Get the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted!
Chelsea Comprehensive Dental performs several cosmetic dental procedures that will help you improve the look and function of your teeth. Read the descriptions below for some of our most common procedures and schedule an appointment to learn about how we can help you.
Porcelain veneers are one of the most exciting and rewarding techniques in dentistry today! Smiles can be completely transformed completely in a short amount of time with veneers. Porcelain veneers are handcrafted, custom-made, thin shells of dental porcelain placed on your teeth. They are stain resistant and custom shaded to blend with surrounding teeth. Veneers can dramatically transform your smile by correcting issues like:
- Poorly Shaped Teeth
- Stains and Discoloration
How we can help: Dr. Draiss will meet with you in a consultation to discuss your ideal smile and then create a custom design for your porcelain veneers. Teeth are then prepared to allow adequate room for the porcelain veneers without making the teeth bulky. Temporary veneers will be placed while the dental lab fabricates you one-of-a-kind restorations. Once the veneers are ready, you will return to our office. Dr. Draiss will then remove your temporary veneers and place the final restorations.
Chips, stains, gaps, and cracks on your front teeth can easily detract from an otherwise attractive appearance. If you’re hesitant about investing in dental veneers, consider cosmetic bonding instead. Although bonding doesn’t last as long as veneers, it is generally faster and less expensive than porcelain veneers.
How we can help: Dr. Draiss will prepare the teeth to allow adequate room to add composite resin without adding bulk to the tooth. The desired shade of composite resin is then placed, shaped, light cured and polished.
You may associate braces with middle school or high school students, but more adults than ever are turning to orthodontics to improve their bite and reposition their teeth for functional and cosmetic reasons. Dr. Draiss is trained to treat misaligned teeth with Invisalign®.
Invisalign® uses a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually move teeth into the desired position. Invisalign® can be used to correct crowding, spacing, bite issues and cosmetic issues. Check out the Invisalign® website @ www.invisalign.com for more information and give Dr. Draiss a call for a free consult to see if Invisalign may be right for you.
When performed by a dentist, teeth whitening, or bleaching is quite effective. Your dentist can administer a higher concentration of whitening solution than over-the-counter systems resulting in more dramatic outcomes. Chelsea Comprehensive Dental offers several types of teeth whitening options. Call our office today to find out which option will fit your lifestyle and help you reach your whitening goals.
How we can help: Dr. Draiss uses the KoR system as his in-office whitening system. This system utilizes both take-home whitening trays and in-office treatment to yield dramatic results.
For those who prefer to whiten their teeth at home, we offer a take-home kit that can do the job in about two weeks.
We also offer a take-home system that uses pre-filled trays to whiten your teeth. This system is called Opalescence Go. Opalescence Go pre-filled trays can be worn at home for 30 minutes to an hour at a time. Opalescence Go is a great alternative for those who are looking for something to use that is quick and does not involve any lab work or impressions.
