If Porcelain Dolls are Fragile, Why are Porcelain Restorations Durable?

June 13, 2018

several porcelain restorations on tabletopBefore you get started with a cosmetic or restorative dentistry plan that includes dental porcelain, you may be thinking, “Isn’t porcelain fragile?” The answer is, “Yes and no.” While a porcelain doll or a porcelain glass may be fragile, a porcelain knife is strong and so are porcelain restorations. The key is using the highest grade porcelain and cementing it into position properly, so the underlying tooth structures provide support and strength. In fact, porcelain veneers, crowns, bridges, and other restorations are just as strong if not stronger than your healthy tooth enamel, and they can be shaded to perfectly match these natural structures.

Smile Big Without the Embarrassment of Missing Teeth

August 17, 2015

Dental implants can mask the embarrassment of missing teeth.Missing teeth can be a real drag for your mouth. It just feels weird. If you do have missing teeth, you probably find yourself dragging your tongue through the open area where a tooth used to stand. A missing tooth is nothing new for our office. We’ve treated many patients who’ve dealt with missing teeth throughout their lives. We hear the same thing from our patients regarding missing teeth and how it keeps them from smiling. This is simply no way to live. Smiling, just like laughing, is highly contagious. We understand why anyone with missing teeth would want to hide their smile, but there are ways to bring that same smile to full beauty.

Dental implants are excellent choices for patients that are suffering with missing teeth. It isn’t just the appearance of your smile that is at risk, your oral health is, too. Open spaces can lure bacteria in and keep it there for a long time. The longer bacteria sticks around, the greater a chance of an infection. Our office in Hillsboro, OR offers dental implants for all patients that want to do something about their missing-tooth problem. It’s tooth replacement Hillsboro residents can receive for their missing teeth.

Restorative Dentistry that Looks Cosmetic

Some dental practices view restorative dentistry as simply restoring the function of your teeth. The Dentists at Oreco Station thinks your smile is not restored until it looks great too. We have numerous restorative dentistry services that will leave you with a beautiful, natural looking and feeling smile. For chips, cracks, breaks, and lost teeth, our all porcelain crowns will put the smile back on your face.

Porcelain Crowns

If you’ve ever seen a person with a metal crown, you may be thinking, “I’d rather stick with this crack in my tooth.” Fortunately for you, advances in dental technology make it possible for you to have a tooth that looks just like the original. Thanks to all porcelain crowns from the Dentists of Orenco Station, you and your dentist can be the only ones to know about your crown. A crown is placed on a tooth that has been cracked, chipped or broken so that the remaining tooth can be retained. A crown and bridge are used to fill the gaps between teeth when a tooth has been lost. This customized replacement helps your mouth retain its structure and looks great too.

All porcelain crowns look great, but they take more time than traditional metallic crowns and are less durable. The advantages definitely outweigh these minor inconveniences. With all porcelain crowns, your tooth will look just like the originally. Porcelain is a hypo-allergenic option for patients with metal allergies. You dentist can realign and correct the form of these caps after placing them for a perfect fit. Because they take up less space than thicker metallic crowns, they are best suited for patients with minimal spacing between teeth.

Ready to Let Us Crown You?

Our dental experts will restore your tooth to its natural beauty with all-porcelain crowns that look and feel great. Call to schedule an appointment today in Hillsboro, OR.

April 17, 2015

487780771Everyone wants straight, healthy teeth and a confident smile that they’re proud to share with the world.

If you are one of the millions of teens and adults who longs for a more balanced smile without metal brackets and wires, The Dentists at Orenco Station want to help. Our Hillsboro, OR dental office happily offers an alternative to traditional orthodontics: ClearCorrect clear braces.

With clear plastic aligners, no one has to know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment except for you and your dentist.

In addition to their cosmetic advantages, clear braces are vastly more comfortable than traditional braces. You won’t have to worry about a broken wire or bracket poking your lip or cheek lining. Instead, enjoy the smooth contours of your custom aligners.

Because your ClearCorrect clear braces are easy to remove, there are no dietary restrictions associated with treatment. Continue to enjoy your favorite foods throughout the duration of your treatment. Your teeth are also much easier to clean with clear aligners than they are with metal braces. Simply brush and floss as you normally would and replace your aligners when you’re finished.

Reliable Teeth Whitening Solutions from Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey in Hillsboro, OR

March 17, 2015

166637352Do you have tooth discoloration concerns? If so, you’re not alone. Teeth whitening is actually the most common cosmetic dentistry procedure. Our teeth may start out bright and white, but over the years our natural enamel can wear down, becoming more transparent and permitting the naturally yellow dentin of the inner tooth to show through. Our teeth can also stain from commonly consumed beverages like coffee, tea, soda, and wine. If you want to tackle your tooth discoloration for good, schedule a teeth whitening appointment with Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey today. The Dentists at Orenco Station are highly skilled cosmetic dentistry specialists, now proudly restoring smiles daily throughout Hillsboro, OR, Forest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, Rock Creek, and the surrounding communities.

Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening

There are many over-the-counter teeth whitening products available today, but they all have trouble fulfilling their teeth whitening promises. Teeth whitening toothpastes don’t contain the bleaching agents necessary to whiten your teeth. Other products, like whitening gels, strips, and rinses offer only diluted bleaching power. As such, it can take several weeks of daily use before you seen any significant improvement in the color of your teeth.

In- Office Teeth Whitening

For a truly reliable teeth whitening solution, we offer professional in-office whitening treatment that can be completed in under an hour. You can walk in on your lunch break, and walk out with a dazzling new smile.

Take Home Teeth Whitening

We also offer a convenient take home whitening solution with the KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System. The KöR Whitening Deep Bleaching System is unique in that it increases your teeth’s ability to absorb oxygen, and this oxygen actually dissolves stains. Take home teeth whitening comes with fully customized bleaching trays and professional strength whitening gel which can effortlessly whiten your teeth while you sleep, and typically takes about two weeks to complete.

Hillsboro Teeth Whitening Appointments

Whether you prefer our chairside teeth whitening option, or our convenient take home solution, you will receive the whitening power you expect and deserve. Finally fulfill your bright smile wishes and schedule a teeth whitening appointment with Drs. Brandon and Malinda Kearbey today. The Dentists at Orenco Station are trusted cosmetic dentistry experts, now delivering quality care daily throughout Hillsboro, OR, Forest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, Rock Creek, and the neighboring areas.

Enhance Your Smile with Custom-Made Porcelain Veneers

August 19, 2013

Every patient wants to have a smile they feel confident about. Unfortunately, not everyone is born with a smile that’s naturally straight or white. That’s why Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr.  Malinda Kearbey of The Dentists at Orenco Station offer porcelain veneers.

This cosmetic dentistry service is among the most popular offered today. With a few thin pieces of porcelain, the team at The Dentists of Orenco Station can help you transform a stained, misaligned, chipped, or cracked smile into one that looks naturally dazzling. What’s more, the entire procedure can be completed in just two visits to our Hillsboro dental office.

What to Expect from a Porcelain Veneers Procedure

During the first of your two porcelain veneers visits, your doctor will take molds of your smile. We’ll also talk to you about how you want your smile to look when we’re all done. Then, our lab technicians will take the information we gather during that first appointment and use it to make customized veneers that will match the shade and shape of your natural smile.

On your second appointment, we’ll reveal your finished veneers and affix them to the front of your smile. Then, with your transformed smile in place, you can go back to your normal schedule feeling more confident than maybe you ever have.

Call The Dentists at Orenco Station to ask us a question about porcelain veneers or schedule a consultation appointment. We’re happy to create beautiful smiles for patients of Forest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, Rock Creek, and beyond.

More Discreet Orthodontic Care with ClearCorrect

July 26, 2013

Traditional braces are just one treatment option for patients with misaligned teeth. At The Dentists at Orenco Station, Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey offer ClearCorrect, a special cosmetic braces option that gives adults patients the chance to improve the appearance of their smile without drawing attention to their treatment.

Instead of using metal brackets and wires, ClearCorrect helps you achieve your goal with a set of clear, custom-made aligners. As you go through your treatment, you’ll wear each aligner for about two weeks. With each one, your teeth will be brought closer and closer to their ideal position.

But outside of being clear and not using brackets or wires, there’s another benefit of straightening your smile with ClearCorrect—your aligners are removable. What that means is that you can take them out for meals, but also for brushing and flossing. Because of this, you can enjoy your favorite foods and still brush and floss as thoroughly as you normally would. Brackets and wires can get in the way of caring for your smile, leading to an increased risk of gum disease and tooth decay, which would mean spending more time in the dental chair later on. ClearCorrect lets you eat what you enjoy, care for your smile normally, and instead of coming in to have your braces tightened, we’ll only need to see you every six to eight weeks to check your progress.

Do you have questions about ClearCorrect? Dr. Brandon Kearbey and Dr. Malinda Kearbey would be happy to answer them. Call The Dentists at Orenco Station today to reserve your consultation. We provide general, cosmetic, and restorative to patients from Hillsboro, Forrest Grove, Beaverton, Cornelius, and Rock Creek.
