Dr. Foote provides a number of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures, including porcelain veneers, resin bonding, tooth whitening and Invisalign orthodontics.
Porcelain veneers offer a dramatic way to improve your smile. Veneers are custom-made porcelain “shells” that are placed over the teeth. Applying porcelain veneers involves some preparation of the tooth, and the process takes about 3-4 weeks to complete.
Resin bonding can be an extremely conservative solution for closing gaps and “resurfacing” teeth, and can dramatically improve appearance in a short period of time. In most cases, little or no preparation of the tooth is required.
Professional Tooth Whitening
Dr. Foote’s professional tooth whitening services are designed to give you the beautiful smile youve always wanted. We evaluate your current tooth color and customize the whitening treatments to give you the results you want. We focus on giving you the fastest, safest and most powerful whitening available.
Missing teeth can affect your chewing, speaking and appearance. Dr. Foote works to give patients secure and stable implants that look and feel like normal teeth. An implant can be thought of as a man-made root that is placed into the jaw. A replacement tooth is then mounted on the metal “root.” Since implants require surgery, patients should be in good general health, have healthy gums, and be committed to thorough oral hygiene on a daily basis.Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, do not involve preparation of adjacent teeth and minimize shrinkage of the jaw bone over time.
Dr. Foote utilizes the Invisalign system to straighten teeth in order to improve one’s appearance and function. Invisalign is a virtually invisible approach to orthodontics, without the need for conventional metal hardware.
