Anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth is considered Cosmetic Dentistry. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth mostly remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look.
We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, veneers, smile design, re-contouring of the shape of the teeth, bonding, and all ceramic/ porcelain crowns.
This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses several methods, including passive take home tray whitening and in office professional whitening.
The Tray Method involves having impressions taken from which we fabricate custom vinyl trays. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for 3 hours, or overnight. The entire process takes 2 weeks of daily use. Some difficult staining may take longer. The tray method is recommended for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take several months of use to see significant color improvement. For maintenance of whitened teeth, the trays should be used every 6 months for a few days.
If you prefer your teeth to be immediately whitened, our chair-side whitening system uses proprietary technology to whiten your teeth in a little over an hour while you relax at your dentist’s office. It’s ideal for anyone who wants immediate results. Our whitening gel’s active ingredient is Carbamide Peroxide. The two components are mixed together and activated at chair-side. This causes oxygen and hydrogen peroxide to be released. The hydrogen peroxide enters the enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substance while keeping the structure of the tooth unchanged.
