CEREC® same-day crowns
We now offer CEREC® same-day crowns. These highly durable crowns are milled in the office the same day that your tooth is prepared for the crown and seated permanently on your tooth, all in one visit! CEREC® crowns offer many advantages, including saving you time as it requires only one appointment. We create your custom crown right here in our office using a digital 3D scan of your tooth. The new crown is fabricated using precise technology resulting in a crown that will entirely seal and protect your tooth for the long term. CEREC® crowns last on average 10-15 years, but when cared for correctly, they can last much longer. CEREC® same-day crowns can be fabricated from a variety of highly aesthetic, durable ceramic materials such as E-Max and Zirconia. Connect with us today to learn more!
The most common restoration used to restore and correct an esthetic dental problem is veneers. With major technological advancements in the world of dental ceramics, veneers are a highly esthetic solution to correct teeth abnormalities like tooth discoloration (brown, grey, yellow), very small teeth (peg-shaped teeth), a deviated or canted tooth midline in relation to the midline of the face, spaces between front teeth, and other esthetic issues. A great advantage of veneer treatment is that it requires a minimal amount of tooth structure to be removed before applying the veneer. A thin layer of the tooth enamel is removed and replaced with a very thin but very strong ceramic veneer. The veneer is created to correct the color, shape, or placement of the front teeth or a combination of these issues. The veneer is bonded to the front surface of the tooth, resulting in a beautiful, natural appearance. The veneers we use in our Mountain View office are made of highly esthetic E-Max ceramic or other high-quality ceramic. Dr. Melko will fully explain whether crowns or veneers are recommended in correcting an esthetic dental problem.
Invisalign clear aligners
Misaligned, crowded, or unevenly spaced teeth present more than just an esthetic issue. There are serious physical health issues that can develop when teeth are not aligned properly. Learn more about Invisalign treatment in Mountain View, CA under the care of Dr. Melko.
If you would like to achieve a brighter, whiter smile in a short amount of time, we offer in-office Zoom Whitening. In-office Zoom Whitening utilizes light-activated 25% hydrogen peroxide gel along with a full-arch bleaching lamp for both upper and lower teeth. It is the bleaching lamp that makes the procedure fast and very effective, achieving up to 4-6 shades brighter than your existing tooth shade in a single appointment. The gel is applied in increments of 15 minutes and additional hydrogen peroxide can be added each time depending on how bright you want your smile to be. Our skilled team members will be monitoring you during the whitening treatment and the process is efficient and safe.
Depending on your dietary lifestyle, the effects of Zoom Whitening can last for 12-24 months. The wide range of variation depends on how consistent you are with your home oral care routine and if you drink coffee or tea or eat foods that might stain the teeth. It is required that you avoid these types of drinks and foods for 48 hours after the in-office treatment. In certain cases, a take-home whitening kit will be needed after 6-8 months to enhance your brightened smile. You might experience some tooth sensitivity for 24-48 hours after the Zoom Whitening treatment. It is advised that you use sensitive toothpaste for the first 3-4 days after the procedure and that you brush your teeth with a soft-bristled brush and lukewarm water.
