Our Smile Experts Will Make the Teeth of Your Dreams a Reality
Our dental care always focuses on two main purposes: to restore the functionality of your teeth and enhance their appearance. If your smile doesn’t meet your aesthetic goals or has lost its luster, we have access to the top technology and the most qualified staff to beautify your smile.
A dull, stained smile can hurt your confidence and make you hesitant to showcase your once beautiful smile. While many people have brilliant, white teeth in childhood, your diet, high-tannin beverages, smoking, and poor dental hygiene habits can make your smile yellow and lackluster over time. We provide professional teeth whitening services that are effective at targeting stains and helping you achieve a brilliant smile that stands out.
Your Options for Professional Teeth Whitening:
In-Office Whitening: With in-office whitening, you’ll come into our office and your dentist will discuss your goals with you, discussing the desired shade and brightness of your teeth. We’ll place a barrier around your gums to protect them from irritation and use Opalescence Boost or Sinsational Smile for a quick, pain-free teeth whitening session that brightens your smile in about an hour.
At-Home Trays: At-home whitening trays are best offered through a dentist using professional-strength whitening products and custom take-home trays. First, we’ll take impressions of your mouth to create whitening trays that are designed specifically for your mouth and leaves just enough room for the whitening solution to cover your teeth. We’ll provide you with Opalescence whitening gel, which you can apply at a rate that is most comfortable for you.
Porcelain veneers are a popular solution for achieving a full smile transformation. With this cosmetic treatment, we can strengthen and beautify your smile in as little as one visit using thin pieces of porcelain that cover your natural teeth. Veneers are often used to cover up chips, discoloration, tooth gaps, and even crooked teeth.
The Benefits of Our Veneer Process:
Porcelain Material: We use porcelain for our veneers, as opposed to the composite materials sometimes used for dental bonding. Porcelain is the most beautiful and durable option. It looks exactly like your natural teeth, doesn’t stain, and can withstand a great deal of force.
Little to No Prep Time: Traditional veneers often require a dentist to severely alter the surface of your natural tooth to help the porcelain stick. With our process, we’ll make as few alterations to your tooth as possible.
Instant Results: With patients who are good candidates, we can place veneers on your teeth in only one visit. The traditional process for veneers can require three or four visits to fully install.
Did you know you can see your Health Centered Dentistry dentist to straighten your teeth and align your jaw? We use Invisalign or Clear Correct braces to discreetly move your teeth into a more desirable position. We’ll make a model of your teeth using advanced 3D scanning technology, and we’ll use these digital impressions to create a series of aligner trays designed to gradually shift your teeth. You’ll wear each set for a couple of weeks for at least 20-22 hours a day before moving to the next tray in the series.
The Benefits of Clear Aligners for Teeth Straightening:
Discreet and Metal Free: Clear aligners are clear, and most people won’t even be able to tell you’re wearing them. This is a great alternative to metal braces for children, teens, and adults who will follow the treatment protocol.
Comfortable and Removable: Clear aligners aren’t poky like metal braces, and they’re generally less comfortable when worn consistently. Additionally, aligners can be removed, so you can eat, drink, and brush however you like.
Effective for Most Orthodontic Treatment: Many common orthodontic problems, including small tooth gaps, crooked teeth, a poor bite, and overcrowding, can be treated with clear aligners.
Dental fillings are used to repair cavities in the teeth. A cavity is essentially a small hole created by dental decay. Fillings are designed to fill in this space and prevent the decay from spreading.
An Overview of Our Policy on Dental Fillings:
Composite Tooth Fillings: Amalgam fillings contain mercury and other metals that people can be sensitive or allergic to. To avoid the harmful effects these fillings can have on your whole-body health, our dentists only use biocompatible composite fillings.
Amalgam Removal: If you have amalgam fillings that you’d like removed, our dentists are experts in safe removal for both our staff and patients. We use the IAOMT Certified Filling Removal Protocol, which is a trusted technique for avoiding mercury exposure.
Natural Looking: Composite fillings are designed to blend in with the appearance of your natural teeth. We use a light curing tool to bond your filling to the tooth, which restores function almost immediately.
