A beautiful smile is one of the most sought after cosmetic features in the world. People from all backgrounds and professions want a bright, straight smile, and we are here to help turn that desire into reality. Whether through minor adjustments or major treatment plans, our cosmetic dentistry practice aims to improve your smile and help you build confidence in the way your teeth look.
A common request we receive is how to make a smile whiter and brighter. This is a relatively simple and quick treatment option that can be performed periodically. Certain foods and beverages, such as wine and coffee, stain the teeth and contribute to discoloration. The teeth whitening process provides a solution that lightens the shade of the teeth. Additionally, the process actually rids the teeth of plaque and tartar that tend to lead to dental problems.
Getting porcelain crowns is the best way to have a very natural looking smile. They are used when simply filling in a tooth is not an option. There are times when they decay is so bad that we just have to use a porcelain crown. We also use them with severely damaged teeth or teeth that have already had multiple fillings. Porcelain crowns are attached right to your teeth so that they can function, even when you bite something really hard! There are several types of porcelain crowns so it is important to discuss which type is best for you with your dentist.
Dental technology has advanced dental implants over time. Newer ones both look and function better than older versions. Because of that, the older implants sometimes need restoration, which could include repairs or sometimes a replacement. At Merrily Sandford, DDS & Associates, we offer this restorative dentistry service to improve the look and health of your mouth.
Root Canals Restorations
Root canals are needed when decay and bacteria spread for too long without treatment. At a certain point, this decay makes it to the pulp inside the tooth. This pulp includes nerves, therefore infection generally causes a lot of pain. Since this is happening on the inside of the tooth, you won’t necessarily see the damage. Instead, you could feel it through pain and notice other signs that include bleeding, swelling and bad breath.

Many people are unhappy with their smiles because they have cracked, broken, or decayed teeth. They don’t like how their teeth look.
We can help if you have this problem. Dental bonding is used to change the shape and size of your teeth, giving you a uniform smile that looks natural.
It can also be used on cavities and is also commonly used for receding gums. It protects the teeth that are exposed since they are not meant to be out.
If you have any questions about dental bonding or need to be seen by one of our dentists, feel free to request an appointment.
Veneers are a thin coat that a dental technician applies right over your teeth. In order to proceed with veneers, you need to have a model made of your teeth so that your veneers can be custom made to fit your mouth. We also have to remove some enamel to make them permanent.
Veneers are a more affordable option to give you a beautiful smile. They are much cheaper than crowns, but they will still help you have a smile you can be proud of. They are also better than bonding because many people complain that their bonds lose their natural-teeth color.
