Cosmetic Dentistry Services
Here are just three of the cosmetic dental treatments that Dr. Kalina frequently uses to change how smile look.
Invisalign clear aligners This ultra-modern orthodontic system uses a series of clear acrylic aligners to shift crooked teeth into healthier and more attractive positions. Smooth, comfortable and removable, Invisalign appliances treat crowding, overbite, tooth rotation and other mild to moderate orthodontic issues in an average of one year. Invisalign is popular with teens and adults who want a better smile without the discomforts and “metal mouth” look of traditional braces.
Porcelain veneers in Mankato These customized thin shells of translucent ceramic cover dental defects such as chips, deep stains, cracks, gaps and more. Dr. Kalina places them on the front side of marred teeth for a look that is dramatically refreshed. A permanent refurbishment, porcelain veneers stay in place and look great for years with routine oral care at home and at the dental office.
E4D same-day crowns, inlays, and onlays combine the best of cosmetic and restorative dentistry. These beautiful porcelain restorations cover and protect decayed or damaged teeth without dark metal or amalgam. Plus, they look natural and blend right in with the rest of your smile.
