In the past, if you had a stain, chip, crack, or gap in your teeth, you basically just had to learn to live with it. Not so today! At Old School Dental, Dr. Staten combines the newest treatments and technology with old school craftsmanship to help his patients achieve the smiles of their dreams. He can help you overcome any flaw in just a few appointments. Want to know more about how he can improve your smile? Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
With either of our veneers treatments, we can fix/disguise a multitude of smile imperfections all at once, including:
Both of these treatments consist of fitting extremely thin coverings to the front of the teeth. Porcelain veneers are more permanent and long lasting, while Lumineers can be applied faster and changed with ease. In the end, they deliver the same result: a beautiful smile you can truly be proud of.
These restorations are actually made of 100% dental porcelain, which in addition to being extremely strong and durable, can also be shaped and shaded to resemble real enamel in almost every way (even down to how it reflects light). We primarily use them to repair teeth that show prominently when a person smiles. Thanks to Dr. Staten’s artistic touch and this material, he’ll make sure the only people who know that you’ve had dental work are you and him!
Wouldn’t it be great if your dentist could just sculpt that one problem tooth you have to perfection? With direct bonding, that’s exactly what Dr. Staten can do! Using a composite resin material matched to your enamel color, he can quickly make small stains, chips, and gaps disappear. This treatment can usually be completed in about an hour, it’s completely painless, and the results can be trusted to last for about 10 years.
Has a love for coffee, wine, tea, or tobacco left your teeth looking a bit dull and discolored lately? If so, we can help you turn up the brightness of your smile with our selection of professional-strength treatments. In office, we can dramatically whiten your teeth in less than an hour, or, we can send you home with a kit designed just for you. Whichever one you choose, you can look forward to having a set of teeth that is six, seven, or even EIGHT shades whiter!
Does your gum line cause your teeth to look short or stubby? If you have what we call a “crowded smile,” Dr. Staten can quickly fix it using our soft tissue laser. With it, he can painlessly remove excess gum tissue to unveil previously hidden dental structure. Then, he can shape your new gum line along your teeth to give your smile the perfect frame, all over the course of a single appointment.
