Preserve Dentistry offers many procedures to perfect your smile and improve your quality of life through our cosmetic and corrective dental services. We can provide services from a simple tooth enhancement, all the way to a customized teeth alignment program. Some of the more popular procedures we offer are listed and explained below.
Crowns or caps, as they are sometimes called, are a type of dental restoration that is used to restore a tooth that is badly decayed, broken or cracked. Crowns are sometimes utilized to improve the appearance when patients have esthetic concerns about their smile. Crowns are fabricated in a dental laboratory by skilled dental technicians. We use only local dental labs for our crown and bridge work.
Dental veneers are a porcelain restoration that improves the appearance of teeth that are misshaped, discolored, malpositioned or otherwise esthetically unpleasant. They are bonded to the outer surface of a tooth and can protect damaged teeth from needing further treatment.
This procedure helps brighten your smile by removing stains and making your teeth shine using a gel and tray application. Our whitening can be customized to your need for brightness leaving you with an improved smile in just a couple weeks.
A modern approach to teeth straightening with a series of clear aligners that you wear customized to your bite. Every couple of weeks you switch to another set of aligners that will slowly move your teeth into the correct position. This is a great alternative to metal braces because they are almost invisible to the eye and require little attention during the straightening process. To learn more, click here.
Night Guard/Snore Guard
A night guard is a plastic, flexible mouth guard that helps prevent the jaw from clenching and the teeth from grinding at night. When left untreated, clenching and grinding can lead to breaking down existing restorations or creating new dental problems. A snore guard is two plastic mouth guards that are placed on the top and bottom teeth. These prop the airway open allowing the user to breathe easy and can possibly eliminate snoring all together.
Athletic Mouth guard
Athletic mouth guards are recommended by the American Dental Association for any individual that plays a sport where contact may be involved. Many sports injuries happen to the jaw, mouth, and brain. Wearing a custom fitted mouth guard is a proactive way to protect these areas and keep you in the game.
