Many people all over the world have had silver fillings placed into their teeth because they had “cavities”. These silver fillings are called amalgams.  Amalgam fills the space where the decay in the tooth has been removed.

However, over time, the amalgam corrodes and leaks which blackens the silver, and many times the tooth. This is easily seen as soon as a patient opens his or her mouth and is usually a source of embarrassment for the patient.

We can provide you with composite fillings that are made of a porcelain-like material that actually bonds to the tooth for a tight seal. They are strong and stain-resistant, and they are color-matched to the natural tooth, making them “invisible”.

Composite fillings also lack the sensitivity that is often associated with silver amalgam fillings. They are especially suited for smaller cavities and for patients who may be allergic to metal fillings.

Please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions you may have about the benefits of replacing silver amalgam fillings with invisible composite fillings.

For over 100 years, dentists have been using silver-mercury amalgam fillings to restore decayed or broken teeth.  The only other alternative was gold and that was too expensive for most folks.

Now there is a new and economical way to restore teeth using tooth-colored resin fillings.  The resin is made up of glass particles in a plastic matrix.  We bond the putty-like material to the tooth with a high-intensity light.  This hardens the material and allows it to be shaped and polished for immediate use.

Once completed, the tooth has a natural appearance and is actually stronger than before due to the strength of the adhesive agent used to bond the resin to the tooth.  Resin restorations not only look better, but they are stronger and last longer than the old silver-amalgam fillings.  Resin restorations are an inexpensive alternative to an unsightly problem.

Please call our office with any questions you may have about the benefits of resin restorations.

Tooth bleaching involves the placement of a bleaching solution on the teeth to eliminate stains and discoloration. The solution is held in place by a custom-made, see-through tray that fits over the teeth – much like a mouthpiece worn by a professional boxer.

Bleaching is a safe, effective and relatively easy means of producing a whiter smile.

Statistically the At-Home-Bleaching, which provides for home use (not to be confused with over-the-counter bleaching products available at area drug stores) is a safe and much more efficient way of bleaching, than any other method.

Sensitive teeth, or those that are chipped, eroded or weakened by cavities, should be repaired or protected before they are bleached.

Please don’t hesitate to call with any questions you may have about the benefits of tooth whitening or tooth bleaching for a whiter smile.

For over 100 years, dentistry has restored teeth primarily with a material made of mercury and silver.  It has done its job well, although we have had to live with its weaknesses. Those weaknesses consist of cracking teeth due to expansion of the material, and restorations turning black as the silver in the material corrodes.

Now we have many ways to provide tooth-colored restorations. We can use adhesives to bond tooth parts that look and act like teeth. We can provide a bright, healthy and strong smile with these exciting new techniques in adhesion dentistry.

Please don’t hesitate to call us if you believe you would benefit from these advancements.  Together we can help bring a smile back to your face.

 

The appearance of the teeth has a dramatic effect on both the person’s attractiveness to others and on their own self-image and self-esteem.  Studies have shown that a person’s appearance will have a strong effect on their social and career success, by influencing how others perceive them.

While the appearance of the teeth is one of the most important contributors to facial beauty, it is also probably the most often neglected when improvements to appearance are sought. A person with low self-esteem connected to their facial appearance, can often be greatly helped by cosmetic dental procedures.

Dental makeovers in our office have become more common, less invasive, and more effective in correcting deformities and cosmetic dental problems. The effect of these procedures can be nothing short of dramatic both in terms of appearance and also in terms of correcting, at least partially, personality deficiencies caused by poor self-image.  Ugly teeth are no longer a matter of fate; they are now becoming a matter of choice.

Please call our office with any questions you may have about the benefits of a dental make-over.

When teeth require significant changes in their shape or contour, veneers may be the answer.  By placing veneers, small or misshapen teeth can be built up to regain a more natural appearance, spaces between teeth can be closed by making the teeth wider and teeth that are too short can be lengthened.

The veneer is actually a thin piece of porcelain similar in size to a fingernail.  Once it is “bonded” onto the tooth it becomes extremely strong.  We also blend the veneer in with the remaining tooth structure so that it is unnoticeable to the naked-eye.  Once in place, it looks, feels, and functions just like a regular tooth.

At our office we can use porcelain veneers to change the shape and color of a single tooth or, if necessary, revamp an entire smile.  Porcelain veneers can also be used to correct teeth that have been worn from clenching and grinding.

Please call us for consultation.  You may ask any of our professional team questions you have about the benefits of porcelain veneers.

 

Essentially, bonding hides any natural flaws through the placement of a thin plastic coating on the front surface of the teeth.

After treating the tooth surface, we apply a putty-like bonding material that is then sculpted, shaped and colored to suit your needs. A high-intensity light causes the plastic to harden after which the new surface is smoothed and polished.

Bonding can lighten stains, close gaps and even alter crooked or malformed teeth. At our office we can even utilize it to change the shape or color of a single tooth or if necessary to remake your entire smile.

A Crown for a Tooth

Teeth are often restored with fillings of silver or composite plastics. These materials can often accomplish the aim of replacing the part of the tooth that has been lost in a strong and good-looking manner.

However, there comes a point where the damage to the tooth has removed too much structure to hold a filling. The restoration must be done by a technique that will attach to the remaining tooth, stand up under heavier use and meet more elaborate cosmetic requirements.

The crown is the dental restoration that can strengthen and restore the entire top of a tooth. The crown can also be part of the attachment of a fixed bridge for the replacement of teeth. The tooth is strengthened because it is covered from the outside with a casting of metal or ceramic that will wrap up and splint the tooth.

The chewing of the tooth can be improved because it can be reshaped to match more efficiently with the opposing teeth. A crown can improve cosmetics by the use of modern ceramic processes that produce translucency and color that is more natural than has ever been possible.

 

Tooth-colored “resin” fillings

For over 100 years, dentists have been using silver-mercury amalgam fillings to restore decayed or broken teeth. The only other alternative was gold and that was too expensive for most folks.

Now, there is a new and economical way to restore teeth using tooth-colored resin fillings. The resin is made up of glass particles in a plastic matrix. We bond the putty-like material to the tooth with a high-intensity light. This hardens the material and allows it to be shaped and polished for immediate use.

Once completed, your tooth has a natural appearance and is actually stronger than before due to the strength of the adhesive agent used to bond the resin to the tooth. Resin restorations not only look better, but they are stronger and last longer than the old silver-amalgam fillings. Resin restorations are an inexpensive solution.

The major advantage of the composite veneer is treatment time. If composite is used, the veneers can be done in one appointment. The dentist will actually make the veneer directly on the prepared tooth.

The veneer is then smoothed and polished to look like your natural teeth. Since it takes only one appointment, you can leave Platinum Dental with a brand new smile.

One of the disadvantages of composite veneers is that they are not as strong as the porcelain veneer and therefore are more prone to fracture. However, if a fracture does occur, they can be easily repaired because the same material that was used initially to make the veneer can be added in the same manner to fix it.

Another disadvantage is that the color, although stable, is not as stable as the same porcelain veneer restoration. This means that over time the veneers may get darker or turn yellow. Eventually this change in color can warrant the replacement of the veneers.

 

A porcelain veneer requires a longer treatment time. At the first appointment, your teeth are prepared and an impression is made of them. Temporary veneers are made out of plastic and placed on your teeth. They are used to protect your teeth while the real porcelain veneer is being fabricated. You can also use them to evaluate the look and feel of your teeth so that any changes you desire can be incorporated into your real veneers.

At the second appointment, we remove the temporary veneers and bonds the porcelain veneer to your teeth. Once the dental veneers are cemented, color alteration is no longer possible. Dental cement is applied between the dental veneers and tooth.

Although they are thin, a porcelain veneer is much stronger than the composite veneer, so the risk of fracture as compared with composite veneers is much less. However, if a fracture does occur, repairing it is more difficult and may result in the veneer having to be remade.

Once teeth have been veneered, they will require periodic treatment and regular visits to Platinum Dental. The result is a beautiful and long lasting smile you will love.

There are many situations that arise that lend themselves to treatment with veneers.

One indication is for restoring teeth with discoloration that have been unaffected by the more conventional tooth whitening approaches, such as bleaching. Some examples of this are teeth that have severe tetracycline (an antibiotic) staining or discoloration from a previous injury to the tooth. Veneers are considerably more durable and stain-resistant than bonding.
