What is Invisalign®?

invislign

Invisalign® has changed the face of orthodontics. Instead of wires attached to your teeth, your teeth can now be straightened invisibly.

Invisalign® is clear.You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. Invisalign® is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene. Invisalign® is comfortable. No metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation, and less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.

The Invisalign® process has been proven effective in clinical research and in orthodontic practices nationwide. However, only a certified dentist like Dr.Truong can undertake this procedure.

How Does Invisalign® Work?

A set of aligners are worn for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position. You will visit us approximately once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 11 months with the average number of aligners worn during treatment between 18 and 30. This of course will vary from case to case.

The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Truong’s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology provided by the Invisalign® company.

If your teeth are badly stained, shaped or crooked – your smile may benefit from having veneers placed onto the surface of the affected teeth. Dr. Xen Truong focus on fine details and her perfectionism is an expert at improving teeth through the use of porcelain veneers.

Why Veneers?

With porcelain veneers you can mask tooth defects like stains caused by tetracycline, an injured tooth or other defects that result from such procedures as a root-canal. Veneers are ideal for masking discolored fillings found in the front of your mouth. Have a gap between your front teeth or a visibly chipped tooth? Dax Dental’s can fix that too.

Dax Dental : Florida’s GLO Whitening Specialists

GLO Whitening lightens tooth enamel and dentin using a bleaching process. The entire in-office procedure takes about ONE hour.

Hydrogen peroxide, the bleaching agent in the GLO whitening gel, is activated by laser. As the light breaks down the hydrogen peroxide, oxygen enters your enamel and dentin, bleaching any colored substances while leaving the rest of the tooth unchanged.

If you follow the simple, post-whitening care instructions, your teeth should remain whiter than your original color for some time to come. Proper follow-up care includes daily flossing, twice-daily brushing and occasional touch-ups with GLO Weekender or Nite White gel.

You may experience some sensitivity during the GLO treatment, although the warmth of the laser light should alleviate any discomfort. If your teeth or gums tend to be sensitive, you might ask your dentist for anti-sensitivity toothpaste, to be used prior to treatment.

Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jaw or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.

Dax Dental: Porcelain Veneers

If your teeth are badly stained, shaped or crooked – your smile may benefit from having veneers placed onto the surface of the affected teeth. Dr. Xen Truong – is a leading specialist for veneers in the Florida area – and an expert at improving teeth through the use of porcelain veneers.

Why veneers? With porcelain veneers you can mask tooth defects like stains caused by tetracycline, an injured tooth or other defects that result from such procedures as a root-canal. Veneers are ideal for masking discolored fillings found in the front of your mouth. Have a gap between your front teeth or a visibly chipped tooth? Dax Dental’s Florida Dental specialists can fix that too.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Veneers are simply thin pieces of porcelain or plastic that is cemented over the front of your teeth in order to change their color or shape. Porcelain veneers are primarily used on teeth with uneven surfaces or that are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.

At our Florida veneers suite, the procedure for implementing the porcelain veneers is simple. In fact, little anesthesia is needed. The advantages of veneers are that they have longer life expectancy and color stability than bonding and are highly resistant to the permanent staining that can be caused by coffee, tea and cigarette smoking.

Dax Dental Veneers: The Process

Typically, it takes three appointments for a veneer restoration. The first appointment is dedicated to diagnosis and treatment planning. The second is to prepare for the procedure. And the final is to complete the bonding of the veneers.

During the preparation visit, which usually last two to three hours, your teeth will be lightly buffed in order to make room for the slight additional thickness added by the porcelain veneers. Typically, about a half a millimeter of the tooth is removed. Depending on the individual, this may require a local anesthetic. It is also during this first visit that a mold of your teeth is taken and sent to our master technician for the creation of the porcelain veneers.

During your third visit, which also last about two hours, the veneers are placed onto the teeth using water or glycerine in order to ensure they fit and to get a sense of the shade and color. While the veneers are resting on your teeth, your dentist will adjust them with various shades of cement in order to match the color of your teeth.
