WHITENING - INCLUDING "Zoom!"

                                        

This is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses several methods: Zoom! and passive tray whitening.

Zoom! is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. It's safe effective and FAST, very fast. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. The convenience of Zoom! in comparison to days of using strips or wearing trays makes it the perfect choice for the busy individual. The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The clinician then applies the proprietary Zoom! whitening gel that is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. A fluoride treatment completes the procedure. You'll be amazed with the results. In most cases, teeth get even whiter the first few days after the procedure. Trays with gel are recommended afterward for maximum whitening and maintenance.

The tray method involves having impressions taken from which laboratory fabricated custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 3 hours or overnight. The entire process takes 3-4 weeks of daily use. Three different strengths of gel may be used, however the higher the strength the greater the likelihood of reactions or tooth sensitivity. The tray method is recommended for badly stained teeth, such as tetracycline staining, and it may take several months of use to see significant color improvement. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays should be used every several months.

The end results whether using trays at home or doing Zoom! is the same.
The cost of the tray method is about half compared to Zoom! and there is usually less post-treatment sensitivity.                      


INVISALIGN 

Invisalign straightens your teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible custom-molded aligners. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth with results you'll notice sooner than you think. The course of treatment involves changing aligners approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. And unlike braces, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. You can goto www.invisilign.com for more information.

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.


 

 MOUTH GUARD

 

 

A mouthguard (also known as a mouth protector, mouth piece, gumshield or nightguard ) is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums. Mouthguards are most often used to prevent injury in contact sports, as a treatment for bruxism or TMD, or as part of certain dental procedures, such as tooth bleaching.


 NIGHT GUARD

 A night guard is a simple and affordable solution to protectect your teeth and jaw from the damaging effects of bruxism (clenching & grinding). A night guard is a custom-made horseshoe-shaped (or retainer-like), plastic, appliance with shallow borders. It is designed to keep the upper and lower teeth from touching, and can be worn on either the top or bottom teeth. When properly made, a night guard can help reduce clenching, grinding, and TMJ problems by helping to relax the muscles in the jaw. Severe clenching and grinding (bruxism) can cause jaw pain, tense muscles, headaches, and excessive wear on the teeth.


SNORE GUARD

                    

Custom fabricated dental device that is worn at night. This device moves the lower jaw into a forward position allowing increased air-flow and preventing small tissue vibrations,  therefore eliminating snoring.
