Cosmetic Dentistry in Acton, MA
Invisalign in Acton
Are you looking for a straighter and healthier smile? We offer Invisalign to patients in Acton, MA. This is an alternative to traditional metal braces that gradually straightens crooked teeth. This treatment uses a series of clear aligners that shift teeth over a series of months.
Invisalign is a faster and more comfortable alternative to metal braces. Traditional metal braces can pinch the gum tissue surrounding teeth.
The average time of treatment with Invisalign is twelve months or less, and metal braces often have an average treatment time that spans several years. The aligners used in Invisalign treatment are also clear so they are less noticeable than traditional braces. You can remove Invisalign aligners and clean them for a more efficient treatment process.
Porcelain Veneers in Acton
Do you want to enhance the aesthetics of your smile? Porcelain veneers in Acton are a cosmetic option that can improve the function and health of your teeth. Your dentist can also color match them to your teeth for a more natural looking restoration. Porcelain veneers can correct teeth that are discolored, misshapen, chipped, cracked, or broken.
During treatment, the dentist will take dental impressions of your teeth so that the veneers fit onto teeth properly. Then we will send the specifications of your veneer shape and color to a dental lab for fabrication. When the dental veneers are complete, we will clean and polish the surface of your teeth. Then carefully bond the veneers to the teeth.
The last we will do is make any final adjustments to ensure that the veneers fit comfortably.
Teeth Whitening in Acton
Do you have discolored, stained, or yellowed teeth? Are you looking for effective teeth whitening treatment in Acton? Those who have tried teeth whitening strips found along with other less effective teeth whitening methods can benefit from in-office or take-home teeth whitening strips.
Whitening teeth reverses the effects of aging on teeth, improves tooth health, and may remove tough stains. We can address discoloration from by smoking, drinks like soda, tea, and coffee, and certain medications with Zoom!® or our take home teeth whitening kit. Professional teeth whitening treatments are long lasting with touch ups.
Cosmetic Dentistry FAQs
What are the differences between Invisalign and braces?
Invisalign is extremely useful for esthetics and simple dental issues. Braces are functional and work efficiently for fixing complex tooth issues, spacing, and bite problems. Braces are known to be more effective and faster at fixing tooth issues than Invisalign.
What is a cosmetic dentist?
A cosmetic dentist has the same basic training as any general dentist. They also receive supplemental training and education. Cosmetic dentists’ primary focus is on the esthetics of one’s teeth. They commonly work on teeth whitening and porcelain veneers. If you are a patient who is primarily concerned with the visuals of your teeth, seeing a cosmetic dentist is a wise decision to receive the treatment that best suits your needs.
Are clear braces less effective than metal braces?
Clear braces are discrete and effective for treating crooked teeth without the visual discomfort of metal braces. They are also removable, reducing the risk of cavities associated with traditional metal braces. They take the same amount of time to treat your teeth as metal braces, so if esthetics is a concern, clear braces may be a good choice for you.
What is the most popular cosmetic dental procedure?
The most popular cosmetic dentistry procedure is teeth whitening. It enables individuals to modify their smiles in a noticeable way without having to endure intrusive procedures.
What common dental problems are suitable for cosmetic dentistry?
The most common dental problems that cosmetic dentistry addresses are crooked teeth and discolored teeth. Cosmetic dentistry may also be used to address missing teeth, chipped teeth, and gummy smiles.
Is there a cosmetic fix for receding gums?
Gum contouring is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for receding gums. In this procedure, tissue from a patient’s mouth roof is removed and used as a graft to cover tooth roots that have become exposed as a result of gum recession.
