Invisalign Braces - Clear Braces
Invisalign treatment consists of clear, plastic aligners that help you adjust your smile over an extended period of time. Unlike traditional braces or retainers, they don't require any wires or brackets. Instead, you receive a new tray every two weeks that will straighten your teeth little by little until they reach their ideal position. Invisalign can be worn in your everyday life without the clunkiness or discomfort of braces. Clear braces correct crooked or misaligned teeth and help promote bone and gum health.
Tooth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental teeth whitening treatments used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.
Because having whiter teeth has now become the number one aesthetic concern of most patients, there are a number of ways to whiten teeth. The most popular method is using a home tooth whitening system that will whiten teeth dramatically. Since tooth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth.
Teeth whitening is not permanent. A touch-up maybe needed every several years, and more often if you smoke, drink coffee, tea, or wine.
Dental Implants provide a safe durable replacement for missing teeth. The actual dental implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post
that is surgically placed into the jawbone. Dental implants can be single implant or support a dental prosthesis such as a bridge or dental dentures
acting as an orthodontic anchor for any such implant. An evaluation the teeth are necessary to determine if an individual is a good candidate for a
dental implant. Our dentists specialize in evaluating patient's health and working on a dental plan for any dental implants performed in our Bellevue dental office.
A dental bonding is a composite resin that is used as an alternative to amalgams and veneers.
This is an excellent cosmetic option for those patients who do not want the look of silver in their mouths and do not want the expense of veneers. Bondings can be used on teeth that are decayed, cracked, or stained.
The bonding procedure is usually completed in one visit. The first step is to remove the decayed or unsightly portion of the tooth. The tooth is then etched with a liquid or gel and a bonding agent is then applied. This will allow the composite resin to be placed in the prepared tooth.
Porcelain Dental Crowns
A dental crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Dental crowns are often needed to restore damaged,
weak or fractured tooth to its original size and shape. They are typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement.
Dental crowns can be made from various materials. Our dental office makes porcelain, ceramic,Porcelain fused to metal and Gold crowns.
