If you’re uncomfortable about the appearance of your teeth because they are stained, chipped or uneven, then dental veneers are the answer for you. Porcelain veneers are super-thin, custom-made laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. Using these, we can instantly fix a variety of issues which include chips, cracks, gaps, stains, or uneven teeth. You don’t even need extensive dental work and get immediate results. Veneers are what give many Hollywood movie stars that dazzling smile you see on the silver screen.
The procedure usually involves removing a very thin amount of the outermost layer of the tooth, called the enamel. Molds are then inserted to take impressions of the teeth. Temporary veneers are then placed for the patient to wear while the permanent veneers are being made. The whole procedure is usually completed within one or two sessions depending on how many veneers are required to get the desired results.
Chipped teeth are perhaps the most common dental issue. While a chipped tooth can vary widely in terms of size and damage, any type of chipping deserves immediate attention. Although a small chip will most likely not cause pain, you should contact a dentist to make sure there is no other damage to the tooth’s internal structure which may cause further problems. Our dentists will be able to rule out accompanying cracks or internal dental problems while examining your chipped tooth.
Treatment varies according to the amount of damage. Many procedures are now available to correct chipped teeth, and can be performed in a single visit. Depending on your need, we can use cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, or porcelain crowns to correct the flaws.
When one or more teeth are not aligned properly in relation to the neighboring and opposing teeth, it is called rotated teeth. This usually results in compromised contact with adjacent teeth and creates a location for food blockage between the teeth, which may lead to gingival damage. This condition can be a cause for the onset of tooth decay and other related problems. It can also affect the overall appearance of a person’s smile.
Treatment options may vary depending on the patient’s age, time constraints and other factors, and include Invisalign, porcelain veneers, or Pearl Ultra-thin Veneers.
Bruxism is the technical term for grinding and clenching of jaws that may cause facial pain and cause the enamel to wear off overtime. People who grind and clench, called bruxers, unintentionally bite down too hard at inappropriate times, such as in their sleep. In addition to grinding teeth, bruxers also may bite their fingernails, pencils and chew the inside of their cheek. People usually aren’t diagnosed with bruxism until it is too late because so many people don’t realize they have the habit. Others mistakenly believe that their teeth must touch at all times. About one in four people suffer from bruxism.
Bruxism can either directly or indirectly cause many problems. Grinding can cause teeth to become painful or loose. Patients can grind away parts of their teeth, leaving them with worn surfaces or fractured enamel. Over time teeth become sensitive and patients may experience jaw pain and headaches. Forceful biting when not eating may cause the jaw to move out of proper balance.
There are a number of ways to treat bruxism. We shall determine which single treatment or combination of treatments is right for you. When stress is the major cause of bruxism, you basically need to find ways to relax. If you have difficulty handling stress, you may need to seek counseling and may prescribe muscle relaxants to relax jaw muscles. We many times can prescribe a night guard, which prevents grinding from occurring during sleep. To help alleviate muscle pain, therapy may be needed.
Silver or Mercury Fillings
If you’ve had amalgam fillings in the past, you may want to visit us! Amalgam fillings have had a high percentage of mercury or silver in them. These silver-colored or dark fillings have been the restorative method of choice for many years due to their low cost, ease of application, strength, and durability.
In recent years, however, a number of factors have led to a steady decline in their use. Amalgams contain mercury, which can cause serious health conditions over time and contaminates the environment. From a purely cosmetic point of view, the metallic color does not blend with the natural color of the teeth and may be an important consideration when using these fillings for front teeth.
On one hand, amalgam or mercury fillings can last for a long time, but on the other hand, they can also weaken the tooth structure over time as they corrode and leak, leading to fractures and recurrent decay.
Treatment options to replace old, defective amalgams depend on the extent of the restoration and range from resins or tooth colored fillings, to inlays or onlays, to porcelain crowns.
