Over time, our smiles often become dull and may lose their luster. Teeth stains, chips, cracks, and misalignment hinder the appearance of our teeth. Fortunately, at The Silverstrom Group, we offer the latest in cosmetic dentistry to address common dental imperfections. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, answer frequently asked questions about our cosmetic dental procedures. Cosmetic Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions Questions: Does The Silverstrom Group offer professional teeth whitening? Answer: Yes. In fact, we offer our patients two methods of teeth whitening. Our in-office procedure, Zoom! Whitening, brightens smiles in under an hour using a powerful gel and special light. Our home-based whitener, Kor Deep Whitening Deep Bleaching, erases stains in about two weeks using a custom-made whitening tray and bleaching gel. Both systems can whiten smiles by multiple shades. Questions: How does Invisalign work? Answer: Invisalign corrects misalignment without the use of metal brackets and wires. Instead, patients wear a series of removable and clear plastic aligners. Invisalign provides practically invisible smile improvement. The entire process usually takes a year for adults and around 18 months for teens. Questions: What smile issues can porcelain veneers address? Answer: Veneers are thin shells of special dental porcelain placed onto the front of a patient’s teeth. Porcelain veneers are custom-made and allow your Livingston NJ cosmetic dentists to correct the appearance of misalignment, mask permanent teeth stains, repair damaged teeth, and close gaps between teeth. Questions: What constitutes a smile makeover? Answer: A smile makeover involves using a combination of cosmetic and restorative procedures to completely transform a patient’s smile. Smile makeovers can be conservative or extensive, depending on a patient’s needs.
