Composite Resin Fillings

After successfully removing a cavity, a filling is required to safely seal the tooth or molar. Composite fillings are a mixture of glass or quartz filler in a resin medium that produces a tooth-colored filling. They are sometimes referred to as composites or filled resins. Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fracture in small-to-mid-size restorations that need to withstand moderate chewing pressure. Less tooth structure is removed when the dentist prepares the tooth, and this may result in a smaller filling than that of an amalgam. Composites can also be "bonded" or adhesively held in a cavity, often allowing the dentist to make a more conservative repair to the tooth.

Our network of specialists offers cavity removals and resin fillings starting at $80.

Complicated Impaction

An impacted tooth is a common dental condition occurring when a tooth fails to fully "emerge" from the gums. Most teeth break through the gums in a timely and appropriate fashion, but sometimes misalignment or injury prevents proper growth out of the gums or bones. If these teeth partially emerge they may trap food or bacteria in the soft tissue around them, which causes the gums and surrounding tissue to rot, giving rise to a foul odor called pericoronitis. The most common teeth to become impacted are the third molars or "wisdom teeth." Because they erupt so late in life and because most people's jaws are not large enough to accommodate them, wisdom teeth can twist, tilt, and disrupt the natural placement of teeth within the mouth. Without correction through removal or realignment, the damage to the mouth can be both painful and permanent.

Our network of specialists offers prices that start at $210 for the removal of each one of the wisdom teeth, and $300 for a complicated impaction.

Extraction

A dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Dental Whitening

If you are a candidate for bleaching, your dentist may suggest a procedure that can be done in his or her office. This procedure is called chairside bleaching and may require more than one office visit. Each visit may take from 30 minutes to one hour. During chairside bleaching, the dentist will apply either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect the oral soft tissues. A bleaching agent is then applied to the teeth, and a special light may be used to enhance the action of the agent. Lasers have been used during tooth whitening procedures to enhance the action of the whitening agent.

Whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. For example, yellow-ish hued teeth will probably bleach well, brownish-colored teeth may bleach less well, and grayish-hued teeth may not bleach well at all. Likewise, bleaching may not enhance your smile if you have had bonding or tooth-colored fillings placed in your front teeth. The whitener will not affect the color of these materials, and they will stand out in your newly whitened smile. In these cases, you may want to investigate other options, like porcelain veneers or dental bonding.

Our network offers prices for whitening that start at $90 per tooth or $250 for a full in-office treatment.

Implants

Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums during a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture. Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and some people also find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes. Candidates for dental implants need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. A thorough evaluation by your dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants.

Implants are placed in two stages. First, surgery is performed to place the implant's anchor. This usually takes several hours and the area is then left to heal by itself and for the bone to hold it firmly in place for more than two months. In some cases, a second surgery is required in order to attach a post that will connect the anchor to the replacement teeth. After the gums have had several weeks to heal, the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. This takes a few days of testing and adjustments until the new tooth has a perfect fit.

Our network of specialists offers implants, including the two sessions required and a Zirconium Crown starting at $1,600.

Crowns

In some restoration cases, there is not enough tooth left after cavity removals and a crown must be used to restore the piece to its normal shape and size. A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can also be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking, or restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It's also used to cover a dental implant.

If your dentist recommends a crown, it's probably to correct one of these conditions. Crowns are custom made to replicate the shape and color of the tooth they are replacing and might be made of base metals, gold, porcelain, or other ceramic materials like zirconium, which are the most advanced and expensive.

Our network of specialists offers crowns with prices between $355 (Porcelain on non-precious metal) and $505 (Porcelain-Zirconium).

Veneers

There's no reason to put up with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, badly shaped or crooked. Today a veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct nature's mistake or the results of an injury and help you to have a beautiful smile. Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They're made by a dental technician, usually in a dental lab, working from a model provided by your dentist. You should know that this is usually an irreversible process, as it's necessary to remove a small amount of enamel from your teeth to accommodate the shell. Your dentist may recommend that you avoid some foods and beverages that may stain or discolor your veneers such as coffee, tea or red wine. Sometimes a veneer might chip or fracture. But for most people the results are more than worth it.

Our network of specialists offers Porcelain Veneers starting at $350 per tooth.

Bridges

If you're missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. There are options to help restore your smile. Bridges help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth. Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The restoration can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist. An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under the gum tissue. Depending on which type of bridge your dentist recommends, its success depends on its foundation. So it's very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.

Our network of specialists offers Bridges of different types starting at $880.

Dentures

If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost. There are various types of complete dentures. A conventional full denture is made and placed in the patient’s mouth after the remaining teeth are removed and tissues have healed which may take several months. An immediate complete denture is inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed. The dentist takes measurements and makes models of the patient’s jaws during a preliminary visit. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. Even if you wear full dentures it is still very important to take good care of your oral hygiene.

Endodontics

Root Canal

A special dental procedure also called endodontic therapy, that may save a tooth with an infected nerve. It consists of a sequence of treatments for the pulp of a tooth with the end result being the elimination of infection and protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion. After the pulp has been removed, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then, your dentist places a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger. Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving only one to three visits.

Our specialists offer this procedure at $260.

Apicoectomy

An endodontic surgical procedure also known as root end surgery, whereby a tooth`s root tip is removed and a root end cavity is prepared and filled with a biocompatible material. This is usually necessary when a conventional root canal therapy has failed and a re-treatment has been unsuccessful or was not advised.

These state-of-the-art procedures make use of microsurgical techniques, such as a dental operating microscope, micro instruments, ultrasonic preparation tips and calcium-silicate based filling materials.

Periodontics

Scaling

Periodontal scaling procedures include the removal of plaque, calculus and stains from the crown and root surfaces of teeth. Another similar procedure, root planing is a specific treatment that removes the roughened cementum and surface dentin that is impregnated with calculus, microorganisms and their toxins. Scaling and root planing are often referred to as deep cleaning, and may be performed using a number of dental tools, including ultrasonic instruments and hand instruments, such as periodontal scalers and curettes. These procedures are not limited to patients with periodontal disease as they are also performed as a preventive cleaning measure in most patients.

Gingivectomy

This is a periodontal surgical procedure which includes the removal of ginger tissue in order to achieve a more esthetic appearance and/or functional contour. Gingivectomies are frequently performed using electrosurgery to cauterize away the undesired gum tissue.

Bone Graft

This is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with material from the patient's own body, an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute. Bone grafting is used to repair bone fractures that are extremely complex, pose a significant health risk to the patient, or fail to heal properly.

Gingival Graft

A gingival graft (also called gum graft or periodontal plastic surgery) is a generic name for any of a number of surgical periodontal procedures whose combined aim is to cover an area of exposed tooth root surface with grafted oral tissue. The covering of exposed root surfaces accomplishes a number of objectives: the prevention of further root exposure, decreased or eliminated sensitivity, decreased susceptibility to root caries and improved cosmetic beauty. These procedures are usually performed by a dental specialist in the field of gingival tissue, known as a periodontist, but may be performed by a general dentist having training in these procedures. Types of gingival grafts include:

A free gingival graft is a dental procedure where a layer of tissue is removed from the palate of the patient's mouth and then relocated to the site of gum recession. It is stitched into place and will serve to protect the exposed root as living tissue. The donor site will heal without damage. This procedure is often used to increase the thickness of very thin gum tissue.

A subepithelial connective tissue graft takes tissue from under healthy gum tissue in the palate, which may be placed at the area of gum recession. This procedure has the advantage of excellent predictability of root coverage, as well as decreased pain at the palatal donor site compared to the free gingival graft. The subepithelial connective tissue graft is a very common procedure for covering exposed roots.

An acellular dermal matrix (such as Alloderm) graft uses donated medically-processed human skin tissue as a source for the graft. The advantage of this procedure is that there is no need for a palatal donor site.

A lateral pedicle graft, or pedicle graft, takes tissue from the area immediately adjacent to the damaged gingiva. However, this option is not always available since there must be sufficient tissue immediately lateral to the area of interest. When this procedure is performed, the transplant tissue is cut away and rotated over the damaged area. This can place the donor area at risk of recession as well. Coronally and apically positioned flaps (although they are technically not grafting procedures) are other forms of a pedicle grafts in which gingival tissue is freed up and moved either coronally or apically. This requires adequate thickness and width of gingival tissue at the base of the recession defect.
