Cosmetic Services We Offer
Dr. Huang is proficient in several cosmetic dental procedures that will help restore a bright smile to that special someone’s face. Whether you are looking for teeth whitening treatment, porcelain veneers, or even adult orthodontics, we can help. The doctor can even combine cosmetic treatments for a complete smile makeover.
For patients with stained teeth, smiling doesn’t come easy. Dr. Huang uses the revolutionary new KoR whitening system to remove even the most stubborn stains from his patients’ teeth. The KoR system is different from other whitening treatments because the whitening agent is kept refrigerated from the time it is made until it is delivered to our office. Keeping the gel refrigerated prevents it from breaking down chemically. Many other treatments use gel that has been in a hot warehouse or truck, leading to a chemical degradation that results in acidic ions being produced. These ions are what cause so many whitening treatments to result in sensitivity and pain. Another advantage of this system is the custom made trays.We create trays from impressions the doctor takes of your teeth, resulting in a snug fit that keeps the teeth in constant contact with the whitening agent. Many patients experience stunning results after just one treatment with the KoR whitening system.
Porcelain veneers repair a number of dental problems, including gaps between teeth, misalignments, and cracked, chipped, or stained enamel. Dr. Huang takes the time to talk to his patients and find out what they hope to correct with the treatment, before starting. The veneer process is fairly simple, but the results are amazing. Dr. Huang removes a small amount of enamel from the teeth, then takes impressions which we use to make a mold of the patient’s teeth. We send the mold to a US-based dental lab, where the veneers are custom made. You'll wear temporary veneers unitl the permanent veneers are complete. You will then return to our office so that Dr. Huang can bond the veneers in place. Quality dental porcelain mimics the reflective qualities of natural teeth and is stain resistant, so you'll enjoy a gorgeous, white smile for years to come.
Invisalign is the adult orthodontic treatment you have been waiting for, because it's virtually invisible. Instead of uncomfortable brackets and wires, the Invisalign system uses clear, removable aligners that gently move teeth into place. The system is perfect for patients with overbites or underbites, as well as adults who wore traditional braces when they were younger, and have found that their teeth have moved back out of alignment.
To start the treatment, Dr. Huang will take digital images of your mouth and feed them into Invisalign software. The software will design a custom treatment plan for you, determining how many sets of aligners you will need to wear, and how long the treatment will last. Most patients wear about 20-30 sets of aligners over a period of 12-18 months. As long as you follow the parameters of keeping your aligners in for 20-22 hours each day, you will only need to visit the doctor every six weeks or so for a quick checkup.
Invisalign didn’t forget about the kids. They have a special program called Invisalign Teen that is geared towards helping them stay on track with the treatment plan. The program offers all the same benefits of the original, but with a few unique additions. Teen aligners have a blue dot that fades as your child wears them. If the blue dot doesn’t fade, your child is not in compliance with the treatment plan. The teen system even comes with six free, extra aligners, so if your child misplaces one, you only need to call us and we’ll order a replacement.
