Our dental treatments are designed to meet your individual dental needs. We will work with you to ensure your understanding of your dental health and treatment options while providing for your comfort and safety.
We have a commitment to our patients to evaluate new technology and the latest procedures to meet their ever-changing needs. Digital radiography is an important part of our treatment, allowing us to diagnose with lower levels of radiation. Intraoral cameras and Dental Microscope provide our patients with clear images of their teeth on a computer screen right in front of them so that they can see their actual dental condition for themselves and have a better understanding of our findings and recommendations. Our General and Cosmetic Dentistry are designed for patients with an emphasis on making you comfortable.
A crown is a restoration that covers, or caps a tooth to restore it to its normal shape and size. Its purpose is to strengthen or improve the appearance of the tooth. A crown is placed for a number of reasons: to support a tooth after a large filling is removed; to attach a bridge; to protect weak teeth from fracture or if badly shaped; to support a root canaled tooth and/or cover an implant. Crowns can be made from gold, all-porcelain (ceramic) dental materials and porcelain fused to gold. Porcelain restorations are particularly desirable because their color and translucency mimic natural tooth enamel.
Veneers are an effective alternative to more invasive procedures like crowns and orthodonture. For this reason, porcelain veneers can be an excellent choice for patients who would like to improve the overall appearance of their smile or to correct misaligned or damaged teeth. A veneer is a very thin shell of porcelain that can replace or cover part of the enamel of the tooth. Porcelain veneers can cover anything from slight imperfections of teeth to permanent stains from coffee, cigarettes or even tetracycline stains.
A bridge (also called a fixed partial denture) is a restoration which replaces the space where one or more teeth have been lost. A bridge is bonded into place and is not removed. Your appearance, dental health and proper functioning of your mouth are all important reasons for wearing a bridge. A bridge helps to maintain the natural shape of your face and may help support your lips and cheeks. More importantly, your dental health may suffer when missing teeth are not replaced.
Implants and Implant-Supported Restorations
Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums during a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture. Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and the secure fit helps replacement teeth feel more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
Tooth Colored Filling Materials
Our office uses composite, tooth colored filling materials. Composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium that produces a tooth-colored filling. Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid size restorations that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is removed when the dentist prepares the tooth, and this may result in a smaller filling than that of an amalgam. Composites are "bonded" or adhesively held in a cavity, often allowing a more conservative repair to the tooth.
Imagine having a whiter smile!
We offer a professional home whitening system where we create custom whitening trays made to precisely fit over your teeth. Depending on the strength of whitening gel you choose (20% or 35% peroxide), the whitening process can take 1-2 weeks. This method is faster and stronger than over-the-counter products, especially for those patients who have significant staining on their teeth.
Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures and partial dentures are substitutes for missing teeth. Dentures and partials that fit properly can improve your appearance, eating and speaking. The good news is that, with regular professional care, you can become one of the millions of people who wear dentures successfully. The restoration can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth. Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework.
There are various types of complete dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. We take measurements and make models of the patient’s jaws during a preliminary visit. With immediate dentures, the patient does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
