Have the smile you’ve always wanted without the hassle of braces. Invisalign is the clear alternative to braces. Invisalign transparent braces straighten your teeth using a series of invisible custom-molded, removable aligners. The convenience and ease of the Invisalign system has made it the choice of over half a million people. This cosmetic dentistry practice uses no metal wires or bands to irritate your mouth, and best of all, most people won’t notice you’re even wearing them.
This cosmetic dentistry process at Sharon Dental Group begins with a computer-generated image of what your teeth will look like at each stage of the Invisalign treatment, right up until the end of treatment. Custom snap-on aligners are then created to pressure specific teeth to move into place, beginning with the back teeth and finishing with the front. Unlike traditional braces, with Invisalign there’s no tightening or adjustments. By simply changing aligners approximately every two weeks, your teeth gradually move into straighter position. The results: a big, beautiful smile.

Dental veneers can beautify your smile by concealing stains, chips, injuries, or worn and misaligned teeth. Dental veneers, which are made of ultra-thin, customized material, are designed to slide over your teeth. They look incredibly natural, are long lasting, and it is relatively easy to apply by our cosmetic dentists. Because they’re resistant to staining, dental veneers are one of the best cosmetic dental options available. Improving the look of your smile can do wonders.

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored composite resin is applied to restore or improve your smile when you have chipped, fractured, decayed or discolored teeth. With exposure to a concentrated halogen light, this material actually "bonds" to the tooth for a healthy, natural-looking smile.
Bonding is among the easiest and most affordable of all dental procedures. Bonding usually only requires one visit. The bonding procedure removes less tooth enamel than other dental restorations and generally takes only about 30 to 60 minutes per tooth to complete.
Because the material used in bonding is not as strong as other dental restorations, bonding is usually best suited for small cosmetic changes or for restoration of teeth in areas of low bite pressure (for example, front teeth).
Your dentist will instruct you on how to protect your bonding restoration. With proper care, dental bonding usually lasts for several years, but as with most dental restorations they will someday require replacement.
Reasons for getting dental bonding:
To repair chipped or cracked teeth
To restore appearance of discolored teeth
As an aesthetically pleasing alternative to amalgam (silver) fillings
To close gaps between teeth
To make teeth look longer or otherwise change their shape
To protect part of the tooth’s root that has become exposed due to gum recession
Usually only one appointment is required for a dental bonding procedure. First, your dentist will apply an etching solution to roughen the tooth’s surface so the bonding material can better adhere. Next, a resin that precisely matches the shade of your tooth will be carefully applied and shaped in layers. After each layer is applied it is hardened with a concentrated halogen light or laser. Finally, the doctor will carefully trim, shape and polish the bonding material. Unless the bonding is being used to fill a decayed tooth, anesthesia is usually not necessary.
Gone are the days when tooth ailments and cavities could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings. Today, modern, tooth colored fillings — or white fillings — made of durable resin or porcelain can be bonded to your teeth for a stronger, more natural-looking effect. The Sharon Dental Group dentists are masters at matching the exact filling shade to your individual tooth color. These revolutionary tooth colored fillings are virtually undetectable and are easy to apply.
