Dental Bridge in Trenton, MI

A dental bridge is a false tooth, also known as a pontic. If you have a space from a missing tooth, a bridge will be custom made to fill the space with a false tooth. In a fixed bridge, the false tooth is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place are attached to the teeth on each side of the false tooth. This procedure is used to replace one or more missing teeth.

Dental Crowns in Trenton, MI

Grinding your teeth, an improper bite, age, fillings and tooth decay can all be contributing factors in the wearing down, cracking or breakage of your teeth. Dental crowns cover the entire visible surface of your affected tooth and add strength, durability and tooth stability. Your dentist will usually be able to spot problem areas in your mouth that might lead to tooth damage and a need for crowns. By selectively grinding the tips of your middle and back teeth (called cusps), your bite can be altered to reduce the stress on at-risk teeth.

Dental Implants in Trenton, MI

The implant procedure is the same whether one or all teeth are missing. To prepare the implant site, the gum tissue is opened to expose the bone area where the implant will be placed. In situations where there is insufficient bone structure, bone grafting may be a recommended procedure. Once healthy bone has been established, a special drill is used to prepare the bone to receive the implant.

Dental Veneers in Trenton, MI

Dental veneers (sometimes called porcelain veneers or dental porcelain laminates) are wafer-thin, custom-made shells designed to cover the front surfaces of teeth and improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth and can change the color, shape, size or length of the teeth. Dental veneers can be made from porcelain or from resin composite materials. Porcelain veneers resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light-reflecting properties of natural teeth. Resin veneers are thinner and require removal of less of the tooth surface before placement. You and your dentist will need to discuss the best choice of veneer material for you.

Treating Gum Diseases in Trenton, MI

Gingivitis and Periodontitis are considered to be a single disease complex often called gum disease. Gingivitis sometimes goes unnoticed in the early stages and may cause no symptoms until it is fairly advanced. It may then spread to the bony tissues, which lie under the gums and support the teeth. This is called Periodontitis, which is a much more serious condition than Gingivitis.

Root Canals in Trenton, MI

There are tiny canals within your tooth that may become infected. This leads to the pulp inside your tooth also becoming infected as well. Either your dentist or an endodontist can remove any infection by performing a root canal procedure. After the canals are cleaned and filled, the tooth then receives either a filling or crown.

Teeth Whitening in Trenton, MI

Bonding is a white composite resin filling that can be placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. Composites are the solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or reshaping teeth. Bonding will lighten any stains you may have, close minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Bonding will basically cover any natural flaws through an initial application of a thin coating of plastic material on the front surface of your teeth. The hardening material is sculpted and shaped and hardened with a high intensity light. The final bonding is polished for a final touch.
