Composite Resin Veneers
Like all veneers, composite resin veneers are used to improve the overall appearance of teeth by changing their shape and color. Composite veneers are used to treat multiple cosmetic dental issues including things like stained teeth, crooked teeth, chipped or cracked teeth or to fill in gaps between existing teeth.
While other types of veneers can require multiple visits to the dentist and usually involve some drilling or reshaping of existing teeth, composites usually require little to no tooth reduction during the treatment process. The composite material is usually applied to the outer surface of the tooth and molded into shape by the dentist, making it a fairly quick but effective treatment.
While composite veneers don’t tend to last as long as porcelain veneers and don’t have quite the same transformative impact, they can be a great way of transforming a smile for far less of an investment. It’s the best way of fixing minor cosmetic damage to teeth and can be used to fix a wide range of dental issues.

Invisalign: An Advanced Solution
Invisalign is a revolutionary advancement for patients who want to align crooked or crowded teeth without the all of the problems associated with traditional metal braces. Using a series of thin, transparent, custom-made aligners, the treatment is virtually invisible, yet able to steadily shift your teeth into the correct position. Before beginning your treatment at Smiles on Beach Boulevard in Jacksonville, Florida, our dentist will work with you to create a treatment plan that meets your unique needs and alignment goals.
Evaluation for Treatment
As Invisalign doesn't work for every situation, our dentist must first conduct an oral evaluation to determine if you qualify for the treatment.
Creating a Treatment Plan
If Invisalign is determined to be an effective fit for you, our dentist will begin customizing your treatment plan. This process involves creating comprehensive 3D digital images of your teeth, or you can choose to utilize traditional dental impressions. If you decide to opt for 3D imaging, the iTero digital scanning system will provide you with virtual results that show the exact movements your teeth need to make as well as a preview of the expected outcome.
Obtaining Your Invisalign Aligners
The Invisalign treatment consists of a set of transparent aligners. They are typically made of a BPA-free, SmartTrack material, and can be removed easily, making it extremely convenient to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.
Although Invisalign aligners are removable, our dentist will recommend wearing them the majority of the day and night. Additionally, they will be replaced by our dentist weekly or twice per month, depending on your specific case. Such frequent replacements are necessary to achieve the perfect alignment.
Proper Care During and After Treatment
Our dentist will provide you with useful instructions and recommendations on how to safely clean and care for your aligners. After eating, be sure to brush your teeth as well as your aligners before placing them back in the mouth. This process will reduce the risk of bacteria growth. After you have completed your Invisalign treatment, our dentist will most likely recommend wearing a retainer to stabilize your teeth in their new position.
Credit and Payment
Our office accepts a variety of payment options for our Invisalign procedure, including Care Credit. Speak with a member of our team to learn more about your options.
