This can be anything done to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Anyone who is unhappy with their smile can have it fixed. The upper teeth show, usually, only when smiling, while the lower teeth remain hidden. This is reversed when talking, with the upper teeth remaining hidden while the lower teeth show. The color, alignment, spacing as well as regularity of the teeth are the characteristics that give the overall appearance. Any of these can be repaired to give a stunning look to the mouth.
We offer a wide variety of cosmetic options. Some of these options are whitening, smile design, recontouring of the shape of the teeth, veneers, bonding, and all ceramic/porcelain crowns.
The custom tray method involves having impressions taken from which custom vinyl trays are made. A carbamide peroxide gel is placed in these trays and the trays with gel are worn for about 2 hours, or overnight. The entire process takes 7-10 days of daily use. The tray method is recommended for stained teeth. For maintenance of whitened teeth the trays should be used every several months.
The KOR Whitening system is the only reconized whitening system that whitens even tetracycline-stained teeth in a short time (previosly thought to be impossible) and now these results can be achieved with little to no sensitvity. The process involves having impressions taken to fabricate your own unique ultra comfortable KOR-Seal trays, depending on your satin level and the type of staining you have, you and Dr. Gary Eitzian will determine which level of KOR Whitening is best for you.
The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is usually referred to as bonding.
The indirect technique usually involves two appointments because the veneers will be fabricated out of a porcelain/ceramic material. At the first appointment the teeth are prepared, impressions taken, and the teeth are given a temporary covering. In one to two weeks the veneers are ready to be cemented, the temporaries are removed and the veneers are bonded to the teeth.
