Digital technology enhances your dental diagnosis and treatment. Digital dental x-rays save you time with instant image viewing. Digital sensors replace dental x-ray film for safer image production. And digital images can be enhanced for a more accurate dental treatment diagnosis.
White fillings restore tooth fractures and the damage caused by tooth decay. Made of the strong composite material selected to match the shade of your teeth, it’s layered in the prepared cavity and hardened using a specialized light. Finishing and polishing restores the shape of your tooth and minimizes future staining.
Dental veneers bonded to the front surface of your teeth can correct damage and wear. With minimal preparation, laminate veneers are used to improve your smile and restore your cracked, chipped, damaged, or discolored teeth. For the patients who desire to enhance their smile, laminate veneers offer long lasting solution to achieve highly esthetic and predictable results. Made of strong porcelain, laminate veneers are stain resistant.
Inlays and onlays are used to restore the teeth with large cavities where conventional fillings will not offer long lasting solution. They are custom made of a strong ceramic material to match the color of your teeth and are cemented into the prepared cavity to protect remaining tooth structure and provide long term esthetic results.
Porcelain crowns are custom made to cover damaged teeth and to restore the original form, function and esthetics. Damage caused by decay or trauma compromises the integrity of the remaining tooth and may cause fractures that often lead to tooth loss. Crowns encircle the remaining tooth providing necessary protection and strength. Your crown is designed to look and function like your natural tooth.
The degree of periodontal disease varies from simple gum inflammation to a serious condition that may lead to tooth loss. Gum disease can be treated. The main goal of treatment is to control the infection. The treatment may depend on the extent of the disease.
Oral trauma and tooth decay can lead to a deeper infection of an untreated tooth. During root canal treatment the infected nerve of the tooth is removed, canals cleaned and sealed. Since the tooth may be damaged by decay or trauma it usually requires protection in the form of a crown or onlay.
Some missing teeth can be replaced with a removable prosthesis that restores appearance and oral functions that were lost.
