Dr. Wolfson is a general dentist with training in Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is an amazing teeth-straightening option for people who don’t want the inconvenience or unsightliness of traditional braces. Utilizing nearly invisible plastic aligners, the Invisalign system discreetly moves teeth into proper alignment over the course of a few months. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners every few weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.
Invisalign clear aligners can remedy many orthodontic issues without the inconvenience of brackets and wires. Invisalign can be used to fix:
Patients also love Invisalign because the aligners are removable. Whenever you need to eat, drink, or brush and floss your teeth, simply remove your aligner. No worries about limiting certain foods, or tricky hygiene practices—with Invisalign you have the freedom to do whatever you want, without inhibition.
Choosing to straighten your teeth is a big decision that affects not only your appearance, but your lifestyle as well. As an adult, you may be looking for the best way to straighten your teeth without braces, to improve your smile for business and social reasons, or even for a special occasion like your wedding day. Or perhaps you’re a teen or the parent of a teen looking for an effective yet modern-day solution. Either way, Invisalign and Invisalign Teen can provide a simple way to accomplish this without having to put your life on hold. Take a moment to learn more about the entire Invisalign treatment process and how it can help you.

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made and bonded to the front of teeth to create a beautiful smile. Patients love veneers for their ability to completely reshape your teeth and smile. If you are uncomfortable with crooked teeth, misshapen teeth, discolored teeth, uneven teeth or chipped teeth, veneers may be an ideal solution.
Getting veneers usually requires two visits to complete the process, with little or no anesthesia required. Your teeth are prepared by lightly buffing and shaping the surface to allow for the thickness of the veneer. A mold or impression of the teeth is taken and a shade (color) will then be chosen by you and Dr. Wolfson. On the second visit your teeth will be cleansed with special liquids to achieve a durable bond. Bonding cement is then placed between the tooth and veneer and a special light is used to harden and set the bond.
You will receive care instructions for veneers. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new veneers.

Improving the whiteness of the teeth is one of the most requested cosmetic procedures. Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the beauty of your smile.

Hamilton Family Dentistry offers several options for teeth whitening depending on your goals.
If you are looking for an in-office teeth whitening experience, Glo professional whitening is a fast, effective, and safe way to whiten your teeth. Results from professional treatments can be immediate (up to 8 shades whiter in 45 minutes). An in-office procedure usually takes an hour. We will prepare your teeth and apply a special gel. Once applied we will use a special light to activate the whitening gel. After 45 minutes you will have noticeably whiter teeth!
If you prefer an at-home teeth whitening experience, we also offer custom bleaching trays with professional strength whitening solution for at-home treatment. To customize your whitening experience for maximum results you will come in for two appointments. The first will be to take molds for your custom bleaching trays. Once they are ready for wear, you take the trays and gel home. Treatment differs depending on your goals, but the trays are typically worn twice a day for 30 minutes or overnight, depending on the specific directions from the Doctor.
