Dental Implants

Dental implants improve more than just smiles. They have been proven to restore some of the most essential functions of life. Implants can help eating, talking, laughing and smiling come naturally once again. We offer osseointegration and traditional implants and can help determine which is right for you.

Teeth Whitening

Professional teeth whitening is a safe, effective way to brilliantly brighten your smile. It's also perhaps the most economical cosmetic dental procedure. Depending on the whitening method, results can be dramatic: in-office whitening, for example, can lighten teeth 3 to 8 shades in a single hour. At Gateway Dental, we offer both in-office whitening and professional-grade Crest White Strips.

Before any whitening process, we give patients a complete oral exam to ensure discoloration is natural and not a result of a dental condition in need of treatment. If you have any questions about which whitening method would be best for you, give us a call and schedule a consultation. We will help you through every step to a bright smile.

Professional Whitening Methods                                                                                                                                                                                                Professional whitening utilizes high-concentration bleaching gels that are not available over the counter.

In-Office Teeth Whitening                                                                                                                                                                                                     

This technique offers the fastest results with the most powerful whitening solutions available. First, gums and tooth-root surfaces are covered with a protective barrier to ensure your safety. A thin plastic device known as a retractor holds your lips and cheeks away from your teeth as we apply a professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel, which sits on teeth for about an hour. When the gel is removed, the results are immediately obvious.

Professional Crest White Strips
Patients play a more active role in this method in whitening their own teeth at home. Professional Crest White Strips available from Gateway Dental are equal to four over-the-counter Crest Strips. This process is easy to use and only takes a few weeks to achieve the desired level of whiteness.

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are a straightforward way to create a beautiful smile. Veneers are wafer-thin coverings adhered to the surface of the tooth, creating a natural-looking finish to correct a variety of cosmetic dental concerns. Veneers are an effective way to permanently improve the appearance of chipped or misshapen teeth, stained teeth, or even fill gaps between teeth in certain instances.

The benefits of veneers are long-lasting and less invasive than a crown or a cap. If you want to explore your options for a whiter, more confident smile, set an appointment with us today.

To prepare your teeth for their new coverings, we will remove a small amount of enamel and make a mold of your teeth. From this, we'll custom-form your veneers, focusing on the precise shape and shade. At your next visit we'll adhere the veneers to your affected teeth, adjusting to achieve the perfect fit.

Veneers are not for everyone. Before you get a set of veneers we will take you through a complete exam to explore all your options.
