You can also choose to take a home a whitening kit after your in-office treatment to touchup your smile conveniently at home.
Invisalign clear braces
As an adult, crooked teeth can have a significant impact on your personal and professional self-image. Unfortunately, many patients find the idea of wearing metal braces for a couple of years equally awkward. With Invisalign® clear braces, you can enjoy the benefits of a straighter smile without the inconvenience of metal orthodontic braces
A series of clear acrylic aligners can be designed to gradually guide crooked teeth into straighter positions for a more balanced and attractive smile. In addition to being virtually invisible, Invisalign’s aligners are also removable, making it easier to eat the same foods and brush and floss your teeth regularly.
Temporomandibular joint and muscle disorders, commonly called "TMJ," are a group of conditions that cause pain and dysfunction in the jaw joint and the muscles that control jaw movement. It's not always clear to the exact cause but typically it involves para-functional clenching or grinding at night or a problem with the way the teeth come together.
If "TMJ" symptoms cause significant, long term pain treatment by a dentist may be indicated. Treatment could range from palliative treatment, splint therapy, bite adjustment or even orthodontics to correct the bite.
Your smile encompasses more than just your teeth and gums; its appearance is also affected by the facial features around it. Botox® is a popular cosmetic treatment that helps erase facial wrinkles, and can also be used to ease stress on the jaw and symptoms related to TMJ disorder. As part of your smile makeover, Dr. Hutto will consult with you to determine if you, too, might benefit from Botox® treatment.
Juvéderm™ is an exciting new solution that corrects moderate to severe wrinkles in and around the lips. Juvéderm™ is a biocompatible, gel-based filler that can provide up to a year or more of youth-rejuvenating results, and can often be used in conjunction with a complete smile makeover. After a personal consultation, your dentist can help you determine if Juvéderm™ is the right cosmetic touchup option for you.
CAT Scan Radiography
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray machine used in situations where regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. This type of CT scanner by Vatech America uses a special type of technology to generate three dimensional (3-D) images of dental structures, soft tissues, nerve paths and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. Images obtained with cone beam CT allow for more precise treatment planning when planning placement of dental implants.
