Invisalign Clear Aligner Trays

Invisalign is a teeth-straightening treatment that uses a series of clear, custom-made aligners to gradually move teeth into their desired position. Since the Invisalign aligners are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible when worn, making them a popular treatment for our teenage and adult patients who want to straighten their teeth without wearing metal braces. The aligners can be taken out for eating, drinking, and brushing, so you don't have to worry about food getting stuck in brackets or wires. Invisalign treatment typically takes a shorter amount of time to complete than traditional braces. Patients can finish treatment in as little as six months and can start seeing results in a matter of weeks.

Dental Veneers

Porcelain veneers are used to improve the overall appearance of your teeth. They are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can be used to alter the color, shape, size, and length of your teeth. They can also be used to close gaps between your teeth or to protect your teeth from further damage. Porcelain veneers can last many years with proper care.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a cosmetic dentistry procedure that can be used to repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth. It can also be used to close gaps in the teeth or to change the shape of your teeth. Bonding is usually completed in one visit to the dentist and does not require the removal of any tooth enamel, unlike veneers.

The bonding material is applied to the surface of the tooth and then hardened with a special light. Once the bonding material has hardened, it will be very strong and will resist staining and wear. Bonding is an excellent alternative to veneers for people who want to improve their smile without having to remove any of the natural tooth's surface.

Cosmetic Dental Treatment FAQs

Most dental insurance plans do not cover cosmetic treatments since they are considered elective. There are sometimes a few exceptions. Dental damage caused by medical conditions or injury may require cosmetic treatment and can be considered essential to insurance providers. We always suggest you check with your insurance provider to see what is and is not covered.

Yes! Every patient’s treatment plan will look different, but many times we will include multiple procedures depending on your desired results. For example, patients may be using Invisalign to straighten their smile but will want to use Opalescence whitening treatments afterward to whiten their newly straightened smile.

When patients receive their custom at-home whitening kits, we suggest using them every night for a week or two for 3-4 hours at a time. At the end of the two-week period, patients should see significant results and a brighter smile. Once desired whiteness is achieved, patients should do occasional treatments to maintain results.
