Tooth Whitening

Our tooth whitening treatments are a fast, safe, and affordable way to instantly improve and brighten your teeth, and who doesn’t love a sparkling smile? It’s a fact of life – teeth inevitably stain, discolor and become dull. Tooth whitening can correct these problems by removing the stains that accumulate in the pores of your teeth.

We offer professional tooth whitening services that can be performed either in our office or at home, depending on your particular needs.

  • In-office Professional Tooth Whitening – With the professional ZOOM! Tooth Whitening system, you can have a brighter and younger-looking smile in just about an hour. This is a popular option for those with busy lifestyles who are looking for immediate and long-lasting results.
  • At-home Professional Tooth Whitening – Using impressions of your mouth and teeth, we prepare special custom-fitted trays. You then receive a tooth whitening program designed just for you. The process is completed in the comfort of your own home, with supervision by our dentists.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are a painless and easy way to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Veneers can correct teeth that are broken, chipped, discolored, crooked, or misshapen. Made of porcelain, the thin, semi-translucent veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth. They are durable, stain-resistant, and natural looking.

Common Questions About Invisalign

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a proven method for straightening teeth using a series of nearly undetectable, custom-made, clear plastic aligners. These trays are sometimes referred to as “invisible braces.” Invisalign can correct bite alignment, straighten tooth irregularities, and improve your smile and profile, while keeping your teeth healthy.

How does Invisalign work?
Invisalign uses 3-D computer imaging to map your entire treatment and create your unique series of clear trays, each of which is produced with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Your Invisalign trays are custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and Dr. McDill. You wear each set of trays for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each tray with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little, week by week, until they have straightened to the final desired position.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Because Invisalign doesn’t involve metal wires or food restrictions, it can be an excellent alternative to traditional braces, as well as the perfect way to straighten teeth without having to make a significant lifestyle change. With Invisalign, you can also view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start, so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

How long with the total treatment take?
Your Invisalign treatment time will be determined by Dr. McDill, based on your specific needs. Keeping that in mind, total treatment time averages between 9 and 15 months, though it will vary from person to person.

Tooth-Colored (Composite) Fillings

Tooth-colored fillings are the most versatile and effective way to restore the beauty of your smile. Though we don’t suggest replacing your older silver fillings purely for looks, when they do fail, we recommend using a tooth-colored composite.
