At Atlantic Dental Associates, we consider esthetics in every procedure we perform. However, there are certain services aimed specifically at enhancing esthetics of you smile.
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they've been dreaming of with our simple "whitening" procedure. It's safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin whitening your teeth. We have multiple whitening options for you. Our first whitening option is the one most patients choose. It's simple and effective! As a dental health care facility, we are able to offer you prescription strength teeth whitening strips. These are the same strength as the older whitening trays, but are more convenient and more affordable. If you opt for the traditional bleaching, or you do not achieve the results you were hoping for with the strips, then we can begin fabricating traditional whitening trays for you.
We will take impressions of you mouth and in a day or two your custom whitening trays will be ready for you to pick up. We provide you with a special whitening agent that you put into the clear, almost invisible trays. By wearing the trays with the whitening gel only a few hours every day, stains from coffee, tea, wine, and other foods and beverages are bubbled out of your enamel in a very short time without altering tooth structure or existing dental work in any way. When your teeth reach the brightness you want, only occasional treatment is needed to maintain your beautiful new smile!
Ceramic E.max and Empress Crowns
E.max and Empress crowns are the most beautiful, lifelike ceramic crowns available today. They offer a translucency and natural appearance unlike any other! We recommend that you whiten your teeth first, as the E.max or Empress ceramic is transparent. This will also allow you to obtain an ideal and accurate shade match for your new crown.
We are now able to fabricate your E.max crowns in one dental visit with our new CEREC machine. This is the same-day crown technology you have been hearing about on the news! We now believe that this technology is advanced enough to offer to our patients with predictable and long-lasting results, and perfectly fitting margins! Ask about our same-day crowns when you contact us!
Porcelain veneers are very thin shells of porcelain that cover tooth structure. Very little preparation is necessary, so a maximum amount of tooth structure is conserved. Veneers do have the ability to become dislodged under enough force. If this happens with your veneers, we can discuss options for eliminating this inconvenience.
Bonding is one of the most conservative procedures that exist for altering the contours of your teeth and enhancing the esthetics of your smile today. Bonding utilizes the same materials we use for fillings, and can be done completely inside our office in one day. Often times bonding can be done without the use of anesthesia (shots)!
