Make misshaped teeth a thing of the past with our bonding procedure. We bond or glue the tooth-colored filling material to teeth to re-contour or reshape them, close gaps and spaces, cover dark, discolored teeth, or restore broken teeth. If a tooth is too severely broken down it may need to have a crown.
A dental crown is a tooth restoration used to save a tooth that's badly broken down. The process is simple. Using porcelain fused to metal crowns, or the newer metal free zirconia or lithium disilicate crowns, we cover the tooth to prevent further damage. They are truly beautiful and strong, and can be bonded or glued to the teeth.
Root Canal Treatment
Many times even a badly broken down tooth can be saved by doing a root canal. This is the procedure where the infected pulp of the tooth is removed, and the root is disinfected and sealed. Due to advances in dental techniques and equipment, especially the rotary systems, root canals are faster and easier than ever before. While they are still no fun, they are surprisingly pain free.
Don't let stains or discolored teeth prevent you from showing off an award-winning smile. Instead, visit our office, and we'll create custom bleaching trays, an at-home cosmetic dental procedure that gives you brighter, whiter teeth in a few weeks. Or if you prefer, we have Crest White Strips Professional Supreme available for purchase.
Missing teeth can make anyone feel self-conscious about their smile. Dental implants are the perfect way to replace missing teeth, while giving you natural-looking teeth. We work with reputable implant placement specialists who are ready to give you the results you desire. The specialists place one or more implants into the jawbone, then we can attach an artificial tooth to the implant. Implants can also be used to anchor a loose lower denture and this can make a huge improvement in comfort and chewing ability.
Good fitting dentures let you smile, talk, and chew again. We use only high quality materials such as Bioform IPN™ teeth and Lucitone199™ acrylic. Attention to detail and the artistry of the technician result in a superior product. And remember, nothing lasts forever. Eventually your dentures need to be replaced. Don't hang on to 15 or 20 year old dentures, get some new ones.
Many simple denture repairs can be done on our premises to get you back together quickly. Even the best dentures need to be relined periodically as your mouth changes. Relining can make them fit like new again, and we can do that too.
Partials have come a long way. In the old days you could get a cast metal partial to replace one or more teeth. Cast metal partials, which clasp onto your other teeth, work well in many cases. But now there are new flexible partials available that have no metal. These are very comfortable and can be the perfect solution for giving you natural-looking teeth.
