Zoom! Teeth Whitening
Maintaining a perfectly white smile can be a tough challenge through the years. First, just think about all the things you eat and drink that can stain your teeth. From that first cup of coffee in the morning to tomato sauce at lunch or dinner and that chocolate ice cream sundae for dessert, there are so many tasty delights that can stain your teeth. If you smoke—and as health care providers we really hope that you don’t—then the nicotine in cigarettes, cigars, a pipe or chewing tobacco tends to yellow or darken teeth. Other factors that contribute to a less than white smile are teeth grinding, aging and genetics.
There are many bleaching products in the store, but nothing beats professional teeth whitening in Greenfield. With Zoom! Teeth Whitening, your smile can be several shades whiter after only one application. The Zoom! gel uses your teeth’s own ability to absorb oxygen to lift stains and discolorations, penetrating the enamel and dentin layers of your teeth to whiten and brighten. A special light speeds the Zoom! whitening formula, so you see results in the fastest time possible.
If teeth that not only have stains but also structural damage mar your smile, then you may want to speak to Dr. Carini about porcelain veneers. These dental wonders are strong coverings that the cosmetic dentist in Greenfield adhesively bonds to the facial side of teeth at the front of your smile. Each veneer is custom designed and crafted so you don’t have to worry about ending up with a smile that looks like a row of little white blocks.
To apply porcelain veneers, a slim layer of enamel must be carefully removed from your teeth. The amount filed away is roughly the same as the thickness of your new veneers. This step is essential because Dr. Carini wants to make sure that your veneers fit comfortably and evenly in your mouth. Once in place, your porcelain veneers will give you years of delight. Just be sure to brush and floss your teeth every day and have regular dental checkups with Dr. Carini.
Dental crowns are an important cornerstone of restorative dentistry, and these customized restorations are designed to cover singular teeth and rebuild their natural shape and strength. They can be used successfully in a wide variety of circumstances, including the following:
- When a tooth has been injured or fractured.
- When a tooth has a big area of decay that can’t be treated by a cosmetic filling.
- When a tooth has become weakened over time and has a high risk of experiencing breakage in the near future.
- When a tooth has a severe cosmetic flaw, such as a serious stain or a noticeably misshapen structure.
- When a tooth has been lost and replaced with a dental implant that needs to be restored.
Your dentist in Greenfield understands how many patients worry about marring their natural, confident smile with a dark-colored crown. Thankfully, Dr. Carini and Dr. Blanchard offer a cosmetic-friendly option: porcelain crowns! Dental porcelain is high in quality and beautifully tooth-colored. Not only does it replicate your original tooth’s strength and function, but it also blends right in with the rest of your smile. Additionally, the material is very biocompatible and not as sensitive to changes in temperature as traditional dental metals, which results in more comfort for the patient. Our doctors will always make sure that you’re fully happy with the crown we’ve designed before permanently seating it over the hurting and/or imperfect tooth.
Do you have a relatively small cosmetic flaw, such as a small chip on a tooth, a stubborn stain, or a minor gap between teeth? These issues may seem minor in nature, but they can still grab your attention in the worst way every time you look in the mirror or your see your smile in a photograph. Thankfully, there’s a fast and easy way to correct the problem here at Advanced Dental Treatment Center – cosmetic bonding. This treatment only takes a single appointment of your time, and the results are simply beautiful.
When performing cosmetic bonding, one of our doctors will start by selecting the ideal shade of composite resin (the same material used for cosmetic fillings) that’s a precise match for your tooth enamel. Then, they will sculpt it carefully over the offending flaw, shaping it so that it blends in well with the tooth’s natural appearance. Once everyone is happy with the results we’ve achieved, a modern curing light will harden the composite resin in place. This process typically requires less than an hour of time, depending on the size and severity of the cosmetic problem.
Cosmetic bonding is a very affordable procedure when compared to other likeminded services. While the results may not be as long-lasting as porcelain veneers or metal-free restorations, a good oral hygiene routine at home and regular checkups at our practice can help you maintain the improvements you’ve achieved for several years. We do recommend that you limit your exposure to staining substances like cigarettes, tea, or coffee, as they may cause the composite resin to become discolored over time.
Older patients surely remember the days of dentists using dark-colored, amalgam fillings to correct cavities. Thankfully, your dentist in Greenfield has chosen to invest in an alternative method that prioritizes your appearance and your self-confidence. We offer cosmetic, tooth-colored fillings that are made from composite resin.
Composite resin is a conservative and high-quality dental material that comes in many different shades, allowing our team to compare them to your smile and select the one that’s the closest match. After removing all of the decayed areas from the affected tooth, this substance is carefully sculpted into place and hardened with a curing light. This procedure can typically be completed over the course of a single appointment here in Greenfield, and our doctors are capable of both placing new fillings and replacing (in some cases) old, metal fillings with new ones.
There are several valuable benefits associated with choosing cosmetic fillings as your restorative solution of choice, including:
- Your new filling will be so lifelike in appearance that other people won’t even realize your tooth has suffered any damage.
- Cosmetic fillings are also much more flexible than the traditional version, which means that we can create smaller fillings that don’t require patients to sacrifice their tooth’s remaining healthy structure. As a result, you can expect your tooth to regain more of its strength and function.
- Cosmetic fillings are free of mercury, which makes them safer for patients of all ages.
- With the help of proper maintenance at home and in our office, cosmetic fillings can regularly last for 10-15 years or even longer.
If you’re starting to notice fine lines and wrinkles that are making you look older than you feel, our skilled cosmetic dentist and team can help. We offer botulinum toxin injections and dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of these fine lines and wrinkles and help you look years younger. For patients with wrinkles around the eyes or on the forehead, we will likely recommend botulinum toxin injections. In most cases, botulinum toxin is only recommended for wrinkle reduction in the top third of the face. These injections limit unconscious muscle movements that can create creases in the skin over time. Following your initial injection, you’ll notice significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. To maintain your flawless results, we’ll recommend you visit us for retreatment every three to four months. Patients who want to improve the appearance of smile lines or shrunken in facial appearance around the mouth, dermal fillers may be a better option. As we age, the body begins to produce less collagen, and this leads to wrinkling and sagging in the skin which is no longer fully supported. To replace the lost supportive tissue and reshape the face, we can inject dermal fillers below the skin. Once the dermal filler has been injected, we can shape the filler material to recreate your lost facial shape and volume leaving you with a smooth, youthful appearance. To maintain your results, we’ll need to see you for retreatment two to three times each year.
