Facial Aesthetics

 

Laughter, sadness, anger and surprise – your face shows all of your emotions to the world. And a lifetime of emotions means your facial muscles have been put to the test, leading to wrinkles, crow's feet, and laugh lines.

All these signs of emotion can leave you looking older than your years – but thanks to today's technology, we can significantly reduce their appearance on your face.

The products we utilize are medically approved for safety and are extraordinarily effective agents in their youth-rejuvenation facial care treatments and to effectively and safely create virtually "instant," breathtaking changes in the youthfulness, elasticity and radiance of the skin of the face.

 

 

Smile Makeovers is a series of steps to ensure that you get just what you want with your new smile. A highly technical process, Smile Makeovers requires great skill and experience, with meticulous attention to detail, to achieve a natural result for your smile.

To ensure you get the beautifulcand long lasting smile you've been wanting, at Overton Dental Practice we incorporate two equally important elements in your Smile Design:
-Form - the beauty of your smile, including colour, shading, proportion and shape
-Function - the way your smile (or bite) works when your teeth come together

Best of all, you don't have to wait several weeks or months for your Smile Design. In as few as two appointments, the smile makeover you've been dreaming of can become a reality. Looking your best never felt better!

We use the Zoom! Advanced Powerchairside whitening procedure as seen on the television show Extreme Makeover. The procedure for Zoom! whitening is safe, quick and painless.

 

Before
Over time our teeth tend to become discolored or stained. Whether this is from smoking, coffee, or any other foods, a beautiful smile could be closer than you think. We offer a safe, inexpensive solution to an unsightly smile.

 

 

After
The first step is to isolate the teeth and protect the gums and lips. When this has been accomplished, the whitening gel is placed on the teeth. The gel is activated by a specially designed light that is directed at the teeth. The entire procedure takes just over an hour.

Invisalign - an invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces.

 

invis

It uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign are removable and comfortable. Invisalign, however are not suited for all cases and being removable, discipline and compliance on the patient's part is required.

Porcelain veneers, are thin all porcelain wafer pieces placed over the front teeth to change color shape of the teeth.

The procedure usually requires three trips to the dentist:

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning: During this appointment your dentist will examine your teeth to make sure dental veneers are appropriate for you and discuss what the procedure will involve and some of its limitations. He or she also may take X-rays and possibly make impressions of your mouth and teeth.
 
  • Preparation: To prepare a tooth for a veneer, your dentist will remove about ½ millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface. Next, your dentist will make a model or impression of your tooth. This model is sent out to a dental laboratory.
 
  • Bonding: Your tooth will be cleaned, polished and etched. A  special cement is applied to the veneer and the veneer is then placed on your tooth.

Dental Implants allow us to replace missing teeth without any modifications to the teeth adjacent to space. The process involves embedding a titanium screw or post into the jawbone, creating a stable base for a crown. Dental implants can achieve the look and feel of natural teeth.

1: Before the procedure- The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.

2: Installing the implant-The implant is installed. At this time, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you eat and function like normal almost immediately. Sometimes the implant will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.

3: Attaching the new crown- The final step is the placement of the permanent tooth. No additional treatment is needed. You should expect the new tooth to fit and function just like a natural tooth.

 

A denture replaces missing teeth and adjacent tissues. Unlike dental bridges and implants, a denture is removable. 

There are two basic types of dentures:

  • Complete Dentures
  • Partial Dentures

 

Complete Dentures 
Complete dentures or Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. Implant supported overdentures are an alternate to conventional dentures whereby a full dentures is placed over the dental implants with metal bar/balls that gives better retention. The framework of complete dentures may be made of resin, metal or a combination.

 

 

Partial Dentures 
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal clasps or precision attachments that holds the denture in place in the mouth.
A dental bridge is one method to fill a gap created by a missing tooth (or teeth). A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap. The false tooth is called pontic and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
 First Visit 
The natural teeth adjacent to the missing gap are reshaped to receive the dental bridge. Records are taken and approved with the patient to determine the color, bite, length and shape of the bridge. An impression of your teeth are made and sent to a dental lab where the individualized bridge is fabricated. A temporary bridge is placed on to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the permanent bridge is made.
 
 
 
 
 
  Second Visit 
The temporary bridge is removed. The new permanent bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit. A quality assurance check is done for any re-adjustments of the dental bridge. Multiple visits may be required to check the fit of the metal framework and bite. This is dependent on each individual's case. The permanent bridge is fitted and cemented into place on the teeth.
A dental crown or dental cap is a custom made restoration that covers a tooth with sustained significant loss of structure. They are analogical to being a thimble capped over your finger. Dental crowns are used to restore teeth to a certain shape and size. They provide strength and improve the appearance of the tooth.

First Visit 
Local anesthesia is administered at the region for crown tooth preparation .The natural tooth is reshaped to receive the new dental crown. Records are taken and approved with the patient to determine the colour, bite and shape of the crown.
