Whitening + Bleaching
A simple, safe and proven way to combat surface stains on your teeth is professional teeth whitening. It is a treatment of choice for many before an important event such as a job interview, a special date, an event or a party as it is fast and affordable. A number of over-the-counter products that promise to improve the shade of your teeth are available, but professional whitening has been found to be the most effective way to drastically improve the shade of your teeth in a single session. Since it is performed under the supervision of a dental expert, the procedure is also safer.
Veneers are wafer thin pieces of porcelain or composite that are used to mask imperfections on your teeth and create a natural look for your smile. At the office of Dean Israel and Associates, we offer high-quality veneers that closely match the natural color of your teeth. We provide traditional porcelain and composite veneers, as well as branded veneers from DaVinci, Empress Veneers and EMAX.
Veneers can improve the position, shape and color of your teeth. We carefully choose the color of your veneer to closely match with the natural color of your teeth. Veneers make the teeth look natural and healthy. They only cover the front surface of a tooth, thereby allowing for maximum preservation of the natural tooth structure.
Uses of veneers:
To improve the color of a stained or discolored tooth
To make a chipped tooth look whole again
To bring a slightly out of position tooth in line with the other teeth
To close small gaps between the teeth
Before placing a veneer, some of the enamel surface of the tooth needs to be removed. Local anesthesia is used to prevent discomfort during the procedure. Once the tooth has been prepared by shaving off as much enamel as the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth is taken to prepare your custom veneer. The color of the veneer is matched with your natural teeth color. The restoration is permanently bonded on to the tooth and given a natural-looking shape.
When people consider undergoing a major dental makeover to fix teeth alignment and other dental issues, veneers are usually the first treatment that comes to mind. Although veneers are an effective way to achieve a flawless smile, the procedure is more radical than with Lumineers. Lumineers, a product owned by DenMat Holdings, LLC, is a less invasive technique that offers the same benefits as porcelain veneers without the need for shots or temporaries. With this technique, you get instant results that last and a procedure that is reversible. Lumineers, a product owned by DenMat Holdings, LLC, are simply bonded to the original teeth and set in place by a curing light. Your natural teeth will remain intact allowing you to have them removed at any time.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is used to completely cover a tooth above the gum line. Crowns can be used to strengthen damaged teeth so that they appear and function normally, as well as improve cosmetic. Crowns are also used as protective covers for teeth that have recently undergone root canal treatment to protect them from fractures.
A dental bridge is one of the solutions that can be used to fill the gaps or spaces caused by multiple missing teeth between healthy, natural teeth. When one or more of your teeth are missing, the gap created can cause the nearby healthy teeth to shift out of position. This often leads to bite issues, unfavorable cosmetics, and other oral problems. A dental bridge fills the space caused by missing teeth. A bridge consists of two or more dental crowns placed on the natural teeth at both ends and fused to artificial teeth between them which fill the gap.
The maintenance of crowns and bridges is easy. These restorations can last many years when properly cared for. All you need to do is follow a good at-home oral hygiene regimen and regularly visit our office for checkups.
