We enjoy helping patients achieve their best smile. We like to spend time discussing with our patients their particular esthetic desires and developing a unique treatment plan for each patient. We can do this through teeth whitening, Invisalign, Bioclear, Veneers, anterior composite restorations and Botox.
We offer three options to teeth whitening at our office. Sometimes a combination of these options work the best for people.
Opalescence take home trays- this is a great way to whiten your teeth. These are take home, disposable trays that you wear to whiten your teeth. This is a relatively inexpensive way to get the white teeth that you want but it does take ~As short as 15 minutes per set of trays.
These are custom whitening trays that you can use for years to come. You just have to purchase more whitening solution when you need it. These can be used for flouride trays if needed as well.
Zoom Whitening System
This is our in office whitening system. It is the simplest and most effective whitening solution. It usually takes about 2-3 hours depending on your teeth. A patient relaxes in the chair while we place a whitening solution on the teeth and shine and blue light to accelerate the process. This process will get your teeth as white as possible in one sitting, and then month maintenance will keep them looking bright. At home trays are included.
Bioclear is a new approach to tooth restoration. It allows us to shape teeth with composite material to an ideal contour without removing your natural tooth structure. Esthetic and dramatic results are often possible with a same-day appointment.
"Black Triangles" are a relatively new topic surrounding an age-old problem We are hearing from patients more frequently about the unwanted space or "black triangles" that can develop along the gum line in between teeth. These dark spaces are what the human eye is drawn to, unfortunately.
There are several reasons that black triangles form. The first is simply the shape of some teeth. Another common cause is gum recession. If the gums surrounding your teeth begin to recede due to gum disease or bite-related problems, you may notice black triangles beginning to appear. If left untreated, they will grow larger over time.
The Bioclear Matrix System offers an alternative to veneers or crowns, providing unparalleled results. Bioclear is a minimally invasive process that will close black triangles, dramatically improving and brightening your smile. It will also improve your ability to keep your teeth clean, positively impacting the health of your teeth, gums, and the supporting jawbone.
Below are some case studies on patients that have had outstanding results in our office. They first completed Invisalign to create the ideal spacing and bite, then proceeded with Bioclear to optimize tooth shaping and esthetics.
Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable aligners that shift your teeth over time - a much more esthetic and comfortable option as compared to braces. Invisalign is made with 3D computer imaging technology, diagnostic photographs, and x-rays, and has been proven highly effective.
How Does Invisalign Work?
First, we will work with you to develop a treatment plan. Then, you will approve your custom Clincheck© and aligner therapy begins. Each aligner is worn for approximately two weeks, and is removed only for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. As your teeth shift your aligner is replaced with the next in the series.
The average treatment time varies, but is typically between six months and two years. Patients come in every six weeks so we can track their progress and issue a new set of aligners.
There are many benefits to choosing Invisalign over traditional braces:
The aligners are clear, removable, and much more esthetically pleasing than braces.
No dietary restrictions.
Aligners are comfortable; no sharp edges or cut lips!
Brushing and flossing are a breeze.
Appointments are quicker, less frequent, and painless.
