Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of procedures to correct imperfections in the appearance of the mouth. Several options are available to improve tooth function create a positive change to your teeth and to your smile. At Robinson Family Dental, we offer take-home whitening, in-office whitening, Botox®, Juvederm®, ClearCorrect®, veneers, bonding, and ceramic/porcelain crowns.
Robinson Family Dental digitally designs and produces our own veneers to deliver a beautiful result that is simple and painless. Veneers deliver a natural looking smile because they are designed to be ultra-thin (about as thin as a contact lens) and are applied seamlessly over the teeth.
The steps are simple to achieve the beautiful smile you have always wanted and it is all completed in one visit. First, you will have a consultation with Dr. Robinson. Next, she will take a digital impression of your upper and lower teeth. The veneers will then be made in our lab while your teeth are being prepped. Once Dr. Robinson places your veneers, she will then examine your bite to ensure your contacts are balanced to avoid chipping your veneers during the course of daily function. A beautiful and natural smile can be yours with one easy and comfortable visit to Robinson Family Dental. Our veneers also have a LIFE TIME warranty as long as you have regular cleanings and check-ups every six months.
BOTOX® and JUVEDERM®
Botox® can be used for much more than smooth facial wrinkles and tightening collagen. Clinical uses include the treatment of TMJ, bruxism, and chronic facial pain. It may also be used complimentary to aesthetic dentistry for patients having difficulty adjusting to new dentures, lip augmentations, or those who need facial muscle retaining. Treatments are approximately 20 minutes and results are noticeable in 7-10 days. Each treatment last an average of 4 months.
Juvederm® can be used virtually anywhere on the face. It is most successful in the lip, nasolabial folds (lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth), and the marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth downward to the jawline). Juvederm® is a smooth dermal filler gel that helps to instantly restore your skins’ volume and smooth away facial wrinkles and folds. With Juvederm®, the results are immediate with minimal downtime. Dr. Robinson can ensure patient comfort by completely numbing the area. Most patients need one treatment to achieve optimal wrinkle smoothing and the results last up to 6 months or more.
IN-OFFICE AND TAKE-HOME WHITENING
Robinson Family Dental offers Kor In-Office Whitening and Sheer White Take Home Strips
For the first time ever, even super-resistant stains, like tetracycline and fluorosis, can be flooded with the concentrations of bleaching factors necessary to ensure that the vast majority of patients obtain truly white teeth. KöR even whitens tetracycline-stained teeth significantly, which was previously thought to be impossible! Unlike other whitening methods, with easy periodic home maintenance, KöR Whitening delivers lasting results.
KöR is widely recognized as the world’s most effective whitening system – with no need for lights or lasers. KöR offers cost-effective solutions from phenomenal home whitening for typical patients, to astonishing treatment of tetracycline cases — and everything in-between. The Kore Whitening includes custom made whitening trays, two weeks of take home whitening gel for the custom made trays and a two hour in-office whitening treatment.
Sheer White has carbamide peroxide in the take-home strips for a number of reasons. One is because of stability. Carbamide peroxide has a stabilizing agent within it that makes it more stable and therefore more predictable in the whitening it can deliver. Secondly, carbamide peroxide reduces the possibility of patients experiencing sensitivity. The peroxide enters the porous teeth and moves freely throughout the enamel and dentin. It then breaks down the long chain particles that cause discoloration.
ClearCorrect® is a clear aligner system used to straighten teeth as an alternative to traditional braces. By using a series of clear, custom-made, removable aligners that gradually adjust teeth, ClearCorrect® eventually corrects the teeth to achieve a new and revitalized smile. Compared to traditional wires and brackets, clear aligners are comfortable. It’s easy to remove aligners so there is no problem in eating any foods. There are no wires to trap food or get in the way when you floss. Clear aligners show off your smile, so most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them.
Smile Transitions™ is a lower cost, full-arch cosmetic appliance indicated for patients who are not quite willing or able to move forward with restorative treatment.
Smile Transitions™ is worn over existing dentition and offer the patient instant esthetic improvement to his or her smile. Flexible and strong, this natural-looking appliance does not require any cementation or adhesive to hold in place. Instead, it fits over the natural undercuts of existing teeth. It can be used in transitional implant healing, or as a diagnostic bite-opening appliance.
