Valley Ridge Dental Can Help Create a Beautiful Smile

Teeth Whitening

With the KöR whitening products offered at our office, we can tailor a whitening system to fit any lifestyle. It is developed with a proprietary dual-activated, tri-barrel hydremide peroxide formulation and delivery system and is widely recognized as the world’s most effective teeth-whitening system, with no requirement of lights or lasers.

KöR HOME is easy to use in your home. It is usable for night or daytime whitening.

KöR MAX is a flexible most sort after offering that incorporates home whitening with a single in office whitening visit.

KöR ULTRA provides you with amazing outcomes in difficult scenarios as in fluorosis and dark geriatric straining.

KöR ULTRA-T is made to show outstanding outcomes in instances of tetracycline staining which were previously considered to be not treatable.

Enamel Microabrasion

If your teeth have white spots after orthodontic treatment or superficial brown or white staining as a result of fluorosis, enamel microabrasion can make a huge difference in the confidence you have in your smile.

With enamel microabrasion, we use a chemical and mechanical abrasion slurry to remove and whiten these spots. When you follow this procedure with whitening treatment using custom trays, the result is a smile you can be proud to wear.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Veneers are a conservative yet extremely esthetic restoration that can change the size, shape, and color of your teeth. Veneers are a thin layer of highly esthetic porcelain that is bonded to the surface of your tooth after only minimal tooth preparation. In as few as two or three appointments, you can dramatically change the look of your smile.


Bonding is the process of chemically adhering an esthetic tooth-colored resin material to your tooth. It can be used to restore worn, chipped, or decayed teeth. It can also be used to close spacing between teeth or alter the shape and contours of your teeth to achieve an esthetic result in only one appointment.

With advances in dental materials, it is now possible to provide not only esthetic, natural-looking porcelain crowns, but also incredibly durable restorations. A  crown covers the entire tooth, giving it strength and restoring its natural contours, function, and esthetics.

Replacement of a missing tooth can be done predictably with the use of a porcelain bridge. A bridge uses the teeth on both sides of the space to support the restoration.

The restoration gets its name because it provides a filler for the gap between the two teeth. The anchor teeth are crowned, and a porcelain tooth connects the two anchors.
