Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening may seem like a modern-day procedure, but scientific discoveries show that it may actually have begun 4,000 years ago in ancient Egypt. The first known whitening paste was made from ground pumice stone mixed in wine vinegar. Throughout the ages, having white teeth has always been a sign of beauty and status.

Today, teeth whitening is one of the most popular, if not the #1 cosmetic dental procedure. It’s easier than ever to get white and shiny teeth and enjoy improved appearance and self-confidence. It works on people of any age and it is proven safe under the supervision of a dentist.

Even people born with naturally white teeth will get stains and discoloration over time. This is due to the staining effect of certain beverages, like red wine, coffee, tea, and cola. Certain staining foods and spices, tobacco use, taking prescription drugs, and the natural ageing process also can cause yellowing and graying.
Are you considering a teeth whitening procedure? At CV Dental Care our advanced bleaching techniques offer speed, convenience, and outstanding results in achieving a bright and perfect smile. Whether you want to lighten up only your upper teeth or both upper and lower, we will work with you and help you achieve your goal.

Get the Whitest Smile with EZ White Pro™ In as Little as 30 Minutes

If you want to whiten your teeth in as little as 30 minutes or less, our in-office EZ White Pro™ Whitening System offers immediate results. It is fast, gentle and effective, and patients can achieve smiles up to 8 shades whiter. It can be scheduled even during the same visit.

How does EZ White Pro™ work?

EZ White Pro™ patented technology uses a whitening gel with FDA approved ingredients hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide to whiten the teeth naturally. It is applied only to the surface of the teeth after which it is activated with a dental curing light. As the gel begins to deep clean stains below the surface of the teeth, it changes color from orange to white to indicate to your dental professional that it has been activated. The innovative light-activated bleaching process has been proven safe through extensive research and there is very little or no sensitivity to the teeth.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

Results of up to 8 shades whiter have been reported by many patients, and your dentist will help you set your realistic expectations during the consultation.

Depending upon a variety of factors, such as tooth structure, personal habits and oral hygiene, results will vary from patient to patient.

How Long Will Results Last?

Because EZ White™ Pro works deeper beneath just the surface stains on the enamel of the tooth, results will last much longer than results with a non-professional treatment. However, proper dental hygiene and limiting staining agents such as red wine and coffee can help maintain your results.

 

At CV Dental Care, professional tooth whitening is a thorough, safe, and effective procedure that has long lasting results, unlike the store bought-whitening treatments. Our top-rated dental care providers will customize your treatment and help you achieve your dream smile.

Call us today or simply let us know at any appointment if you would like to whiten your teeth.

Dental Crowns

Teeth can undergo a great deal of damage for many reasons. If left untreated, they may eventually be lost. Modern dentistry offers a variety of solutions for saving damaged, worn, decayed, and broken teeth, and restoring their natural look and function. At CV Dental Care, our experienced dentists use the best materials and advanced techniques to restore the most damaged teeth back to full health and functionality. Teeth can undergo a great deal of damage for many reasons. If left untreated, they may eventually be lost. Modern dentistry offers a variety of solutions for saving damaged, worn, decayed, and broken teeth, and restoring their natural look and function. At CV Dental Care, our experienced dentists use the best materials and advanced techniques to restore the most damaged teeth back to full health and functionality.

Dental crowns, or caps, are used to rebuild and cover damaged teeth with materials that resemble one’s natural teeth in strength and comfort. At CV Dental Care, dental crowns are designed and crafted with consideration of our patients’ lifestyle, overall health of the mouth and surrounding teeth, bite, and skin tone. With proper care and good oral hygiene, the life of a crown can range from 5 to 15 years. Our goal is to provide treatments that are used for long lasting correction of major dental problems.

Key Benefits of Dental Crowns:

Dental crowns can be used to restore a single tooth, multiple teeth and even the entire mouth, or in conjunction of dental implants. 

  • Even badly broken teeth can be replaced with dental crowns
  • Missing teeth can also be replaced with dental crowns
  • Crowns help slow down existing damage by providing support to cracked or chipped teeth
  • Crowns help restore chewing and proper bite
  • Crowns protect and support a tooth after a very large filling or root canal treatment
  • Crowns hold a dental bridge or other prosthetic device in place

How Long Does it Take to Fit a Dental Crown?

As with most restorative methods, dental crowns also require at least two visits to the dentist. On the first visit, you’ll get an injection of anesthesia, after which your dentist will remove any decay and shape the tooth. An impression is then taken, and a temporary cap put on the tooth.

A couple of weeks later, at your second appointment, you’ll have the temporary cap removed, and a permanent restoration put on.

Most major dental problems caused through accidents, diseases, wear and tear can be corrected using crown and bridgework. The dental materials used in these repairs are either high-grade porcelain or porcelain bonded to gold. A higher strength of the porcelain and gold materials is recommended to treat the most serious of dental problems. Placing crowns on the back teeth relieves the pain that is usually due to hairline cracks in the chewing part of the tooth. For the front teeth, porcelain crowns and bridges are suitable in cases where porcelain veneers are not. In teeth with root canal fillings, crowns can prevent breakage.

At CV Dental Care, we believe that preserving the tooth structure is crucial to the longevity of your teeth and strive to create the highest quality restorations that last several years, and, with a proper oral hygiene for your lifetime.

Teeth Cleaning

Prophylaxis (Teeth Cleaning)

A dental prophylaxis is a cleaning treatment performed to thoroughly clean the teeth and gums. Prophylaxis is an important dental treatment for stopping the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease.

Prophylaxis is an effective procedure in keeping the oral cavity in proper health and halting the progression of gum disease. The benefits include:

  • Plaque removal. Tartar (also referred to as calculus) and plaque buildup, both above and below the gum line, can result in serious periodontal problems. Unfortunately, even with a proper home brushing and flossing routine, it can be impossible to remove all debris, bacteria and deposits from gum pockets. The experienced eye of a dentist or hygienist using specialized dental equipment is necessary to catch potentially damaging buildup.
  • A healthier looking smile. Stained and yellowed teeth can dramatically decrease the esthetics of a smile. Prophylaxis is an effective treatment in ridding the teeth of these unsightly stains.
  • Fresher breath. Bad breath (or halitosis) is generally indicative of advancing periodontal disease. A combination of rotting food particles (possibly below the gum line) and potential gangrene stemming from gum infection, results in bad breath. The routine removal of plaque, calculus and bacteria at our facility can noticeably improve halitosis and reduce infection.

Prophylaxis can be performed at our office. We recommend that prophylaxis be performed twice annually as a preventative measure, but should be completed every 3-4 months for periodontitis sufferers. It should be noted that gum disease cannot be completely reversed, but prophylaxis is one of the tools our doctors can use to effectively halt its progression.
