Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Unlike traditional metal braces, the Invisalign® method involves the patient wearing clear plastic aligner trays for at least 22 hours each day. We begin by taking digital scans, X-rays, and photographs of the patient’s mouth. These images are then sent to an outside dental lab where custom trays are created for the patient.
Getting a “smile makeover” may sound like a procedure that is simply an exercise in vanity, but nothing could be further from the truth. At Forever Smiles, we understand how important a nice smile can be, and how it can make a difference in people’s lives.
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to improve the appearance of your smile is with teeth whitening products. Although there are a variety of over-the-counter products available, none of them are as effective as professional whitening products.
Although typically considered to be a cosmetic procedure, porcelain veneers are also an effective way to repair a variety of dental issues. These include discolored teeth, broken teeth, worn-down teeth, or teeth that either overlap one another or have large gaps in between.
Dental bonding is an effective way to drastically improve the appearance of a patient’s smile, as well as repair some other problems, such as teeth that are misshaped or chipped. Dental bonding is one of many procedures that we are pleased to offer our patients.
The procedure involved in gum contouring is remarkably fast and easy. It involves use of a laser to change the shape of the gum and/or remove excess gum tissue. Use of this laser allows the gums to heal relatively quickly and greatly reduces any bleeding that may occur. Patients are often surprised by the fact that gum contouring is virtually pain-free.
A dental implant consists of an artificial tooth “root” (usually made of titanium) that is implanted into the patient’s jaw, and a porcelain crown that is affixed to the top of the root. Implanting the root into the jaw of the patient requires oral surgery, so we refer our patients to experienced oral surgeons for that portion of the procedure.
Traditional braces are comprised of small pieces of metal/porcelain, each of which is glued to a tooth and connected by wires held in place by metal/porcelain brackets and tie wires or rubber bands. Over the course of many months, the patient’s teeth gradually shift into their new, straighter positions.
