If you have misaligned teeth, but don’t want to deal with uncomfortable metal braces, Invisalign clear aligner therapy may be right for you. Utilizing a series of clear aligners that are virtually invisible while being worn, you can get the beautifully straight smile of your dreams, often in less time than with traditional braces.
Dental bonding is a fast, completely non-invasive treatment that can transform your smile by filling small gaps, chips, or cracks. A special dental resin will be color-matched to your smile and applied to the misshapen teeth. Then, Dr. Dorsey will carefully sculpt the resin into the target shape before using a UV light to cure, or harden, the resin. Enameloplasty, or shaping & contouring, is often used in tandem with dental bonding to achieve the desired results. The procedure involves removing small amounts of enamel to help reshape uneven, chipped, or sharp teeth.
Veneers are wafer-thin, tooth-colored sheets made from durable porcelain that are affixed to the front of your teeth to cover up stains, minor chips, cracks, and gaps, and are able to completely transform your smile. To place veneers, about 0.5mm of enamel will be removed from your teeth to ensure the veneers don’t protrude in any way, so they blend seamlessly with the rest of your grin. This makes them an irreversible procedure, so Dr. Dorsey will help you decide if veneers are right for you.
When you think of Botox, you likely think about how it is used to minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. However, it can be used for so much more! From reducing the appearance of gummy smiles to therapeutic applications, Botox therapy can help you get your smile back.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders (TMJ/TMD) affect the jaw, and can result in jaw pain, clicking or popping noises, and even migraines. Botox has been shown to minimize the effects of TMJ/TMD, and works by paralyzing specific muscles, forcing them to relax so your jaw can recover.
Bruxism, or teeth grinding and clenching, can lead to a variety of issues, including TMJ pain, and can even result in worn down, cracked, or chipped teeth. Teeth grinding and jaw clenching usually occurs at night while you’re asleep, making it an unconscious behavior. Botox helps facial muscles relax, minimizing the effects of Bruxism for months at a time.
If you’ve been missing teeth for a while, and are getting your first set of dentures, you will likely experience a period of discomfort as you adjust to your new smile. Botox therapy can help speed up this process by relaxing facial muscles, allowing them to become accustomed to the new prosthetic.
