Like many people across the country right now, you may be planning your summer vacation. If so, you may be knee-deep in searching the Internet for prime vacation spots, shopping for clothes and shoes, and taking care of other travel plans.

In the meantime, below we highlight some of our most popular treatments that our patients use to improve their smiles. If you have any questions about our services, don’t hesitate to ask!
Brighten a Dull Smile With Teeth Whitening
You don’t have to live with a drab, gray smile any longer! At Northwest Dental Group we offer you two great ways to whiten your teeth. For the fastest and most dramatic results, you’ll want to go with in-office treatment. In a matter of minutes, we can get your teeth several shades whiter. Walk out with a clean, white smile in one visit!
If time isn’t a factor, then you may want to consider at-home whitening treatment. You’ll receive custom-fit whitening trays and a concentrated solution you can use whenever you want – while watching TV, reading, or even taking a bubble bath! In days (not weeks), you’ll have the white smile you’ve dreamed about.
Plus, with either type of whitening treatment, you’ll always have our team available to answer any questions you have.
Hide Smile Flaws With Teeth Veneers
Dental veneers are one of the best treatments we offer for repairing teeth flaws. In fact, veneers treatment is so dramatic that it is often referred to as “instant orthodontics.” Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material that bond to your teeth to hide gaps, wear, tear, cracks, chips, pits, and fractures.
Lumineers veneers work best for many of our patients. These innovative restorations are super-thin, meaning that we usually have to remove very little, if any, tooth enamel to make room for them. They are available in a variety of shades, shapes, and translucencies to give you a beautiful, even new smile.
One additional benefit to veneers treatment is that it usually takes just two appointments to get your new smile!
Dental Bonding Repairs Minor Smile Damage
Your teeth may not require veneers. In fact, our dentist may be able to use a sturdy material known as composite resin to repair them. This is the same material that we use for our tooth-colored fillings, so you can rest assured it will last for many years without any special care or maintenance.
We’ll carefully sculpt the composite into place to repair teeth that are damaged, gapped, badly stained, or worn. When the material looks exactly the way it should, we’ll use a special light that instantly hardens and cures it. Your teeth will look good as new after only one easy visit. Vacation here you come!
Tame Your Gums With Gum Reshaping
If your gums are too prominent when you smile (known as a “gummy smile”), then our gum reshaping treatment can get them under control. With this procedure, our dentist will gently remove excess gum tissue to balance out your teeth-to-gum ratio.
Others will then notice your beautiful teeth, rather than your gums, and you’ll feel more confident not just on your vacation, but forever! There’s no sense in putting up with too much gum showing!
Crown lengthening, a similar procedure, allows more of the crown, the white part, of your teeth to show. Shorter teeth will appear longer, healthier, and more attractive.
