Whitening and Bleaching
Keeping your teeth at their whitest can be a lot harder than it sounds. Due to daily staining of teeth from all the coffee, wine, smoking, and other foods, even with proper maintainance, leaves teeth a little lackluster. Teeth whitening can be an excellent way of restoring of natural teeth color, even making them whiter than natural color if that is your preference.
A tray whitening system is used to whiten your teeth. It is comprised of two steps: first and impression of your teeth is take, then with the impression custom whitening trays are crafted which can be used over and over. For the second step, you take a whitening gel and put in the gel for short periods of time over a few days. The entire process can result in whitening of smile up to four – eight shades!
Another method of whitening of teeth that we provide is called ZOOM!. ZOOM! is a chairside whitening product which uses a combination of safe whitening gel and low intensity light which activates the gel. The effective combination can whiten you teeth to six-ten shade whiter in about an hour!
This service has been offered by us not only because patients who take better care of their teeth are less apt to get cavities, and require major restorative procedure done, but also because active professionals proud of their smile take better care of their teeth.
New studies also link poor oral health to increased risk of several different types of cancer, stroke and heart disease. Your mouth acts as the gateway to your body as it not only sees the food you eat, drink and air we breathe but it also contains capillaries which are in direct contact with your blood supply. Thus poor oral hygiene can have detrimental effect on the rest of your body.
Veneers are very thin ceramic shell covering you existing tooth structure and can be an excellent way to design and reshape your entire mouth. You can fix the look of issues like staining, cracked teeth, spaces, misaligned teeth, chipped teeth, and many others by placing new veneers on your teeth.
The process of placing veneers can take up to two to three visits. During the first visit, the new shape and look accomplished by placing veneers is going to be discussed. Once a plan is made, the teeth are carefully prepared for placing new veneers. After this process, an impression of the newly prepared teeth is taken and sent to the laboratory for fabrication of final product. Our laboratory only utilizes the highest standard for fabrication in all of our work. This process can take between ten to fourteen days. We will provide a beautiful temporary solution for you to wear while the new veneers are being fabricated.
After the finalization of the veneers, we will try our best to make sure that the new veneers feel just like your natural teeth, and bond the veneers in to place in order to ensure that you can enjoy your smile for a very long time.
