What we can do for you?
The repair of chipped or broken teeth may be done through bondings.
A dental composite material with the appearance of enamel is applied to the surface of the tooth, then sculpted into shape, contoured and polished, making the crack or chipped invisible.
A bridge, a device used to replace missing teeth – attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges can be permanently attached or they can be removable. Fixed bridges are applied by either placing crowns on the abutment teeth. Removable bridges are attached to the teeth with metal clasps or by precision attachments.
Dental cleanings basically consist of removal of plaque and the cleaning of the teeth to prevent cavities and gum disease.
Porcelain and composite resin are used to provide a tooth-like appearance.
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements that are used as part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry to compensate for tooth loss. A small titanium fixture is surgically implanted below the gum tissue and into the jaw bone to serve as a root for a prosthetic crown. Implants are practically indistinguishable from your natural teeth and can be used to replace one tooth, a partial or a complete denture.
Porcelain laminates bonded to the surface of a tooth to replace chips and cracks will improve a worn appearance or sever tooth discoloration, veneer may also be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth.
Dentures, commonly called “false teeth” are prosthetic teeth set in artificial gums, complete and partial dentures are removable for easier cleaning. When some natural teeth remain, a partial denture can be fitted to replace the missing teeth. A partial denture rests on gum tissues and it is usually held in place by metal clasps securing it to adjacent teeth.
Crowns are a type of dental restoration which when cemented into place, fully cup over a portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. There are different types of crowns but porcelain crowns posses a translucency that makes them, cosmetically, the most pleasing.
Porcelain inlays and onlays are restorations used to repair rear teeth have mild to moderate amount of decay. They can also be used to restore teeth that are cracked or fractured if the damage is not severe enough to require a dental crown.
REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURES
Removable partial dentures usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework. Removable partial dentures attach to your natural teeth with metal clasps or devices called precision attachment.
Root canal treatment, also known as endodontic treatment, is the process of removing infected, injured or dead pulp from the tooth. The space inside the hard layers of each tooth is called the root canal system. This system is filled with soft dental pulp made up of nerves and blood vessels that help your tooth grow and develop.
In our practice, we use microscope on every case, as the root canal procedure takes place in a very small area of the tooth and requires expert precision to effectively navigate the roots and canals.
Some patients want whiter teeth immediately or at least as soon as possible. Our office offers one – visit technology that can whiten your teeth several shades in about an hour, additionaly, we offer a take home whitening system that can lighten teeth up to three shades in four nights.
What is Prosthodontics?
Is one of eight dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. The typical prosthodontic training includes four years of dental school and three years of prosthodontic training in areas of dentistry that include crowns, bridges, dentures, cosmetics, temporomandibular joint function and dental implants.
A prosthodontist provides an extremely high level of care for patients who are missing teeth or have significant damage to their existing teeth. Prosthodontists deal with congenital defects as well as problems arising from trauma and neglect. The prosthodontist can aid in the rehabilitation of a complete dentition or merely in the replacement of one or two teeth. With the advent of dental implants as a viable means of replacing teeth, the prosthodentist can supply the control and expertise that is necessary to make an implant supported restoration look and function properly.
Rigorous training and experience provides Prosthodontist with the special understanding of the dynamics of the smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth, and the creation of tooth replacements. Serving as the ¨architect¨ of a dental treatment plan, they collaborate with general dentists, specialists and other health professionals to develop solutions for your dental concerns.
