We emphasize the aesthetic aspect at our dental practice because we know that when your smile looks good, you feel good! We use the best combination of preventive care, tooth-colored fillings, and restorative techniques for optimum dental health. The smile makeovers of today are so easy (and affordable!) that there’s simply no reason you can’t have the perfectly beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve been wanting. Ask us what crowns, bonding, and whitening can do to transform your smile!
For some patients who have more than one missing tooth, a bridge may be a suitable option. Custom made with the same high-quality materials, a bridge is anchored on both sides with crowns and fills the space for a return to function and comfort, as well as a full smile.
Crowns are sometimes necessary to save a broken or worn-down tooth when a basic filling can’t restore it to full functionality. A crown will save and even strengthen the damaged tooth. We use the most advanced materials to construct your crown. It looks so natural, you won’t be able to distinguish it from a real tooth.
The only way to get your teeth their whitest is by using professional-strength whitening. We are excited to offer Opalescence Go™ whitening, and our patients are experiencing excellent results! This whitening system consists of prefilled Ultrafit™ trays that conform to your teeth for a perfect fit. No messy impressions required! You can achieve dramatic whitening in just 15 minutes each day! The combination of ingredients lowers sensitivity and can even help to improve the overall health of your teeth.
If you have misshapen teeth, unsightly gaps, or deep discoloration, our direct resin veneers might be the solution. They can be applied to a tooth in order to conceal a chip or crack, cover discoloration, or reshape worn or misshapen teeth. The veneer is made to match the color of the surrounding teeth and looks just like natural teeth.
Over the years, silver-mercury amalgam has been the standard filling material used in dental practices, and many practices still use it. While they are an acceptable restoration, amalgams have certain shortcomings. Metal does not bond well to teeth, so decay can and does eventually leak into teeth. But the primary reason many of our patients are choosing white bonded fillings has to do with their natural appearance. Many people just don’t want an ugly black plug in their teeth. We offer modern restorations that are a natural-looking white, contain no metals, and can even strengthen teeth. They also bond very securely with the healthy part of the tooth so there is much less chance of future decay.
Oral health can have a big impact on someone’s life beyond what regular cleanings and the occasional filling can address. Many patients who have lived with injury, illness, bite problems, and simple wear and tear can have chronic problems that they don’t even realize originated in the mouth. Bruxism (tooth grinding), TMJ, periodontitis, crooked or misshapen teeth, and missing teeth can combine to create headaches and migraines, toothaches, chronic bad breath, and an unattractive smile. But you don’t have to live like that anymore.
The doctor will discuss your concerns, symptoms, and goals. After taking digital X-rays, photos, and imprints of your mouth, we will present options for a treatment plan to address these issues and achieve a healthy, pain-free, beautiful smile. We can also talk about phased treatment and financial planning that will help put your dream smile within reach.
