A bridge may be used to replace missing teeth, help maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate stress on your bite.

A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. Your bridge can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support.

The success of any bridge depends on its foundation – the other teeth, gums, or bone to which it is attached. Therefore, it’s very important to keep your existing teeth, gums, and jaw healthy and strong.



Crowns are a cosmetic restoration used to improve your tooth’s shape or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay.

Crowns are “cemented” onto an existing tooth which fully cover the portion of your tooth above the gum line. In effect, the crown becomes your tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns can be made of porcelain, metal, or both. Porcelain crowns are most often preferred because they mimic the translucency of natural teeth and are very strong.

Crowns or onlays (partial crowns) are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. Unlike fillings which apply the restorative material directly into your mouth, a crown is fabricated away from your mouth. Your crown is created in a lab from your unique tooth impression which allows a dental laboratory technician to examine all aspects of your bite and jaw movements. Your crown is then sculpted just for you so your bite and jaw movements function normally once the crown is placed.



If you’re looking for dental implants, you have come to the right place. When you have missing teeth, it is crucial to replace them. Without all your teeth, chewing and eating can destabilize your bite and cause you discomfort. When teeth are missing, your mouth can shift and even cause your face to look older. Implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth, and if properly maintained, can last a lifetime!

An implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain that looks just like your natural tooth. It’s composed of two main parts: One part is the titanium implant body that takes the place of the missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of the implant. With periodontal treatment, you can smile confidently knowing that no one will ever suspect you have a replacement tooth.

In addition to tooth replacement, implants may be used to anchor dentures, especially lower dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. For patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so you have a more natural-looking smile.

Periodontal Therapy


Gum reshaping, otherwise referred to as periodontal therapy, is often considered cosmetic dentistry. Many people will have straight and symmetrical the, but it is diminished because their gum line falls too far below the lip line. The gum may even be uneven, which can lead to a person becoming unhappy with their smile.

Dentists will often referred to gums that extend too far below the lip line as a “gummy” smile. The best solution then becomes gum reshaping.In the past, gum reshaping was done with a scalpel, which lead to bleeding as well as a long and uncomfortable recovery. New technology has made it possible to offer gum reshaping that leads to a virtually painless procedure as well and they fast recovery.

Laser dentistry will utilize a diode laser so that patients can experience perfectly sculpted gums so that they are able to accept their smiles faster than ever before.

A local anesthesia is applied prior to the laser process. This will help to eliminate any kind of discomfort for the patient. A diode laser will then be used by the dentist to cut excess gum tissue away and sculpt the gum line so that it is more uniform and scalloped.

Diode lasers will cauterize as they cut, which reduces the bleeding and dramatically reduces a chance of infection for patients. The entire gum reshaping procedure generally takes one visit to the office.

There may be some swelling or soreness following the gum reshaping procedure. This generally takes no more than a week in order to recover from. It will not interfere with any daily activities, including eating, drinking, or speaking. The only thing that should be avoided is eating foods with seeds or anything spicy several days following the surgery.

With the new technology, gum reshaping can help people to gain a better smile without having any issues with gums standing in the way.
