Invisalign Edmond, OK
Sometimes wearing metal braces doesn’t fit into your plan, but you no longer have to go through this process to straighten your teeth. Our Invisalign services here in Edmond, OK is a tried and true teeth straightening system that uses clear aligners to straighten your teeth in increments. Uncomfortable wires and brackets are a thing of the past. With InvisalignTM, you can remove the aligners to eat and drink or if you have an important meeting to attend.
Invisalign uses a 3D imaging system to map out your treatment so you can see what your teeth could look like when your treatment is completed. We use this imaging system to create a series of custom aligners that are replaced every two weeks. The entire treatment typically takes nine to fifteen months. Most people won’t even realize you are undergoing treatment.

Change your smile… change your life.
You can have a whiter, straighter, more beautiful smile through the application of veneers. Most smile makeovers you see on TV are created using this cosmetic procedure. If you have chipped teeth, crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, or dull or stained teeth, veneers may be the perfect solution for you.
Imagine having the brilliant, white smile you had as a child. You can have the smile you once had through the Zoom!™ tooth whitening system or with an at-home whitening kit.
The Zoom!™ tooth whitening system is a powerful, in-office procedure that is safe, effective, and long lasting. This revolutionary, new procedure gives you brighter, whiter teeth in a single office visit. Zoom!™ whitening involves the application of a proprietary gel that, when exposed to a specialized light source, breaks down the stains on your teeth, leaving you with a beautiful smile. Most Zoom!™ appointments have the patient in the office between 1.5 to 2 hrs. We take impressions for take home trays, take photos and apply the isolation and gel, etc. Ask us to find out if you are a candidate.
Tooth Whitening at Home
With At-Home-Whitening, Drs. Allen & Hansen make custom whitening trays for you that are designed to fit your teeth. Your take-home treatment supplies include prescription whitening gel and syringes to fill the customized tray with the gel. Your doctor’s directions tell you how long you must apply the gel to your teeth and how many days it will take to obtain the results you want.
|The procedure begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed.|
|Our highly skilled team then applies the Zoom Whitening Gel, and activates the Zoom light. The gel and light work together to gently penetrate the stains on your teeth breaking up to discoloration.|
|During this time, you sit back and relax. Watch a DVD or listen to music. Total treatment time is only 45 minutes, broken up into 3 fifteen minute sessions.|
|You may now go home with the dazzling white smile you always wanted.|
The loss of a tooth due to gum disease, injury, decay, or simply wear can greatly affect your self esteem and can create significant problems for your dental health if not corrected. Missing teeth can cause you to chew differently and can result in mouth pain. As your remaining teeth shift to compensate, it can cause gaps and spaces that only make the situation worse. At Santa Fe Dental we can customize a porcelain bridge that will help keep your smile aligned and your bite functional. A porcelain bridge is semi-permanent, which means it can only be affixed and removed by a qualified dentist. This means you can have a long-term solution to your damaged smile.
During your lifetime, your teeth undergo a tremendous amount of stress, which can result in discolored, chipped, and cracked teeth. Porcelain crowns can correct these problems and return your smile to its original brilliance. After some preparation, a specially-fitted crown, made of either porcelain pressed to metal, porcelain throughout, or precious metal, is positioned over your tooth to restore the look and functionality of your smile.
Tooth-Colored Fillings (Composites)
When decay is removed from your tooth, it has to be replaced with a filling. Traditionally, amalgam (silver) fillings were used to fill these spaces. Now, with advancements in dentistry, we have tooth-colored resin fillings that blend in with your teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking restoration.
The newest advancement in veneer technology is Lumineers® by Cerinate. These contact-lens thin veneers offer a painless way for us to give you a whiter and perfectly-aligned smile without any grinding of your natural tooth structure. They can also be placed over existing crowns and bridgework. Many people desire a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile. If this sounds like you, ask us to evaluate your specific situation and listen to the exact changes you have in mind.
Bonding uses a tooth-colored material (resin) to correct chipped, broken, and discolored teeth, and in some cases space between teeth. It is a more conservative and less expensive treatment than veneers and can be done without destroying the natural structure of the tooth. While there are benefits to bonding, they don’t last as long as veneers and can stain.
If you can see a lot of your gum tissue when you smile, then there is a treatment available for you. Gum contouring is a procedure in which we recontour the appearance of your gums. With the addition of beautiful veneers, your gummy smile disappears and you are left with a beautiful, proportionate, natural-looking smile.
