Today we want to highlight four ways our office can make instant changes to your smile.

  1. Whiten Dingy, Stained Teeth

Stained teeth give the appearance of an unhealthy smile, so it’s important to address this issue. Teeth whitening is one of the oldest forms of cosmetic dentistry. It’s been used for decades and is safe and effective. Aside from the many over-the-counter whitening products, many people are turning to their dentist for a brighter smile. There are a few reasons you need to visit a dentist for great whitening.

For one, the over-the-counter whitening treatments are typically not strong enough to make a noticeable change. Secondly, whitening strips available at your local drug store are not uniform to your smile, which can lead to an unbalanced coloring in your smile. Third and most important, whitening treatments should always be oversee by a professional, as we first need to make sure you’re free of gum disease and cavities (whitening agents can irritate unhealthy gums and teeth).

When you come to our office, we’ll fashion a custom mouthpiece and prescribe a high-strength whitening gel. You’ll use the whitening treatment daily and improve your smile by several shades in just a few weeks!

  1. Replace Missing Teeth With Implants

Surprisingly, yes dental implants can be easily placed — and placed fast. Now the strongest tooth replacement option in dentistry, dental implants can give you more biting ability, preserve your jawbone, AND give you a more youthful smile. Not only do dental implants nearly match the power of your natural smile, but they can be restored in a number of ways.

At Advanced Dental Associates, we can place an implant and crown for a single missing teeth, stabilize your dentures with dental implants. We even have mini dental implants for patients struggling with jawbone recession. One of our more popular implant options for denture patients is All-on-4 dental implants. This system is so special because the upper restoration leaves the top palate open — common complaint of denture wearers. With the upper palate open, patients experience more tastes and hot and cold sensation.

Our implant surgery is simple, and we can even place temporary teeth the same day. You’ll never have to go without teeth again!

  1. Zap Gum Disease With Laser Dentistry

Gum problems can derail a great smile. In fact, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. The infection attacks the gums and then can move to the bone, causing the tooth to fail. Our office is now using lasers to remove gum infections so you won’t have to worry about losing your teeth to gum disease. This treatment is revolutionary in that it replaces the use of scalpels and stitches. Instead of cutting the gums and removing the infection, the laser evaporates the infection and sets the stage for healthy tooth and gum reattachment.

We can often treat your gum disease in a single day, and the best part is that most patients report little to know sensitivity after the procedure.

  1. Make Your Smile Pop With Minimal Veneers

There is one way to correct heavy stains, chips, cracks, or even small breaks. Veneers are restorations that are placed over the damaged teeth. We typically need to remove a small portion of the enamel to fit the veneer, but we also have minimal veneers. These veneers often require no removal of the tooth enamel, meaning you can come into the office and have a better smile in just one visit.

We’ll Fix Any Smile Flaw

These are just a few ways to quickly change your smile. We can offer some many different services because we have dentists trained in all aspects of dentistry, whether that’s enhancing the look of your smile or building you a new smile entirely.
