The current generation is all about getting what they want in a timely manner. Longer dental treatment plans like those involving Invisalign or dental implants can take months to reach completion. However, there are some dental treatment plans that involve very little downtime as well as offer you immediate results. If you are looking to better your dental health as soon as possible, consider the following dental procedures.
In-office teeth whitening appointments typically take around an hour from start to finish. Within this time, your local cosmetic dentist, Dr. Brent Engelberg, applies the whitening solutions to your teeth, making sure to protect your gums to avoid increased sensitivity. Ultraviolet light is applied to the gel to activate it. Then, all you have to do is sit back and relax as the bleaching agents in the gel are actively getting rid of years of stains or discoloration. For an even more convenient option, Dr. Engelberg is happy to provide take-home whitening kits for you. Depending on your needs and goals, Dr. Engelberg can provide whatever method of teeth whitening that will work best for you.
Tooth bonding is another quick, economical, and painless dental procedure used to address minor dental concerns like chips, cracks, or bleach-resistant stains. Completed in one appointment using a tooth-colored, resin material similar to what is used during dental fillings, tooth bonding allows Dr. Engelberg to discreetly cover small imperfections to achieve major transformations. Minor damages that are not linked to underlying dental concerns can be concealed using a small amount of bonding material that is hardened to your dental surface using ultraviolet light, and then shaped down to ensure it does not interfere with your bite pattern.
Scheduling routine preventative care appointments with your dentist is another fast way to better your dental health. During preventative care appointments, you will receive a thorough dental cleaning in which one of our hygienists will remove any plaque or tartar buildup from your teeth and gums. This stops harmful dental concerns like gum disease and tooth decay from progressing, giving your smile the reset that it needs. Additionally, you will receive a dental exam performed by Dr. Brent Engelberg. The dental exam is a great time to address any concerns you may have about your dental health.
