Our approach to creating your beautiful new smile

Photos are taken for use in planning your new smile.

Photos are taken for use in planning your new smile.

After you have established your goals for your new smile, Dr. Padolsky will take any needed low-dose digital X-rays and will take photos of your smile. You will be able to compare your smile with smiles of celebrities discuss your treatment options. Dr. Padolsky can even digitally manipulate your photos to show you how your new smile could look.

Next, Dr. Padolsky takes impressions of your teeth so that a wax model of your smile can be created. This “wax-up” is used to design your new smile. Dr. Padolsky can make adjustments to the model until it is exactly what you want. Once you approve the design of your new smile, Dr. Padolsky will begin preparing your temporary teeth.

A wax model allows Dr. Padolskt to make adjustments until you are happy with how everything looks.

Temporaries are tried out first so you can really be sure you are happy with how your new smile looks and also make sure it is comfortable and properly aligned. If anything needs adjusting, Dr. Padolsky handles that until you are 100% pleased with your smile.

After you approve the temporaries, Dr. Padolsky gets the finals made (veneers or crowns) and you try those on. Any needed adjustments are made before final cementing is done.

This method of trying out temporaries, and even the finals before permanently placing them, has resulted in very satisfied patients for Dr. Padolsky.

Conditions we can fix with Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry - Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening can quickly add beauty to your smile.

Stained, discolored or yellow teeth

We use professional whitening that will whiten your teeth by several shades. For a more longer-lasting result, we suggest porcelain veneers or dental bonding.

Gaps between teeth

We offer Invisalign® aligners that are comfortable, removable and virtually invisible. Porcelain veneers are a quicker alternative that can also close the gap between your teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry - Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is used to repair minor imperfections.

Chipped teeth or rough spots

Dr. Padolsky can smooth these over with dental bonding. However, for a better, more natural-looking, longer-lasting result he can use porcelain veneers.

Old silver fillings

We use tooth-colored composite resin fillings or onlays or inlays to safely replace your old silver fillings.

Missing teeth

For missing or extracted teeth, dental implants are the best option for permanent, long-lasting, natural looking teeth replacement.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Invisalign aligners are the “invisible” way to straighten your teeth.

Crooked teeth

Porcelain veneers may be used to fix mildly crooked teeth but if necessary, Dr. Padolsky may use orthodontic aligners to straighten your teeth and correct your bite alignment. The aligners he uses are comfortable, removable and virtually invisible!

Gummy smiles or uneven gum line

Our soft-tissue lasers can gently remove excess gum tissue and straighten out a gum line.

Our Cosmetic Procedures for your beautiful smile

The procedures we use to help you achieve your smile goals are:

Teeth Whitening – We offer in-office and take-home professional teeth whitening options to give you a brighter smile.

Dental Bonding – Dental bonding is a tooth-colored composite resin that is applied to your teeth to fix cracks, chips, gaps and discoloration.

Porcelain Veneers – Veneers are high-quality, durable, thin porcelain facings that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They correct stained or yellowed teeth, gaps, cracks, chips, misshapen teeth and mildly crooked teeth.

Tooth-Colored Fillings – Dr. Padolsky fills cavities with tooth-colored, durable composite resin fillings. These fillings can also replace your old silver amalgam fillings.

Onlays and Inlays – An onlay is a porcelain restoration that is applied over the cusps of a tooth. An inlay fits between the cusps or fissures in a tooth. Both are more durable than a filling for large cavities and are a more conservative option than a crown when a full crown isn’t necessary.

One-Visit Porcelain Crowns – A porcelain crown is a restorative, natural-looking porcelain cap that covers a tooth.

Dental Implants for missing teeth – Dr. Padolsky recommends dental implants for a natural-looking, long-lasting solution for missing teeth. His procedure for placing dental implants is minimally invasive and quick.

Invisalign® Clear Braces – Dr. Padolsky uses Invisalign aligners to straighten teeth with a series of comfortable, high-quality, clear plastic aligners that are removable and virtually invisible.

Gum Recontouring – Dr. Padolsky uses high-tech Electrosurgery to quickly and precisely reshape and sculpture your gums if your smile is too gummy-looking.
