Cosmetic Dentistry Tailored to Your Aesthetic Goals
Porcelain veneers can dramatically alter your appearance in just two office visits. These shells of porcelain attach to the front of your teeth. They can conceal a number of issues, including cracks, chips, worn edges, severe stains, misshapen teeth, and gaps in your smile. To place veneers, Dr. Hacker will trim away a minimal amount of enamel. Then he will take impressions of your teeth. Within ten days, lab technicians will use these impressions to fabricate beautiful, custom veneers.
LUMINEERS® are very similar to traditional veneers, but they are thinner. Thanks to their smaller size, Dr. Hacker will need to remove very little enamel, if any, before placing the porcelain shells. This means that treatment is reversible. You will still retain full dental function, even if you decide not to replace your LUMINEERS®. However, because the porcelain is thinner, this treatment is not suitable for all patients. At your initial consultation, Dr. Hacker will help you select the right treatment for your aesthetic goals.
Teeth whitening can dramatically improve the appearance of your smile. Dr. Hacker proudly offers both in-office and at-home treatment, and he will help you select the right type for your needs. Our in-office treatment, Zoom2®, can lighten your teeth by up to eight shades in a single appointment. DayWhite® and NightWhite®, our at-home treatments, offer similar results. We can also combine in-office and at-home treatments to help you maintain your whiter smile for years to come.
Dental bonding uses composite resin to conceal imperfections, such as chips, cracks, stains, and irregularly shaped teeth. Dr. Hacker will carefully select the shade of resin that most closely matches your natural teeth. Then he will lightly etch your teeth to create a stronger bonding surface. After he applies the resin, he will sculpt and polish the material for a completely natural look. If you desire the effects of porcelain veneers, but you are on a budget, bonding may be an optimal solution.
Perhaps you want to completely transform your smile and correct a range of cosmetic issues. If so, a smile makeover may be the right option for you. You can choose two or more cosmetic treatments to improve the appearance of your smile. You may also benefit from additional procedures, such as laser gum reshaping or dental crowns. Dr. Hacker will help you select the optimal procedures, and he will create a unique treatment plan, tailored to your goals.
