If you have questions, you don’t have to worry, because here at Sheen Dental, we want to give you all the information and knowledge needed to take care of your mouth. We believe that having a confident smile can lead to a happy life, so let us help you.

In this short article, our dentist Richmond will answer all your burning questions regarding what we can actually help with here at our dental office.


Can we help with missing teeth?


When there are any problems with your teeth, we should be your go-to. We understand how difficult it can be losing a tooth or multiple, whether this is found in physical effects or emotionally. Being able to smile with confidence is fundamental to your lifestyle, and we offer dental implants, as well as a range of other treatments, to help get you started. Our dental implants are screwed into your mouth before the artificial tooth is placed on top, giving you a full mouth of teeth to be happy with. There are a variety of benefits to implants, including improved speech, helping to stimulate new growth in your mouth and avoiding any sunken facial features. The biggest benefit, however, will be that the artificial teeth will look and work exactly like your real ones, so you don’t have to change your lifestyle.


Can we help with discoloured teeth?


Over time, it is completely normal for your teeth to lose the bright, white shine that you may have become accustomed to. This might even happen sooner rather than later if you smoke or enjoy dark foods and drinks. However, with our in-clinic and at-home whitening treatments, you can be well on your way to getting back to the smile you’re happy with. We give detailed instructions with our at-home treatments, so you don’t have to worry about doing anything wrong. The in-office option will have you in and out within an hour.


Can we help with misaligned teeth?


There are numerous ways that your teeth can be misaligned. They include being overcrowded, having gaps, an underbite, an overbite or even just being slightly crooked. We understand that as an adult, you might not want to have braces and might not have the time to come into our clinic whenever they need to be tightened, which is why we offer Invisalign as a clear aligner alternative that is mostly done at your own leisure. There will be multiple trays that you will swap out at different intervals to keep your teeth moving into your desired position. Invisalign aligners are completely removable, so you can keep on top of your oral hygiene as well as cleaning the trays when you feel it is needed. They work by adding pressure to your teeth and moving them into position, you might not even notice them at work!
