What Does Your Smile Analysis Reveal?
Before our dentists at Elite Dental & Aesthetics start a major restoration treatment, they start first with a Smile Analysis. While this may sound complicated, it’s something you probably already do – every time you look in the mirror or analyze a selfie. What do you see when you flash your pearly whites? If you’re not 100% happy with the way your smile looks, then you’re like half of all North Americans … unhappy with at least part of your smile.
Depending on your personal situation, we have a number of fixes that could make the difference between hiding your smile and using it with confidence.
At Elite Dental & Aesthetics, the first step in any full-mouth makeover is a comfortable and educational comprehensive exam. During your dental examination visit, our doctor will begin by getting to know your specific concerns and needs. This is followed by a thorough head, and neck exam, a detailed evaluation of your teeth and gums, a temporomandibular joint (TMJ) check, and a visual, oral cancer screening.
Digital dental X-rays may be necessary to get a complete look at your oral health. Using our state-of-the-art imaging technology, we can see many details of your teeth and jaw within seconds.
After gathering all of this information, our doctor will discuss all of the findings and make specific recommendations for your future treatment.
Metal-Free Crowns and Bridges
At Elite Dental & Aesthetics, we strive to use the best and latest dental materials available in dentistry. Recent breakthroughs in dental crown and bridge technology have provided the dental industry with exceptionally strong and life-like dental crown restorations. Today’s crown is durable, natural-looking, and does not contain any unsightly and unhealthy metals. We work hard to ensure that our crowns match the size, shape, and translucence of your teeth. We routinely use Zirconia and E-Max crowns that have a stain-resistant luster that makes them a particularly good choice for front teeth. In nearly all cases, it is nearly impossible to distinguish our crowns from natural teeth.
Dental implants are the new gold-standard for the replacement of missing teeth. Implants are essentially artificial roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone. The teeth attached to implants are designed to look, feel and function like natural teeth. In addition, dental implants can help preserve facial structure by preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
In most cases, we make it simple and convenient by providing all phases of the placement of dental implants, from start to finish, in our state-of-the-art facility. Implants are an excellent way of providing patients with missing teeth a strong, stable, and beautiful smile.
Getting a beautiful smile without metal braces is easier than ever with Invisalign®. Our doctors are certified Invisalign® providers and routinely utilize these clear braces as a treatment option for teeth that are crowded, widely spaced, or misaligned. Since the Invisalign aligners are removable, comfortable, and virtually invisible, Invisalign is a popular choice among adult patients who do not want conspicuous metal braces. The Invisalign system uses a series of custom-made, virtually invisible plastic aligners to gradually move teeth into alignment.
You will receive detailed instructions on how to wear your aligners and your progress will be monitored carefully by the doctor. Each new set of aligners is worn for two weeks and is worn all day and night (remove the aligners to eat, drink, brush, or floss).
If you have crowded, spaced, or misaligned teeth, now is the time to call Elite Dental & Aesthetics to get started with your Invisalign treatment. In as little as 4 months, you can get the straight, healthy teeth you’ve always dreamed of.Full-Mouth Makeover Plantation
