Have you ever found yourself thinking, “I don’t like the look of my teeth” or “I don’t have the smile I want”? Most of us have. Our teeth can become discolored, chipped, cracked or even rotten through the rigors of normal daily use. Undoubtedly you have been told that you should brush and floss daily, as well as visit your dentist at least every six months – but what is your option if, like most people, you haven’t taken the best care of your teeth or if you can’t even remember the last time you visited a dentist?
Well, it’s never too late to start. With the help of your restorative dentist, your smile can become picture perfect! These professionals give your smile a beautiful look and strong, comfortable functionality, even if you never had either in the first place. In some cases, it could even take as little as a single appointment!
A common solution to fixing a patient’s tooth is placing a restoration, such as a crown or bridge. BruxZir® Solid Zirconia is a highly esthetic, strong material that can be used to create crowns and bridges. It is the most prescribed brand of full-contour zirconia, and has a proven record of success in patients around the world.
Bite splints are removable protective devices for the mouth that cover the teeth and gums to reduce injury or damage. Bite splints are often used as a treatment for patients with Bruxism. These appliances prevent further damage by separating the patient’s teeth with a comfortable layer of acrylic, which keeps the opposing teeth from grinding or crashing together.
“We strive to drive down restorative costs and expand patient access to affordable dentistry.”
