Both over-the-counter and professional teeth whitening agents brighten your smile, but the whiteners used at Danville Family Dentist are stronger and work faster. In most cases, you can have whiter teeth in about an hour.
So, if you’d like a dramatic change in the color of your teeth quickly, Dr. Singh has the tools to whiten your teeth up to eight shades brighter with Philips Zoom!, her preferred in-office advanced laser teeth whitening system.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Singh can determine whether teeth whitening is right for you. Teeth whiteners can’t fix all stains: yellow stains respond well to whitening, while some brown or gray stains may not respond at all if they’re in the interior of the tooth where standard bleaching agents can’t reach them.
After teeth whitening, you may experience some nerve sensitivity due to the action of the bleaching agent, but the discomfort is temporary.
Veneers are porcelain shells that cover your teeth. They brighten and fix misaligned, misshapen, gapped, and broken teeth to create a movie star smile.
Dr. Singh creates personalized veneers using a special mold of your teeth. To place the veneer, she recontours your natural tooth, removing a thin layer of enamel, and uses a special dental glue to adhere the veneer.
Veneers are strong and resistant to stains. However, you need to continue to follow the same oral health practices you would use with your natural teeth, including brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the dentist.
Six Month Smiles is a cosmetic orthodontic system designed specifically to straighten adult teeth. As the name implies, the system straightens your teeth as quickly as possible, or in about six months.
Six Month Smiles is designed to fix your teeth discreetly with the use of clear brackets and tooth-colored wires. The system is primarily focused on fixing your smile, not your bite, which is why it works so quickly. Pain also tends to be less of an issue with Six Month Smiles because of the shortened treatment time.
If you’re looking for a smile makeover, Dr. Singh has a number of options to meet your needs. Call the office or use the online booking agent to schedule an appointment today.
