Professional teeth whitening under the supervision of a dentist is safe. The ADA recommends to have one’s teeth checked by a dentist before undergoing any whitening method. The dentist should examine the patient thoroughly: take a health and dental history (including allergies and sensitivities), observe hard and soft tissues, placement and conditions of restorations, and sometimes x-rays need to be taken to determine the nature and depth of possible irregularities.
Invisalign, is the invisible method to straighten your teeth without conventional metal braces. A custom-molded set of smooth, comfortable aligners will progressively reposition your teeth. You can simply remove the aligners before eating or cleaning. This technology is more comfortable and convenient than traditional braces. Patients do not experience the mouth abrasions caused by metal and wires.
Unlike a dental crown, porcelain dental veneers cover only a portion of the tooth, enhancing the appearance of the teeth. Porcelain dental veneers are designed to both look and act like your natural teeth, helping to correct and improve the appearance of common dental imperfections such as:
- Chips or fractures
- Uneven spacing between teeth
- Short, worn or fractured teeth
