Dental implants are a more secure and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They can be better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth. While implants are a secure solution that remain in place and can only be removed by a dentist, the entire implant process does take a few months to complete.
Bridges and Crowns
Bridges and/or Crowns may be required if you have one or more teeth that are missing or damaged. A crown covers the entirety of a tooth that may not be corrected sufficiently through other treatment. A bridge is a non-removable section of teeth that may be recommended if you’re missing multiple teeth. With proper care bridges and crowns can last a lifetime.
Veneers are an excellent way to redesign and reshape your entire mouth. Veneers are a very thin ceramic shell that covers your existing tooth structure. In placing these new veneers on your teeth, you are able to fix the look of issues such as staining, cracked teeth, spaces, misaligned teeth, chipped teeth and many other issues.
Keeping our teeth their whitest is a lot harder than it sounds. With all the coffee, wine, smoking and other foods that have the ability to stain our teeth on a daily basis, even proper maintenance sometimes leaves them a little lackluster. Teeth whitening is an excellent way to restore the natural color of your teeth or even make them whiter than your natural color if you would like.
Bonding and White-Fillings
Bonding is a popular method to enhance the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding can be used to correct cracks or gaps in teeth, as a filling after a cavity has been removed, or to cover up stains or discolored teeth.
