Invisalign is an attractive alternative to traditional metal braces. Dr. Barnes works closely with local orthodontists to coordinate orthodonic treatment and routine dental care. Once ortho is completed, clear retainers can be made in our office to aid retention. We can also replace old, worn retainers with clear, comfortable ones.
There are many things that can cause teeth to discolor. Coffee, tea, berries, wine, and smoking are some examples of things that stain teeth. Dr. Barnes offers at-home bleaching, as well as in-office bleaching to remove stains and lighten teeth. Bleaching, “in-office or at-home”, done correctly, does not harm your teeth. Whichever route a patient chooses, “at-home or in-office”, patients will have a whiter smile and one to be proud of. If you would like to get rid of the stains on your teeth, or just want your teeth to look whiter, ask Dr. Barnes about teeth whitening and see if it is right for you.
A veneer is a thin porcelain covering that is placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. Veneers are typically used to fix gaps between teeth and to improve the appearance of teeth that are stained, shaped poorly, or out of alignment. With advances in porcelain, Dr. Barnes can enhance a patient’s smile with strong, layered porcelains that look like natural enamel. If you would like to improve the appearance of your smile, ask Dr. Barnes about porcelain veneers.
