Comprehensive Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures
To begin, Dr. Udoff will conduct a one-on-one consultation, during which he will want to know what bothers you about your smile, and what you would like to achieve. After a thorough examination, Dr. Udoff will recommend the best course of action for reaching your aesthetic goals. He has the expertise to identify how to give you a bright, gorgeous smile that fits impeccably with your facial features. Cosmetic dentistry procedures include:
If you have chipped, cracked, broken, misshapen, discolored, or uneven front teeth, porcelain veneers are an excellent remedy. These tiny shells are crafted from high-quality porcelain, which mimics the light-reflecting properties of natural tooth enamel, and are placed onto the surfaces of front teeth to conceal any flaws. Veneers are customized for each individual smile, and are strong and durable, in many cases lasting for a decade or longer.
Dental bonding can help to restore the appearance and strength of teeth that are decayed, damaged, broken, chipped, widely spaced, or discolored. The composite resin material is first chosen to match to your natural tooth color and is then sculpted onto the necessary tooth. Dr. Udoff shapes the material so it looks natural and beautiful. A special light is then applied to harden the material. Dr. Udoff buffs the tooth and makes any final adjustments before you leave our practice with your new, improved smile. Dental bonding is often used to replace old, highly conspicuous silver amalgam dental fillings as well.
Have you noticed that your teeth aren’t looking as bright and white as they possibly once did? If so, Dr. Udoff administers an extra-strength teeth whitening treatment for patients. Teeth whitening is the simplest treatment for enhancing nearly any smile. After one office visit, teeth can appear up to eight shades whiter. Age, tobacco use, certain medications, and excessive coffee, tea, soda, and wine consumption all contribute to the teeth becoming yellow, grey, dingy, or stained. A teeth whitening treatment will restore that radiant glow for picture-perfect pearly whites.
Now it is possible to correct misaligned teeth or bite and jaw alignment without anyone even knowing. Invisalign® provides the same exceptional results as traditional metal braces; however, the clear, smooth, plastic aligners are virtually impossible to detect. The aligners are removable for easy maintenance and are virtually undetectable to others. Approximately every six weeks a new aligner is worn, gently shifting the teeth into their correct position. Dr. Udoff maps out a treatment plan for best accomplishing a picture-perfect smile.
Dr. Udoff has experience performing complete smile makeovers for his patients. He will carefully design your new smile and administer the necessary procedures for achieving the desired look. A smile makeover is tailored to each patient’s individual needs and may include any combination of cosmetic dentistry procedures performed simultaneously.
