Veneers

Veneers can mask undesirable defects, such as teeth stained by tetracycline and damage due to an injury or as a result of a root-canal procedure. They are ideal for masking discolored fillings in front teeth. They can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth, including repairing small chips or cracks, filling unsightly spaces, making teeth even and uniform, and covering severe dullness or discoloration.

Dentures

When extraction of all teeth is necessary, dentures can provide a second chance at a beautiful smile and help to maintain nutrition, maintain the shape of your face and improve speech. Sometimes complete dentures are not necessary, and partial dentures can replace multiple missing teeth, secured to your remaining teeth with clasps. With immediate dentures, you can have a full set of teeth while you are waiting for your gums to heal and your bone to realign after having teeth removed. No matter which kind of dentures you choose, you can be assured to receive natural-looking dentures that match your facial structure and desired tooth color.

Is a Dental Implant Right for me?

is a dental implant right for me - image of abutment and actual implant

Many of our patients ask about dental implants and whether they are candidates for this procedure. A full understanding of what implants are, and where and when they are indicated, is important when making a decision about whether dental implants are the right solution.

What is an Implant?

Implants, by themselves, are not tooth replacements. They are frequently referred to as root forms, because they replace the root portion of the missing tooth. The supra-structure, consisting of an abutment and crown, is what the patient eventually envisions as the final step of the implant process. This abutment and crown are connected to the implant with either screws or cement to complete the procedure.  You can find more information on our Dental Implant page…
