Invisalign® Clear Braces
Invisalign offers an alternative to metal braces for adults and older teens who wish for a more subtle orthodontic treatment. A series of clear plastic aligners can gradually reposition the teeth over the course of 12 to 18 months, on average. Removability adds even more convenience to this treatment option!
Patients who wish for a dramatic smile transformation can benefit from porcelain veneers. These thin coverings are manufactured from dental porcelain, a material that reflects light in the same manner as your natural enamel. What’s more, veneers are customized to fit the precise size, shape, and color that suits your features best — to create a totally natural appearance that we know you will appreciate. Porcelain veneers are placed over the course of two visits to our office.
If you have a damaged or decayed front tooth, you need a restorative solution that blends strength and beauty. Fortunately, metal-free restorations fit the bill! Your cosmetic dentist can have a beautiful ceramic/porcelain crown, bridge, inlay, or onlay manufactured to renew the form and function of your smile at the same time.
Direct bonding is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that your dentist may recommend for imperfect or damaged tooth enamel that is visible when you smile. With the same composite resin used for tooth-colored fillings, your cosmetic dentist can artistically sculpt a new shape for your tooth in a single appointment. The composite resin is applied, reshaped according to your needs, and then hardened under a special light. Direct bonding offers many patients an affordable alternative to porcelain veneers.
If, like many adults, you have noticed your tooth enamel getting darker over time, there is a wonderful solution available from your dentist. At Fairfax Dental Group, we are pleased to offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments with Opalescence and Zoom! Whitening so you can whiten at the pace you’re most comfortable with.
Having a beautiful smile is about more than just your teeth. Patients who have excessive gum tissue or an uneven gumline know that the periodontal tissue also plays a significant role. If you are unhappy with your smile due to the appearance of your gums, your cosmetic dentist can help with gum recontouring. Using modern tools and methods, we can precisely remove any excess tissue and leave just what needs to stay for your most beautiful smile.
