Bonding

Bonding is a conservative method used to fix chipped, tarnished, or uneven teeth. During dental bonding, a white filling is put onto your tooth to enhance its appearance. The filling “bonds” with your teeth, and due to the fact that it can be found in a range of tooth-coloured shades, it closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth.

Tooth bonding can likewise be made use of for teeth fillings instead of amalgam fillings. Many patients prefer bonded fillings since the white colour is much less noticeable than the silver amalgam fillings. Bonding fillings can be used on front and back teeth depending upon the place and degree of tooth decay.

Bonding is less costly than other cosmetic treatments and generally can be finished in one visit to our dental practice. So you’re aware, bonding can stain and is much easier to break than other cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers. If this occurs, be sure to mention it to your dentist and we will repair any damage.

Bridges

A bridge might be utilized to replace missing teeth, aid in maintaining the shape of your face, and reduce tension on your bite.

A bridge replaces missing teeth with synthetic teeth, looks good, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a mix of these materials, and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.

The success of any bridge depends on its foundation—the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. It’s very crucial to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.

Crowns

Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to enhance a tooth or improve its shape. Crowns are most often utilized for teeth that are broken, worn down, or partly destroyed by tooth decay.

Crowns are “cemented” onto an existing tooth and completely cover the part of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface. At Brickyard Station Dental we offer crowns that can be made from porcelain, metal, or both. Porcelain crowns are usually liked because they simulate the clarity of natural teeth and are very strong. Crowns or on-lays (partial crowns) are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength to hold a filling. Unlike fillings, which apply the restorative material directly into your mouth, a crown is made outside of your mouth. Your crown is developed in a lab from   your special tooth impression, which permits a dental lab technician to analyze all aspects of your bite and jaw activities. Your crown is then shaped just for you so that your bite and jaw motions work normally once the crown is positioned.

Implants

While regular brushing, flossing, and dental technology are allowing many people to preserve their natural smiles for a lifetime, often our individual teeth just cannot keep up. If you’ve lost a tooth (or a couple of teeth) due to injury or disease, dental implants can invigorate both your smile and your dental health.

An implant is an artificial tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically put into the jawbone. They are very stable and feel like and mimic natural teeth. The ideal prospect for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including a sufficient amount of bone in the jaw, and healthy gums with no sign of gum issues or disease. If you are just missing one tooth, one implant plus one replacement tooth will certainly do the trick. However, if you are missing numerous teeth in a row, a couple of purposefully put implants can support a bridge. When getting dental implants consider your replacement teeth to be the same as natural teeth. They require the same daily brushing and flossing treatments, like your natural teeth, the better you take care of your replacements, the longer they will last.
