Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is an alternative to teeth veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misaligned.

How does dental bonding work?

The tooth is prepared for dental bonding by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed and polished to a natural appearance.

How long does dental bonding last?

The bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit, and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. However, since the plastic resin used is not as strong as your natural tooth enamel, it is more likely to stain, chip or break than natural teeth. Bonding typically lasts three to five years before need of repair.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental check up

What are teeth Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.

Placing custom teeth veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. We place veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s smile.

Do Veneers look natural?

When bonded to the teeth, the ultra-thin porcelain veneers are virtually undetectable and highly resistant to coffee, tea, or even cigarette stains. For strength and appearance, their resemblance to healthy, white tooth enamel is unsurpassed by other restorative options.

How durable are porcelain Veneers?

With proper care, porcelain veneers will brighten your smile for well over a decade.

Dr. Quickstad and Dr. Wang will ensure that your veneers are crafted from the highest quality porcelains and are bonded with the most advanced and proven materials available.

Refraining from using your veneers as tools to open and cut things will prolong their life, and if accidental breakage or damage occurs, it is usually possible to replace only the veneer involved.

Teeth whitening

If you are interested in our Sammamish teeth whitening services, Dr. Quickstad or Dr. Wang will determine if you are a good candidate and review your options during a consultation. You will be able to choose from two options:

01. Take Home Whitening Trays
02. In Office Bleaching

You can only lighten your upper teeth or both the upper and lower, depending on how much teeth you show when you talk and smile.

Teeth can be discolored due to either staining, aging, or chemical damage to teeth. Whitening can be completed to brighten and restore your smile. In cases of extreme discoloration or damage, crowns or veneers may be the only choice. However, in many cases our Sammamish teeth whitening services may provide great results.

*Warning*

In some cases whitening can cause increased sensitivity. If you currently have sensitive teeth, whitening may cause the sensitivity to worsen. Please consult with Dr. Quickstad or Dr. Wang prior to starting whitening.

How is teeth whitening done?

Our Sammamish cosmetic dentistry office has two systems by Opalescence that both produce great results.

One is an at home bleaching system called “GO”. The whitening material is used each night for about 45 minutes for a week to ten days. At the end of the week a noticeable change in color will be seen.

The other bleaching option is our In-Office Philips Zoom! bleaching. An 1-2 hour appointment will be used to apply the bleach and complete your whitening. More significant whitening results can be obtained with our In-Office option.

Note: For very severely stained teeth, crowns or dental veneers may be more appropriate.

Clear braces

The invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. To discuss clear braces in the Issaquah WA area, please feel free to contact us to schedule an appointment.

For information on Invisalign, please visit www.invisalign.com.

Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets.

The aligners are made through a combination of Dr. Quickstad or Dr. Wang‘s expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.

You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss.
As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position Drs. Quickstad or Wang has prescribed.

You’ll visit Drs. Quickstad or Wang about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.

Total treatment time averages 9 – 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
