The most beautiful crown for a tooth is, without question, all-porcelain or all-ceramic. With porcelain fused to metal crowns, there has to be an opaque layer put over the metal to block out its color. This makes it impossible to have a translucent restoration that mimics the translucency of natural teeth. Only with pure porcelain or pure ceramic can you have such translucency.
A veneer is a small, thin layer of porcelain which is bonded to the front of a tooth to change the tooth’s shape, position and color. Veneers do not stain over time and with proper care can last a lifetime. Veneers take two dental appointments to complete. At the first visit, Dr. Sayyah will prepare the teeth for the veneers and take an impression to send to the laboratory. The porcelain veneer is created in a dental laboratory based on the preparation completed by Dr. Sayyah. When you leave your first veneer appointment your temporary veneers will look very similar to your permanent veneers. This gives you a great opportunity to see the beautiful results before the veneers are complete. At the second appointment the veneers are bonded to your tooth.
For many people, the idea of enduring braces as an adult is very unappealing. Fortunately, you can have straight teeth without having a mouth full of metal for months on end. “Instant orthodontics” refers to a special technique performed by Dr. Sayyah in which porcelain veneers are used to make teeth appear straighter. A beautiful, straight smile can now be attained in one appointment instead of over the course of months or even years.
Whitening is the most common cosmetic dental procedure performed today. Redmond Town Dental offers three different types of whitening to allow you to choose the system which best fits your needs. Each whitening product has advantages and disadvantages. How often you have to re-whiten your teeth is based on how much coffee, tea, soda, red wine and other items you consume each day. Also, smoking and other tobacco products will stain your teeth. If you have any questions about which type of whitening is right for you, please speak with Dr. Sayyah.
1. Custom tray whitening is a system which involves the use of a flexible plastic tray which is formed to fit your teeth exactly. These trays must be loaded with the whitening gel just before use. These trays are worn for 1-2 hours each time or they can be worn while you sleep. This type of whitening is best for people who have internal tooth staining like that caused by ingestion of certain antibiotics as a child.
2. Professional whitening kit is a new type of whitening which is slowly dominating all types of whitening. This product is worn in a way very similar to over-the-counter strip products. The difference of the from other strip products is that because it is dispensed by a dentist the concentration of whitening material is much greater and therefore you can achieve the result you desire much faster. Also, this product contains a barrier to protect your gums, has a desensitizing agent incorporated in it and it is shaped to fit the form of your mouth very closely.
3. ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening is the latest, most effective in-office tooth whitening procedure available. We specialize in teeth whitening with the ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening procedure. With ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening, our patients see results almost immediately. Unlike other teeth whitening procedures, with ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening, teeth are typically six to 10 shades lighter in one short office visit. After the ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening procedure, our patients receive an easy to use teeth whitening touch-up kit that they can use at home to retouch their teeth whenever stains begin to reappear. With ZOOM! 2™ Tooth Whitening and use of the home teeth whitening touch-up kit offered at our office, your beautiful white teeth can last indefinitely. During this procedure you can watch a movie or listen to music with our headphones.
