In-Office & At-Home Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening is one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry services available. Foods and drinks patients consume every day stain teeth, and unavoidable concerns like aging, medications, and genetic predisposition also lead to discoloration. While there are numerous over the counter whitening products that promise dramatic results, only professional whitening products deliver. At Rogers Dental Group, we offer both in-office and at-home whitening options. For those patients looking for fast results, in-office whitening can brighten smiles by up to ten shades in one visit. Patients who prefer to see their smile brighten gradually and those with sensitive teeth may prefer whitening from the comfort of their home with custom application trays and professional whitening gel.
In the past, grey-colored amalgam fillings were used to restore decayed and damaged teeth. While these restorations restored the shape and function of patients’ teeth, they left them with a flawed cosmetic appearance. We prefer to use composite resin filling for our Tulsa, OK patients. These fillings are shaded to match patients’ natural teeth and are applied directly to the tooth and hardened in place with a curing light. Because the composite resin is applied and formed directly onto the tooth, patients are able to retain more natural dental structure when compared with metallic fillings that are formed outside the mouth and cemented into place.
Patients with numerous smile flaws may believe that complex orthodontic, restorative, or cosmetic dentistry services are necessary, but in many cases, there is a simpler solution: porcelain veneers. These thin sheaths of dental grade porcelain fit over the fronts of teeth, concealing and correcting multiple smile irregularities at one time. The process is quick and simple: a small amount of surface enamel is removed from teeth in order to allow the veneer to blend seamlessly into the natural smile line. Then, the veneer is cemented into place on top of the prepared teeth. The result is a beautiful, natural-looking smile with little to no discomfort or recovery time necessary.
At Rogers Dental Group, we think that all dental care should be cosmetic. That’s why so many of our services allow us to restore not just the function of patients’ teeth, but the appearance of their smiles as well. In the past silver, gold, and other metals were the norm for dental restorations like crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays. Today, we recommend the use of all-ceramic restorations to renew the look and function of teeth. In addition to looking great, all-ceramic restorations are also better for those patients who experience sensitivity to metals. With proper care, ceramic restorations last as long as metallic alternatives and leave patients with beautiful smiles.
