At your first appointment, to make sure what smile you want and how much treatment you will need to accomplish your desired smile, we first perform a Complimentary Smile Evaluation where you tell us what you don’t like about your smile and what you want to correct. Dr. Bridger will look at your teeth, their sizes, lengths, arrangement, colors, gaps, rotations, bucks, tip-ins, the midline, and balance. We will study your face, the color of your hair, your bone structure, lip line, how many teeth show, how much your gums show, and if they are even.

  • Crowns are made from a variety of materials including metal and porcelain, and each material has benefits that lend it to being used in certain situations. Most metal crowns are made of gold, palladium or base metal alloys. Before applying the crown, the dentist will generally need to file down or shape the tooth. A strong adhesive is then applied to keep the crown in place.
  • Lumineers are ultra thin custom made porcelain coverings for your teeth. Unlike veneers, there are no injections, no (or minimal) drilling, and no discomfort. They are reversible so you have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain. Transforming your smile with Lumineers takes only two visits. During your first visit a mold will be taken of your teeth. You and your dentist will choose the right shape and shade for your new teeth. On your second visit, your custom designed Lumineers are checked for fit and then painlessly attached to your teeth.
  • Veneers are thin, semi-transparent tooth-shaped “shells” that are custom-made of porcelain. They are permanently bonded to your natural teeth which are located in your “smile zone” to enhance their shape, color, length or size. Porcelain veneers can fix gaps between teeth and/or improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, misshapen, or misaligned.
  • Snap-On-Smile – Have a celebrity smile without the red carpet price. Not everyone can afford a traditional “Hollywood Smile”. Snap-On-Smile, also referred to as Snap-On-Teeth, is an affordable, removable, stunningly white and natural looking option. Only YOU will know you’re wearing it.
