Replacing Missing Teeth

A six-year old who just lost a baby tooth and now has a gappy smile is adorable. She’s growing up! But add twenty, thirty, forty or more years to her age and a gap in her smile is no longer cute. We have a number of different options to restore your smile if you are missing teeth. Here are some of the options that may be right for you:

  • Tooth-supported fixed bridge
  • Removable partial dentures
  • Resin-bonded bridge (aka Maryland bridge)
  • Dental implants

Repairing Chipped Teeth

If you have ever chipped or broken a tooth, especially if it is one of the teeth that are closer to the center of your smile, you know how much it can alter your smile. But chipped and broken teeth can also be more susceptible to infection so it’s important that you see a dentist as soon as possible. Here are some of the ways we can treat chipped or broken teeth, to restore both their look and to keep your tooth safe:

  • Dental bonding with tooth-colored material
  • Dental cap or crown
  • Dental veneer
  • Dental implant

Improving Discolored Teeth

Whether you have just one discolored tooth or you want to enhance the look of all of your teeth, you may have wondered what options you have to get your pearly whites, pearly white again. The cause of the discoloration may, in part, determine what procedure is best for you. If you’ve always had yellowish teeth, if they’ve grown darker over time, or if the discoloration was caused by damage to the tooth – no matter what the reason for the discoloration is, we have ways of fixing it.

  • Whitening procedures
  • Crowns
  • Dental bonding
  • Porcelain veneers

Improving Crooked Teeth

Most Americans today do not have naturally straight teeth, but straightening has become one of the most common dental procedures, especially for teens and young adults.

  • Removable retainers
  • Metal braces
  • Clear braces
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Invisalign®

Health-Related Reasons to Pursue Cosmetic Dentistry

While many of our patients seek these adjustments to their smile for cosmetic purposes, there are health-related reasons that otherwise cosmetic fixes may be necessary or helpful.

For instance, crooked teeth leave odd gaps between teeth or force teeth to cross over one another, making it hard or even impossible to thoroughly clean some of the tooth area. This can lead to plaque and tartar build up and, eventually, the formation of cavities. Similarly, chipped, broken, or cracked teeth usually provide a gap in the tooth enamel through which bacteria can enter into the tooth and cause a cavity. Missing teeth can cause troubles with eating and lead to malnutrition.

Therefore, we encourage you to speak to Dr. Sheehan about any cosmetic procedures you may be considering because there may be more important reason to do the procedures, other than simply fixing your smile.

That being said, a straighter, brighter, more beautiful smile can bring a lot of good to our lives and the lives of those around us so let us help you get the Smile Makeover you’ve been waiting for.
