Dynamic Dental Wellness offers you a 100 percent metal-free alternative to implants made of titanium. Ceramic implants are healthy and aesthetically pleasing and give you a healthy smile – throughout your life.
Some people have always had problems with their teeth and have had to undergo many treatments. Some have amalgam fillings on almost half of their teeth. In recent years, the trend has moved away from amalgam fillings because many patients no longer wanted metal in their mouths. When a dental prosthesis becomes necessary, many patients believe that the only acceptable solution should be metal-free.
TOOTH COLORED BIO COMPATIBLE FILLINGS
With the advent of the newest technologies in dental science, today’s state-of-the-art restorative materials include ceramic and the latest composite materials.
These materials are not only strong and durable, but restore the look of natural teeth and are very aesthetically pleasing.
COSMETIC VENEERS AND CROWNS
Gaps, chips, stains, or misshapen teeth can now be treated with wonderful results and very conservatively using porcelain veneers. Veneers are natural in appearance and are a perfect alternative for patients wanting to make minor adjustments to the look and feel of their smile.
Veneers are thin, custom-made shells made from tooth-colored materials (such as porcelain) designed to cover the front side of your teeth. For dental veeners schedule a veneer consultation with Dr. Sheri.
The terms dental crowns and caps are synonymous. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal.
When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth. Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, or to prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse.
Crowns also serve an aesthetic use, and are applied when a discolored or stained tooth needs to be restored to its natural appearance. Crowns are fabricated in a laboratory and are made either of porcelain baked onto a metal substrate, all-porcelain, or many of the new ceramic materials that have been developed.
Our office offers all areas of Cosmetic Dentistry to provide you will a complete smile makeover.
FULL MOUTH RECONSTRUCTION
For those who suffer from extensive oral complaints, full mouth reconstruction can be an excellent option for restoring oral health and appearance.
A neuromuscular full mouth reconstruction is when a series of restorative and neuromuscular dentistry procedures are performed to offer a patient with a fully functioning, exquisite and natural-looking smile.
Generally, a full mouth reconstruction is performed on people experiencing worn and damaged teeth, decayed, or missing, and/or misaligned teeth.
LASER BACTERIAL REDUCTION
Laser Bacterial Reduction is a revolutionary new technology that attacks gum disease at a microscopic level by using a soft tissue laser. The laser targets bacterial colonies that may be otherwise hard to reach through regular means. It promotes healing and the destruction of the bacteria that causes periodontal disease and inflammation. Inflammation of the gums is linked to life threatening diseases such as heart attack, stroke and Alzheimer’s, as the diseased gum tissue causes pockets that bacteria can enter and fester in. Laser Bacterial Reduction focuses and targets harmful bacteria by circling the teeth and gum pockets and reducing the billions of bacteria within the pocket to hundreds within a matter of seconds.
Perio Protect is a comprehensive approach to gum disease treatment. The approach combines dental cleanings with the comfortable Perio Tray® delivery of medication that patients use at home between office visits. The Perio Tray is similar to a mouth-guard, but it has a special sealing system to deliver medication below the gums. You put medication in the tray and wear it for a few minutes a day. The medication fights the infections. It’s that easy.
The Perio Protect treatment approach uniquely adds more effective home-care to a treatment plan. Bacteria that cause inflammation and disease are hidden deep below the gums and are extremely difficult to manage at home with toothbrushes, rinses and floss. The Perio Tray is able to reach deep into the pockets between the teeth and gums, applying medication to infected gum tissue that cannot be reached using toothbrushes, dental floss, or mouthwashes. In fact, the Perio Protect Tray was created to help patients fight periodontal diseases.
