If you are unsure of either the cost or time in a dental chair, Dr. McMurray can discuss a variety of options that may surprise you. He has options that include subtle changes all the way to major repairs, Dr. McMurray can perform a variety of tasks that will improve your smile. We can fix teeth that are discolored or stained, have been chipped, or misshapen or are even missing. Options include:
Teeth WhiteningWe can whiten and brighten your teeth, quickly and easily. There are so many whitening options available that frequently patients have asked what is best. Over the counter whitening kits are limited in the amount of peroxide they can provide, most kits are 3% peroxide, they will work, but it will take time. Dr. McMurray is able to provide whitening services in two different formats, either a prescribed customized take home kit, which contain between 3%-20% peroxide based on your needs as observed by Dr. McMurray. Prescribed take home kits can take between one and two weeks to reach your goal. The third option is done in office, under Dr. McMurray's care. With him at your chairside, he is able to apply a pretty heavy dose of peroxide on your teeth. Because he takes the time to be extra cautious of not burning your soft gum tissue, he can apply anywhere from 15%-43%. This in-office teeth whitening option takes about one hour.
Dental VeneersWe can cover up front teeth that have been broken, chipped, severely stained, are poorly placed or have gaps with the placement of dental veneers. Veneers are a thin porcelain shell that can be placed over the front face of any of your front eight teeth. Unlike a dental crown, which entirely encases a tooth, veneers only cover one side. We are able to shape the natural tooth below to hide that it is there, and decrease its size to allow the space for the veneer, and then place the veneer to hide any imperfections. Dental veneers will eventually need to be replaced but should last several years if properly cared for.
Dental BondingDr. McMurray use composite filler to make simple repairs, improving the look of your teeth. He can make these repairs for significantly less money than it would cost placing a dental crown. Dental bonding can repair chips, cracks, fill in gaps and hide discoloration with composite filling material. Though this will not be a permanent fix, it should last you several years.
