Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Badly worn down teeth can be restored back to their normal shape and look to bring back a beautiful smile. A full mouth restoration starts with a consultation. Once a treatment plan is in place, impressions of the patient’s oral cavity are taken and the road to a new smile begins. Some situations require more extensive treatment.
Mercury Free Fillings
Amalgam or silver fillings emits mercury vapor even after they are implanted into the body. In addition placing amalgam requires the removal of a significant amount of healthy tooth matter. This removal, in turn, weakens overall tooth structure which increases the need for future dental work. On top of that, amalgam fillings – which expand and contract over time – crack teeth and once again create the need for still more dental work. We now have better materials that to fill teeth that actually bond to the teeth and help them be stronger.
Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gum line on older crowns.
For decades the standard in dentistry for crown and bridge restoration materials has been the PFM (porcelain-fused-to-metal). The framework for the dental crown was produced in metal and then covered with a porcelain layer.
Now with the evolution of all ceramic materials and their higher esthetic qualities, dental patients have options. Metal free framework beneath the porcelain gives excellent aesthetic qualities to make the final restoration extremely natural looking.
Crowns and Bridges
With the help of today’s stronger and much more aesthetically pleasing restorative material, noticeable metal crowns and bridges have become a thing of the past. It’s important to our team that we provide you with treatment options that are not only strong and long-lasting, but that can blend seamlessly with your existing smile in order to preserve your sense of self-confidence. With crowns and/or bridges made from beautiful dental porcelain, you’ll be sure to have a much more satisfying dental care experience at our office.
Root Canal Therapy: Saving Important Teeth
You may have had a root canal in the past and it may not have been the most pleasant procedure. With advancements in dentistry it can be a painless experience and is the recommended treatment to save a tooth.
A root canal, today is very manageable for patients. The technology has changed, and with the latest anesthetics, the procedure can save the tooth with little or no discomfort for the patient. During a root canal, the pulp in the interior of the tooth is removed and replaced with a special filling. Afterwards a crown is placed over this tooth to give it added strength.
You will be thrilled to know that we have advanced techniques for root canals. Avoiding extraction will prevent other types of dental problems later on. Losing a tooth can start a chain reaction that can cause the loss of other teeth in the future.
