Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are a thin, semi-translucent laminate permanently bonded to your teeth. While they’re not suitable for every patient, veneers are the most aesthetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions involving the front teeth, including:

  • Diastemas (spaces between teeth)
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Unsightly, stained, or washed-out fillings
  • Permanently stained or discolored teeth that can’t be bleached
  • Crooked teeth

Teeth Whitening

Teeth sometimes stain or become yellowed with age and use, but there are safe, economical, and uncomplicated ways to have whiter, brighter teeth. At one time, teeth whitening was only done in the dentists’ office, and only a select few could afford this luxury. Now, with the latest developments in whitening, practically everyone can afford whiter teeth!

The home whitening system provides great results with whiter teeth in as little as three days! This method of whitening is done entirely at home.  So you can do it at your convenience and is very reasonably priced.

Invisalign

Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. Whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted, Invisalign may be right for you.

Upon an initial examination, Dr. O’Brien will decide if Invisalign is right for you. She will then write a treatment plan and take an impression of your teeth. Thanks to the latest advances in 3-D computer technology, Invisalign carefully translates Dr. O’Brien’s instructions into a series of precisely customized aligners. The aligners will move your teeth gradually week by week until you achieve the smile you have always desired.

Finally, no more braces and nothing to hold you back! Dr. O’Brien will work with you to get the beautiful smile you have always wanted.

Laser Dentistry

Lasers are used for many dental procedures, including tissue recontouring, herpes lesions, and aphthous ulcers. The laser treatment is precise and eliminates bleeding. Laser therapy produces amazing success in treating aphthous ulcers and healing is considerably fast. The main goal of laser therapy is to stop the pain, and the laser triggers a rapid healing response.

Benefits of Laser Treatment

  • Affordable and often covered by dental insurance
  • Stops progression of the ulcer
  • Only takes a few minutes
  • No anesthesia
