Having a bright healthy smile does more than just enhance appearance. It breeds new-found confidence allowing you show off your smile. Without a beautiful smile, you can face many issue, including low self-esteem, little confidence, and the fear of talking or smiling in front of people. You shouldn't have to feel this way, and we can help.
Due to modern enhancements in cosmetic dental technology, cosmetic treatments have become quicker, affordable, and in some cases pain free. At Boones Landing Dental Center, we offer a variety of dental services that can improve your smile, and Dr. Margaret Boone can help you determine which is right for you. Call us today at (503) 601-0610 to learn more.
Dental BondingBonding is a procedure in which we apply a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shape it, allow it to harden and polish it.
It can be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged or become stained. These are generally minor repairs, ones that can be resolved through this relatively inexpensive means rather than through a more costly dental procedure.

Dental CrownDental crowns are custom made caps that fit over the top of damaged teeth. They look just like your real teeth and restore the tooth’s ability to help you chew your food.
Dental crowns are a permanent dental prosthesis that is attached to your natural tooth with permanent dental adhesive. Crowns can be made of a variety of materials to fit the aesthetic you desire and to accommodate any budget.

Dental FillingFillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. Composite fillings are tooth-colored to blend in with the remaining natural part of the tooth.
The term composite refers to the actual filling material, which is a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium.

Dental ImplantsA dental implant is a titanium post designed to replace a missing tooth in the mouth.
The post is surgically placed into the jawbone where the tooth is missing, and provides a more permanent solution. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural, and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.

Implants & CERECNormally, after undergoing surgery for the placement of your dental implants, you would be provided with a set of temporary teeth.
Thanks to our in-office CEREC technology, we can provide you with your permanent replacement teeth the same day as your implant surgery. You leave your implant surgery with a set of beautiful, fully functioning, permanent teeth.

Inlays & OnlaysInlays and onlays are used to restore portions of the tooth, or to strengthen a tooth. They are alternatives to using fillings or a crown to restore the integrity of the tooth.
Sometimes onlays are referred to as "inside crowns." That is a good description, as it describes the strengthening process that an onlay creates for the tooth.

Teeth VeneersPorcelain veneers are very thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of your teeth.
These shells can be used to change the size, shape, color, or length of your teeth. Veneers can be used to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, worn down, chipped, broken, misaligned, or even gapped.

Teeth WhiteningThe enamel layer of your teeth is hard, heavily mineralized, and bright white.
Over time, however, small microfractures form on the surface, making it easier for your teeth to catch and hold stains and debris. We can restore the beauty of your smile by providing you with a take-home kit for you to whiten your teeth from the comfort of your home.
