Many patients visit our office each year who wish they had straighter teeth, but their schedule, professional image, or discomfort has kept them from seeking traditional orthodontic treatment with metal bracket and wire braces. Luckily for these patients, we offer a unique alternative solution – Invisalign. The alignment tray orthodontic system allows patients to gently shift teeth into their ideal position over the course of about a year with less frequent, shorter checkup appointments which is great for busy patients. Additionally, the clear plastic aligners are virtually invisible to the naked eye, meaning Invisalign is a discreet way to achieve your smile goals. Best of all, patients don’t need to make dramatic changes to their diet and oral hygiene routines. Simply remove the alignment trays during meals and while cleaning teeth and replace them after. Invisalign orthodontics is effective in treating a number of more advanced alignment concerns including over, under, and crossbite.
Porcelain veneers are thin sheaths of porcelain that attach to the front surfaces of teeth. These high quality cosmetic solutions are effective in concealing the majority of smile flaws including chips, cracks, stains, and gaps. The placement procedure is fast and minimally invasive. The entire treatment takes place over two short appointments. During the initial visit, a small amount of enamel is removed from the surface of teeth. We then capture digital impressions of the prepared teeth that are sent to our dental lab where a custom porcelain veneer is crafted. Finally, we place a temporary veneer to protect teeth until the custom restoration is completed. Once we receive the final veneer from the lab, patients return to exchange the temporary for the custom porcelain veneer.
As part of our ongoing dedication to provide a wide variety of treatment options that exceed even the highest patient expectations, we offer cosmetically flawless, metal-free crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. These all-ceramic restorations not only restore the full shape and strength of patients’ smiles, they also look completely natural. Tooth restorations are available in a number of materials and each of them has its own unique set of advantages and disadvantages. Gold offers the most durable and least abrasive option, but it is also the least natural in appearance. Porcelain bonded to metal looks more natural, but it is more abrasive and the color darkens as the porcelain wears down over time. All-ceramic restorations look completely flawless even as they begin to wear, and they’re the only option effective for patients with allergies or sensitivity to metal.
A stroll down the oral hygiene aisle of your local pharmacy will make it abundantly clear that teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services. There are countless whitening toothpastes, mouthwashes, strips, and gels all claiming to provide brilliantly white results. Unfortunately, these products are not usually able to deliver on these promises. Professional teeth whitening from Smiles by Martin actually provides predictable results up to ten shades brighter. The difference is in the higher dosages of active whitening agents, and the custom application trays that prevent saliva from seeping in and neutralizing the whitener. Over the course of two weeks of daily application, patients are able to achieve the bright, beautiful smile of their dreams.
