Crooked teeth are a problem for a large portion of the population. Many of us have had our teeth straightened as teenagers, only to have them become crooked again as adults. This may be due to wisdom teeth coming in long after orthodontic work was completed.
Adults today have options for correcting crooked teeth, including Instant Orthodontics, a cosmetic procedure for correcting the appearance of crooked teeth.
Please read our page about Crooked Teeth to learn more about the solutions.
Chipped teeth can be painful and over time the exposed area can stain. They can also lead to decay and further damage. Accidents, ice chewing, tooth grinding, and even tongue rings are just a few of the causes.
Chipped teeth can be repaired beautifully and easily. Two of the options are porcelain veneers and dental bonding. Find out more about restoring chipped teeth.
Discoloration can be simple dulling that comes with age, or it can be deep stains caused by medications. Eating and drinking habits can contribute to early staining, and good dental hygiene is not always enough to prevent it from happening.
Dr. Walsh-Cole can restore your dazzling white smile with tooth whitening, and even has options for patients whose teeth may be more resistant to whitening.

Missing teeth can lead to more serious dental problems such as shifting teeth, decay, and gum disease, not to mention detracting from the beauty of your smile. A dental implant can permanently replace your missing tooth in form and function. It is a solution that is so beautiful and comfortable, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
