COSMETIC DENTAL TREATMENTS
Cosmetic Dentistry is part technical skill and part artistic eye. For a Cosmetic Dental Treatment to be successful, Dr. Albik combines both requirements to produce beautiful smiles with stunning results. At El Dorado Family Dental, we utilize many Cosmetic Dental Treatments, including:
INVISALIGN TEETH STRAIGHTENING
Invisalign Teeth Straightening is one of the most popular Cosmetic Dental Treatments available in our dental office. Invisalign is a great alternative to classic metal braces for straightening your teeth. Also referred to as clear braces, Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are custom fitted by Dr. Albik. The series of clear aligners gradually shift your teeth into the desired position and alignment.
In addition to the benefit of being clear and virtually unnoticeable, the aligners are comfortable to wear and can be removed while eating or drinking. The total treatment time will vary dependent on your unique treatment plan, however most our patients achieve the desired result after about a year. Regular dental visits with Dr. Albik are done to ensure that the teeth are moving into place and straightening properly.
Teeth Whitening is a wonderful Cosmetic Dental Treatment that can restore the brightness and improve your smile. There are many reasons that your teeth’s brightness may dull over time. Drinking coffee, dark sodas, tobacco use and poor oral care can lead to discolored teeth. Thankfully, Dr. Albik can restore your white teeth with a Teeth Whitening process that uses specific chemicals to bleach the teeth.
There are two options for your Teeth Whitening Treatment. The treatment can be performed at our dental office or at home with a take-home whitening kit. Both treatment options have their benefits. The advantages of an in-office treatment include a shorter treatment time, quicker results, and the ability for Dr. Albik to control and monitor the bleaching ingredients to help prevent tooth sensitivity. The advantage of the at home whitening kit is the convince of performing the treatment when your schedule allows.
Porcelain Veneers are a Cosmetic Dental Restoration treatment that is used to conceal many common dental flaws. Dr. Albik has successfully helped patients just like you with Veneer treatments to repair small chips or cracks, improve tooth shape or size, close small spaces or gaps between teeth, and create a uniform appearance for your smile.
Dental Veneers are thin, tooth colored shells that are slipped over the front surface of the tooth structure and bonded or cemented into place. The Veneers are custom-created to your unique needs and specifications and created to blend in with the surrounding natural teeth producing a great look and feel.
TOOTH BONDING AND TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS
Tooth Bonding and Tooth Colored Fillings are a minimally invasive and cost effective Cosmetic Restoration to repair dental imperfections. Like Veneers, the composite bonding material comes in a variety of tooth colored shades to match the surrounding natural teeth. This makes bonding a great solution to repair the tooth structure from slightly chipped, discolored, or crooked teeth.
Tooth Bonding is also a great alternative to Traditional Silver Amalgam Fillings. Many patients prefer the white appearance of Tooth Colored Fillings made from composite materials since they are less noticeable than amalgam fillings. The result is the appearance of a natural tooth that blends naturally with surrounding teeth. Bonding can be used for fillings on the upper and lower jaw and for front or back teeth depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.
While less expensive than other Cosmetic Dental Restorations, bonding is more susceptible to staining and breaking than Veneers or Crowns for Teeth. Many Bonding Treatments can be completed by Dr. Albik in a single visit to our Dental Office.
DENTAL IMPLANTS AND CROWNS FOR TEETH
While not traditionally considered a Cosmetic Dental Treatment, some cases of Tooth Decay or damaged teeth may require a Dental Crown or Dental Implant. Substantial amounts of tooth decay may necessitate a Root Canal with a Dental Crown placed over the treated tooth. In some instances, a tooth extraction may be recommended with a Dental Implant placed in the jawbone to support a crown or bridge.
Like other Cosmetic Dentistry Treatments, Dental Crowns for Teeth can be created to match the surround teeth to produce a natural looking smile.
