Porcelain Veneers

 

Can you imagine having beautiful, straight teeth without wearing braces? Porcelain veneers are a dramatic breakthrough in cosmetic dentistry. In the hands of a skilled cosmetic dentist, like the ones you will find at DentalWorks, veneers can transform worn, misshapen, broken and discolored teeth into the most naturally beautiful smiles possible. Veneers are a conservative dentistry approach that can make dramatic changes in your smile. Often, porcelain veneers provide a completely improved and dazzling smile in just a few appointments.

 

Tooth Whitening

 

You can have the confidence that comes from a bright, white smile. If you are happy with the alignment and spacing of your teeth, a tooth whitening procedure may be all that separates you from a dazzling smile. Tooth whitening is safe, effective and long-lasting. There are two main whitening methods-both of which provide excellent results: a custom home-whitening kit or an in-the-office procedure.

At-Home
Patients rave about our in-home tooth-whitening program. Imagine removing surface stains and having the white smile you had when you were a teenager. DentalWorks offers a take-home whitening program to help patients uncover a clean, renewed smile!

 

Porcelain Bridges

 

When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth not only cause you to chew differently, but also, may cause mouth pain. As your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by your doctor, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth or to crowns on either side of the missing tooth. They are semi-permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist, and are a long-term restorative solution to your damaged smile.

 

Porcelain Crowns

You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Sometimes called “caps,” porcelain crowns are customized for you, covering broken, cracked, or discolored teeth. Crowns are a durable, strong, and long-lasting method of enhancing both the look and functionality of your smile. After some preparation of the tooth or teeth that will receive the crown(s), your dentist will position a custom milled, natural-looking porcelain crown over your damaged tooth, restoring and rejuvenating your oral health. 

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured, or discolored teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for composite resins. Composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings, offer a non-invasive way to improve your smile. A composite resin is a mixture of microscopic ceramic and glass particles dispersed in a plastic resin that can be bonded to teeth. The material comes in a wide range of shades and can be molded and sculpted to create almost any shape or contour. The fact that the resin is bonded means a seal is formed to reduce the chance of leakage, which is common with silver fillings. For years, silver/mercury was the primary material used by dentist for filling cavities. Today, tooth-colored restorations are superior, both in appearance and in durability. You deserve only the best, which is why your doctors at Dental Works offer tooth-colored restorations. If you have any concerns about the appearance of your teeth, give us a call for an evaluation to see if bonding with composite resin will give you the smile you’ve always wanted as well as the enhanced self-confidence that goes along with it. 

Bonding

Bonding refers to the placement of tooth-colored resin to correct chipped and broken teeth, discolored teeth, and in some cases, spaces between teeth. Bonding is generally considered more conservative than veneers or other cosmetic dentistry. The benefits of bonding include the ability to maintain the natural structure of the tooth and the ability to color and sculpt the resin to create natural looking teeth. Like a natural tooth, the resin may stain with the use of coffee or other staining foods.
