Everybody loves a brilliantly white smile. As a result, teeth whitening and bleaching procedures have become an incredibly popular way to brighten teeth. Many of our patients under Dr. Berger, a premier Sonora cosmetic dentist, achieve the smile they’ve always wanted with Sonora Dentist’s hassle-free take-home whitening trays.
Teeth whitening is a safe and inexpensive procedure that can have an enormous impact on the complexion of your smile. Depending on your preference, this Sonora dentist can lighten only the upper teeth or both upper and lower sets. We provide you with specially designed trays that are filled with a bleaching compound that removes stains from tooth enamel. Once your teeth have reached the level of whiteness you desire, you only need to undergo occasional treatments to maintain your new smile.
Dental veneers – occasionally referred to as porcelain veneers – are wafer-thin, custom-created shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of your teeth in order to improve appearance. Veneers are bonded directly to the front of your teeth, helping to change their length, size, shape and color. Dental veneers are typically made from a resin composite or porcelain materials. Visit our premier Sonora cosmetic dentist Dr. Berger to receive high-quality treatment.
Dental veneers are typically used to treat a variety of common oral health problems, including:
- Discolored teeth
- Teeth that have worn down
- Teeth that have become broken or chipped
- Teeth that are irregularly shaped, uneven or misaligned
- Teeth with excessively large gaps between them
In most cases, it takes three visits with Dr. Berger before dental veneers can be completed. The first visit involves a consultation with Dr. Berger, while the next two visits involve the creation and application of veneers to the surface of your teeth. This Sonora dentist ensures that every patient’s veneers are made using only the highest quality materials, and that only the most advanced and proven compounds are used as part of the bonding process.
A tooth-shaped “cap” that fits over a tooth, dental crowns are used to cover a tooth and restore its strength, size and shape, while also improving its appearance. When cemented into place, crowns will completely encase the visible surface area of a tooth that lies above the gum line.
A number of oral health problems may require a patient to receive a dental crown, including:
- To protect a weakened tooth from breaking or to hold together a tooth that has cracked
- To restore a broken tooth to health or to improve a tooth that has been severely worn down
- To support and cover a tooth that has received a large filling when not much tooth surface remains
- To hold a dental bridge into position
- To cover a severely discolored or misshapen tooth
- To cover a dental implant
Sonora cosmetic dentist Dr. Berger will work with you to determine if your oral health problems require the use of a dental crown.
Dental inlays and onlays made from porcelain materials are used to repair moderately decayed or damaged teeth. Dr. Berger uses dental inlays and onlays to restore a tooth that has suffered too much damage to be repaired with a filling, but not damaged enough that it needs a crown. Dental inlays and onlays help to save the healthy areas of an injured tooth, and provide the stability and strength needed for normal chewing.
Dental inlays are placed in the center area of a tooth, while dental onlays are placed on the outside and inside areas, or points, of a tooth. Dental inlays and onlays are also commonly referred to as partial crowns or indirect fillings. They serve as a less aggressive form of treatment when compared to full crowns.
