Cleanings & Prevention
A good preventive dentistry program is a cooperative effort between you and our team. Prevention treatments help avoid cavities and gum disease and strengthen your natural dentition. At our practice, we provide comprehensive treatments and education so that you can maintain your best dental and overall health.
Why Should You Have Regular Exams & Cleanings?
Even if you practice immaculate oral care at home, dental exams are still necessary to keep your teeth, gums, and mouth healthy. We investigate your mouth completely and can identify and clean the areas that need it the most. You also receive a VELscope cancer screening, to help detect tissue changes or abnormalities. Keep up with your dental visits and make sure that oral cancer is found when it is most treatable in its early stages.
Although your brushing habits may be excellent, we use more advanced tools and cleanings techniques to remove harder substances from your teeth and thoroughly clean your smile. We remove plaque and tartar and catch diseases early enough to treat them.
Cleanings include fluoride varnish and foam to help prevent cavities. Our dental polish removes stains and makes your teeth look clean and fresh. Early identification of diseases can save you a lot of time, money, and future discomfort. Our friendly team of professionals provide outstanding care, so you be confident you are receiving the right guidance to maintain optimal oral health.
Comprehensive Cosmetic Dentistry
A great smile helps you express yourself freely. We use a variety of advanced techniques to shape and sculpt your smile until you're happy with the way it looks and feels. Making your teeth straighter, whiter, and brighter may require several different cosmetic procedures depending on your specific needs and goals. We work with you to craft a personalized treatment plan to improve your smile quickly and comfortably.
Digital imaging lets you see dramatic before and after photos and get excited about your treatment. Dr. Arel has a passion for cosmetic dentistry and provides a variety of treatments designed to improve and restore the aesthetics of your smile and facial features.
Is Invisalign Right for Me?
Invisalign is the right choice for you if dental alignment problems diagnosed by Dr. Arel are mild to moderate. Clear braces are commonly recommended for correcting tilted and rotated teeth, as well as unwanted gaps between teeth. This orthodontic system makes it easy to keep your teeth clean during treatment and does not limit your diet. You will see the best results with removable dental aligners if you wear them for the full recommended 22 hours per day.
Our team can help you enjoy the smile you've always wanted with invisible orthodontics. During your initial consultation, Dr. Arel evaluates the health of your smile, checking for the presence of decay or gum disease. After your examination, Dr. Arel takes impressions of your current bite and teeth alignment. We send these molds to Invisalign's laboratory for the fabrication of your trays. Each appliance in the series is made to be worn for two weeks and to shift teeth closer to their ideal position.
Zoom! Whitening for a Bright Smile
Unless you strictly avoid foods and drinks rich that stain our tooth's enamel, your teeth will likely lose their white color over time. Teeth whitening is one of the most common cosmetic dentistry treatments in America. It involves using a professional-strength gel to remove or lighten stains and give your teeth back their bright, natural shine. Teeth whitening can:
- Erase the everyday stains of your teeth's outer layers.
- Eliminate brown and yellow stains caused by medications, smoking, etc.
- Restore the color of teeth suffering from fluorosis.
Although over-the-counter teeth whitening products such as strips are available, professional teeth whitening has been proven to be more safe and effective. Whitening strips require frequent application, whereas professional whitening procedures deliver longer-lasting results. The entire teeth whitening process usually takes no more than 90 minutes. To care for whitened teeth, avoid enamel-staining drinks such as teas, coffee, and wine and use toothpaste designed for sensitive teeth.
With our Zoom! whitening treatment, your smile will look better and brighter than ever before. Along with hydrogen peroxide to whiten teeth, our professional-grade whitening also has potassium nitrate to strengthen enamel and reduce sensitivity. This powerful combination allows for faster treatment times and less dehydration and sensitivity.
Transform Your Smile with Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front side of a tooth. Veneers offer a natural white look that is very durable. Today's technology can give you the smile of your dreams by crafting each veneer to meet the size, shape, and color you desire. Veneers are perfect to combat a wide variety of problems affecting your smile's function and beauty.
Benefits of veneers include:
- Restore shine and color to stained, worn, and discolored teeth
- Hide unwanted or uneven spaces
- Cover chips and cracks
- Reshape teeth that are too big, small, or misshapen
On your first visit, we'll create an impression (mold) of your teeth that will be used to craft your custom-made veneers. During your second visit, we'll prepare your tooth by buffing and reshaping the front surface. Then a special bonding cement is used to attach the veneer onto your tooth. After receiving veneers, it is important to practice good oral hygiene, avoid foods that cause stains or using your teeth as tools. Be sure to visit us regularly for routine care.
Complete Your Treatment with Botox & Restylane
Enhancing and restoring your smile isn't always about improving the overall look of your teeth. It can also include creating more youthful and vibrant skin. Our team is committed to providing you complete smile revitalization. This includes straightening, whitening, and repairing your teeth, but we can also use Botox and Restylane to enhance your smile and the overall framework of your face.
What are Botox and Restylane?
Botox is a form of purified protein that is injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles. It has been used in dentistry to help TMJ patients with facial pain, but it can also complement cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as reducing frown lines and lip augmentation. The effects of a Botox application will last several months. Restylane is used to fill and smooth lines and wrinkles and add volume. Botox and Restylane are both prescription medications that must be administered by a trained professional. Dr. Arel provides Botox treatments to boost your cosmetic dental treatments and completely rejuvenate your look.
Restorative Care for Health & Wellness
Many people wish they could turn back to a time when their smile was not suffering from dental discomfort or imperfections. Decay and tooth loss negatively affect the aesthetics of teeth and the self-confidence of individuals. We offer the restorative treatments you need to bring back your overall dental health.
Porcelain crowns restore both function and aesthetic to damaged teeth. If advanced decay has necessitated root canal therapy, crowns help preserve the tooth, so normal chewing can continue. These restorations are custom matched to blend in with neighboring teeth.
Partial or Fixed Bridgesare an economical and convenient restoration option. Fixed bridges can prevent your teeth from shifting out of alignment, and they restore normal chewing function. They also are created with natural-looking materials and customized to match neighboring teeth.
Traditional dentures can restore a full arch of teeth on the top of our mouth, the bottom, or both. This prosthetic is removable and uses a combination of dental adhesive and natural suction to remain in place. Dentures are made of porcelain and beautifully matched to the enamel on neighboring teeth. Most functions of chewing are restored with traditional dentures.
Dental Implants are biocompatible titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone. They can replace the entire tooth structure from root to crown and be combined with a variety of prosthetics. A porcelain crown, a bridge, or dentures can be secured with implants to create a permanent restoration option. Our team will refer you to a trusted specialist for your implant placement, and then work with you to see that your restoration is comfortable and looks great. Dental implant restorations preserve the health of the jaw bone while also renewing full function and aesthetics.
