Straighten Your Teeth without a Mouth Full of Metal

Do you look in the mirror and see teeth that are crooked, crowded, gapped? Do you think that wearing braces at this point in your life is out of the question?

If so, think again. At this point in your life and career, wearing metal orthodontic braces simply isn’t practical, but it is possible to straighten your teeth and get a beautiful, visually appealing smile.

The dentists at Brighton Family Dental Group understand your image concerns and are here to help. That’s why we offer Invisalign in our Brighton, Massachusetts, dental office.

Ask Us About Teeth Whitening!

Sometimes, teeth whitening is all you need to bring new life to your smile. It has been proven that people with bright, white smiles give off a positive first impression. Often, these people are more successful, both personally and professionally, than those with dull and discolored teeth.

Teeth whitening is the most requested cosmetic dental procedure. While countless over-the-counter products claim to brighten your smile, people who are serious about whitening their teeth know to look elsewhere.

Over-the-counter products can’t give you the dramatic results you want, or only provide temporary results. As dentists, we offer a whitening system that’s more potent than any over-the-counter product. To be safe and get the bright, white smile you want, a dentist-prescribed whitening system is the way to go.

Gum Disease and Your Heart

The best prevention against gum disease is attending six month checkups and cleanings. At these routine dental appointments, we will evaluate your soft tissues and look for signs of disease. If we find gum disease in the mild to moderate stage, it may be treated in three steps. This process is usually referred to as a deep cleaning.

Screening for Oral Cancer Can Save Your Life

Because many people don’t know about the dangers of oral cancer, they don’t make screening a priority. At Brighton Family Dental Group, we respect the trust you place in us as your oral healthcare providers, so we will do all we can to keep you healthy. Every time you visit us for a checkup, we will inspect your soft tissue for signs of oral cancer.

What is a Smile Makeover?

Believe it or not, you probably know someone with porcelain veneers. Known as instant orthodontics, veneers are often the primary procedure in a smile makeover procedure for a reason. They correct several cosmetic dental problems with just one procedure.
