The Dental Services We Provide at Affordable Dentistry Today
Professional Teeth Cleaning
We recommend that you visit us at Affordable Dentistry Today at least twice a year for a regular check-up and professional teeth cleaning. A professional teeth cleaning at Affordable Dentistry Today will remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home just can't handle. Professionally eliminating this build-up of plaque and tartar helps to prevent bad breath, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. The best dental care we can provide is preventative care. Regular check-ups and professional teeth cleaning prevent small problems from becoming more complex and difficult to treat. Call Affordable Dentistry Today in Alton, Illinois today at 618-465-5815 to begin the dental care regimen that saves you time, money, and stress.
Over time, your teeth's natural whiteness can fade or become discolored as the result of diet, personal habits, or simply getting older. However, the teeth whitening procedures we offer here at Affordable Dentistry Today can restore the brilliance of your smile. The Zoom! teeth whitening method has a proven track record of dramatically improving the whiteness of your smile by up to six shades in a very short amount of time. Depending on your needs and preferences, our dental team will help you choose whether to receive this treatment in our office or apply it yourself in the comfort and convenience of your own home.
Corrective Dental Services
You may be unhappy about the spacing or misalignment of your teeth, but you would like to know more about the options available. We encourage you to call us at 618-465-5815 and talk to our friendly, highly trained staff about our corrective dental procedures -- from reliably effective and affordable metal braces to the latest innovative orthodontic methods like Invisalign clear aligners, our team will work with you to determine what method works best for your lifestyle and dental needs. Invisalign is a wonderful option for working adults because it produces similar results to traditional metal braces, but utilizes a series of custom-made, clear aligners that are virtually invisible. You are able to maintain your professional appearance and enjoy the dramatic improvement of properly aligned teeth without feeling self-conscious.
A dental crown is a "cap" that is placed over a tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance. A crown might be needed to protect a decayed tooth from more damage, to restore an already broken tooth, to hold a dental bridge in place or to cover a severely discolored tooth. Crowns offer long-term durability, protection from decay and cracking, and an improved, natural appearance. A crown may be right for you if...
- you have chipped or broken teeth that are immediately visible as soon as the dental array is revealed. This situation could cause a gap in your teeth that requires a surface replacement.
- you have undergone a root canal that requires a significant portion of the tooth to be removed to make way for the support structure and the cleaning process.
- you have weak and damage-prone teeth.
- you have a tooth that is severely discolored.
Innovative Dental Care Technology
We utilize the most advanced technology and state-of-the-art equipment in order to provide our patients with the highest quality of dental care. Our dental team uses the iTero Element scanner to produce high-resolution 3D images of your upper and lower dental structure. The iTero's virtual model of your teeth is created without the time and discomfort required by the use of traditional x-ray photos and the dreaded dental impression goo necessary for making a physical model. In only seconds, your dental team will be able to show you a model of your teeth's current condition as a well as a side-by-side simulation of your smile with its ideal spacing and alignment. The unprecedented resolution capable with the iTero Element allows the hygienists and dentist here at Affordable Dentistry Today to provide you with a higher quality of oral health care by identifying dental problems such as early decay or microscopic fractures in a fraction of the time required by old-fashioned methods. This means that your dentist can give you a diagnosis with greater accuracy while also decreasing the amount of time for your examination.
