Dental Services Offered
What are Some of the Services We Provide?
We all want a bright smile that we can be proud of, however, it is not always easy when it means we have to compromise some of the things we love, such as wine and coffee. However, today we have various teeth whitening procedures that have proven to be effective and that we are proud to offer you as our valued patient.
What makes over the counter teeth whitening kits so popular is that they can be done at home. These trays are available for both sensitive and non-sensitive teeth. Each teeth whitening kit consists of impression trays and teeth whitening gels. These "take-home trays" are engineered for anyone to use, and come with instructions on how to perform the procedure yourself.
Although having great oral habits is a great start, many agree getting their teeth cleaned by a professional is needed and required for a healthy mouth. These professional cleanings can prevent you from cavities, gingivitis, tooth decay, periodontal disease, and more. Also, they might help you remove dental plaque from your teeth and are a recommended procedure to get done at least twice a year, maybe more depending on our dentist’s recommendation. Additionally, professional teeth cleanings done by our dentist at New Horizons Dental Center inHerndon, Virginia will maintain your smile looking great.
Fastbraces is a technology that is used when the teeth are overcrowded or deformed. This treatment is versatile, adjusts easily and is known to align faster than traditional braces.
Invisalign is a treatment that allows you to have straight teeth without the look of metal braces. It basically looks like a clear plastic retainer and works wonderfully, almost like invisible braces. The best part is that you can remove it anytime you want. You can easily take it off when you want to eat, brush, floss, or go somewhere. Our dentist will tell you exactly how long you must keep them on every day after assessing the structure and shape of your teeth. Invisalign can give visible results in just about six weeks, but the duration can vary depending on how much your teeth need work.
A digital x-ray is one of the most important advancements in dentistry. The technology replaces the concept of traditional films used in conventional X-rays with advanced, electronic sensors.
An Intraoral Camera is a type of dental imaging equipment which provides great convenience in taking internal images of a patient’s mouth. It helps in viewing the internal sections of the mouth with improved visibility.
iTero Dental Impressions
iTero Dental Impression is a simple scanner to obtain a clearer and instant image of teeth. To do this procedure, the scanner makes use of 3D digital scans and offers patients a more convenient and comfortable digital imaging experience.
Oral Cancer Screening (VELscope)
As the name indicates, the equipment is especially used for the screening of oral cancer. While oral cancer is not fatal, it can be a major problem if it is not diagnosed or treated in a timely manner. This technology helps identify abnormal tissue development that commonly results in cancer. It also helps inspect abnormal changes in other parts of the mouth, such as the tongue.
