Teeth whitening is perhaps one of the most common procedures recommended in cosmetic dentistry. It is a quick and non-invasive treatment that is used to enhance one’s smile. Treatments are convenient, affordable and universally valued by both men and women. We provide great treatments with low costs and great results. That said, teeth whitening treatments are not permanent and require maintenance for a prolonged effect. We also offer take home whitening solutions for those who prefer to do it themselves.
A veneer, a layer of porcelain or composite, is used to fix an injury or improve your smile. It is both a wafer-thin and super strong layer that is placed over the affected tooth or teeth, convincingly substituting for natural tooth enamel that can protect the tooth’s surface from further damage. In regards to a better smile, veneers can help improve the appearance of gapped teeth or teeth that are troublesome to whiten. Once bonded to your teeth, veneers create an aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking new surface. This is due in part to the dental porcelain used. Like natural tooth enamel, it is both translucent and tough. However, it does not stain like natural tooth enamel does.
The remarkably improved dental porcelain technology used today allows veneers to be made so thin they can sometimes be bonded directly onto your existing tooth’s surface. If the affected area has some excess tooth enamel, however, it may need to be removed to fit the new porcelain surface to make it appear as realistic as possible. Either way, we guarantee amazing results with lots of smiling faces!
Inlays and Onlays, also known as indirect fillings, are made from porcelain or composite materials. They are long-lasting and an alluring way to provide a “filling” to teeth experiencing tooth decay or similar structural damage. Inlays and Onlays, are constructed in a dental laboratory before they are fitted and bonded into place by your dentist.
Composite bonding is used to repair and/or correct the appearance of chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth. This procedure uses a dental composite material, similar in appearance to enamel and dentin. It is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of the tooth, sculpted into shape, contoured and finally hardened with a high-intensity light. The resulting restoration blends seamlessly with the remainder of the surrounding tooth structure and the rest of your natural teeth – creating a healthier and brighter smile.
For those who feel self-conscious about tooth loss or irregularities caused by such, dental implants can give them both the confidence needed to smile and talk, and the ability to eat properly – preventing future health problems like malnutrition. Dental implants are synthetic root replacements that can be used to support the restoration process for missing teeth. These artificial roots are put in place to help prevent jaw bone loss. Dental implants are not only effective in preventing further damage to one’s teeth and/or jaw bone, but also help to improve upon one’s smile.
Crowns And Bridges
Dental crowning is a very safe and effective treatment that helps to protect the functionality of teeth. This treatment is a great option for those in need of restoring the functionality of a tooth with excessive decay, a tooth in need of a replacement to a pre-existing crown, or an individual who wants a lifelike replacement for a missing tooth. Custom designed materials such as porcelain, metal, alloy, steel or even gold are used to cover a tooth in need. This process is also referred to as “capping,” which may take two to three visits before a permanent crown is put in place. For those in need of a lifelike tooth replacement, they will need to undergo a bridgework treatment. This treatment opens up space between permanent teeth, and where the missing tooth gap is.
Each bridging process requires at least three crowns, that must be placed on the teeth that lay on either side of the missing teeth. These teeth are referred to as abutment teeth and act as support for the crown that will replace the missing teeth. The length, size, and roots of the abutment teeth, along with the amount of bone support each tooth has, as well as the location of where the missing tooth is in the mouth, are the main factors that come to play when determining the number of abutment teeth required to perform a bridging treatment.
