Which feature do you notice first when you are meeting someone? If you are like most people, chances are good that you notice their smile. Does this make you feel uncomfortable? Are you concerned about what people might be thinking when they see your smile?
A healthy, attractive smile can make other people smile along with you, but a smile with stained, crooked, or chipped teeth or visible dental work can cause people to make unfair judgments about you.
Fortunately, we can help you fix the things you don’t like about your smile. If your teeth are stained, we can discuss whitening techniques, and we’re also happy to discuss veneers and tooth-colored composites to help fix teeth with chips and other cosmetic damage. If you have metal fillings or crowns, we can replace your aging dental work with composites and all-porcelain crowns.
Professional teeth whitening is one of the simplest ways to make big changes to your smile. Foods, drinks, and even some medications can cause staining to your teeth, which can dull your smile and even make you look older.
While teeth whitening kits are available over the counter, professional kits offer customized care for faster and more even results. This customization also helps to protect the soft tissues of your mouth from the bleaching product. If you have sensitive teeth, don’t worry. Many professional kits have an added desensitizing ingredient, making these kits effective and comfortable for just about everybody.

Veneers can help to solve a range of cosmetic concerns. These are just a few of the improvements veneers can make in your smile:
- Whitening teeth that are resistant to staining
- Repairing chips and damage to the enamel
- Elongating teeth that are eroded or too short
- Widening teeth to fill in gaps
Porcelain veneers are designed to be translucent so that your natural tooth surface can show through. This effect makes the veneers look like natural teeth, which means that nobody ever needs to know the secret behind your flawless smile!
Different types of veneers are available, and Dr. Rhandawa will discuss your options with you.
Tooth-colored composite fillings are a new type of filling that can effectively repair cavities and other damage to your teeth without using metal. Composites have a number of advantages over the old metal fillings:
- Composite fillings blend in perfectly with the natural shade of your teeth.
- Composites bond to your tooth from the inside, strengthening and supporting your teeth and making them less likely to fall out than metal fillings.
- Unlike metal fillings, composites don’t expand and contract with changes in temperatures.
Our office can fill any new cavities with tooth-colored composite resin fillings, and we can also replace old metal fillings that are either starting to fail or are in a conspicuous location.
