Clear aligners, also known as invisible aligners, are used to rectify crooked or misaligned teeth. Unlike conventional braces, they are virtually unnoticeable and removable. Nevertheless, you need to wear clear aligners for at least 22 hours every day for effective results.
As clear aligners are not attached to your teeth like traditional braces, you can easily remove them while eating to enjoy all kinds of foods. Moreover, you do not have to be careful about wires and brackets while brushing, as clear aligners can be conveniently removed and cleaned separately.

Brushing and flossing every day is vital for keeping your teeth healthy. However, if you feel like your smile still lacks some shine, it may be a good idea to opt for a teeth whitening treatment.
In-office bleaching is one of the fastest ways to get your teeth sparkling. You will be able to see dramatic results right after the very first session. You can also opt for laser teeth whitening, which can whiten your teeth quicker than other methods.

Dental crowns are coverings that are placed atop damaged teeth. They help shield and restore your teeth in cases where dental fillings would be insufficient.
You may be eligible for dental crowns if you have a decayed or broken tooth, or need a covering for your dental implant. Porcelain crowns are best for front teeth restorations as they are translucent and appear just like your original teeth.

Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers, are customized shells of tooth-colored materials that are created to cover the front of your teeth. They can be made from either porcelain or composite resin.
Dental veneers are typically used to treat teeth which are discolored, chipped, broken, misaligned, or worn down. In order to prepare a veneer, your dentist will take an imprint of the affected tooth and send it to a laboratory, where the veneer will be manufactured.

This procedure involves the application of a tooth-colored composite resin to a damaged tooth. Dental bonding is a suitable treatment for decayed, cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth.
Your dentist will use a shade guide to choose a composite resin color that best matches the color of your natural teeth. The bonding process begins by roughening your tooth surface and applying a conditioning liquid. The dentist will then apply resin and harden it using a special light.
