Invisalign®

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is the innovative way to get straight teeth without all the pain and fuss. You can have the perfect smile without using metal braces that require constant wire tightening and visible brackets. Invisalign® takes a state-of-the-art approach to straightening teeth, using custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. Virtually indistinguishable, Invisalign® aligners are made of strong, clear plastic that gradually guide your teeth into perfect alignment. Customized Invisalign® aligners are designed from tooth impressions made to easily slide directly over your teeth. These aligners are customarily worn full-time (except when eating or drinking) for 12-48 months, which is not any longer than wearing conventional metal braces. The aligners are then changed every two weeks as your teeth move into place. You’ll have a great smile with very little interference to your daily life as well as a tooth straightening experience with comfort and convenience. You can smile with confidence because the best part about it is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth!
Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain Veneers

 

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored medical-grade ceramic materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Porcelain veneers are your answer for an immediate smile transformation. They are individually crafted for each patient, and closely resemble the appearance of natural dental enamel. We use porcelain veneers for a number of cosmetic corrections, from teeth whitening to orthodontic adjustments. Thanks to their lifelike appearance and wide array of functions, porcelain veneers rank among the most trusted and popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry. Using them we can correct tooth discoloration, worn down teeth, chipped or broken teeth, crooked or uneven or irregularly shaped teeth, and gaps between teeth. Porcelain veneers create a natural looking smile, which can resist the effects of coffee, and tea stains as well as cigarette smoke. As it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth, they are the solution for a brighter, perfect, long lasting smile.

Lumineers

Lumineers

 

If you are looking for a veneer option that has minimal preparation and is less invasive, we recommend lumineers. Lumineers are a popular alternative for both patients and dentists that are looking for a simpler tooth preservation procedure. Lumineers do not require us to grind, cut or file down your tooth structure for proper placement. They are adhesively bonded to the front of your teeth. Lumineers are unique in that they are very thin and because of this they require very little or no tooth reduction as well as shots. They are also semitransparent, allowing them to copy the natural appearance of enamel. Once placed, there is no tooth sensitivity or placement discomfort, which means the veneers look and feel natural from the moment they are put on. With Lumineers you can eat and drink anything you want with confidence because they are applied in the most durable way possible. It is a painless procedure. As they are ultra-thin, Lumineers can be applied seamlessly over your teeth to deliver a natural looking smile, which is why Lumineers are the #1 patient-requested veneer system in the world.

Zoom Teeth Whitening

Zoom Teeth Whitening

Zoom is a tooth whitening procedure used widely across the world to eliminate the discoloration of enamel and dentin. The Zoom in-office whitening process uses the Zoom Advanced Power Chairside Lamp, said to accelerate the whitening process, to activate 25% of hydrogen peroxide. As the hydrogen peroxide is broken down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to whiten the stained substances, leaving the structure of the tooth unchanged. The entire procedure takes less than an hour. It begins with a short preparation followed by the dentist applying the Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel, which works together with the Zoom light to penetrate the teeth and break up the stains and discoloration. The gel remains in place for 15 minutes while the light is activated. During this time, you can relax, watch TV or listen to music. The gel is applied for three 15-minute sessions of light activation, for a total treatment time of 45 minutes. The Zoom teeth whitening procedure is long lasting. Pain is reduced through the use of the Zoom light technology, which has minimal heat, thereby eliminating sensitivity and discomfort.

Composite Bonding

Composite Bonding

If your teeth are chipped, have gaps in-between them, stained, discolored, slightly crooked or misshapen, then composite bonding is the ideal and affordable solution for you. Composite Bonding is among the easiest and least invasive of all the cosmetic dental procedures. Although direct composite veneers generally require minimal preparations, the artistic skill and precision of the dentist you choose will determine the exact manner in which your direct composite veneers are created. We use putty stents based on an impression of the patient’s teeth and a model of their desired smile to guide them when placing the composite. This helps ensure a satisfactory result. A putty-like composite resin is placed in stages on the natural surface of the tooth, then shaped and sculpted to suit the patient’s natural tooth. We then use a high intensity curing light to harden that layer of composite. Lastly, we create an appropriate finish to ensure that the bonded resin does not dislodge or cause tooth sensitivity. The great thing is that composite bonding can often be accomplished in one office visit, which is very convenient. It is easily repairable, very natural in appearance, quick and painless.

Juvéderm®

Juvéderm®

JUVÉDERM® is the first smooth consistency gel formulation and only hyaluronic acid dermal filler. It is made of natural materials that bind with the water within your skin to lift it & make it firm. The gel is injected into areas of facial tissue where moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds occur to temporarily add volume to the skin. JUVÉDERM® treatment is an easy and instant cosmetic enhancement that gives you a refreshed look. It can be used for a variety of purposes, including enhancing your lips to make them appear fuller & less lined around the edges, helping to erase facial lines & to generally improve your facial contours. It smoothes wrinkles and restores volume – reversing the signs of aging. It can also be used to enhance facial features such as your lips and cheeks for added fullness and definition with a natural look.
BOTOX®

BOTOX®

 

Now recognized for its instant, wrinkle-alleviating effects, BOTOX is best for treating facial lines that have been caused by constant muscle movement. Examples of these include ‘frown lines’ between the eyebrows and ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes. BOTOX is injected into the area being treated and causes the muscles to relax, which means existing lines soften considerably and potential or future lines can be prevented.
