Invisalign has become an extremely popular cosmetic dental procedure over the last decade. It has been promoted as "invisible braces". It uses a a series of clear trays made specifically for each patient and is able to move teeth by changing the tray every two weeks. It can be removed during eating and does not affect your speaking ability at all. There are some drawbacks that Invisalign cannot fix, but is a perfectly reasonable option for a majority of patients. If you are considering getting the Invisalign system, come in for an evaluation to see if it's right for you.

Silver fillings have been around for about 150 years. The material must be a minimum thickness and they don't look very modern. Current technology advances allow us to place resin fillings with minimal tooth structure removal as well as using a chemical bond to adhere the filling to the tooth. This restoration can be more conservative while also not looking as ugly as silver fillings. Schedule an appointment to see if resin fillings would work for you.

An excellent way to transform your smile into the showcase of your appearance is to place porcelain veneers. Veneers are extremely thin (0.5 - 1.00 millimeter thickness) porcelain coverings that are cemented to the front of your teeth. They can change the color and shape of your teeth instantly! In most cases, they don' require anesthesia since the amount of tooth structure removed is minimal making it an extremely comfortable experience. They only take two appointments and can enhance your smile immediately!

The premier organization for cosmetic dentists is the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry(AACD). The annual conference is a great stepping stone for dentists to dip their toes into what cosmetic dentistry is about, or to update their technique. However, the truly elite cosmetic dentists subject themselves to a detailed written test and rigorous standards for presenting clinical cases among their peers. Dr. Keri Do is one of these highly trained and skilled dentists. Since cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized specialty as this time, any dentist can claim that they are a cosmetic dentist. However, accreditation status is the closest anyone can achieve to become a specialist, as evident by their work and their continuous training to stay current. Don't be fooled by the title of cosmetic dentist, the best way to find an exemplary cosmetic dentist is to look for AACD accreditation, and judge their work for yourself.
