Imagine a whiter, more brilliant smile! Porcelain veneers are conservative, cosmetic dentistry that makes a dramatic difference in the appearance of your teeth. If you have chipped teeth, crooked teeth, gaps in teeth or dull or stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution for you. Dr. Herbeck will skillfully shape and bond thin forms of porcelain to your teeth, creating a straight, brilliant smile that enhances your appearance and your self esteem.
Patients rave about our tooth-whitening program. Imagine removing surface stains and having the white smile you had when you were a teenager. Dr. Herbeck offers a take-home whitening program using OpalescenceÂ® Take Home Whitening Gels that allow you to whiten your teeth at your convenience - in a safe, effective, and customized way that helps patients uncover a clean, renewed smile!
Safe Opalescence® Take Home Whitening Gels are available with Dr. Herbeck and we will supervise your treatment from initial consultation through completion. Because well-fitting custom gel trays are made for each patient, the gel won't migrate to gums. Dr. Herbeck only uses formulations that include Potassium Fluoride (PF), which helps to improve oral health by strengthening enamel, decreasing sensitivity, and offering increased cavity prevention to his patients.
Effective Powerful, prescription-strength Opalescence® Take Home Whitening Gels are available with 10%, 10%PF, 15%PF, 20%PF, and 35%PF carbamide peroxide. Opalescence® Take Home Whitening Gels can provide noticeable results after just one night, but expect to see complete results in about 4 weeks.
Customized Opalescence® Take Home Whitening Gels are delivered via customized bleaching trays. Dr. Herbeck will create this tray from an alginate impression of your mouth; this customization is part of why OpalescenceÂ® Take Home Whitening Gels are so effective. You can further customize your experience by choosing from the five formulations and three flavors (mint, melon and regular).
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Dr. Herbeck uses a tooth-like crown made of porcelain or other ceramic materials to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth and other damage. Also called "caps," porcelain crowns mimic natural looking teeth in shape and color. Patients who are interested in eliminating metal from their mouths have the choice of today's most popular ceramic crowns, eMax and Bruxzir.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured or discolored teeth? You may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with "filling" material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. With new advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings resulting in a longer lasting, brighter, whiter smile. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth for a stronger and more esthetic restoration.
Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth, often without reducing the structure of the tooth. The bonding material is sculpted by your dentist so that it resembles a natural tooth, correcting chips, and broken, stained or discolored teeth and in some cases correcting gaps. It is less of an investment than veneers (and less long-lasting) but like a natural tooth, the resin may stain with the use of coffee, wine or other staining foods.
