Q How does CEREC create a restoration?

After the damaged enamel is cleaned out, the tooth surface is prepared. A highly magnified photo is taken and sent to the computer. Dr. Mulder uses this 3-D digital image to design your new restoration, whether it’s a crown, an inlay, or an onlay.
Then he chooses a shade of porcelain that matches your natural teeth from which to make the restoration. The CEREC milling machine shapes the raw porcelain to Dr. Mulder’s specifications, so that it will fit your tooth exactly. After placing and bonding it in position, Dr. Mulder will polish it to a glossy finish.

Q Is Invisalign plastic really strong enough to move my teeth?

Not everybody is a good candidate for Invisalign. But if you are, these clear aligners are as effective as metal brackets. Whether you need subtle or more dramatic straightening, Invisalign has proven itself as effective. To ensure the best results, make sure to comply with Dr. Mulder’s wearing instructions.

Q Is invisalign more expensive than metal braces?

The cost of your Invisalign treatment will be determined by the number of aligners you will require to reach your desired smile, and by the length of treatment time. The treatment is kept affordable with payment plans.

Q How does laser soft tissue reconturing work?

Dr. Mulder applies the precise energy of the laser light onto areas of excess gum tissue. He uses a laser wavelength tailored for gum tissue, as opposed to tooth enamel, for instance. Different body tissues absorb different wavelengths and reflect other wavelengths. The laser instantly vaporizes unwanted gum tissue, leaving all other tissue intact. A topical anesthetic is used and healing afterwards is very fast and easy.

Q What advantages do porcelain veneers offer?

Porcelain makes such a great material for cosmetic restorations and veneers because it is strong, stain-resistant, and translucent. It absorbs and reflects light the same way that natural enamel does. Dr. Mulder can match your porcelain veneers to your natural tooth shade. Veneers done well are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth!

Q How long will the sedatives affect me for?

Typically you’ll be taking one-pill, which will keep you drowsy and relaxed for four to six hours. Whether your dental procedure(s) take that entire time or not, do make sure to have someone to drive you home.
