Cosmetic Dental Treatments

Dental Imaging and Cosmetic Dentistry

With the help of our Patient Gallery imaging system, we are able to show a patient what their completed cosmetic dentistry will look like before we start. Whether its whitening your smile, closing the space between your teeth or bridging a gap from a missing tooth, Fox Gentle Dentistry can do it all.

Porcelain Veneers/Lumineers

Veneers are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your front teeth. In this process the tooth is prepared by the dentist and an impression is taken for our lab to process a porcelain facing which is cemented to your tooth at a second appointment. These veneers are contact thin but can mask out dark stains or enamel defects while giving a straighter and brighter look!

Teeth Whitening

At Fox Gentle Dentistry, we offer two different methods of whitening your teeth:

  1. Professional Strength Crest White Strips are thin strips which are applied by the patient to their upper and lower teeth for ½ hour, two times a day. The professional kit contains a 3 week supply of strips. They are four times stronger than the ones that available at your local retail stores.
  2. Custom made home bleaching trays are another option for whitening your teeth. Our staff will take impressions of your teeth from which they will make the trays. You will be given detailed instructions on how to dispense the whitening gel, how long and how often to wear your trays, the percentage of gel that is right for you and proper care of your trays. The trays may be stored in the case provided and for your future whitening needs you can return to our office to purchase additional gel.

Ultrasonic Cleaning and Tooth Polishing

Hand scaling is only one of the options used by our hygienists to provide a thorough cleaning and soft tissue treatment to our patients. Fox Gentle Dentistry uses ultrasonic cleaning units to aid in the cleaning process. Using our piezo scalers and cavitrons in conjunction with hand scaling, they can remove the hard deposits above and below the gum line in a more efficient manner. Using the piezo scaler for irrigating these areas with a medicated mouth rinse is very beneficial in treating disease. The use of the prophy jet will remove stubborn stains that regular polishing may not be able to remove.
