Many patients desire to have a beautifully white smile. Teeth can become stained from everyday activities. From drinking coffee and tea to aging to lack of proper hygiene, teeth can easily stain. At Sunrise Dental Studio, we understand your desire for a whiter smile. With in-office bleaching, we can whiten your smile more effectively and efficiently. Compared to over-the-counter whitening, in-office whitening is much more effective. Dr. Yau creates custom trays for your teeth that make it easier for the whitening bleach to reach the crevices of your teeth. Additionally, Dr. Yau uses professional-grade whitening products which are activated by a blue light making it a more effective way to whiten. Whitening is also more efficient because, with Dr. Yau’s expertise, she can whiten your teeth numerous shades lighter than over-the-counter products.
Another way to whiten your smile is through dental veneers. Dental veneers can both whiten and enlarge your smile. Dental veneers are shells placed on the outside of your tooth. Dr. Yau matches the shells to your tooth color or a couple of shades lighter. To put the veneers first, Dr. Yau will take a digital impression of your teeth. Then, she sends the digital impression to the lab to create your veneers. The veneers are four to six shells placed on the top, bottom, or both sets of teeth. Dr. Yau places the veneers with dental bonding material. Then, she will shape the veneers to your liking.
Many also consider dental crowns as a cosmetic procedure. Dental crowns are very similar to dental veneers in that they cover your tooth to whiten and enlarge it. Dental crowns brighten your smile with small caps placed over the teeth. Dr. Yau places the crowns in a similar way to the dental veneers. Dr. Yau first prepares the teeth and takes a digital impression of your teeth. Then, once the crown comes in, it is placed and formed to your liking. Not only can dental crowns make your teeth appear whiter, but you can also change the size and shape of your teeth to your liking.
Many patients at Sunrise Dental Studio choose to straighten their smiles with Invisalign clear aligners. As compared to traditional metal braces, Invisalign clear aligners work quicker and more efficiently. To straighten your teeth, Dr. Yau will first take a digital impression of your teeth and map out the alterations of your teeth. Then, every 1 to 2 weeks, you will receive a new Invisalign clear aligner. As you advance in aligners, your teeth will form more into alignment. Before you know it, you will have a beautifully straight smile.
