Dental tooth bonding ranks as one of the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedures available to patients who want to improve their smiles. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth, making bonding the ideal treatment to improve the appearance of discolored or chipped teeth, remove decay, lighten stains, close minor gaps or correct crooked teeth.
After lightly etching the surface of a tooth, Drs. Matheson and Holecek will place a bonding resin on the surface of the tooth, and then begin reshaping the color and contour of the tooth so that it fits seamlessly with the rest of your smile. Once cured under a high-intensity light, the surface of the tooth is then polished.
Tooth bonding offers an affordable, effective and long-lasting way to restore the natural appearance of your smile.
Dental veneers (commonly called porcelain veneers) are thin, custom-made sheets of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve the appearance of your smile. These sheets are bonded to the front of teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length. Due to their minuscule size, dental veneers are nearly undetectable and blend seamlessly with your smile.
Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the toothsurface before placement. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you with Drs. Matheson and Holecek.
The treatment and placement of dental veneers can be completed in as little as three dental visits. The first visit involves a consultation with Drs. Matheson and Holecek where an impression of your teeth will be made and sent off to the lab where your custom fitted veneers will be made. Once the size, shape and color of the veneers have all been checked, your third visit will include the placement and bonding of the veneers to the surface of your teeth.
Veneers require the same type and amount of care as regular teeth. Patients will need to continue to brush at least twice a day and floss daily, along with scheduling regular visits with Drs. Matheson and Holecek at Impressions Dental, to ensure a bright, healthy smile for years to come.
Straightening Teeth with Invisalign
At Impressions Dental, we offer Invisalign treatment for adults wanting to improve the look and feel of their smiles.
Invisalign utilizes an advanced approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-designed series of aligners created specifically for each individual patient. These aligner trays are constructed using smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that patients wear over the front of their teeth. By wearing the aligners, a patient’s smile gradually and gently shifts as their teeth move into the desired position planed out by Drs. Matheson and Holecek.
Invisalign uses no metal brackets, attaches nothing to the surface of your teeth and has no wires to tighten. Just pop in a new set of aligners once every two weeks until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great looking smile that offers little interference with your day-to-day routines. The best part about the Invisalign process is that no one will even know you’re straightening your teeth!
The Invisalign system offers comfort and convenience, allowing you to view your virtual results and treatment plan before you start so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.
