  • Veneers/Lumineers - Thin, porcelain "facings" that are bonded to the front of the teeth to correct crooked teeth, hide dark stains or ugly fillings, and correct broken teeth. Veneers are a very conservative way to get that dazzling smile you've always
    wanted!
  • Smile Sculpting - By simply polishing and reshaping chipped, rough, or uneven edges of the front teeth we can dramatically enhance your smile. One short appointment, NO SHOT!!
  • InvisalignMTM - By wearing thin, custom retainers we can correct poorly aligned teeth or straighten that one crooked tooth that drives you crazy!
  • Zirconium Crowns - The newest, strongest and most life-like restoration to fix broken teeth. Porcelain crowns have no metal so you won't get that ugly, "dark line" around the gums often seen in older crowns.
  • Composite Fillings - Replace those old, ugly gray fillings with white, tooth colored composite fillings. If your tooth needs a filling why not have it look like the natural tooth!
  • Zoom Bleaching - The easiest way to put the "wow" back into your smile. One appointment, simple and effective!

IMPLANTS

Before development of dental implants, dentures were the only alternative to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures. Implants are so well-designed, they mimic the look and feel of natural teeth. Implants are usually made of a synthetic yet biocompatible material like metal or ceramic.

Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. Diabetics and people with chronic bruxism (teeth clenching) are generally not favorable candidates. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene. In general, good candidates who have dental implants can expect high success rates with the procedure.

Types of implants

  • Full upper replacements: The upper set of teeth is replaced with implants.
  • Anterior replacement: Implants are used to replace the front teeth (also called incisors and cupids).
  • Full lower replacement: The lower set of teeth is replaced with implants. Full lower replacement usually only uses six implants (near the front), which are used to anchor a denture. This eliminates the need for denture adhesive.
  • Posterior replacement: Implants are used to replace the bicuspids and molars (the back teeth).
  • Single tooth replacement

Steps for these procedures include:

  • Missing tooth roots are replaced with implants, which are covered under the gum line.
  • A healing period of six months allows implants to take.
  • The implants are uncovered and extensions attached.
  • Replacement teeth are affixed to the implants and extensions.

CROWNS

Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth. They are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, or an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated. Crowns also serve a cosmetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance.

Procedure
A tooth must usually be reduced in size to accommodate a crown. A cast is made of the existing tooth and an impression is made. The impression is sent to a special lab, which manufactures a custom-designed crown. In some cases, a temporary crown is applied until the permanent crown is ready. Permanent crowns are cemented in place.

VENEERS

In just two or three dental visits, a veneer can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use. Special thin laminates, called veneers, can also be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth. Stronger types of veneers made of porcelain, also called composite veneers, typically last longer because they are bonded to the tooth.

An impression of the tooth must be made and a veneer molded by a lab technician. Because veneers require a small amount of enamel to be removed, they are permanent and non-reversible.

The process involves buffing the tooth, removing an extremely thin layer of the tooth to allow for the thickness of the veneer, an impression of the tooth, and final bonding of the veneer to the tooth with special cement. A special light is used to complete the process.

ZOOM Whitening

Professionally monitored bleaching performed by our office is considered to be the most effective and safest method available. Over-The-Counter methods are not as effective nor as comfortable. We have brightened the smiles of thousands of patients and have years of experience in whitening smiles. We have two methods to bleach teeth. The most common is our “ZOOM” whitening procedure where the patient’s smile is enhanced in one appointment! With our “Take Home Option,” the patient wears a thin retainer-type appliance which holds the bleaching solution against the teeth while they sleep. If time has taken its toll on that once dazzling smile contact us to set up a free consultation appointment to see if bleaching is right for you!
