Trusted Cosmetic Dentistry
The aesthetics of your smile is something we emphasize in everything we do at Olympic Dental. Whether we are replacing missing teeth with dental implants and custom crowns or repairing an area of decay with a tooth-colored filling, we want your smile to be restored with optimal health and exceptional beauty. When it comes to cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Gor offers the following services:
Teeth WhiteningTeeth whitening is a process that will make your smile whiter if they are discolored. Approaches to whitening your smile include in-office whitening and at-home whitening.
With in-office whitening, you simply relax while we take care of the whitening procedure. In-office whitening is done in our office using stronger bleaching agents than are available for home use. Dr. Gor will apply a protective gel to your gums to protect the oral soft tissues. The bleaching agent is then applied to your teeth, and a special light may be used. In as little as 45 minutes you will have your teeth up to 8 shades whiter.
At-home whitening gives you the option of using professional-strength whitening products at your convenience. We will make you custom molded trays that offer full coverage of your teeth. We will teach you how to utilize high-potency gels inside these trays for 30 minutes a day. When used as instructed, you will achieve the same great results as in-office whitening in one-two weeks.
BondingDental bonding on the front teeth is an excellent method for repairing minor imperfections such as chips and stains. It can also be used to fill gaps between the teeth. Although no cosmetic dentistry procedure can take the place of good oral and periodontal hygiene, dental bonding can brighten your smile quickly and easily.
Dr. Gor will prepare your tooth for treatment by roughening and shaping or contouring the surface. Next he will apply a conditioning solution and bonding agent that together act as a strong adhesive or glue, to ensure that the composite will adhere. Next he will apply the putty-like tooth colored composite material, sculpting it to correct the problem areas. Several layers of the composite material may be necessary in order to achieve the best results. To cure and harden the material, a high-intensity light is used. Finally, he will smooth and polish your tooth to give it an even, natural color.
VeneersA veneer is a thin porcelain shell that is bonded (permanently glued) to the front surface of your tooth. Veneers may be used to completely conceal imperfections such as chips, cracks, discoloration, crookedness and gaps. Veneers can transform a smile in just two office visits and if maintained properly, can provide a smile makeover that can last for many years.
The steps to place porcelain veneers:
Dr. Gor administers local anesthetic and after it has taken effect, he will remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth where needed. This makes room to accommodate the width of the veneer and prevents your restored teeth from being thick and unnatural.
Next, He makes a mold or impression of the prepared teeth. This is sent to a dental laboratory where they can make a replica model of your teeth to custom make your veneers.
Dr. Gor, with your help, will determine a shade that will be best for you.
Temporary veneers are placed and worn until the permanent veneers are ready.
Dr. Gor administers local anesthetic and after it has taken effect, he will remove the temporary veneers.
After cleaning the teeth, the veneers are bonded to place and buffed to a shine.
If needed, further adjustments may be done at a subsequent appointment.
Restorative DentistryRestorative dentistry is typically described as the management of dental issues that relate to both the functional and aesthetic nature of the mouth, teeth, and gums. Restorative dental techniques take into account the function of the mouth and teeth as well as their appearance. Broken, cracked, loose, damaged, or diseased teeth all pose severe issues with the proper overall functioning of the mouth. These problems can create issues with chewing food properly, potentially leading to nutrient deficiencies or serious health problems. Additionally, these same tooth problems can be a huge source of embarrassment and loss of self-esteem for those suffering from them. Restorative dental procedures aim to provide the patient with a fully functional mouth that is also attractive in appearance.
Dr. Gor has led our practice for nearly a decade with unsurpassed expertise and a gentle, patient-centered approach. He is a distinguished graduate from The Center for Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry (CARD) with advanced training under a number of elite cosmetic dentists. When it comes to improving the look of your smile, you can trust that he understands how to blend his artistic eye with the skill and knowledge of modern dentistry to create the best possible outcome.
