Cosmetic dentistry can improve a person’s oral health in a multitude of ways whether it be for
appearance or a confidence boost. Discolored, chipped, and crooked teeth are all common
dental concerns that can affect the appearance of one’s smile. In most cases cosmetic
treatment can be described as optional and not essential, however there are still many
restorative benefits to the procedures that can be performed.
Veneers are most commonly placed in the cosmetic category due to the ability to “makeover” the appearance of one’s smile. Dental veneers can be considered restorative treatment and prevent further restoration, while removing little-to-no tooth structure. The underlying natural tooth will be prepped by carefully shaving away a portion of the teeth so the ultra-thin shell of the porcelain veneer can be permanently cemented to the facial surface of the teeth.
Restoration Dental Studio is equipped with chairside CAD/CAM technology and can fabricate veneers in one visit, this option allows our office to produce same-day-dentistry for the convenience of our patients without multiple visits or temporary veneers.
Common reasons for Veneers
- Chipped/cracked teeth
- Uneven teeth
- Wear & tear
Whether you want to change the overall appearance of your smile due to color or size, veneers may be an option for you. Schedule a comprehensive exam for an evaluation to go over the best treatment plan for you!
Icon Resin Infiltration: White Spot Treatment
This is a safe and effective minimally invasive restorative treatment that treats white spots on the patients teeth. Treatment is safe for patients as young as 3 years of age and can be done on primary and adult teeth. This procedure replaces the outer existing discolored layer of enamel with a different substance that ultimately results in the removal of white spots creating a clean natural colored tooth. There are a number of prior conditions such as dental trauma, natural defects, or hypocalcification after orthodontic treatment (braces) that can result in enamel busing or better known as “white-spot lesions.” Not all cases are candidates for this treatment as decay can cause more serious underlying issues which may need to be resolved first. In most cases there is a significant cosmetic improvement that can be seen and results can last for many years!
Teeth Whitening: kÖr Whitening™
One of the most common complaints we hear at Restoration Dental Studio from our patients is they are self-conscious about the color of their teeth, they are not white enough. We offer a few whitening options, one being kÖr Whitening.
What is kÖr Whitening™?
kÖr Whitening is one of the world’s most effective teeth whitening systems without using lights or lasers. Offered exclusively through dental professionals, kÖr provides cost effective options for both at home and in office treatments. Here at Restoration Dental Studio, there are four kÖr Whitening options available. kÖr Home and kÖr Max are the most common treatments we use, but there is also kÖr Ultra for difficult cases and kÖr Ultra-T for Tetracycline cases.
What makes kÖr Whitening stand out:
- Continuously refrigerated high potency gels– from manufacturer to the time it is put on the trays, it is refrigerated to maintain the active ingredients effectiveness.
- Kor Seal Trays– these trays are specially designed (after an intraoral scan in office) to seal both saliva and sulcular fluid out of the whitening tray. This provides the Kor Whitening gels 6 to 10 hours of active whitening compared to the typical 25 to 35 minutes of other systems.
- Kor Desensitizer– A very common problem with any whitening system is teeth sensitivity. Kor has developed a desensitizing liquid that is applied prior to bleaching the teeth to eliminate or greatly reduce any sensitivity associated with whitening therapy.
Determining if kÖr Whitening is for you:
Like most treatments, the first thing you need to do is contact Restoration Dental Studio to schedule an exam. Whether you are 14, 94 or somewhere in between, Kor Whitening may still help you achieve the white smile you are wanting. Dr. Svetanoff can assess your dental needs, make sure you are a candidate and her staff can go over which whitening package is best to produce the results you are hoping to achieve.
