Bringing You Efficient and Superior Dental Treatments
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry. This does not refer to a one-time visit to your dentist to get your teeth looking perfect. In most cases, this is just not possible. A cosmetic dentist is one who over time tries to make teeth look better through processes such as teeth cleaning, whitening, porcelain veneers, and treatments of that nature.
Cosmetic dentistry differs from regular dentistry in the sense that regular dentistry focuses on the health of your teeth, by doing treatments such as root canals, teeth cleanings, and cavities. Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the appearance and beauty of a person’s smile while at the same time making sure the teeth, gums, and bones, are healthy.
Good dental or oral care is important to maintaining healthy teeth, gums, and tongue. Oral problems include bad breath, dry mouth, canker or cold sores, TMD, tooth decay, or thrush are all treatable with proper diagnosis and care.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over the tooth. It is used to strengthen and protect your tooth structure. Most crowns are made of a hard white substance to help them look more natural.
A dental bridge covers or "bridges" the gap between missing teeth. After you lose a tooth, your dentist may suggest that you get a bridge. A bridge is useful in keeping your other teeth from moving out of place.
Dental implants are replacement tooth roots. Implants provide a strong foundation for fixed (permanent) or removable replacement teeth that are made to match your natural teeth.

Or also known as digital radiography imaging, is a format for producing x-rays in which film used to produce conventional x-ray images is replaced with more sensitive electronics. DXRs produce images with 1/2 of the radiation, and the images are easier to store, copy and send since they are in a digital format.
Teeth whitening is the process of using bleach or other materials to make teeth look whiter. The materials remove stains and other discoloration from the tooth surface. Teeth whitening would fall into our cosmetic dentistry category.
The denture development process takes a few weeks and several appointments. Once your dentist determines what type of appliance is best for you, the general steps are to:
Make a series of impressions of your jaw and take measurements of how your jaws relate to one another and how much space is between them.
Create models, wax forms, and/or plastic patterns in the exact shape and position of the denture to be made. You will "try in" this model several times and the denture will be assessed for color, shape, and fit before the final denture is cast.
Cast the final denture.
Adjustments will be made as necessary.
