At Greyling Dental we believe everyone deserves a smile they can feel confident about. With advancements in cosmetic dentistry, a great smile is possible for everyone.
Cosmetic Dentistry improves the appearance and function of your teeth, gums and smile. Often we use a combination of procedures to achieve the desired results. We offer the following services:
With Smile Design we start by taking photographs of you and your mouth and make a model of your teeth. Then we assess how we can improve your smile. We review the different options with you and determine the best course of action to give you the smile you want.
Bonding involves the direct application of a composite/resin material to your front teeth to improve your smile. Recent advances have increased the strength, durability, and longevity of these restorations. Outstanding effects can be achieved through bonding, including teeth lightening, closing spaces between teeth, making teeth appear straighter, repairing chips and cracks, etc. It is then polished to give the appearance of natural tooth structure.
Our advanced in-office whitening system uses enhanced chemical activation that whitens your teeth without heat, lasers or ultra-violet rays. This procedure takes a little more than an hour and is a great way to whiten your teeth quickly before important occasions. Also, custom bleaching trays are available for those who like to whiten or touch-up at their leisure at home.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to your teeth that can enhance your smile by changing the color or shape of your teeth. While they are not suitable for every patient, veneers are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving the front teeth, including diastemas (spaces between teeth), broken or chipped teeth, unsightly, stained, or washed-out fillings, permanently stained or discolored teeth that can't be bleached, or crooked teeth.
One of the great advantages of veneers is that the procedure usually takes only two visits. Veneers can last indefinitely, depending on how well they are taken care of. They are also more resistant to stains and chipping than regular bonding.
Laser Therapy can be used to enhance a smile by recontouring the gum line to create a more esthetic result. In addition, it can be used to remove fibromas and improve and accelerate the healing of ulcers that can be painful.
Six Month Smiles Provider
A revolutionary combination of proven orthodontic techniques, modern materials, and innovative thought - Six Month Smiles® utilizes specialized clear braces to gently straighten and align teeth in an average time of just six months.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas): Laughing gas aids in relaxation if you are an extremely nervous patient and is quickly eliminated from the body within 5 minutes after the gas supply is stopped so there is no "hangover" effect and you can safely drive home.
Digital x-rays: The x-rays are captured by a digital sensor and transferred immediately to the computer. This reduces processing time and most importantly, reduces a patient's radiation exposure.
Intraoral Camera: This allows the dentist and the patient to view a magnified picture of the teeth and gums. With this small camera we are able to take pictures and show you what we see in your mouth to allow you to better understand and become more involved in your oral health care. Also, it's a great way to see before and after pictures of teeth that have been restored!
