  Cosmetic Restorations

     Tooth-Colored Fillings…

Restorative Dentistry refers to the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged, decayed or lost. Composite tooth colored fillings, as shown above, are the only restorations used by our office. Once we have examined your teeth and evaluated your dental and medical history, we will be ready to provide your diagnosis, and treatment options. If a filling is not adequate, a crown may be constructed to restore an individual damaged tooth back to it’s original form and function, while a bridge may be utilized to replace one or more teeth. These restorations are cemented onto the teeth and are referred to as fixed dentistry as opposed to a restoration of missing teeth with a removable appliance or partial denture. These crowns and bridges are typically made from very strong and esthetic ceramic materials.

      Treatment of Stained, Malformed, and Unattractive Teeth…

As Dental Providers, we pay close attention to the appearance of your dental work. Ceramic and composite technology has advanced to the point where beautiful and durable dental treatment can be provided to every patient. There is so much advanced training involved in learning how to use these materials properly, that only those dentists who are truly passionate about the appearance of their patients invest the time and effort to achieve truly unbelievable esthetic results.

      Bonding, CAD/CAM Veneers and Metal-Free Crowns…

Modern cosmetic dentistry includes an array of dental procedures that can improve your overall appearance and give you a very desirable smile. Cosmetic dentistry can improve your smile by teeth whitening, teeth straightening, veneers, crowns, composites and even metal-free cosmetic dentures.

 

 



In-Home Whitening

For in-home whitening, we take an impression to make a model of your teeth, then fabricate custom-fitted trays, and prescribe a whitening gel for you contained in syringe dispensers. The gel is placed in the trays and worn up to two hours daily or at night for about two weeks - this will vary according to each person’s individual whitening needs.

Although they may appear to cost less, over the counter products are not usually as effective in their results. Whitening treatment should be done under our supervision following a proper exam & diagnosis.

 


 

Care and Considerations

Brushing and flossing, twice a day, as well as regular professional cleanings, along with occasional touch-up treatments will help keep teeth white.

Some people, with certain dental conditions, may not be good candidates for this type of whitening. People with gum recession, for example, may have exposed root surfaces that are highly sensitive and could be irritated by ingredients in the whitening components. In addition, these products are not recommended for habitual tobacco and alcohol users.

An attractive, whiter smile increases your self-confidence.

Whitening results usually last between one and three years. With in-home whiteniing trays, a touch-up is as simple as purchasing and using additional gel syringes whenever you are ready or have a special event.

 

 


  Cosmetic Veneers

 and Crowns

 

      

 

Veneers and crowns are used to close gaps or cover teeth that are stained, poorly shaped, broken,or slightly crooked.

 Even subtle change in your smile can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel. When you feel & look good, you project a confident self-image. So, make the most of your smile - ask what cosmetic veneers and crowns can do for you.

     How Veneers are Applied

Having a tooth veneered is a procedure requiring just a couple of appointments. To provide the proper form and help strengthen a veneer, a small amount of enamel may be removed from the front and edges of the tooth.

An impression of the teeth is then made and sent to our dental laboratory where the veneers are expertly made to match the color and shape of your teeth according to our design and specifications.

When it is time to attach the veneer, your tooth is cleaned and prepared for bonding and the veneer set in place with a composite resin cement and given a final polish.

 

Aftercare

As with your natural teeth, veneers require good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. To keep veneers looking as good as new, follow our recommendations. In some cases, certain foods can cause discoloration. This includes tea, coffee, red wine, other heavily pigmented foods, and tobacco.

Veneers can chip or peel if not cared for properly, so avoid habits such as fingernail biting, chewing on ice, and other hard objects. Like any restoration, it is possible for the veneer to come off or for decay to develop. In that situation a new veneer may be required.

Wear of a nightguard is often recommended to protect the veneers and natural teeth from chronic "grinding" damage.
