Natural-looking, comfortable dental bridges
Dental bridges are often a good solution for the replacement of one or more missing teeth. Award-winning Cosmetic Dentists of our clinic specializes in Smile Transformation, and use many dental techniques, including bridges, to help people get the smiles that they want, hand in hand with improved functionality.
If you need or are considering a dental bridge, Our dentist can help you. From careful and thorough diagnosis through expert design, crafting and placement, at our Qualident lab, you will get the bridge that is exactly right for you.
Is a Bridge the right solution?
A bridge can be used to fill in a gap in your gumline left by a tooth that is missing. Using the adjoining teeth as support, a properly-made bridge will match your remaining natural teeth and enable you to eat, smile and speak comfortably. A bridge can usually be completed rapidly.
When you come in for a dental restoration consultation, the Dentist will fully examine your teeth, jaw and bone structure. He’ll ask you exact questions to find out what you need and expect from your new teeth, and he will work with you to find the solution that will work for you.
In the case of missing teeth, sometimes a dental implant is the solution that patients prefer, because the implant protects your underlying bone from resorption, and doesn’t require any alteration or cutting of your remaining teeth. However, not everyone is a candidate for dental implant surgery. The Dentist can tell you if you are a good candidate for dental implants, and can fully explain your options.
If you and dentist decide that a bridge is right for you, he can use a bridge to complete your Smile Transformation.
INLAYS & ONLAYS
Inlays and onlays can be thought of as the solution to tooth decay that sits right in between a filling and a crown. Fillings are used when a small cavity is found in a tooth that can be remedied by filling the damaged area with a hard, tooth-colored plastic. This plastic does wear down over time, however, and if the cavity is too large, a filling may not be a good enough solution. When this is the case, an inlay may be the right approach.Inlays
Much like a veneer or crown, an inlay first requires a digital scan of the affected tooth to be taken. This scan is then sent to a lab so the inlay will fit perfectly where the newly removed cavity was. This inlay is then affixed to the area and cemented in place.Onlays
If the decay is not contained solely to the middle of the tooth, but comes up on the cusps of the tooth, then an onlay may be considered. An onlay is much the same concept as an inlay, only slightly larger, and may cover the top of the tooth, but not the entirety of it like a crown would.Confident clinic uses all porcelain inlays and onlays, because porcelain does not wear down over time, has no negative side affects like metals do, and has the extra benefit of being aesthetically pleasing. Porcelain inlays and onlays are also much stronger than tooth colored fillings, and can withstand much more pressure.For inlays and onlays, we also use the CEREC scanner, which allows us to create porcelain inlays and onlays on the same day as a patient’s first visit right in our clinic. This technology makes it possible to provide patients with long-term solutions to larger cavities that are both painless and beautiful in just hours.

Porcelain Crowns – Cosmetic Dentistry Specialists Confident clinic
If you’re self-conscious about cracked, broken, decayed, or worn teeth, take heart. We can bring back your healthy, natural looking smile with dental crowns, also called caps. A crown can return structural strength, and functionality to a tooth that has extensive decay or damage. Designed to fit snugly and function just like a healthy tooth, a crown will protect your tooth from further damage and preserve the jaw’s correct natural alignment.
Although We use precious metal, porcelain pressed (or fused) to metal, to maintain a fully-white smile, we can recommend all-ceramic crowns. Our precise color-matching system allows us to find the right shade of porcelain to blend with your natural tooth color. Porcelain crowns are also extremely durable and long lasting, and these benefits make them a popular solution with dentists as well as patients.
Our state of the art dental technology allows us to custom design and create everything in house, which means we can usually design, fit, and place your crowns in a single appointment. Once a crown is placed, you can ensure continuing oral care just like you do your other natural teeth. Conscientious brushing twice a day and daily flossing will protect the base of your crown from bacterial growth. Be sure to also see us at least two times each year for professional cleanings and a preventive oral exam.

As Cosmetic dentists, we understand that you want your smile to look as healthy as it feels. That’s one reason that when we repair your cavities, we use only tooth-colored, durable materials to fill your teeth.
Using only beautiful materials that are compatible with your body
Current technology has provided dentists with many choices that can be perfectly color-matched to your own teeth. Our tooth-colored fillings are beautiful, durable, and safe.
Tooth-colored fillings don’t just look better. They are also better and healthier for you.
With so many other, better and safer choices available, Our Dentists choose not to offer amalgam, mercury-containing fillings to his patients.
A root canal treatment, which is also referred to as an endodontic treatment, is a common dental procedure that is used by dentists to remove diseased or dead nerve tissue from inside a tooth.
The dentist will make access into the tooth, and then remove the pulp/nerve. The root canal is then thoroughly cleansed and re-shaped. Once the cleaning is completed, the dentist will use an antiseptic to kill any remaining germs. If the infection has spread too far to be removed by this point, the dentist may administer medicine to handle the infection and/or leave the tooth open for a few days so it has a chance to drain. Following this, the root canal and pulp cavity will be filled and sealed. The last step is the placement of a crown over the tooth to give it extra strength and to match the rest of the teeth. This whole procedure involves little to no pain, and it takes anywhere from one to multiple visits depending on how severe the infection is.
Our dentists offer stress-free dentistry, utilizing high-tech tools and procedures to avoid pain and create a comfortable situation for our patients.
Gum disease is a highly prevalent dental problem today. Gum disease can occur in two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis.
Gingivitis is a milder, more easily handled disease, and it only affects the gums. Periodontitis is more severe, and can lead to major complications in the mouth. Both of these diseases occur below the gum line in a shallow, v-shaped crevice called the sulcus. As the sulcus becomes more affected, the crevice grows, and the gums and bone recede from the tooth and eventually it becomes loose.
Certain things a patient can do to prevent – or at lease decrease the likelihood of – gum disease. Patients should be in the habit of brushing well two to three times daily and flossing once per day. Using a soft bristled toothbrush will also help. Having a healthy diet also aids in the health of one’s gums: whole grains, vegetables, meats and dairy products are all beneficial. Snacks eaten between meals can increase the likelihood of gum disease and cavities. Also, regularly visiting your dentist and getting a full checkup and professional cleaning will help the teeth and gums to stay healthier.
Gum pocket charting is a way that dentists keep track of the health of gums and determine whether or not the patient is suffering from gum disease. Dentists can use advanced computerized technologies to measure the height of your gums, and then chart them on a graph. Using the results, a dentist will be able to determine how healthy the patient’s gums are and recommend how to handle any problems.
