Invisalign

Instead of wires or bands attached to the outside of your teeth where the world can see them, Invisalign treatment utilizes cutting edge technology to prepare a series of clear plastic molds of your teeth during each stage of alignment. Every two weeks, we will check on your progress and give you the next mold, or "aligner," to keep your treatment on track.

The aligners are removable, making it for easier eating, brushing and flossing. They move your teeth into place gradually, but in a much shorter length of time than normal braces – you'll achieve results in six months to a year with Invisalign.

Zoom Teeth Whitening

Imagine making your teeth whiter on eight shades in 45 minutes while watching television or listening to music!

Zoom! It is a procedure in the office that recently appeared on ABC Extreme Makeover. After a dental cleaning, the safe and effective bleaching treatment is divided into three identical segments of 15 minutes, performed in a single session:

Zoom! Bleaching gel is applied to the teeth.

A lightly heated lamp exposes its light in your mouth for 15 minutes, in this time you can relax and watch TV or listen to music.

The light activates the ingredients in the gel, penetrating the teeth and whitening - without damaging the structure of your teeth.

After 15 minutes, rinse! That's all you have to do. Zoom! It takes much less time than the test at home and the toothpaste, and makes the teeth 2-4 shades lighter. You will see immediate results.

Root Canal

Root canals are performed on teeth with deep caries, which promote inflammation or necrosis (death) of the dental pulp.

Endodontics allows the dentist to remove the pulp, clean the canal and seal the tooth, achieving the effective protection and, with this, saving the tooth..

Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment may be necessary to repair:

- Inadequate bites

- Mandible desalination

- Crooked teeth

- Facial reconstruction

The most common way to treat orthodontic problems is to apply braces to the teeth.

Composite Fillings

These are made from resins that can be matched to the color of your teeth, so they become invisible when applied.

Composite fillings also provide an excellent seal on the affected area, so that the tooth decay can be prevented.

Crowns

Depending on the type of treatment you have received for your dental problem, it might be necessary to:

- Make your tooth restored to its original size and shape.

- Supply additional physical support for the treated tooth.

- Get a complete "makeover" on the affected tooth For cases like these, a crown is the most logical option.

Teeth Whitening

Stained or discolored teeth are very common among adults of all ages, and come from different sources, such as: Coffee, Red wine, Soda, Tea, Tobacco, Some medications.

The key to a long lasting, bright and white smile is to have them bleached by a cosmetic dentist before discoloration becomes too severe. Whether you choose an in-office or at-home process, you can be sure that you will receive solid advice, professional care, and a smile that will knock off the socks of all the people!

Laser Dentistry

Laser dentistry can eliminate the need for anesthesia, excessive bleeding and stitches after surgery, as well as a reduced recovery time.

Benefits of laser dentistry:

- Less recovery time and a procedure with little pain or even painless.

- The gums are reformed without cutting.

- Benign tumors can be removed from the mouth area without the need for sutures.

- The teeth whitening can be done in a short time.

Oral Cancer Screening

From the thousands of people who are diagnosed with oral cancer each year, two-thirds of the cases are found at the late stages of the disease. This is largely due to the fact that there is not a great level of awareness among the public of the symptoms and signs of oral cancer.

While smoking and alcohol consumption can cause oral cancer, heavy usage of both increases the risk exponentially. Symptoms of oral cancer can include:

- Problems at chewing

- Ulcers in and around the mouth that last longer than two weeks

- Small lesions or lumps, pale or dark colored, in the mouth area

Bridges

Like dental implants, dental bridges are used to replace a missing tooth, except that bridges are supported by the teeth on either sides called abutment teeth.

Like many cosmetic dental processes, placing bridges also serves as a restorative purpose. A dental bridge will improve your ability to chew and speak as well as a perfect smile. In a recent study, published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, dental bridges were shown to dramatically reduce the risk of losing teeth that are adjacent to a missing tooth. In addition, dental bridges can help to keep your jaw and face from changing shape, as they tend to do when a person has a missing teeth.

Cleaning & Consultation

We all know that a good oral hygiene keeps teeth looking bright and clear, but did you know that it is also essential for your overall health? A bad oral hygiene can lead to a variety of dental and medical problems, such as gum disease, infections, heart disease, stroke and even diabetes.

That's why dentists recommend that the teeth have to be cleaned professionally twice in a year. Teeth cleaning is the removal of dental plaque and tartar in order to prevent cavities, gingivitis and gum disease. The average dental cleaning is a routine procedure thsat is rarely painful and takes 30 to 45 minutes.

Veneers

One of the most popular and effective developments in cosmetic dentistry are the veneers, they are thin, custom made casings that cover the front side of your teeth. Veneers are used to correct uneven teeth, worn enamel, discoloration, chipped teeth and irregular spacing, and can last over 20 years. In some cases, veneers can serve a restorative purpose and can protect a damaged tooth from further harm.

Types of Veneers:

-Porcelain

-Resin Composite

-Lumineers

Dental Implants

Significantly stronger than bridges or dentures, a dental implant offers a single and a permanent solution to a lost tooth. The implant is integrated into your jaw with a small titanium screw and over the course of several months, naturally bonds with your mouth. This process is relatively simple and is effective in almost all cases, so there's no need to postpone the restoring of that great smile.

Tooth Extraction

At Quality Gentle Dental Care, we always do everything possible to treat your teeth and remedy any dental disease. Unfortunately, in some cases the damage to the teeth is at such an advanced stage that it may be necessary to extract the tooth in order to maintain your dental health.

Testimonials


Nora Blumberg

I want to let everyone know that I am very happy with my results. I was never been so comfortable with my smile EVER, until I visited Dr. Erico Carreño's dental office. Your staff was friendly and professional and I am grateful for the good work you have done! So many people compliment me on how natural my teeth look (like they were always just perfect), and to me that it is a huge compliment.They don’t look like veneers - they look like if I was born with them. The gap I had was always a big insecurity for me, especially being a performer, and now I don't even have to think about my teeth.Thanks Dr. Carreno!

I will recommend you to all my family and friends and return to you for all of my dental needs.

My teeth were pretty brown from 20 years of smoking. Stains all over the backsides of my teeth. I thought i was going to have to do a series of teeth whiting sessions. I had a deep cleaning done and it left my teeth looking amazing!!!! I was blown away.My dental technician was extremely meticulous and very gentle. I'm coming back soon to fill some cavities.

I would recommend QGDC to anyone.
