Used to recreate the natural look of teeth, veneers are a great way to fix cosmetic dental issues such as chipped, misshapen, discolored and/or broken teeth and gaps. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin and almost invisible, which make them easy to apply. The material bonds to teeth and remains sturdy as well as resistant to stains caused by coffee, tea, and cigarettes. Their placement is difficult and requires skill and attention to detail, and our team is dedicated to create personalized veneers to fit your smile.
Metal Free Dentistry
Due to the extremely toxic and harmful mercury in amalgam fillings, we do not use silver fillings in our practice and have completely eliminated toxic materials from our offices. If your previous dental office used metal fillings, we can remove these harmful metals from your mouth and detoxify your body to neutralize the free radicals in infected cells. If mercury caused any harm in your body, the effects will be reversed once the metal filling is removed.
Porcelain crowns appear more natural than crowns with a metal lining as light is able to pass through them as it does with real teeth. Crowns made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal are extremely useful and beneficial as they can fix broken or fractured teeth, improve teeth after a root canal, or fix discolored or misshapen teeth.
Tea, coffee, red wine, and tobacco use contribute to staining and discoloring teeth. Teeth whitening can help recreate your smile to make you look years younger. Our office has many different services to deliver a white smile, and a variety of options for different financial budgets.
Composite (White) Fillings
Our mercury-free office uses composite white fillings, which are made of a resin material that resembles the tooth’s color and is also a strong restoration technique. Unlike metal fillings, composite fillings have an adhesive chemistry and binding quality that leaves the mechanical lock and drillings unnecessary. The resulting filling is smaller, and the tooth is sturdier due to the resin material that helps glue it together.
Inlays and Onlays vs. Crowns
Inlays, onlays, and crowns are different restoration techniques available to our patients. Crowns, or caps, cover the whole tooth, and thus replace a greater portion of the real tooth than inlays and onlays. Our office is more inclined to recommend inlays and onlays since they preserve more of the tooth. Crown placement can reduce existing tooth structure, which can in turn increase the potential need for a root canal or periodontal health problems since the crown impairs cleaning near the gum. A crown is a great solution if a tooth has already undergone a root canal procedure or is heavily decayed. As with other procedures and options, our staff will assist you in choosing the right restoration option given your dental history and budget.
