At St. Mary’s Dental, we can renew, restore, and recreate your smile with our cosmetic dentistry options. Using a myriad of techniques, such as teeth whitening or cosmetic bonding, we can improve a dull, yellowed smile and correct chips, fractures, gaps, and misshapen teeth.
For your convenience and service, your Mechanicsville cosmetic dentist offers both in-office teeth whitening with Zoom! and at-home whitening with Opalescence. Zoom! is a popular and reliable system for whitening teeth in just under an hour.
While you lie back in the chair, we’ll apply the Zoom! whitening gel to your teeth. Then, a special light is shone on your teeth to activate and speed the whitening process. The bleaching ingredients in the gel will break up any stains on or below the surface of your teeth. At the end of the treatment, your smile can be as much as eight shades brighter.
Some patients prefer to whiten their teeth at home. With Opalescence, you can receive the same whitening results as you would with an in-office treatment. The only difference is that the results appear more gradually. Each night for two weeks, you’ll fill your custom-fitted trays with professional strength whitening gel and wear them as instructed. Then, remove the trays, rinse your mouth with warm water and brush your teeth as usual. Results will appear immediately with the greatest whitening achieved after two weeks.
Full Smile Reconstruction
If your oral health is in peril and your teeth are worn, broken, or badly damaged, we can also do a full-mouth or smile reconstruction. A full-mouth reconstruction combines restorative dentistry and cosmetic dentistry options to return health, beauty, and function to your smile.
All cosmetic dentistry procedures begin with an assessment of your current dental health. It may be necessary to heal gum disease with periodontal therapy, or straighten crooked dentition with Invisalign/ClearCorrect. This orthodontic treatment system uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into their proper position. Many adults who did not wear traditional braces as children opt for Invisalign/ClearCorrect.
If you have infections in your teeth, we may also need to do root canals. This procedure allows Dr. McCray and Dr. Demer to remove and clean the inner-most portion of the tooth and replace it with a biocompatible material that will resist infection. Then, the tooth is fitted with a filling and dental crown for strength, appearance, and protection.
