If you want to alter the color, shape, size or length of your tooth or teeth, dental veneers can offer a great solution. Dental veneers are custom-made, micro-thin, tooth-colored porcelain shells that cover the front surface of the teeth. Once customized, the veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth, giving you a “star quality” smile.
If you have decayed, chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth, another option is dental bonding. Dental bonding is the use of colored, durable, putty-like resin applied to the tooth. It is then hardened with an ultraviolet or laser light, bonding the material to the tooth. Your teeth are then shaped and polished to give you a radiant smile.
A dental crown, offers a variety of benefits. It can keep a weak tooth from breaking. It can also hold a cracked tooth together, providing the crack has not affected the root. They are also used to cover discolored or misshapen teeth. There are different types of crowns materials including: metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, resin or ceramic.
Inlays / Onlays
Inlays and onlays offer an alternative to dental crowns. They can be made from gold, porcelain or composite materials for filling decayed or damaged teeth. An “inlay” is when the material is bonded within the center of a tooth. An “onlay” is when the filling includes one or more points of the tooth or covers the biting surface.
When you need to replace a one or more missing teeth, Dr. Rojas may recommend one or more dental implants. An implant is comprised of a titanium-made tooth root inserted into the bone socket of the missing tooth. It is then securely anchored in the jawline, followed by a topical, custom-made replacement tooth.
Bridges and Dentures
A bridge is made of dental crowns that fills in a gap of missing teeth and supports the jawline in that area. If your mouth has a significant number of missing teeth, you may choose the option of removable dentures.
