We do Invisalign! Wanting to get those teeth straight without the hassle of braces? You can! Invisalign treatment provides beautiful, straight teeth using a series of virtually invisible, removable and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after. Invisalign clear aligners are made with 3D computer imaging technology and have been proven effective.
Not only are the aligners virtually invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are no problem. They are also more comfortable than traditional braces, with no metal or wires.
How does it work?
You wear each set of aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move — little by little, week by week — until they have straightened to their final positions. You'll visit Dr. Graham about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages nine to 15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.

Want a whiter, brighter smile? At Lake Park Dental, we have two solutions for you!
In-Office Teeth Whitening
During an appointment, Dr. Graham will apply a whitening gel to the surface of your teeth. The entire office visit generally takes about 40 minutes, and is accelerated by our state-of-the-art laser. Results will be seen immediately. You will also be given at-home touch-up whitening strips to take with you.
Teeth Whitening Strips
Teeth whitening strips are thin, flexible plastic (polyethylene) strips with a thin film of hydrogen peroxide on one side. Whitening strip kits come with strips for the upper teeth and strips for the lower teeth. The whitening agent is applied by placing the strips across your teeth and gently pressing the strips to ensure contact with all your teeth. Teeth-whitening strips are typically worn for 2-8 hours per day and can be worn overnight.

The whiteness of your smile is affected by many factors, including dietary habits (drinking coffee, tea, soda, and red wine) and certain medications. Tooth whitening is an affordable and effective way to combat common causes of tooth discoloration while boosting your self-confidence and improving your appearance.
Opalescence offers a wide range of tooth whitening products designed to brighten your smile. With custom designed take-home, on-the-go and in-office options, Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems accommodate all lifestyles and budgets.
Prescription-strength Opalescence Tooth Whitening Systems are stronger and more effective than over-the-counter teeth whitening products, and are only available through a dentist.
Want to get more confidence in your smile with the Opalescence Tooth Whitening System? Call Lake Park Dental today.
You no longer need to hide your smile because of gaps, chips, stains or misshapen teeth. With dental veneers, you can easily correct your teeth’s imperfections to help you have a more confident, beautiful smile. Veneers are natural in appearance, and they are a perfect option for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials that are designed to cover the front side of your teeth. To make your veneers, Dr. Graham will create a unique model of your teeth which is sent to a dental lab. Once your veneers are fabricated, they are placed —you’ll be pleased to see that they look like your natural teeth! While veneers are stain-resistant, your doctor may recommend that you avoid coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco to maintain the beauty of your new smile.

One of the most conservative ways to repair slightly-chipped, discolored or crooked teeth is through bonding. Bonding is a relatively smooth procedure and is performed by Dr. Graham with a gentle touch.
Bonding consists of placing a tooth-colored filling on your tooth to improve its appearance. The filling then "bonds" with your teeth, matching the appearance of your natural teeth.
Bonding is also used in place of regular amalgam fillings because its color is much less noticeable than the silver of the amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth, depending on the location and extent of tooth decay.
Bonding is less expensive than other cosmetic treatments and can usually be completed in one visit to our office.
If you have questions if bonding is right for you please contact us at (414) 963-9440.
