Clear braces and clear aligners, such as Invisalign™ and SureSmile™, treatment consists of a series of clear plastic trays that you change approximately every two weeks. Each aligner is independently made with precision to slowly move your teeth into a different position. Clear aligners can give you the straight beautiful smile you have always wanted.
Ceramic, porcelain, or metal crowns are life-like dental restorations used to “cap” or protect a weakened tooth such as excessive wear, decay, fracture, or after a root canal. Your new tooth is custom designed to match and function just like the natural tooth, while protecting and strengthening remaining tooth structure. Dental crowns are used to restore the tooth’s shape, size, and strength. Dental crowns can also be used to simply improve appearance of the tooth.
A dental bridge is a prosthesis used to replace missing teeth by attaching artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth. A fixed porcelain bridge is achieved by permanently cementing crowns onto the teeth adjacent to a missing space, while filling the space with a false porcelain tooth, all as one solid unit. There are also other types of dental bridges such as removable that attach to the teeth with metal or plastic clasps. The type of bridge will depend on your case and requirements which our dentists are happy to discuss with you
Dental implants can be an ideal solution to replacing damaged or missing teeth. They are made up of three components—A titanium screw, abutment, and restoration(Crown) —that mimic the function of natural teeth. These fixed tooth replacements restore your health, aesthetics, and function. The implant is secured into your jawbone and functions similar to a natural tooth root. Dental implants are one of the most versatile tooth replacements available, able to replace any number of missing teeth.
Root canals are an option to salvage a tooth rather than extracting. When decay or damage is in close proximity to the nerve, the nerve may eventually die. Once the nerve tissue inside a tooth dies, bacteria thrive and may cause and infection or abscess. Rather than removing the tooth, your dentist may be able to save the tooth. Root canals consist of cleaning out and disinfecting the dead nerve tissue inside the tooth and sealing it up with a medicated material to prevent further infection. Once the nerve canal system is sterilized and sealed, the tooth is closed and often covered with a crown to restore the tooth.
Bleaching • Teeth Whitening
Tooth discoloration can develop as a result of the aging process, along with smoking or drinking certain beverages such as coffee, soda, and red wine. We offer both in-office and take-home whitening options to make your smile more vibrant. You can achieve results several shades brighter with one office visit or similar results with continued use of the take-home treatment, or combine both for fast results and home maintenance.
A dental veneer is a porcelain shell that dental professionals can customize to enhance the size, shape and shade of a tooth. If you have chipped, discolored, misaligned, spacing, or crooked teeth and want to change them, then porcelain veneers may be the solution you are looking for. Veneers are a less invasive option to enhance your smile and improve aesthetics without preparing as much tooth structure as a full coverage crown.
Gingival (Gum) Recontouring
Many people with “gummy” smiles do not know that there are treatments available to cosmetically enhance the look of your smile. Gingival (gum) contouring is the process of recontouring the gingiva or soft tissue only. Crown lengthening refers to recontouring of both gum and supporting bone. In these types of cases, removing excess gum or bone tissue can greatly enhance the appearance of your smile and reduce unwanted "gummy" smiles.
Dentures • Partial Dentures
Dentures and partial dentures are oral prostheses that are used to replace missing teeth. Dentures can replace a full arch of missing teeth (Complete Denture), or indivitual areas of missing teeth (Partial Denture). These prosthetics can be fabricated of lifelike acrylic, metal frameworks, or flexible resin materials that can appear very natural. There are a variety of denture options ranging from immediate (temporary) dentures and partials, conventional dentures, and implant supported dentures and partials.
Extractions are not usually our first option, but sometimes removing a tooth may be necessary. Severe decay, bone loss, or cracked roots may determine the inability to restore or save a tooth. In these cases, the last resort may be to remove the tooth as to prevent further damage or eliminate infections that could lead to very painful toothaches. Dental infections are very closely associated with many major systemic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and may even be life-threatening. Our dentists take pride in making sure you are comfortably numb for a calm extraction experience if needed.
I am thrilled to share the excitement of my results after seeing Dr. Hancock! I did a trendy form of braces and everything turned out really well but my two small teeth next to my larger ones were stubborn. They wouldn't align perfectly and to be honest they were just so tiny I did not think it would have made their appearance any better. I went in for a consultation and we discussed bonding or veneers for those 2 teeth. We decided bonding was the best for me. The day of finally came and Dr. Hancock moved carefully and swiftly (he also filled a cavity). We discussed the look of the teeth throughout to make sure I had the results I wanted. I couldn't be happier! I mean you can see for yourself what just fixing two teeth can do to a smile! - Lauren M.
