While Dr. Mastour’s practice encompasses all aspects of general dentistry, he especially enjoys the area of cosmetic dentistry, utilizing such tools as Veneers and Invisalign, to bring each patient a perfect smile.
By using Invisalign Dr. Mastour uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit the patient. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition the teeth into the perfect smile. There are no metal wires or bands to irritate the mouth, and best of all they are almost invisible. His beautifully crafted Porcelain Veneers are the perfect alternative to orthodontic treatment and offer instant results. Veneers are a wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front side of teeth so to create a cosmetic improvement for a tooth. They are the quick and painless way to fix crooked teeth, whiten them, close spaces, and create a great smile.
