Does your dull smile make you want to hide your teeth behind your hand when you talk? If so, you'll be happy to hear that professional teeth whitening can successfully get rid of stains caused by smoking, aging, and consuming dark-colored foods and beverages, leaving your teeth several shades whiter! Whitening can be accomplished through two methods: an hour appointment in-office, or at home with a dentist-provided whitening kit.
Dental crowns restore the normal shape and height of broken teeth, as well as protect cracked teeth from breaking. Crowns also improve your appearance by concealing discolorations, lengthening short teeth, and making oddly shaped teeth look more uniform.
Using a system of clear aligner trays to gradually realign teeth over time, Invisalign is a popular orthodontic option that is used to straighten smiles in a discreet fashion. Each removable tray is worn for approximately two weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series. You'll wear these trays for 22 hours per day, taking them out to whevener it's time to eat or clean your teeth.
Dental implants replace missing teeth from the roots to the crowns. During the first step in the implant process, titanium posts are added to your jawbone, replacing your natural tooth roots. These posts then gradually bond to your jawbone before being topped with dental crowns. With proper care, your implants can last for your entire life!
