At Dr. Andrew Biggs' office, we use teeth whitening to make our Spokane-area patients appear younger and more vibrant, empowering them with a renewed sense of self-confidence. There are a number of factors that can leave a person's teeth stained or discolored. Coffee, tea, dark sodas, tobacco, certain illnesses, and even the natural aging process can mar the appearance of teeth, making them appear yellow or unclean. Luckily for our patients, recent advances in dental technology have led the way to teeth whitening systems that are fast and capable of producing dazzling results.
Dr. Biggs is pleased to offer customized at-home teeth whitening to our Spokane-area patients as a highly effective, safe, and convenient way to enhance the appearance of the smile. Our teeth whitening kits include custom trays that fit over the patient's top and bottom teeth. Patients simply apply a specially formulated whitening gel to the comfortable trays, then wear them overnight or for just a few hours each day. In just a few weeks, teeth will appear dramatically whiter, empowering the patient with a healthier and more youthful overall appearance. If you are tired of having tarnished, discolored teeth, contact Dr. Andrew Biggs today to learn more about your teeth whitening options at his Spokane practice.
Porcelain veneers offer our patients on Spokane's Northside the opportunity to mask a number of dental imperfections in as few as two office visits. Veneers are thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that are fitted directly over the teeth. They can be used to hide stains, chips, and cracks. Porcelain veneers can even be used as "instant orthodontics", giving the appearance of alignment to teeth that are crooked or misshapen, or closing gaps between teeth.
During your first appointment for receiving porcelain veneers at our Spokane office, Dr. Andrew Biggs will prepare your teeth by gently filing down the surface so that the veneers will fit you properly. He will then take an impression of your mouth, which will be used to custom craft your veneers out of high-quality, durable porcelain. Once the veneers are ready, you will return to Dr. Biggs' office to have them fitted snugly over your natural teeth and bonded permanently into place. Porcelain veneers are stain-resistant, and with proper care they can beautify your smile for years to come. If you are curious about how Dr. Biggs can use porcelain veneers at his Spokane office to perfect your smile, contact us today to schedule an informational consultation.
Many of our adult patients are unhappy with the alignment of their teeth but are hesitant to undergo orthodontic treatment because of the discomfort and aesthetic issues associated with metal or ceramic braces. That is why Dr. Andrew Biggs is pleased to offer Invisalign® invisible braces to his Spokane-area patients who would like straighter teeth, but do not want to wear traditional braces. The Invisalign® system works by using a series of transparent plastic aligners that are computer-customized to gently and gradually move your teeth into place. Each plastic mold is worn for two weeks, and removed only for eating, drinking and cleaning. After two weeks, the mold is replaced with a new aligner, which moves the teeth a bit closer to their desired positions. The number of molds needed to straighten a particular patient's teeth varies, but the average is often between 18 and 30 molds. The treatment time, meanwhile, is comparable to that required by traditional metal or ceramic braces.
With Invisalign®, our patients can carry on with life while they gradually work towards a beautiful, even smile. If you would like to learn more about receiving orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® in the Spokane area, please contact Dr. Andrew Biggs.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a quick and painless way to repair cracks, chips and other types of superficial damage to the teeth. Dental bonding uses a composite material that Dr. Biggs selects to match the color of the patient's natural teeth. Dr. Biggs then lightly scuffs the surface of the teeth to be bonded and paints on the composite resin. The resin is next hand-shaped to mask imperfections and fit in with surrounding teeth before being hardened with a powerful light. Though the resin is not as durable as porcelain veneers, with proper maintenance our Spokane-area patients can enjoy the aesthetic effects of cosmetic dental bonding for years to come.
For patients who wish to undergo a more dramatic smile transformation, Dr. Biggs and his highly skilled team are able to combine a number of cosmetic procedures to perform a complete smile makeover. These customized plans allow you to straighten your smile with Invisalign® invisible braces, mask any imperfections with porcelain veneers or bonding, and even brighten your smile with at-home teeth whitening, all in just a few comfortable visits to our Spokane office! Dr. Biggs can even use digital dental imaging to give you a preview of how incredible your smile can look!
At the office of Dr. Andrew Biggs, we understand that many patients are prevented from making cosmetic enhancements to their smiles by dental anxiety or by financial constraints. We firmly believe that every patient should have the very finest dental care available, and will do whatever is within our means to ensure that your dream smile becomes a reality. For patients who wish to undergo a smile makeover but who suffer from dental anxiety, Dr. Biggs is pleased to offer profound anesthesia with septocaine, which is much more effective than traditional novocaine. To ease our patient's financial worries, Dr. Biggs accepts most insurance plans common in the area and offers patient-friendly financing options. With modern pain management techniques, accessible financing options, and the gentle yet artistic touch of Dr. Biggs, it is now easier than ever to achieve the dazzling smile you deserve!
