Danny Nakhla, Independence dentist, combines artistry and best materials to change smiles with cosmetic dentistry. Read about whitening, veneers and more.
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry maintains that a smile says a lot of about a person. Dr. Danny Nakhla, Independence cosmetic dentist, agrees and desires to help people express their true selves through their smiles.
Change your smile for the better
Even when teeth and gums are healthy, someone can still be dissatisfied with how his or her smile looks. Uneven wearing, yellowed enamel, obvious metal fillings–they detract from personal appearance and self-image as well.
Dr. Nakhla and his team work to keep abreast of the latest cosmetic dental services, offering patients just what they need and want to create a beautiful, but natural looking, smile. Even small cosmetic changes make a big difference.
A smile assessment
The first step toward a new smile is a comprehensive smile assessment. Dr. Nakhla examines his patient’s teeth and gums, taking x-rays and other imaging to assess oral health. He discusses aesthetic goals with the patient, showing him or her options appropriate for facial appearance, personal preference and budget.
Amazing cosmetic services
A quick, budget-friendly aesthetic improvement is professional teeth whitening. For patients with limited restorations, healthy gums and no decay, Dr. Nakhla recommends Kor teeth whitening to brighten stained, yellow tooth enamel by as much as 8 shades in 1 to 2 weeks.
The staff at Independence Family Dentistry provides custom-fitted, plastic whitening trays which the patient then fills with a proprietary bleaching gel at home. The excellent fit allows the gel to do its work without causing undue sensitivity to gums and other soft oral tissues. The individual wears the trays for a specified amount of time each day. He or she then returns to the Independence Family Dentistry for one in-office treatment, resulting in a bright, new smile.
Another cosmetic dental service is composite resin bonding. Using a unique combination of acrylic and glass, your Independence dentist reshapes teeth that are:
This solution is budget-friendly, quick, painless and very effective. Dr. Nakhla may combine bonding with whitening and other aesthetic treatments.
Porcelain veneers, made of a high-grade ceramic, cover heavy stains, chips, cracks and spacing problems. Placed on the front side of one or more teeth, veneers are specially made by a skilled ceramist to match tooth color, shape, bite and overall facial appearance for a natural, but better, look.
Teeth extensively marred by multiple fillings, decay, injury or root canal therapy may need refinishing with porcelain crowns. Combining the best in restorative and cosmetic technology, Dr. Nakhla delivers CEREC same-day crowns. Imaged, designed and manufactured chairside using advanced computer software and milling processes, these solid porcelain restorations are lifelike, lasting and are placed in just about one hour.
Finally, older teens and adults may pursue their best smiles through Invisalign clear aligners. These innovative orthodontic appliances move teeth into healthier and better-looking positions in an average treatment time of 12 months. Removable and practically invisible, the aligners work well for patients with mild to moderate alignment issues. Plus, they are comfortable and require no dietary limitations or special hygiene.
