Our team at Pro Dental Dallas specializes in full mouth restorations. So if you want a smile makeover, you’ve come to the right place. These are some of the treatments we offer.
Veneers are used to whiten teeth, close gaps, and lengthen your teeth. As you grow older, your teeth will be less visible when you smile. Veneers can actually make you look younger because the teeth are whitened and lengthened.
Do Dental Veneers Look Natural?
Yes, veneers look like your natural teeth. It can be used to close in gaps, whiten teeth, lengthen the tooth, and more. Each veneer is designed to go over your natural teeth and enhance them.
Is it Durable?
Even though the porcelain used to make a veneer is thin, it is actually a strong material. When it is attached to your natural tooth, it becomes stronger. The porcelain will not chip easily, however, if something would chip the natural tooth, it will likely have the same effect on the veneer.
Can It be Replaced?
Yes, dental veneers can be replaced when needed. Sometimes, it will need to be replaced with a crown if there is damage to the tooth. Dr. Roe will evaluate the condition of your teeth and prescribe a customized treatment plan.
Can You Eat With Dental Veneers?
Yes, you can eat with dental veneers. However, you do need to be careful about eating hard foods, tough meat, and sticky candies. Also, you should never use your teeth to open anything, especially if you have veneers.
For patients that have only a few teeth that need repairing, crowns are a good treatment option. The tooth is created to look like your natural teeth. Then it is attached to the teeth that need to be repaired. Dr. Roe makes sure that he shades the tooth to look natural.
Can Dental Crowns Move?
A properly placed dental crown will not move on you. However, if it doesn’t fit properly, there could be some movement. In this case, the crown may need to be replaced with one that fits better. Dr. Roe is a Prosthodontist and specializes in crowns. When he places one, he makes sure it is seated properly and doesn’t move or cause pain.
Can Dental Crowns Chip?
Just like a natural tooth, a dental crown can chip if you eat something hard. If it is a small chip, it can be fixed. However, if a large piece has come off the crown, it will need to be remade. If your crown has a sharp edge, you can cover it with wax or use a temporary dental glue to put it back together until you can get to the dentist.
Can It Be Lightened?
No, crowns can not be lightened or whitened. This is why we suggest that you have tooth whitening done prior to getting a crown. Then, we’ll match it to look like the color of the rest of your teeth. You’ll want to keep up with whitening of your natural teeth so there isn’t a variation between the two.
Will it Look Natural?
A dental crown looks very natural, because it is made to look like your teeth. The crown is milled based off of scans and impressions of your mouth. Then, it is fabricated to be the same color as the rest of your teeth.
What to Do If It Falls Out?
If your crown falls out, call Dr. Roe right away. We’ll get you in to see him on the first available appointment to put it back in. Save the crown and bring it in with you so he can attach it to your tooth.
An implant is a permanent tooth that is attached to a screw that is surgically implanted into your jaw bone. If you are missing a tooth or stand to lose one, this is a great option. It is the closest thing you can get to having natural teeth.
Are Dental Implants Safe?
Dental implants are a safe option for the right patients. Not all patients should get this procedure done. If there is a significant amount of bone loss or other factors, it might not be a viable option. However, for those with healthy bones and gums, this is a safe treatment plan.
What Are The Negative Effects of Dental Implants?
All surgery comes with risks, including dental implant surgery. Nerve damage can happen during the procedure, which is why such care is taken when planning out the surgery. On occasion, the body can reject an implant, causing it to fail. In which case, a new implant may need to be placed.
How Long Does it Last?
Dental implants are designed to replace your natural teeth and be a permanent solution. If the implant doesn’t fail after the first three months, it should be a permanent fixture. However, the crown the screws onto the implant may need to be replaced if it chips, cracks or breaks at some point in your life.
