How Zoom! Works
The Zoom! Whitening procedure is simple and painless. It begins with a short preparation to isolate your lips and gums. Then the proprietary Zoom! Whitening Gel is applied, which is activated by a specially designed light. Teeth typically become at least six to ten shades whiter, sometimes more. You will be amazed with the results
The Zoom! Light-activated gel was developed after years of research by Discus Dental, the leaders in professional take-home tooth whitening. The gel is a scientifically formulated, pH balanced hydrogen peroxide that, when activated by the Zoom! light, gently penetrates the teeth to remove deep stains and discoloration. With proper care and an occasional touch-up at home, your whiter smile will sparkle for years.
THE 'CAPTEK' CROWN
Hygienic Aesthetic Crowns(Caps)
When teeth are in need of cosmetic improvement or repair, CAPTEK Crowns are the material today of choice. They can actually help fight oral bacteria. In recent tests, dentists found that CAPTEK crowns reduce the formation of bacteria around the gums. The tests showed that CAPTEK crown surfaces have about 10% of the bacteria found on natural tooth surfaces.
No Unsightly "Black Lines"
CAPTEK'S patented material enables us to provide you with a crown that will look natural at the gum line, eliminating any unsightly gray or black lines commonly associated with traditional crowns. The light dispersion effects of CAPTEK crowns are perfect for achieving vital, attractive tooth color. These crowns mimic best natural tooth structure, better than any other crown or veneer material. CAPTEK is the ideal material for matching natural tooth color following ZOOM, for any tooth shape(cosmetic) changes which may be desired.
CAPTEK crowns are designed for the patient who demands the best appearance!!
Good oral hygiene may pay off in more ways than was previously understood. In a recent Univ.of Michigan Dental School study, researchers found that gum disease may be linked to a higher incidence of heart attacks. In Feb, 2005, leading researchers published in the cardiac journal Circulation clinical findings that provided evidence that there was a direct relationship between periodontal bacteria and atherosclerosis!
This is all the more reason take care of your teeth and choosing bacterial resistant CAPTEK crowns when needed for your heart as well as your mouth and your appearance. Remember, a beautiful smile can make you feel better about yourself and that alone can have overall positive health benefits.
Missing teeth can now be permanently replaced with teeth that look and feel like your own! Dental Implants are so natural looking and feeling you may forget you ever lost a tooth. Perhaps you hide your smile because of spaces from missing teeth. If you are missing even a single tooth, and would like to smile, speak, and eat again with comfort and confidence, dental implants are designed for you.
With today's modern technology, and ability to maintain implants long term, almost everyone is a candidate for Dental Implants. Implants allow you to once again speak and eat with peace of mind and confidence. It is one of the most predictable treatments available to patients today and are now considered by most experts to be the best option for tooth replacement.
While many surgical treatments can be traumatic, the modern technology protocols we use to place the implants can make this procedure painless and the recovery very comfortable. Most of our patients go to work the same day and feel almost as if nothing were done! We are very flattered to have been called the "Painless Dentist of Philadalphia."
You can now enjoy the benefits of Cosmetic Dentistry newest restorative filling materials that are natural looking and long lasting. These materials are compatible with all teeth and match the natural tooth color! Because these fillings bond to your natural teeth, there is less chance of the tooth fracturing with more of the tooth being saved when prepared to receive the filling. The filling becomes almost invisible!
PERIODONTAL (GUM) DISEASE
Gum Disease is a serious dental problem, affecting over 80% of the adult population. It is an invasive, infectious disease, responsible for tooth loss in adults and has been directly linked to serious medical problems. Recent studies have shown that periodontal infections(gum disease) can predispose a patient to heart disease, atherosclerosis, stroke, and adult onset diabetes.
Pictured above are examples of the healthy and diseased mouth. Warning signs of this serious disease are:
- Gums which bleed when brushing
- Red, swollen, or tender gums
- Bad breath and/or bad taste in the mouth
Treatment is required to control the problem and should be started as soon as the disease is detected. New forms of treatment can now be done without surgery and is PAINLESS! Along with a simple program of power brushing and flossing, scaling of the teeth to remove the harmful tartar deposits, use of safe, new prescription drugs, e.g. Periostat, and placement of site-only active antibiotic pastes, e.g. Arestin, the disease can be controlled successfully with expert care.
As a trained, board certified periodontist, from the Univ. of Pennsylvania , Dr. Gottehrer has now successfully treated over 1000 patients nonsurgically with this new treatment and controlled their disease. They have been eternally grateful, being able to avoid surgery. Dr. Gottehrer has published this successful treatment protocol in a leading dental publication, DENTISTRY TODAY, and has taught dentists nationwide how to use this treatment in managing their patient's disease.
