Make yourself a priority this year to achieve your healthiest and most beautiful smile with Eastport Dental of Mesa, AZ. Let Dr. Vinh Huynh, DMD help you begin the new year with a fresh smile and a fresh outlook. Take a look at our top 5 cosmetic treatments for 2023.
#1: Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is a simple way you can improve your smile. Eastport Dental of Mesa, AZ offers both take home whitening kits and in-office laser whitening treatments that can give you the pearly whites of your dreams.
Although there are several over-the-counter products that can whiten your teeth, these products have their limitations and results are very temporary. Professional products provided by a dentist use higher quality materials that help you achieve better and longer lasting results.
Eastport Dental’s take home whitening kit is an easy-to use, custom fit set of trays. Trays are worn in the comfort of your home, allowing you to gradually brighten your teeth at your convenience and your schedule. With take home trays, you can lighten up to 8 shades lighter in just two weeks.
Glo Laser whitening is an in-office whitening procedure that can bring your teeth 8 shades lighter in just one hour. Relax in our comfortable dental chairs while our trained staff brighten your teeth using a heat activated whitening solution.
While the results of both take home trays and Glo whitening lasts months or even years, these treatments can be repeated as often as you like.
#2: Clear Aligner Orthodontics To Straighten Your Teeth
Your smile can now be straightened without metal wires and brackets with the use of clear aligner trays! Cutting edge technology can now predict how your teeth should move and design a custom plan just for you to achieve a straighter smile. Thin, clear acrylic trays are designed to gently put pressure on your teeth. Every two weeks, a new set of trays is used to slowly move teeth into place. You can expect to see results quickly, and have your straighter smile complete in 6-12 months!
#3: Replacing Silver Fillings With White Ones
Silver fillings were, at one time, the standard for repairing areas of dental decay. While very strong, these restorations caused teeth to appear discolored. With advances in dental materials, the use of tooth colored composite resin is now the standard for treatment of decay. Old silver fillings can, in most cases, easily be replaced with beautiful, white composite greatly improving the appearance of your smile. By switching to tooth colored fillings, you can laugh with confidence.
#4: Tooth Bonding and Recontouring
Composite bonding and tooth recontouring are cosmetic procedures used to correct irregular spaces, repair chips and wear, and reshape teeth. Both are minimally invasive and often do not require the need for any local anesthetic.
While these procedures are similar, they are very different. Composite resin is perfectly matched to your natural tooth and bonded to the tooth surface. It is then adjusted to the desired size and shape. Bonding can be replaced at any time if breakage or stains occur. Recontouring involves removing a very small amount of tooth surface. Making this very small change in the teeth can make big changes in the appearance of your smile. Tooth recontouring is permanent, but you can expect to love the results.
#5: Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are slightly more invasive that bonding or recontouring. But they’re significantly more dramatic!
Requiring two appointments, thin porcelain shells are custom designed to fit onto the front portion of individual teeth. Veneers provide a permanent solution to stains, chips, spaces, and misshapen teeth. Providing a beautiful smile makeover in just two appointments, veneers can last for years even decades.
Discuss your smile goals with Dr. Huynh to see if porcelain veneers are right for you.
#6: Same Day Ceramic Dental Crowns
A ceramic crown provides full coverage and protection for the entire tooth surface. While more tooth surface is removed than a veneer, a crown is the strongest restoration available. With crowns, you can easily replace silver fillings, correct coloration, and close spaces. Fractures in tooth surface can be sealed with a crown, restoring full bite strength.
Eastport Dental is proud to offer CEREC same day crowns. As opposed to veneers, there is no need for multiple appointments taking you away from your busy schedule and you only need anesthetic one time!
