Santa Rosa cosmetic dentist Dr. Albers has received over a dozen awards for excellence in teaching, exceptional professional service, academic accomplishments, and significant professional contributions to the art and science of dentistry, over the past two decades.
Bleaching and Whitening
It is an undeniable fact that whiter teeth make up a prettier smile. In California, patients in the Santa Rosa area know that when it comes to creating a beautiful smile, Dr. Harry Albers is the person to go to. One of the easiest ways to brighten up the teeth is to get a lightening treatment, usually done with either bleaching or whitening. Many people get confused between these two procedures, and it is important to understand each one before deciding on which one could benefit you the most.
Tooth shaping is a procedure often carried out by Dr. Harry Albers for many of his patients in the Santa Rosa area who are in need of a quick—but lasting—fix for imperfections that tend to get noticed quite easily or are starting to affect the overall aesthetic of the mouth. If a tooth becomes chipped, or if the edges become worn out, or if the enamel starts to develop pits and grooves that become increasingly obvious over time, it will definitely take away from the attractive smile that patients work hard for. And this is when tooth shaping or contouring has come in handy.
Invisalign is a proprietary system that makes use of patented plastic resin aligners to straighten crooked teeth. Dr. Harry Albers is one of the most experienced Preferred Providers of Invisalign in Santa Rosa and has been using this revolutionary system to treat patients in Santa Rosa and make the entire process of teeth straightening more convenient and comfortable for the patient. The use of the clear plastic aligners has created such an impact over conventional metal braces that it has clearly taken orthodontics to an entirely new level.
Tooth Colored Fillings
To be able to have the perfect smile, it is important to have great looking teeth. Dr. Harry Albers wants nothing more for his patients in Santa Rosa and so he is always quick to emphasize the advantages of using tooth colored fillings to restores the structure and appearance of teeth after they have become afflicted with cavities.
In cases when teeth cannot be repaired by the use of ordinary bonding procedures, Dr. Harry Albers recommends the use of esthetic veneers to cover the imperfection and create a façade that is both pleasing to the eye and structurally sound. Esthetic veneers are thin, shell-like coverings that are placed over the parts of the tooth that show visible signs of deterioration, discoloration, deformity, or crookedness in order to restore the aesthetic appearance of the affected tooth.
Composite resins are glass filled plastics that are commonly used as filling materials. Over the years they have become smoother and more color stable. They make good restorations for small to medium size fillings. In larger fillings they can act as a provisional until a more durable restoration can be placed.
Porcelain veneers are custom-made, thin ceramic shells that are bonded directly on the surface of the patient’s teeth. In Santa Rosa, patients of Dr. Harry Albers prefer the use of porcelain veneers because they are very natural looking and, at the same time, are able to offer a great option for restoring teeth that are otherwise chipped, cracked, or uneven.
