Permanent replacements for one or multiple missing teeth, dental implants replicate the appearance and performance of your natural teeth. The process begins with installing the implant followed by a healing period of three to six months. During this time, a temporary crown can be installed to help you maintain proper speech and chewing ability. After the healing is complete, your permanent abutment is placed on the implant and the procedure is complete.
Treatments that enhance the color and shape of your smile, but not necessarily the function, are considered cosmetic procedures. Some cosmetic dentistry services offered at our office include:
Lumineers - Thin porcelain bonded to your tooth to enhance color and shape
Veneers - Ceramic shell that covers tooth to remedy stains, cracked teeth, spaces and other issues
Teeth Whitening - Tray whitening system brightens teeth by 4-8 shades. Ask Dr. Clark about a custom take-home whitening tray.
Bonding - Tooth-colored composite applied to tooth to correct cracks, gaps and fill cavities.
Some oral ailments, such as cavities, may affect the nerve of the tooth. Such conditions may prompt the need for root canals or, in severe cases, an apicoectomy. Dr. Clark uses modern dental techniques and technologies to minimize discomfort during these procedures.
