What Treatments are Available for Me?

Your treatment plan depends on several factors, including your age, oral health status, and budget. Each aesthetic service that we offer addresses a particular issue, and different services can be combined to provide comprehensive care. Some of the cosmetic procedures we offer include:

  • Composite Fillings, Inlays, & Onlays
  • ClearCorrect® Aligners

Before recommending treatment for you, we will discuss the goals that you have for your smile. Maybe you want to straighten your teeth or make them a few shades lighter. Maybe you want to correct the appearance of a stained or broken tooth. Whatever expectations you have, we will work to match our treatment options to your goals for long-lasting results that you can feel good about.

When determining the procedure that is right for you, we will also examine the condition of your teeth. Depending on the condition of your teeth, you might be a better candidate for certain treatments than for others.

What Services Do You Offer?

Our wide selection of cosmetic offerings makes it easy to pick a treatment that is just right for you. We’ve included some of our most popular services below, along with information on what kinds of people are good candidates for each service.

Composite Fillings, Inlays, and Onlays

FIllings, inlays, and onlays help repair tooth decay and injury. Composite material mimics the natural appearance of teeth and creates a subtle look that blends in with your natural smile.

To repair decay or injury, we will remove the damage and prepare the tooth for a composite filling. If the damaged area is large or on the cusp of the tooth, an inlay or onlay will be prepared first, then put into place at a second appointment.

Cosmetic restorations like fillings, inlays, and onlays have many benefits. Some of these benefits are listed below.

  • Composite bonds to your enamel to provide more support.
  • Composite fillings require less removal of your tooth when compared to amalgam fillings. This preserves more of your healthy tooth.
  • Composite forms a tight seal to prevent new decay.
  • The color of composite closely matches the natural color of your teeth.

Like many cosmetic dental procedures, a composite filling does not just create an attractive appearance. It also helps to support your oral health by protecting your tooth from further decay and damage.

Porcelain Veneers

A veneer is a small piece of porcelain that is tailored to match the appearance of your natural teeth. Veneers are custom-made for every patient and can correct chips, cracks, minor misalignment, and unwanted gaps. They help to improve the aesthetics of your smile and the function of your teeth.

Veneers are durable and can last many years. Depending on the damage they incur, your veneers may require repairs or full replacements. Just like your natural teeth, the lifespan of your veneers will depend on the effort you put into maintaining them.

You might be a good candidate for veneers if:

  • Your teeth are severely stained. For dark stains that can’t be corrected by whitening treatments, we recommend porcelain veneers to conceal discoloration.
  • You have cosmetic imperfections. We use veneers to conceal cracks, misshapen teeth, and chips.
  • You have good oral health. Patients with healthy teeth and gums are the best candidates for veneers. If you have widespread decay or damaged teeth, we might also be able to offer veneers after performing a restorative treatment.
  • You have sufficient enamel on your teeth. Applying veneers requires the removal of some of the enamel on your teeth. The enamel is filed down a very small amount to create room in your mouth for the veneers. This results in a seamless smile once the veneers are set in place.
  • You have moderately straight teeth. While veneers can correct mild to moderate misalignment, they are not appropriate for severely crooked teeth.

If you are interested in dental veneers, we are happy to discuss your treatment options. Reach out to our office via email or by phone to find out if you are a good candidate!

Porcelain Crowns

A porcelain crown is a cap that we place over your tooth to restore its size, shape, and strength. A crown can also improve the overall appearance of the tooth. Dental crowns generally have a very long lifespan. However, the lifespan of a porcelain crown depends on the level of wear and tear, how well you observe proper oral hygiene, and your mouth-related habits. Some habits can be dangerous for your teeth and put your crowns at risk. These include habits like clenching or grinding teeth, biting fingernails, using teeth to open packages, and chewing ice or hard foods.

We recommend dental crowns for the following situations:

  • To restore a worn out or broken tooth.
  • To complete an implant.
  • To secure a dental bridge.
  • To protect a weak tooth.
  • To correct a large filling.
  • To enhance a tooth’s appearance.

At Callahan & Klein, we offer porcelain crowns as well as metal core crowns. To find out what kind of crown is best for you, reach out to us via email or by phone. We will review your smile and help you choose the option that best fits your needs.

ClearCorrect® For Smile Rejuvenation

ClearCorrect is a treatment that modifies alignment using clear aligners that gradually shift your teeth into the appropriate position. You wear the aligners for a fixed number of hours a day for a specific period. The duration of your aligner use will depend on your specific condition and the original position of your teeth.

This treatment requires commitment. Patients need to be diligent about wearing and cleaning the aligners or they will not achieve the desired result. For this reason, we recommend ClearCorrect for adults and responsible teens.

We recommend clear aligners for adults and teens suffering from mild to moderate cases of misalignment. This can include conditions like crooked teeth, overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, and crowded teeth. The benefits of our clear aligners include:

  • Discretion. These aligners are virtually invisible. Unlike conventional braces or metal retainers, ClearCorrect aligners are not immediately noticeable. Someone would need to be very close to you to spot them!
  • Ease of use. You can remove aligners when eating meals and when brushing and flossing. This makes it easier to maintain a complete oral hygiene routine and means that you don’t have to avoid foods like popcorn or crunchy snacks.
  • Cleanliness and oral hygiene. With fixed braces, it is hard to reach all the surfaces of teeth when brushing, which increases the likelihood of decay. Clear aligners are removable and enable you to maintain oral hygiene with ease.
  • Comfort. Clear aligners are smooth and comfortable. Conventional braces have wires that can rub the insides of your cheeks and lips. While wearing an aligner may feel uncomfortable at first, you will quickly get used to the gentle pressure.

When you come in for your first ClearCorrect appointment, we will take a digital scan of your mouth. This allows us to see the exact shape, size, and position of all of your teeth, and we’ll use the scan to create aligners that perfectly fit your smile. Since we use 3D digital imaging for our scans, you’ll never have to deal with the uncomfortable putty of traditional dental molds!

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is a very popular and simple treatment. It involves lightening the color of your teeth by removing stains. Some of the things that stain your teeth over time include:

  • Smoking or chewing tobacco
  • Eating dark colored foods
  • Drinking dark colored beverages

To find out if these restorative treatments are right for you, reach out to us for a consultation. We will help you make a plan that considers both your oral health and the appearance of your smile.

Restoring A Healthy and Natural Smile

While many of our patients are bothered by the appearance of damaged or missing teeth, few fully understand the long term problems that these kinds of dental issues can lead to. Missing teeth leave behind gaps that can shift your remaining teeth and cause alignment problems. Prolonged tooth loss can also affect the strength of your jawbone and facial structure. When left untreated, a weakened jawbone often leads to a shrunken appearance around the mouth.

If you are missing teeth or have fractured or broken teeth, our Lakewood team can supplement your cosmetic treatments with important restorative services. Each restoration uses beautiful, high-quality materials that are free of amalgam. Our available options for replacing and restoring teeth include:

  • Implant-supported restorations
  • Porcelain crowns and bridges
  • Complete & partial dentures
  • Inlays & onlays

To find out if these restorative treatments are right for you, reach out to us for a consultation. We will help you make a plan that considers both your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
