CROWNS & BRIDGES
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
Cosmetic dentistry is aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and your smile. Most people think of whitening and veneers, but a dentist who enjoys changing a patients smile cosmetically can provide so much more. Insurance does not cover cosmetic dentistry. We have financing available.
A crown is permanently cemented over your existing tooth after it is has been modified. We take the shade of your existing teeth so it matches your new crown. A crown is used in different situations:
- when the cusp of a tooth fractures
- when there is a large existing filling with decay
- after a tooth has had a root canal
- or for cosmetic reasons (straighter teeth, whiter teeth, replace older crowns that are yellow, etc)
A bridge is just like a crown but involves more teeth. It replaces a missing tooth by using two teeth as abutments and one "fake" tooth in between to make it look like there is a tooth there again.
Whitening of Teeth
We have two options for our patients to choose from to whiten their teeth.
Custom Whitening Tray
With the custom trays, you get faster and better results because the whitening gel is stronger and the trays are custom made to fit your teeth.
Sheer White Strips
These are whitening strips, but fit very snug and do not slide around like over the counter ones do. You also only have to whiten for 5 days! They contain a much higher strength of whitening gel than the ones in stores.
This procedure is pain free and requires no injection. It is used to shape the teeth to give them smoother looking edges and to get ride of any extrinsic stains. We carefully smooth out the edges to give them a softer appearance, or it the patient desires a more square look then we do that. In some cases, we do add resin filling material for a better result.
Composite resins, or tooth-colored fillings, provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small- to mid-size fillings that need to withstand moderate pressure from the constant stress of chewing. They can be used on either front or back teeth. They are a good choice for people who prefer that their fillings look more natural.
They can also be used to close small gaps between the front teeth.
Limited Tooth Movement
In some cases, we are able to move the front teeth into correct arch form for straighter teeth. A retainer is used and multiple visits are required to make any necessary adjustments.
After the teeth have moved into correct position a final retainer is fabricated to wear each night to keep the teeth from shifting.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected. Root canal therapy is performed when the pulp which is composed of nerves and blood vessels in the tooth becomes infected or damaged. We try to complete most cases here in our office. If the case is beyond our expertise sometimes a referral to an Endodontist is recommended.
Dental implants are an effective way to replace missing teeth. When teeth are lost because of disease or an accident, dental implants may be good option.
Dental Implants may be an option if you:
