Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening

Our teeth naturally turn yellow as we grow older. Many people also consume certain foods and drinks like tea and coffee that can cause staining. Professional teeth whitening uses powerful peroxide-based gels to break down stains within the tooth enamel, returning your teeth to a youthful look.

Professional teeth whitening is safer and far more effective than over-the-counter whitening and is less likely to cause unwanted side effects like sensitivity. Professional teeth whitening is available in our office and at home.

Clear plastic aligners are an excellent way to straighten teeth quickly and discreetly. Many older teens and adult patients do not want the unwanted attention that comes with traditional braces. Clear aligners combine discretion with convenience, enabling you to take much better care of your teeth than while wearing braces.

Invisalign: Invisalign is a highly advanced orthodontic system that applies controlled force to just a few teeth at a time. For patients with mild to moderate orthodontic issues, it is just as effective as braces in a fraction of the time.

3M Clear Aligners: These appliances work very much like Invisalign. They are versatile enough to work with braces to correct more severe orthodontic problems.

Dental Veneers
Veneers are thin sheets of composite or porcelain material that can cover many cosmetic flaws. Rather than investing in multiple cosmetic procedures, veneers can correct their appearance simultaneously. Chipped, stained, gapped, and slightly misaligned teeth can receive veneers, creating a symmetrical, beautifully bright smile.

Cosmetic Bonding

Bonding uses composite resin material to correct many aesthetic issues, including gaps, fractures, discoloration, and exposed tooth roots. Bonding is an affordable alternative to other cosmetic procedures and lasts for years.

Microabrasion is an alternative to tooth whitening procedures. It uses fewer strong chemicals than teeth whitening and is appropriate for surface stains.

Microabrasion uses abrasive and acidic substances to remove discoloration of the outer enamel. It can remove yellow and brown spots on the teeth that come from poor oral hygiene or consuming highly pigmented foods and beverages.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cosmetic Dentistry

How long do clear aligners take to work?
Clear aligners are typically faster than braces for similar orthodontic issues. Invisalign and 3M Clarity aligners may take only 12 to 18 months to work, while braces may take up to three years.
Why is over-the-counter teeth whitening risky?
Over-the-counter whitening agents, especially those purchased online, may be too strong to use without dental supervision. They may cause extreme sensitivity or burn your gums. Whitening products from the supermarket or pharmacy are generally not dangerous but may produce slow results that are difficult to notice. You may be tempted to apply the over-the-counter products too often, creating sensitivity and dehydrating your teeth.
Which is better: composite or porcelain veneers?
Both types of veneers have advantages. Porcelain veneers last longer and are more stain-resistant than composites. Composites require fewer steps to place and are more versatile. Your dentist can help you choose which veneers will work better in your situation.
What kinds of problems can cosmetic bonding cover?
Cosmetic bonding involves applying composite resin to the teeth to correct aesthetic flaws. It can make your teeth look whiter, brighter, and better aligned. It is a useful procedure because it has so many cosmetic applications.
Should I have microabrasion or teeth whitening treatment?
Microabrasion is less invasive than teeth whitening, but it only works on surface enamel stains. Peroxide-based teeth whitening can penetrate deeper into the tooth. Dr. Marcus will help you choose the best treatment for your teeth.
