State-of-the-Art Teeth Whitening - Gulfport, Mississippi

For a healthier looking, more vibrant smile through professional teeth whitening, Gulfport, Mississippi residents can rely on Dr. Buntyn and his team of dental care experts at The Smile Design Center. Teeth inevitably lose their natural white luster, becoming discolored and dull over time. Additionally, staining agents such as coffee, tobacco and soft drinks can accelerate this discoloration. To help reverse this process and create a brilliantly brighter smile, we provide the Zoom!® in-office teeth whitening system to our patients in Gulfport, Mississippi.

As featured on ABC’s Extreme Makeover, the Zoom!® teeth whitening system makes teeth dramatically whiter - up to 10 shades. And unlike other teeth whitening systems that require weeks or months to work and produce only limited results, with Zoom!® you can achieve a whiter, more dazzling smile in a little over an hour.

The Zoom!® teeth whitening process consists of only a few short steps. Following the application of a whitening gel, your teeth are exposed to a special light that activates the gel and allows it remove stains and discoloration. After a brief fluoride treatment, your teeth will be significantly whiter.

If you have been wanting an attractive new smile, one that will turn heads wherever you go, the Zoom!® teeth whitening system may be right for you. Please contact our office in Gulfport, Mississippi to find out today!

In addition to in-office whitening, we also provide our patients with the leading take-home teeth whitening kit. The Rembrandt® teeth whitening system can help you achieve a whiter, brighter smile in the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dr. Buntyn is committed to operating a biologically friendly dental practice. This means that he never uses mercury fillings, which could potentially harm his patients. Instead, he uses tooth-colored fillings. Made of a special composite resin, these fillings safely halt the progress of tooth decay without detracting from the natural beauty of your smile. Because they are white, tooth-colored fillings are virtually indistinguishable when used to treat cavities or replace unsightly metal fillings.

Placing a tooth-colored filling begins by first applying the composite resin in layers onto the tooth that is being treated. The resin is then hardened with a high-intensity curing light. The material is then carefully shaped to match the contour of the tooth. Finally the tooth is polished to prevent premature wear or staining.

Advances in the material and technology used to produce tooth-colored fillings have improved the durability of these restorations. Tooth-colored fillings now last as long as metal fillings in smaller cavities. If you have existing silver fillings or cavities that need filling, and you would like to have a beautiful, natural looking smile, contact the Smile Design Center today to learn more about tooth-colored fillings or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Buntyn.

Painless Dentistry Services

In addition to offering teeth whitening and tooth-colored fillings to residents of Gulfport, Mississippi, our practice utilizes advanced technology that allows us to provide corrective dentistry in a virtually pain free manner.

We proudly feature the Waterlase® HydroKinetic YSGG dental laser at our office. Both safe and effective, this technology eliminates the need for shots and drills in most cases. The Waterlase® system uses a laser energized spray of air and water to carefully remove dead and decaying tooth matter. Since the laser produces no heat or vibration, you can have a relaxing dental experience, free of the discomfort and anxiety caused by the noise of traditional drills.

The Waterlase® system can be used for root canal therapy, reshaping "gummy" smiles, and preparing cavities that need filling. And because we never use silver fillings, we are able to create healthy, aesthetically pleasing smiles in a way that does not produce discomfort.

For our patients who suffer from "dental care anxiety," we provide nitrous oxide and light medication as needed, rather than intravenous sedation, to ensure that their visits to our office are both calming and comfortable.

Please contact our friendly team at The Smile Design Center today if you would like more information on teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, or the painless dentistry services we offer at our practice in Gulfport, Mississippi.

Our Other Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Whether by themselves or in conjunction with teeth whitening or porcelain veneers as part of a complete smile makeover, our other cosmetic dentistry procedures are great for restoring the health and appearance of your teeth. Residents of Gulfport, Mississippi can trust the care and expertise of our dentist, who has been providing wonderful smiles for more than thirty years.

Dental bonding can revitalize your appearance by repairing teeth that are chipped, cracked, or discolored. The process involves covering the damaged tooth with an enamel-like material that is then sculpted and polished to give the tooth a natural look. Bonding is also an excellent way to fill gaps in between teeth to produce a more appealing smile.

Dental crowns are used to restore health and function to teeth that have become too damaged to be strengthened with fillings. Made of strong, durable porcelain, a dental crown will allow you to enjoy food and drinks again without pain while providing a natural, healthy looking replacement that is virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Dental bridges can significantly improve your smile by eliminating gaps left by missing teeth. A bridge consists of an artificial tooth bracketed by two crowns. When the crowns are placed over the teeth on either side of the gap, the artificial tooth fills in the space left by the missing tooth, resulting in a fuller, more attractive smile.

If you want to gain the confidence that comes from having a gorgeous, healthy smile, Dr. Buntyn and his fully trained team are here to help you. Please contact the Smile Design Center for more information on the cosmetic procedures we offer in the Gulfport, Mississippi area.
