Veneers

This is one way to quickly get that beautiful smile. Veneers are a thin shell of porcelain or resin that is bonded to the surface of the teeth. This can change their shape, shade, and position to improve the cosmetics of your teeth and smile. They are also used to replace and restore any lost tooth structure where indicated.

Your dentist will do a complete examination of your teeth to determine if veneers are ideal for you. Veneers often provide the opportunity to dramatically transform the aesthetics of your teeth and smile.

Veneers can enhance the shape of your teeth, make your teeth as white as you want, and give you the smile you have always desired. Additionally, Veneers are bonded to your tooth structure, which gives them strength.

Removable Dentures

Though many advances have been made in the field of dentistry, loss of teeth is still an ongoing problem In the United States, 26% of adults between the ages of sixty-five and seventy-five have lost all of their teeth.

Currently, there are a number of options available for people who have lost their teeth. One of the most versatile and affordable is a set of removable dentures.

Standard Full Dentures: Standard full dentures are ones that comprise a full set of upper and lower teeth. This type of denture uses suction to stay in place. They are made of a pliable material which makes suction easy. However, it is for this reason that standard full dentures require routine visits to the dentist. Being pliable, the dentures are susceptible to shrinkage, thus creating an ill-fitting prosthetic that will result in the atrophy of the jawbone.

Inlays & Onlays

Inlays are similar to fillings, except that they are made in a lab. The objective is the repair of chipped or decayed teeth. Indirect fabrication means that the tooth is prepared for the inlay, an impression (mold) of the prepared tooth is made and poured in dental stone, and the restoration for the tooth is made in a laboratory on the stone replica rather than the tooth itself.

Dental Extractions

Some cases require an intervention to prevent an oral wrap, for example, cordal extraction when this tooth growth wrong.

Simple Dental Extraction

This tooth removal procedure can be accomplished from above the gums using a traditional elevator and forceps instruments. It is prescribed when teeth are seriously decayed or damaged for trauma.

Surgical Dental Extraction

Surgical tooth extractions (also called “open extractions”) are tooth removal procedures in which surgical access is required to completely remove a tooth. In some cases require cut teeth into pieces.

Crown

A crown (cap) is a restoration that is placed on teeth that have lost a lot of their structure. There are various types of crowns, ranging from full porcelain to full metal. Your dentist will explain the advantages and disadvantages of each kind for you.

The process of making a crown includes a number of steps, beginning with preparing and taking impressions of the tooth/teeth involved. A temporary crown or bridge is then placed on your teeth. Meanwhile, the impressions are sent to the lab where a mold of the teeth is poured and the work begins. The completed work is sent back to the office; after inspection and any necessary adjustments, it is cemented onto your teeth.

Bridges & Implants

Replacement of missing teeth with fixed bridgework preserves the normal bite relationship between the teeth, allowing for better-chewing force distribution. Dental bridges can be made from a variety of metals, porcelain, ceramic, tooth-colored resin, or combinations of these materials.

Implement bridges prevent the movement or drifting of other teeth, fix the chewing muscles forces. Your dentistry will explain the treatment details according to your needs.

Dental implants may be thought of as replacement tooth roots. Although they are available in many shapes and sizes, depending on the specific problem to be solved, by far the most common type in use today is the “root-form” implant. Dental implants are among the most significant advancements in the history of dentistry for their versatility at replacing one tooth, several teeth—even all of the teeth.
