Cosmetic & Restorative
  • bonding

    In recent years, bonding has proven to be a highly effective treatment for closing spaces between the teeth. Composite resin, a plastic material, is applied to the teeth to make them wider in areas were gaps exist. Bonding can also be used to close a space temporarily, until crowns are made, for example. On the other hand, if you are having your spaces closed through orthodontics, even if some of your teeth are too dark, bonding can be used to lighten them while the spaces are being closed.

    If you are closing gaps with bonding, also consider taking care of any other visible defects such as rotated or broken teeth at the same time. As in most esthetic problems, computer imaging can help show you how many teeth will need treatment. Also remember that gum disease or bone loss must be treated before bonding takes place. The only exception to this rule is when you dentist believes that the loose teeth need to be splinted together.

  • veneers

    Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size or length and resulting in an improved appearance. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. You will need to discuss the best choice of veneer

  • Porcelain Crowns

    Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cup over the portion of a tooth which lies at and above the gum line. In comparison, fillings are dental restorations that are used to fill in or cover over just a portion of a tooth. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown in effect becomes the tooth's new outer surface.

    Crowns can be made out of porcelain (or some other ceramic material), gold (or metal alloys), or a combination of both. Dental crowns are often referred to as "dental caps" or "tooth caps". Crowns are used to repair badly decayed, broken, discolored, or misaligned teeth. Crowns completely cover teeth, restoring them to their natural size, shape, and function. The location of the crown in the mouth usually dictates the type of material used. The tooth under the crown is reduced in size.

    The crown will be permanently cemented over the reduced tooth. While you are waiting for the permanent crown to be fabricated, your dentist will provide you with a temporary one to wear. Crowns have a much longer life span than bonding, resist stains better, hold their color and resist chipping and cracking. Crowns, however, take longer to prepare than bonding and are not reversible. Your dentist can recommend which type of restoration is best for your particular situation. If the tooth is severely decayed, or little tooth structure remains, it may be necessary to place a metal post into the tooth to support the crown. If this is the case, root canal therapy will be performed.

  • Porcelain Inlays/Onlays

    Inlays and Onlays are used to repair damage involving over half of the tooth's biting surface, rather than using a simple filling, or a crown.

    An inlay is similar to a filling and lies inside the cusp tips of the tooth; an onlay is a more extensive reconstruction that covers one or more cusps of a tooth.

    Inlays and onlays are both traditionally made of gold; however, porcelain is now becoming the material of choice because of its strength and potential to match the natural color of your tooth.

    Inlays and onlays are applied in two dental visits. At the first visit, the old filling, or decay, is removed, and the tooth is prepared for the inlay / onlay. The dentist will then make an impression of the tooth and will place a temporary sealant on your tooth and schedule a second appointment.

    At the second visit, the temporary sealant is removed. Your dentist will then ensure that the inlay / onlay fits properly in the tooth and does not interfere with your bite. Once correctly fit, the inlay / onlay is bonded into the tooth with a strong bonding resin, and polished smooth.

  • Gum contouring

    Gum contouring is a valuable tool that an experienced cosmetic dentist uses to help create a beautiful smile. The lips and gums act as a frame for patient's smile. Healthy gums are a very important part of a pleasant appearance. It's not just the teeth that look beautiful; it's the combination of everything that is seen. When there is too much gum it gives the patient an unattractive gummy smile even if the teeth are wonderfully aligned and proportioned well. There is more to a smile than just teeth!

    When gingivectomy and gingivoplasty are used during cosmetic gum contouring, a beautiful smile is usually achievable. A gingivectomy only removes excess gum tissue and can often be performed if there is a small excess of gum tissue. However, with a bigger problem, the gum tissue still looks bulky and too thick after gingivectomy. Healthy gums appear thin and thicken as they move away from the teeth. Gingivoplasty is the procedure used to thin gum tissues that are too thick If there is too much bone underneath the gums and this bone has to be removed to create a beautiful contour, then crown lengthening is performed.

    Crown lengthening is a more extensive procedure than simple gum contouring and must be well planned. This procedure involves removing and/or contouring both the gum tissues and underlying bone. In most cases, this is to lengthen the appearance of previously short teeth and to prepare for porcelain veneers or all porcelain crowns.

    A really gorgeous smile is created by a combination of several different elements. Everything, not just the teeth, should be beautifully arranged. Cosmetic dental care should start with a detailed study of a patient's smile and a personal and specific plan to improve it.

  • Instant Orthodontics

    Instant Orthodontics can transform a crooked, uneven smile to one that's straight, even and white in only two to three visits with the artistic application of porcelain veneers.

    Veneers are thin shells of fired porcelain that are placed on the front surfaces of the teeth. Offering a natural look and feel, veneers allow the cosmetic dentist to dramatically change the length, width, color and shape of a tooth. Restoring teeth to their natural beauty, veneers also resist staining, creating an enduring white, bright straight smile.

  • Tooth Colored Restorations

    Tooth fillings colored to look like a natural tooth are known as Composite Resin Dental Fillings. Composite Resin Dental Fillings are made of a plastic dental resin, are strong, durable, and make for a very natural looking smile.

    Composite resin fillings are applied in thin layers, and slowly built up to form the complete filling. A bright dental light will harden each layer before the next is applied.

    Once your filling is completed, your dentist will use a special paper, articulating paper, to adjust the height of your dental filling and that your bite remains correct. Your tooth is then polished.

  • Whitening Your Smile

    Teeth whitening, or tooth bleaching, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure designed to remove stains and discoloration, as well as lighten pigmentation within the teeth. The level of whiteness that can be achieved will depend on the level of discoloration of the teeth and how they came to be stained. Teeth that are brown or yellow due to coffee, tea, or smoking stains will generally lighten four to five shades.

    Teeth that are gray due to pigmentation within the teeth will lighten two to three shades. Teeth whitening can be done in one of two ways: in-office or at-home tooth whitening kits provided by a cosmetic dentist. Both of these methods are done under a cosmetic dentist's supervision so that the chance of negative side effects is reduced.

    Teeth can often be whitened by the several new techniques of "bleaching" available today. The most common method used is the "in-office" method where a strong bleaching agent is placed over the isolated teeth and a special light is used to assist the bleaching material lighten the teeth. This method is generally more controlled and probably better for people who have tetracycline stains or streaks on their teeth. The "home" techniques involve making trays which fit into the mouth and these are then filled with bleaching materials. When worn for a few hours day, noticeable results are seen generally within a few days to a couple weeks.

    Results vary from individual to individual, your dentist will be happy to help you decide which method works best for you. Some of the factors involved include the intensity of the stains, whether or not you have fillings or crowns on your front teeth as well as what may have caused the stains.

  • Bridges

    A dental bridge is a device used to fill the space where a tooth has fallen out or been removed. A typical dental bridge consists of a pontic (a filler tooth) that is attached to two surrounding crowns (abutments). Once complete, this bridge structure is bonded or cemented into the mouth. Without the use of a bridge, spaces in the mouth from missing teeth can cause multiple teeth to shift, lead to malocclusion (bad bite) and/or jaw problems, and may spur periodontal (gum) disease. Dental bridges safeguard the integrity of existing teeth and help maintain a healthy, vibrant smile.

  • Complete Dentures

    Complete dentures replace all of the teeth on either the upper or lower jaw. Complete dentures are made from prefabricated acrylic and sized to fit the shape of your jaw and mouth. They mimic the color and appearance of your natural teeth. The unique impression of your teeth, bite, and the shape of your jaw shape will be used to create the dentures.

    Typically, conventional complete dentures require a one-to-two month wait after the extraction of your teeth, so that your mouth and gums will have time to heal, permitting a more accurate fitting. However, if you cannot afford to be without the missing teeth even for a short time, dentures can be inserted immediately after the extraction.

    Over time your mouth will change, but your dentures will not. The jaw bones and gum can shrink or recede. You can have your dentures remade or refitted when necessary. Partial Dentures Partial dentures are removable devices that replace a few missing teeth, instead of all the teeth on the jaw line. They can be attached either by metal clasps or precision attachments. Precision attach
