Professional Teeth Whitening to Brighten Your Smile

Popular beverages like red wine, coffee, and dark juices can stain your teeth over time. Dark, pigmented foods can also affect your enamel, and nicotine use can leave your smile looking dull. Pooja Hegde, DDS, offers professional teeth whitening to enhance the aesthetics of your natural smile. We provide take-home teeth whitening treatments that can quickly and efficiently restore your smile to a beautiful, natural color.

Our take-home whitening kits allow you to brighten your smile efficiently in the comfort of your home. We offer Opalescence® kits with preformed trays, and we can also provide custom trays for a better fit and more even results. You only need to come in for a quick office visit to allow our dentist to take digital impressions of your smile. After we've made your custom whitening trays, you'll come back to pick up your kit and a supply of professional-strength whitening gel.

Our team will instruct you on using the kit safely and effectively. Afterward, you can whiten your smile conveniently at your own pace. The take-home teeth whitening option is perfect for people looking to whiten their smiles over time or do quick touch-ups. The custom trays are yours to keep, so you can pick up more whitening gel as needed when you visit our office for your six-month exams.

Porcelain and Chairside Composite Veneers

cosmetic dentist in concordIf you have minor damage or deep discoloration, we offer dental veneers to ensure durable and long-lasting results. Our dentist recommends porcelain veneers for correcting deep stains, slight misalignment, unwanted gaps, and damaged or misshapen teeth.

With veneers, you can correct cosmetic imperfections and enhance your smile in just two appointments. During your first porcelain veneer appointment, we'll lightly buff the target teeth to create room for the thin porcelain shell. Your porcelain veneers are designed to feel natural and complement your smile. We'll send impressions of your teeth to a dental laboratory, where your beautiful veneers are created and contoured to fit your specifications.

You'll then come back for the second appointment when we'll cement your completed veneers in place. The thin layers of porcelain typically last for years with proper care. 

Porcelain veneers are versatile, and our dentist can craft them to your specific goals. Depending on your specific circumstance and goals, we can provide:

  • 1-2 veneers to conceal a discolored tooth
  • 1-2 veneers to restore a chipped or broken tooth
  • 1 or more veneers to correct minor misalignment
  • Up to 8 veneers to extend worn teeth
  • Up to 8 veneers for a full smile makeover

We also offer chairside composite resin veneers that we can complete in one visit. Unlike porcelain veneers that require a mold of your natural teeth, our dentist can sculpt resin veneers into the required shape. We start by buffing the enamel to allow for the placement of composite resin. Our Concord cosmetic dentist then applies a bonding agent, adds the composite resin, and finally light-cures and polishes it.

Both types of veneers offer a lifelike appearance and a noninvasive solution to cosmetic issues. If you're seeking quick, long-lasting results with a simple treatment, veneers could be your answer.

Effective Orthodontic Treatments

concord cosmetic dentistMany people believe that having a straight smile is simply a matter of aesthetics, but there are actually several health benefits to a more uniform smile. Straightening your teeth makes them easier to clean, improving oral hygiene. Additionally, a straight smile helps you bite, chew, and speak better. At our practice, we offer effective orthodontic treatments to help you achieve a straighter, healthier smile.

Our dentist offers Invisalign clear braces for responsible teens and adults. Even if you had treatment as a teen but failed to wear your retainer consistently, you can benefit from Invisalign. This subtle alternative to traditional braces offers orthodontic correction without the obtrusiveness of awkward metal wires and brackets.

Invisalign is ideal for correcting mild to moderate alignment issues, such as:

  • Unwanted gaps between teeth
  • Crooked or rotated teeth
  • Crowded or overlapping teeth
  • Mild overbite or underbite
