New Smiles Welcome!
Corrections or improvements to the shade, shape and position of your teeth can be made possible with quality cosmetic dentistry. Transform your smile into your best asset with cosmetic dental treatments! Plaza Dental Group offers an array of options from whitening, white fillings, veneers, crowns and bridges to help you achieve that strong bite and beautiful smile!
Your teeth are composed of two main parts: The Crown is the part visible above the gum. The Root is the part below the gum that holds your tooth firmly in your jaw bone. If the crown of your tooth becomes weakened by decay or fractures, it can be restored and strengthened by an artificial crown. Artificial crowns are covers which fit over a damaged or badly stained tooth. They look natural and require only the same care necessary for your natural crowns. Speak with a team member today if you would like more information.
A bridge is an artificial tooth used to replace one that is missing. It is attached to your neighboring teeth. One of the benefits of using a bridge to replace a missing tooth (or teeth) is how natural it looks and feels. With proper care, bridges can last for years. See us today if you would like to “bridge the gap” in your smile!
Bonding is a painless procedure used to restore damaged, discolored or misaligned teeth. Dr. Gasparaitis applies a plastic putty called Composite Resin to the surface of the tooth, shaping it to cover chips or other problems. The resin is then exposed to a bonding light until hardened. When it has been smoothed and polished, your teeth will look better and feel great!
For many years, silver amalgam has been the standard restorative choice for molar teeth. With the advent of modern technology, composites that match the shade of your tooth are now a great alternative. Composites offer strength, durability and give you a beautiful white smile! If you would like to replace your unsightly amalgam fillings, speak with a team member from Plaza Dental Group today!
Porcelain Veneers are one of the ways many people obtain a beautiful white smile. Veneers are custom-made, ultra-thin, porcelain shells that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth. They are durable and can match the existing color or whiten your natural teeth. In as little as two visits, you can have custom-made veneers permanently bonded to your teeth. Veneers are a great way to correct crooked, cracked, discolored, and misshapen teeth.
Improve your quality of life, dramatically improve your chewing ability and regain your confidence in public with dental implants!
If you are looking for a way to replace a missing tooth that is most similar to your natural one, an implant may be your solution. Dental implants are small, sturdy, titanium posts, that act as the root structure would for a natural tooth. A dental implant is placed into your upper or lower jaw bone. After the bone has grown around the implant, implants can hold a crown, bridge or over-denture just like roots hold natural teeth in place. Implants are very durable and can last a lifetime. They require the same maintenance as natural teeth; this includes brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups.
Dentist-prescribed home whitening is a new whitening alternative. It combines the convenience of at-home whitening products with the assistance and expertise of your dentist. Here’s how it works: We take a model of your teeth and use it to make custom-fitted trays. Then we provide you with instructions for application of the trays, which contains whitening gel. You wear your whitening trays each day for as little as one hour per day, only returning to have the procedure monitored. Patients often see results after the first day. A significant change can be noticed in as little as 3 days. Maximum results will be achieved with use over a 3 to 4 week period. We also offer one-hour whitening in the dental chair, using a special high- intensity light to activate the whitening gel that we apply directly to your teeth. Whether you choose to use whitening trays, or our one-hour chairside whitening or a combination of both treatments, you will see a significant improvement with your smile.
