Tooth Color Fillings (composite/bonding)

 
 
Tooth color fillings can restore the natural appearance of your tooth. The preparation of the tooth is limited to removing just the decayed part of the tooth which means less removal of healthy tooth structure. This process is more conservative than the silver (amalgam) filling. The tooth color filling material is strong, durable, and can protect your teeth from cracking as they share similar physical properties as the natural tooth. We use the best bonding and filling materials. The doctor also uses correct techniques that greatly prolong the life of your filling, eliminate sensitivity, and prevent leakage and discoloration around the fillings.
 

Porcelain Veneers

 
 
 

Porcelain Veneers are thin shells made of strong and durable porcelain that are bonded over the front part of the teeth. In general, Veneers can be used to restore worn, chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth and can also be used to close spaces or gaps.

 

Inlays and Onlays

 
 

Inlays and Onlays can be used instead of fillings when the remaining part of the tooth is weak, brittle, or too thin to contain a regular filling due to wide and deep decay. Inlays fit into the space remaining after the decay or an old filling is removed. Porcelain or Gold inlays bind onto the tooth and increase the overall strength of the tooth.

An onlay covers most or the entire chewing surface of the tooth and strengthens it to prevent a fracture from occuring. The porcelain onlay is a more conservative option than a crown. It covers only those parts of the tooth that are weak.

 

Implants

 
 

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement. Our office works with the best oral surgeons that can place the titanium implant. We can restore the missing tooth by placing an attachment, crown, and/or a bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for replacing a missing tooth or teeth without prepping or compromising the adjacent healthy teeth or when there are no adjacent teeth. Also, we can use the implant(s) to support a denture or a partial denture for excellent retention. This can eliminate the embarrassing movements of a poorly retentive denture due to bone loss.

 

Crowns

 
 
 

Crowns can be made in materials such as all-porcelain, prcelain-fuesd to metal,porcelain-fused to gold, or full gold (white or yellow gold). The choice depends on the position, condition of the tooth and patient's grinding or clinching habits. Crowns are fabricated to restore the tooth back to its natural look, color, shape and function.

A porcelain crown is made of pure porcelain, ceramic, or aesthetic reinforced resins. It is a metal free crown that is recommended anywhere in the mouth especially the front teeth for a natural vital look. We use one of the best porcelain crowns called Lava. Lava crowns are lined with zirconia on the inside for strength and for natural translucency to look like natural teeth.

Porcelain fused to gold is a crown lined on the inside with gold. We use special crowns lined with 24K yellow gold called a Captek crown. Research has proven that pure gold can eliminate the accumulation of bacteria around the crown margins that can cause recurrent decay and gum irritation. This also helps gives the crown a natural look without the grey metal color that can be seen at the gum line with some of the other forms of crowns. Lava or Captek crowns are metal-free crowns which are great for patients who have metal allergies. Nickel and chromium metals are used in regular crowns.

Full gold crowns can be used for posterior molars, heavy grinders, and in other certain cases.

To achieve the best with our crown quality we use the best local labs.
 

Bridge

 
 
 A bridge is a natural looking fixed dental appliance that can replace missing teeth, restore the natural contour of your teeth, and preserve the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth. Bridges consist of two crowns at the side carrying the artificial missing tooth (or teeth) in between.
 

Cosmetic Contouring & Reshaping

 

This is a relatively simple procedure that can correct crooked, chipped, cracked, and over lapping teeth for cosmetic, physiological, or functional purposes. It requires no shots or anesthesia.This procedure makes the teeth look more aligned. Although it is limited to simple cases, the results can be astonishing when combined with bonding.

 

Endodontic Therapy (Root Canal Treatment)

 
 

Treatment option used to save a badly decayed or infected tooth from an extraction. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and infected or dead tissue is removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed to prepare it to get a final restoration.

We're proud to do most of the root canal treatment cases in our office with great success using the most recent techniques with use of quality materials and filling system.

 

Removable Dental Prosthesis (Dentures or Partial Dentures)

 
 
Dentures are removable prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable; however there are many different denture designs and materials. Dentures or partials may be supported by dental implants to help improve retention, and be able to be clipped to existing teeth. The best labs are used to fabricate light, metal free, comfortable and natural looking dentures.
