Fall in Love with Your Smile Again with Teeth Whitening!

Are you tired of discolored teeth and feeling embarrassed to smile? If you’ve tried over-the-counter products or at-home remedies with no luck, it’s time to visit a cosmetic dentist in Fishers, IN! Professional teeth whitening may be just what you need to restore confidence in your smile. In many cases, your smile can be brightened up to four shades lighter in just one session!

 

Why Basic Products Don’t Work

Over-the-counter teeth whitening products may provide baseline results, but they won’t deliver the kind of natural white you desire for your smile. That’s because drugstore brands have only a minimal amount of peroxide gel and include other fillers to extend their shelf life. They won’t produce the results you want because they can’t! Overuse of these products can also harm your teeth as abrasive home remedies can. If you’re not seeing a difference in your smile with these options, don’t keep trying. Instead, schedule an appointment at our dental office in Fishers, IN.

 

The Power of Professional Whitening

Professional-grade teeth whitening provides faster and more reliable treatment, with significantly less tooth and gum sensitivity. In-office whitening generally consists of applying a thick coat of peroxide gel to the surface of the teeth. Then, a special light stimulates these whitening agents to target stains and discoloration deep within your tooth enamel.

We’ll supervise your whitening treatment to ensure your new smile is naturally white and complements your facial features and skin tone. In under an hour, your smile will be multiple shades brighter! You can also choose take-home options that produce similar results over several weeks.

 

Affording Your Teeth Whitening

Some of our patients are concerned about how much more professional whitening costs than over-the-counter products. While whitening in our office is more costly, know that you’re receiving more predictable and effective treatment, with beautiful results that last significantly longer. You can finance your treatment through companies like CareCredit®. This healthcare credit card helps you pay for dental expenses not covered by insurance. Monthly payments are based on your budget, so you won’t have to worry about how to afford cosmetic dentistry services again!

 

Tired of Living with Discolored Teeth?

Get the smile of your dreams fast with professional teeth whitening from our cosmetic dentist, Dr. Jones! Schedule your consultation at our office in Fishers, IN today. It often only takes one appointment for us to achieve the smile each of our patient’s desire!

How Stain Resistant are Porcelain Veneers?

There are many ways to obtain a beautiful smile through cosmetic dental procedures in Fishers, IN. They can include getting veneers – dental tooth coverings – over your existing teeth.

 

What Are Veneers?

Dental veneers may be used to correct teeth discoloration, chipped teeth, tooth gaps, or crooked teeth. Dental veneers can be made from thin porcelain or composite resin materials and can look very natural when properly placed. Porcelain veneers are often stronger and more stain resistant than their resin counterparts, offering the ability to eat and drink foods that you normally would without having to be concerned with how your teeth may be affected. Typically, porcelain veneers are covered with resin, which helps them resist stains. However, while porcelain veneers offer a great tooth correction option for daily usage, they are not fully resistant to stains or completely unbreakable.

 

Maintain Your Veneers

Your veneers can offer a lifetime of support for your new beautiful smile. Remembering a few easy tips will help extend the life of your veneers and your smile.

  • Be sure to maintain proper oral hygiene. Regularly visiting your dentist will help keep your teeth healthy and increase the longevity of your veneers. Since your teeth are the foundation, it’s very important to keep them healthy and clean.
  • Change up your toothpaste. Some toothpastes are highly acidic and can increase the chances of your veneers breaking down over time. Be sure to choose an effective, yet gentle toothpaste that will keep your teeth clean.
  • Maintain healthy habits. Making sure you eat healthy and maintain healthy daily habits will not only ensure your veneers stay in their best shape, but will also help your overall health and wellness.
  • Avoid harmful foods. Avoiding harmful foods that are darker colored, hard, acidic, tough, or sticky foods and beverages can help maintain the integrity and quality of your veneers and your new smile. This may include wine, ketchup, hard fruits and vegetables, ice, tough meats or breads, and sticky foods. These items do not need to be fully removed from your daily life, but they should be consumed carefully to keep your veneers strong.

CEREC Crowns: A Quick Fix When You Need It Most

With the busiest time of year now upon us, the holiday season leaves little time for appointments. But what if you have a dental emergency because you’ve cracked or chipped a front tooth? You can’t wait for weeks to get a new restoration and smile. Thankfully, our dentist provides a quick fix with CEREC same-day dental crowns!

What Is CEREC?

CEREC is a treatment process that allows our dentist to design, mill, and cement a new dental crown in just one appointment at our office. That means, if you chip a tooth in the morning and we have emergency appointments available, you can once again have a complete smile by dinner.

Unlike the traditional dental crown process, CEREC treatment means you won’t have to wait weeks in an uncomfortable temporary while a dental lab creates your restoration. Instead, our in-house CEREC milling machine efficiently completes this entire process as you sit comfortably in the dentist’s chair!

Our CEREC Treatment Process

If you recently chipped a tooth or had an old crown pop off, you’re a great candidate for CEREC same-day restorations. At your appointment, we’ll first alter your tooth so that your new dental crown will fit without appearing unnatural and bulky. Then we’ll take digital impressions of this tooth that are uploaded into our design software.

Next, we’ll digitally design your new dental crown for a precise and aesthetic fit before sending this design to our in-house CEREC milling unit. This machine will custom fabricate your restoration from a block of porcelain in under 30 minutes. Then, we’ll color match the crown to your teeth and polish it, so it looks and feels natural. When your dental crown is cemented in place, your appointment is done!

Benefiting from CEREC Dental Crowns

  • A new dental crown in one visit
  • No uncomfortable temporaries
  • Eliminates messy goop impressions
  • Patient-fitted with digital technology
  • Milled from solid porcelain block
  • Long-lasting, functional, and aesthetic

Porcelain Veneers

An Easy Way to Get a Brand-New Smile

Your smile is an important feature – it communicates a great deal about you to the outside world. However, a few people shroud their smiles because they are ashamed of the state of their teeth. Regardless of how you have treated your teeth in the past, cosmetic dentistry can offer a solution to your current dental problems. Veneers are a particularly straightforward and beautiful way to get your teeth looking healthy and shine bright again.

Understanding Veneers

Veneers are an extremely thin shell of porcelain that is intended to fit on the surface of your teeth. Each veneer is custom made to only fit your teeth and is typically used as a permanent cosmetic dental solution. Applying the veneer to a tooth changes the tooth’s color allowing it to appear as if your teeth are naturally whiter. These are commonly used when different techniques are ineffective.

The Process

It may take a couple of appointments to finish applying the veneers. On your primary visit, the teeth receiving the veneers will be buffed to accommodate the thickness of the porcelain appliance so it can be applied evenly. A mold of your teeth will be taken by Dr. Jones to create a blueprint of how your veneers should be shaped.

At your following visit, Dr. Jones will check the size, fit and shade of each veneer. At which point you can then decide if you want to alter the color of your veneers. When you are satisfied with the color, the veneers are cleaned with a special cleaner and applied to the tooth using a special dental bonding agent that is hardened by a light beam.

Are Veneers Right for You?

To learn more about veneers or any other cosmetic dentistry treatment options that we offer, contact our office located in Fishers, Indiana. A member of our team will answer any questions you have and schedule an appointment for you to speak with Dr. Jeremy Jones.
