Smile and the Whole World Smiles With You
What's in a smile that makes this saying true?
It's easy to take a smile for granted, unless you're self-conscious about yours. In that case, you may spend more time and thought on hiding your smile than enjoying the moment. Natural imperfections, accidental damage, or food stains have always caused embarrassment and social anxiety. Don't dim your smile because of stained, chipped, or crooked teeth. With modern cosmetic dentistry, you can put those days behind you.
Our Cosmetic Dentistry Services:
Teeth whitening is one of the top cosmetic procedures that people want all over the country. People understandably want a bright, white, confident smile. When you come in and see us at The Elmwood Dental Group LLC, we will evaluate your teeth and determine the best way to remove your surface stains, giving you the whiter smile you are looking for.
A crown is a “cap” or covering that wraps and protects the entire visible surface of your damaged tooth. A crown works to strengthen the tooth while protecting the existing structure, extending the life of the tooth longer than it would be with a filling or another restoration. A dental crown is custom created based on molds of your mouth so that it will fit your tooth and bite pattern, which allows you to keep your natural tooth intact.
A bridge is non-removable, so it will become a permanent part of your smile. There are many different types of bridges, and we can help you choose the option that fits your custom dental needs.
Dental Implant Rehabilitation
In decades past, most dentists and society have assumed that people have three sets of teeth in their lifetime: their primary teeth, their permanent teeth and then their dentures. Dentures are an uncomfortable, though for many, an inevitable step. There are a variety of options for replacing a missing tooth or teeth such as implants, bridges, and dentures. This is where we come in, offering you the benefits of each option and helping you to pick the best one for your independent case.
When the condition of the teeth has deteriorated so far that they can no longer be repaired, removal is the only option. Dentures are a "replacement" option for missing teeth. There are two variations of dentures: partial dentures and full dentures. The difference between the two lies in how many natural teeth remain.
Bonding is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin (plastic) to repair a chipped, decayed, fractured, discolored tooth or as a cosmetic alternative to amalgam fillings. Bonding is a cosmetic procedure where the dentist applies a tooth-colored composite material to a tooth, shapes it, allows it to harden and polishes it. It can also be used in certain situations where a tooth has been damaged. These repairs generally can be resolved through this relatively conservative means.
