Everything You Want To Know About Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures at Oceanfront DentalMarch 15, 2020
Straightening your smile:
Crowded teeth may not only be embarrassing it is also much harder to keep clean. Thanks to Invisible braces and clear braces, teeth straightening has gone through major changes. Cosmetic dentists who offer Invisalign© can give their patients a more beautiful smile in as little as 6 months and an average of 12 to 18 months.
These are custom-made, clear plastic aligners that can gradually move your teeth into the smile you’ve always wanted. Depending upon your individualized treatment, you receive new aligners every week or two. And Invisalign© treatment is much less painful than conventional wires and brackets.
Enhancing your smile:
There’s more to your smile than your teeth. Dr. Seddon is highly skilled in treating both TMD and upper face areas (glabellar and crow’s feet areas) and the frontalis (forehead area).
Design your smile:
You can actually design your smile. Through the use of photos, videos and models, you can design your own ideal smile. Whether digital imaging is used, a direct mock-up of your mouth, or an indirect wax-up, there is much to be considered. Planning and execution are critical.
Whiten your smile:
For teeth whitening, we suggest choosing professional whitening instead of over-the-counter teeth whitening products from local pharmacies because these products can ultimately cause tooth sensitivity, chalky or even see-through teeth. At Oceanfront dental, we carefully monitor the teeth whitening process.
Take-Home Teeth whitening is about a two-week process, whereas our in-house Zoom whitening treatment can be completed in just about 45 minutes. Both involve gels, but in the Zoom process, Dr. Seddon employs a laser light that activates the gel to penetrate your teeth, whitening and brightening your smile in a single appointment.
Replace your smile:
Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth. They can last a lifetime. Artificial teeth are matched to the rest of your smile and are as strong and sturdy as your natural teeth. When you weigh the cost over a period of time, dental implants are actually a more affordable solution than dentures.
Immediate implants / front tooth replacement is one of Dr. Seddon’s favourite procedures for the simple fact that a patient is able to see immediate results. It is also one of the least invasive procedures.
Teeth in a Day may be for you if you have existing dentures or if your teeth may soon be lost. This process removes the remaining teeth to secure a denture for immediate use. The resulting benefits are significant and can be life-changing.
