Making Smiles Shine!
Realigning your teeth and/or jaw can not only change your appearance, but can also prevent pain, headaches, and other health problems down the road. At All About Smiles, we can diagnose, prevent and correct misaligned teeth or bite patterns, typically using braces as the solution. This can also be a long-term process, but will leave you looking and feeling incredible with your brand new smile.
Invisalign, which uses clear aligners, is a great alternative to braces. Without any wires or brackets, this method is discreet, yet highly effective. Depending on the current alignment of your teeth, your Invisalign treatment could be done in as little as six months. Another benefit is that the aligners are removable, which means no food restrictions – enjoy all the popcorn you want! To find out if Invisalign is suitable for you, contact us for a consultation.
To ensure comfort and ease during any dental procedure, we will provide you with Oral or Inhalation Sedation. The first type is taken orally – either in pill or syrup form – and will provide a moderate level of sedation, meaning you will feel groggy yet will remain conscious. We often use this type of sedation with our younger patients.
Inhalation Sedation, sometimes referred to as “Laughing Gas,” uses a nose mask to deliver nitrous oxide to you in a controlled manner. This type of sedation will have very similar effects to the oral variation, however you should be able to drive yourself home after the effects have worn off.
Our oral examinations include your routine dental cleaning, x-rays, and any other necessary procedures or treatments. After we ensure your teeth and gums are in good health, we will give your smile a good clean by scraping away plaque, brushing and flossing your teeth, finishing off the appointment with a fluoride application and/or rinse. If more serious issues are noticed during your examination, such as cavities, we will go through the necessary procedure and schedule a follow-up appointment.
Whether due to old age, disease or trauma, missing teeth can have a huge impact on our dental health and self-confidence. Let us help restore that bright, beautiful smile! After a series of x-rays, we will first put in the implant beneath your gum tissue, followed by a second procedure to attach the artificial teeth to the implant. The entire process start to finish may take several visits, but will leave you with durable, natural looking teeth.
We can perform various aesthetic procedures to enhance both the look and health of your smile. These treatments include Professional Teeth Whitening, Veneers, Gum Contouring, and more. If you have any concerns or insecurities about your smile, let us know – we can help!
