Tooth Colored Fillings ( Composites)

Also called a “white” filling, these dental restorations are composite resins containing a mixture of acrylic plastics and quartz fillers. These restorations differ from amalgam (silver or mercury) fillings in that they are held in place by a bonded resin rather than mechanical retention. These materials have evolved to the point that they will last as long and are as durable as sliver fillings.

Tooth Whitening

As we age our teeth become darker due to changes in the mineral structure of the enamel. Teeth can also become stained due to pigmentation from bacteria, foods we eat and the use of tobacco and coffee. There are several methods for bleaching teeth. The most common is “take home” bleaching where an oxidizing agent such as hydrogen peroxide or carbide peroxide gel is placed in a custom tray and placed over the teeth for a period of time.

Bleaching usually lasts for a few months before more needs to be applied. This depends on your life style; the foods you eat and weather you smoke or not. While bleaching can yiel d wonderful esthetic results for patients, there are some risks; increased tooth sensitivity and uneven results.

Veneers

This is a thin layer of restorative material (such as porcelain or composite) that is placed over a tooth to improve esthetics, usually on the front teeth. These restorations are bonded to the tooth with a resin-based cement.

Veneers help improve the overall look of your smile, especially if you have chipped, broken or crooked teeth. Made of durable material like resin or ceramic, veneers are bonded to the surfaces of your teeth once confirmed that the color, fit and appearance are as natural ad possible. ‘

Invisalign Teeth Straightening

Invisalign is a clear way to straighten teeth. Invisalign gradually moves your teeth through a series of custom made, removable, nearly invisible aligners. Invisalign can help improve crowded teeth or teeth with space–as well as deep bites or open bites. Having straighter teeth can help promote healthier gums, improve chewing and speech, decrease risk of wear on your teeth and create a beautiful smile.
