Common Smile Makeover Treatments at River’s Bend Family Dental, MN

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the simplest way to improve the brightness of your smile. It is usually recommended to deal with cases of tooth staining or discoloration.
The most common cause of discoloration is the colored foods and drinks we consume – tea, coffee, red wine, berries, sugary candies, etc. The second cause is smoking – the yellow, gummy nicotine cakes onto teeth and builds up, giving them a deep yellow hue.
At River’s Bend, we offer Zoom Whitening. Zoom is a bleaching method widely used to lighten the discoloration of dentin and enamel.

The Zoom in-office tooth whitening procedure uses a whitening substance containing hydrogen peroxide. The treatment also includes whitening gel and LED light during the course to brighten your teeth.
The process allows oxygen to penetrate the enamel and dentin by breaking down the hydrogen peroxide. This further bleaches the staining substances and quickly changes tooth color.
People seem to like the Zoom treatment, especially before events like weddings or special occasions, as this can make your teeth noticeably brighter just after the 45-minute procedure.
We also offer take-home bleaching kits comprising custom-made trays or pre-cut strips. The custom trays are made in a dental laboratory, and our dentist or staff explains the directions of use.
Along with regular cleaning appointments, you can maintain your whitened teeth for a longer period.

Dental Bonding

In the dental bonding procedure, tooth-colored material is applied to teeth to fix issues such as –

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Severe discoloration
  • Decay
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Exposed roots
Cosmetic Dental Bonding
The procedure is quick and painless. And the star of the show is the teeth-bonding resin material.
The chameleon-like properties with the right color can match your exact natural teeth. After our dentist has done their magic, none of your closest friends and family can tell the difference between the bonding material and natural tooth.
At Rivers Bend Family Dental, we create a comfortable environment to address the unique dental needs of your family.

Porcelain Veneers

Popularly known as Hollywood teeth, porcelain veneers are wafer-thin tooth-colored shells covering the teeth’ front surfaces. They resolve the size, shape, and color discrepancies with teeth.

During your consultation, you can discuss with our dentist any special requests you might have. Digital X-rays, photographs, and 3D scans of your teeth are taken to create a custom treatment plan.
To prepare the teeth for the veneers, our dentist will shave down your natural teeth to create space. The veneers are made in a lab and sent back to the dentist. With your approval of the veneer’s color, shape, and seating, the dentist will cement them in place.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped cap that covers the tooth in the mouth. It is a cosmetic treatment because the crown is made of porcelain and shade-matched to your natural teeth.

For the following dental problems, our dentist might recommend a dental crown –
  • Large filling or cavity in the tooth
  • Cracks on the tooth surface
  • Pieces of the tooth fractured and broken off
  • Your tooth has a root canal
Before beginning the dental crown process, our dentist will examine your mouth and take x-rays to assess the extent of damage or infection. Once they give the green light, they will reshape the tooth in question to create space for the porcelain crown.
Impressions are taken and sent to the dental lab that manufactures the dental crown. At your next appointment, your dentist will show you the crown and get your approval on the color, shape, and fit. If everything looks good, they will cement the crown into place.

Dental Implants

The best replacement option is a dental implant if you have a missing tooth. They are designed to regain your ability to chew and bite normally. Dental implants also help maintain the integrity of the jawbone by preventing bone loss.

While the process of getting a dental implant is lengthy, it has numerous advantages – the biggest one being that they can last you all your life. With proper care and maintenance, implants brag a 98% success rate.
Our dentist will perform a comprehensive physical and digital examination of your mouth. They will also take detailed dental and medical histories to ensure you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
Dental Implants - Smile Makeover in Ramsey, MN
People with chronic medical conditions and smokers are not advised of dental implants since there is a higher chance of the unit failing.
The first step in the implant process is a surgical one – where the titanium base is placed in the jaw bone. Once it heals and fuses with the jaw bone, the connector and the false tooth are placed, filling the missing space in the mouth.
Our dentist will discuss the entire procedure before you decide if an implant is a good option for you.
