Invisalign and Clear Braces

Invisalign and
Clear Braces

Want a confident smile without the “hardware” associated with traditional braces? Clear aligners are a significantly less noticeable option and can be a great alternative for most people. Made from transparent materials, clear aligners are custom-made for each patient using state-of-the-art scanning technology which creates a 3D model of your teeth. This scan is used to create the transparent aligner which gradually adjusts the alignment of your teeth. Teens, adults, and parents also love that the clear aligners can be removed. This makes eating your favorite foods more enjoyable and cleaning your teeth much easier. The dental professionals at Sunshine Smile Designs are experts at creating healthier and happier smiles by using clear aligners to straighten teeth and correct alignment. Call us today to find out more.

Clear Braces

Clear or Ceramic Braces are similar to traditional braces but are made of tooth-colored or clear materials to make them less noticeable. They are the same size and provide the same corrective benefits offered by metal braces. Clear or Ceramic Braces are made of porcelain, ceramic, or other transparent materials and blend in with the natural color of your teeth. At Sunshine Smile Designs, we’re ready to answer your questions about clear or ceramic braces and how they compare with traditional metal braces. Our knowledgeable and professional dental staff are fully equipped and ready to help you walk through this journey towards a healthier and happier smile.

Scaling and Root Planing

Scaling is a [non-surgical] deep cleaning measure that includes removing plaque from above and below the gumline. The root is also smoothened through planing to allow the tissue to heal and reattach itself to the tooth. Local anesthesia is applied to numb the targeted area and make the procedure much more comfortable. Antibiotics may be recommended as a means of controlling the toxic bacteria from spreading further that cause periodontitis.

TMJ Treatment

The terms TMJ and TMD are often used interchangeably, but they aren’t the same thing. The TMJ is the jaw joint, and a TMD is a problem with the joint.

Invisalign and Clear Braces

Clear aligners are made from transparent materials that adjust your teeth without the “hardware” traditionally associated with braces.

Dental Bridges

A safe, low-risk way to replace one or more missing teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as anchors to support the suspended replacement teeth.

Dental Crowns

Decay or trauma can cause loss of tooth structure and can compromise function as well as aesthetics. Extensive loss of tooth structure can best be replaced with a restoration that covers your entire tooth as in a crown. This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long lasting esthetic and functional result.

Routine and Deep Cleaning

There are two parts to your Sunshine Smile Designs visit – examination and cleaning. Your exam will check for cavities, plaque, and tartar on your teeth.

Dental Implants

Do you have a missing tooth? We understand how this can make your feel. We believe that everyone should be able to achieve their best smile.

Dentures and Partials

We know that life with dentures and partials can be both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it's important to remove teeth that are painful, broken, and infected.

Emergency Services

Extractions

While many of us do our best to keep our teeth healthy, sometimes a tooth needs to be taken out to keep you healthy. In these cases, an extraction is necessary.

Tooth Colored Fillings

A toothache can disrupt your life. Tooth decay, cracked teeth, and cavities will provide a constant and painful reminder. At Sunshine Smile Designs we have completed thousands of fillings.

Root Canal

A root canal is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical endodontic treatment. The procedure is preformed under local anesthesia and involves opening the crown of the tooth, exposing the roots and pulp of the tooth. When the pulp and root is exposed the infected areas of the tooth are removed.

A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed, well over 14 million every year. This simple treatment can save your natural teeth and prevent the need of dental implants or bridges.

Teeth Cleaning

At Sunshine Smile Designs, we believe that getting your teeth cleaned every 6 months keep your teeth and gums as healthy as possible.

Teeth Whitening

Let our team help you determine what whitening process is right for you, based on the current color and condition of your teeth.

Veneers

A wafer-thin glass shells that can be bonded to the front of your teeth to mask their shape, color, or size. The highest quality veneers are made individually by hand and are hard to distinguish from natural teeth. veneers can be used to remarkably transform the smile of patients who have worn, chipped, or discolored teeth. Slightly crooked teeth can be straightened as well. Hand-made porcelain veneers are typically very translucent and when bonded to your teeth they are very lifelike.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can repair implant sites with inadequate bone structure due to previous extractions, gum disease or injuries. The bone is either obtained from a tissue bank or your own bone is taken from the jaw, hip or tibia (below the knee). Sinus bone grafts are also performed to replace bone in the posterior upper jaw.

Periodontal Therapy

We specialize in a wide variety of procedures designed to maintain or improve your periodontal tissues. The periodontal (gum) tissues are an important part of your oral health. Our experience and expertise in periodontics allows us to provide high-quality treatments you cannot find anywhere else!

Laser Dental Surgery

info coming soon!

Laser Assisted Periodontal Disease Treatment

LANAP™ is a gentle, conservative, non-invasive method of treating gum disease without cutting, suturing or removing tissue. Using a precision laser, the Doctor is able to kill up to 99% of the disease-causing bacteria in the periodontal pockets. Because there is no defense against the laser, the bacteria can not adapt and avoid elimination as with antibiotic treatment.

Oral Cancer Screening

The inside of the mouth is normally lined with a special type of skin (mucosa) that is smooth and coral pink in color. Any alteration in this appearance could be a warning sign for a pathological process. The most serious of these is oral cancer.

We recommend performing an oral cancer self-examination monthly and remember that your mouth is one of your body’s most important warning systems. Do not ignore suspicious lumps or sores.

Sedation Dentistry

A drug-induced depression of consciousness during which patients respond purposefully to verbal commands, either alone or accompanied by light tactile stimulation. No interventions are required to maintain a patent airway, and spontaneous ventilation is adequate. Cardiovascular function is usually maintained.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is an infection caused by the bacteria found in plaque, the thin biofilm that constantly forms around our teeth. In response to these bacteria, our immune system produces toxins. Unfortunately, these toxins also target our gums and other supportive tissues, resulting in the infection known as periodontal disease. Without treatment, periodontal disease can have serious consequences for your oral health.
