At Family Dental Care, we understand how having a great smile can have a positive impact on a persons life. Owning a smile that you are proud of can improve your self image, enhance your self confidence and change your entire life. Dr. Sepahbody is continually taking courses on the newest techniques and materials to stay on the cutting edge of cosmetic dentistry. He can help you achieve the smile that you have always wanted through a variety of “state of the art” techniques including: BLEACHING and VENEERS (tooth facings).
Bleaching is a conservative way of whitening teeth. Many daily habits such as smoking and coffee drinking over a long period of time, can cause our teeth to become stained and unattractive. If this is the case with your teeth, bleaching may be a fast and inexpensive way to brighten your smile. During your initial visit we will take an impression of your teeth and fabricate a tray which you will fill with our tooth whitening gel and wear one to two hours a day. After one to two weeks of use, most of our patients experience significant results without permanently changing the shape or size of the teeth.
PORCELAIN AND COMPOSITE VENEERS
There are situations where bleaching alone simply will not be enough to create the special smile that you desire. In these situations, we may recommend porcelain or composite veneers (facings) in order to achieve that perfect smile. Some examples of situations where veneers would be an effective treatment include: repairing chipped teeth, closing spaces between teeth, changing the shape or size of teeth and covering up deep staining.
Planning Your New Smile
After listening to your specific concerns at your initial visit, Dr. Sepahbody will carefully examine the current condition of your teeth. We will then help you select the color, shape and size that are just right for you.
The preparation of the teeth consists of removing a small amount of enamel (approximately one millimeter), to make room for a very thin porcelain or composite veneer. An impression is taken at this time, and sent to our lab for veneer fabrication.
Giving You Your New Smile
At your next appointment, the new veneers are bonded into place permanently. We use a very strong bonding material which ensures that your veneers will remain firmly attached to your teeth. You will leave our office that day, proud and eager to show off your new smile.
