Chips, gaps, and stains on the teeth can often be beautifully restored with cosmetic dental bonding. A durable, tooth-colored resin is applied to the affected tooth, then sculpted for the most natural-looking results. A special light is used to harden the resin, and it is polished for the finishing touch. Cosmetic bonding is a tried-and-true dental procedure that can be very effective for minor teeth imperfections that may not require porcelain veneers or other treatments to achieve the desired results.

Dental bridges can often be very effective teeth replacement options for patients with one or more missing teeth in a single area along the gum. Composed of one or more artificial teeth supported by two porcelain crowns on each surrounding tooth, dental bridges are custom-designed for the best possible fit and most natural-looking appearance. Unlike traditional dentures, there is little to no potential that they will move or slip along the gums. Dental bridges can improve speaking and chewing, in addition to resolving cosmetic issues caused by missing teeth.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays can prevent bacterial invasion from occurring in the grooves and crevices of the back teeth. Composed of strong, tooth-colored material, inlays and onlays are applied to the surfaces of these teeth to stave off cavities and decay, helping to reinforce the teeth and reduce the risk of developing problems that can require major dental work down the road. Inlays and onlays can also be used to improve teeth affected by fractures and small cracks. Designed to blend in with the natural color of your teeth, these effective treatments can be placed in a single office visit.
Invisalign® is a very discreet way to straighten misaligned teeth for a beautiful new smile. These clear plastic teeth aligners are removable for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, and they do not involve metal brackets or wires. With Invisalign®, you can straighten your teeth without others noticing!
True Smile Lift
Utilizing the latest in orthodontic and cosmetic technology, Dr. Willardsen has invented the innovative, non-surgical procedure called the True Smile Lift. This advanced process, involving four different treatments, extends beyond the scope of conventional dentistry.
Laser Gum Therapy
Many people suffer from excessive or uneven amounts of gum tissue exposure when they smile. This condition can detract from a great looking smile. With the technology available today, a ”gummy smile” is no longer an obstacle for achieving an outstanding new you.
To correct a gummy smile, True Dentistry reshapes the look of your gum tissue using the laser like an artist’s brush. The laser vaporizes the unwanted tissue with little or no anesthetic. In cases of periodontal or poor oral health conditions, the laser is used to remove tissue that traps bacteria around the teeth. Oral lesions or ulcers may also be treated with the laser to eliminate pain.
After the treatment, you can return to work or regular activities immediately, while full recovery takes less than a few days.
Porcelain Crowns - Same Day Restorations
Porcelain dental crowns can restore both the function and appearance of teeth affected by severe decay and damage. Designed to cover the entire tooth, a dental crown significantly enhances the strength of the tooth and gives it protection and support. Crowns are commonly utilized in dental implant procedures, root canal therapy, dental bridge treatments, to support a large filling, to restore chips or cracks, and to protect weak teeth from fracturing. With our E4D CAD/CAM same-day restoration technology, Dr. Willardsen can create a customized dental crown in just one office visit. The crown is color-matched to blend in naturally with surrounding teeth, and the results typically last for decades.
Do you have teeth affected by chips, gaps, discoloration, or misalignment? Porcelain dental veneers are thin, custom-designed sheaths that cover only the visible portion of the tooth. They look like your natural teeth and can last for decades, offering very effective improvement of some of the most common dental imperfections.
Professional teeth whitening can lighten the color of your teeth by several shades for a brighter, whiter smile. Dr. Willardsen offers both Zoom® in-office whitening procedures and at-home teeth whitening kits.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Silver fillings and metal crowns are a thing of the past with new advances in technology. True Dentistry offers restorations that not only restore tooth function but maintain the integrity of the look and form of the tooth as well. Porcelain and composite materials have evolved so much that their strength and longevity rival that of traditional metal options. These materials enable us to make your smile look as natural as possible. With tooth-colored fillings, there is no mercury necessary, and you will therefore not have a noticeable metallic appearance to teeth that are being treated for cavities. Tooth-colored fillings not only result in a more natural appearance, but they also eliminate the health and environmental risks of using mercury-based dental materials.
