Are you thinking about cosmetic dentistry? Dental veneers are an amazing option to totally redo your smile quickly and beautifully. Best of all – you control the outcome. With dental veneers, patients get to choose their perfect size, shape, and shade of the smile they want.
When choosing the shade of your smile, you will have to consider several aspects. Some people want a natural looking smile close to their natural color while others want a bright, white Hollywood smile. But what if you aren’t getting full-mouth veneers? How will you make your new teeth match your existing teeth? How much time and money do you want to invest? Should you whiten your teeth before dental veneers?
The dental implant process begins when you schedule a consultation with your dentist. From there, they’ll be able to outline an incredibly thorough treatment plan to restore your smile, including what type of implant-retained restoration you need. There are three main types: single tooth implants that hold a crown, an implant bridge or partial to replace several teeth, or a complete implant denture to restore an entire arch of teeth. Read on to learn about the three different types of implants that your dentist may suggest during your consultation.

We love Invisalign for more reasons that we can count. It may be because almost all of us here at Advanced Dental Care have undergone the treatment and been amazed by the results or because we have witnessed first hand how many smiles have been transformed by this clear and easy-to-use technology.
This patient chose Dr. Jeremy Jorgenson for her Invisalign makeover, because he is a Gold Plus Invisalign provider with hundreds of hours of training and casework. At the initial consult, the patient discussed her concerns about the look of her smile with Dr. Jorgenson. Not only were there aesthetic concerns, but Dr. Jorgenson also determined she was experiencing both severe crowding and slight overbite which also affect the health of the smile. Our staff performed an iTero digital scan and let the patient know we could correct it all in a little over a year. The patient was ecstatic and wanted to move forward right away.
Before getting stated with the Invisalign treatment, Dr. Jorgenson needed to ensure there would be enough space for the teeth once they were properly aligned. He removed one tooth on each side of the upper arch. Once that tooth removal procedure was completed, the patient was ready to start her trays.
At her first treatment visit, Dr. Jorgenson placed attachments on the teeth to assist with moving the teeth correctly, made sure the initial trays fit properly, and gave instructions on wear. Invisalign trays need to be worn for approximately 22 hours a day and only removed for eating and brushing/flossing to ensure the best results in a timely manner.
The patient started with 2-week wear, switching to the next set of trays in her prescription every 2 weeks. With great on-track results at each subsequent visit, Dr. Jorgenson switched her to 1-week wear. She also chose to use Propel to speed up the process.
In about 15 months, she was finished with treatment and now has an absolutely gorgeous, straight smile she can be proud of! We are so thankful to have been a part of her Invisalign journey.
