Crowns are used for restoration and aesthetics of the natural teeth. They can act as false teeth over dental implants, cover areas of staining and discoloration, or can provide strength and structure to teeth that have been damaged or undergone root canal therapy.
Replacing teeth can be done with the use of dental bridges, which are porcelain restorations used within the dental arch. These restorations are custom-made and blend in perfectly with the smile, restoring aesthetics and function.
Titanium posts such as these are implanted into the jawbone and restored with a dental crown to act as a false tooth when natural teeth have been lost or extracted. This method of restoration can repair a smile for a lifetime, making it a highly desirable solution for many patients.
Traditional metal bracket and wire braces make many teenagers and adults reconsider improving the alignment of their smiles, but Dr. Michael Stern offers a wide range of orthodontic alternatives, which include Invisalign, ClearCorrect, and Ortho-Tain. All of these are effective methods of enhancing the alignment of the smile to improve aesthetics and health.
Veneers are used to disguise imperfections of the natural teeth. When teeth are too short, discolored, misaligned, broken, or chipped, they have a negative impact on the appearance of the smile. By covering them with these thin shells of porcelain, patients can dramatically improve their smiles quickly and easily.
