Whiteners purchased at a drugstore typically have a lower concentration of the bleaching ingredients used to lighten the shade of your teeth. Some will remove a portion of surface stains, yet none of them will brighten your smile to the standards of an in-office whitening treatment.
In our office, we use our Sinsational Smiles whitening trays to encourage lasting, beautiful results while protecting your tooth enamel from sensitivity.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Alexandra Cristescu, she will first evaluate your current dental health and ask you about what changes you may wish to make. She will take impressions of your smile to create a diagnostic version made of wax. Next, she will apply the desired changes to this recreation so you can get an idea of the outcome. You can even place the wax-ups into your mouth so you can get a visual representation.
During each phase of your treatment, you will be asked if you are totally satisfied with the process before moving on to the next phase. You will always have the final say!
Through extensive continuing education, Dr. Alexandra Cristescu is kept apprised of what is going on with many avenues of dentistry as the field is always changing. She attends numerous advanced courses so that she can continue to offer patients the most current techniques available.
Dr. Cristescu is also a part of numerous study clubs, such as Spear Study Club and Seattle Study Club.
For quite a few years, silver was one of the top materials used for fillings. Since then, however, amalgam fillings have started to break down, sometimes leaking mercury into the body.
At Eastside Family Dentistry, we only use composite materials to fill in cavities. Why? The resin is durable, long-lasting, natural looking, and virtually unnoticeable. Composite fillings are safe and won’t discolor over time.
If you have older, silver fillings and have some concerns about them, contact us. Dr. Cristescu will examine your teeth and fillings to determine if you should leave the fillings in place, or if they should be replaced to protect your health.
If you have discolored or stained teeth, visit our office so that Dr. Alexandra Cristescu can evaluate their condition. This allows her to pinpoint any specific causes as well as offer various treatment options suitable for your exact needs.
Dr. Cristescu may suggest a teeth whitening procedure, which can be completed in-office, or we can set you up with take-home trays for your convenience. For chips, cracks, or broken teeth, veneers or dental bonding may be a better solution as they can provide instant transformations, immediately improving any imperfections in your smile.
A dental implant is a strong titanium screw that integrates into the jaw for a superior fit and durability. It replaces the roots of your original tooth, and anchors a crown, part of a bridge, or denture in place.
Dental implants feel and function exactly like your original tooth. The activities you enjoyed or performed without a second thought before tooth loss, such as eating, talking, laughing, and smiling, are effortless again. The implant replaces what you lost while maintaining the structure of your face and holding the gum tissue in place.
Patients of all ages are ideal candidates for dental implants. If you are missing teeth and think that dental implants might be the right answer for you, contact us and schedule a consultation. Dr. Alexandra Cristescu will examine your mouth, and let you know which treatment options might be best.
