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 Fillings
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.
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.
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.
