A beautiful smile starts with healthy gums and teeth, but we also help patients with the appearance of their smiles. We offer a host of services from teeth alignment to gum recontouring and are highly experienced in working with patients to make sure they get the smile they've always envisioned. If you have a smile in mind but are not quite sure what procedures it would require, we are happy to have a consultation with you to discuss various options.
We build smiles from the inside out.
Invisalign clear braces offer a discreet, fast, and effective way of re-aligning and straightening teeth by gently guiding them into a position. Once your dental impressions have been taken, your Invisalign clear braces can be tailor-made to fit your teeth to ensure that you receive the best outcome specifically formulated for you. Each Invisalign aligner is worn for a week, gently moving your teeth into position ready for your next aligner until you reach your final treatment goal.
There are two primary methods of whitening: in-office whitening and supervised at-home whitening. Our in-office technique makes use of concentrated gel applications during a one to two hour session (one arch per session). Typically we will see teeth whiten two to three full shades by the end of the appointment. Less expensive supervised at-home methods produce results via daily sessions over two to four weeks of wearing customized trays with a less concentrated gel during which we’ll normally see the same level of whitening. Afterwards, you can best preserve your new brighter smile by limiting habits such as smoking, drinking coffee/tea as well as keeping up with your regular professional cleanings.
Whether your gum tissue is a little high or a little low, it might affect your confidence and the way you interact with people. We use laser technology to help reshape gums quickly and painlessly. Dr. Malpeso trims and shapes gums to create an even and natural look, completing the procedure in just one visit; gum reshaping is a quick procedure that provides outstanding results.
Dental Veneers can conceal imperfections in your teeth. We can hide teeth that have chips, are stained, misaligned, or are inconsistently spaced. They are designed to have the precise appearance of your teeth but perfected. With them, we cover and conceal teeth that are damaged or misshapen, leaving only perfect appearing teeth. Veneers are created from thin porcelain shells, which bond to the front surface of your enamel. The result is beautiful looking teeth, and depending on the situation, we will work to create a perfect line of symmetry in your smile.
Porcelain veneers are a great cosmetic dental solution for patients who wish to address:
• Small or worn-down teeth
• Minor dental misalignment
• Chipped or cracked teeth
Lumineers are another option for cosmetic perfecting. Like veneers they are placed on the surface of the teeth, however due to their lightweight texture,it is not necessary to remove healthy tooth structure to prepare teeth for placement. This means that lumineers can also be taken off at some point in the future, if necessary.
