There’s no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, discolored, badly shaped, chipped, or crooked.
Today, a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature’s mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile. Veneers are a highly popular solution among dental patients because of their life-like tooth appearance. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) designed to cover the front side of your teeth.
To prepare for veneers, your doctor will create a unique model of your teeth. This model is sent to the dental technician to create your veneers. Before placing your new veneer, your doctor will remove a small amount of your tooth to make room for the veneer. When placed, you’ll be pleased to see that veneers look like your natural teeth and even resist staining. Though veneers are stain resistant, your doctor may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine, and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your veneer.
Are your teeth chipped or stained? Would you like to improve your smile permanently, without any painful processes? We are pleased to offer Lumineers as an alternative to traditional porcelain veneers.
Veneers provide a way to conceal stains, chips, discoloration and misaligned teeth, by covering your actual teeth with a permanent layer of tooth-colored material. You may be familiar with the conventional process of applying veneers. This generally involves shaving away a significant portion of the tooth, and requires an anesthetic shot to numb the resulting pain. In many cases, temporary veneers must be worn while the permanent veneers are manufactured in a lab. Because Lumineers are as thin as a contact lens, their application requires little to no tooth reduction, and no anesthetic is necessary. Lumineers are bonded to your teeth and set in place with a curing light. Because the process is less invasive than with traditional veneers, Lumineers patients find that they immediately enjoy their new smiles without any post-procedure discomfort or sensitivity.
Take control of your smile ask us whether Lumineers are a good choice for you. Healthy Smile for Life!
KöR Whitening is a process that is done in a dental office and uses a specially designed tray to seal the whitening product from the effects of saliva. Saliva can reduce the effectiveness of the peroxides because of naturally occurring enzymes. The product is also the first peroxide based whitening gel to be refrigerated from the time of manufacturing to the time of use. By refrigerating the gel, the natural decay of the chemicals is slowed, keeping the gel at near 100% effectiveness when ready to be used. KöR Whitening Ultra-T is especially effective for patients with teeth darken by tetracycline. KöR is also available as a cost-effective home whitening system.
Zoom Whitening is a product line manufactured by Phillips N.V. and is available as several different products, depending on the severity of the stains. The strongest product is administered as an in-office procedure over the course of up to four individual sessions, each lasting about fifteen minutes. The solution contains approximately 25% hydrogen peroxide and is activated by a special UV light. During the procedure, both your lips and gums are protected with a protective barrier.
How Does Teeth Whitening Work?
Having a smile with bright white teeth gives us a sense of confidence. Our smiles are one of the first things people notice when meeting for the first time, and a healthy, bright set of teeth is a reflection of feel-good, friendly attitude. Unfortunately, over time, teeth become stained and lose their shine. Often our natural white teeth are stained by the foods we eat, or beverages we drink. Tobacco products can further stain teeth, as can some genetic, environmental or pharmacological issues.
Teeth become stained on the outer surface of the enamel. Gradually the stains darken and get into the deeper layer of the tooth known as the dentin. The dentin is the layer of the tooth between the hard enamel surface and the pulpy interior. Dentin is made up of living cells that are porous and are naturally yellowish in color, making staining an even bigger problem because of the translucent nature of the enamel.
Whitening methods include several different approaches to reducing tooth stains. Some methods use abrasives to scrape away stains from the enamel, but do not get deep enough to affect the dentin layers. Chemical methods use a variety of chemicals to whiten teeth including hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide. These chemicals break apart releasing free radicals that break apart the carbon bonds of the stains which then lose their yellowish color.
