Veneers are used to recreate the natural look of teeth and fix cosmetic dental problems such as chipped, misshapen, discolored and/or broken teeth and gaps. They are very thin, almost invisible and the material bonds to teeth to remain sturdy and resistant to stains. Each veneer is unique as a snowflake, and our team is dedicated to creating personalized veneers to fit your smile.
Metal Free Dentistry
Since we are a mercury-free office due to the extremely toxic and harmful substance in amalgam fillings, we do not use silver fillings and have eliminated toxic materials. If your previous dental office used these metals, we can remove and detoxify your body to neutralize the free radicals in infected cells. If mercury caused any harm to your body, the effects will be reversed once the metal filling is removed. There is hope at Dr. Zak’s office!
Porcelain crowns appear more natural than crowns with a metal lining as light is able to pass through them as it does with real teeth. Crowns made of porcelain or porcelain fused to metal are extremely useful and beneficial as they can fix broken or fractured teeth, improve teeth after a root canal, or fix discolored/misshapen teeth.
Get ready to wow the world with your soon–to-be pearly whites! Our office provides our patients with many whitening solutions to suit specific dental needs, whether you drink a gallon of black coffee per day, drink barrels of red wine, or smoke cigarettes. In-office whitening is a chemically activated whitening treatment that can provide amazing results within an hour. This process is safe and performed under dentist supervision.
Composite (White) Fillings
Our mercury-free office uses composite white fillings, which are made of a resin material that resembles the tooth’s color and is also a strong restoration technique. We’ll spare you the chemistry lesson, but in a nutshell, composite fillings leave the mechanical lock and drillings unnecessary. The resulting filling is smaller, and the tooth is sturdier due to the resin material that helps glue it together.
Inlays and Onlays vs. Crowns
Inlays, onlays, crowns, oh my! Let’s dive into the basics.
Crowns, or caps, cover the whole tooth, and replace a greater portion of the real tooth than inlays and onlays. Our office is more inclined to recommend inlays and onlays since they preserve more of the natural tooth. Crown placement can reduce existing tooth structure, which can in turn increase the potential need for a root canal or periodontal health problems since the crown impairs cleaning near the gum. A crown is a great solution if a tooth has already undergone a root canal procedure or is heavily decayed. As with other procedures and options, our staff will assist you in choosing the right restoration option.
