Tooth enamel is harder than bone. It works to protect the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue that comprise the pulp in each tooth’s center. Below the enamel of each tooth are the dentin and cementum layers. Like enamel, these layers are hard and work to protect the soft, non-calcified tissue in the pulp chamber.
If your smile is less than perfect, dental veneers may be the best solution. These thin, tooth-colored restorations are placed over the front of teeth, enabling them to produce a strong, healthy and beautiful appearance to teeth that have been impacted by:
Opalescence Boost teeth whitening is a safe, comfortable and effective way to brighten your smile. This in-office tooth whitening treatment takes only one hour to perform and can lighten your teeth several shades in that time.
Malocclusion is the misalignment of teeth. It may present as:
- Open bite
- Tooth crowding
- Crooked presentation
- Gaps and spaces
The most common treatment for malocclusion is braces – often placed during childhood or adolescence to address the problem before the jaw hardens and teeth become more difficult to move.
A facelift is a surgical procedure during which incisions are made next to or behind the ears, allowing underlying tissue and muscle to be manipulated and lifted into a firmer and more youthful position. The typical facelift costs around $7,500 and can produce a tighter and more lifted look, but it cannot add volume to areas of the face that have become sunken-in or hollowed due to aging.
There are a number of different tooth whitening options and cost is very much dependent on which type you choose. In-office services – like Phillips Zoom! – typically start around $500 and go up in cost depending on the number of treatments needed and the severity of your tooth stains. This option is fast and effective but can be incredibly pricey to maintain as continued results often require several visits a year.

For some, this means sticking to commitments, becoming more present, or engaging in new activities, but self-improvement needn’t be sweepingly emotional or excessively difficult.
