Teeth

.............................................................................

You deserve a gorgeous smile and the confidence
to share it with the world.

A beautiful smile starts with a healthy mouth and strong teeth. Dr. Purpura and team will help you restore and maintain good oral health, but we can also help you take your smile one step further using cosmetic dentistry.

We can evaluate your smile, discuss what your idea smile would look like, and recommend a cosmetic dental treatment plan to deliver the smile you've always wanted. Cosmetic dentistry can help you enjoy a beautiful smile.

Teeth whitening is a fast and simple way to erase teeth stains and discolorations that detract from a fresh, youthful appearance. We can create a whole new look for you with other cosmetic dentistry treatment options such as beautiful, lifelike porcelain veneers, crowns, tooth-colored fillings, and/or dental implants.

Bleaching

This process uses oxygen to decrease the color of the tooth, making it lighter, with no harmful effects to the enamel. We recommend a one and a half hour in office procedure, which uses light to drive the oxygen deeper into the tooth. This can then be followed with an at-home maintenance schedule to keep the teeth their brightest.

 

Porcelain Veneers

A covering is placed over the front part of the teeth to make them more beautiful in color and shape. Extremely little if any tooth reduction is performed.

 

Bonding or White Fillings

A long with the ability to create a natural untouched appearance to the tooth, today's white fillings can strengthen and protect the tooth as well. This is done by becoming part of the tooth both mechanically and molecularly. Some white fillings also release fluoride into the tooth to protect against further decay. White fillings are used in both the front and back of the mouth.


Inlay / Onlay

By using a combination of composite and porcelain, a severely damaged tooth can be restored to function and beauty without having to remove more healthy tooth structure. Inlays are used to replace the valley or fossa part of the tooth, and Onlays are used to replace the mountain or cusp part of the tooth.


Inlays / Onlays Bridges

By joining two inlays or onlays and adding reinforced fibers, a missing tooth can be replaced conservatively.


Crowns

A crown is a cap or total covering for a tooth which has been severely damaged. Although, usually made out of porcelain fused to metal, no-metal full porcelain crowns can be made in some situations.

 

Crown and Bridge

A bridge connects two or more crowns connected together to replace one or more missing teeth.


Implants

The placement of a Titanium anchor in the bone allows the replacement of missing teeth. The missing tooth can be placed in permanently, or the implants can allow for a firmer fitting removable denture.


Complete and Partial Dentures

A removable prosthesis replaces all (complete) or some (partial) of the teeth and the bony structure of the mouth which were lost to disease or trauma.


No Drill Fillings (Microabrasion)

This system uses air and sand-like particles to gently blow away the decay from a tooth. This leaves a healthier tooth structure. There are no drills used and often no shots needed.

 

No Metal Crowns

With wing support, saves tooth from extraction.




A beautiful and healthy smile is only a step away.
