You’ve probably heard the term “Hollywood smile.” And if you’ve ever looked at the teeth of actors and other celebrities, you’ve probably noticed that they tend to be white, straight, and blemish-free.
Of course, famous people are no more likely to have naturally perfect smiles than the rest of us. Many of them owe their glorious grins to dental veneers — a procedure actually created by a dentist-to-the-stars in order to make actors’ teeth look flawless on screen.
Today, you don’t have to be a movie star to get veneers’ dramatic and showstopping results. At Douglas A. Callow, DDS, we offer traditional porcelain veneers and ceramic e.max veneers. The doctor will be happy to discuss the pros and cons of each and which best fits your needs.
Both options are durable, will be matched perfectly to your tooth color, and possess a sheen and translucence just like real teeth. We will need to remove a small amount of enamel before bonding them. With proper care, your new smile will last ten years or more.
Sometimes just lifting those stains is all you need for a sensational smile. Teeth whitening products are available at your local drugstore and supermarket, but you may find they don’t deliver satisfactory results. They contain a much lower concentration of whitening agent than professional products, plus the mass-produced trays are uncomfortable and don’t apply the solution evenly.
At Douglas A. Callow, DDS, we offer Venus White take-home products. This system promises to bring the white back to your pearlies — up to eight shades lighter! We will make custom whitening trays that fit your mouth perfectly, ensuring even coverage and no leakage onto soft tissues. You can choose a formulation that fits your lifestyle — a more concentrated solution for daytime or slower-working one for night. Whichever you choose, our formula is designed to minimize sensitivity.
If your teeth have an overlap, if they are unevenly shaped, overly pointy or long, or have worn down or rough edges, teeth contouring is an easy and inexpensive way to smooth out minor imperfections.
The process involves removing small amount of enamel to reshape or refine teeth. Since we don’t get near the inner structure of the tooth, the technique is painless. It is also fast, generally requiring just one appointment. And, since enamel doesn’t grow back, results are permanent.
Often considered a faster, non permanent, and less expensive alternative to veneers, tooth bonding corrects many of the same issues: minor chips, stains, gaps, and cracks. It may also be used to alter the contours of the teeth or to cover areas where the gumline has receded.
In this procedure, which usually requires no anesthesia and can be done in one dental visit, we use a composite resin that’s custom-matched to your tooth color. It’s similar to the material used in composite fillings. We mold it over the area to be fixed and harden it with a special light. After we make final adjustments to the shape, we polish the material until it matches the lustre of your natural teeth.
No wires, no brackets, no braces. Just a beautifully straight smile. Invisalign is the revolutionary orthodontic system that will fix your crooked, misaligned, and crowded teeth without unattractive and uncomfortable metal braces.
You will receive a set of custom-crafted plastic aligners that over time will shift your teeth into the desired position. The product has many advantages over traditional orthodontics.
- The aligners are soft and comfortable. No metal parts to poke your mouth.
- You may remove them for eating and cleaning your teeth.
- Invisalign tends to work more quickly than braces.
- They are discrete. Most people will not notice you are wearing them.
