I have a gap between my front teeth. What are my options for correcting this?

If your smile has a visible gap, you have treatment choices depending on its size. Our dentists can typically recommend an orthodontics treatment known as Invisalign® clear aligners to correct large gaps. If your gap is moderate or small, it can be corrected with the help of bonding or porcelain veneers. No matter the size of the gap, our dentists will work with you to customize a treatment plan that will leave you with an attractive smile you will be proud to show off.

My silver fillings are old and unattractive, and feel sensitive in my mouth. How can you help?

When old silver fillings start to leak, not only do they look unappealing but they can let in decay and potentially leave you with sensitivity. Our office offers natural-looking composite or tooth-colored fillings and porcelain inlays and onlays to replace worn silver fillings.

What are Invisalign aligners?

When it comes to invisible orthodontics, the Invisalign clear aligner system straightens teeth discreetly. The thin plastic trays are worn over the teeth for about two weeks and then switched out for the next set in the series. You can expect treatment to last for six months to a year, but since the aligners are clear, few people will even notice that you are wearing them. This is good news if you want to create a beautiful smile without the inconvenience of traditional braces.

How much does an implant cost?

The cost of dental implants varies depending on the extent of your treatment.

OK, so what factors increase or decrease the cost?

To get a more accurate assessment of the cost of your dental implant treatment, we recommend seeing our dentists for a free consultation. The cost of dental implants factor in:

  • The number of tooth replacements being done (a single tooth or multiple teeth)
  • The expense of the lab work
  • How much reconstruction will be needed for a successful outcome
  • The location of the tooth being replaced
  • Our potential collaboration with other dental specialists
