If you are a teen or adult wishing to correct misaligned teeth, but have reservations about traditional metal braces, you may benefit from Invisalign®. This orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear, comfortable mouthpieces that move your teeth into place gently over time. Invisalign® can be removed when you are eating or cleaning your teeth, making treatment simple, discreet, and effective.
If your teeth have small chips or cracks, or if they are inconsistent in size or shape, veneers can help. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that can improve the appearance of damaged, misaligned, or misshapen teeth by concealing imperfections. Dr. Levy has been working closely with the same lab for many years. They handcraft veneers from a wax model of your teeth to achieve an excellent fit. In just two visits, veneers can give you a beautiful new smile.
If your smile isn’t as white and bright as you would like, we offer in-office and take-home whitening systems. Our in-office solution, Zoom!®, is a bleaching process that lightens discolored enamel and dentin, and delivers dramatic results you can see after just one visit. If you would rather whiten at home, Opalescence® is a take-home whitening system that also provides excellent results. Dr. Levy can also recommend over-the-counter products to enhance your smile.
If you have a tooth that is in need of minor repair, dental bonding may be the solution. This procedure involves a tooth-colored resin that is applied directly to the tooth. Once in place, it is carefully shaped before being cured with a special light. Dental bonding provides excellent results and can restore chipped or cracked teeth, fill in small gaps between teeth, and improve the color of stained teeth. It is also an aesthetic alternative to metal (amalgam) fillings.
Six Month Smiles®
Six Month Smiles® is a unique and advanced cosmetic treatment that can guide your misaligned teeth into place quickly, safely, and easily using clear braces. For adults who do not want to take on the commitment of traditional metal braces, Six Month Smiles® can be a great alternative. The treatment focuses on the teeth that show when you smile. These teeth are moved gradually into a straightened position over a period of just about six months.
A smile makeover is a comprehensive and customized dental treatment that combines multiple dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, placement of dental veneers, dental bonding, or dental implant placement and restoration. In the field of cosmetic dentistry, this is truly where artistry meets science. Your smile makeover will be designed to enhance not only your teeth, but your overall appearance.
