Direct Cosmetic Restorations improves the appearance of chipped, broken, cracked, and stained teeth or those that have spaces between them. Tooth-colored fillings are highly polished composite resins that are placed on the damaged tooth area. These bonded fillings adhere to the tooth structure, preserving its integrity. They are also very aesthetic, often indistinguishable from natural teeth
A veneers is a thin shell made out of porcelain or composite material that is cemented to the front side of the tooth. Veneers are used to treat slightly crooked teeth, discolored teeth, chipped teeth or to cover spaces in between teeth. A conservative treatment that yields beautiful, natural-looking results.
These custom-fitted dental appliances replace one or more missing teeth and are permanently cemented onto adjacent teeth. They prevent teeth from shifting and help keep your smile intact. Most bridges are made in our on-site laboratory from porcelain, zirconia or zirconia layered with porcelain.
Crowns are dental restorations that cover all or most of the natural tooth. Made of various materials such as porcelain fused to metal, all ceramic or zirconia. They are cemented directly on top of the damaged tooth, becoming the tooth’s new outer surface.
These restorations are a great solution for teeth that have the insufficient structure to support a filling but are not compromised enough to warrant a crown. Inlays and onlays help to conserve more tooth structure because they use minimal removal of a tooth’s surface. They may also reduce the eventual need for more extensive treatment with crowns, bridges or implants.
Modern dentures are now more comfortable, more durable and fit better than ever before. Dr. Fajardo takes into account the patient’s lifestyle, age, face shape and aesthetic concerns to create partial and complete dentures that have the look and feel of natural teeth. Advanced dental materials and techniques, such as the Ivocap system, result in stronger, more personalized dentures that will last for years.
A surgery or extraction means to have a tooth removed, usually because of disease, trauma or crowding. Discomfort will be minimized as much as possible through the use of anaesthesia. The surrounding bone and tissue structure will also be preserved.
A meticulous restoration of the entire mouth with crowns, bridges, and/or implants to restore its natural function. A patient’s lifestyle, age, face shape and aesthetic concerns are considered in creating strong, durable teeth and a new, natural smile.
An implant refers to a titanium post that is surgically place into the upper or lower jaw bone where a tooth is missing. It serves as a tooth root and anchorage for the crown, bridge or denture that is placed over it. Dental implants may initially be expensive, but it actually cost less over time than other tooth replacement options as they do not affect the adjacent teeth and, if good oral hygiene is practiced, can last a lifetime.
Braces are orthodontic appliances bonded to the teeth of the patient and are fitted with wires to position the teeth into their proper alignment. We offer different kinds of bracket options starting from the traditional metal brackets to the aesthetic ceramic bracket type and even self-ligating ones to ensure the comfort and satisfaction of our patients.
A root canal is usually performed when the tooth cannot be filled or restored in any other way because the decay has reached the nerve of the tooth or the tooth has become infected. The treatment fixes the tooth by removing its pulp chamber and filling it with a suitable filling material.
Ideal for people who have healthy, unrestored teeth and gums. Individuals with yellow tones to their teeth respond best to this treatment to achieve a glowing smile. A preliminary complete exam can ensure that whitening can be done with minimum sensitivity.
We use digital x-rays that emit 70%-80% less radiation than traditional methods. Instantaneous digital images clearly displayed on flat screen monitors allow for accurate diagnosis, and improve a patient’s ability to understand and follow their treatment. We also offer Orthodontic Diagnostic Packages that include Panoramic and Cephalometric Radiographs, Intra-oral and Extra-oral pictures, as well as the Orthodontic cast model for the diagnosis and treatment planning of orthodontic cases (braces).
For happy and healthy smiles.
