Replace Missing Teeth
- Crowns: tooth colored and shaped with porcelain. Crowns are placed on teeth that are too weak to hold a filling (restoration). Crowns are usually colored and shaped to match your natural dentition.
- Bridges: multiple crowns that span the space where one or more teeth are missing
(Crowns and Bridges are permanent and are made of natural-looking tooth colored porcelain)
- Dentures: can replace your missing teeth and improve your quality of life. Eating and speaking will be easier with the dentures. We will help you restore comfort and proper function so that you can maintain a happy social calendar. Dentures also support the cheeks and lips so that the face muscles do not sag and make you look older. Hence, dentures can enhance your appearance.
- Removable Partial Dentures are oral prosthesis that is fabricated to show beautiful teeth where teeth were previously missing. Today we can provide Removable Partial Dentures without the metal clasp (Valplast ®). This is a patented partial denture material with tissue shaded clasp to disguise the retentive arm that helps to hold the Removal Partial Dentures in place.
- Removable Full Dentures are made of the latest technology to give your teeth a natural appearance. The teeth size and shape will be closely evaluated (tapered teeth for the feminine smile and tall rhomboid teeth for the masculine smile).
- Implants: the latest technology to replace missing teeth. A biocompatible metal post placed in the edentoulers to act as an anchor to hold the porcelain crown.
Gingiva and Periodontia is the proper name for gums. Periodontal services are performed to maintain healthy gingiva (gums).
Healthy Gingiva is very important. Tooth loss can occur due to unhealthy gums or periodontal disease. Research suggests that there may be a link between periodontal diseases and other diseases such as diabetes, heart diseases, pneumonia and increased risk for problems related to pregnancy.
Children Dentistry (Pediatric Dentistry): We welcome the entire family to Gentle Dental. A child’s first dental visit should take place no later than one year of age, so that the child may become familiar with the dentist and office staff.
Sealants: We strongly recommend sealants once the first set of permanent molars are evident. A sealant is protective coating that goes on top of the biting surface of the adult molars to prohibit cavities during the preteen and teen years.
Tooth Colored Filling (composite): Composites are placed where silver (amalgam) fillings were used done years ago. Today we have strong reliable tooth colored fillings.
