A whiter smile with tooth whitening will make you happier, but it can also help boost your self-esteem. However, thanks to professional tooth whitening from Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi you don’t have to wait weeks to get a brighter grin.

In office tooth whitening is a revolutionary procedure that can whiten your teeth up to 10 shades, and unlike those over the counter tooth bleaching products, you will not have to worry about overdoing it.

These days a beautiful white smile is on everyone’s wish list. Celebrities and the rich and famous would never be seen with less than dazzling pearly whites.

What to Expect

When you schedule an appointment with Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi, he will check your teeth and gums to make sure you are healthy enough for in office tooth whitening. If you have gum disease or tooth decay, that will need to be addressed before you can proceed with in office tooth whitening. The bleaching agents used in tooth whitening can seep into the pockets between your teeth and gums, which is a result of gingivitis or the more serious periodontal disease.

How In Office Tooth Whitening Works

If Dr. Ivan determines that you are a good candidate for in office tooth whitening a special whitening gel will be applied to your teeth. Once applied a laser or light will be used to activate the bleaching agent. With just one office visit, you can have a whiter smile that you will be happy to show off to the world.

Is Everyone a Candidate?

As mentioned above, you must have healthy teeth and gums before tooth whitening. Tooth whitening may not be an option if you have intrinsic stains or old and stained dental restorations. If you have any of the above, Dr. Ivan may recommend porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding, dental implants. or Lumineers.

Invisalign® a Straighter Smile in Less Time

Invisalign® is the only clear alternative to old school wires and brackets, and if you are unhappy with your rotated, tipped, or crooked teeth, Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi can help.

Dr. Valcarenghi is a licensed and preferred Invisalign® provider who has the experience and the expertise to design the perfect smile using clear plastic aligner trays.

Much like those custom made bleaching trays that Dr. Valcarenghi uses to whiten your teeth, Invisalign® is a series of clear plastic aligners that are made to fit your teeth. Each aligner is designed to swap out every week or two depending on your custom made plan. Unlike conventional wires and brackets, which require multiple monthly visits for adjustments, you will only need to see Dr. Ivan every six weeks to make sure that your custom trays are moving your teeth into the desired position.

Because you remove your clear plastic aligners when you eat, drink, brush and floss, you minimize the risks that come with conventional braces. It is impossible to brush under the wires and brackets, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease if you wear braces.

Conventional wires and brackets may have to be worn up to two years. The average treatment time for Invisalign® is between 12 and 18 months, with some people seeing dramatic results in as little as 6 months.

If Dr. Ivan deems you a good fit for Invisalign® pictures and impressions will be made of your teeth to help determine your overall plan. Once your aligners are ready, you will be given instructions for your customized Invisalign® plan.

Although Invisalign® isn’t for everyone, it may be right for you if your teeth are slightly:

  • Tipped
  • Crooked
  • Rotated
  • Misaligned
  • Have small gaps between your teeth

Thanks to Dr. Ivan, you don’t have to hide your smile anymore. Call or click and schedule a no obligation cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi who can determine what treatments, including Invisalign®, would be right for you. Call or click today.

Cosmetic Dentistry for the Smile You Deserve

Cosmetic Dentistry can take your less than impressive smile and turn it into something you can be proud to show off, and thanks to Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi, you will be happy to share your smile with everyone you know, including those you have just met.

Your smile is the first thing people notice when you meet them. If you are reluctant to show off your grin because of chipped, crooked, rotated, or tipped teeth, cosmetic dentistry could be the answer. If you have missing teeth or a gap between your front teeth, schedule a no obligation cosmetic dentistry consultation with Dr. Ivan.

Dr. Ivan Valcarenghi may recommend:

  • Dental implants
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Lumineers®
  • Invisalign®
  • Cosmetic bonding
  • Tooth Whitening

Dental Implants-The best replacement for missing teeth, dental implants can replace your missing teeth giving you a gapless smile that is healthier for you and your teeth and gums. Dental implants are surgically placed into your jaw before being capped with an artificial tooth or teeth.

Porcelain Veneers-Thin pieces of tooth shaped porcelain are used to reshape teeth, but are also the perfect solution if you have teeth that cannot be whitened with traditional methods. Porcelain veneers are permanent, as you will need to have some of the enamel on your teeth removed to make way for the veneers.

Lumineers®-The prepless solution for cosmetic veneers is not permanent and could be the right treatment if you are unsure about permanent porcelain veneers. Lumineers® require no removal of the enamel and are matched to the color of your natural teeth. Like traditional veneers, Lumineers® are bonded to the front of your teeth.

Invisalign®-Unlike conventional wires and brackets you remove the clear plastic aligners every time you brush, floss, eat, and drink. Invisalign® takes between 12 to 18 months while conventional braces could take up to two years.

Cosmetic Bonding-Teeth that are chipped, cracked, too long, or too short can be helped with cosmetic bonding. Dr. Ivan will prepare the tooth or teeth that are to be bonded before using a dental resin that matches the rest of your teeth. Although dental bonding is not as strong as porcelain veneers or dental crowns, bonding can last for 5 to 10 years if proper oral hygiene is practiced.
