Fillings 

It's all about choices, you can choose to keep the silver fillings that you've had since you were a child or return to a more youthful appearance by replacing old, discolored fillings. Today's cosmetic fillings match your teeth so perfectly it will look like you've been cavity free for your entire life! A bright smile commands attention, can open doors to exciting opportunities and gives your self-confidence a boost. 

Teeth dulled by old amalgam fillings don't reflect light, and may give the appearance of darkened gray teeth. No matter what your chronological age, you feel better if you look great. The image reflected back to you when you look in the mirror or out into the world influences how you feel about yourself and your life. Isn't it worth looking into the cosmetic options to improve the appearance of your smile?

Dental Sealants

A dental sealant is an acrylic-like material that helps shield out decay-causing bacteria from the chewing surfaces of back teeth. We base our diagnosis and recommendation for dental sealants on the patient's susceptibility to tooth decay and how the teeth were shaped when they originally formed below the gum. Though there is no specific age at which sealants are indicated, often we will recommend that the best time to apply them is when the six-year molars (the first permanent back teeth) appear. 

How Do Sealants Help Prevent Decay? 
Sealant material forms a protective barrier by bonding to tooth surfaces and covering natural depressions and grooves (called pits and fissures) in the teeth. More than 75 per- cent of dental decay begins in the pit and fissure areas of the back teeth. Combined with proper home care and regular dental visits, sealants are extremely effective in preventing tooth decay.
Are Sealants Suitable For All Teeth? 

Sealants are applied only to pit and fissure areas of specific teeth. Unfortunately, they cannot be applied to the surfaces in between teeth, where daily flossing is recommended to prevent decay.

Root Canals 

A treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth will become infected and abscesses may form.

 

Cosmetic Dentistry / Bonding 

The quality of your smile says a lot about who you are. A sincere smile with white, straight, beautifully shaped teeth sends a different message than an equally sincere smile with noticeable fillings, decay, chipped or discolored teeth. First impressions are lasting. Cosmetic Bonding provides a solution that will improve the overall appearance of your teeth and enable you to make a glowing first impression and rediscover a more youthful, healthy smile.

 

Bonding recreates natural looking teeth

You don't have to live with chipped, cracked, stained or discolored teeth. Advances in cosmetic dentistry have created many solutions to fashion your picture-perfect smile. The color and shape of your teeth can be changed to create a new whiter, brighter smile and a more youthful appearance.

 

Cosmetic Dentistry / Whitening

Your habits can affect your smile! Tobacco use and drinking red wine, dark berry juice, coffee, tea or cola over time shows in your smile. Teeth that are stained and discolored detract from your overall appearance, while sparkling white teeth can dramatically improve your face value! Whether your style is classically elegant or denim casual a great smile, free of unsightly stains, improves the appearance of your teeth and adds a healthy glow to your overall appearance.

 

Veneers 

An excellent impression is a priority. A healthy smile shows you have a healthy attitude about yourself. You don't have to live with a smile that's less than perfect. With advances in cosmetic dentistry, you can have a perfect smile in just a few weeks. Cosmetic dentistry provides new choices that will improve your dental health and help retain a youthful, natural looking smile. Why risk leaving a negative impression when modern cosmetic dentistry offers you options to correct a less than perfect smile?  Veneers create a PERFECT smile! 

Veneers are custom-made tooth colored porcelain laminates designed to cover the front portion of your tooth and are generally recommended to improve the following dental conditions:

-Spaces between front teeth

-Permanently stained teeth

-Cracked or chipped teeth

-Worn teeth

-Slightly crooked or poorly shaped teeth

 

Implants

A dental implant is a cylindrical and/or tapered post, usually made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the tooth root. Dental implants are often the best treatment for missing teeth when you use an experienced implant dentist. The implant is placed in the jawbone so that it can fuse with your natural bone and become a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Implants can be used to replace an individual tooth or for an implant-supported bridge or denture containing multiple teeth. 

Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all of your regular activities of everyday life without worrying about your teeth.

 
 

Dentures & Partials 

We fashion custom dentures to complement your facial features and lifestyle. If you are facing the possibility of replacing your teeth with dentures, you need to understand how they will impact your lifestyle. We're here to address any concerns you may have about adjusting to your dentures. 
Whether you are missing some or all of your natural teeth, you can derive many benefits from replacing them with full or partial dentures. Replacement teeth help fill out your smile by giving support to the cheeks and lips. Replacement teeth create a more youthful, vibrant appearance by holding up facial muscles and aiding in speaking, chewing, swallowing and smiling. 


Will I Experience Changes in the Way I Speak or Chew? 

You may find that you occasionally bite your tongue or cheek until you get used to having these spaces filled. Initially, you may want to choose a soft or liquid diet, making sure to avoid sticky or hard foods. Cutting food into smaller bites can be helpful. With full dentures you may also find it helpful to chew off bits of food from the side, rather than directly from the front.

You may also notice some salivary and taste changes associated with you replacement teeth. These are to be expected when a new prosthesis is introduced. With time, you will adjust to these changes and will feel a high degree of confidence and comfort when speaking and chewing. 


How Long Will It Take to Get Used to Replacement Teeth? 

Ease in adapting to new teeth varies from person to person. Those who choose to undergo full extractions and have dentures placed immediately should lace the dentures in until the postoperative appointment scheduled for the following day. Especially during healing, the dentures should be left in the mouth most of the time, because they act as a "bandage," giving support to the oral tissue. 

After the initial healing, your dentures should be removed upon retiring every evening. Remember that, if the appliance is removed, it must not be allowed to dry out, as this causes the material to shrink or distort. Always soak the removable teeth until returning them to your mouth

Night Guards, NTI and Sports Guards

Night Guards: A night guard is meant to protect the teeth from clenching and grinding during sleep. It is worn every night or every time the person sleeps, so it is fabricated using a material that is not as thick but strong enough to serve its function.

Sports Guards:  

A sport mouth guard is an appliance that is prescribed to an athlete to protect his teeth from being damaged from a physical blow to the face or an accident. A sport mouth guard is usually made with a thicker material and given its purpose, it is made to extend to cover the entire jaw, even the gum issue so that the entire mouth can be protected.

 

Periodontal Cleaning

Is performed to thoroughly clean the teeth. It is an important preventative dental treatment for retarding the progression of periodontal disease and gingivitis. 

How would I know if I had periodontal disease? 
It's possible to have periodontal disease without apparent symptoms. That's why regular dental checkups and periodontal examinations are very important. 
Several warning signs can signal a problem. If you notice any of the following, see your dentist:

-Gums that bleed easily

-Red, swollen, or tender gums

-Gums that have pulled away from your teeth

-Persistent bad breath

-Pus between the teeth and gums

-Loose or separating teeth

-A change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite

-A change in the fit of partial dentures
