Depending on the condition of your gums, we will recommend a preventative treatment/cleaning (for healthy gums) or a type of periodontal therapy (for patients with gingivitis or gum disease) and will customize an ongoing hygiene schedule.
Digital impressions avoid the use of uncomfortable and messy putty trays. This allows for extremely accurate impressions, higher quality outcomes, less chair time, and an improved overall experience.
In most cases, dental implants offer a far superior solution for the replacement of missing teeth when compared to bridges and partial/complete dentures. Dr. Lewis has trained extensively in the restoration of dental implants.
A removable dental prosthesis such as a partial denture or complete denture is an option when multiple teeth are lost. Dentures can be a more functional tooth replacement option when dental implants are added for retention of the prosthesis.
A root canal is a treatment that removes a damaged or dead nerve and replaces it with an inert material. In most cases, we recommend a crown be placed soon after a root canal in order to maintain the strength of the tooth.
Nighttime grinding or clenching of your teeth often leads to significant tooth wear, muscle tightness, and/or pain associated with the jaw joints (the Temporomandibular Joint or “TMJ”). If you are having jaw pain or if we notice excessive amounts of tooth wear, a custom occlusal guard may be recommended.
In cases of fractures, cracks, previous dental restorations, or significant loss of tooth structure, a crown/cap is recommended to restore the tooth. We use the latest technology and highest quality materials and laboratories in order to provide you with a natural-looking and functional restoration.
We use only the best materials available for routine dental fillings and do not use dental amalgam as we believe that modern adhesive dentistry provides a more functional and esthetic option for dental restorations.
A dental bridge is a way to replace one or two missing teeth. A bridge is essentially two or more crowns with a false tooth bonded to them. Bridges leave a lot to be desired functionally, and many times dental implants are a better treatment option.
When optimal esthetics is desired, cosmetic crowns and/or veneers may be an option. Utilizing models of your teeth, pictures, and wax-ups/mock-ups ("trial smile") to plan your treatment, you will have a vision of your new smile before even starting.
