How can I fix a broken tooth?
Porcelain veneers can reshape teeth, change tooth color, close gaps, and fix worn or chipped teeth to create a white uniform smile. The thin veneers are bonded to the teeth and are nearly invisible. They are also resistant to coffee, tea, and cigarette stains. They greatly resemble healthy white tooth enamel and are strong. At Dr. Zak Dental Care, our team of dentists work with precision to cosmetically improve the look of your teeth, and make sure that your porcelain veneers match the rest of your teeth so that they blend in beautiful.
Metal Free Dentistry
Did you know that metal fillings are bad for your health?
It has been proven that the mercury contained in metal fillings is greatly damaging to the immune system, and they can cause or increase risk in the severity of almost any health condition. Until metal fillings are removed from your teeth, they will continue to create toxicity in your body. At Dr. Zak Dental Care, we are committed to stopping this problem by prohibiting the use of such materials in our dental practice. If you already have metal fillings, we can help design a treatment plan to eradicate these harmful materials and detoxify your body. Once the toxins are absent, the problems they initially caused will begin to reverse as part of the healing process.
What are Zirconia Crowns?
Zirconia Crowns are restorations that are used to repair broken or fractured teeth, improve the prognosis for teeth that have undergone root canals, or change the shape or color of teeth. They appear very natural, unlike traditional crowns which have a metal lining that prevent light from passing through. At Dr. Zak Dental Care, our team of cosmetic dentists will assess the health of your teeth and will recommend the proper crown treatment for your individual needs.
How can I get whiter looking teeth?
Instead of giving up coffee and tea, which give your smile a dull yellow shade, get your teeth whitened! It is safe, effective, and efficient, and can dramatically improve your overall look. We can provide a variety of teeth whitening services that fit your individual needs and budget. Call the Dr. Zak Dental Care office near you to make an appointment and talk to our highly knowledgeable dental staff on which teeth whitening option is best suited for you.
Composite (White) Fillings
What is used to replace metal fillings?
A composite tooth-colored filling is made of a resin material that binds to tooth structure, instead of toxic metal fillings. These fillings provide a robust and aesthetically pleasing tooth restoration. At Dr. Zak Dental Care we use composite (white) fillings in place of harmful metal fillings because they do not contain any mercury or other toxic materials which may negatively affect your health.
Inlays and Onlays vs. Crowns
What is the difference between inlays, onlays and crowns?
Inlays, onlays, and crowns replace varying amounts of tooth structure. Crowns are restorations that cover the whole tooth, whereas inlays and onlays only cover a small portion of the tooth. Crown placement usually requires the removal of more-healthy tooth structure than do inlays and onlays, and this removal can increase the risk of needing a root canal for the tooth in the future. Inlays and onlays help preserve the tooth’s health because they need not be bonded next to the gum line, which can create irritation and difficult cleaning. A crown, however, can be a good option for a tooth that has already undergone a root canal or has insufficient healthy structure to keep from fracturing.
