Teeth Whitening

When it comes to teeth whitening, there’s more to it than you think. Stains and discoloration on teeth take time to form and they take time to remove. However, with the right products and the right application, you could see noticeable results faster than you might think. At Valley Ridge Dental, we know that the quality of teeth whitener matters, which is why we only use products from Opalescence — a trusted and established name in the teeth whitening industry.

Enamel Microabrasion

Often paired with other teeth whitening procedures, enamel microabrasion is a great way to remove spots and severe discolorations from your teeth. While fitted tray tooth whitening is good for lightening and whitening your teeth, on the whole, enamel microabrasion targets tough beat areas to give you a brilliant smile.


Veneers are a versatile way to improve the quality and color of your smile. Through a porcelain bonding, a veneer can change the shape, size, and color of your tooth, allowing you to customize your grin, cover up a badly chipped tooth, or recolor a dead tooth. Best of all, veneers typically require very little build-up and can be applied in just a couple of visits.


Bonding is used as a baseline process in many cosmetic dentistry procedures, including veneers and crowns. However, sometimes minor fixes such a teeth gaps and small chips or wears can be handled by bonding colored resin material to your teeth in a single sitting.

Porcelain Crowns

When a tooth is severely broken or worn down, you may need a larger piece of protective porcelain for it. When this happens, a crown is typically the way to go. A properly installed crown will restore the shape, size, strength, and chewing power to your tooth.

Porcelain Bridges

In the case of replacing a tooth that just plain old isn’t there, a bridge is the best solution. By anchoring the tooth restoration on the teeth to either side of it, a bridge actually gives you a replacement “tooth” to make your smile complete once again.
