We specialize in Cosmetic Dentistry but we do so much more.
Cosmetic Dentistry, when provided by an experienced and trained cosmetic dentist consists of treatment(s) that improves your smile as well as your dental health. Cosmetic Dentistry includes various procedures such as tooth or teeth whitening, teeth straightening, direct restorations (composite fillings), indirect restorations (porcelain veneers or crowns), and replacement of teeth (dental implants). These methods can result in a beautiful and natural healthy looking smile with whiter teeth in just two or three visits to the dentist.
Periodontal treatment is necessary when various conditions affect the health of your gums and the regions of your jawbone that hold your teeth in place. Retaining your teeth is directly dependent on proper periodontal care and maintenance. Healthy gums enhance the appearance of your teeth, like a frame around a beautiful painting. When your gums become unhealthy, they can either recede or become swollen and red. In later stages, the supporting bone is destroyed and your teeth will shift, loosen, or fall out. These changes not only affect your ability to chew and speak. They also spoil your smile. Adults over the age of 35 lose more teeth to gum diseases than from cavities. Three out of four adults are affected at some time in their life. The best way to prevent cavities and Periodontal disease is by daily through tooth brushing and flossing techniques and regular professional examinations and cleanings.
Tooth loss can have a far-reaching effect on your dental health and personal appearance because when you lose one or more teeth, the remaining teeth can drift out of position and lead to problems such as more teeth loss, decay and gum disease. Due to new technology, it is possible to replace missing teeth and implant a working and natural looking tooth. This is a surgical procedure done under local anesthesia and involves the periodontist implanting a small metal anchor right into the jaw bone for security and stability. A crown is later placed on that post and you once again have a normally functioning tooth.
