Whitening the teeth is a simple, effective way to transform your smile from drab to fantastic in a short period of time. Dr. Lim offers teeth whitening treatments in our office and provides whitening trays and bleaching solutions for at-home whitening.
Many people reach for over-the-counter whitening products before contacting their dentist for professional help. Such products may contain abrasives that remove only mild surface stains, or low amounts of peroxide, a bleaching agent.
At a young age, our teeth are healthy white. But over time the enamel coating the tooth is so slowly worn down. Causing our teeth to become stained and yellow, which is why teeth whitening is becoming increasingly popular today. There are a few methods for whitening. They include at home and in the office. With in-office treatments, you will see faster results, receive the safest treatment for bleaching the teeth, and yield the whitest smile. So, don’t settle for teeth that have become stained from years of coffee drinking, tobacco use, or just aging. Ask your dentist about whitening options that may be right for you.
To get the results you really want takes professional grade whitening agents, such as what can only be obtained from your dentist. To enhance your smile quickly and with lasting results, contact us for your teeth whitening consultation.
Advances in materials have brought about significant benefits in tooth restoration. Now, fillings no longer have to diminish the brilliance of your smile. Dr. Lim offers tooth-colored fillings that are both attractive and strong. Composite filling material has been extensively researched and is shown to carry 90 percent of the strength of natural teeth. Even more importantly, this material expands and contracts in a similar fashion to natural enamel, which means there is no concern over causing tooth fractures, such as with amalgam fillings.
Bonding is one of the fastest, most affordable ways to transform the smile. This dental treatment applies precisely colored composite material to a tooth to increase its attractiveness. Teeth that have been chipped or cracked respond well to bonding. This treatment can also address discoloration in a tooth, or space between teeth. Completed in a single visit, the material is colored, applied to the tooth, shaped, and polished for a completely natural aesthetic.
Straightening your teeth no longer has to mean eighteen months or more under cumbersome metal brackets and wires. Invisalign offers teens and adults a whole new discreet way to achieve their most beautiful smiles. This system consists of a series of custom-designed aligner trays, worn all of the time except during meals and oral hygiene activities. Invisalign aligners are clear, strong plastic. No sharp edges to irritate the cheek. Comfortable and effective, Invisalign allows you to maintain the highest possible level of oral health throughout treatment, as teeth can be brushed and flossed daily, without obstacles.
For years, dental veneers have been growing in popularity. These wafer-thin shells are crafted from high-quality porcelain material in a dental lab. Veneers are bonded to the front of teeth that are cosmetically impaired, masking the appearance of gaps, chips, cracks, and even resistant discoloration. In just two visits, your smile can be totally transformed through the placement of customized porcelain veneers. Whether you have one tooth that needs fixing, or you want to experience a smile makeover, veneers offer a great, permanent solution to a compromised smile. Because standard veneers require the slight removal of surface enamel, this is a permanent treatment. Should a veneer be broken at some point, replacement is necessary.
Our patients who desire smile transformation, but do not feel ready to commit to permanent treatment may find their ideal cosmetic enhancement in LUMINEERS. These dental veneers have been specially designed as a fully reversible cosmetic treatment. Crafted of high-quality porcelain material, LUMINEERS are extremely thin, so thin that they lie flush against the gums without having to remove any tooth structure. In just two visits, you can have the smile of your dreams.
Our smiles are an integral part of our overall image. Whether you are a student, a parent, or a working professional, first impressions are made based on appearance, and your smile takes center stage.
