If you have something you want to fix about your smile, you’re not alone. In fact, 32% of Americans have something they’d like to improve about the look of their smile.
But even beyond appearance, improving your teeth can provide a boost of confidence and improve the functionality of your smile. For example, strengthening a tooth with a crown may significantly enhance your chewing and speaking function in addition to improving your smile. Discover three treatments provided by Dr. Li and Dr. Kim that can significantly improve your teeth in time for the new year.
Add Protection Against Tooth Decay with Dental Sealants
Along with excellent home care, dental sealants are a highly effective preventative measure for keeping your teeth strong and clean. Our enamel is the natural shield for the teeth, but bacteria, plaque, and acids can cause it to deteriorate, leaving them vulnerable to cavities. This is where dental sealants come in. By coating your teeth with a protective dental sealant, we provide extra protection, ensuring that decay can’t breach the surface and cause cavities.
Benefits of a Dental Sealant
- Peace of mind from knowing your teeth are protected
- Save money on correctional costs in the long run
- Quick and painless procedure
Reap the Benefits of a Whiter Smile with Dr. Li
One way to maximize your potential is to start the new year off with a whiter smile. While it may seem like a minor detail, a significantly whiter smile can boost your confidence and yield benefits that you might not expect. The take-home whitening kits provided at both our Millville and Voorhees locations are capable of whitening your teeth by about ten shades within just a few weeks.
How Do the Take-Home Whitening Kits Work?
The take-home whitening kits provided by Millville and South Jersey dental teams use a mild concentration of hydrogen peroxide. Upon arriving for your appointment, Dr. Li will customize a tray for you to fill with the whitening gel and use at home. Since the concentration in the gel is effective but not excessively high, our take-home trays are optimal for patients with sensitive teeth. Plus, you have the advantage of using them at your own convenience.
Straighten Your Teeth Discreetly with Invisalign
A crooked tooth or two may look endearing, but misalignments in your bite can cause serious dental problems down the line. Whether it’s to improve your appearance or to realign your smile for comfort and health reasons, Invisalign may be the perfect solution for you.
Invisible and Comfortable: The Advantages of Invisalign
Traditionally, metal braces have been the prevailing way to straighten your teeth. Invisalign corrects many of the flaws inherent in metal braces by fitting you with strong, comfortable plastic aligners that perfectly fit the contours of your smile. These aligners are designed to be gradually tighter than the last, and they work to shift your teeth into the correct alignment over time.
