Think of your teeth and gums as a great work of art: A fabulous smile. Straight. Bright. White. Healthy. The right combination for a perfect image. Here's how we can help you obtain- and keep- that perfect smile:
Bleaching: Our at home bleaching is available to make your natural teeth return to their original whiteness. This technique offers our patients the ability to modulate the depth of whiteness that they are looking for. It also has the flexibility over other techniques in that the whitening can be touched up at any time. The "at home" method is more effective than the over-the-counter white strips because it reaches the areas between teeth for a natural look. We prefer this method over the laser power bleaching method because teeth are left less sensitive and it allows for easy touch up solutions to uneven whiteness.
Invisalign: Invisalign is a remarkable system of invisible aligners made from impressions of your mouth that help straighten teeth comfortably without metal bands, brackets or wires. The aligners are easily removable so you can eat, drink brush and floss. Best of all, no one will know you're wearing Invisalign aligners unless you tell them. Dr. Davidson has been a certified Invisalign provider for over 7 years.
Now you can enjoy the smile you have always wanted without the annoyance of metal in your mouth. No huge brackets darkening your smile. No irritated lips or cheeks. Invisalign can eliminate crowding or large spaces between your teeth. Even complex cases such as overbites, underbites and crossbites can be treated.
Typically, Invisalign cases take about 6 to 18 months from start to finish. You will see Dr. Davidson every 2-4 weeks to review your progress and will receive additional aligners with every visit. Treatment time and the number of aligners you receive will vary case by case.
Oral Health Examinations: Every new patient at our office receives a thorough examination and a precise assessment of his or her oral health. Dr. Davidson will discuss your needs, answer your questions, advise you of options, and make recommendations for treatment. Intra-oral and digital cameras, may be used when indicated for even more in-depth analysis. Multimedia and projected presentations may be used for comparative analysis and discussion of complex treatment plans and cosmetic treatment.
Prophylaxis and Scaling: We can perform even the most difficult cleanings thoroughly and comfortably using ultrasonic instruments. This gentle vibration, called cavitation, removes heavy deposits allowing us to reduce the need for scraping. You'll enjoy the nurturing care of regular professional cleanings at our office in San Francisco. They enhance the health of your teeth and gums, and you'll feel better with your mouth and breath as fresh as they can be.
Cosmetic Dentistry: A beautiful smile makes you look healthier and younger, no matter your age. Dr. Davidson places invisible mercury-free fillings and uses state-of-the-art methods to whiten your smile. He can correct chips and flaws with composite bonding or beautify your smile with porcelain veneers. Your wonderful transformation can be life changing.
Periodontal (Gum) Treatment: The gum and bone tissue are the foundation for a healthy smile. We offer the latest treatments to stop the damage caused by periodontal disease-a leading cause of adult tooth loss. These include scaling and root planing, insertion of new time-released pharmaceuticals and tissue regenerative procedures. When more advanced surgical techniques are needed, we will work in consultation with a periodontal specialist to coordinate treatments to get the quality results that you deserve.
Dental Implants: Do you wish you could start over? Dental implants are like a second chance at having natural teeth. These durable tooth replacements allow you to close the gaps from missing teeth, or anchor custom-fit dentures and partials for unsurpassed stability and comfort. Dr. Davidson has been using dental implants as a treatment modality for over ten years. He will coordinate implant placement with a specialist so that all treatment is with the craftsmanship and attention to detail that our patients have come to trust.
Crowns and Bridges: There are many new advanced materials for inlays, crowns and bridges. Their beauty and longevity depend upon using the best applications and the finest craftsmanship. Dr. Davidson has had years of experience with porcelain full crowns and porcelain inlays and onlays. He also has participated in a three year curriculum in cast gold techniques through the prestigious Tucker Study Club. He uses all the latest materials and techniques and can recommend the particular type that will best suit your needs for strength, function and incredibly natural-looking results.
