Restorative Dentistry

Three types of dental crowns

fillings

A filling is a restoration that repairs part of a damaged tooth. When modern composite or ceramic materials are combined with precision techniques, fillings can fit and fill most types of cavities without removing large amounts of healthy enamel. And they can be color-matched to look completely natural.

Whatever you feel, we can work together to determine the best veneer makeover strategy for your hand-crafted custom-fitted porcelain veneers. Be sure to bring your wish list to your initial consultation appointment!

veneers

Veneers are hand sculpted from beautiful ceramics by trained technicians. Built-in translucence mimics natural enamel and allows some of the inner light to shine through. 
Veneers really are supper natural! Once applied, they act as a shield for your teeth. Porcelain material is highly resistant to oral bacteria and to permanent staining from smoking, coffee, tea, and food.

Men and women who want to look more successful and more energized in any environment can enjoy the advantages of even, straighter-looking, whiter teeth!
Please come and see us at our practice for a cosmetic veneer consultation.

Ceramic veneers could give you your dream smile if…

Mask the cumulative staining effect from coffee, tea, colas and tobacco products, or chemical compounds like fluoride and the antibiotic tetracycline as well as root canal treatment.

Enhance the appearance of your smile by acquiring more balanced proportions, disguising gaps and spaces and covering chipped, broken or malformed teeth.

Idealize the appearance of slightly rotated, tipped or misaligned teeth by using veneers as instant orthodontics.

bridges

A bridge is a combination of crowns and artificial teeth that closes a gap left by a missing tooth (or teeth), restoring your smile and redistributing the workload.

Nobody wants to lose teeth, but let’s face it – it can happen to anyone. Maybe even you? Thanks to dental implants though, you can avoid further damage that would otherwise add insult or injury. like the inevitable shifting and tilting of surrounding teeth and the loss of bone in the jaw that can create a sunken prematurely aged appearance.

  • Implants require only normal brushing and flossing - no special home-care routines.
  • There is no need to remove healthy enamel from surrounding teeth to accomodate implants.
  • There is no metal visible above your gumline.
  • Implants can be used for a single tooth replacement or as part of a major makeover.

Smile with Immediate Function implants

‘Noble Biocare Immediate Function’ dental implants can be inserted into your jaw and used immediately with an alternative and functional temporary tooth – in only one appointment! After only three to six months, wou’ll be ready for the placement of your permanent crown.

Interestingly, implants are a more conservative intervention than traditional bridges or fixed partial dentures. They require only normal brushing and flossing to maintain oral health, unlike bridges that may make cleaning awkward. Because implants are anchored into the bone like the roots of your teeth, they act like natural teeth and preserve and strengthen the underlying bone. There is no need to shape adjust healthy teeth, and there are no plates to affect comfort and fit.

Unfortunately, not everyone is a candidate for instant teeth, depending on many factors including the amount and density of your bone, the number of teeth to be replaced, bite strength and other variables. 

We can help make your smile beautiful and natural for lifetime. Please see us soon for a consultation.
