A crown is a covering that fits over an original tooth that is decayed, damaged or cracked. Crowns are made of a variety of materials such as porcelain, gold, or acrylic resin; porcelain generally has the most natural appearance. Crowns are cemented in place for strength and longevity.
A bridge is a dental restoration that fills the space between two teeth when a tooth has been extracted or missing. It is made of crowns connected together and it is cemented in place.
The concept of a "filling" is replacing and restoring your tooth structure that is damaged due to decay or fracture. There are two types of filling materials: Amalgam, the silver metallic filling used on the back teeth and composite bonding, a tooth colored filling that adheres to the tooth.
A root canal is a procedure that removes the nerve from the tooth, reshapes the canal and seals it. When tooth decay is deep enough that it weakens the nerve, the tooth my need a root canal. A root canal my save the tooth from extraction.
Implants are titanium posts imbedded beneath the gum and screwed into the bone in the places where teeth were extracted or missing. Implants can be used to anchor partials, dentures, crowns, or bridges.
Veneers are thin, semi-translucent "shells" typically attached to your front teeth. They are customized from porcelain material and permanently bonded to your teeth. Veneers are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.
Your teeth will darken over time. Changes in the color of your teeth can be caused by such factors as food and beverages consumed (like coffee, tea and soda). Other known factors for discoloration may include childhood medications or illnesses, tobacco use or improper oral hygiene. Restoring your naturally white smile is a priority for our dental whitening team. With tooth whitening services growing in popularity, we can provide a variety of options for whitening your smile. Everyone sees the growing consumer market focused on whiter teeth. The reality is that over-the-counter, "too good to be true", solutions typically don't work.
We are trained professionals using industry-approved methods. Our goal is to meet everyone's specific needs. The process used by our practice is a gentle hydrogen-peroxide gel-activated solution used in custom-fitted trays over a specific time period.
Periodontal disease, injury and tooth decay can all cause a loss of your natural teeth. We can, however, bring back your smile with dentures or partial dentures to restore your missing teeth. With improved technology and updated materials, dentists can now make them appear more natural and more comfortable.
There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures cover the patient's entire jaw while partial dentures replace multiple missing teeth, but anchor your remaining teeth. Ask the doctor to see which type would be right for you. It may take some time to adjust to your dentures. Speaking and eating may feel different at first, but these regular activities will resume normally once you are accustomed to your new teeth!
