For years, you may have taken your perfect smile for granted, but with time comes the wear. Our teeth can begin to look dingy, stained, uneven, or chipped. As we realize that our teeth have lived life hard, and that time is beginning to show, you may begin to hide your smile. Problems such as natural imperfections, accidental damage, or food stains can cause embarrassment and even social anxiety. We don't want you to dim your smile because of your teeth. At Dr. Martin, we can fix teeth that are stained, chipped, or crooked, and we may be able to do this faster and easier than you think.
The team at Dr. Martin is here to not only restore your health and function, but to give you the smile you have always wanted. When chipping and cracking has made your teeth appear unsightly, we can restore them quickly and seamlessly with dental bonding.
Whitening your teeth is a dental cosmetic procedure that can have a huge impact. Our teeth are in constant use, and to a certain extent, we abuse them. Coffee, tea, tobacco and soda stain our teeth, as does many different food products. We can make your teeth several shades whiter, giving them a cleaner look. Many patients are surprised that they even get a younger look. Whitening your teeth is one of the simplest, and yet noticeable, dental procedures to enhance your smile. Patients love this procedure because whitening, or bleaching, is a non-invasive and simple dental treatment that will enhance the color of your tooth enamel and give you a smile that is whiter and brighter.
We can cover teeth that are chipped, fractured, too big, too small, crooked, or even gapped. Tooth veneers are a wildly popular technique for giving you the look you want simply and easily. No braces, no crowns. Tooth veneers uses a very thin porcelain shell that is customized to give you the look and fit you want. Though thin, these porcelain shells are strong and durable, lasting most patients many years. We bond your veneers directly on the outside surface of your teeth, generally only the front eight teeth that are most visible. Some patients prefer the added strength of having an encasing around the whole tooth, not just the face, in that case we can give you the look you want with dental crowns.
Clear, plastic aligners are a modern take on braces. Invisalign is a cosmetic dental system that can straighten your teeth. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign provides the patient with an entire series of clear, strong medical grade plastic aligners that are virtually invisible to anyone who sees them in your mouth. The aligners are custom-made to fit while shifting your teeth. The average treatment time using the Invisalign system is just one year.
Dental ImplantsWe can restore teeth that are missing, or provide you a post to attach a dental appliance, with the placement of a dental implant. A dental implant is a titanium metal post that is designed to replace missing teeth, by placing the implant directly into your jawbone. Titanium is a metal with the unique ability of being biocompatible, meaning your living tissue will not reject it, and in fact it will grow around it, making it strong and firm in its placement. Once the post is firmly in place, we can place one of multiple dental prosthetics on top, including a single dental crown, or provide a strong post for a dental bridge or denture. Dental implants are considered a permanent solution, their lifespan is greater than 20 years and improving more each day.
