Veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. Transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth! In the hands of a highly skilled dentist, porcelain laminates can provide you with an incredibly natural, beautiful smile. They are virtually undetectable and can dramatically improve your appearance. They are durable and long-lasting when compared to other cosmetic treatments.
Many everyday things like coffee, tea and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve. Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.
If you suffer from headaches or pain, clicking or popping while chewing, there may be problems with your temporomandibular joint (or TMJ). Call us today to schedule a free TMJ treatment consultation.
By actively preventing disease and decay through regular home care, professional dental cleanings and regular exams, you will maintain a healthy, beautiful smile for life.
Some of our patients feel strongly about the potential health risks surrounding amalgam fillings, and choose to have them removed. Dr. Slovan offers safe, environmentally-friendly mercury removal by following a strict protocol endorsed by the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology and the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists. Our standards are so high, we even have patients flying from out-of-state for our mercury-free services.
If it is your desire to have an amalgam filling removed, we can help. There are several precautions we can take with sanitary amalgam removal to make sure you are not exposed to any harmful substances that may contain mercury.
Dr. Jared Slovan has developed a mercury-safe protocol that provides eight layers of protection between you and the mercury in your fillings:
Pre-rinse – You’ll rinse with a dual-purpose mouth rinse that binds to mercury vapor excreted in your mouth from amalgam fillings prior to the procedure
We use rubber dam isolation (to isolate the area of treatment from the oral environment and prevention of contact with mercury particulate), if possible
You’ll breathe pure oxygen during the procedure in order to prevent any inhalation of mercury vapor
We use high-speed evacuation to remove the mercury particulate and vapor
We use a water-cooled, high-speed handpiece for irrigation during removal
We section the mercury fillings into pieces as large as possible
We use the IQ Air Dental Hg FlexVac, a mobile air-cleaning system with a flexible suction duct. The system is designed to capture drill aerosols, abrasion powder and mercury vapors during dental procedures. The flexible suction duct is typically placed on your chest, from where it directly captures drill aerosols and mercury vapors before they can spread
Post-rinse – You’ll rinse with a dual-purpose mouth rinse that binds to mercury vapor excreted in your mouth from amalgam fillings after the procedure
At our practice, we care for more than your smile–we care for you as a whole person!
When choosing a dentist, you want to make sure a holistic approach is used for all patient treatments. A holistic approach means every element of treatment reflects a commitment to the patient’s overall health. From inlays and onlays to standard fillings, our holistic dentistry experts in Phoenix are proud to be 100% mercury-free for more than 20 years!
In the past, standard treatment for cavities involved the placement of amalgam fillings. Amalgam is a shiny, metallic material that contains the potentially toxic substance mercury. Even in small amounts, mercury has been known to increase health risks and harm the environment. Our hope is to reduce danger to our patients while making a smaller impact on the environment by offering only mercury-free options.
Today’s dentistry offers safer (and more natural-looking) materials. With composite fillings, porcelain inlays and onlays, and zirconia implants, you now have access to more health-conscious dentistry. Not only will you feel confident knowing your restoration is free of toxins, you’ll also experience the benefits of less drilling and stronger tooth structure. What’s more, is our composite materials are color-matched to blend discreetly with the rest of your smile.
A beautifully-aligned natural smile can be obtained both with traditional metal braces and other more subtle options like Invisalign® "invisible" orthodontics. We provide orthodontics for adults, teens, and children and have many choices. Please contact us today for a free orthodontic consultation!
