Restoration & Aesthetic Dentistry
This is the dental specialty that involves repairing decayed or fractured teeth and giving that beautiful smile.
Our staff is trained to provide patients with the knowledge they need to prevent dental diseases such as Periodontal (gum) disease, decay of teeth and the effects of clenching and grinding of the dentition. Let us help you! Re-care appointments every 6 months strongly is suggested.
This type of treatment is about saving teeth, rather than removing them. Historically, the main way to treat painful teeth was by extracting them, but thanks to modern dental techniques, we are able to save teeth more often. The infected nerve is removed and the tooth is generally crowned. This is a safe and painless procedure in our office.
A crown, also known as a “cap” and which completely covers the existing tooth when a normal restoration is not sufficient. All porcelain crowns in front of your mouth restores the teeth and gives you a new and youthful looking smile.
One of the easiest procedures to improve one’s smile is through tooth whitening. The most effective and safest methods for whitening teeth is with a dentist supervised whitening treatment. In the office the patient will have a custom bleaching tray fabricated specifically for that individual.
Removal of non-savable teeth in a pain free manor.
Straight teeth not only make for a beautiful smile, but they also promote good health. Teeth that are properly aligned and straight can help reduce the incidence gastrointestinal disease, heart disease and other health related conditions. Remember, straight teeth can allow a person to chew more effectively, aiding in proper digestion. There are options for treatment of mal-aligned teeth, either with traditional wire braces or a more state-of-the-art technique using clear wireless appliances such as a device called Invisalign. Next Generation Dentists are certified Invisalign providers. These aligners are gentle plastic wireless removable appliances in which most people will not even know you are wearing. These appliances are removed to eat, brush your teeth or floss only. In most patient cases the cost is comparable to that of metal braces. The dentist will have to evaluate each patient case by case to decide which treatment is more suitable for the patient. The results can be dramatic!
A sealant is a plastic material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of healthy, cavity-free back teeth including primary and permanent molars and pre-molars where decay occurs most often. The coatings act as a barrier, protecting the decay-prone areas from plaque and acid attacks. Pits and fissures are depressions and grooves in the chewing surfaces on the back teeth. These chewing surfaces have the highest risk of tooth decay. Sealants are effective as long as the sealants remain intact. They are easy and painless to apply.
