A Perfect Smile With Cosmetic Dentistry Services Near Merrifield, VA
We’ve worked hard to become the area’s top-rated dental practice. One of the things that set us apart from a lot of our competition is the fact that we offer a full range of cosmetic dentistry services near Merrifield, VA, in addition to providing all the general dentistry care that you and your family rely on.
If your smile isn’t everything you want it to be, we can help you change that. We bring the same level of professionalism and cutting edge technology to our cosmetic services that we do to our general dentistry.
In terms of building your perfect smile, there are two major components to consider: Straightening your teeth and whitening your teeth. We offer a surprising number of treatments relating to both, and we’ll talk about them in more detail just below.
Teeth Straightening Options
When people hear the term teeth straightening, it immediately brings to mind visions of braces, and almost nobody likes braces. We completely understand, which is why we offer not one, but two fantastic alternatives to conventional braces.
The Six Month Smiles Program
Conventional braces have two big problems. They’re highly visible, and they’re slow. It can take up to two years for conventional braces to straighten your teeth. The reason this program is one of the more popular of our cosmetic dentistry services near Merrifield, VA, is that it sidesteps both of those issues.
As the name of the program indicates, the braces used here do the work of straightening your teeth much more quickly than conventional braces do, but how is this accomplished?
The answer lies in the fact that the braces used here don’t try to straighten your slow-moving back teeth, focusing only on the ones people see when you smile. By taking your back teeth out of the equation, you get the results you’re looking for much more quickly.
Even better, these braces closely mirror the natural coloration of your teeth, so you’re not wearing a gleaming mouthful of metal. True, they’re still visible, but they’re not nearly as visible, which means you’ll be a whole lot less self-conscious while you’re wearing them.
The Invisalign Program
This is cutting edge teeth straightening technology. They’re not braces at all, but rather a series of custom fitting caps designed to be worn in sequence that serve to progressively straighten your teeth.
There are several things to like about Invisalign, but the two biggest are these: First, they’re virtually invisible, which means that you won’t feel self-conscious while wearing them. That’s important, but what makes most of our patients smile is the second feature. You can take them out of your mouth and put them back in all by yourself. In fact, it’s easy to do.
Think about the flexibility that gives you. If you want to go out to dinner one evening and you’d rather not be bothered by your caps, just take them out before you leave and put them back in when you get home. No braces, not even the ones used in the Six Month Smiles program allow you to do that!
That feature alone is one of the reasons this is rapidly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services near Merrifield, VA that we offer.
Teeth Whitening Treatments
We understand that where dental care is concerned and where cosmetic dentistry, in particular, is concerned, there are no cookie cutter solutions. That’s why we offer not one, but three different treatment options available. Here they are:
In-Office Whitening Treatment
Our Zoom! In-Office whitening treatment is easily the most often utilized of the cosmetic dentistry services near Merrifield, VA we offer. It’s easy to understand why. After all, no other whitening treatment offers faster results.
In the space of a single office visit, this treatment will whiten your teeth by up to eight shades. How good is that? To give you an idea, know that you’d have to use conventional, over the counter whitening products for up to two months to see similar results. Who wants to wait two months to see impressive results when you can have them in about an hour?
The Whitening for Life Program
Are you the type of person who likes to take control of things? If so, you’re going to love this program. When you sign up for it, the first thing we’ll do is have you come into the office so we can take an impression of your teeth.
We’ll use that impression to create a set of custom bleaching trays for you. That process takes about a week, and as soon as we’ve got the trays in hand, we’ll ask you to come back into the office so we can give them to you, along with a tube of bleaching gel and an instruction booklet that details its use.
After that, you’re all set. You have everything you need to bleach your teeth any time you like, with no appointment needed and no schedules to keep.
Best of all though, as long as you stay current with your preventive care visits, we’ll give you another tube of bleaching gel every six months, for free, for life, or for as long as you choose to remain in the program.
The Kor Whitening System
This is our most powerful whitening treatment option, designed to tackle deep, persistent stains that don’t respond well to other treatment options. It works by restoring your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, and unlike the other two we talked about, its effects are entirely permanent.
The bottom line is, whatever your needs and desires are where straightening and whitening your teeth are concerned on the road to building the smile you’ve always wanted, we’ve got you covered. Give our office a call today.
