Porcelain veneers are among the most comprehensive solutions for your smile. Porcelain veneers are the perfect way to remedy teeth that are chipped, stained, or even misaligned.
Veneers are thin shells of ceramic porcelain, bonded to the front of teeth. Treatment begins with a detailed consultation with Dr. Sammons, where you’ll discuss your desires for your smile. During your consultation, Dr. Sammons will listen to learn your goals. He’ll explain different smile characteristics you may not have thought of, including the curvature, shading, translucency, surface texture, length, and coloring of your teeth. We also urge you to bring in photos of the picture-perfect smile you’re after. Your opinion is of the utmost importance; it’s our job to show how you how your makeover with veneers can be accomplished!
Six-Month Smiles is a highly innovative orthodontic procedure that reduces treatment time dramatically and is intended to provide better comfort and a less noticeable effect on your smile compared to traditional braces.
The benefits of Six-Month Smiles are incredible:
- Average treatment time is about six months.
- Clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are very subtle.
- They offer more predictable results compared to other methods. - Appointments are quick and more comfortable.
The Six-Month Smiles treatment process is simple. First, Dr. Sammons will take photos and impressions of your teeth. This data is then used by the Six-Month Smiles lab to compose your treatment plan. Once at the lab, your Six-Month Smiles kit will be custom-designed. Once ready, Dr. Sammons will affix the wires and brackets to your teeth. You’ll return for routine adjustments until treatment is complete.
Lifestyle habits such as smoking, drinking coffee and tea, and taking certain medications can hurt the appearance of your smile. Dr. Sammons offers some of the most superior options in teeth whitening to patients wanting to renew the appearance of their smile.
For immediate results, we recommend Zoom II or the new Venus Whitening System, which can brighten teeth up to 10 shades in only a 90-minute visit. Your absolute comfort is our primary concern. Those who may experience any sensitivity can ask Dr. Sammons about our soothing topical gels to use as a follow-up to your treatment.
We also offer at-home whitening kits for those predisposed to tooth sensitivity or those who prefer to whiten at a more comfortable pace. One option involves the use of trays and professional grade whitening gel for thirty minutes, twice a day for two weeks. The other is a night-time version that gives you the convenience of lightening your teeth while you sleep.
Simpli5 is a comfortable, discreet way to create a straight and beautiful smile! Simpli5 uses a series of five clear, removable aligners to gently move teeth into alignment. You can have the smile you want in a fraction of the time of traditional braces.
Simpli5 is ideal for anyone with minor orthodontic problems who want a quick, invisible solution to a perfectly straight smile. Simpli5 aligners go virtually unnoticed by others. The aligners are convenient in that they are comfortable to wear and can be removed any time to eat, drink, brush, and floss teeth. The aligners also work very quickly, with an average treatment time of around one year.
People with “gummy” smiles are often self-conscious about the appearance of their smile. For these patients, Indianapolis cosmetic dentist Dr. Sammons can gently and effectively sculpt the gum line into perfect contours using cutting-edge laser gum contouring treatment.
In the past, the only way to reshape gums was through a surgical procedure using a scalpel. The results were quite good, but often left patients with a long, painful healing process. Modern dental lasers, such as the Biolase MD used by Dr. Sammons, can remove soft tissue in the mouth and begin repairing it at the same time. The laser also allows for greater control over the reshaping process. With the utmost accuracy, Dr. Sammons can create a gum line that frames the teeth beautifully. The result is a beautiful smile with little pain and quick recovery period.
If you desire to smooth facial wrinkles & fine lines, Botox® is your best friend. Botox® operates by temporarily immobilizing or relaxing the muscles near those nasty wrinkles. Also, dental Botox can be used to treat chronic migraines and some dental issues, such as teeth-clenching & grinding, abnormally large jaw muscles, & jaw muscle spasms. It can also be utilized to relax your jaw muscles so that dental implants can heal and set correctly.
Digital Impressions for fast, accurate and beautiful restorations.
CEREC AC is CAD/CAM technology that allows Dr. Sammons to digitally construct, produce and place ceramic restorations in a single visit.
A digital impression is made from a digital scan with an intraoral camera, the restoration is then designed digitally on a computer for exact fit and then the design is sent to a manufacturing/milling machine.
