Teeth whitening uses chemical whiteners called “peroxides” that lift and remove stains and yellowing from your teeth, restoring your enamel to its natural, white color. We offer both in-office and take-home whitening at Urban Dental.
In-office whitening is done by Dr. Kim, and takes just a single 30-60 minute appointment to whiten your teeth by up to 5 shades or more. It’s a fantastic option if you want a brighter smile for a special occasion, like a wedding or a photoshoot.
Take-home whitening is a more gradual way of whitening your teeth, and is done in the comfort of your own home. With a set of custom whitening trays provided to you by Dr. Kim, you’ll follow her instructions, and in just 2-3 weeks, you’ll have the bright, beautiful smile you deserve.
Dental bonding uses tooth-colored dental resin to reshape and sculpt your teeth, and cover imperfections. Dr. Kim will apply the resin directly to the tooth before shaping, hardening, and trimming the resin until it looks just like a natural part of your tooth.
Enameloplasty (dental bonding & contouring) is also often used with dental bonding. In this procedure, Dr. Kim will remove some of your natural enamel with specialized tools to correct flaws like pointed and uneven teeth, or to correct minor chipping.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are designed to be a highly esthetic and minimally invasive option for cosmetic improvements. Veneers are bonded to the fronts of your teeth and are strong, versatile, and durable, making them a great long-term option for cosmetic treatment. You can completely transform your smile in just 2 appointments over 2-3 weeks.
Do you require multiple treatments to restore your smile? At Urban Dental, we’re here to help. Dr. Kim will develop a customized cosmetic makeover to address all of your issues with your smile, based on your needs, your budget, and your lifestyle.
If you have a gap in your smile due to a missing tooth, a dental implant can help make your smile beautiful once again. A dental implant is made of two parts. The implant itself is a rod of titanium, which is permanently inserted into the gum and jaw where a missing tooth used to be. This implant is then “capped” with a dental crown, restoring your tooth. Dental implants are a permanent method for restoring missing teeth, and are often used alongside cosmetic dentistry in the smile makeover process.
