Whitening lightens the existing shade of your teeth by removing the stains caused by food, alcohol, coffee and other dietary habits. If the you have severe discoloration or stains (due for example to previous medication during tooth formation), veneers or bonding will be required to alter the shade of the teeth.
During your consultation, Dr. Germain will determine the ideal color of your teeth and recommend the most appropriate treatment course. Dr. Germain has extensive experience in this area and utilizes the latest tools and products to ensure you get the results you are looking for.
If you are concerned with the appearance of your teeth, or if your teeth are crowded or you can see space between them, Invisalign is a great treatment option for you.
Invisalign is a procedure that consists of straightening your teeth with clear trays. You will get a perfect, straight smile without anybody noticing it. A series of clear, personalised trays will move your teeth progressively without pain. Unlike braces, they are clear and you can remove them to eat, floss and brush.
Dr. Alexandra Germain is Invisalign certified in London, New York and Paris.
Bonding is one of the most simple cosmetic procedures. It is used to correct slight imperfection of the smile, repair chipped teeth, reshape teeth or close small gaps. It uses a material that’s plastic like, that we call composite. It is done in the chair, in one visit, and generally requires no numbing. Bonding is like a low cost alternative to veneers. Veneer – five star treatment, bonding – three star treatment.
Inlays and Onlays are an alternative to standard fillings. They are made of porcelain and are suggested when the size of the cavity is too large. In such cases, a standard filling would not guarantee a good seal in order to avoid recurrent cavities.
With large cavities, treating the tooth with an onlay avoids a crown which would be more aggressive to the tooth.
