What is a dental crown?
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth to cover the tooth, to restore its shape and size, strength, and to improve its appearance. The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.
Whether you are missing one tooth, several teeth, or all of your teeth, Dental implants restore the confidence and beautiful smile you once had!
When you have lost teeth eventually the bone shrinks under the dentures or partial dentures. Bone needs tooth roots to stimulate it or it will erode away.
Because dentures and partial dentures are not anchored by teeth and because they "float" on top of the bone and gums, they can be a constant source of sores and pain for many patients.
We can replace lost teeth with mini implants or with single implants and give you back your beautiful smile! A dental implant is a small titanium rod that looks like a screw. The screw replaces the tooth root and the dental crown replaces the visible portion of the tooth. Placing dental implants and this experience will give you back your confidence to show off you beautiful smile!
We can "anchor" your teeth with "All-on-4" Implant Systems or use "Teeth in a Day" Implant Systems and you will go home the same day with fixed teeth! The "All-on-4" Implant System uses just four implants to support a full set of dentures or replacement teeth. Our office is unique in that we can offer teeth replacement from the simplest "All-of-4" technique to the most complex cases when we need to add or reshape bone.
Rather than the expensive process of being hospitalized and grafting a patient's bone from the hip, we can "shape" the patient's existing bone around the implant. Experience is important in choosing an implant Dentist so that you can once again enjoy the healthy foods you love!

Once the inner pulp layer of a tooth has become infected, your choices are limited. You could choose to extract the tooth, delay treatment, or save the tooth with root canal therapy. Severe toothache is a common sign of dental pulp infection. The dental pulp is a small bundle of tissue in the center of each tooth. When bacteria infect the pulp of trauma fractures the tooth, swelling may put pressure on the nerve and cause severe pain. Millions of root canals are performed in dental clinics every year and has become one of the most routine procedures in dentistry. Contrary to popular belief, a root canal is about as uncomfortable as getting a filling.
Smiling and laughing with our family and friends not only helps you feel and look great but shows others that you love and care for them! A smile makeover can restore all of the teeth within the smile line optimal results with no discrepancies in shape, style or color of the teeth. In some cases, a smile makeover has reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lip area and smile, creating a more youthful look. If you are embarrassed to smile we can restore your confidence and give you back your beautiful smile.
In periodontitis, the gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces (called ''pockets'') that become infected. The body's immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Bacterial toxins and the body's natural response to infection start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. If not treated, the bones, gums and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed. The teeth may eventually become loos and have to be removed. Our dental hygienist will remove the hardened calculus, may administer an antibacterial, and then put you on a maintenance program to ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy for a lifetime!
