Invisalign straightens crooked chompers with a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of old-fashioned orthodontia. The Invisalign process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial 30-minute exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, paves the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift walnut crackers into perfect alignment. Depending on the client’s teeth, as few as 12 or as many as 48 separate aligners will need to be worn during a period of 11–18 months before the straightening effect finally self-actuates in a sudden burst of pink smoke and slobber. Aligners are only removed when eating, brushing, flossing, or modeling a finely clenched jaw. View some Invisalign FAQs here.
At The Hills Dental Care, Dr. Erin Scimone uses a special intraoral camera that helps her see every angle in a client’s mouth on a monitor or Times Square billboard for easier viewing. That technology, along with digital x-rays, best unearths trouble areas that can be corrected with fillings, root canals, and dental implants. The dentist also bolsters smiles with custom-crafted veneers and teeth-whitening sessions.
The mouth maestros at Kingston Dental Care illuminate smiles with the light-activated Zoom! process, effectively whitening chompers in 45- to 60-minute appointments. After sipping a complimentary beverage in the waiting room, patients relax in cushioned chairs as dental professionals blanket tarnished teeth in a gel formulated to lighten mouth ivories an average of eight shades under the rays of a special Zoom! lamp. Changes are visible right after the treatment, sending patients back into the world ready to say cheese and consume cheese with confidence.

Bleaching is a non-invasive dental treatment that whitens teeth an average of four shades. Your treatment begins with a 20-minute consultation with Dr. William J. Schlotz, who will review dental history and take impressions to make customized, clear plastic whitening trays. About a week later, stop by the office to pick up your whitening treatment package and instructions on how to use it on your soon-to-be-sparkling mouth bones. The average length of the whitening treatment is about five weeks, and visible results become apparent after two weeks. You can apply the whitening solution either twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on your desired level of whitening. Consult with Dr. Schlotz for recommendations.
