If you have relatively healthy teeth and gums, but are still displeased with the appearance of your smile, a cosmetic dentistry treatment may be in order. Dr. Udoff expertly places porcelain veneers – thin, translucent shells – on the surface of cracked, chipped, broken, badly discolored, misshapen, or uneven teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom-crafted to fit each individual smile and conceal any visible dental flaws.
For patients who desire brighter, whiter smiles, we can administer a professional-grade teeth whitening treatment. Other patients may benefit from Invisalign®, an outstanding alternative to traditional metal braces in which a series of clear, plastic trays are used to correct misaligned teeth. Patients can achieve picture-perfect smiles, and no one will even know they are undergoing treatment. If more than one cosmetic treatment is required for the patient’s desired result, Dr. Udoff may recommend a complete smile makeover.
Restorative dentistry is necessary for returning strength and functionality to badly damaged or decayed teeth. Dental crowns, also known as caps, are made to replicate the look and feel of the natural tooth. Any decay is first removed, and the cap is then placed over the reduced tooth so it can function like new again. For patients with one or more missing teeth, Dr. Udoff also offers dental bridges, which are comprised of artificial teeth supported on either side by crowns. Both crowns and bridges can be attached to dental implants. Implants are surgically set into the jaw to function as a stable, sturdy root of a natural-looking prosthetic tooth, which is attached to the post to fill the open space.
In order for the teeth to remain healthy and strong for a lifetime, patients must come in for routine checkups every six months. Dr. Udoff performs general dentistry procedures, including thorough examinations of the teeth and gums, X-ray evaluations of the entire mouth, and professional cleanings. Additionally, fluoride treatments and dental sealants are recommended as preventive measures to fight harmful decay or bacteria from infecting the teeth and gums. Dr. Udoff and his team take the time to educate patients on proper oral health habits, which include brushing, flossing, rinsing, and seeing Dr. Udoff regularly.
