Learn More about Your Treatment Options
Veneers are a highly versatile procedure that can help you correct dental chips, cracks, discoloration, misalignment, and more. They consist of thin porcelain shells bonded to the front surface of the tooth. Our dentist will create a custom treatment plan and design your restorations to match seamlessly with the color and shape of your natural teeth. Unlike some procedures, veneer treatment is very fast, requiring as few as two visits to our Lakewood office. Veneers are incredibly durable and stain-resistant. With proper dental care, they should look stunning for a decade or longer.
Teeth whitening is one of the easiest and most affordable cosmetic procedures available at our Lakewood practice. Bear Creek Family Dental offers both take-home and in-office whitening treatments, allowing you to select the option that works best for your lifestyle and goals. Our dentist utilizes the Ultradent Opalescence Boost™ whitening system that is safe and comfortable even for patients with sensitive teeth. Dr. Bauer can brighten your teeth several shades in an hour-long appointment or provide custom-made whitening trays for you to wear at home at your convenience.
A low or uneven gum line can make your teeth look unhealthy and asymmetrical. Fortunately, we can remove excess tissue and straighten the gum line with laser contouring. Bear Creek Family Dental uses the highly precise Epic Pro™ diode laser from BIOLASE®, making the procedure faster, safer, and more comfortable than ever before. By sealing and sterilizing the gum tissue as it works, patients experience minimal pain and side effects. Ask our cosmetic dentist if gum contouring is right for you during your next appointment.
Dental bonding is a great option for correcting minor aesthetic flaws. Our dentist applies a composite resin to the surface of one or more teeth and carefully sculpts the material to match the shape and size of your teeth. While it is not as long-lasting as other treatments like veneers, dental bonding doesn't require any permanent alternations to your natural tooth and can be a good way to test out if you want veneers in the future. Bonding is highly affordable and can enhance everything from small chips and cracks and to gaps between your teeth.
In the past, dental fillings were made from an assortment of metals, and stood out from the color of your tooth enamel. With advances in modern dentistry, we can repair a cavity or replace an outdated metal filling with a natural-looking composite resin filling. If you currently have a cavity, don't delay treatment. A small amount of decay can develop into a significant problem that will require more expensive and invasive treatment. In a single appointment, our dentist can repair your tooth with a virtually undetectable filling and restore your dental function.
Oftentimes, patients cannot pinpoint a single procedure to address all of their dental concerns. Bear Creek Family Dental offers custom smile makeovers that combine two or more procedures into one streamlined treatment. Using techniques found in both cosmetic and restorative dentistry, a smile makeover provides comprehensive aesthetic and functional enhancement. There are several advantages to choosing a smile makeover. Combining procedures saves you time, is less expensive than having the treatments done separately, and gives you dramatic results much sooner.
Some procedures, like dental crowns, are integral to maintaining your oral health as well as the aesthetics of your teeth. Crowns can cover up a number of cosmetic imperfections, like cracks, chips, and discoloration while supporting the structure of a weakened tooth. Unlike porcelain veneers, a crown caps the entire outer layer of tooth enamel instead of just the front surface and is a better option for patients who have sustained tooth decay or need a root canal. Our dentist custom designs each dental crown to fit snugly around the tooth, protecting the structure for a decade or longer.
Sometimes a dental filling is not enough to correct a large cavity, while crown treatment is too extensive. In these situations, inlays and onlays are a great conservative solution that requires minimal changes to the natural tooth structure. Inlays and onlays are custom-designed restorations that are placed on the biting surface of a molar and within the space left by a cavity. The restorations are crafted at our boutique dental lab from enamel-colored resin or porcelain ceramic. The final results blend in seamlessly with your enamel and can strengthen your tooth for years to come.
