Whether a person’s bite is uneven or the teeth are crooked, stained, dull, chipped or even missing an imperfect smile can cause a lack of confidence or lowered self-esteem. The good news is that nobody has to live with a smile that they don’t feel confident showing to the world. Our Monroe Falls cosmetic dentist at State Valley Dental can remake your smile and get rid of the imperfections so you can proudly put your best smile forward.
There are several procedures that our Monroe Falls cosmetic dentist can perform to help your smile depending, of course, on exactly what is wrong with it. A common complaint is that a patient’s mouth contains one or several teeth that are chipped, stained or cracked. Depending on the extent of the stain, crack or chip our dentist can fix the problem using either a porcelain veneer or crown. For surface cracks or chips on the front of a tooth or a stain a porcelain veneer might be the best approach. A veneer is a thin sheet of a porcelain material that is shaped to fit over the front of the tooth and cover the imperfection without damaging the underlying tooth any further. For more extensive repairs our dentist uses a porcelain crown, which is fabricated to exactly mimic the shape and size of the natural tooth and is placed over the tooth. First the tooth is prepared for the crown by having some of the natural material removed.
A very common procedure that our Monroe Falls cosmetic dentist performs is whitening dull or discolored teeth. As people age and eat, drink and sometimes smoke teeth yellow and dull needing expert whitening to restore their original luster. Our practice can perform the whitening procedure in our office in just one visit or supply our patients with an at-home whitening kit that they can use in the convenience of their homes. The results of either of these whitening procedures are teeth that are several shades whiter. Our dentist can also restore injured teeth and replace missing teeth that have been lost to decay, injury or have been extracted through either a dental implant or the use of bridges or dentures. Our orthodontic programs will straighten crooked teeth and fix malocclusions. Don’t live with a smile you don’t like call our office for an appointment.

When you have a missing tooth or a broken one, turn to us at State Valley Dental. We offer options that will suit your individual needs and budget, including dentures, bridges, implants, and crowns, even ones that can done same day.
A broken tooth may still be viable. So long as there is no significant damage to the root, you should be able to have it saved with the placement of a crown, which in addition to protecting it from infection and contamination, will also restore it to its full size, giving you the aesthetic benefit to keep your smile looking its best. Our Stow cosmetic dentist provides traditional crowns, in which impressions are taken and sent to a dental lab. However, if you would like to save the additional trip back to our office and take advantage of the most advanced technology in tooth restoration, you can get a CEREC single visit crown. There are no messy impressions required, and your crown is made right here in our office while you wait. Yet, it’s just as strong, attractive, and effective as any other crown. When it’s not a partial tooth, but a whole one you need, our Stow cosmetic dentist can provide fixed bridges and partial or complete removable dentures. These are traditional full-tooth restorations that have stood the test of time. They are cost-effective and can be made in a reasonable amount of time. Or you can consider a dental implant, which looks, feels, and acts like a natural tooth, because it replaces not only the tooth on top of your gums, but also the root beneath. It is the state-of-the-art when it comes to replacing missing teeth, and can even be used as a foundation for dentures, giving you the best benefits of both types of restoration.

When a tooth is broken, chipped or is missing it not only looks bad but it can lead to the loss of the tooth or in the case of a missing tooth a shifting of the adjacent teeth. It is important to restore cracked and broken teeth and to replace any teeth that are missing. Our Stow cosmetic dental office at State Valley Dental has been restoring broken teeth and replacing missing teeth in the community. Advances in dentistry have made the process of restoring and replacing teeth more effective bringing about fully functional teeth that blend in perfectly with the rest of the patient’s natural teeth.
Our Stow cosmetic dental office has several different techniques to mend cracked and broken teeth. For those teeth that are cracked, chipped, stained or have other slight damages to the front of the tooth our doctor will place a porcelain veneer over it. These veneers an extremely thin sheets of a porcelain material that is shaped to fit over the tooth exactly and colored to match the adjacent teeth. The veneers cover the cracks and chips to protect the tooth from further damage while increasing the attractiveness of the tooth. For teeth that are broken, have large cavities, deep cracks or have undergone endodontic treatments our practice will place a crown over the tooth. The crown is made of a porcelain material and completely encapsulates the top of the tooth sealing it from bacteria and debris and protecting it. The crown becomes the new chewing surfaces of the tooth. Crowns are matched to the adjacent teeth in terms of size, shape and color. Crown can take several visits to place them permanently on the tooth. Our practice employs an innovative technology system called Cerec Single Visit Crowns, which uses computer-assisted design software and a unique computerized milling machine to create a crown in our office as you wait, your crown is placed right after the tooth is prepared for it with no other office visit needed.
If a tooth or teeth are missing our Stow cosmetic dental practice will use a dental implant to replace it. Our doctor opens the gum where the tooth is missing and surgically implants a titanium anchor into the bone. Over time the anchor will bond with the bone forming an extremely strong and secure root for the new tooth. Once the area has healed and the anchor has bonded with the bone it will be topped with a porcelain crown to form the replacement tooth. A bridge is another way that a tooth can be replaced. There are several types of bridges depending on the number of teeth to be replaced and their location but the basic bridge suspends an artificial tooth or teeth between the two adjacent teeth on either side. Crowns that are part of the bridge are placed on these adjacent teeth. Dentures are used to replace a full jaw of teeth; a denture is a series of artificial teeth placed in a gum-like material that is worn over the patient’s gum attached by either dental adhesive or a series of implanted anchors. Don’t let broken or missing teeth stop you from smiling, call our office for an appointment.
