“Dr. Abide is an incredible dentist that takes pride in his work in cosmetic and general dentistry. I have seen him for over 15 years and referred friends and family that were amazed by the natural looking results he achieved. His results are breathtaking every single time!! He also has the very best staff. Valerie, Tisha and Mary are very friendly, professional and the best in their roles. If you want a dentist with a wealth of knowledge that leads his practice with integrity I highly recommend Dr. Abide.”
Dr. Abide offers the popular and highly effective KöR® Deep Bleaching™ teeth whitening system for his patients’ benefit, as well as at-home treatment that allows patients to whiten their teeth when it is most convenient for them. With the KöR® Deep Bleaching™ system, whitening gel is applied to the teeth. This sets off an oxidation process within the tooth that helps break up both extrinsic and intrinsic stains. Highly effective and convenient, it offers many benefits.
If you’ve ever wanted to have your teeth straightened but have been turned off by bulky metal braces, then Invisalign® might be a good option for you. Unlike traditional metal braces, the Invisalign® system doesn’t use wires or brackets to align the teeth. Instead, the system uses a series of clear plastic aligners that are designed to gradually move the teeth into their ideal position. In addition to being clear and virtually invisible, the aligners are removable, making chewing, brushing, and flossing much easier than with traditional braces.
Dental bonding, like porcelain veneers, offers a quick and pain-free way to conceal chips and cracks in your teeth. Bonding can also make small teeth look more proportionate and help improve misalignments. During dental bonding, Dr. Abide and his team will apply a thin coat of plastic resin over your damaged teeth. Then, the resin material will be shaped and sculpted to match your existing teeth. This process takes only a few minutes and will leave you with a beautiful new smile. Though not as long-lasting as porcelain veneers, dental bonding can endure for years with the proper care.
Cosmetic tissue sculpting (CTS) is a procedure utilized by Dr. Abide when a person has excessive, insufficient or uneven gum tissue surrounding their teeth. For some people, teeth appear shorter because they are covered up by too much gum. This gum tissue can lead to what we refer to as a “gummy” smile. In this situation, Dr. Abide will perform (CTS) which removes excessive tissue while taking into account the proper tooth proportions that work with your facial structure. This technique allows for a more youthful, lengthier tooth structure to work in harmony with your face. CTS takes one appointment and is very cost effective, providing amazing results while enhancing the symmetry and aesthetics of your entire smile. In other situations, some people have gums that have receded excessively, making the teeth cosmetically unpleasing. This results in the appearance of a “toothy” smile, too long of a tooth making the teeth more susceptible to discomfort caused by hot or cold foods. If this is the case, a different procedure is used to perform a “gum tissue graft”. This procedure gives you back tissue that you have lost over the years, producing a healthy, balanced, and attractive smile.
