Composite White Fillings

An increasingly popular alternative to silver amalgam fillings is composite white fillings. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are virtually invisible, and our team at Dental Village can shade them according to the color of your teeth to create a perfect match, giving you a beautiful, white smile!

Invisalign

Invisalign is a revolutionary addition to cosmetic dentistry. The clear aligners are easy to use and can give you the smile you’ve always wanted. Now, you no longer have to worry about uncomfortable and visible retainers. Made of SmartTrack® material, Invisalign aligners work to gently ease your teeth in place.

Invisalign is a treatment that allows you to have straight teeth without the look of metal braces. It basically looks like a clear plastic retainer and works wonderfully, almost like invisible braces. The best part is that you can remove it anytime you want. You can easily take it off when you want to eat, brush, floss, or go somewhere. Our dentist will tell you exactly how long you must keep them on every day after assessing the structure and shape of your teeth. Invisalign can give visible results in just about six weeks, but the duration can vary depending on how much your teeth need work.

Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth. They are custom made to the contour of your teeth and are bonded to the tooth's original enamel during a series of in-office procedures:

  1. The dentist will clean the tooth and determine the correct shade for the veneer. 

  2. An impression will be made for the laboratory and a temporary veneer will be placed on the tooth 

  3. After the laboratory has delivered the veneer to your dentist, the temporary veneer is removed and the tooth is cleaned. The veneer is then etched (coated with a protective layer), rinsed thoroughly with water and air dried. The adhesive is placed on the preparation, and then the cement, and the veneer is placed for exact fit and contour.

  4. The veneer is then light cured for 60 seconds on all surfaces of it to attach it to the tooth structure.

  5. Your dentist will remove any excess material and polish the margins of the veneer.

Veneers are a less intrusive option than crowns or braces. But they're an irreversible treatment, so having them placed is a big decision. Call Dental Village at 520-579-1500 for a consultation with our dentist to see if veneers are right for you.
