Which procedure or procedures will improve my smile the most?
That depends on the individual. Each person has a unique mouth and a unique smile, so the right procedure for you will depend on the characteristics of your mouth and smile. At your consultation, Las Vegas dentists Dr. Chin and Dr. Pharar can help you determine the best course of action for your smile makeover procedure. They will base this decision on the characteristics of your smile and your desired results.
How long will my smile makeover take?
That depends on the extensiveness of your treatment. If all you need is to brighten your smile a little, a tooth whitening session can be performed within an hour-long visit. If you opt for porcelain veneers, it will take 2-3 visits to complete your treatment and these visits will be spread out over about a month.
Are professional whitening treatments better than over-the-counter products I can buy at the drug store?
Absolutely. Professional tooth whitening treatments will provide you with much better results, whether you choose to have the whitening done in our office or at home with one of our take-home kits. The whitening agents in the professional-strength gels that we use will be much more effective and will lighten your smile by several more shades than the over-the-counter treatments. Professional tooth whitening systems also use custom-made trays that fit the contours of your teeth more accurately than the generic trays provided by over-the-counter kits. When you whiten your teeth using a tray that fits your mouth poorly, it will lead to uneven whitening and can potentially cause gum irritation.
At Drs. Chin , we use the Zoom2® tooth whitening system, one of the most advanced whitening technologies available today. Zoom Whitening is the bleaching system that was used on the very popular Extreme Makeover television show.
How long will my new smile last?
At Drs. Chin , we strive to make your smile makeover last for the rest of your life. If you take the proper steps to maintain good oral hygiene, your new smile should last for a very long time. If over time you feel that you need a touch-up or a whitening treatment, Dr. Robert Chin and Dr. Jessica Pharar can discuss options with you to determine what is right for you.
