What I would say to someone who is embarrassed with their smile is we have many different ways that we can help you. We can straighten teeth using Invisalign, nearly clear, virtually invisible plastic aligners that move the teeth slowly just like regular orthodontics and braces do, but without the metal wires showing so they're very convenient for particularly adults. You can take them in and out as you need to, or if you're eating. We as for 22 hours a day of wear. That is one technique that is available to help people fix their smiles.
Often times it's a discoloration probably, and we offer zoom bleaching and home bleaching. It's very effective and efficient. One of the other ways that we can help is if the teeth are rotated or gaps, there are many types of cosmetic procedures that we can do from dental bonding of tooth-colored filling material on chips or broken pieces of the front teeth, to full smile makeovers and full mouth reconstruction.
I teach a new full mouth reconstruction course at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. I'm one of only 24 masters of the Las Vegas Institute, Master of Aesthetic and Restorative Neuromuscular Dentistry. There's 24 of us worldwide. In order to earn that, you have to submit cases, have them reviewed, of full mouth reconstructions that basically come out perfectly.
MicroDental Lab is a big national, international lab and they seek out patients who have great smiles that they helped create. One of my patients was Mr. October a couple years ago. If you're not happy with your smile, we can probably help you.
You hear something funny, and you start to smile — but your hand quickly covers your mouth. You do not want others to see your smile, because you’re embarrassed about it. It doesn’t matter if it’s because your teeth are stained, chipped, or crooked; you just fear what other people will think if they see your smile. No one should have to feel compelled to hide their smile, which is why we offer a wide range of dental treatments at our Roseville, CA dental office that can help.
Even if you take perfect care of your car over the years, you’re going to have problems with how it looks. The color can fade, and it can get dented and scratched through no fault of your own. The same is true with your teeth. If you brush, floss and visit a dentist like clockwork, you can still collect stains, chips, and cracks. Dental veneers can quickly help with all three problems. These thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front of your teeth, instantly giving you a great smile.
Your teeth are naturally white, but stains can collect on your enamel and discolor them. The stains can come from coffee, wine, dark foods such as tomato sauce, smoke, or even age. Regular cleaning cannot lift these stains, which is why we offer teeth whitening. Dr. Miller can perform the whitening at our Roseville, CA dental office, or you can get professional-strength whitening trays to do the work at home.
A long time ago, many dental treatments included metal such as silver, gold, and even small amounts of toxic mercury. Fillings used to use a metal amalgam or mixture, for example. Times have changed. We offer metal-free treatments at Advanced Dental Concepts. After all, why work hard to fix your teeth if you’re going to make them look ugly?
When your adult teeth come in, they can come in crooked or misaligned. This leaves you with a smile that’s uneven. We offer several orthodontic treatments that will help your smile look normal. You can choose traditional braces, veneers for “instant orthodontics,” and Invisalign clear plastic aligners for nearly invisible braces.
