While today there is a greater emphasis on health and beauty than in years past, it’s important to straighten crooked teeth to achieve the desired esthetics as well as maintain good oral health. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to care for and clean, which may lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and possibly tooth loss. Misaligned bites can also cause abnormal wear on tooth surfaces and lead to problems with structure bone, jaw joints (TMJ – temporomandibular joint) and gum tissue.
In addition, correcting and beautifying a smile may give you a boost of confidence! An attractive smile is an asset, an important form of communication, and essential in a competitive job market.
Combination of Techniques to provide the best Cosmetic Dentistry Rochester NY
Today, using cosmetic techniques, esthetic materials, and orthodontics, we can correct teeth that are discolored, misaligned, twisted, unevenly spaced, too long or short, worn down – even those that are “missing” – with procedures that are used singularly, or in a combination of techniques and procedures. Also, using non-invasive surgery, Dr. Heinle can improve your “gummy smile” by reshaping your natural gum line. This technique allows for a more even and attractive smile.
Orthodontic treatment for adults has become much more commonplace. In fact, there is no age limit in receiving orthodontic treatment. Braces today can be clear or tooth-colored so they appear less noticeable. We offer clear, removable aligners that slowly over time move and straighten your teeth. This system is a great solution for adults or young adults with less significant need for traditional metal or full-coverage braces. It’s never too late for straighter teeth!
An easy solution to improve the color and shape of your teeth is laminate veneers, a durable, thin restorative layer of porcelain that is positioned over existing teeth. We use porcelain for veneers because of its strength and translucent quality that resembles natural teeth. Veneers are custom made to fit your natural tooth and maintain tooth structure, and allow for perfect, white, beautifully shaped teeth. Veneers are a perfect solution for restoring fractured or chipped teeth, crooked teeth, or unsightly gaps. They can also be used to make your teeth appear larger or wider, straighter, and more natural-looking.
A porcelain veneer is a thin shell that is custom-made to fit on your natural tooth. Veneers can look like your natural teeth, without the imperfections. Teeth can be “re-shaped” by contouring tooth enamel, the outer layer of the tooth structure. Crooked or misshapen teeth or chipped and worn teeth can be restored using veneers. Gaps in teeth can be closed, or teeth that are broken, chipped or stained can be corrected with veneers. They are strong and long-lasting and have a natural look and don’t stain easily. Also, less tooth enamel is removed than a crown – a more conservative option for cosmetic restorations. Veneers are not always a good choice for patients who clench or grind their teeth because the thin veneers may chip or break. Wearing a mouthguard at night may help if you do have veneers. Although we remove as little enamel as possible while preparing the tooth for a veneer, the process cannot be undone once this enamel is removed. Also, veneers may become loose over time – in this case new veneers may be required.View Testimonials
Teeth bleaching/whitening Rochester NY
Our in-house bleaching treatment is safe, comfortable and long-lasting. We apply the bleaching material directly to your teeth while protecting the delicate surrounding gum tissue. We then introduce a light source that safely and comfortably activates the bleaching material. After this initial treatment, we give you custom-made bleaching trays along with carpules of self-activating bleach material for you to use at home to achieve your desired brightness level. Some foods and drinks lead to staining or darkening of your natural teeth such as tea, coffee and red wine – however, it’s so convenient for you to touch-up at home!
