Mercury Free White Fillings
Older silver (amalgam) fillings can easily be replaced by tooth colored, composite (white) fillings in one visit. The new composite fillings contain no mercury, are long lasting, and are much more esthetic. This patient was very happy with the beautiful appearance of her new fillings.
Sometimes, accidents happen. Teeth can be damaged from injuries from car accidents, bike accidents, and sports injuries. The same techniques that are used to fix teeth damaged by dental decay can be used to repair teeth damaged by accidental injury.
Sometimes, we have to do more extensive work to reach a beautiful result. Using several porcelain crowns and periodontal treatments, we were able to create a new smile the patient can be proud of.
Dental Implants are an exciting advance for anyone who has lost a tooth. A dental implant is a permanent replacement for the root of a tooth onto which a restoration can be fabricated. No other teeth are prepared and no crowns are needed on adjacent teeth. Single, multiple, or all teeth can be replaced with dental implants. For this patient, we were able to permanently replace a back tooth easily with a dental implant and restore her ability to chew steak!
