Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel. It is often the material of choice for those looking to make slight position alterations, or to change tooth shape, size, and/or color.

Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth. Unlike natural teeth, custom-made veneers resist coffee and tea stains, and cigarette smoke because they are made of high-tech materials. Veneers look natural and can be used on just one or several teeth to correct many esthetic dental problems.

Professional Teeth Whitening

We offer an in-house teeth whitening treatment that can give you a brighter, whiter, more youthful smile.  It only takes about an hour and can help remove years of stains and discoloration.  This teeth whitening treatment is efficient, economical, offers wonderful results and is performed by our doctors.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are most often thought of as a solution for a damaged tooth. But since a crown fully encases your tooth, it is also a perfect solution for many cosmetic problems. Crowns can hide old and dark fillings, cover discolored teeth, and reshape poorly proportioned teeth.

Dental crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re–establish its original function and to create a natural appearance. Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. They are also an option for people who grind and clench their teeth so much that the original structure of their teeth has been compromised.

Dental Bridges

According to the American Dental Association, missing teeth in adults 20-64 are not that uncommon. If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. A bridge can fix that-and restore your smile!

Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth and literally “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth used to be. Bridges can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and are attached to surrounding teeth for support.

Let us explain the different types of bridges and evaluate what is your best option for replacing a missing tooth.  You’ll love the comfort and your beautiful smile!

Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great option to replace lost or missing teeth because they look natural.  With implants, you can enjoy the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and just enjoy life!

Dental implants offer the same function as natural teeth and also help prevent bone atrophy in the jaw.  Dental implants are surgically placed artificial roots to which replacement teeth can be attached. Implants are extremely durable and can remain in place for 30 years or longer!  Whether tooth loss is due to tooth decay, injury, or periodontal disease, dental implants can replace those missing teeth. The best candidates for dental implants have good oral health. You should also have healthy gum tissues.

Dental implants are an alternative for the patient who:

  • Cannot function comfortably with conventional dentures.
  • Who has lost teeth and wants to avoid removable partial dentures.
  • Who needs a crown or fixed bridge but doesn’t want to damage his or her adjacent healthy teeth.
  • Who wants to have the dental solution that is the closest to what Mother Nature created.

Dental implants may be used to replace a single missing or damaged tooth or to restore an entire smile.   Most patients who receive an implant are back to work the day after the procedure!   Find out if you are a candidate for dental implants!  Call our office at (217) 223-9137 and we can answer all your questions!
