You always want to put your best face forward-and a beautiful smile is an important part of doing so. That’s why Dr. Udouj completed his postgraduate training at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies, a 62,000 square foot training facility in Nevada specializing in the latest cosmetic dentistry techniques. Because of this specialized training, we’re able to help you get that picture perfect smile you’ve always wanted, using a variety of new technologies for many different cosmetic conditions.
This procedure is a simple, quick, and safe tooth whitening process that delivers effective results in just under an hour. The lips and gums are isolated and ZOOM!® Whitening Gel is applied to the teeth. Take a first step in feeling good and looking great with brighter, whiter teeth in less than an hour. ZOOM!® teeth whitening is safe, effective and very fast. A special light activates the gel to give you teeth that are six to ten shades whiter-and you’ll see a brighter smile almost immediately.
Another solution for whiter teeth involves bleaching trays. For this procedure, an impression of your teeth is taken, and a tray is designed especially for your teeth. You then fill the trays at home with a specially prescribed bleaching solution and fit the tray over the teeth. Progress is monitored through periodic office visits to make sure that you’re achieving optimal results with the system.
Lifelike Porcelain Veneers
Porcelain veneers are the ultimate in cosmetic dentistry. These handcrafted porcelain coverings are custom made to eliminate most cosmetic concerns. Veneers are placed on the front teeth and may be indicated to replace old dental bondings, excessively large resin fillings, misaligned or misshaped teeth, chips, gaps, or stained teeth. Achieving that smile you deserve can be obtained in as little as two visits with minimal removal of your natural tooth structure.
Invisalign® “Invisible Braces”
With Invisalign® Invisible Braces, you can realign your teeth without calling attention to your mouth. This procedure involves a series of comfortable aligners that may be removed to eat or drink or to brush and floss. After two weeks, the aligner is replaced by a new one that moves your teeth a little closer to their optimal position. Week by week, your teeth are adjusted; and after as little as nine months, you’ll have the smile you want, no metal required.
Laser Gum Recontouring (Gummy Tuck)
If you’re uncomfortable about your gummy smile, recontouring may be a perfect option. Because of the use of a laser, this procedure is relatively easy with little discomfort. Dr. Udouj uses the laser to reshape the gum line, eliminating or reforming excess tissue.This makes your smile more even and makes the teeth appear larger and more natural, opening up a smile you’ll be thrilled with.
Non-Metal Restorations – Mercury Free Fillings
Dark metal/mercury fillings can be unsightly; they let the world know about your cavities every time you smile. Dr. Udouj uses a tooth-colored filling material that blends in seamlessly with your teeth. Not only do metal free fillings look better, but, because they are bonded to your natural tooth structure, help restore the tooth up to 80% of its original strength. Metal/mercury fillings do not strengthen the tooth and constantly corrode. The metal expands and contracts with hot and cold temperature changes and can cause teeth to crack resulting in the need for more treatment.
Porcelain or Resin Restorations – Inlays, Onlays & Crowns
Inlays, Onlays, and Crowns are bonded restorations that contain no metal and are a solution to restore teeth to ideal function and cosmetic beauty. Inlays/Onlays are porcelain or resin restorations used to replace large fillings or cavities on the back teeth. With inlays and onlays, Dr. Udouj is able to preserve more of your natural tooth structure. A full coverage crown may be needed to restore a tooth that has a large filling, crack, or fracture in the tooth.
