Prosthodontists are trained to offer a wide range of services specializing in restoring or replacing teeth. We are able to meet the needs of each individual patient because we have an excellent understanding of both clinical and dental laboratory procedures.
Even a subtle change in your smile helps you project an image of self-confidence and high personal esteem. When you feel good about yourself, it shows in your appearance.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular due to their simplicity and versatility.
Inlays/onlays can be made of porcelain, gold, or composite resin. These pieces are bonded to the damaged area of the tooth. An inlay (which is similar to a filling) is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction (similar to the inlay), but extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.
Bonding is an alternative to veneers and can be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or misarranged.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
Dentures – Replacing these missing teeth will benefit your appearance as well as your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles can sag, making a person look older. Dentures will also help your ability to eat and speak.
Bleaching – Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.
A bridge a device used to replace missing teeth attaches artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth, called abutment teeth. Bridges are either permanently attached (fixed bridges) or they can be removable.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme and may be beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain “pasted on gold” crowns to make the smile appear like new.
