Crowns

 

Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular.  They are highly durable and will last many years, but like most dental restorations, they will eventually need to be replaced.  Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color or your teeth giving you a natural, long-lasting beautiful smile.

 


 

Inlays/Onlays

 

Porcelain or metal fillings that are cemented into place. They are specifically designed to restore the strength and durability of the distal molars.

 


 

Dental Implants

 

Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.

 


 

Invisalign


Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten teeth using a series of custom-made, nearly undetectable aligners. And it's been proven effective in both clinical research and in practices nationwide. So whether your teeth are crowded, too far apart or have shifted since wearing braces, you'll have a new reason to smile. www.invisalign.com

 


 

Lumineers / Veneers

 

There's no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature's mistake or the results of an injury and help you have a beautiful smile.

 


 

Whitening

 

A quick, easy, effective way to give yourself a glamorous smile. It can boost your self-esteem, reduce the signs of aging, and is non-invasive. There are many different options available to accommodate your desires. One of the most popular is the laser treatment. The doctor will apply RX strength hydrogen peroxide to the teeth and glaze over with a laser. It typically takes an hour to complete and the results can last up to a year or more.

 


 

Bridges

 

Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The restoration can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.

 


 

Dentures

 

There are various types of complete dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patientís mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. The dentist takes measurements and makes models of the patientís jaws during a preliminary visit. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period.
