You’re probably familiar with silver-colored fillings that darken with age. While we can provide these, they newer alternative is too-colored fillings that match the enamel of your own teeth. This material can also be used to change the size, color and shape of teeth, particularly in the front of the mouth, making them appear more straight or even.
Dental bridges fill the space formerly occupied by missing teeth, usually fused between two porcelain crowns. Bridges are a less expensive alternative to dental implants and come in three different types: traditional fixed, resin bonded and cantilevered, where teeth are only located on one side of an open space. For bridge and crown work, we rely on Natural Smiles in Salem and their team of Cosmetic Dentists.
Dental crowns cover the entire portion of what is left of a tooth after decay has been removed and add strength, durability and tooth stability. Three different types are available: all porcelain, used primarily for front teeth; porcelain fused to metal to affect strength and a natural appearance, and; metal, usually gold, when appearance is not a factor and durability is.
Sometimes teeth can’t be saved. There may be too much decay or impaction or other problems necessitate removal. In these instances, teeth need to be removed. Extraction is divided into two categories: simple or surgical. Simple extractions involve teeth at are visible in the mouth and a performed under local anesthesia. Surgical extractions are usually reserved for issued such as impacted wisdom teeth that are underneath the gums.
Veneers are another affordable way to correct chipped or cracked teeth. These custom shells placed over teeth can correct color shape and other irregularities and provide a life-like appearance.
