Bonding:

Sometimes the cost of porcelain restorations can be a limiting factor to many patients that want to improve their smile. In many cases bonding is a viable solution to change the shape, size or even the color of a tooth. Advances in dental bonding allow Dr. Gatti or Dr. Purcell to fuse a tooth colored composite resin material to your existing enamel. Most of the time this can be done without the use of any anesthetics, since there is very little prep done to the natural tooth and the entire procedure can be completed in a single visit.

Teeth Whitening:

The most common Cosmetic Dental procedure that patients ask for in our practice is tooth whitening. This is a safe way to get a bright, white, vibrant smile. Depending on your time and budget we offer 3 methods of whitening for you to choose from. Results and treatment time vary. There are a few factors that may affect the length of your whiteness results. Things like genetics, diet, age, some medications, and certain habits (like smoking) can shorten the length of the whitening. Crowns, bridges, and tooth colored or composite fillings/bonding will not whiten. Keep in mind that No whitening system gives permanent results and you may require regular maintenance treatments or “touch ups” to keep your smile bright.

ZOOM Whitening:

Chair side whitening or ZOOM whitening is typically the fastest way of whitening your teeth if you are in a crunch for time. A patient may require from 1-3 sessions to get as white as they wish. There are techniques to getting the most of your whitening session that separates good results from great results, so using the same system from one office to the next may not yield the same results. Many patients combine chair side whitening (ZOOM) with a take home system for maintenance.

Take Home #1:

Taken home custom whitening trays- this is the option most patients choose, who have a little extra time to get the results they want. It usually requires 2-3 weeks of whitening with trays to reach the results obtained with one session of chair side whitening or ZOOM method. The process involves dental impressions to make molds of your teeth. A reservoir is created on the models of your teeth to hold the right amount of whitening gel against your teeth and trays are created from the molds. You simply place a small amount of whitening gel into the molds and wear for an hour a day. Many patients have tried using clear orthodontics retainers with poor results. This is because there is no reservoir to hold the gel. Many patients choose to start their whitening process with a single session of chair side whitening to get an immediate boost, and then continue to whiten at home with this method. You can also purchase refill gel syringes and use the same trays for years.

Take Home #2:

We offer Opalescence to go as another option for taken home whitening. This is the least expensive way to whiten your teeth. This is a disposable and a 1 time use tray. You will receive ten upper and ten lower trays to place in your mouth once a day for 10 days- discarding each tray as you use them.

Professional Teeth Cleaning

Even if you brush and floss your teeth faith fully, it is still important to have your teeth cleaned on a regular basis. Professional cleanings aren't just for looks alone. Although they do make your teeth feel clean ,smooth and look a lot brighter, they are also done to help prevent decay,gum disease, and to check the health of the oral tissue.
Overtime your teeth tend to build up a layer of plaque( a sticky, bacteria-rich film) and hard deposits(called tartar or calculus) that are very difficult to remove with out the use of a special instrument. When these deposits are allowed to remain on the tooth surface or sometimes below the gumline, they provide an ideal condition for the bacteria to grow. The acids produced by some bacterias causes the tooth to decay (cavity)and/or gum disease, ( bone loss) also know as periodontal disease. If left untreated this inflamation and infection of the gums can lead to health issues or even in rare cases, death.

A Requirement for Good Oral Health

Most people don't feel any noticeable discomfort during dental cleanings; some even report they enjoy the experience — especially the dramatic results when it's done! If you haven't had a cleaning in a while, however, it may take you a few moments to get used to getting your teeth cleaned. If you experience any discomfort, however, it may be possible to apply a topical numbing gel or another type of anesthetic.
If your gums are irritated due to bacterial buildup, they may become sore or bleed slightly during the cleaning. It may be possible to prevent this from occuring in the future with oral hygiene measures you can perform at home (such as improved flossing techniques or special mouthrinses); it might also indicate that you need more frequent in-office cleanings. This type of regular maintenance will help you avoid more involved dental procedures down the road — and it will give you the best chance of keeping your teeth for life!

Porcelain Crown and Veneers

If you don't love the appearance of your smile, it's time to make a change. A Smile is one of the most recognizable attributes a person has and it is something we look at each and every day. For that reason, you should love your smile and be proud to show it off. Illness, injury, and a variety of other things can lead to dental issues that may impact the way you feel about your smile. Crowns or Veneers are one way you can improve your dental health or smile.

Cerec Single Visit Crown:

What if you could get a crown in one visit and not have to worry about the horrible tasting impression and the temporary crown would you do it? Of course you would! We offer the CEREC process to our patients. CEREC is a computer CAD/CAM system that will create your new dental crown in around 2 hours. No messy impressions, no temporaries, and no additional appointments. CEREC uses 3D cameras and sophisticated software to virtually create a new crown from very high strength and completely metal- free ceramics to replace broken or worn enamel. . The ceramic used by our office has the closest physical properties to natural tooth structure of any other modern dental material, making it very biocompatible and you'll be less likely to experience failures which may lead to future crown replacement. The new ceramic crown is then fused permanently to your tooth using high tech bonding system.
You will walk in with a broken tooth and walk out ready to eat your next meal almost immediately. Saving you the bad experience and saving the tooth!

Porcelain Veneers:

Dental veneers are the most conservative way to completely reshape and revitalize a smile. Depending on the case, some veneers require very little to prepare the tooth. Typically a very thin layer of the enamel is shaved away from the front of the teeth and replaced with a lustrous porcelain veneer that is bonded to each tooth. We will consider all of the features of a Smile Design to create a smile that is bright, beautiful and natural looking. We want people to comment on how beautiful your smile is, not how white your veneers are.
