Porcelain crowns and dental bridges can provide durable, natural-looking solutions for a number of common dental issues. These treatments can restore functionality, strength, and appearance for missing, damaged, or decayed teeth.
A porcelain crown is a tooth-colored, custom-made “cap” that is bonded to an existing tooth. A crown is typically placed over a decayed tooth following a root canal, and it is often used to add structural support and enhanced aesthetics to a damaged tooth. Crowns also serve as the final touches to dental implants.
A dental bridge is designed to fill gaps where there are missing teeth. Dental bridges are composed of one or more artificial teeth that are bonded to porcelain crowns placed on the adjacent teeth. This missing teeth replacement option can restore the ability to bite, eat, drink, and speak normally, not to mention its aesthetic benefits. Bridges can be good alternatives to dental implants for patients who might not be candidates for that procedure.
Both porcelain crowns and dental bridges offer a natural-looking, long-term option to improve the form and function of your teeth.
Cosmetic dental bonding is one of the fastest, easiest ways to improve small dental imperfections, such as cracks, gaps, chips, malalignment, and discoloration. While porcelain veneers may be necessary for major issues, cosmetic bonding can be a great solution for minor dental problems. This procedure can create a strong, balanced, and beautiful smile.
First, Dr. Matthews will apply a special cleaning agent on your affected teeth to create an adequate surface for the bonding material to adhere to. Next, your dentist will apply a custom-made dental resin that matches your natural teeth. A laser or LED light will harden the material, and your dentist will polish and shape your teeth for a beautiful, natural-looking, renewed smile. The process is virtually painless, quick, and can usually be completed in one office visit with immediate results. Cosmetic bonding can minimize minor dental imperfections for a rejuvenated, functional, and radiant smile.
Traditionally, silver amalgam fillings were the standard for repairing and filling cavities. However, amalgam fillings contain mercury, a substance that has been found to be harmful to the environment and to have health risks. The federal government has strict hazardous waste disposal regulations for amalgam fillings, so there is no need to put the substance into our own bodies. Even a small amount of mercury may be dangerous. Dr. Matthews committed to providing the healthiest and safest method of treatment, so we only use tooth-colored porcelain fillings for our patients.
In addition to being safer, tooth-colored fillings also offer a natural-looking cosmetic benefit. Also, amalgam fillings can break down over time, permitting bacteria to return underneath the filling and result in recurring cavities. Composite fillings are usually more durable than amalgam and more resistant to future cracking and cavities. By avoiding amalgam fillings and choosing composite fillings instead, we can help protect your health and the environment in addition to restoring your natural-looking, healthy smile.
A dazzling, radiant smile can help you feel more confident and make a lasting first impression in your daily interactions. If you are struggling with several dental imperfections such as stains, chips, gaps, crooked teeth, or missing teeth, there is no reason for you to feel embarrassed by your smile.
If you haven’t taken care of your dental issues because you think you will have to endure unattractive metal braces, painful procedures, and a long, uncomfortable process, you may be in luck. We can help you create the smile you’ve always dreamed about safely and relatively quickly through a smile makeover. Our dentists can combine a variety of cosmetic and restorative dental treatments, including teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings, porcelain veneers, and dental implants for a complete smile makeover. Let us help you create the smile you’ve always desired.
If you are unhappy with your smile due to cracks or chips in your teeth, gaps, discoloration, or poor alignment, porcelain veneers can be a great way to improve your smile’s appearance. They offer a natural-looking solution to help brighten and reshape your smile. We offer a variety of options at our practice, including Lumineers®, CEREC® veneers, and composite veneers. Your specific aesthetic wishes, as well as the color, position, and bite of your teeth will help us to create an individualized treatment plan. Your veneers will be custom-made to best fit your needs.
Over time, many things we consume can contribute to yellow, brown, or gray stains on the teeth. Wine, coffee, tobacco use, and the natural aging process are just a few causes of discolored teeth. We can help brighten your smile by several shades. We offer the Day White® take-home system. Cosmetic bleaching can be one of the most cost effective, quickest ways to dramatically improve and brighten your smile. Depending on your cosmetic needs and lifestyle, Dr. Matthews can determine which treatment plan is best for you to get rid of the stains and discoloration on your teeth for a whiter, brighter, healthier-looking smile.
