Single Visit Porcelain Crowns [TOP]

Crowns are prosthetic teeth which completely encircle the original tooth or an implant and improve the strength and appearance of teeth. Partial crowns cover only a part of the tooth leaving more of the original tooth material intact. Porcelain crowns are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Porcelain crowns used to be a two visit process. The dentist would initially have to prep the teeth and then take impressions of them to build a model that would be sent out to a technician who would later create your permanent crowns or veneers. The patient would typically go home with temporary fittings that would later be removed once the technician had completed the fabrication of the permanent settings. The patient would then come back for a second visit to have the permanent crowns fixed in place.

Dr. DeCoite uses the CERAC System which allows him to perform this process, in most cases, in a single visit. The CERAC System is the cutting edge of modern dentistry. It utilizes CAD/CAM computer technology build a digital 3-D model of your teeth. This enables us to provide a permanent restoration conservatively, without excessive cutting of tooth structure. An all-ceramic fitting is then laser milled right here in the office to a precision fit. The finished restoration looks and feels like a natural tooth, bonding to the existing tooth structure and proving to be the most durable ceramic restoration available to date.

Implants [TOP]

A dental implant involves the permanent placement of a post into the jawbone to serve as an artificial root to anchor a crown. The crown is prepared to have the appearance and function of a natural tooth. Implants can also be used to secure full or partial dentures.

Porcelain Veneers [TOP]

Ever wondered why Hollywood celebrities have such amazing smiles? The answer is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are the next best thing to having been blessed naturally perfect teeth. The look and feel of porcelain crowns and veneers simply can’t be beat.

Veneers are thin tooth-colored shells that are custom crafted to cover the front of your natural teeth. Porcelain veneers cover stained, crooked or badly shaped teeth, and also correct any gaps in between your teeth. The result is a near perfect smile.

Invisible Fillings [TOP]

A dental filling restores appearance, function and integrity tooth from the effects of tooth decay. Damaged material is stripped away and replaced with a polymer which bonds with the natural tooth material. For larger fillings a custom ceramic inlay is sometimes prepared to be permanently affixed to the affected area. The color of the filling material can be blended so that it matches exactly with the surrounding tooth making it virtually invisible and restoring the appearance of the damaged tooth. Fillings are usually performed in a single office visit.

Root Canals [TOP]

A root canal (also known as endodontic therapy) is a procedure used to treat teeth which are cracked or severely damaged by infection or tooth decay causing the sensitive nerve tissue to become exposed. This condition can cause severe pain and often results in infection of the affected tooth. In a root canal the nerve tissue inside the tooth is cleaned away and the tooth is resealed with a crown or filling material. The patient is given an anesthetic to reduce discomfort during the procedure. The root canal procedure restores the appearance and function of the affected tooth.

Extractions [TOP]

A tooth may need to be removed for a number of reasons. Common reasons for extraction include severe tooth decay, extra teeth, gum disease, crowding, tooth impaction, fractures and other forms of physical damage. Wisdom teeth are routinely removed to prevent crowding which may potentially lead to damage and discomfort. The extraction of wisdom teeth often leads to a functionally improved bite and helps maintain a beautiful smile.

Teeth Whitening [TOP]

Tooth color is very important to the overall appearance of your smile. Over time teeth can become stained and yellow from coffee, tea, smoking and a number of other factors. Teeth whitening procedures are very effective at helping to restore that bright white look to your natural teeth. While there are many over the counter tooth whitening products available, many of which produce noticeable results, and in-office procedure can whiten your teeth as much as 3 to 4 shades whiter in about an hour and is an ideal solution for those with sensitive teeth.

TMJ Treatment [TOP]

TMJ symptoms include pain and discomfort, stiffness often accompanied by “pop” or “click” sound, headaches and neck aches and can be the result of a number of conditions. This is often caused or exacerbated by stress. Excessive teeth grinding at night, often associated with TMJ, can lead to severe damage if left untreated. A custom mouth guard worn at night can help prevent much of the harmful effects of TMJ.

Full and Partial Dentures [TOP]

Dentures are a removable prosthetic fitting that designed to replacing a missing tooth or teeth. A partial denture replaces one or more teeth. Teeth can be lost due to a number of reasons, including tooth decay, gum disease, and injury. A full denture replaces an entire arch, or both arches of teeth. Individuals can become edentulous (without teeth) for a variety of reasons including tooth decay, dental disease, malnutrition, and certain genetic defects.

Replacing missing teeth can be important for a variety of reasons. A complete smile is aesthetically pleasing to look at and can help in social and career situations, as well as help foster self-esteem. A full set of teeth enables proper chewing, making it easier to enjoy a healthy diet. Lastly, teeth (especially the anterior teeth) serve an important function in speaking and dentures can help improve word pronunciation.
