Invisalign is the ideal straightening solution for professional adults and older teens who do not want the commitment or appearance of traditional braces. These incredible, clear aligners are so subtle, they have been compared to contact lenses for your teeth, because they do their job without being noticeable! They use no sharp wire or brackets – they are made of smooth, medical-grade plastic – and yet, in most cases, they straighten any smile as effectively as traditional braces. You can even remove them to eat, brush your teeth, or for special occasions. Invisalign treatments take anywhere from six months for simpler therapy to a little over a year for more complex cases.
Veneers are an excellent option for patients who want a dramatic change in their smile. After a tooth is prepared accordingly, a thin piece of porcelain is bonded to the surface of your natural tooth. The porcelain is expertly matched to your enamel, and blends in with the rest of your teeth perfectly. Veneers are durable, and are a great choice for patients who want to fix issues in their teeth such as chips, cracks, discoloration, and gaps.
Similar to traditional veneers, minimal-prep veneers are bonded to the tooth’s surface. However, these alternatives do not require any grinding, cutting, or reshaping of the tooth in order to be placed correctly. These are a great option for patients seeking a quicker, less invasive cosmetic procedure. Our team will evaluate your specific needs and tell you everything you need to know to determine if minimal-prep veneers are right for you.
Full Mouth Restoration
Sometimes, you may need to go the distance. If the idea of a full mouth restoration overwhelms you, rest assured our team has got you covered. We’ll handle each tooth individually, checking for any that are misaligned, broken, or worn. When a majority of your teeth are in need of repair, a full mouth restoration may be the best option for you. Alleviate chronic pain caused by your teeth, eliminate headaches, and feel better about your mouth. We can restore your confidence.
If you have a tooth that is in need of restoration, but is too difficult for traditional therapies, crown lengthening may be right for you. Patients with gum disease may benefit from this procedure, as the gum pockets are reduced, making them more accessible when cleaning. Crown lengthening is an option for patients without enough healthy enamel to support other types of treatment, like a crown. We provide the service in-house, so you can feel comfortable in the office you’re familiar with.
Recontouring your gums helps your smile appear more even by increasing the amount of enamel that is exposed. Your smile will be bigger, brighter, and better defined. Gum recontouring is a permanent procedure that can balance out and revitalize your smile.
Are you afraid to smile because of chips, gaps, or other imperfections in your teeth? Don’t sweat the small stuff. Turn to composite bonding to refresh your smile. We sculpt an enamel colored composite material to match your teeth, and bond it to the surface of your tooth. The composite is then cured with a special light which blends the new material perfectly with the rest of your teeth. Typically, composite bonding procedures require little preparation of the tooth and can be completed fairly quickly.
