The Spa Facial ~ Professional Teeth Whitening Cosmetic Procedures

Cosmetic Procedures

Teeth Whitening: Bleaching lightens teeth that have been stained or discolored by age, food, drink, and smoking.  Teeth darkened as a result of injury or taking certain medications can also be bleached, but the effectiveness depends on the degree of staining present.

Composite (tooth-colored) Fillings: Also known as "bonding", composite fillings are now widely used instead of amalgam (silver) fillings to repair teeth with cavities, and also to replace old defective fillings.  Tooth-colored fillings are also used to repair chipped, broken, or discolored teeth.  This type of filling is also very useful to fill in gaps and to protect sensitive, exposed root surfaces caused by gum recession.

Porcelain Veneers: Veneers are thin custom-made, tooth-colored shells that are bonded onto the fronts of teeth to create a beautiful individual smile.  They can help restore or camouflage damaged, discolored, poorly shaped, or misaligned teeth.  Unlike crowns, veneers require minimal tooth structure to be removed from the surface of the tooth.

Porcelain Crowns (caps): A crown is a tooth-colored, custom-made covering that encases the entire tooth surface restoring it to its original shape and size.  Crowns protect and strengthen teeth that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.  They are ideal for teeth that have large, fractured or broken fillings and also for those that are badly decayed.

Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial roots that are surgically placed into the jaw to replace one or more missing teeth.  Porcelain crowns, bridges, and dentures can be made specifically to fit and attach to implants, giving a patient a strong, stable, and durable solution to removable dental appliances.

Orthodontics: Less visible and more effective brackets and wires are making straightening teeth with orthodontics much more appealing to adult patients.  Also, in some cases, teeth may be straightened with custom-made, clear, removable aligners that require no braces.

Thanks to the advances in modern dentistry, cosmetic treatments can make a difference in making your smile shine!

Q: What is FDA's authority over cosmetics?

A: It is very important to understand that Congress passes the laws and govern the United States. To put those laws into effect, Congress authorizes certain government agencies, including the FDA to create and enforce the rules and regulations, but only those as authorized under the law. A change in FDA's statutory authority over cosmetics would require a full congressional vote.

 (It would take an act of Congress)

21 CFR 872.6070 Ultraviolet Activator for Polymerization

Q: Does the FDA regulate the light activator?

A: It is a device that produces ultraviolet light intended to polymerize or take off resinous dental pit and fissure sealants or restorative material by transmission of light through a rod.

The scope of this guidance includes devices that use light sources such as quarts-tungsten-halogen lamps, light emitting diodes (LED's), and xenon-plasma arcs, as well as laser energy sources.

RULE: The FDA guidance does not include heat or light sources intended exclusively for tooth bleaching procedures. These are classified under 2CFR 872.6475, Heat Source for Bleaching Teeth, product code EEG. These devices are exempt from the premarket notification procedures in subpart E of part 807 of this chapter, subject to the limitations of 872.9. (This action being considered cosmetic)
