If your smile just needs a boost, the quickest way to make a huge impact is to whiten your teeth. At Fairfax and Associates, we offer multiple options for teeth whitening, designed to meet our patients' needs. The ZOOM! whitening system can lighten your teeth 6-8 shades with one short in-office appointment. We also offer Quick ZOOM! which achieves around four shades of difference in a short appointment. These options work well for busy patients who want to have immediate results.
We also offer take-home whitening trays that we create by taking impressions of your teeth. We'll send you home with high strength whitening gel and you can whiten at your leisure, based on your own schedule. Another benefit of take-home trays is that you can update your smile before the next big event, or whenever you like.
If your smile has larger repairs such as fractures, discoloration, wear, spacing, misalignment, or chipping, dental veneers may be the right option for you. Made from thin layers of porcelain, veneers are custom designed to fit over you natural tooth structure, cover or repair your issues, and enhance your smile. They can be custom blended to match your existing teeth, and they're stain resistant, so you won't have be concerned with whitening your veneers. Dr. Fairfax can determine if porcelain veneers are right for your needs with a thorough examination.
For adults who want to straighten their teeth discreetly, Invisalign offers clear plastic aligners that fit snugly, apply gentle pressure, and gradually straighten your teeth without the use of traditional braces. Aligners should be worn at least 22 hours per day, but can easily be removed for brushing, flossing, eating, and the occasional big event. Most cases of Invisalign can be completed in 12-18 months, making it the perfect option for busy adults to achieve the healthy, straight smile of their dreams.
