Many people have stained or damaged teeth, making them unhappy with their smile or uncomfortable chewing and talking. For these people, cosmetic dentistry services may be able to help. Cosmetic procedures can allow patients to enhance their smile and make chewing and talking more comfortable. Ultimately, cosmetic dental care can boost a patient’s confidence, giving them teeth they can be proud of. Teeth straightening, dental implants, teeth whitening are three types of Cosmetic Dental Care in Honolulu offered to patients.
Teeth straightening is a process in which the positions of the teeth are shifted with regard to each other and to the person’s bite. Teeth straightening may be required to correct an overbite, underbite, or misaligned teeth. One method of teeth straightening is the use of Invisalign acrylic aligners. These aligners take the place of traditional metal braces. They are custom-made for each patient, fully removable, and able to correct minor alignment issues.
Dental implants are a popular option for people who have lost all their teeth or have severely damaged teeth. They have an advantage over dentures in that they are permanent structures in the mouth. Dental implants are made up of metal posts, which are surgically embedded in the jaw, and artificial teeth, which are placed over the metal posts. The implants fuse to the jawbone and make a strong support structure for the artificial teeth.
When teeth stains cannot be removed using the typical over-the-counter products, such as whitening toothpastes, rinses, and gels, a dentist-administered treatment may be in order. One type of dentist-administered treatment is the Zoom! Whitening System. The hydrogen-peroxide containing Zoom! gel is applied to the teeth, then a mercury halide light is used to activate the gel. With this quick treatment, all teeth are whitened at the same time, including crowns and veneers, and the results are long-lasting.
Landmark Dental Group can provide Cosmetic Dental Care in Honolulu. Among the cosmetic services offered are teeth straightening using Invisalign, dental implants, and teeth whitening using the Zoom! Whitening System. Treatments are tailor-made for each individual patient according to their aesthetic and functional needs. Along with every procedure, patients are coached in achieving and maintaining proper oral health.
