Northfield Teeth Whitening, Dental Implants, Veneers
We now have a special Intra-oral camera that takes close up photographs of the teeth and other oral structures. This camera allows our staff to show patients potential problems such as fractured teeth, broken fillings and decay. We also have a dental digital camera that allows our staff to show patients potential problems such as fractured teeth, broken fillings and decay. We also have a dental digital camera that allows our staff to communicate tooth colors, shapes and critical details to our dental laboratory. This greatly improves the esthetics of our crowns, veneers and bridges.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
We will work with an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance. Click here for more info
Our office utilizes a bleach at home technique. Impressions of your teeth are taken and custom trays are made. Trays are worn for 3-7 days until desired whiteness is achieved.
Crowns and Veneers
You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns (empressed material) on the anterior teeth. For the posterior, we use porcelain fused to metal.
Tooth-colored filings that are light cures to match your teeth. Amalgam: Silver-colored filings, more durable material.
We perform root canals on anterior and premolar teeth.
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
Removable Dental Prosthesis
For missing teeth, we can make dentures or removable partials for you.
