Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Do you want a straighter smile? Try Invisalign. This alternative to traditional metal braces has reinvented the orthodontic process. Invisalign utilizes a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten teeth over time. Invisalign is often heralded as a faster and more comfortable alternative to metal braces. Traditional metal braces can pinch the gum tissue surrounding teeth and often have an average treatment time that spans several years. The average time of treatment with Invisalign is twelve months or less. Patients who use Invisalign can also take clear aligners out to eat and brush their teeth, so there are no forbidden foods like popcorn or sticky candy. In addition, because the aligners used in Invisalign treatment are clear, they are less noticeable than traditional braces.
Porcelain veneers are crafted from ultra-thin translucent porcelain ceramic and are bonded to the front and sides of teeth. Because they are color-matched to teeth, porcelain veneers offer a natural look. Porcelain veneers can improve the appearance of crooked teeth, repair chipped and broken teeth, cover discolored or stained teeth, and close spaces between teeth for a more balanced smile. After you receive your custom porcelain veneers, stay away from food and beverages that typically stain teeth, like sodas, teas, coffee, and red wine. Doing this will help maintain the look of your veneers.
Tooth bonding is an economical and quick way for patients to fix damaged and discolored teeth. This option is especially popular among younger patients who do not want a permanent restoration. In addition, the resin composite material that is used to bond to teeth is long-lasting. Tooth bonding can treat discolored teeth, misalignment, cracked or chipped teeth, and gaps between teeth. This option is also a quick and easy solution to addressing the patient’s cosmetic problems.
Our office provides in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to our patients. Professional tooth whitening offers an array of benefits to patients as it lasts a long time, improves tooth health, brightens teeth, reverses the effects of aging on teeth, and can help you improve your confidence. In-office whitening includes the application of whitening gel that penetrates tooth enamel using a special light. For take-home whitening, patients are given a custom whitening tray that they can wear to whiten teeth in the comfort of their own home.
