Dental bonding is one of the simplest and least expensive procedures we offer, and it also happens to be extremely versatile. The technique utilizes a composite resin material, like the type used in tooth-colored fillings, to cover a variety of flaws: cracks, chips, stains, and pits. It can even close gaps between the teeth and disguise slightly crooked teeth.
The material is applied to the tooth, sculpted into the desired shape, and hardened with a special light. After final trimming and shaping, the resin is polished so the sheen matches that of your natural teeth.
If you’ve tried drugstore whitening products, you may have discovered the hard way that they just don’t work well. That’s because they don’t use custom-made trays and the whitening solutions have much lower concentrations of active ingredient than our professional products.
At Edgewood Dental Care, we offer three types of highly effective whitening procedures for our patients.
- Our KoR whitening system bleaches away even deep stains, lightening your teeth by as much as 16 shades. After getting your custom-fitted trays and gel from our office, you will whiten your teeth at home while you sleep. We will have you come in for one quick progress check, and you should have the results you want in about two weeks.
- Laser deep bleaching is an in-office procedure in which we apply a powerful whitening solution and activate it with a laser for fast and dramatic results.
- We offer Zoom! In-office whitening, which will lighten your smile by as much as eight shades in just 45 minutes.
When you smile, do you see more gum than teeth? If you have a “gummy smile” that bothers you, consider coming to Edgewood Dental Care for laser gum reshaping. Our special LANAP dental laser enables us to painlessly remove gum tissue and reshape your gumline, giving you a smile that’s in perfect balance. The technique is minimally invasive and quick to heal.
If you want to go all out for a dazzling Hollywood Smile, consider veneers. The veneers at Edgewood Dental Care are constructed out of super-thin, ultra-strong porcelain. A veneer is a shell or sheath that’s permanently adhered to the fronts of the teeth. It covers chips, cracks, stains, gaps, and all variety of dental flaws.
Your veneers will be custom-made using impressions of your teeth. The hue will be perfectly matched to your natural tooth color. We will need to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth for a proper fit. Once placed, your veneers can last decades with good care.
While considered cosmetic, veneers have the added benefit of strengthening teeth.
Teeth recontouring is a subtle cosmetic technique that involves contouring the outer layer of the teeth, or enamel, to remove flaws or change the tooth shape. The procedure is fast, requiring just one dental visit, and delivers immediate results. Anesthesia is generally not required. Teeth recontouring is great for the following issues:
- Adjusting tooth length or size
- Changing tooth shape
- Buffing out chips, pits, and bulges
- Resculpting oddly shaped teeth
Sometimes, one procedure is not enough to give you the smile you want. At Edgewood Dental Care, we can help you create a custom smile plan of two or more procedures called a smile makeover. Which techniques are included in your smile makeover will depend on your dental flaws, your goals, and your budget.
Your smile makeover may even include orthodontics, such as Invisalign.
Before you commit, you will be able to see what your new smile will look like. We will create a digital mockup and, from that, a wax model. Once you’ve signed off on the plan, our scheduling team will work with you to set up your appointments.
