Fillings, Crowns and Root Canals

In the past, dental procedures like fillings, crowns and root canals could be painful and complicated. But thanks to today’s technology, these procedures are now quick and relatively painless ways to take care of your smile.

In this video, you’ll learn what more about fillings, crowns, and root canals. Fillings restore teeth damaged by decay, usually in just one office visit. If a tooth is particularly damaged or misshapen, you may need a crown to cover it. A crown is placed over the damaged tooth, and impressions are made so that it looks and feels like your original tooth.

During a root canal, your dentist will clean out the pulp that has been damaged or decayed and fill the tooth to prevent future infection. For more information on these common dental procedures, watch this full clip.

A Look at Your Teeth Whitening Options

Teeth are one of the best indicators of overall general health and quality of life. In part because of this, the state of our teeth has a disproportionate effect on how we are perceived. As a result, many people feel uncomfortable about their teeth if they are stained or dark. Fortunately, several cosmetic dentistry procedures can whiten your teeth to improve the aesthetics of your smile.

In-Office Whitening

In-office whitening is the quickest and easiest way to dramatically improve your smile. There are two basic forms of in-office whitening. The basic gel method uses a bleaching compound to remove stains from enamel and lighten the underlying dentin. After cleaning your teeth and covering your gums with a protective barrier, your dentist will apply the gel to your teeth, reapplying it periodically for thirty minutes to an hour. Laser bleaching uses a light-sensitive gel that harnesses laser energy to lighten the teeth. This process is faster than traditional gel whitening, although both are quick, easy, and effective.

At Home Whitening

At home-tray bleaching is an inexpensive and gradual tooth whitening strategy suitable for many patients. Your dentist will take molds of your teeth and use them to cast individualized whitening trays, which are then filled with a whitening gel and worn for one to two hours a day for several weeks. Although this is a longer process, it often produces the best results.

Over-the-Counter Products

These tooth-whitening products, such as toothpastes, strips, and generic trays, are generally less effective than professional treatments. Although they may be useful for removing superficial stains or maintaining your white teeth after a professional treatment, results are negligible.

Our Manhattan practice provides many different forms of restorative dentistry, and we can help you select the perfect solution for your dental problem.

3 Benefits of Dental Implants

Losing a tooth doesn’t just have cosmetic consequences; a missing tooth can spur systemic oral health problems. Dentures and bridges can correct the aesthetic deficiencies caused by a missing tooth, but they often exacerbate health problems, encouraging gum loss and diminishing oral hygiene. A dental implant, however, is a permanent replacement tooth that can solve both the cosmetic and medical problems posed by a missing tooth.

Protect Surrounding Teeth

Gaps left by missing teeth are ideal habitats for caries-causing bacteria. If patients are not extremely diligent about their oral hygiene after losing teeth, they are at much higher risk for developing cavities and gum disease. By replacing missing teeth with dental implants, dentists can restore the natural profile of teeth and gums and prevent the development of periodontitis.

Prevent Bone Loss

When teeth go missing, the bone matter which previously anchored those teeth to the jaw is resorbed into the body. The longer this bone matter is allowed to decay, the more difficult it can be to install a replacement tooth. Dental implants so accurately mimic natural teeth that they prevent this bone loss. Because dentures, bridges, and other replacements are less permanent, they do nothing to preserve bone matter.

Provide a Permanent Solution

Other types of replacement teeth require special attention and care. Dentures must be removed and cleaned, and many forms of replacement teeth are fragile and delicate. Dental implants, however, are permanently attached to the jaw and can be treated like natural teeth. As long as patients maintain good oral hygiene, they will be doing enough to maintain their dental implants.

If you’re interested in dental implants to replace the space left by your missing tooth, Charles M. Marks, D.D.S. can help. Our Manhattan practice provides many different forms of restorative dentistry, and we can help you select the perfect solution for your dental problem.
