Strong discoloring agents like coffee, tea, and tobacco cause surface stains. If you want to remove them, a professional polishing with a coarse but gentle cleaning paste will do the trick. Complemented by regular brushing and flossing, this technique will ensure your smile shines brighter longer.
There are two main types of cosmetic whitening. Non-vital whitening is usually best for teeth that turn dark because of root canal treatment. Non-vital whitening lightens the tooth from the inside out. Vital whitening is used for most other forms of discoloration, and you may be asked to wear a custom-fitted mouthguard filled with whitening solution for a certain amount of time each day in the convenience of your home, or you may get a whitening solution to mix with your toothpaste. All vital whitening techniques are comfortable and less costly than bonding or crowns. We may ask you to come in for a touch-up reapplication once or twice a year.
Rejuvenate your smile by replacing unsightly yellow-stained dentures with surfaces damaged by wear and tear, clenching, and grinding that leave your smile looking worn down – and you looking worn out. Bite issues can create headaches, neck, and jawjoint pain.
We can help you to decide if implants are the right solution for you. We'll review your medical history, examine your oral tissues and take impressions and x-rays. If your dental evaluation shows that you are a good candidate for the implant procedure, you can look forward to a lifetime of smiling with comfort and confidence again.
Teeth and jaws that don't line up in a good biting position can set the stage for tooth decay and gum disease. Poorly arranged teeth can trap food particles and allow plaque and tartar to build up. Chewing can be difficult and that can affect diet and digestion. Malocclusion can even cause speech problems. In infants, poorly fitting baby teeth won't give permanent teeth room to grow in straight.
The type and duration of treatment varies according to each patient's condition. We'll examine and assess your teeth and discuss a treatment plan that's best for you. Options include the "traditional" braces you're probably most familiar with: bands, wires, elastics, and removable appliances. A more-recently available option is invisible braces – a series of clear removable aligners.
Crowns are sometimes called caps because they fit over your teeth to support them and to improve their appearance. They are usually made of natural-looking translucent porcelain and are designed to blend in so well with neighboring teeth that no one can tell that you have them.
You may require a crown if a tooth has:
1. been extensively damaged by decay
2. become weakened because there is more filling than tooth
3. been fractured, compromising its structural integrity
4. become discolored and detracts from your smile
5. undergone root canal treatment
6. the role of supporting a bridge.
Would you like to speak or bite into an apple knowing your denture won't slip? How about smiling with absolute confidence or enjoying the simple pleasure of going to bed without removing your denture? Are you missing one or more teeth? Then dental implants – artificial substitutions for natural tooth roots to which replacement teeth can be attached – may be right for you.
Natural teeth need the support of the bone in your jaw. When you lose a tooth, the bone shrinks and weakens. For most people, the amount of bone loss isn't too serious – there's still enough to make a good solid foundation for a denture. But unfortunately for some patients, shrinking bone can trigger a number of problems. It can cause dentures to fit more loosely, making it hard to bite and chew. Underlying gum becomes sore and painful, and speech is sometimes impaired, and along with it, self-image.
