How does Invisalign compare to traditional metal braces?
Metal braces use brackets and wires to shift the teeth into a more even position. Braces also require appointments where orthodontists adjust the wires, which can irritate and poke at the gum tissue. On the other hand, Invisalign utilizes clear aligners to gradually straighten the teeth. Each set of aligners is slightly different and gently realigns the smile. The aligners do not irritate the gums and only require slight adjustment with each new pair.
Do I need dental crowns, inlays, or onlays?
Inlays and onlays are known as partial crowns because they do not fully cover teeth.

How long do dental veneers last?
With the right care, dental veneers can last for many years without the need for replacement. To care for your veneers, continue to brush and floss twice a day. Gently brush your veneers with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Use non-abrasive toothpaste to prevent damage to your dental veneers. You may also schedule routine dental visits so we can keep track of the health of your smile and the appearance of your dental veneers.
What are my options for teeth whitening treatment?
We offer both in-office and take-home whitening treatment. Our deep bleaching treatment uses a combination of in-office and take-home care. KöR teeth whitening is a highly effective treatment that can remove deep stains caused by coffee, tea, wine, and tobacco use. It uses a deep bleaching gel that dissolves the molecules that stain the enamel.
For patients who want to whiten their teeth at home, we provide custom-made whitening trays. We do need to create these trays with impressions in our office. However, once the impressions are complete, we provide patients with their whitening kit. At home, patients apply the whitening gel to the trays and wear the tray for a certain amount of time to brighten their smiles.
