Teeth Whitening

Advances in modern cosmetic dentistry have created many simple, non-invasive teeth whitening solutions. Teeth whitening is a simple, non-invasive procedure, helping to brighten your teeth and rid your smile of any stains or discolorations. Teeth whitening has helped thousands of patients feel better about their teeth, smiles, and overall appearance.

Teeth whitening has become a part of routine dental care for millions of people. It is a simple way to adjust the color of just a few, or all of your teeth. Teeth whitening is only effective when applied to natural tooth enamel; if you have crowns, implants, fillings, or other restorations, it will be necessary to consider the color and or shade of your restorations in order to match your natural teeth.

Teeth whitening usually requires two visits. During your initial visit, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate clear custom-made plastic trays that will be used during the home application. During your second appointment, the trays will be tested for proper fit, and adjusted if necessary. After the trays are filled with the whitening gel they are worn twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a period as long as two weeks, depending on the desired level of whitening.

It is important to note that some people experience some tooth sensitivity during whitening. this is normal and typically subsides shortly after you have stopped bleaching.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants

Advancements in dentistry have made dental implants the best option to replace missing teeth. Traditionally, missing teeth have been replaced with fixed bridgework or removable partial dentures with metal clips for retention. The fixed-bridge option requires grinding of the adjacent teeth in order to place the fixed bridge. Dental implants, on the other hand, can be placed without touching the adjacent teeth. Best of all, they are more natural looking and longer lasting than other replacement solutions.

A dental implant is a biocompatible substitute used to replace missing tooth roots and is usually made of titanium. Implants come in multiple shapes and sizes to ensure a proper fit for your personal needs. The implants are placed into bone and allowed to heal undisturbed while the bone heals around them. After a few months, the dental implants are used as a foundation to anchor replacement teeth. Dental implants restore lost chewing ability, make speaking clearly a breeze, improve appearance, end embarrassment, and give self-confidence to patients who need them.

White Fillings (Composite)

When teeth are damaged by decay, white fillings restore them back to their normal shape and function. If you have a tooth that requires a filling, our knowledgeable A+Dentistry dentists will remove the decayed material, clean the affected area, then fill the cavity with a white composite filling material which is custom-made to match the exact color of your teeth. This filling will help to prevent further decay by closing off any cracks where bacteria can enter and cause harm to the tooth.
