Zoom 2 Whitening
Looking for that "celebrity smile?" Zoom2 is the professional whitening system that everyone’s talking about.
This fast in-office whitening treatment will have you seeing a new smile that is 6-8 shades whiter in about an hour, while you enjoy watching television or listening to your favorite music. In this process, a protective gel is applied to your gums to protect the soft tissue. A light-activated gel is then applied to your teeth and a special light is used to enhance the action of the whitening agent. Finally, we take impressions of your teeth to create custom trays for at home touch-up, and give you instructions for keeping your smile bright. The home touch up kit will help you maintain the beautiful results.
Porcelain veneers are a great aesthetic solution to enhance your smile and boost your self confidence.
Veneers are thin tooth colored "shells" that are custom prepared for your teeth. Typically bonded to your front teeth, veneers can close a gap, cover unsightly stains such as tetracycline, repair broken or chipped teeth, and may even help you avoid some orthodontic treatment.
Call for an appointment and see if porcelain veneers are right for enhancing your smile.
Often used to improve the appearance of your teeth and improve your smile, cosmetic bonding can be used to repair a small chip or break a front tooth or to hide discolored areas on the tooth(’s) surface. As its name indicates, a plastic or resin material is bonded to the existing tooth/teeth while removing minimal tooth structure. Bonding has its limitations and cannot be used in all circumstances. Ask Dr. Flax or Dr. Snitofsky if bonding is the best cosmetic option for you.
Crowns and Bridges
If you have large metal fillings, broken, chipped or missing teeth a crown and/or bridge may be the best choice to restore your smile and have you looking your very best. A crown is a permanent "tooth replacement" constructed of porcelain to give you the most pleasing and natural appearance. A bridge is also a permanent "tooth replacement," spanning more than one tooth space. Both types of restoration are custom designed to give you back optimal function as well as a beautiful smile.
Do you or someone you know have one or more missing teeth? Are the spaces decreasing your ability to chew food, making your smile less attractive or affecting your speech? Are you currently wearing uncomfortable dentures to fill in the gaps? If you answer “yes” to any of these questions consider replacing your missing teeth with dental implants.
