Whenever a patient comes in and wants to improve their smile, we give them all the options. Number one, sometimes it's just a simple bonding, could be a direct bonding which is accomplished in one step. Sometimes it's whitening. Whitening has evolved a lot over the last decade. We have something called Zoom which is an in office procedure, for some people who just don't like wearing trays or gel in their mouth. The in office takes about an hour and we have great results with it. And that's improved tremendously over the years, there's less sensitivity and better results.We also have something called a Gold Tray, which is like a Crest white strip, which is very effective for whitening teeth.
So that's your first step. Direct bonding is a one day procedure. If it's something that's more major, we do what's called a diagnostic wax up, where we create a stone model of what we feel like the teeth should look like. We use that as a guide to make temporaries and to show the patient what they can look like. It's the preview.
We also have something called Trial Smile now. What a trial smile is, we do a wax up of what the teeth should look like, if the teeth are worn down or discolored and we can put a tooth colored material right over their teeth, and they can take a look at it and see what it would look like with ideal smile. We take a photo of that. If they want to they can go home, usually we take it off before they leave that day. But it's a nice preview and it gives them an idea what they could look like.
We can provide you with teeth in one day using full-mouth dental implants, a procedure during which our dentists attach a full arch of replacement teeth to just four implants. You can get it in your upper jaw, your lower jaw, or both. This offers lots of advantages over more traditional dental implant placement:
- Because you receive your implants and teeth replacements on the same day, you’ll never be without your smile.
- There’s no delay in resuming normal oral function.
- Your face will have a more youthful look – one that will last, as your implants will keep your jawbone strong and healthy.
- The procedure is faster and typically more affordable than replacing teeth with multiple dental implant procedures.
- The treatment leaves the palate in your upper jaw exposed, which allows you to more fully taste your food and enjoy your meals more.
- You won’t have to worry about removing your teeth for cleaning. You’ll just brush and floss as usual to keep your teeth clean.
If you’re at all nervous about the procedure, you needn’t be! You can choose from two kinds of dental sedation. To meet with one of our implant dentists, call Ned W. Windmiller Distinctive Dentistry at (651) 413-9860.
Technology Ensures You Get Precise Dental Implants Placement
Careful placement is essential to the success of a same-day implant procedure. Our dentists angle your dental implants in a way that enables them to support an arch of replacement teeth in either your upper or lower jaw. Before placement, they use computer imaging and digital radiography to carefully plan your procedure and find the best sites for implant placement.
The digital technology also helps us create specifications for the replacement teeth you’ll get during your procedure. The teeth will look natural, thanks to our partnership with Valley Dental Arts, a top dental lab. You can even visit the laboratory to collaborate with their technicians on your perfect smile.
