Composite Fillings

Do you have chipped teeth, cracked or broken teeth, worn or decayed teeth? Then getting composite fillings is a great way to restore your teeth to their natural state. As the times have changed, our treatment options have updated with them. Silver fillings were once the standard of care, whereas now, tooth colored (composite) fillings have replaced them. A composite filling is now most commonly used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite material. Our dentist can discuss the best options for restoring your teeth. With composite fillings being tooth colored, they can be closely matched to the color of existing teeth to blend smoothly. They are very durable, and will last many years, giving you a long lasting, beautiful smile.

Teeth Whitening

Do you have a special occasion coming up? Perhaps a wedding, a class reunion, or simply in need of a confidence booster. Whatever the reason, tooth bleaching isn’t just for rich and famous. Many people have had their teeth bleached, as the desire for a brighter smile with whiter teeth is very strong. Teeth bleaching safely lightens the color of the teeth, lasting for many years. The most effective and safest method of tooth bleaching is via dentist supervision. Bleaching teeth removes years of coffee, tea, soda, smoke and food stains. It creates a more appealing, youthful smile. Teeth whitening is a safe, effective way to enhance your smile. Whitening will give your smile an immediate sparkle.

Veneers

If you want a confident smile without repetitive care replacing old fillings then porcelain veneers are a great way to give you the smile you have always wanted. Porcelain veneers are thin, artistically handcrafted veneers of porcelain that are permanently affixed to the front surfaces of teeth using adhesive materials and advanced bonding techniques. They are resistant to stains and chips, are extremely natural looking and won’t discolor over time. If whitening has not given you the results you desire, veneers may be a better solution to your cosmetic needs. Veneers can be used to correct spaces, discoloration, crooked teeth, and mis-alignment. The results of porcelain veneers are immediate, dramatic and long lasting.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture in place. The benefit of using implants is that they don’t rely on neighboring teeth for support, which means you are minimizing the damage to your remaining natural teeth. They are permanent and stable. With the look and feel of natural teeth, dental implants are one of the best solutions for tooth loss. Dental implants will not only help your teeth function better, such as chewing, but help your overall oral health.
