Different Types of Cosmetic Dentistry
Invisalign and ClearCorrect
If you’ve dreaded the idea of brackets and wires on your teeth, ask our cosmetic dentist about getting or ClearCorrect. These nearly invisible aligners are designed to straighten your teeth little by little. That way, you’ll be able to safely straighten teeth and correct bite issues for a healthier smile.
Unlike traditional metal braces, ClearCorrect and Invisalign are discreet. While someone may notice your clear aligners up close, most people won’t be able to tell. This means that you’ll be able to straighten teeth without anyone having to know! Invisalign and ClearCorrect are also removable so you can continue eating your favorite foods.
We’re able to make custom whitening trays for you to use at home. During your first appointment, we’ll take impressions of your teeth to send to the lab. When you return for your next appointment, your custom whitening trays will be ready.
Custom teeth whitening trays fit much better than what you’d find over the counter. They also use a stronger bleaching solution so you can achieve dramatic results. We offer bleaching solutions in different strengths. That way, you can choose whether you want to wear your custom whitening trays for a few hours or overnight. We also offer Zoom teeth whitening in our office so you can whiten teeth by several shades in one appointment.
Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells we can bond to the fronts of teeth. Porcelain veneers can cover slight chips, cracks, stains, and other minor imperfections. To make room for your veneers, we’ll need to remove a thin layer of enamel. That way, your teeth won’t seem large or bulky with your new porcelain veneers.
We may recommend dental bonding to restore teeth with small chips, cracks, or stains. For the procedure, we mold a tooth-colored dental putty to your tooth. We then use a special light to harden the material to your tooth. Unlike other procedures, we can do teeth bonding in one visit so you can walk out of our office with your new smile.
