Cosmetic & Restorative Dentistry

Cosmetic Dentistry

In the past decade there has been a dramatic interest in cosmetic dentistry.  We all realize that having a healthy, bright, beautiful smile enhances our appearance and allows us to smile with confidence.  Thanks to the advances in modern cosmetic dentistry, we are able to improve our teeth and smiles with quick, painless and surprisingly affordable treatments.

Cosmetic dental treatments can:

  • Change the size, shape, and alignment of certain teeth.
  • Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
  • Improve or correct bites.
  • Lighten or brighten the color of teeth.
  • Repair decayed, broken, cracked, or chipped teeth.
  • Replace missing teeth.
  • Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.

Remember, your smile speaks before you even say a word!


Restorative Dentistry

It’s great news that the incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness.  However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health.  Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.

Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment.  Providing you with excellent care is our number one priority when creating your beautiful smile.

Reasons for restorative dentistry:

  • Enhance your smile.
  • Fill in unattractive spaces between teeth.
  • Improve or correct an improper bite.
  • Prevent the loss of a tooth.
  • Relieve dental pain.
  • Repair damaged and decayed teeth.
  • Replace missing teeth.
  • Replace old, unattractive dental treatments.
  • Restore normal eating and chewing.

Remember to give your teeth the attention they need today!


 

iTero Digital Impressions

The iTero Scanner is one of the most exciting achievements in dentistry to date.  By using the iTero Scanner, we can create a digital map of your mouth. We then use the images collected to create crowns, bridges, and surface in-lays for you. This technology helps dental professionals perform these procedures in a precise manner, while eliminating the need for inconvenient alternatives that can otherwise be bothersome to the patient.

In the past, impressions of a patient's oral cavity was often a nuisance as it was both time consuming and uncomfortable. Traditionally, large metal trays were used with liquid impression material against the upper and lower jar. Patients were often concerned with the danger of gagging or swallowing the excess impression "goop."

The iTero Scanner significantly alleviates these concerns. Our patients do not have to endure any further discomfort or anxiety while we take their impression. Now the entire activity is conducted digitally, eliminating the need for liquid impression material.  After we have finished taking snapshots of your entire oral cavity, we then create a 3-dimensional landscape using the digital photography. The technology is much more convenient than the old method and has been found to be even more accurate than using liquid plaster.
