Get a picture-perfect smile with porcelain veneers from Blackhawk Dental Care in as little as two visits. During the first appointment, Dr. Adams will remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth. Next, he’ll take impressions of your teeth, so he can get perfectly customized veneers. He’ll fit you with temporary veneers, so you can begin to adjust to your smile. Once we receive your permanent veneers, he’ll bond the thin sheet of porcelain to your teeth, creating a smooth, even appearance. Porcelain veneers correct gaps, chips, cracks and other imperfections. With proper care, dental veneers are very durable and suitable for everyday use.
Minimal-Prep veneers require less removal of the enamel to bond the final veneer. We use DURAthins, which are as thin as a contact lens and just as effective as traditional veneers. DURAthins look natural, and the porcelain is artistically designed in ultra-thin layers. Veneers can erase years from your smile, giving you a more youthful look and restoring your smile. Just like traditional veneers, minimal-prep veneers are perfect for covering gaps and correcting chips and cracks. Ask us if minimal-prep veneers are right for you!
Does your smile need a lot of work? At Blackhawk Dental Care, we offer full smile redesigns for our patients who need multiple cosmetic and restorative treatments to get the smile they deserve. Our redesigns start with a consultation with Dr. Adams, where you’ll discuss exactly what you want your smile to look like. You can expect to see examples of past smile transformations and determine the right path for your treatment. A whole smile redesign may seem overwhelming, but rest assured that our team will be with you every step of the way. We’ll help transform your smile from dull and lifeless to spectacular and vibrant. Be confident every time you smile.
Sometimes you may need a specific restoration, like a dental crown, in order to complete your smile. If you don’t have enough healthy enamel available to support the restoration, we may recommend a crown lengthening treatment. If you’ve been told a restoration is not possible, crown lengthening might be a solution for you. Don’t worry though, we’ll keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout.
Do your gums dominate your smile? If so, you may be a candidate for a gum recontouring. Dr. Adams will reshape your gum tissue, exposing more of your enamel and balancing your smile. At our office, we often perform recontouring treatments with composite bonding to create a perfect aesthetic to your smile. If you suffer from periodontitis, gum recontouring can help, as it shrinks the gum pockets and makes them easier to clean. A little goes a long way with recontouring, and you’ll be amazed at how your smile can look!
Composite bonding is a cosmetic procedure which can repair broken, chipped, or cracked teeth. This technique requires a certain level of dental artistry, as a composite resin is skillfully sculpted onto the enamel and then hardened with a specialized curing light. The composite material is matched to the shade of your teeth, so the whole aesthetic is natural and beautiful. Though it’s not a solution for all cosmetic dental issues, composite bonding can be a cost-effective alternative to dental crowns or porcelain veneers.
Dr. Adams often performs recontouring procedures in conjunction with composite bonding to achieve a picturesque smile. Tooth recontouring is excellent for smoothing ridges, bumps, jagged edges, or sharp points. Patients often use this service to reshape canine teeth that are too long and create a more balanced appearance to their smile. Dr. Adams will adjust the size, shape, and length of your teeth and fix any that overlap.
Everyone wants a bright, vibrant smile, which is why teeth whitening is one of the most popular procedures. Coffee, tea, wine, tobacco, age, certain medications, and other lifestyle factors like genetics, can all cause discolorations of your teeth. Our smile whitening treatments restore luminosity and radiance to your teeth, erasing years of tarnish and dulling effects. We use KöR Deep Bleaching in our office, which penetrates the enamel to break up stains and brighten your teeth.
If you prefer a more gradual approach, we offer tray whitening from KöR and Nightwhite, which allow you to whiten in the convenience of your home. These comfortable, custom-fit trays take about 10-14 days to reach full results, but your smile will radiate. Get a bigger, brilliant smile with smile whitening treatments from Blackhawk Dental Care.
