Teeth Whitening: Biolase (in-office) Whitening
Teeth Whitening is a common procedure in general dentistry, but mostly used in the field of cosmetic dentistry. As a person ages the adult teeth often become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, as the enamel becomes less porous. Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, foodstuffs and tobacco. Certain antibiotic medications can also lead to teeth stains or a reduction in the brilliance of the enamel.
White Fillings / Bondings:
Tooth colored fillings and old unsightly fillings can now be replaced with esthetic filling materials such as resins and porcelain fillings or crowns.
Full Porcelain Crowns:
* Actual Patient
Some dental crowns are fabricated in a manner where their full thickness is porcelain (dental ceramic). These crowns can possess a translucency that makes them the most cosmetically pleasing of all the different types of dental crowns.
Although they can be very life like in appearance the overall strength of all-porcelain dental crowns is less than other types of crowns. While they can be a good choice for front teeth, due to the intense chewing and biting that humans can generate, all-porcelain dental crowns should be considered on an individual basis for back teeth.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. The Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth from a plan devised by you and your dentist.
