With the help of dental implants, patients can regain the functionality of the mouth and eat, speak, and swallow just like they used to. Dental implants are metal screws implanted into the jawbone, providing a stable and secure base for replacement teeth. With these teeth in place, the effect is transformative, creating a smile that looks beautiful and natural and lasts for a lifetime.
For Elizabethtown patients unhappy with the way their teeth look, veneers are a form of cosmetic dentistry that can help change that. Veneers are thin layers of porcelain that are manufactured in a custom process and painted onto the teeth, covering up chips, staining, gaps, and more. They’re a great way to make the teeth look whiter and more uniform for a smile that sparkles.
Crooked or misaligned teeth can detract from a smile, which is why so many patients turn to Invisalign to help straighten their teeth. Invisalign is a faster and less noticeable alternative to braces that’s far less painful. Patients simply need to wear plastic aligners for 22 hours a day to experience results. These aligners will be replaced every two weeks until the teeth are arranged in perfect alignment.
For Elizabethtown patients who have lost their teeth, dentures are a great way to be able to eat and smile again. We can make dentures with or without implants depending upon what you are a candidate for. Dentures typically fit right over the gums and include teeth that look and feel natural. These allow patients to chew, swallow, and speak like they used to — not to mention flash a gorgeous smile.
If a patient has a chipped, cracked, or missing tooth, same-day crowns are an excellent way to correct these issues. This form of cosmetic dentistry eliminates the waiting period for a crown, as we can etch them right in-office all in one appointment. After carefully scanning the patient’s mouth, we create a 3-D rendering of the crown and use our milling machine to create it in minutes.
