One of the most popular cosmetic dental procedures, teeth whitening can remove stains and discoloring while brightening your smile. At our modern office, we offer both in-office whitening and take-home teeth whitening. Both are suitable, effective, and provide you with a truly dazzling smile.

In-office: You can visit our office for faster and more professional teeth whitening results. Dr. Stead Willis uses a special gel to enhance the whiteness of your teeth leaving you with a flawless smile.

Take-home: Dr. Stead Willis offers two at-home whitening methods. One option is Opalescence On the Go whitening strips and gel, while the other is custom bleach trays filled with the Opalescence Bleaching Gel. These easy to use kits make it simple to gradually whiten your smile in the comfort of your own home.

Dr. Stead Willis is here to help guide you to the ideal whitening solution for your teeth. He’ll explain the benefits of our in-office and take-home options so you can make an informed choice.

Makeover your smile with this modern cosmetic procedure.

Whether you genetically have imperfect teeth or it is a result of wear and tear, our porcelain veneers can gift you your dream smile.

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain specifically designed to cover over your natural teeth and hide any imperfections that exist.

Veneers are custom-made to your request, which means you can adjust the size, shape, and shade of your new teeth. What’s more, the porcelain material is strong, durable, and stain-resistant.

Placing veneers can be done in just a few treatments. To begin, our cosmetic dentist prepares the teeth (if necessary) and makes impressions. He’ll use these impressions and your specifications to design your new veneers. Once ready, the veneers are placed and adjusted to make sure they fit your bite and mouth. When you feel happy, the veneers are bonded into place, and your new smile is ready.

You can then thrive as you show off your perfect smile!

In addition to our beautiful veneers, we offer porcelain crowns for an aesthetically pleasing restoration. Learn more about crowns here.

I appreciate Dr. Stead Willis' attention to detail and integrity in his work. His staff has always been courteous and attentive. and I feel very comfortable in his office. I've even dozed off in the chair a couple of times, so apparently, I feel pretty relaxed there.

Cosmetic Bonding
The ultimate smile cover up.

Do you wish you could have a beautifully aligned and stain-free smile? With cosmetic bonding that can be a reality.

Bonding relates to the art of covering over your natural teeth with a special tooth-like resin. The composite material or resin is then shaped to give you an attractive smile.

Cosmetic bonding is a non-invasive procedure and can be completed in one visit to Stead Willis DMD. During the visit, our Durham cosmetic dentist prepares your teeth and then adds layers of the special, tooth-colored material. Once the size and shape of the teeth are ready, Dr. Stead Willis will polish the material, so your teeth look beautiful and natural.

If you look for after your new teeth properly, you can enjoy a beautiful smile that maintains its brightness and beauty.
