We emphasize the aesthetic aspect in ALL our work because we know that when your smile looks good, you feel good! We use the best combination of preventive care, tooth-colored fillings, and restorative techniques for optimum dental health. Modern smile makeovers are so easy (and affordable!), there’s simply no reason you can’t have the perfectly beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted.
‘Smile Makeovers’ in as Little as Two Visits!
If you have misshapen teeth, unsightly gaps, or deep discoloration, our porcelain veneers may be the answer. This is quickly and painlessly altering crooked teeth so they look like they’ve had years of straightening. Veneers are thin, but very hard, sheets of the most advanced dental ceramic available. They are bonded to natural teeth in a way that makes the teeth appear straight and uniform, creating an attractive smile. Another common dental problem is chipped, cracked, or worn teeth. Veneers can be applied to the tooth to completely conceal the chip or crack and also to reshape a worn or misshapen tooth. The veneer is made to match the color of the surrounding teeth and looks completely natural.
Dental Implant Restoration for a Perfect Smile
Dental implants are the ideal way to replace lost teeth. From the front of the mouth, where they are most visible, to the back, where they provide stability to chew a full variety of foods, implants can help you recapture a beautiful and healthy smile. Unlike bridges or removable dentures, which sit on top of the gums, dental implants are placed under the gums. The “tooth” placed on an implant appears life-like, because it comes through the gums just like the original did – it’s like growing a new tooth!
Implants can be used to replace any number of lost teeth. Even people with no teeth can benefit from implants, because they can replace their dentures with teeth that don’t move around when they talk, and don’t need to be taken out at night. They can also be used to “lock in” dentures for security and improved function. After an oral surgeon places a titanium post, Dr. Lopez will custom-create natural-looking restorations. Get the smile you deserve – permanently!
Teeth Whitening – Dazzling Results!
It’s natural to want brighter teeth! Whiter teeth are healthier looking, and easier to achieve than most people think. The only way to get your teeth their whitest is by using a professionally supervised bleaching process. Dr. Lopez offers custom whitening trays, made in his own lab. You will receive supplies and instructions and you finish the procedure at home. This technique is safe and effective. Results occur within 1 – 14 days.
A Crown Restores a Damaged Tooth
Crowns are sometimes necessary to save a broken or worn-down tooth when a simple filling will not restore it to full functionality. A crown will save and even add strength to the damaged tooth. Our crowns are made of the best-quality materials available. They look so natural, you won’t be able to distinguish your crown from a real tooth. We also offer the option of CEREC™ one-visit crowns, made right here in our office.
An Affordable Alternative for Multiple Missing Teeth
For some patients who have more than one missing tooth, a bridge may be a suitable solution. Custom made with the same high-quality materials, a bridge is anchored on both sides with crowns and fills the gap for a return to function and comfort, as well as a full smile.
