiene is often no match for the ill effects of too much coffee, soda, wine, or smoking. If you’re unhappy with your stained or discolored look, teeth whitening could be the perfect solution for restoring your smile’s former glory.
Once we've determined together that whitening is the best cosmetic option for your smile, we’ll take a detailed impression of your teeth so that we can have customized whitening trays made. Once you’ve received them, along with a high-grade bleaching gel, all you have to do is wear both together for a predetermined period over a handful of days. This can result in teeth that are up to 8 shades whiter!
Porcelain veneers can transform certain teeth or even your entire smile into the look of your dreams! They're precisely crafted from sturdy, tooth-colored materials and made thin enough so that they can fit comfortably and securely over your natural teeth, seamlessly hiding gaps, cracks, chips, discoloration, and other flaws.
The veneers process usually requires around two to three appointments at White Clay Dental Associates. During the first visit, we'll discuss your goals for your new smile and any changes you’d like made concerning the length or shape of your teeth. Once we have this valuable information, we can prepare your natural teeth and take detailed impressions of them that will be sent to a trusted, high-quality laboratory. It will take them no more than 14 days to carefully craft the finished veneer, and during that time, we can provide you with a very similar and beautiful temporary veneer. Once the permanent veneer arrives, we’ll place it and make any adjustments you need so that it feels as comfortable and lifelike as possible.
Have you dreamed about achieving a straighter smile but just can’t commit to the idea of wearing metal braces for months or even years of your life? Dr. Bond and Dr. Ganfield understand your hesitation – that’s why they’re proud to offer image-friendly orthodontic alternatives to traditional braces! Both Invisalign® Clear Braces and Six Month Smiles® offer a transformative treatment process that’s faster, more comfortable, and much more subtle, helping patients correct crooked teeth, noticeable gaps, and more without the strain.
If you want to improve the appearance of your smile, cosmetic bonding offers a great, one-visit solution. We simply use a tooth-colored filling material to fill in gaps between teeth, cover deep set stains, or otherwise improve the appearance of your smile. For patients with just a few minor cosmetic flaws, bonding may be the ideal solution.
