CROWNS AND BRIDGES
Crowns reinforce teeth weakened by tooth decay, fillings or root canals. They protect the teeth and help them resist pressure. Plus, they can correct discoloured, malformed or malpositioned teeth.
Patients may sometimes feel that the look of their smile is not at its best. In such cases, instead of restoring or replacing their teeth, patients can opt for partial reconstruction procedures that involve the use of porcelain veneers that gives the tooth a natural look.
Composite veneers are an economical alternative to porcelain and often require a more conservative procedure. They are made by the dentist a without any lab work. Composite veneers are as beautiful as porcelain.
Claude Landry Dental Clinic is equipped to evaluate your needs in terms of implantology likewise to restore your implant.
Dental implants are durable and an ideal way to replace one or more missing teeth. The implant is done in two steps. The first step is a surgical procedure where the dentist painlessly inserts a titanium screw to act as a replacement root for the tooth. In the second step, or prosthetic phase, consists of adding a titanium crown on the implant to create a replacement tooth. Dental implants are strong and will last many years. On occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.
ZOOM!® CHAIRSIDE WHITENING SYSTEM
A pearly-white smile is beautiful to look at and can greatly improve self-confidence. Many people are opting for the Zoom!® Chairside Whitening System (Zoom!®) for fast, safe and effective teeth whitening. Zoom!® combines the newest advances in dental technology with proven chemical formulas. This ensures that the bleaching experience is painless, and the results are satisfying.
The most popular method is using a home kit whitening system that will whiten your teeth dramatically. Since teeth whitening only works on natural tooth enamel, it is important to evaluate the replacement of any old fillings, crowns, etc. Replacement of any restorations will be done after bleaching so they will match the newly bleached teeth. This type of teeth whitening usually requires two visits. At the first appointment, impressions (molds) will be made of your teeth to fabricate custom, clear, plastic, trays. At your second appointment, you will try on the trays for proper fit, and adjustments will be made if necessary. The trays are worn with a special whitening solution either 2 hours a day or overnight for a couple of weeks depending on the degree of staining and desired level of whitening.
