Dull dingy colored teeth can mar your appearance by making you look years older. With our teeth whitening products you can simply erase all those added years. Dr. Osina or Dr. Conklin will make an assessment of your natural tooth enamel and evaluate existing dental work for replacement and repairs. The teeth whitening process will be completed before restorative work so that the needed work will match the color of newly bleached teeth.
Zoom!® In Office Teeth Whitening
Zoom!® is a safe, effective and fast way to whiten your teeth and is completed at our office. Your teeth will be dramatically whitened in just over an hour. The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. The proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel is then applied and activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. While you are having your Zoom!® treatment completed, we will fabricate custom bleach trays that you can use to touch up your whitening at home as needed.
At Home Whitening
If you would like to whiten your teeth at home, you can opt for our home whitening procedure. In this case, we will supply customized bleaching trays and professional whitening solution. You will keep the trays and use them for periodic touch-ups as needed.
What should I expect from the home whitening process?
- At your first appointment, we will take impressions for your custom-fitted bleaching trays.
- We will have your custom bleaching trays ready at your second appointment, along with the whitening solution.
- It is normal to experience tooth sensitivity during the time you are whitening your teeth, but it will subside shortly after you have stopped bleaching.
- The next time you are at our office for a visit, we will check up on your whitening results. We can provide more bleach, if necessary.
Straightening Teeth – Your Smile
Why go through life with a crooked smile when straightening your teeth can improve your smile without the nuisance of metal bands and wires. Dr. Osina is a provider for Invisalign® and Clear Correct. Both methods use removable clear plastic trays, called aligners, for straightening misaligned teeth. Often referred to as clear braces, Invisalign® uses a series of aligners to gently move your teeth into the correct position. Straightening teeth has never been easier or more pleasant. A monthly check in with Dr. Osina ensures that your teeth are adapting to the straightening process as they should. On average you can expect to wear between 18 – 36 aligners during the treatment. Depending on your particular case, total treatment can last from 9 to 18 months for this type of cosmetic dentistry.
Porcelain Veneers and Porcelain Crowns
When a tooth has significant damage such as that produced by a breakage or a large cavity, it may need the added protection of a crown. Teeth repaired through root canal therapy are also good candidates for crowns since they can become brittle over time. Porcelain crowns provide strength to teeth when the enamel has been worn away or is missing. Porcelain crowns are made to look like your natural teeth. The color is matched to fit with your existing teeth and they feel like natural teeth as well.
