Achieve your most beautiful and healthy smile.
Never underestimate the power of a beautiful smile. If you’re less than satisfied with your teeth, you can stop feeling embarrassed and start feeling more confident through cosmetic dentistry at Orchard Dental Group. It’s not vanity. When you feel good about your smile, it affects the way you face the world.
Safe, easy and effective
Whitening is the cosmetic service that is most frequently requested by our patients. It’s not surprising. A whiter smile is probably the easiest and most cost-effective way to improve the way your smile looks. Still, you may have questions about which methods are most effective, and whether or not there are any risks involved—like sensitivity or enamel damage. Today there are many different whitening methods and materials available. Orchard dentists will help you move confidently forward toward a whiter smile using one of these safe and effective methods:
- Over-the-counter products
- Professionally-supervised, at-home whitening
- In-office, professional “power whitening”
Teeth Replacement with Implants
the next best thing to the actual tooth
The bad news: you have missing teeth. The good news: dental implants have revolutionized tooth replacement. Implants are better than ever, whether you need to replace a single tooth or a group of teeth. At Orchard, our dentists have been performing implant restorations for over 20 years. The results can be truly life changing. It’s the next best thing to having your own teeth.
Teeth Replacement with Bridges and Dentures
cost effective, non-intrusive
As good as they are, implants aren’t always the best solution. In some cases, conventional bridges or dentures may be your best option. Based on a thorough evaluation, Orchard dentists will assess your situation, discuss the options with you, and then we will decide how to proceed with your treatment—together.
natural-looking with no harmful metals
Many dentists still use silver-metallic fillings. (We find it hard to believe!) Orchard Dental Group has placed only mercury-free, tooth-colored fillings for over 25 years. Materials and techniques have come a long way, and today’s non-metallic fillings are more durable and predictable than the old-school silver metallics. Tooth-colored fillings look better, last a long time, and reduce exposure to potentially harmful materials.
Re-enameling with Bonding or Veneers
visually improve many types of flaws
Bonding and veneers are conservative, non-intrusive procedures that can beautifully solve an array of aesthetic imperfections: Severe discoloration, unevenness and minor crowding can typically be improved with just a few simple and pain-free visits to Orchard Dental. The end result is a smile that looks healthy and natural—like your own teeth, only better.
the number-one repair for broken teeth and large filling replacements
The crowns of today are not the same as your grandparents’ crowns. Current techniques and materials have eliminated the unnatural-looking, telltale dark slice of gum line that used to be visible around older crowns. Today’s crowns are virtually unnoticeable; as a result, they are also being used to strengthen and reinforce weak front teeth.
get a permanent repair in one visit
If you’ve had a conventional crown placed in the past, then you’re all too familiar with the lengthy and messy process. CEREC® same-day crowns have changed everything. This truly amazing advancement combines computer software and robotic milling hardware that are located right here in the Orchard Dental office. Now we have the ability to computer-design and fabricate tooth-colored ceramic restorations in a single visit! Natural-looking CEREC restorations are becoming the treatment of choice for most large filling replacements and broken teeth.
Dr. Marolt and Dr. Kauls are certified CEREC providers.
tooth straightening without ouchy, ugly wires
Now you can have straighter teeth without braces. Invisalign provides teeth straightening that is removable, virtually invisible and up to 50% faster than traditional braces. Plus, the aligners are constructed of smooth plastic that doesn’t irritate or cause mouth sores like wired braces and other invisible braces that still use brackets. Invisalign effectively treats many different conditions, including crowding, spacing, crossbite, overbite and underbite. It is ideal for adults and teens.
Dr. Bob Marolt and Dr. Perri Kauls are among the select few Certified Invisalign® Preferred Providers in the Twin Cities. They have a high level of experience in treating patients using this system. Call the Orchard Dental office today for a free consultation to determine if Invisalign is right for you.
