Dental Sealant for Children

An Easy Preventive Treatment for Children and Adolescents

If bacteria are not cleaned off the surface of the teeth, it will lead to decay. Any size cavity is permanent damage and will need a restoration of a filling or crown. Often the bacteria in the grooves of back teeth are missed, and plaque will build up and eventually lead to decay. 

An excellent preventive treatment is one application of a dental sealant. After all teeth are cleaned and sterilized, one thin coating is applied to all the surfaces of teeth. It is transparent and invisible. To bond the sealant to teeth, the dentist uses a curing light. And that is the entire procedure that takes just minutes. No shots or drilling are necessary. It is quick, easy, and does much to prevent the onset of decay both for children and teens.

Dental Veneers

Straight Teeth in Only Two Visits

Don't let a smile with deep discoloration, wide gaps, or crooked teeth keep you from moving forward to a beautiful smile. In just two visits, these problems can be corrected and give you a smile that looks like you had years of straightening. Porcelain veneers are hard, thin sheets of the best dental ceramic that are bonded to your teeth. It will quickly and painlessly provide a straight, even smile.
Veneers are also the answer to a broken or cracked tooth. They can reshape a worn or misshapen tooth as well. They will bond to the natural tooth to conceal the problem. The shade of the veneer will match the surrounding teeth to give a very natural look to your smile.

Great Ways to Improve Your Smile # 3

Veneers
Veneers are thin shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. Unlike bonding, it is necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your tooth to accommodate the shell. Based on a model of your mouth, they are meant to look like your natural teeth.

Great Ways to Improve Your Smile # 2

Crowns
A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. Crowns can also be used to attach bridges, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken.
