Today there are many innovations in cosmetic dentistry trends. Some of the cosmetic procedures that are widely used include teeth whitening that bleaches stains caused by food and drink, dental veneers that are for severe tooth discoloration, and Invisalign braces made of clear plastic.
When you visit your Garden City Cosmetic Dentist, Dr. Amit Sood, at The Gentle Dentist, talk to him about the various procedures he performs. Teeth whitening can be done in different ways, but Dr. Sood has found the Discus Dental system to be excellent. Models are made of your upper and lower jaw. These are then made into trays that are filled with a whitening gel and placed over your teeth. You wear the trays in the morning and at night and typically will see brighter teeth within the first two weeks of wearing them.
Porcelain veneers are made up of several thin ceramic layers that are expertly fitted and placed over your natural teeth to improve your appearance. When a veneer is applied by our Garden City cosmetic dentist, a very small amount of tooth enamel is removed so that the veneer can fit more snugly in the mouth. Veneers are a good choice for teeth that are chipped or fractured or have stains that have not responded to whitening.
Veneers are individually sculpted for each patient and look exactly like your natural teeth. They also resist stains from coffee, tea, and tobacco. Your natural teeth remain intact and only a small amount of tooth enamel is removed so that the veneer will fit well. It may take about a week for them to be manufactured in a lab so there is some waiting time before they can be applied. Since some tooth enamel is removed, veneers are permanent and cannot be reversed. Talk to Dr. Sood at The Gentle Dentist to be certain this is the procedure for you.
Invisalign treatment consists of a series of braces worn in succession that are transparent, movable, and removable. They provide the same results as traditional metal braces but are virtually invisible. They can also be removed for teeth cleaning. In addition to being transparent they are removable. You can eat and drink without having to worry about food sticking to metal wires. If you are concerned about crowded or crooked teeth and tooth spacing, your Garden City cosmetic dentist, Dr. Amit Sood, at The Gentle Dentist will be happy to discuss this procedure with you.
There is nothing like the sunshine and warmth of a beautiful smile. Discuss teeth whitening, veneers, and Invisalign braces with your Garden City cosmetic dentist at The Gentle Dentist. Dr. Sood will give you a complete examination and recommend the appropriate treatment. Make the appointment today!
