Porcelain Veneers

Are your teeth permanently stained or discolored? Do gaps between your front teeth detract from your appearance? Are your teeth poorly shaped or slightly out of alignment? Now it’s easier than ever to have great looking teeth and a fabulous smile through a cosmetic dental technique called veneering.

Porcelain veneers are used to restore teeth that have been disfigured by decay, breakage, abrasion, poor alignment, or discoloration. Porcelain veneers replace the enamel of your teeth and provide beauty and strength equaling that of your original tooth structure. Since porcelain is less porous than enamel, porcelain veneers are even more stain resistant than natural teeth. Because of their strength and resistance to chewing stress, porcelain veneers are preferred by many dentists and their patients .

Having a tooth veneered is a simple procedure requiring just a few appointments. Veneers are affixed directly to your teeth, generally without the need for anesthetic. In what seems like no time at all, your smile will be comfortably and beautifully transformed.

Porcelain Crowns

When fillings and/or other basic restorations are not sufficient to restore a tooth to its normal size,
shape and function, porcelain crowns are the treatment of choice. Porcelain crowns are placed for a number of reasons: to support large fillings when there isn’t enough tooth surface remaining to attach a bridge, to protect weak teeth from fracturing, or to restore fractured or decayed teeth or teeth that have had root canal therapy. Porcelain Crowns are made to look the same as the other teeth in your mouth- matching the color, shape and size- and last for quite a long time.

Porcelain crowns are prepared and placed in the following fashion: First, the tooth is prepared by removing its outer portion to accommodate the thickness of the crown. Then, an impression Is made to provide an exact model of the tooth and the porcelain crown is made from this model. The crown is then put in place and any necessary adjustments are made. When its position, appearance and feel are all satisfactory, the porcelain crown is then cemented into place. Once the procedure is complete, the tooth will not only be stronger, it will feel better and look great. Typically, two appointments are required to complete this procedure.

Porcelain Onlays & Inlays

In lays, sometimes referred to as partial crowns, are utilized to repair teeth in place of large, defective fillings or where significant decay or trauma has occurred. They are typically are made of porcelain or gold and are permanently cemented into place by the dentist. Inlays are used for the same purpose and include coverage of the chewing surfaces of a tooth when that need is evident. Your dentist can evaluate your need for this conservative restoration and whether a crown will constitute a better, more practical long-term solution to your problem.

White Fillings

White (composite) fillings are used exclusively at Arlington Dental. They are environmentally safe, contain no mercury and hold many advantages over the traditional silver (amalgam) fillings. White fillings, in addition to being attractive and natural looking, also serve to strengthen teeth rather than weaken them as silver fillings are known to do. Because the composite material of a white filling is actually poured into place, a considerably smaller hole can be made for the filling. As a result of removing less material, more of the original tooth can be retained, making for a stronger restoration and allowing for smaller cavities to be filled as well. Once the decayed portion of the tooth is removed, the tooth is etched with a solution, the composite is poured in and a specialized light is used to harden the composite material.. When the process is done, the filling is shaped to fit the tooth and the filling is polished to prevent against staining and wear.

Teeth Whitening

At Arlington Dental, we offer two safe, efficient and economical ways to brighten your teeth and improve your smile. Most everyone who utilizes this cosmetic treatment will experience moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their teeth.

Teeth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin. The most common causes of this type of discoloration include age, the consumption of coffee, tea, cola and tobacco, as well as antibiotic staining, excessive fluoride, nerve degeneration and old restorations. While almost anyone can benefit from teeth bleaching, there are some cases where the treatment may not be effective. Your dentist can determine the viability of this process working for you through oral examination and recommend the correct method of care to obtain the best results.

Significantly brighter and whiter teeth can be yours in an hour with our in-office whitening treatment. We apply a solution to your teeth every 15 minutes for up to an hour until the whiteness and brightness you seek have been achieved. The procedure is safe and will not harm your teeth and gums. If you’d prefer to whiten your teeth at home, we can provide you with trays that are custom molded to your mouth that will allow you to brighten your teeth more gradually- an hour or two a day or while you sleep- until the desired brightness is reached. For a more pronounced and effective solution, the one-hour office treatment is highly recommended. Your dentist will give you information on follow-up care that will help you maximize and maintain the brightness and whiteness of your teeth.

Invisalign® - Orthodontics

Invisalign® can be used by adults and teens to treat the vast majority of common orthodontic problems. Whether your teeth need minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can be effective and successfully treat overly crowded or widely spaced teeth or more complex problems including over and under-bites and even cross-bites. Invisalign clear aligners can be used in all or part of just about any treatment plan your dentist prescribes to straighten your teeth and improve your smile.

The convenience and ease of using the Invisalign system have made it the orthodontic treatment of choice for hundreds of thousands of people looking for better teeth and a better smile. Unlike braces, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to position and straighten teeth and have no bands or wires to irritate your mouth. Most people won’t notice you’re straightening your teeth, and the treatment won’t disrupt your lifestyle or your eating habits, or effect your speech.

Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of aligners that you change about every two weeks. Molds of your teeth are taken by your dentist and each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place. Since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, you know you'll end up with a smile that truly fits. If you're ready for straighter teeth and a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other works as effortlessly as the Invisalign system. Invisalign is the best way to transform your smile with ease, convenience, and less expense within six months to a year of your start date.

Extreme Makeovers

An Extreme Dental Makeover represents something different to every individual, as it is based solely on the needs and wants of that particular person. A patient may come in with some particular objectives in mind but not knowing what the options are or what is involved. Treatment begins with a complete examination after which where the patient is informed of any and all conditions or diseases that need to be treated.
After this, an interview with the patient takes place to determine what their specific wants and needs are, and what their ultimate goals are for their dental health and appearance. We then draw up a plan to accomplish those goals by employing any of the procedures and techniques presented in this site that are required to do so. We will then help the patient identify whatever means exist to make the treatments affordable to them. This is a team approach involving the patient and the staff at Arlington dental, and a total commitment on our part to make that patient’s dreams a reality. We would welcome the opportunity to help you make your desires for optimal dental health and a more appealing appearance come true.
