  • Dental Implants

The specialist is well-experienced in performing implant procedures. With the use of cutting-edge technology, missing teeth are replaced with dental implants that are stable and strong. The procedure involves the insertion of dental implants into the jawbone with a crown or bridge on top.

A complete examination is taken to assess if you’re a good candidate for implants. You need to have healthy gums and adequate bones to support the implant. Depending on your circumstance and the type of implant, the dentist sometimes recommends a bone graft before the procedure. This will be discussed during your consultation with the dentist where he will talk about the process, length of treatment, costs, and other details. Feel free to ask questions.

  • Restorative Treatments

Restorative Treatment focuses on the improvement of the function and appearance of your teeth. It restores damaged teeth using various options such as braces, teeth whitening, fillings, inlays, onlays, veneers, and crowns.

The specialist prevents and treats teeth irregularities using braces, retainers, and other orthodontic devices. Orthodontic devices straighten teeth and correct bite problems. In-office Whitening or Laser teeth whitening treatments removes discoloration and brightens your pearly whites, which is safe and effective because a trained dentist performs the treatment. Depending on the extent of damage, the dentist will recommend fillings, inlays, onlays, veneers, and crowns. Fillings including inlays and onlays are used to repair minor fractures. Veneers and crowns improve the appearance, shape, and size of your teeth.

The dentists perform a comprehensive examination before recommending the right treatment. Top quality materials are used in creating dental restorations. Crowns are made of porcelain fused to metal, full porcelain/full ceramic, and zirconia. For veneers, the materials are made of composite, porcelain, and zirconia. Discuss your goals and concerns to the dentist. A personalized treatment plan can be created to suit your needs.

In order to make the patients relaxed during the procedure, the dentists sometimes recommend sedation dentistry. This allows the dentists to carry out the procedure while the patients sit comfortably in the dentist chair. The clinic also provides a friendly and relaxing atmosphere to make patients at ease during treatment.
