If you’re not happy with the look of your smile, you’re hardly alone. According to one survey, 81% of people think their teeth look unattractive in photos – and 28% are so self-conscious about it, they don’t smile in social media pics!

Fortunately, you don’t just have to live with it. Let Dr. Bloss help you get the attractive, natural-looking smile you seek – one created with biocompatible materials and designed with your whole body health in mind.

Here’s just a sample of the smile makeover services we provide at our holistic dental office in Montrose:

Smile Whitening

We offer both take-home and in-office whitening services to remove stains and discoloration, leaving you with a brighter smile. It’s a result you simply cannot get with just any over-the-counter whitening kit. We take your whole appearance into account, helping you achieve a shade that looks bright but natural.

No chicklet teeth here!

Professional tooth whitening is safe, and your whiter, brighter teeth will boost your self-confidence and make your smile more attractive and inviting!

Bonding & Veneers

If you have chips, cracks, or gaps in your teeth, bonding offers a quick and easy fix. It can also be done to reinforce worn or chipped teeth and to lengthen or level teeth. We simply sculpt composite resin that’s bonded to your teeth, harden it with an intense LED curing light, then refine and polish the tooth.

If you’re looking for more of a total visual change, veneers – sometimes combined with crowns for select teeth – are the way to go. These thin, porcelain facings can change the color, shape, and length of your teeth. That’s why they’re the number one choice of Hollywood dentists to create brilliant smiles for their celebrity patients.

Placing veneers takes two to three visits to complete. First, we design the smile you want, then we prepare your teeth for them and place temporaries while impressions of your teeth go to the dental lab where your permanent veneers will be made. Once they arrive at our office, we bond the final veneers to your teeth.

All that’s left for you to do is smile.

Enamel Recontouring

Enamel recontouring is a quick and painless procedure that involves removing a bit of the hard outer layer of your tooth to change its length, shape, or surface. It can be used to fix small chips or adjust slightly irregular tooth shape, smooth out pits or bulges in the enamel, or remove overlaps between teeth.

Enamel recontouring usually requires just one or two visits, and is an effective way to correct minor cosmetic dental flaws.

Invisalign

Crooked, misaligned teeth aren’t just a cosmetic problem. They can make oral hygiene more challenging, raising the risk of decay and gum disease. Misalignment can also contribute to headaches and other upper body pain.

The solution, of course, is to straighten them into a balanced bite. That’s where Invisalign comes in.

This system gently moves your teeth using a series of clear, plastic, removable “braces.” Small changes over time add up to a big improvement in your smile!

Step one is to evaluate the current arrangement of your teeth. If Invisalign is the right treatment option for you, we’ll take impressions, photos, and a panoramic x-ray. Invisalign technicians will then work with Dr. Bloss to design our new smile and determine the tooth movements needed to achieve it. They’ll make the set of aligners you’ll need, then send them to us to pass along to you.

Depending on the amount of movement needed, most cases take between 6 to 18 months to complete. Yet week by week, you’ll be able to see your teeth move into their optimal position – all without the wires and metal brackets of a “brace face.”
