 COSMETIC DENTISTRY

COSMETIC DENTISTRY
This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.

We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.

WHITENING - INCLUDING Iveri
This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses several methods: Iveri, passive tray whitening, and professional strength white strips.

Iveri is a revolutionary teeth whitening gel consists of a solution that is safe for even the most sensitive of teeth. Carbamide Peroxide is an oxidizing agent most commonly used in whitening products. Iveri Whitening uses a concentrated blend of professional strength Carbamide Peroxide and Hydrogen Peroxide to deliver whitening results quickly. Potassium Nitrate, a key ingredient in Iveri Whitening gel, has been proven to virtually eliminate teeth sensitivity. And unlike other teeth whitening products, our gel uses Xylitol which not only sweetens the solution but more notably keeps your teeth hydrated throughout the whitening process.

In 15 minutes you will notice your teeth become 2-8 shades whiter. Now that’s something to smile about!

VENEERS
Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only done to the part of the teeth that are visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.

The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.

The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated at a dental laboratory. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In two to three weeks the veneers are back from the laboratory, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth. The laboratory fabricated veneers are usually made using porcelain or pressed ceramic, and are very esthetic.

The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.
