Before and After Examples
Whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in dentistry today. This revolutionary dental technique effectively provides a fast and painless way for patients to achieve a beautiful white smile. There are several professional whitening procedures, both in office (laser whitening) and at home which can be used to enhance your smile.
Leading edge Neuromuscular Dentistry goes beyond the teeth to focus on the position of the jaw in relation to the surrounding muscle and ligaments. A misaligned jaw can result in a host of problematic symptoms including severe headaches, excessive tooth wear, joint pain and ringing in the ears to name but a few. We use high-tech equipment and jaw tracking devices to monitor jaw movements and detect bite problems. When treated to a proper jaw position, patients who exhibit these symptoms often find a lifetime of jaw pain and headaches can be resolved in just a few painless appointments.
Turn back the hands of time and restore your smile's youthful appearance. Smile rejuvenation encompasses all the necessary components of cosmetic and neuromuscular dentistry for you to achieve a beautifully youthful and healthy smile.
Composite and Porcelain
Old fashioned mercury fillings fail predictably as they corrode in your mouth. Worse yet, they inevitably crack otherwise healthy teeth as they corrode over the years. Newer, longer lasting enhanced composite or porcelain fillings are a very effective replacement for old mercury fillings.
Finally, create the smile you've always dreamed of. The goal of aesthetic dentistry is to create a rejuvenated natural smile properly proportioned to your face. With advancements in aesthetic dentistry almost anything is possible. Crooked unbalanced teeth can be immediately improved – like instant orthodontics. Teeth can be beautifully brightened with whitening systems or porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are also often utilized to fix chipped and broken teeth and enhance the appearance of your natural smile. The possibilities are endless.
Periodontal or Gum Disease can impact more than just your smile. A healthy smile is not just about healthy teeth, it's about the overall health of your mouth and your body. The bacteria associated with gum disease impacts overall physical health. Gum disease has been linked to heart disease, impaired joint health and even compromises the weight of newborns. Using advanced Ultrasonic Cleaning techniques, dentists are now able to retard bacteria growth and help the body use its own natural defenses to increase overall oral health. Lasers also allow the dentist to contour tissue to improve health or to reduce a gummy smile.
