Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth made of titanium or zirconia (a strong metal-free ceramic). Dental implants are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone under local anesthesia or conscious sedation. Depending on the quality of bone, it is possible to place a tooth or an entire arch of teeth on a dental implant at the time of surgery; otherwise, after a 3 month healing period, teeth can then be attached to the dental implant. Dental implants are very natural-looking and will enhance or restore a patient’s smile! They are a growing phenomenon in replacing missing teeth, and may even be used to replace multiple missing teeth as an alternative to dentures.
ESTHETIC DENTURES and partial dentures
Dentures don't have to look artificial, nor should you need to use adhesive to keep a denture in your mouth. The fabrication of a natural-looking , comfortable and beautiful denture is an art form in and of itself. By taking into account age, hair color, skin tone, eye color, lip support and personality, the Core Smiles team can fabricate a denture for you that fits impeccably well and that looks incredibly natural.
We use the GLO Professional Whitening System and KöR Deep Bleaching System, which works well for Tetracycline-stained teeth. Both procedures have been thoroughly studied for effectiveness and safety.
Invisalign® is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces. Invisalign® uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Because the treatment involves clear braces, you will not have to worry about the embarrassment that is often associated with traditional metal braces. Invisalign® has been proven effective in clinical research.
Veneering a tooth means to cover its surface. They are used to enhance the shape as well as the color of a set of teeth. A veneer also closes spaces between teeth. As we get older, we wear down our teeth. Erosion on the front teeth may affect the aesthetics of a smile. Porcelain veneers can completely change the smile of an individual.
