Bonding & White Fillings

Bonding is a popular method to fill in or cover up defects in teeth with a white composite resin. An adhesive gel is placed on the tooth and the resin is molded and sculpted over it, then hardened with UV light and polished.

Bonding can be used to fill teeth after the removal of cavities, or to cover stains, cracks, discolorations, chips, or gaps in teeth. It is a technological improvement over highly-visible silver amalgam fillings and applications usually lasts more than 10 years.

Dental bridges are a way to replace missing teeth by creating a segment that anchors to two existing teeth to “bridge” the gap between them.

Made from porcelain, gold, allows, or metal, bridges require the two teeth on either side of the missing tooth to be filed down into “abutments” that will hold the bridge in place, much like a pair of crowns with a third tooth joining them from the middle.

The bridge itself will be created in a specialized lab while a temporary bridge is put in its place. Once the final bridge is put in place, you will need to eat soft foods for a few days while the bridge settles, but after that, it will function and feel normal.

If you are missing a tooth, please strongly consider having it replaced. Not only are there aesthetic disadvantage from the missing tooth, but that gap could also harm your mouth and jaw and make it difficult to eat or speak properly.

Cancer Screening

The purpose of cancer screenings is to check for signs of cancer before any symptoms become evident. This allows the dentist to find potential cancer cells as early as possible when they are most treatable. While the tests can be used to scan for multiple types of cancer, there is no set or standard screening test for oral cancers.

The exam often includes looking for lesions in the mouth that may include areas of leukoplakia, or an abnormal patch of white cells, or erythroplakia, an abnormal patch of red cells. While these patches do not necessarily mean cancer they can potentially become cancerous.

If lesions are found, procedures used to find oral or oropharyngeal cancer may include fluorescence staining or a brush biopsy.

If your dentist does a cancer screening, it does not mean that they are specifically concerned you may have cancer. It is simply a precautionary measure to cover all bases.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry is used for anything from color corrections to replacing missing teeth or covering cracks. The purpose of cosmetic dentistry is to make sure you feel proud and confident in your smile and in your smell. With modern advances in dentistry, the scope of what can be done is always growing.

Crown Lengthening

If you notice that your smile is looking a little gummy, crown lengthening may be the best solution for you. Crown lengthening is the process by which the gum and bone tissue are reshaped so the proper amount of tooth can be made visible.

Crown lengthening is often used as a way to clear up decay that can happen below the gumline. By moving the gum and bone, a dentist can reach the part of the tooth in need of help. This will leave your smile happier and healthier than ever before.

If your tooth is starting to crack, weaken, or visibly decay, but it remains firmly in place in your gums, bonding or filling may not be sufficient to solve the problem

During the crown procedure, the original tooth is filed down to the enamel and then capped using the crown. A crown is a cap made of porcelain, gold, or porcelain fused with metal. It will appear regularly in your smile but will replace the damaged part of your tooth.

Dental Hygiene/ Professional Dental Cleaning

A professional dental cleaning at least twice a year can improve your oral health, reports the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), an organization of general dentists dedicated to continuing dental education.

The AGD strongly recommends that a dentist or hygienist perform a dental cleaning every six months. This professional dental cleaning reinforces the home-care oral health regimen of brushing and flossing and gives the dentist an opportunity to locate areas in the mouth that may need special attention.

During a dental cleaning, you’ll receive diagnostic and preventive services from your dentist as well as any needed educational information.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most permanent and effective solutions to a missing tooth. The process requires that a screw is fashioned to the jaw bone to create a sturdy foundation for the artificial tooth that will be fixed to it. While this is a surgical process that requires making an incision on the gum line, they are a more fixed alternative to a bridge and do not require anything done to the teeth around them

Dental implants can take between 3 and 6 months to heal and adjust to your mouth, so during that time a temporary crown can be placed before the final tooth is once the gum is healed.

Dentures are a removable replacement for missing teeth and can replace both full and partial sets of teeth. You can smile confidently again with the help of a custom, natural-looking full or partial denture created just for you. Dentures are a great solution if you are missing some teeth because the denture fills the gaps in your smile and helps make talking and eating easier.

For full sets, any remaining teeth are removed. There are two common approaches for full sets.

With Conventional Full Dentures, all the teeth are removed and the tissue is given time to heal. This typically takes several months and the patient is without teeth during that time. Once the healing is complete, the dentures are created.

With Immediate Full Dentures measurements are performed before the teeth are removed, and dentures are ready immediately afterward. The gum tissue will change shape as it heals and the dentures will need to be tightened later.

The extraction of wisdom teeth is a fairly common procedure. In ancient times, humans would typically lose a few teeth and the remaining teeth would shift to fill in the gap. The wisdom teeth were located in the back of the jaw intended to be deployed in an opening.

Modern dentistry has prevented that tooth loss, so a new problem has come out: Mature wisdom teeth with no place to go start trying to breach the surface at an angle or under existing teeth. Wisdom teeth are also vulnerable to infection and may cause pain and swelling.

For extraction, an incision is made in the gum and the tooth is pulled out. In some cases, the tooth may need to be cut into segments and removed in pieces.

Wisdom teeth can be removed individually or all four may be taken out at once. The patient can be placed completely out or have a local anesthetic. Either way, the patient will receive painkillers for after the procedure and will need a ride home.

Hard Tissue Laser

A hard tissue laser procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that removes cavities while maintaining healthy enamel and dentin. The procedure requires no need for a local anesthetic and provides a more comfortable experience for patients. It is especially helpful for younger kids who are new to the idea of dentistry and afraid of certain procedures.

Because the healthy parts of the tooth structure are maintained using a hard tissue laser, it provides for a more healthy mouth in the long run.

Implant Restorations

The use of a dental implant allows you to maintain a healthy, full smile, even after tooth loss. Because this procedure is a two step process, the second step of placing a tooth replacement (crown) has to be done several months following the implant.

Out office will finish off your new tooth and send you on your way as though you never lost a tooth to begin with.

Intraoral Cameras and Photography

Intraoral cameras allow dentists to get a close-up view of problems with the teeth or tissue in your mouth, including fractures, lesions, plaque buildup, inflamed tissue, and more. Doctors can examine and oral cavity and detect any precautionary symptoms that could indicate a health risk such as oral lesions or eating disorders.

These cameras make it possible to capture and manipulate an image in the oral cavity and save it to the patient’s files. The images can be sent electronically to dental laboratories as well for a more accurate match in color if the solution to the problem includes crown, veneers, or partial dentures. These images and records can be printed out for the patient to take home and consider when pondering their suggested treatment plans.

This camera makes it possible to share with their patients exactly what they are seeing and what is wrong but through the file records and on the screen. The intraoral camera allows patients to view the potential problem in their mouth with their dentist and collaborate on the best treatment plan.

KöR Teeth Whitening

KöR Teeth Whitening is the first line of refrigerated whitening gels that promises effectiveness and longevity in your tooth color. Their ability to be refrigerated keeps the molecules in the gel from breaking down before being applied to the teeth.

In order for teeth whitening to be effective, the gels need to have extensive time to diffuse into the microstructures on the teeth. However, because of continuous contamination by saliva in the mouth, most gels are only diffusing through the teeth for around half an hour.

KöR Whitening gels are designed specifically to seal out saliva, and when combined with the potent nature they maintain by being refrigerated, they allow for 6 to 10 hours of whitening.

These whitening trays are designed to rejuvenate the enamel and with proper tooth care, they exhibit long-term results and whiter teeth.

Mouth Guards

Mouth Guards are designed to protect the gums and teeth from injury and wear of the teeth. They are oftentimes used in sports to prevent injury or tooth loss. Mouth guards can also be used to alleviate snoring and are a solution to bruxism.

Bruxism is the grinding of your teeth while you sleep. This involuntary action can damage your teeth, do harm to your jaw, and result in headaches. Night guards are custom-fitted to the mouth to protect your teeth from having contact with each other during the night.

Professional Dental Cleaning

According to the Academy of General Dentistry, a professional dental cleaning twice every year can drastically improve your oral health. Not only does it reinforce the dental routine of brushing and flossing your teeth, but it gives a professional the chance to locate any problem areas in your mouth or areas that may need special attention.

It is strongly recommended that you receive a professional cleaning once every six months in order to preserve good dental hygiene and a healthy knowledge about dental health. A dentist will provide you with educational information about oral health as well as diagnostic and preventative services that you lack at home.

Root Canals

Throughout the years, root canals have become notorious for being an arduous and painful procedure. The good news is that thanks to the ever progressing medical technology, the procedure has become much quicker and less painful.

Sometimes, when teeth get infected, the nerve endings in the root of the teeth need to be removed to prevent loss of parts of the jaw bone. This type of procedure that deals with nerves at the root of the teeth is known as endodontics.

During the root canal procedure, a local anesthetic is applied to numb the pain. The dentist will then drill into the tooth to create an opening that leads to the nerve. Using this opening, the dentist will remove the infected tissue and generally replace the tooth with a crown. While there will be some pain after the procedure, it can be treated with over the counter medication.

While good brushing and flossing will remove food particles and plaque from the smooth surfaces of teeth, the toothbrush bristles do not reach into the grooves of the teeth. A sealant is used to seal out the plaque from these areas and protect them.

A sealant is made of a composite material, most often applied to the chewing surfaces of the six and twelve year molars. The process of applying sealants is fairly quick and simple. The sealant is painted onto the biting surface of your teeth and cured with ultraviolet light. This allows the material to bond and harden directly to the tooth so that it will hold up under the force of chewing for years.

Sealants can be worn down over time or pulled out by chewy or sticky foods. During your regular dental visits, your dentist will check on the sealants and reapply them if necessary.

The process of getting veneers typically takes about three dental visits over the course of three weeks. These consist of the consultation, the evaluation of the teeth, and the placement.

Veneers are thin ceramic shells, oftentimes made of porcelain, that hug an existing tooth to correct their appearance. They can be used to cover stains, cracks, chips, or teeth that are poorly spaced or misaligned.

It typically takes two weeks for the fabrication, so during that period, temporary veneers can be placed. For more information on how veneers work and the benefits of getting them, talk to your dentist.
