Porcelain Veneers, Lumineers

Veneers can be used to close spaces between your teeth, lengthen small or misshapen teeth, or whiten stained teeth. And if your teeth are chipped or beginning to wear, veneers can protect them from damage and restore their original look.

Once in place, veneers virtually become part of your teeth. You can use them like you would your own teeth, because the bond is extremely strong. The final result is a more beautiful and natural looking smile!

Filling, Crown, and Bridge Replacements

It’s important to deal quickly with a loose or broken filling or crown. Once a filling or crown has lost its seal, a cavity will quickly form. A cavity in the area of a restoration is already past the first line of defense of the tooth. Waiting beyond a few days may allow the decay to reach the nerve. Then, the only treatment option is a root canal. Another risk of waiting is that the filling or crown might fall completely out of your tooth during the night. If it enters your windpipe, you may be headed for surgery in the hospital.

Invisalign

Invisalign is known as “The clear alternative to braces.” This product uses a series of clear aligners that are custom-molded to fit you. The virtually invisible aligners gradually reposition your teeth into a smile you’ll be proud of.

Fresh Breath Treatment

Bad breath can be caused by tooth decay, gum disease, lack of saliva ( foods and drinks, tobacco, medications or illness.

Schedule a dental appointment to find out if your bad breath is being caused by tooth decay, gum disease, or a medical condition that should be treated by a physician. If you have a dental problem, your dentist will recommend a course of treatment to stop any infection, clean and restore your teeth, and improve the health of your gums.

 

Your dentist may also recommend that you take a hard look at your daily dental hygiene. Remember, you should be brushing at least twice a day and flossing at least once daily. If your bad breath is not a dental problem, your dentist may suggest changes to your eating and drinking habits or refer you to a physician.

Teeth Whitening

Often the difference between a good smile and a great smile is the whiteness of the teeth.

All dental whitening involves the application of a whitening agent to the teeth. Until recently, the whitening agent was applied via soft trays (custom designed by a dentist, or bought in over-the-counter kits) that are worn overnight or during the day for two to three weeks. But now dentists are offering a new way to whiten teeth. Called power whitening, it’s often used in conjunction with take-home whitening procedures.

For a power-whitening treatment, your dentist first protects your gums, and then applies a concentrated whitening agent.

Filling Upgrade

Everything wears out eventually, and white plastic fillings are no exception. As white fillings in front teeth age, they absorb moisture, swell, and begin to leak.

This filling has lost its seal and no longer fully protects the tooth from cavities. When they’re small like this, it’s easy to replace them with new plastic fillings.

But sometimes, front fillings fail in another way. There’s a tremendous amount of force on the edges of teeth when you bite together.

As you can see here, some of the tooth broke away from the biting edge as a result of biting pressure. To strengthen the tooth and protect it from future damage, crowning or bonding may be necessary.
