We emphasize the aesthetic aspect in all of our work, because we know that when your smile looks great you feel it. We use a combination of preventive care, high quality materials, lifelike tooth colored shades, and advanced restorative techniques to give you the best possible results. There is no reason you can’t have the natural looking smile that you’ve always wanted. Ask us what veneers, crowns, bridges, bonding, and whitening can do for your smile!
If you suffer from misshaped teeth, unsightly gaps, or deep discoloration, our highly esthetic lithium disilicate veneers can help improve your smile. These veneers are three times stronger than standard porcelain ones. Getting veneers is quick and painless. It often corrects the appearance of crooked teeth without the need for braces. Our veneers are very thin, only half a millimeter, and are made from hard sheets of the most advanced dental ceramics available. They are bonded to natural teeth so they don’t come loose. Chipped, cracked or worn teeth also can greatly benefit from veneers. Patients often forget they ever had any of the aforementioned issues after veneers are bonded in place. They are so lifelike that it is possible to get a shade match that can be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Please call for a consultation to discuss if veneers are right for you.
Dental implants are the best way to replace lost teeth. Implants can replace any missing tooth. They look, feel, and function like strong natural teeth. Implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, dental implants are placed into the jaw bone underneath the gums. This has the added benefit of preventing future bone loss, just like natural teeth do. After a dental implant integrates with the jaw bone, a fixture called the abutment is attached to the implant and a lifelike crown is able to be cemented onto the abutment. The new crown feels very similar to how the missing tooth used to feel. It comes through the gums and can be flossed. Even people with no teeth can benefit from dental implants. They can replace their glued in dentures with ‘teeth’ that don’t move around when they talk and are not removable. At Highland Dental we handle the entire process from implant placement to crown cementation, so there is no need to be referred to multiple specialists and offices. Call today for a no-obligation consultation.
Are you wearing dentures that move around and require glue to hold them in place? We can design dentures which are anchored to your jaws via dental implants. This will allow you to eat food without worrying about your denture staying in place. It also instills confidence that the denture will not move when you are laughing, talking, or singing. If you are a denture wearer be sure to ask us about this option. It will make your life much less complicated.
For over one hundred years silver fillings have been used to fill cavities. While they are a reasonable restorative material, they have shortcomings. Metal does not bond well to teeth, so leakage and decay can often occur around the edges of these fillings. Additionally, this metal expands and contracts to a greater extent than your natural teeth which can lead to tooth fractures. Luckily the tooth colored resin filling is the modern solution to amalgam fillings. These restorations have a much closer expansion and contraction rate to that of your natural teeth. This means they pose less risk of fracturing your teeth. They are chemically bonded to your teeth to reduce leakage and decay around the edges. Best of all, white resin fillings are incredibly lifelike. They contain no metals and can actually strengthen your teeth.
