When you meet someone for the first time, your smile and teeth are usually the first thing they will notice. Since you never get a second chance to make a first impression, it is important to keep your teeth looking as good as possible. Fortunately, there are many restorative and cosmetic dental procedures that are offered by our office that can fix any problem you might have.
A crown is a tooth-like covering placed over an existing tooth that has been specially prepared by the dentist. Crowns help to strengthen and restore function and/or improve the appearance of your natural teeth. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
CEREC™ (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) is a system that offers the advantage of restoring damaged teeth in one office visit. In a single session, you will leave with a permanent crown, onlay, inlay or veneer. This means no temporaries, less drilling, fewer injections, and perhaps most importantly, less time out of your hectic schedule for dental care.
A Bridge is a custom-made device anchored to neighboring natural teeth, which replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to hold the bridge in place. This treatment restores lost teeth and supports remaining teeth; restores and maintains natural bite; prevents stress on natural teeth; improves your speech, smile and chewing ability; and helps prevent tilting and drifting of neighboring teeth.
Veneers are very thin shells that are attached to the front part of teeth. They are often made of porcelain or composite resin. Generally, veneers take at least two dental visits to apply. Veneers can help with a variety of issues such as worn, crooked or discoloured teeth. They can also be used to alter the size of teeth or repair unwanted spacing.
