Invisalign clear aligners, also called invisible braces, are practically invisible acrylic appliances which move teeth into healthier and more attractive positions. A discreet alternative to metal or ceramic braces, Invisalign helps millions of adults and older teens achieve straight smiles with less discomfort, in less time, with easier hygiene and no dietary restrictions. The 22 to 33 customized aligner pairs fit tightly over top and bottom teeth and create a new look in half the treatment time of traditional braces.
Professional teeth whitening brightens dull, discolored tooth enamel by as many as 8 shades of color. Leatherwood Dental offers Philips Zoom! teeth whitening for amazing color improvement in just about one hour. Used by millions of adults across the country, Philips Zoom whitening is very safe and comfortable, too.
At-home teeth whitening is gradual but just as effective. Both methods involve application of concentrated hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide gel. Results last with daily brushing and flossing, twice a year cleanings with Dr. Leatherwood, touch-ups and eliminating or reducing richly pigmented foods and beverages and of course, smoking.
Porcelain veneers cover stubborn stains, odd shape, cracks and chips. Termed “instant orthodontics,” these extremely thin shells of fine ceramic makeover shape, size and color of one or more healthy teeth. Porcelain veneers are considered an irreversible change. They strengthen teeth, and with good care, the new smile lasts for many years.
