Veneers
A veneers, is a thin covering that is placed over the front (visible) part of the tooth. The dentist applies veneers in a simple, comfortable procedure that takes just a few visits. Veneers are a popular treatment option for several reasons. Veneers generally are place on upper front teeth that are severely discolored, poorly shaped or slightly crooked. Veneers may be used to lighten front teeth that are naturally yellow or have a gray cast can’t be whitened by bleaching.

Veneers are sometimes used to correct teeth that are chipped or worn. They may also be used to correct uneven spaces or a diastema (a large, noticeable gap between the upper front teeth.

Crowns
A crown is a restoration that covers, or caps, a tooth to restore it to it’s normal shape and size. Its purpose is to strengthen or improve the appearance of a tooth. Crowns are placed for a variety of reasons. Crowns can:

  • Restore teeth when there isn’t enough tooth remaining to provide support for large fillings
  • attached bridges
  • protect weak teeth from fracturing
  • restore fractured teeth
  • cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
  • cover dental implants

Bridges
Sometimes a bit more work is needed to give you the smile you want. If you are missing teeth, having trouble speaking or chewing, and noticing strain when biting, bridges may be the ideal procedure to help make your mouth healthy and functional again. Bridges, sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures, literally bridge gaps between teeth by filling them with strong, natural-looking artificial teeth. These prostheses are long lasting, comfortable, and proven to make teeth strong. To find out if bridges are the right option for you, please contact us today.

Implant Restoration
Implants are metal posts or frames that are surgically placed beneath your gums. After placement, the implants fuse to the bone of your jaw and act as artificial tooth roots. Replacement teeth-singularly or grouped on a bridge or denture-are then mounted to the implant. This secure fit also helps replacement teeth feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures. They can also be more esthitic in appearrance.

Breath Control
The most common source of bad breath is the deep crevices in the back of the tongue, but can also originate in areas called periodontal pockets. Naturally occurring bacteria thrive in these hidden areas and form odorous volatile sulfur compounds. Regular dental cleanings and examinations enable your dental professional to help you maintain long-lasting fresh breath in addition to healthy teeth and gums. Chronic bad breath can be indicative of more serious health problems. Your dental professional can help you tackle this sensitive issue and discuss the many ways of managing bad breath concerns – either in the dental office or at home.
