Beautiful Smile! Teeth Whitening in Maple Grove

As the years go by, our teeth naturally lose their youthful luster. Dark colored foods and drinks speed up the process, but even people who avoid coffee, wine and cola are not immune to yellow or gray teeth. Want to brighten up your smile? Teeth whitening at Arbor Lakes Dental in Maple Grove is one of the quickest and most effective ways to recapture a beautiful smile.

Does Teeth Whitening Hurt?
Though some people experience a little short-term sensitivity, most have no pain at all.

There are several different methods for whitening teeth, but each uses a solution containing peroxide to remove the stains that have accumulated in the microscopic cracks in your tooth enamel.

DIY Whitening Products
The strips, mouthwashes and paint-on whiteners you find at the store use a lower concentration of whitening agent than in-office methods. They rarely remove all of the stains on your enamel. You are always better off having teeth whitening performed by a professional. This will protect your existing restorations and ensure the best possible results.

Don’t assume that tooth whitening offered at mall kiosks is risk-free. That industry is largely unregulated, and the staff often have little dental training.

At Arbor Lakes Dental, we offer our patients the Zoom! whitening system. Zoom! is a light-activated process that deep-cleans debris from tooth enamel and leaves you with a youthful whiteness you’ll never be able to get from products at the grocery store.

In addition to professional teeth whitening, Arbor  Lakes Dental in Maple Grove offers cosmetic dentistry services like porcelain veneers. We also provide family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.

How Can You Improve Your Smile Quickly?

Porcelain Veneers With porcelain veneers, you can revamp your smile without significant restorative dental work.

Porcelain veneers are glass-like, wafer-thin covers that are attached to the front of your teeth. Porcelain has been used in dentistry for many years because no other restorative material is such an excellent match for natural tooth enamel. Porcelain is translucent and can be matched to the color of any tooth. It is stronger than enamel and resists stains.

Dental ceramists who fabricate porcelain veneers are both artists and technicians. They create beautiful paper-thin wafers that adhere to teeth, correcting chips and stains. Porcelain veneers can also straighten crooked teeth for patients who don’t need orthodontic work.

Patients who receive porcelain veneers appreciate the less-invasive process of enhancing their smile. Newer techniques require no removal of healthy tooth enamel.

We would be happy to show you what veneers can do for your smile. If you are interested in orthodontics, ask us about Invisalign invisible braces!

What Can Veneers Do For Minneapolis Smiles?

porcelain veneers cost Minneapolis

Hello, and welcome to our Arbor Lakes Dental cosmetic dentistry blog. Today we are taking the time to answer a common question that many dental patients in the Minneapolis area have. The question is, “What exactly are veneers and how are they used in cosmetic dentistry?”

Veneers are thin shells made from tooth-colored substances. They are custom-made for each patient and are used to improve the appearance of teeth. Veneers are designed to cover the front part of the teeth and are most commonly employed to correct teeth that have been chipped, stained, decayed, or that are crooked.

If you visit your Champlin, Plymouth MN, or Osseo dentist for veneers, they will first make a model of your teeth. Next, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers, so you can be sure of a custom fit.

Since a little of the enamel from the tooth has to be removed so the veneers can be placed, this process is usually irreversible.

I hope that this blog entry has helped you to understand a little more about veneers and how they can help you to improve your smile. Along with other cosmetic dentistry procedures such as smile makeovers, and teeth whitening, the smile that you desire is really just a few dental visits away! If you are in the Osseo area and are looking for a dentist, give Arbor Lakes Dental a call. My name is Dr. Jamie Sledd and I have been a Maple Grove, Minnesota dentist since 1992.

Please call 763-515-1171 and a member of our fun staff can schedule an appointment for you and answer any questions you have about the following top services that we offer at Arbor Lakes Dental:

Perfect Teeth With Veneers

porcelain veneers price Minneapolis

Today’s blog post focuses on an effective and versatile cosmetic dental procedure – porcelain veneers.

Veneers are individual covers for the front part of teeth. They are an outstanding way to correct a myriad of tooth imperfections such as chips, stains, yellowing, unattractive shape or minimal misalignment.

Have you ever wanted a minimally-invasive facelift for a tooth without getting an entire crown? Veneers are your answer! Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.

How many veneers should you get? This depends on how many teeth you want to upgrade and the overall condition of your teeth. Dr. Sledd will counsel you on the best strategy.

The thickness, color, alignment, and shape of your teeth affect the outcome as well as whether you have any gum recession. Veneers are matched to your existing teeth so they will blend seamlessly, but if you are planning to treat several teeth, you definitely want to have them created in the same “batch” at the lab.

The first step in the veneer process is to make a model of your teeth to work from. After that, a dental technician will use the model to create the veneers to the precise size, shape, color, and level of translucency. Experienced cosmetic dentists and dental technicians elevate the level of artistry in this painstaking process.

Many patients wonder if veneers are as substantial as their natural teeth. Though the veneer tooth-prep process weakens the tooth slightly, with proper care, veneers can last up to 15 years. Porcelain veneers are more durable than dental bonding, which is sometimes used to repair the same types of imperfections. Dental bonding generally has a shorter life span than veneers, so keep this in mind when comparing the costs of the two procedures.

If you are looking for a dentist with an artistic eye for stunning porcelain veneers, give Arbor Lakes Dental a call. My name is Dr. Jamie Sledd and I have been serving Maple Grove, Minnesota since 1992.

The Arbor Lakes Dental Guide To Veneers

porcelain veneers cost Minneapolis

It’s easy to see why Maple Grove smile makeover patients and cosmetic dentists love porcelain veneers. They correct a multitude of cosmetic flaws and deliver celebrity-caliber results for my Minneapolis area patients.

If you are considering beautifying your smile with porcelain veneers, you want a trusted dentist with extensive experience performing this treatment. The porcelain veneer procedure is more complicated than many cosmetic dental patients realize.

A porcelain veneer is an extremely thin (about .5mm or 1/64 inch) shell that is permanently attached to the front of a tooth. They are custom made for each patient. Veneers cover chips, cracks, and stains. They can also improve the shape, size or length of a tooth.

While preparing a tooth for a veneer is less invasive than preparing a tooth for a crown, it is not a reversible procedure. A microscopically small amount of enamel must be removed to make room for the veneer. Thus, the tooth can never be restored to its original condition.

When performing the multi-step veneer procedure, the dentist must consider the surrounding teeth, the patient’s bite, the gums, the health of the affected teeth, and the patient’s goals and expectations. Most smiles contain varying shades of tooth enamel – sometimes a considerable range – further complicating the color selection process.

The dentist must also work closely with the dental lab technician who fabricates the veneers. The lab technician’s skill level and quality of materials is just as essential as the expertise of the cosmetic dentist.

Veneers are usually placed on the most visible teeth –  center stage, so to speak. They are on display every time the patient opens their mouth. This is definitely a procedure you want to get right the first time!

I am Dr. Jamie Sledd of Arbor Lakes Dental. I have been providing general and cosmetic dentistry in Maple Grove, Minnesota since 1992. If you are wondering if porcelain veneers would give you the smile you desire, I invite you to schedule a consultation by calling my office at 763-515-1171. We can discuss gum disease, cosmetic dentistry, and any questions you have. I want you to love your smile! -Jamie L. Sledd, DDS

Veneers Explained For Champlin Dental Patients

Hello! We are so glad you came to the Maple Grove dental health blog. This is the place where we take the time to answer some of the questions cosmetic dentistry patients in the Minneapolis area are curious about. Today we are discussing veneers. You may have heard the word veneer used in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry, and that is because they are a popular and effective cosmetic dentistry tool.

Veneers are covers for the front part of the teeth. They are usually used to correct tooth imperfections, such as chipping, staining, decay, or crooked teeth. Super-strong, tooth-colored porcelain laminate is shaped into thin shells and custom-fitted for each patient’s unique set of teeth.

Plymouth MN Teeth Whitening and Veneers

Teeth Whitening and Porcelain Veneers In Plymouth MN Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dentistry procedure in Plymouth MN and throughout Minnesota.

Numerous ads for whitening products contain terms such as ‘white brite’, ’22 carbamide peroxide’ and ‘peroxide teeth’. They look tempting, but how do you separate tooth bleaching fact from fiction?

First, and especially for our local Plymouth MN patients, we recommend talking to Jamie Sledd DDS at our Arbor Lakes Dental office. Just because teeth whitening products are readily available in Maple Grove and Plymouth MN, it doesn’t mean they are all safe or appropriate for every person. Getting a professional opinion is a good first step.

Don’t be fooled by smile whitening hype and risk damage, especially if you need tetracycline teeth whitening. If you have existing cosmetic dental work such as dental crowns, bonding, partial dentures or bridge work, it is especially important to talk to a Maple Grove dental professional about worry free dentistry teeth whitening.

Teeth whitening kits are not the only way to quickly improve your smile in Maple Grove. Many of your Plymouth MN and Champlin neighbors have benefited from porcelain veneers. There are several brands of veneers such as Lumineers by Cerinate, da Vinci and Mac. We can help you decide on which is best for you.

Veneers are sometimes called ‘instant orthodontics’ because they can correct tooth misalignment and gaps as well as provide instant teeth whitening.

Porcelain veneers can also fix chipped teeth and cover stains. The vast majority of Maple Grove veneer recipients are extremely pleased with the results.
