Cosmetic Teeth Whitening…
What is teeth whitening?
Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that reverses discolorations of enamel ( the outside layer of tooth structure) to create a whiter brighter smile. No natural tooth structure is lost, and no anesthetic is required.
How Do I Know If Teeth Whitening Is For Me?
We’re glad to help you determine if you’re a good candidate. First, for your safety, we need to check the strength and condition of you teeth through an exam with X-Rays.
Then, before recommending teeth whitening for you, we need to diagnose theexact cause of your teeth discoloration. A number of factors can contribute to discoloration, including:
- Tetracycline (antibiotic) staining
- Excessive fluoride
- Trauma (injury) to the teeth
- Pulp (nerve and blood supply) degeneration inside the teeth
- Restorative materials (silver, gold)
- Genetic and acquired illnesses
- Use of staining substances, such as coffee, tea or tobacco
What Teeth Whitening Options Are Available?
Depending upon your unique situation, we may offer one of two different types of teeth whitening systems: in-office or at home. Sometimes we recommend a combination of both to give you the best results in a reasonable amount of time.
Are Touch Ups Required?
To stay whiter and brighter, your teeth may require periodi touch ups requiring that you wear your appliance with the whitening solution as you notice your teeth beginning darken again. This will happen with time and is unpreventable. Your diet, pulp health, etcetera unique to you will determine the rate your teeth change shades. With the at home bleaching system you will be able to reuse your trays to retreat your teeth, just stop by the office for more solution. If you have had any major dental work since your trays were made you may need new trays, ask Dr. Perry for advice.
About Dental Implants…
If you are missing one or more teeth, you’ll want to talk with Dr. Perry about replacements that are as natural as possible. If your dentures are loose or don’t work for you, you may consider dental implants. Dental implants are permanently anchored into the jaw and used to put permanent non-removable teeth in or stabilize your denture so it won’t move while eating or talking.
You are a good candidate for dental implants if you have jawbone ridges that are in good shape and your are in good physical health. The dental implant, forms chemical and mechanical bond, and the bone actually grows into the implant forming an osseointegration between the bone and the implant. With dental implants at Dr. Perry’s dental office, you get a perfect fit, and they will look and feel as good as, or better than your original teeth.
To replace multiple teeth, a full upper or lower hybrid denture or full arch fixed bridge is available also.
For this type of prosthesis I discuss with the patient their concerns regarding existing dentures or dental situation, so I can help guide the patient toward their goals, with existing treatment modalities which would achieve their goals. Generally we are talking about implant supported bridge or hybrid denture although there may be other treatment options including saving teeth, intravenous or oral sedation, etc. Sometimes new denture may be needed to guide us toward the final fixed prosthesis to give the patient and myself a visual reference, especially if the existing denture(s) are too worn or existing teeth are not useful as a visual guide. At about that same time we do impressions and 3D imaging of the patient’s mouth to visualize the anatomy, volume and location of bone for implant placement. With the images/scans and models of the existing teeth and/or dentures we can virtually simulate the patients mouth.
Photo 1 on the shows where the patient’s lower teeth were which are leaning too far forward, on the Photo 2 shows the virtual removal of the lower teeth and new placement of where we repositioned virtual teeth on the upper and lower arches. This dramatically improves her profile and esthetics. After the teeth are virtually positioned, the surgical guides can be made to assist in placement of the implants for accuracy.
Then the actual implants are placed. Immediately dentures could be attached to the implants for same day teeth also called teeth-in-a-day. Generally though the patient will continue to wear their dentures with the implants under the tissue for 3 months while the implants integrate or attach the bone.
After the 3 months the implants are uncovered if needed. Then an indexed impression to relate all the implants to the ridge is made to fabricate the Fixed bridge or hybrid denture as shown.
Aligner orthodontics makes it easy to straighten your teeth without bands, brackets, or wires. Forget everything your heard about teeth straightening. Because a proven technology now exists that lets you straighten your teeth invisibly.
Aligners are a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during as well as after treatment. In fact, virtually no one will know your wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign or Clear Correct aligners straighten your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two to three weeks and your teeth will move little by little, toward the smile you have always wanted. Wear the aligners about 22 hours a day taking them out only for eating or cleaning your teeth or for that important meeting or date.
