Patients who have extensive damage to their teeth due to an accident or premature wear may require multiple types of treatment to restore the health, comfort, and appearance of their smiles.
At Shoreland Dental, Dr. David Azenheimer has extensive experience in combining various dental treatments in order to give our patients outstanding results.
One of the most common reasons patients experience extensive damage to their teeth is a clenching and grinding habit. Years of nocturnal grinding can take its toll on your smile. Shortened teeth with exposed dentin, chips, cracks, and sensitivity all make day-to-day life difficult. After years of wear, you might feel pain or sensitivity to hot and cold foods.
Dr. Azenheimer can design a treatment plan combining our restorative treatment options to help you regain function and improve your quality of life. Some of the restorative procedures we may recommend when designing a full mouth case include:
Dental crowns – Crowns not only cover and protect your teeth, but can also help rebuild your smile and your bite so you can chew comfortably.
Dental bonding – For chips and minor damage, dental bonding provides a way to fill in or add to your existing tooth structure.
Fillings – Decay can make eating painful and puts your tooth at risk for infection. Unfortunately, with worn teeth and exposed dentin, your teeth are more susceptible to decay. We provide tooth-colored fillings to complement your smile.
Veneers – If your front teeth are too short, porcelain veneers can add length while covering dentin. They can also provide the proper guidance for your bite.
Dental implants – Missing teeth create a host of problems such as bone loss and problems with your bite. Dental implants can complete your chewing surface and your smile. We work in tandem with some of the best oral surgeons in our area to provide patients with outstanding results.
Fixed dental bridges – If you are not a candidate for dental implants or simply want a different option, dental bridges can complete your smile. Dr. Dave takes extra care to make sure they look completely natural.
Like full mouth rehabilitation, full smile makeovers combine various cosmetic treatments to achieve a beautiful outcome. We can combine KöR teeth whitening, tooth-colored fillings and crowns, porcelain veneers, and dental implants to achieve the bright, beautiful smile you have always wanted.
For patients wishing to make smaller changes to the appearance of their smiles, we offer each service individually as well. You will have an opportunity to discuss your goals for your smile with Dr. Dave at your cosmetic dentistry consultation. We look forward to helping you gain greater confidence with a beautiful smile!
We spend plenty of time with each patient so that you can ask all the questions you have had on your mind and learn about how we can help you achieve greater overall health and confidence with a comfortable, beautiful smile!
