Care for Your Smile | Hi-Tech Dentistry | Smile Gallery
How many times have we heard “a face is worth a thousand words”? A beautiful smile exuberates happiness and self esteem. Let us discuss with you any concerns you may have about the appearance of your teeth. Are you unhappy with the color of your smile? Has the space between your two front teeth always kept you from really smiling? Let us discuss options to enhance and create a beautiful smile.
Porcelain Veneers – Porcelain veneers are very thin layers of custom sculpted porcelain that are bonded to the fronts of teeth. These thin layers of porcelain can be used to create a straight, beautiful, white smile. Porcelain veneers may be a treatment option for patients interested in permanently whitening teeth, straightening teeth, closing unsightly gaps in teeth, or lengthening teeth.
|• Whitening –Tooth Whitening or Dental Bleaching is an economical way to brighten your smile. Through time, the color of your teeth may darken due to chemicals in food, beverages or tobacco. Tooth whitening is a safe, effective way to regain a youthful smile. Our practice offers two types of bleaching, in-office (power bleaching) or take home bleaching. In office bleaching takes about an hour, but gives you instant results. Our practice currently offers “Opalescence Xtra Boost.” This whitening system is so advanced that it does not even require a light for activation. Take home bleach is done in the privacy of your own home. You simply wear a concentrated bleaching gel in a custom made tray for 30 minutes a day until you reach your desired color. After a thorough examination, Dr. Connor can recommend the best option for brightening your smile.
|| • Dental Implants – Missing teeth can destroy your quality of life by making you embarrassed of your smile or even making simple things like chewing food extremely difficult. Dental implants are a strong, beautiful alternative to crowns, bridges, partial dentures or complete dentures. We can restore a single missing tooth without damaging or “grinding down” adjacent teeth. Dental implants look natural and function just like teeth. Tired of that denture you’re wearing? Dental implants can be used to “anchor” or even replace a denture. After a thorough exam, Dr Connor will discuss whether you may be a candidate for implant dentistry.
Porcelain Crowns – All porcelain crowns are made from beautiful porcelain that completely covers your tooth. When a filling in a tooth is damaged or large decay is present often a porcelain crown is the best alternative to restore a tooth. Crowns help prevent tooth fracture and the loss of your tooth. All porcelain crowns look just like teeth. You may have seen crowns that look like crowns or “fake teeth” , but all porcelain crowns are beautifully natural looking. It takes two appointments to properly fit you with a porcelain crown. At the first visit, after you are comfortable, the tooth is carefully prepared for a crown and a model is made of the tooth. You leave our practice with a temporary crown. The model is used by the dental laboratory to carefully craft a custom, beautiful porcelain crown. In about two weeks, you return to see Dr Connor, and the crown is permanently cemented.
Fillings – Tooth Colored Fillings Many individuals still think of unsightly silver fillings when thinking of getting a filling. Today, however we offer natural looking tooth colored resin fillings. In past days, excess tooth would need to be cut away to place a silver colored filling. Today, only the dental decay needs to be removed, and a composite resin filling is bonded. Composite resin fillings are conservative, offer less post operative sensitivity than silver fillings, and look like natural teeth.
