Providing the quickest way to a stunning smile, veneers are custom-designed semi-translucent covers for your teeth. These ultra-thin covers are bonded to the front of the teeth to dramatically improve teeth color, size, and shape. In two short visits, patients experience a remarkable transformation from their former smile to a brand new one. Beyond the cosmetic benefits of veneers, they are typically used to effectively treat discolored, worn, chipped, broken, misaligned teeth or teeth with gaps. For a fresh, natural looking smile, ask us if veneers are a solution for you.
If you have a decayed, damaged, cracked, or missing tooth, a dental crown or bridge may be the solution. Dental crowns are designed to be a permanent covering, fitting over a damaged tooth. This covering restores the tooth to its natural shape and size while improving the strength and overall appearance of the affected tooth. A dental bridge is a custom device designed to fill a space previously occupied by a tooth. Dental bridges consist of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap with a replacement tooth in the middle. Crowns and dental bridges are made with natural-looking porcelain, improving the overall appearance of your smile.
Dental implants are the best long-term tooth replacement option using a titanium post and a custom-made crown to give it the appearance of your natural tooth. They can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. With the highest success rate of all tooth replacement options, implants can last a lifetime with daily brushing and flossing.
A whiter and brighter smile can have a very noticeable effect on your overall appearance, presentation and personal confidence. Using modern techniques, the path to a whiter smile is simpler and quicker than ever, with virtually no sensitivity.
Metal amalgam fillings are obsolete. Today’s tooth-colored composites are safer, stronger, more attractive and more enduring choices than metal. Composites are hard plastic that are bonded to the tooth. In addition, they are more conservative restorations by requiring less drilling of healthy tooth structure.
Amalgams expand and contract when exposed to temperature changes; this movement weakens the tooth wall and can cause fractures. It also allows bacteria to enter and cause decay. Amalgam also contains mercury, a toxic element. Current literature is unclear as to the amount of mercury that is released from amalgams and the long-term effects on health.
