Town Center Dentistry Products & Services:


Bonding

A bonding is a composite resin that is used as an alternative to amalgams and veneers.  This is an excellent cosmetic option for those patients who do not want the look of silver and do not want the expense of veneers.  A bonding is matched to the color of your natural teeth.  Bondings can be used on teeth that are decayed, cracked, or stained.


Bridges
A bridge, by definition, is a link or connection between two permanent structures.  A dental bridge is very similar in that it attaches the restorative teeth (bridge) to the natural teeth on either side of the gap.  This bridge acts as your new teeth, closing the gap and restoring your smile.  Bridges are often constructed of gold or metal foundations with porcelain fused to the foundation.  This ensures that the bridge will support the normal functions of the mouth.

Crown Lengthening
A crown lengthening is often done to allow for restorative dentistry to be achieved.  It is also done to improve a smile that shows too much of your gums.  During the gum lengthening procedure,
own Center Dentistry will reshape your gum line to expose more of the natural tooth.

Crowns
As we get a little older, our teeth begin to change and are prone to decay.  There are many possible reasons for this change in your smile.  These reasons can include bruxism (teeth grinding), general decay, cracked fillings, root canals, and many others.  If your tooth is beyond repair with a filling material,
Town Center Dentistry may recommend that the best viable option to save the tooth is a full crown.  The reasons for this type of restoration in a badly damaged tooth are durability, cosmetic appearance, and overall support of the chewing function.

Dental Hygiene
In addition to the meticulous cleaning, polishing, and examination of your teeth, we also take the time to help our patients develop proper oral hygiene habits at home. 
Town Center Dentistry will evaluate your hygiene techniques and make adjustments to your routine where needed.  Town Center Dentistry doctors and hygienists will also make suggestions for preventative measures such as dental sealants or night guards to protect against bruxism and TMJ.

Extractions
During the procedure, the patient will be given a general or local anesthetic.  This decision will be determined by the difficulty of the extraction as well as the individual needs of the patient.  In the case of an impacted tooth, the gum and overlying bone tissue will be removed to expose the tooth.  The dentist will then rock the tooth back and forth to loosen it in the jawbone.  The tooth is extracted and sutures may be placed to secure the site.  A blood clot will form in the area where the tooth was removed.  It is important to be very careful with the site within the first 24-48 hours following extraction.

Inlays/Onlays
Inlays and onlays are sometimes referred to as partial crowns.  These partial crowns are utilized when there is still a healthy enamel portion of the tooth.  An inlay or onlay is like a puzzle piece that will be fitted into the remaining portion of the tooth to help increase its strength.  This piece is usually crafted out of porcelain or gold, but can also be made of a composite material. 
Town Center Dentistry will make the determination as to which restoration will work best in your specific situation.

Oral Cancer Screening
During your dental exam,
Town Center Dentistry will check your entire mouth for any lumps or patches.  Screening for early changes in the oral tissue can help detect cancer at a stage when it can be more successfully treated.  When decay occurs below the gum line, it may be necessary to remove a small amount of bone and gum tissue.  Your dentist may ask for this procedure before he or she makes a new crown for your tooth.

Root Canal (Endodontics)
Root Canal, or endodontics, is the process of removing the nerves from the roots of a tooth.  A root canal is often necessary to save an infected tooth.  If an infected tooth is left alone for a long period of time, an abscess can form.  An abscess will show up on an x-ray as a dark spot below the apex of the root.  This is actually bone loss in the jaw.  It is very important to catch this problem before it deteriorates too far.


Scaling and Root Planning
Scaling and root planning often consists of a fine ultrasonic tip being placed between the tooth and gum tissue.  This is done to remove any plaque and calculus buildup below the gum line.  Once the deposits have been removed, the surface of the root is smoothed.  This procedure keeps the area clean and allows the periodontal ligaments to reattach. 
Town Center Dentistry may recommend an antibiotic or prescription mouth rinse to help control the bacteria that cause periodontal disease.  You can expect to be very comfortable during this procedure and there is rarely any pain following the procedure.

Veneers
Porcelain veneers are extremely thin casings of ceramic that are bonded to the front of the patients tooth to create a new smile.  Porcelain veneers are placed over the front of teeth that appear too small or large, slightly discolored, or simply are not cosmetically pleasing to the patient.  For many patients, teeth may have chipped, become discolored, or are slightly crooked.  For the majority of these patients, porcelain veneers can prove to be the perfect solution.

Whitening/Bleaching
Over time our teeth tend to become discolored or stained.  Whether this is from smoking, coffee, or any other foods, a beautiful smile could be closer than you think. 
Town Center Dentistry offers a safe, inexpensive solution to an unsightly smile.  Whitening your teeth is a very simple procedure that can be completed in relatively short period of time.

Zoom! Whitening
Town Center Dentistry's office utilizes the Zoom! chairside whitening procedure as seen on the television show Extreme Makeover.  The procedure for Zoom! Whitening is quick and painless.  The first step is to isolate the teeth and protect the gums and lips.  When this has been accomplished, the whitening gel is placed on the teeth.  The gel is activated by a specially designed light that is directed at the teeth.  The entire procedure takes just over an hour.  The results are usually between 6 and 10 shades whiter.
