Best Restorative Options for Chipped Teeth
Posted on 2/15/2019 by Alyce
When we were children, it was not all that unusual for us to chip a baby tooth. Lots of kids chip their teeth playing sports, or during a fall. If you chip a tooth during childhood, it is not that big of a deal because your baby teeth fall out and are replaced by adult teeth. However, if you chip your teeth during adulthood, you have to live with it. The good news is, you don't have to. There are many restorative options we can give you if you chip a tooth. Dental Fillings Sometimes, a tooth can be fixed by just putting a filling on the surface of the tooth in order to fill in a hole in your tooth. Fillings are best used when the chip is in the middle of the tooth, or when the chip is close to the gumline. Dental Crowns Sometimes, the chip is so large, we can't fix it with a filling. This often happens when there has been trauma to the tooth area due to an accident. In those cases, we can use a crown in order to restore the tooth to the right size and color to match the rest of your teeth. Dental Bridges Dental bridges can replace multiple chipped teeth at one time, especially if some of the teeth have broken off completely. Dental bridges usually consist of two teeth with crowns that act as anchors for a partial denture. Many people choose dental bridges, because they are cost effective. Dental Implants We often use dental implants because they are often the best option for our clients. Dental implants are the closest thing to a real tooth that we can do. Because the implant screws directly into the jawbone, it continues to stimulate the jawbone so that it doesn't deteriorate. If you have chipped teeth, give us a call, and let us tell you about all of your options to restore your beautiful smile....

Main Types of Dental Implants When it comes to choosing dental implants, there are generally two main types from which you can select: We can help you determine which dental implant is right for your unique needs. Your Dental Implant Consultation To determine if dental implants are right for you, the first step is to have a consultation. We will thoroughly examine your gums and teeth, evaluating the quantity and density of the jawbone. In some cases, this may involve x-ray imaging to ensure you have enough bone structure to place the implants. Based on the health of your mouth, your oral hygiene routine, and your commitment to follow post-care instructions, we can advise on the treatment plan that will work best for you.

Top Restorative Procedures For Your Teeth
Posted on 1/15/2019 by Alyce
Restoring your teeth once something goes wrong gives you the ability to have a confident smile. There are many procedural possibilities you have access to, depending on what the issues are with your smile. Here are some of the top procedures to restore your teeth. Which would benefit you most? Teeth Whitening As you age, your teeth begin to darken naturally. Besides aging, tooth stains can be caused by day to day habits such as drinking coffee, tea or prolonged smoking. Teeth whitening is performed by bleaching the teeth to make them whiter. Implants and Bridges Implants and bridges are made to replace the teeth that are missing. Implants are artificial roots that are used to hold together the replaced teeth. Bridges, on the other hand, are false teeth that are contained in position by the neighboring teeth. Root Canals A root canal procedure is done to treat abscessed teeth. The process involves cleaning the insides of a decayed or cracked tooth to remove all infection, filling the spaces and lastly sealing the tooth. Braces This is a corrective procedure that is done to correct all bite-related imperfections and the alignment of teeth. Dental braces are installed on the teeth to apply steady pressure that will put the teeth into a more favorable position. Veneers Veneers are made of thin shell-like porcelain, crafted and customized to your perfect fit. A cosmetic dentist determines the size, shape, and color of your teeth to make the veneers appear more natural. Once prepared, the dentist carefully sticks them to the surface of your teeth. Gum Surgery Gum disease (periodontitis) is a bacterial infection that affects both the gums and teeth. Gum disease starts as gingivitis, which is more reversible. When it proceeds to periodontitis, you risk losing both your gums and teeth. At that advanced stage, a dentist will schedule a gum surgery altogether to restore your oral health. Sealants Sealants are barriers that are applied on the ridged surface of molars and pre-molars to prevent tooth decay. They protect the teeth by keeping away the disease-causing bacteria. Bonding Bonding is a dental restorative procedure undertaken to restore decayed, chipped, discolored and fractured teeth. This procedure uses a composite resin that resembles the tooth enamel in color. Bonding can also close the gaps in the teeth. This corrective procedure can be done in the dentist's office because it does not require complex lab work.
