Do you go through life hiding your smile because of discoloration or crooked teeth? Cosmetic and orthodontic treatments are so common these days that you probably do not know anyone who hasn’t had something done to improve the look of their teeth.
Cosmetic treatments can also help prevent bigger oral health issues down the road and save you money.
During your first appointment with us, we can discuss all of your cosmetic and orthodontic concerns with Dr. Wong, and he will be able to determine what cosmetic procedures are right for you.
Teeth whitening is a simple and painless way to lighten teeth that have been stained or discolored by age, food, drink, and smoking. This procedure can be done in our office or in the convenience of your home.
Veneers are thin, tooth-colored shells that are bonded onto the front surfaces of teeth to help restore damaged, discolored, poorly shaped, or misaligned teeth. Unlike crowns, veneers require minimal tooth structure to be removed from the surface of the tooth.
Tooth-colored composite fillings are now widely used instead of amalgam (silver) fillings to repair teeth with cavities as well as to replace old defective fillings. Dr. Wong offers composite fillings to repair chipped, broken, or discolored teeth. This type of filling is also very useful to fill in gaps and to protect sensitive, exposed root surfaces caused by gum recession.
Many patients believe that removing a tooth that has problems is the solution, but what is not realized is that extracting (pulling) a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth.
Dr. Wong offers the revolutionary All-on-X dental implants for patients seeking an alternative to traditional bridges and dentures. The All-on-X implant supported dentures replaces patients’ missing teeth within the time frame of one day. There are several benefits of the All-on-X dental implants for patients who want to replace missing teeth. When teeth are not replaced, your gum tissue and jawbone begin to deteriorate, and remaining teeth will move around. This can cause discomfort, pain, and lower self-confidence.
Orthodontics have become more appealing to adult patients who want to improve the structure of their mouth and straighten their teeth. Dr. Wong utilizes state of the art materials and procedures, which are less visible and more effective than brackets and wires. In addition, patients can also choose to have their teeth straightened using Invisalign, which are custom-made, clear, removable aligners that require no braces.
