Partials and Dentures

Removable Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases. Depending on your needs, Dr. Horgan will design a partial denture for you. A partial denture may have a metal framework and clasps that connect to your teeth, or they can have other connectors that are more natural looking. In some cases, a removable partial denture is made to attach to your natural teeth with devices called precision attachments. Precision attachments are generally more esthetic than clasps. 

Crowns on your natural teeth are sometimes needed to improve the fit of a removable partial denture and they are usually required with attachments. Partial dentures with precision attachments generally cost more than those with clasps. Have a discussion with Dr. Horgan to find out if this is a reasonable option for you.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry includes a variety of dental treatments aimed at improving the appearance of the teeth.

Porcelain Veneers, Crowns & Bridges all share one thing: the useful and natural properties of dental porcelain.

Porcelain is often selected for esthetic reasons because of its remarkable property to mimic natural tooth structure. Today’s materials are lifelike and very durable. Ask our dentists about the dental material choices that may be used to rejuvenate your smile. In addition to being an esthetically pleasing material, porcelain is an exceptionally strong cosmetic tooth-colored material and it can withstand normal dental function superbly.

 

Teeth Whitening is a simple procedure that can make you feel amazing about sharing your smile. The appointment takes less than 30 minutes and your custom whitening trays will be made within a day.  You simply wear the trays with the whiting gel for 1 hour period daily for 7 to 10 days. Or try our in office instant whitening options for even greater results!

CEREC single visit crowns, inlays or onlays

PROS of CEREC

 

CEREC crowns are made in one visit, saving considerable time for the patient and also saving time and cost for the dentist.

With CEREC, there is no need for a temporary crown, which eliminates a significant potential discomfort and inconvenience for the patient.

CEREC crowns have no metal in them, and thus are superbly esthetic.

CEREC material and technology can also be used for fillings. Since they are made out of porcelain, they are more durable than white composite fillings.

 

 

Preventative Dentistry and Oral Cancer Screening

Preventative dentistry is the modern way of helping you keep a healthy mouth and smile. It helps you to maintain your teeth, and means you need to have less dental treatment. The two main causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease. The better you prevent or treat these two problems, the less future dental challenges you will face.

When the dental team and patient work together, this can help to prevent the need for treatment - especially fillings and extractions. Your dental team may recommend a course of treatment to get your mouth into good condition, and then work out a ‘maintenance plan' to help you keep it that way.

VELscope technology, uses natural tissue fluorescence to discover abnormalities in the oral mucosa. The VELscope is an extremely effective aid for discovering and defining the extent of a wide range of mucosal abnormalities, including oral cancer. Importantly, VELscope helps you discover problems before they can be seen under ordinary white-light conditions.
