Crowns & Bridges

Do you hide your smile because of damaged or missing teeth? Are you embarrassed by tooth decay, broken, or cracked teeth? Don’t hide any longer. Get your beautiful smile back with a dental crown or dental bridge.

Dental crowns and bridges repair damaged teeth and replace missing teeth. Often made of tooth-colored porcelain, most dental crowns and bridges look like your natural teeth — so no one will ever know the difference.

Tooth Colored Filings

Cosmetic fillings, also called tooth-colored fillings or white fillings, are dental fillings that closely match natural tooth color and appearance. Unlike traditional amalgam fillings, cosmetic fillings seamlessly blend with your natural teeth.

Tooth-colored fillings can also be used to change the size, color or shape of your teeth. Cosmetic dental fillings can close gaps between teeth, repair chipped teeth or make teeth appear straighter and more even.

Tooth Replacement Options

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. Unlike the false teeth of old, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable.

A removable partial denture fills the gap between two healthy teeth. It consists of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base. As a result, dental implants are a safe, effective and permanent way to replace teeth that are missing or badly damaged.

Dental Veneers

A veneer is a thin layer of ceramic or composite resin tooth-colored filling material placed over your tooth to improve shape, size and/or color. These restorations are very aesthetic and require very little, if any, removal of tooth structure.

Indirect Veneers are fabricated by a dental laboratory from either ceramic (porcelain) or resin. Direct veneers are made from composite resin and are placed directly on your teeth by your dentist.

Teeth Whitening

First of all, teeth may be stained or discolored for many reasons. Generally speaking, foods and beverages that are more intensely colored tend to be the biggest offenders. Some examples would be coffee, wine, candies, berries, dark sodas, and tomato sauce.

In addition to color, acidity in foods and beverages can also stain your teeth, as acidic substances can erode dental enamel, which will soften your teeth and make them more vulnerable to discoloration.  That's why teeth whitening is a great option.

Other Dental Services

As thin, resin coatings painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth, dental sealants protect your teeth from future decay and cavities. Dental sealants are placed on your teeth because the chewing surfaces of the molar and premolar teeth have grooves, or “fissures,” that make them highly vulnerable to decay.

These fissures are difficult to clean, as they can be deep and are sometimes narrower than even a single bristle of a toothbrush.

Both of my daughters have braces at The Happy Tooth. My oldest daughter went thru her braces ordeal over 6 years ago and honestly I would not have recommended a dog to go there for teeth care. So I was concerned when my youngest required braces as well. My fears were unfounded. New staff.. Very professional and welcoming for the parents and children. The staff before would not allowed parents to go back with their children but now they have no problem with it at all. Kudos for great staff.. Welcoming environment. Thank you for treating us as people and not just cash in your pocket as the previous staff did.

AWESOME STAFF!!! As soon as you walk in you are greeted with a smile and hello!! Everyone is helpful and patient!!! I personally had a miscommunication issue about an appt. When I called about it I was immediately the PRIORITY!! The manager..Kim...took my call and immediately addressed the issue...she was very professional and most apologetic for the entire staff!!! It was just a simple mix up and she went above and beyond to make sure things were fixed and rescheduled and I honestly HAVE NVR came across any manager that was so involved in a resolution and my satisfaction!!! At (this) Happy Tooth...you are not treated like a patient...they treat and respect you like family and friends!!!! Kudos to all the staff!!! Jobs well done guys!!! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication!!!! 👐😁😉👍👏

I have been going to The Happy Tooth Orthodontist in Sanford for almost 3 years now and I am completely satisfied with my service here. When I arrive I am always welcomed with a smile from both the receptionists and the orthopedists. Everyone remembers my name, which doesn't really happen a lot at other medical departments. I truly am glad that I am a patient at The Happy Tooth in Sanford and I recommend this Orthodontist to everyone!!! Thank you so much Happy Tooth in Sanford for all that you do, just to give me the perfect smile I never knew I had!!!!

I've been a patient at The Happy Tooth for 5 years and recently got my braces off a few months ago. I am very satisfied with the results and my brand new smile, they took terrible teeth and made them great. The staff at Happy Tooth are the nicest people ever, Janet greets people nicely and makes sure that guest are comfortable, feel welcomed, and ready for their appointment. Randi and alisha make sure things are running smoothly, and always provide top- notch care for everyone. Overall my experience at happy tooth has been wonderful, and I would do it all over again !!!

I had a wonderful time at Happy Tooth. My experience with Happy Tooth was amazing. I will like to thank everyone that help me on my journey, such as Missy, Alisha, Orlando, Frankie, Dr. Ruth, and my favorite Janet. These people made my experience smooth, easy, and quick. The Happy Tooth crew is best. I had many great years with them and this day was awesome. I got my braces off and I'm the happiest person on the planet.

I've been a patient at Happy Tooth for nearly two years and I love everybody there!! Everyone is so kind to me and they're always so energetic. They did a great job with my teeth, I love them! I would definitely recommend this place to people out there who want a little fix to their teeth. Other than that, if I were to choose who my favorite staff member is, it would be Orlando!! He's too kind and always manages to put a smile on my face with his jokes! 🙂

I'm currently a patient at happy tooth and they have done an amazing job on my teeth and friends and family of mine that have past experience at the happy tooth. I have to say I enjoy being around every employee that works there. They are always so kind to me and give me the best experience when going to my appointments. Janet is always so helpful at the front desk and explains everything so thoroughly to me when I ask questions and so does the doctor and everyone in the back working on me and others teeth. If I had to recommend anyone that needed braces to an orthodontist it would have to be this one. I love The Happy Tooth and wouldn't have traded this experience for anything.
