Straightening Your Smile with Invisalign®
While there are many ways to address misaligned teeth, few are as effective, comfortable, and discreet as Invisalign. Invisalign is just as its name suggests; it is a set of invisible aligners that are custom made for your teeth.
They are designed for maximum comfort and efficiency, slowly adjusting the position of your teeth. Through 3D scanning, we will create a digital map to prepare the custom aligners. They fit inside your mouth and adjust the positioning to correct misalignment issues. These aligners are effective at fixing any of the following oral health issues:
- Overbite: An overbite is when the top set of teeth overlaps the bottom set by a significant distance. This causes complications in biting, chewing, and overall jaw strength. Invisalign can slowly adjust the top row of teeth backward to restore proper alignment.
- Underbite: Patients with underbite problems can also benefit from Invisalign. An underbite is the opposite of overbite, and the lower jaw protrudes further than the upper jaw. Invisalign can gradually adjust the lower jaw positioning to restore your smile.
- Unwanted Gaps: Invisalign is an effective treatment option for closing unwanted gaps. In as little as three months, your teeth can shift to cover these gaps and restore an attractive smile.
- Overcrowding: Crowded teeth can push others out of position and cause overlap. Invisalign can reposition crowded teeth to make them fit evenly.
Many people take for granted the importance of having straight teeth. Straight teeth make chewing more effective and decrease the accumulation of plaque between teeth. Straight teeth also give you a more confident smile.
Brighten Your Smile with Professional Teeth whitening
Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic procedures. Having whiter teeth will immediately make your smile more appealing. At Art of Smiles Dentistry, we offer both in-office and take-home whitening for your convenience.
The Zoom® in-office treatment can remove stubborn stains from your enamel. Laser heat activates the whitening gel to remove discoloration caused by dark-colored food and beverages. It is also effective at removing the staining that occurs from cigarette smoking. Zoom is a convenient in-office procedure that takes less than an hour to complete. You can also maintain white teeth for longer if you avoid consuming dark-colored beverages soon after treatment.
For those who are unable to come in for in-office whitening, we offer take-home whitening kits. Dr. Antone can create an accurate impression of your teeth and prepare a customized whitening tray. This allows you to whiten your teeth at your convenience. We also recommend the best toothpaste and mouthwashes to maintain your whitening treatment. If staining goes deep, or you have other cosmetic issues, veneers are a useful option to consider.
Porcelain veneers are thin coverings shaped to fit over a tooth. Veneers can correct chipped or cracked teeth and cover deep stains. Once applied the veneer bonds securely for a natural look and feel. Veneers can cover shape issues and restore a bright smile.
Because they mimic the appearance of natural teeth, no one will be able to tell they have been altered. Veneers can withstand daily activities such as chewing, biting, brushing, and flossing. Veneers can even correct mild spacing issues without the need for full orthodontic intervention.
Dental Implant Restorations
Missing teeth can make you feel very self-conscious about your smile. Gaps also create spaces for other teeth to shift out of position. Dr. Antone offers dental implant placement as well as implant restorations to provide a long-term, effective solution for missing teeth.
During a dental implant procedure, an artificial tooth is inserted in your jawbone to fill in for the missing space. Each implant consists of a titanium post and a porcelain crown. A crown is placed on top to match the surrounding teeth. Implants replace the root as well, preserving gum tissue and bone health.
At Art of Smiles Dentistry, we also provide implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures. Implant-supported crowns, or dentures will remain in place even when chewing tough foods and speaking. Our team will work with an implant specialist for the placement, and then we will finish your treatment with a custom restoration.
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures offer a flexible and affordable option for restoring missing teeth and a full smile. They are removable dental appliances that can be fitted into areas where teeth are missing. They are removable dental appliances that fit into areas where teeth are missing. There are several types of dentures that oral health professionals can recommend.
Complete Dentures: These prosthetics can replace a full set of missing teeth. They rest comfortably on the gums and remain in place with a special adhesive. Complete dentures come as upper and lower sets, where each set is composed of a soft acrylic base.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures can replace areas of missing teeth. They work by attaching to other natural teeth to stay fixed in place. A partial denture consists of a plastic base that adheres to the gums, and metal clasps that attach to adjacent teeth for additional support. Partial dentures hold teeth in position and prevent them from shifting out of alignment.
