The in-office procedure takes about an hour, so you can visit our office on your lunch break and resume your normal activities immediately after. Just be prepared to answer questions about why your smile looks so great!
Alternatives to Traditional Orthodontia
Have you long desired straighter, more evenly aligned teeth, but are hesitant to straighten your teeth with traditional orthodontic methods, such as unsightly metal braces? If so, consider taking one of the modern approaches to straightening the teeth that Dr. Darian Hampton offers. With Six Month Smiles clear braces or ClearCorrect, a nearly transparent teeth-straightening system, you can achieve straighter teeth almost imperceptibly. Not to mention, these treatment options generally yield straighter teeth in less time than it takes to straighten the teeth with conventional metal braces.
The New Year is the perfect time to get rid of outdated appliances — including old metal amalgam fillings. Amalgam fillings are an effective way to protect the teeth from further decay, but they often contain potentially harmful mercury. In addition, they are not the most attractive method used to treat cavities. Dr. Hampton offers a better way to treat cavities and protect the teeth from decay: white fillings. White fillings closely match the color of the surrounding teeth, for a healthy, attractive smile.
Veneers and Ceramic Crowns
Dental veneers and ceramic crowns are designed to conceal minor dental imperfections, including cracked, chipped or severely discolored teeth. Veneers are affixed to the front surface of the teeth, and crowns are placed over the entire tooth. If you are concerned with small dental flaws, visit Dr. Hampton for a dental exam. He will assess your oral health, listen to your dental concerns and recommend a cosmetic treatment option that is most appropriate for your unique needs.
For individuals who are missing one or several teeth, dental implants can help. A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root that is implanted into the jaw bone. Once the treatment area heals, a prosthetic tooth (or teeth) is attached to the top of the implant to restore oral function and a beautiful smile, with long-lasting results.
