This branch of dentistry corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. It implies the placement of metal or ceramic brackets on the teeth then placing the adequate wire. This system requires vigilant brushing and flossing and certain foods may need to be avoided in order to protect the brackets and to prevent decay. Some cases can be done by a general dentist while others may be referred to an orthodontist.
Porcelain Veneers, Crowns,Bridges and Implants
If your teeth are chipped, stained, or unevenly spaced, you may want to consider porcelain veneers. Veneers consist of a thin layer of porcelain bonded to the front part of the tooth to improve its appearance. For cosmetic reasons, veneers have become increasingly popular. Crowns are made to protect a tooth with a root canal or a large restoration. Bridges are used to replace a single or small number of missing teeth in the same area when healthy teeth are available on both ends of the space. Dental implants are small, titanium, screw-shaped threaded cylinders that are placed into the alveolar bone. They are used to replace one or many missing teeth, or to stabilize dentures. The surgical phase is done at a specialist’s office. The prosthetic phase will be carried out in our office. If you have any questions, feel free to book a consultation at our office.
