Are you, or any of your family members, afraid to smile because of uneven or crooked teeth? Lake Cities Dental can help!

The value of orthodontic correction lies in its ability to improve the health of the teeth and bite by better alignment and function. Besides improved oral health, patients often realize and value improved facial balance and speech. Orthodontic treatment is a lifelong investment in you – your teeth, your bite and your self-image. It is available to people of all ages, child through adult.

Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture. They can be bonded or adhesively held in the cavity, allowing us to make a more conservative repair to the tooth.

Bonding is tooth-colored material used to fill in gaps or change the color of teeth. Requiring a single office visit, bonding lasts several years.

When teeth are chipped or slightly decayed, bonded composite resins may be the material of choice. Bonding also is used as a tooth-colored filling for small cavities. Additionally, it can be used to close spaces between teeth or cover the entire outside surface of a tooth to change its color and shape.

Porcelain onlays are glass-like fillings that take a minimum of two visits, possibly more. All porcelain (ceramic) restorations are particularly desirable because their color and translucency mimic natural tooth enamel.

crowns & bridges

Crowns are a beneficial way to restore your tooth. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling, be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth, or even restore one that has already been broken. Their durability along with esthetics make crowns a great choice for restorations.

Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth. A bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth have been.

Veneers are a beautiful way to improve smiles with gaps, stains, or even poorly-shaped teeth.

Veneers are ultra-thin shells of ceramic (porcelain) or a composite resin material, which are bonded to the front of teeth. This procedure requires little or no anesthesia and can be the ideal choice for improving the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers are placed to mask discolorations, to brighten teeth and to improve a smile.

example of healthy teeth versus periodonal disease

Periodontal disease is treated according to its severity. We perform procedures such as Perio Protect, Scaling and Root Planning, Periodontal Maintenance, etc.

Several warning signs that can signal a problem:

  • Gums that bleed easily
  • Red, swollen, tender gums
  • Gums that have pulled away from the teeth
  • Persistent bad breath or bad taste
  • Permanent teeth that are loose or separating
  • Any change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
  • Any change in the fit of partial dentures

Inside each tooth is the pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth, it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies.

After we remove the pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then a crown is placed
over the tooth to help make it stronger. Most of the time, root canal therapy is a relatively simple
procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and
your smile!
