Many people are skeptical about the results from professional teeth whitening because they haven’t had success with over-the-counter bleaching products. The main difference between these two methods is the length of time that the bleaching agent remains on the teeth. With dentist supervised whitening, the peroxide bleaching agent has ample time to penetrate deeply into the teeth to give long-lasting results. Read More About Teeth Whitening
One of the most common restorative treatments is tooth fillings. Fillings are used to repair cavities and minor instances of structural damage. At Winning Smile Dental Group, we specialize in white fillings, because of their superior aesthetics. White fillings are made with composite resin, a putty-like material that mimics the texture and color of natural tooth enamel. During the procedure for a white filling, Dr. Polly Reese will prepare the tooth by removing the decayed material and rinsing out the cavity. We then apply the composite resin in layers, while intermittently hardening the material with a curing light. Once the cavity is filled, we trim the excess and polish the composite.

One of the most common inquiries we receive at Winning Smile Dental Group involves teeth whitening. Professional whitening can brighten your smile by up to 8 shades! We use Zoom! whitening because it is one of the quickest and most effective bleaching methods available today. During your appointment, Dr. Polly Reese will paint the Zoom! whitening solution directly onto your teeth. Next, we will use a special chairside lamp, which allows the solution to penetrate the teeth, to accelerate the bleaching process. The gel and light are left in place for 15 minutes, and the process is repeated up to four times. After the procedure is complete, you will notice a significant change in the brightness of your smile. At-home whitening systems are not as effective as professional ones like Zoom!. To receive the results you desire, choose Zoom! Read More About Zoom! Whitening
Porcelain veneers are used to cover teeth that are aesthetically-displeasing or significantly damaged. Veneers are thin shells that cover the front surface of your teeth. Venners not only improve the cosmetics of your teeth, but also the structural integrity. For patients looking for a more conservative approach, porcelain veneers may be the ideal solution!

Invisalign is an orthodontic method and appliance that can straighten your teeth and improve the cosmetics of your smile. Instead of wires and brackets, Invisalign relies on aligner trays to slowly move your teeth into the desired position. During a consultation appointment, Dr. Polly Reese will determine if Invisalign is right for you. Next, records of your teeth will be used to create a series of aligner trays. For the next six to 18 months, you will wear the trays, changing them at two-week intervals. Each tray is designed to move your teeth into a slightly straighter position. By the end of treatment, you should have a straighter smile and a proper bite! Read More About Invisalign
