Contributed by DentalROI

Teeth WhiteningThere is no shame in admitting your teeth are stained or discolored. If you enjoy chocolate, berries, tea, coffee or wine, your teeth likely have some staining. Do not make the common mistake of attempting to eliminate your tooth stains with alleged teeth whitening solutions sold over-the-counter at your local store. These products rarely work. If these over-the-counter products succeed in whitening the teeth, the stains will almost certainly resurface days, weeks or months later. The better approach is professional teeth whitening.

What is Invisalign?

Contributed by DentalROI

Invisalign Clear AlignersInvisalign is a highly efficient means of straightening crooked teeth. Perhaps the best part about the Invisalign system is no one knows you are actually using it. Invisalign aligners are completely translucent so those in your vicinity will have no idea your teeth are in the midst of being straightened. This is quite the stark contrast to those metal braces that take months or even years longer to straighten wayward teeth. Though Invisalign cannot correct extreme bite problems as braces can, these invisible aligners move teeth into the perfect position to enhance a patient's smile in a year or less. Alternatively, braces typically take longer to straighten teeth and almost always diminish the patient's confidence.

Dental crowns also called “caps”, are helpful for a wide variety of dental issues. People have their teeth crowned to repair sections damaged by decay, to replace a lost tooth as a component of a dental implant system, to cover a cosmetically damaged tooth, restore a cracked/broken tooth and simply add more stability to a tooth weakened by root canal therapy.
