|Composite (White) Fillings||Six Month Smiles® (Braces)|
Bonding is a single-appointment cosmetic dentistry procedure in which tooth-colored composite is bonded to the tooth enamel to improve the appearance. It can be used to correct chips, spaces, misalignment and discoloration.
Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. They span the space where the teeth are missing. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants on either side of the empty space. These teeth serve as anchors for the bridge. A replacement tooth is attached to the crowns that cover the anchoring teeth. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth to improve the appearance of the teeth.
Composite (White) Fillings
A composite filling is a tooth colored material used to restore decayed teeth. By using composite fillings, instead of amalgam (silver fillings) our dentists can blend shades to create nearly an identical appearance to that of the actual tooth. Composites bond to the tooth to support the remaining tooth structure, which helps prevent breakage and insulate the tooth from excessive temperature changes.
A crown is a restoration that covers and protects the top portion of the tooth. High-strength ceramic is used to “cap” the tooth. A crown can restore damage from decay or cracks and be used in cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of the teeth.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all or some of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Dentures can help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not change much.
Dental implants are often the treatment of choice to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental exam with x-rays will be reviewed to determine if dental implants are appropriate and if adequate bone exists to support the implant. The titanium implant is placed and allowed to integrate with the bone before a permanent crown, bridge or denture is placed on it. The implant process usually takes a few months and requires proper planning. All phases of your implant procedure can be completed at Enspire Dental.
Invisalign is series of clear aligners (retainers) used to straighten teeth without traditional braces. The aligners are worn 24 hours each day, except while eating and brushing. Aligners are changed every 2 weeks, gradually moving teeth to their final position. Crowding, spacing, crooked teeth, and many bite issues can be corrected with Invisalign. Like all orthodontic treatment, use of retainers after treatment is recommended to maintain the position of the teeth. Treatment time ranges from 6-18months.

At Enspire Dental we are excited to help our patients achieve brighter smiles! Professional teeth whitening (bleaching) can be done in the dental office or at home. Both procedures are safe and effective, although results are seen much quicker with the in-office whitening. Discoloration due to diet, smoking, age and natural tooth color can often be lightened significantly. In-office whitening involves placement of a high-concentration peroxide solution onto the teeth. Whitening is enhanced with the use of a high-intensity light. The procedure involves careful isolation of the gum tissue and lips to prevent contact with the peroxide, followed by multiple applications of the whitening gel. Patients are offered take-home trays to continue the whitening process as desired or for future touch-ups. Take-home whitening utilizes a lower concentration of peroxide gel that is placed in custom-made whitening trays. Trays are worn for short periods during the day or overnight, depending on the formulation of the gel. The fit of the trays is important for comfortable and effective use. Duration of the process varies, but two weeks of home whitening is commonly required for satisfactory results.
Veneers are used to alter the appearance of misaligned, misshapen or discolored teeth. Where porcelain crowns cover the entire surface of a tooth and are used when teeth are severely misaligned or compromised by large fillings or decay, Veneers are a more conservative option, covering only the front surfaces of teeth to correct spacing, minor misalignment or discoloration. Treatment time is approximately 3-4 weeks.
