Popular Cosmetic Procedures
One of our most popular procedures is our professional in-office teeth whitening. The Opalescence Boost whitening treatment is a chemically activated, powerful whitening method that can help you achieve a brighter, whiter smile in under an hour! It is more potent and works faster than take-home methods for a whiter smile in just one session. Many of our patients love the results of this whitening treatment.
Our office does offer a take-home teeth whitening treatment as well. The at-home system includes Opalescence Boost whitening gel and custom trays. Many of our patients are pleased with this method for its high ability to control the result of the treatment. With in-office whitening, the powerful formula gives you the brightest smile possible in just one session, which is great for some people, but others want the control of the at-home method and the ability to whiten their teeth little by little until the desired shade is reached.
Whichever method you choose, our fun and friendly staff can help get you started on your journey to a happier and more beautiful smile.
Another popular cosmetic option is DURAthin Veneers. Veneers are often used to correct a stained, chipped, decayed, or crooked smile by covering the front of your teeth with a thin shell of tooth-colored porcelain. These shells are custom-made based on a model of your ideal smile created by you and your doctor. At our office, we use DURAthin veneers – this type of veneer requires very little to no prep work. Some types of veneers require that part of your tooth’s enamel be removed before placing the veneer, but at Dr. Ericksen’s office, we strive to keep as much of your natural smile intact as possible.
Other Cosmetic Options
- Invisalign Short-Term Orthodontics – This orthodontic system offers comfortable, convenient, and invisible teeth alignment therapy. Invisalign is made up of a series of clear plastic aligner trays that are changed out regularly to gradually and comfortably shift your teeth to their desired position. This method causes less discomfort than traditional braces, and is, as the name suggests, invisible! The trays are also removable, allowing you to eat, drink, and brush and floss your teeth with ease.
- Bridges and Crowns – We offer many different options for crowns and bridges. Crowns are used to correct cracked or decayed teeth and usually sit directly on top of your existing tooth. The prosthetic material is matched as closely as possible to the color of your natural tooth. A bridge is a mechanism that holds a prosthetic crown in place in the case of a missing tooth. Full-arch implant-supported bridges are our most popular option, but zirconium bridges are also available. We will work with you to determine the best treatment for your situation.
- Cosmetic Bonding – This procedure is used to correct chipped teeth or other small imperfections. Composite resin is bonded directly to your tooth to correct chips or cracks. The prosthetic material is durable and is matched to the color of your natural tooth, so the end result looks and feels completely natural.
- Gum Recontouring and Recession Treatment – Sometimes your gums are too gummy or not gummy enough. We offer cosmetic procedures to reshape your gumline. Oftentimes, this reshaping comes in the form of gum grafting. Gum grafting is used to replace gum tissue that has been lost due to disease or age. At our office we use AlloDerm, a grafting tissue that encourages natural regeneration. Many times, grafting is done by taking tissue from the palate in order to replace tissue on the gumline. Using AlloDerm allows us to avoid extra cutting and discomfort.
We also offer full-mouth rehabilitation and smile makeovers. We can completely restore or makeover your mouth to give you the smile of your dreams. We employ various techniques and treatments to achieve the end result of a happier, healthier, and more beautiful smile.
