Cosmetic Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions

Can Invisalign fix complex dental issues such as overcrowding or bite problems?

Yes, Invisalign can address most orthodontic concerns, including overcrowding, misalignment, gaps, and bite issues. While it may not be suitable for every complex case, Invisalign has evolved to offer more comprehensive treatment options. Your dentist or orthodontist will evaluate your specific dental condition and determine if Invisalign is the right choice for achieving the desired results.

How do dentures work?

Dentures are removable replacement teeth. A partial denture replaces one or more missing teeth. A complete or full denture replaces all your upper or lower teeth. One of our dentists will take impressions of your mouth for a custom denture that fits and functions well.
Benefits of dentures:
• Complete your smile – You can enjoy socializing, smiling, and laughing without feeling self-conscious about missing teeth.
• Chew more effectively – Enjoy and digest your food better by replacing missing teeth.
• Improve your speech – Socializing and joining conversations will become more comfortable because teeth help you form words and speak clearly.

How does Invisalign ® work to straighten teeth?

To help you get a more beautiful smile, Invisalign® uses a series of clear, removable aligners to move your teeth gradually. You wear a set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each set of aligners with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until they reach the position the doctor has prescribed for you.

How does KoR Whitening work?

KoR Whitening utilizes a specially formulated gel and a customized tray system. The gel contains a powerful bleaching agent that breaks down deep stains on the tooth enamel. The custom trays ensure the gel is applied correctly and remains in contact with the teeth, allowing optimal whitening results.

How long does the Invisalign ® treatment process take, and what can I expect during that time?

An average Invisalign ® course of treatment takes about a year. You’ll receive a new set of custom-molded clear aligners at regular intervals to continue the straightening process. The total number of clear aligners is specific to you, and the doctor determines your course of treatment.

How long does the KoR Whitening procedure take, and how long do the results last?

The length of the KoR Whitening procedure can vary depending on the individual's specific needs and the desired level of whitening. Typically, it involves several in-office sessions and may be supplemented with at-home treatments. The results of KoR Whitening are long-lasting, especially with proper oral care and regular dental check-ups.

Is KoR Whitening suitable for individuals with tooth sensitivity?

Yes, KoR Whitening is designed to minimize sensitivity. The advanced formulation of the gel includes desensitizing agents that help reduce tooth sensitivity during and after the treatment. However, it's always best to consult your dentist to determine the best approach if you have pre-existing tooth sensitivity.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of customized dental porcelain that our dentists can bond to the fronts of teeth. Porcelain is more durable and long-lasting than dental bonding. You can get one or more veneers for imperfections that show when you smile.
Porcelain veneer benefits:
• Gaps – Close spaces between teeth with natural-looking results.
• Misalignment – Help your teeth look straighter without months or years of orthodontic treatment.
• Discoloration – Hide spots or stains that teeth whitening cannot resolve.
• Size or shape – Improve teeth that are too small, too large, or uneven.
Getting porcelain veneers takes at least two visits. However, our dentists’ priority is to ensure you will love your smile makeover, even if it takes a few more appointments.

What are the advantages of choosing Invisalign ® over traditional braces?

Invisalign ® offers several advantages over traditional braces. The aligners are nearly invisible and removable for easy eating, brushing, and flossing. Invisalign ® also lacks sharp wires and requires fewer dental visits while still achieving predictable results, making it a preferred choice for orthodontic treatment.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a series of dental crowns connected at their sides to replace one or more missing teeth. The end crowns cover your natural teeth to anchor the bridge, and the middle crowns replace the missing teeth.
Dental bridge benefits:
• Complete your smile – Fill the gaps from missing teeth and feel more confident about smiling.
• Improve function – Speaking and chewing are easier when teeth are intact. A dental bridge helps you maintain teeth function and supports digestion.
• Preserve tooth position – Spaces left from missing teeth cause neighboring teeth to drift. A dental bridge can help maintain teeth alignment.

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding seamlessly conceals imperfections in teeth, such as small gaps, chips, cracks, and discoloration. Teeth bonding is an affordable and quick way to refresh your smile.

What is the ideal age to whiten your teeth?

The ideal age to whiten is 14. But even if you’re 90, KoR Whitening is perfect for you because KoR rejuvenates the youthful ability of your teeth to absorb oxygen. Oxygen from KoR Whitening gel is absorbed deeply into the tooth, dissolving stain molecules.
