Cosmetic Dental Treatments
Do you want a more balanced smile? Get straighter teeth with Invisalign. This alternative to traditional metal braces has reinvented the orthodontic process. Invisalign utilizes a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually straighten teeth over time. Invisalign is often heralded as a faster and more comfortable alternative to metal braces.
Traditional metal braces can pinch the gum tissue surrounding teeth and often have an average treatment time that spans several years. The average time of treatment with Invisalign is twelve months or less. Patients who use Invisalign can also take clear aligners out to eat and brush their teeth, so there are no forbidden foods like popcorn or sticky candy.
In addition, because the aligners used in Invisalign treatment are clear, they are less noticeable than traditional braces.
Porcelain veneers are crafted from ultra-thin translucent porcelain ceramic and are bonded to the front and sides of teeth. Because they are color-matched to teeth, porcelain veneers offer a natural look.
Porcelain veneers can:
- Improve the appearance of crooked teeth
- Repair chipped and broken teeth
- Cover discolored or stained teeth that do not pose health risks
- Close spaces between teeth for a more balanced smile
After you receive your custom porcelain veneers, stay away from food and beverages that typically stain teeth, like sodas, teas, coffee, and red wine. Doing this will help maintain the look of your veneers.
Tooth bonding is an economical and quick way for patients to fix damaged and discolored teeth. This option is especially popular among younger patients who do not want a permanent restoration. In addition, the resin composite material that is used to bond to teeth is long-lasting. Tooth bonding can treat discolored teeth, misalignment, cracked or chipped teeth, and gaps between teeth. This cosmetic option is also a quick and easy solution to addressing patient’s cosmetic problems.
Treat stained or yellowed teeth with in-office Zoom! teeth whitening. Dr. Catanzano uses bleaching gel and a laser to brighten teeth quickly and comfortably. Professional tooth whitening not only brightens teeth but is long-lasting and improves tooth health. Zoom! teeth whitening can also reverse the effects of aging on teeth. Patients who receive Zoom! treatment are often more motivated to maintain their smiles.
