When repairing your teeth, the last thing Dr. McCarthy wants is to require patients to sacrifice their beautifully natural smile for improved oral health. Thankfully, our metal-free restorations are the best of both worlds! We offer all-ceramic and composite resin materials that are semi-translucent (just like tooth enamel) and very durable for continued use. Patients won’t have to worry about dark metal lines forming over time like with metal-based crowns, and the biocompatible nature is also good news for those with sensitivities or outright allergies to traditional dental materials and want to avoid mercury exposure.
Are you in need of a new crown in record time? No problem – our state-of-the-art E4D system can design an impressively lifelike crown, inlay, or onlay in just one appointment.
In Office Whitening Services
Teeth can become stained and lackluster over time for a variety of reasons, including poor oral hygiene, certain medications, and even plain old age. If you’re unhappy with the way your smile is shining these days, talk to Dr. McCarthy about the possibility of undergoing teeth whitening to achieve dazzling, dramatic improvements. For patients who are seeking fast changes, our in-office whitening service is the best choice available, brightening enamel by several shades in just under an hour.
At-Home Whitening Kits
If in-office whitening isn’t right for you, a customized take-home kit can improve your smile and self-confidence at a more flexible pace. Dr. McCarthy will provide you with the high-grade whitening gel and oral trays you need, and all the patient needs to do is wear both together for a certain amount of time each day. This can take place when you’re watching TV late at night or doing chores early in the morning – the treatment adapts to your schedule. Within a few weeks, you should see noticeably beautiful results!
Direct bonding is a simple and effective cosmetic procedure that can be used to correct relatively minor flaws, such as gaps between teeth, discoloration, or chips and cracks. Dr. McCarthy will apply the lifelike composite resin material directly to the tooth and smooth it into the desired shape before hardening it in place. The whole process only takes thirty minutes to an hour, and the results can last for multiple years as long they’re cared for properly with regular oral hygiene and professional checkups here in East Amherst.
