  • Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.

  • The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Anuj Sharma expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.

  • You wear each set of aligners 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 Dr. Anuj Sharma has prescribed.

  • You’ll visit Dr. Anuj Sharma about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

  • Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Dental whitening can be used to correct tooth discoloration. Discolorations can be caused by staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Using the latest in whitening technology, we can offer a safe method for creating a beautiful “brilliant” smile. In cases of extreme tooth discoloration, crowns or veneers may be the only choice, but because of the low cost of whitening treatments, teeth whitening is nearly always worth a solid try.

How is teeth whitening done?

An impression is taken to make a specialized “mouthguard” or “stent” to hold the bleach against the teeth. The material is used each night for about 3-4 hours for a week or two, and at the end of this time, significant whitening will occur. In some cases, the change is nothing short of brilliant. For confidence in appearance, bleaching technology allows us to promise improvements in yellowing, aging or stained teeth. For very severely stained teeth, crowns or dental veneers may be more appropriate.

Key Benefits of Teeth Whitening

  • Corrects brown, yellow and spotted tooth staining

  • Is a near-permanent solution for a “dull” smile, restoring brightness and brings a smile alive

Considerations for Teeth Whitening

Over-the-counter bleaching agents are available for purchase at drug stores and pharmacies. However, since these products can cause harm to the gums and teeth, it’s better to use products that our practice recommends.
