An Oral Health evaluation is very important and can lead to serious and painful dental issues if not done periodically.
A diagnosis is performed by your dentist to screen for oral cancer, periodontal disease or any other oral problems you may have.
Once a diagnosis is completed by our dental team, a treatment plan is put in place that outlines your recommended dental treatment, timeframe and cost.
A smile makeover improves the appearance of your smile through several dental procedures that can resolve issues such as stained, discolored, worn, chipped, broken, misaligned, misshapen, or even gaps between teeth. Procedures can include Dental Veneers, Braces, Dental bonding, Gum Reshaping, Inlays and Onlays to mention a few.
Looking to Brighten your smile? There are a couple of things to consider before doing so. One major factor is knowing that replacement teeth such as crowns or bridges don’t whiten. Second is to decide if you would like an at-home whitening kit which may lighten your teeth by 5-7 shades by wearing the provided whitening tray for a few hours daily. Another option would be our in-office whitening solution using state-of-the-art LED light technology that may lighten your teeth 5-7 shades in 1 hour.
Dental implants are used in cases where a tooth is no longer available. The dental implants work in replacement of your tooth roots to provide a permanent foundation where a Dental Crown, Bridge or denture can be mounted. The Dental Implant is a small post made of titanium which is placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. Once your jawbone heals which can take to 12 weeks, the implant is securely anchored.
A dentist can apply an artificial crown in the case that your tooth gets chipped or broken. Dental crowns can be made of a type of dental cement that looks like a regular tooth or stainless steel made of silver or gold. If more than one tooth is chipped or broken, then you may need a bridge which is used to cover a larger space instead of just a single tooth. In both cases, the patient’s tooth is prepared by shaping the tooth to the specs needed for fitting.
Sometimes called invisible aligners, are a treatment used to correct misaligned or crooked teeth. Because they are almost invisible, they can be a great alternative to traditional braces.
