Tooth whitening treatments allow patients to safely and dramatically brighten teeth to a dazzling, pearly white. Teeth tend to yellow or stain over time, often from habitual coffee, tea, or soda drinking and exposure to other staining agents, such as tobacco, wine, and certain foods. During the procedure, a hydrogen peroxide-based gel is applied to the teeth; upon exposure to a special light, the bleaching properties of the gel are activated. After a single, one-hour appointment, patients can leave our office with a brilliant new smile. For those who prefer to whiten their teeth in the privacy of their own homes, Derman Dentistry also offers take-home whitening kits, which gradually whiten teeth and produce similarly outstanding results. One of our knowledgeable dental professionals is happy to recommend a teeth whitening treatment that best suits your needs.
Porcelain veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surfaces of discolored, chipped, broken, or misaligned teeth. The durable porcelain used to craft veneers strongly resembles your natural teeth and can conceal virtually any dental flaw. The treatment generally takes two appointments – the first for the preparation of the tooth and the second for the placement of the veneers. During the time between dental visits, your porcelain veneers will be custom-crafted in a lab according to precise specifications provided by Dr. Derman. Porcelain veneers make it possible for patients with aesthetically flawed teeth to enjoy gorgeous, natural-looking smiles once again.
Dental bonding is an excellent way to conceal gaps between teeth, as well as chipped, broken, stained, and discolored teeth. One of our skillful dentists will apply a composite bonding material to the tooth and sculpt it to complement the size, shape, and texture of surrounding natural teeth. The procedure is painless and can be completed within a single office visit. The procedure is recommended for patients with minor cosmetic flaws and produces results that can last for years with proper maintenance.
Porcelain dental fillings are an inconspicuous, tooth-colored alternative to the silver amalgam cavity fillings of the past. Porcelain is considered a safe, durable material that blends in well with your teeth. Modern fillings restore strength to damaged teeth while preserving the natural beauty of your smile. Dr. Derman and his team recommend porcelain dental fillings to all patients with new cavities, as well as to patients who wish to replace old silver fillings.
Invisalign® is a virtually unnoticeable solution for straightening teeth, and is potentially ideal for patients who want a discreet alternative to traditional orthodontic appliances. The Invisalign® system uses a series of clear, plastic trays to correct misaligned teeth, rather than obvious and uncomfortable silver braces and brackets. Each aligner in the series is worn for approximately two weeks and then replaced with the next aligner; each one guiding the teeth closer to their optimal position. The aligners are removable, allowing you to easily brush and floss. Plus, you won’t have to sacrifice some of your favorite foods, like apples or popcorn. Dr. Derman and his dental team can help correct alignment problems for patients more quickly, easily, and painlessly than ever before. During a consultation with one of our accomplished dentists, we can determine which orthodontic treatment works best for your needs or the needs of a family member.
