If you have discolored, chipped, or misshapen teeth, Dr. Fisher may recommend veneers as a cosmetic dental solution. Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite material that are custom-made to fit over
the front surface of your teeth, improving their appearance.
Dr. Fisher will start by examining your teeth to determine if veneers are the best treatment option for you. She will then take impressions of your teeth and prepare them for the veneers by removing a small amount of enamel
from the front surface of your teeth.
Next, Dr. Fisher will work with a dental laboratory to create custom-made veneers that match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. She may also provide you with temporary veneers to wear while your permanent veneers are being created.
Once your permanent veneers are ready, Dr. Fisher will check the fit and color to ensure that they match your natural teeth. She will then use a special adhesive to bond the veneers to your teeth and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.
Veneers can help to improve the appearance of your teeth and give you a brighter, more confident smile. Dr. Fisher has the expertise and experience to ensure that your veneers are custom-made to fit your specific needs and that the procedure is performed with minimal discomfort. She will also provide aftercare instructions to help you maintain your new smile for years to come.
If you have minor cosmetic dental issues such as chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth, Dr. Fisher may recommend bonding as a solution. Bonding is a procedure where a tooth-colored composite resin material is applied to
your teeth to improve their appearance.
Dr. Fisher will start by examining your teeth and discussing your goals for your smile. She will then prepare the surface of your teeth by roughening them and applying a conditioning liquid. This helps the bonding material adhere to your teeth.
Next, Dr. Fisher will apply the composite resin material to your teeth and sculpt it to the desired shape. She will then use a special light to harden the material and bond it to your teeth.
Bonding is a quick and relatively painless procedure that can be completed in one visit to Dr. Fisher's office. It is an affordable option for improving the appearance of your teeth, and the composite resin material can be color-matched to your natural teeth for a seamless, natural-looking result.
Dr. Fisher has the expertise and experience to ensure that your bonding procedure is performed with minimal discomfort and that the composite resin material is applied in a way that enhances the appearance of your smile. She will also provide aftercare instructions to help you maintain your newly bonded teeth for years to come.
Whitening is a dental treatment that aims to improve the appearance of discolored or stained teeth by removing surface stains and lightening the underlying tooth structure. If you're considering whitening, Dr. Fisher can help you achieve a brighter, more radiant smile.
During the whitening process, Dr. Fisher will apply a specialized gel to your teeth that contains a bleaching agent, typically hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. The gel will be activated using a special light, which helps to break down the stains and discoloration on your teeth. Depending on the type of whitening treatment you choose, the procedure may take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour or more.
Dr. Fisher will closely monitor the whitening process to ensure that your teeth are not over-bleached, which can cause sensitivity or damage to the enamel. After the treatment, you may notice some temporary sensitivity or discomfort, but this should subside within a few days.
It's important to note that whitening is not a permanent solution, and you may need to repeat the treatment every few years to maintain your results. Additionally, certain lifestyle habits such as smoking or drinking coffee, tea, or red wine can cause new stains to form on your teeth over time, so it's important to maintain good oral hygiene and minimize your consumption of stain-causing substances.
Overall, if you're looking to enhance your smile and boost your confidence, whitening may be a great option for you. Dr. Fisher can help you determine the best course of treatment based on your individual needs and goals, and guide you through the process to achieve the best possible results.
