We offer complex dental treatment. For example, multiple missing teeth may require implants or bone augmentation. Cracked teeth may need root canals and crowns. Smile reconstruction may combine veneers, whitening and other esthetic procedures. We will evaluate your situation and make a coordinated, step-by-step plan.
Porcelain and composite veneers are used to create bright, beautiful smiles. A veneer is a thin layer bonded to the front of your tooth improving its position, color, and shape. Your smile will look better quickly without using orthodontics to move teeth.
Implant technology revolutionized the ability to replace missing teeth. An implant is a titanium post that screws into the bone and supports a crown or bridge. After an implant is placed, bone tightly grows around it and the result is an incredibly strong titanium foundation that replaces a natural tooth root. Implants are only placed in areas where there is adequate bone. Bone augmentation may be needed if not enough is present.
Inside every tooth there is a nerve and the tooth’s hollow nerve space is called the root canal. When the nerve is damaged or traumatized it may cause a tooth ache or an infection. Removing the nerve and filling the space is called a endodontic therapy. Molars and premolars treated with endodontic therapy are prone to fracture but they can be strengthened with crowns.
Complex dental care involves understanding, planning and coordination. and we care for patients who require full mouth rehabilitation for most or all of their teeth. This type of treatment requires additional time and multiple office visits before completion. Preparation and timing are critical for success.
Braces are used to straighten teeth, it’s called orthodontics. If you or your children have teeth that are rotated, overlapping, or crowded, orthodontics may be the solution. People of all ages can wear braces and today, transparent braces and braces that fit on the back of teeth mean you don’t show them when you smile.
Crown lengthening is an important step in restoring a catastrophically fractured tooth. If there is not enough tooth remaining to support a crown, this procedure can reposition the tooth’s biologic attachment so that more tooth structure is available to place a crown without irritating the bone and gum.
