At-home tooth whitening
You may be quite happy with the size and alignment of your teeth, but dentist-supervised tooth whitening gives you the dazzling smile you always wanted. Tooth whitening is safe, effective, and long-lasting. Dr. Tiernan trusts the Opalescence tooth whitening system.
Your Opalescence® home-whitening kit includes a special tray that is customized to fit over your teeth, as well as powerful, prescription-strength whitening gel, which is inserted into the tray before you wear it. Dr. Tiernan gives you detailed instructions about how long you should wear the tray each day, and the gel will not transfer to your gums. Opalescence can provide results after just one night, and within a week you can expect a dramatic improvement, leaving you with a bright, white smile.
When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth can cause you to chew differently and may also cause mouth pain. And, as your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by Dr. Tiernan, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent (meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist) and are a long-term restorative solution to your damaged smile.
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Dr. Tiernan uses a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth, and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural-looking teeth in both shape and color.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been removed from the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger restoration. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. However, with new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings, resulting in a longer-lasting, brighter, whiter smile.
Bonding refers to the placement of tooth-colored resin to correct chipped and broken teeth, discolored teeth and in some cases, space between teeth. Bonding is generally considered more conservative than veneers or other cosmetic dentistry. The benefits of bonding include the ability to maintain the natural structure of the tooth and the ability to color and sculpt the resin to create natural looking teeth. Like a natural tooth, the resin may stain with the use of coffee or other staining foods.
“Dr.Tiernan and his staff are not only exceptionally friendly, but highly trained in their profession. They put me at complete ease with getting two implants in my lower jaw. The experience was unexpectedly easy and practically pain free. My 11 year old daughter also prefers Dr.Tiernan over the fancy kids dentist office around town with all the bells and whistles. I highly recommend this practice!”Tracy M

Have the Smile
You've always wanted.
We all want a healthy, confident smile, but crooked, misaligned teeth can impact that confidence. In fact, misalignment in teeth can lead not only to lowered self-esteem, but in some cases to difficulty chewing or speaking—not to mention day-to-day discomfort.
