Cosmetic Solutions From Your Dentist

Welcome back to the Oregon City Family Dentistry blog!

We hope you are finding this information to be valuable to you and your family. And if you are looking for a family-friendly dentist in Oregon City, we hope that you will pay us a visit in-person.

Our goal is to keep your mouth healthy and your smile looking its very best at all times. Now that the holidays are approaching, we thought it might be nice to talk about some ways in which you could enhance your smile through cosmetic dentistry before you had to visit with friends, families, and co-workers all up close and personal.

A consultation will be in order before we can really get started, but here are some of our current cosmetic solutions that you can be thinking about:

Professional Teeth Whitening

Your smile is too important to trust to a store-bought kit. Our professional whitening system will brighten any of your teeth that are discolored or stained, without harming them.

So, what does whitening involve?

When you come in to our Oregon City dental office, a mold is taken of your teeth so that custom trays can be built for you to bleach at home with prescription strength formula.

This is an easy and effective solution!


Bonding is a technique in which tooth-colored materials are actually bonded to your tooth’s surface in accordance with your needs.

Why would you need bonding?

Bonding can reliably improve the appearance of any teeth that are chipped, broken, cracked, stained, or have spaces between them.

We’ll know from your consultation if this is the way to go.

Enamel Shaping

Enamel shaping works by removing or contouring enamel to reconfigure the appearance of your teeth, for the better.

The process, which often is combined with bonding, is usually quick and comfortable, and the results can be seen immediately.

We’ll go over specifics if it seems like something you could benefit from.


Veneers have become a popular solution for filling in the spaces between your teeth and repairing any teeth that are chipped, permanently stained, oddly shaped, or a bit crooked looking.

They are extremely versatile as a cosmetic fix.

Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells that are thin enough to cover the front of teeth to improve your overall esthetic appearance.

Will they work for you?

We hope so!

Our thorough examination of your teeth and bite is what will help us decide if you are a good candidate for veneers.

Adult Orthodontics

Whether you realize it or not, braces are not just for teens! Everyone deserves a better smile. And, with modern technology, there are options for adult braces that avoid filling your mouth with metal wires and brackets.

If, during your exam, we discover that your teeth are severely crowded, crooked, or do not meet properly, we will refer you to an orthodontist rather than selling you a solution that does not meet your real needs.
