Great Ways to Improve Your Smile # 5

Braces
While orthodontic work that begins while a child is growing helps produce optimal results, that doesn’t mean that adults can’t have braces. Thanks to advances in orthodontic treatments, metal brackets are not your only option. Removable aligners, or invisible braces,î or clear plastic brackets can all be used to straighten crooked or crowded teeth.

A Crown May Be Necessary
Crowns are sometimes necessary to save a broken or worn-down tooth when a simple filling will not restore it to full functionality. A crown will save and even add strength to the damaged tooth. We use the most advanced materials to make your crown. Our crowns are made of the best-quality materials with e.max™. It looks so natural, you won’t be able to distinguish it from a real tooth. If teeth have been lost or are unable to be saved, a bridge might be the best solution for replacement. We use high-quality materials to custom make your bridge.

Great Ways to Improve Your Smile # 4

Bonding
Not happy with the way your teeth look? Bonding may be the answer. For some, it can help restore the natural look of your teeth. Bonding is a process where the dentist attaches or ìbondsî materials directly to your tooth. Your natural tooth enamel and dentin are fused together with bonding materials such as porcelain and resins to create a strong structure that looks great.

Laser Dental Treatment

Laser Dentistry – The Future is Already HereLaser Dentistry Collinsville CT
We feature laser technology both for cosmetic treatments and preventative or restorative care. The use of this FDA-approved laser is safe, effective, and virtually painless. The best aspect of this high-tech tool is that many treatments are now easier! What used to require incisions with scalpels can now be completed more efficiently and quickly. Recovery times are faster, with little to no post-op discomfort.

Another use of the laser that produces amazing results is crown lengthening. A tooth that is broken off below the gumline can easily be accessed for repair with a laser. Often patients have teeth that have been worn down over time, and they appear shorter in comparison to other teeth. In such a case, or with uneven gums or too much gum visible in the smile, we can simply use the laser to re-form the gum line. We call this procedure a “smile lift” and help you regain a gorgeous smile.

Another nearly miraculous use of the laser is healing inflamed gum tissue. We can clean and re-contour tissue that is painful at crowns, canker sores, cold sores, and ulcerous tissue in the mouth. This amazing high-tech tool brings relief instantly to sufferers.

Family Dentistry

Kids Dentist Collinsville CT
Building Trust with Attentive Care
Making our youngest patients comfortable goes well beyond making sure they have toys and blankets. The Lifetime Family Dentistry team is trained to make every moment of their visit a positive one. We listen to their concerns and interact with them directly so they feel special. Reducing bright lights, letting them hug a special friend (stuffed animal), and even using laughing gas if needed will all help eliminate any nervousness about the care they receive. Every treatment is administered with a gentle touch, and every patient leaves with a bright, clean, happy smile!

When Should Your Child Start?

The American Dental Association recommends the first appointment occur soon after the first baby tooth comes in. We see infants, toddlers, children of every age, all the way through adolescence and into adulthood.

Great Ways to Improve Your Smile # 3

Veneers
Veneers are thin shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. Unlike bonding, it is necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your tooth to accommodate the shell. Based on a model of your mouth, they are meant to look like your natural teeth.
