Restorative & Cosmetic Dental Procedures
There are numerous dental procedures available today, using advanced materials and methods. The good news is that we do them all.
Porcelain veneers — Porcelain veneers can be used to cover chips, stained or discolored teeth, close gaps and even fix mildly crooked teeth. With today’s products, very minimal tooth preparation is involved.
Dental bonding — Dental bonding is the application of high-grade composite material to the front of your teeth. This is a more affordable though less enduring alternative for porcelain veneers.
Composite fillings — All fillings are composed of tooth-colored composite material that not only looks natural but also strengthens the tooth.
Porcelain onlays and inlays — These restorations are more durable than composite fillings but do not fully cover a tooth like a crown.
Custom crowns — When a tooth is significantly damaged the most appropriate restoration is commonly a crown that encases the entire tooth above its roots. Our dentists and partner lab will custom shape and color your crown to match your surrounding teeth and enhance your smile.
Dental implant treatment — When a tooth is lost or needs to be removed, a dental implant provides a stable, safe and comfortable support for a crown. An implant can also support a multi-unit bridge. A minimal number of implants can support a complete denture.
Root canal treatment — Prior to placing a dental crown, a root canal procedure may be required to clear infection from the tooth’s roots and pack them with sealing material.
Tooth extraction — Sometimes a tooth is so damaged or infected that it must be removed. Your Smile Design dentist will help you consider the options for replacing the tooth with an implant crown or crown and bridge treatment.
Dental bridges — A dental bridge is a prosthetic appliance used to fill the space where a tooth has fallen out or been removed. One or more false teeth can be suspended between two anchoring crowns that go over the teeth on either side of the gap, a prosthesis can be placed on a dental implant, leaving the teeth on either side of the gap unaffected by the bridge placement.
Dentures — A denture is a removable prosthetic for missing teeth that covers the surrounding gum tissue. Complete (full) dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Dentures can be placed on dental implants for a stable bite and smile.
Dental implants — A dental implant is a tooth root replacement inserted in the jawbone. A prosthetic crown or bridge may be attached to an implant to provide for strong function and natural appearance. A few small implants can be placed in the jawbone to retain and stabilize a full over-denture. Dental implants are the most effective and durable method for replacing missing or removed teeth. The cost of a single implant may equal that of a bridge restoration but dental bridges typically last about only five to fifteen years before needing replacement or further treatment.
Gum recontouring — The contour of the gum line can be reshaped to create a more symmetrical and naturally esthetic appearance.
Crown lengthening — Excess gum tissue can be removed to reveal more length of teeth.
- Teeth whitening — With in-office whitening we can whiten your teeth in one convenient session. Take home maintenance kits are also available to ensure permanent results.
- Invisalign® treatment — Invisalign® treatment uses a series of removable clear aligners. These custom aligners gradually shift teeth into the desired position.
- Six Month Smiles® — The Six Month Smiles® technique moves teeth with clear brackets and wires, achieving the same result as the Invisalign method in less time.
