Tooth-Colored Fillings

October 8, 2014

If you have a cavity, you’re not the only one. According to one survey, over 85% of Americans have had at least one tooth affected by decay by the age of 40. Instead of using an unsightly silver amalgam filling to seal a cavity, Miami Dental Center gives you the option of choosing a durable composite resin filling that more closely matches the color of your teeth. These white fillings do more than enhance your appearance. Because they require smaller holes and less removal of the tooth than amalgam fillings, composite fillings are able to restore the tooth to most of its original shape, leaving it stronger and less susceptible to breaking. They’re even good for the environment: Since they don’t contain any mercury, there are no hazardous metal wastes to dispose of.

Veneers are commonly used to correct imperfections in your smile, such as unsightly gaps or chipped, crooked or discolored teeth. Ultra-thin, semi-transparent shells made of porcelain, our custom-made veneers are fitted to the front of your teeth, subtly altering their shape, color and alignment to create a more attractive appearance. The procedure itself is relatively simple and can be typically completed in just one or two appointments.

Thinner than a contact lens, LUMINEERS® porcelain veneers closely resemble your natural teeth. They are made of Cerinate® porcelain, the strongest, most durable Lucite-reinforced ceramic currently available. While studies have shown that LUMINEERS can last for 20 years or more, we can easily remove them if you are not entirely satisfied with how they look or fit. We start by taking a precision mold of your teeth, then help you choose the right shade for your new smile. Once your custom-designed LUMINEERS are ready, we’ll affix them to your teeth in a procedure so painless, you won’t even need an anesthetic.

It’s hard to light up a room with your smile if your teeth have become faded and yellow. If you’ve got a wedding, class reunion or big business presentation coming up, you might not have the time to wait for a take-home whitening kit to work its magic. Happily, Miami Dental Center offers incredibly convenient, remarkably effective alternatives: in-office chairside whitening treatments that remove years of discoloration and restore your smile to its former glory in as little as 60 minutes. Most Miami Dental Center locations offer either Zoom!®or REMBRANDT®SapphireTMchairside whitening. Both are non-invasive procedures that are simple, safe and painless. We start by applying a whitening gel to your teeth. Oxygen is then released from the gel through exposure to a specially designed light, stripping away unsightly stains. The result is a dramatically younger-looking smile that’s up to eight to ten shades lighter.

One of the newest ways to replace missing teeth is quickly becoming one of the most popular among patients and dentists alike. An innovative alternative to dentures and bridges, dental implants act as artificial roots that anchor your new teeth in place for greater support and stability. Because our implants are custom designed for a perfect fit, it’s almost like having your natural teeth back again. Our skilled dental professionals can surgically insert dental implants into your jawbone. Over time, the implants will bond with the existing bone, providing a firm foundation for your replacement teeth. Once your new teeth have been securely attached to your implants, you can bite into a juicy apple, sing in the shower or smile for the camera without any inconvenience or embarrassment.

In the next 60 minutes, someone will die of oral cancer. In fact, you might be surprised to learn that oral cancer is the sixth most common form of cancer in the United States. Over the years, it has claimed the lives of victims from Babe Ruth to Humphrey Bogart. While smoking, chewing tobacco and excessive consumption of alcohol can dramatically increase your odds of contracting this devastating disease; approximately 25% of people who contract oral cancer do not fall into any of the high-risk categories. OK, that’s the bad news. The good news is that oral cancer can be successfully treated if it’s detected in its earliest stages. That’s why we urge you to make an oral cancer screening part of your six-month check-up. Using new technologies such as ViziLite®Plus or VELscope®, we can locate and identify potentially malignant lesions before they grow large enough to be visible to the naked eye. Oral cancer screenings are quick, painless – and just might save your life. Miami Dental Service gives you plenty of ways to pay for your oral cancer screening. We also accept most major insurance plans.

At Miami Dental Center, we want your teeth to last as long as you do. Sometimes, however, a tooth may be so severely damaged that it simply cannot be saved. The tooth may need to be extracted so that we can replace it with a denture or partial. We’ll walk you through the procedure from start to finish, going over every last detail and answering all of your questions. Before removing the tooth, we’ll apply an anesthetic so you won’t feel any pain. Many of our practices can also administer local anesthesia, oral sedation or nitrous oxide sedation to help you relax. In some cases, we may recommend extracting wisdom teeth if they become impacted. Wisdom teeth typically come in during your late teens or early twenties. If they don’t emerge all the way, they can become impacted. Other teeth may block them, making it difficult for you to clean them properly. That, in turn, makes them more vulnerable to decay and disease. Impacted wisdom teeth can also irritate and inflame the gums, causing painful swelling.

For some decayed, damaged, chipped or cracked teeth, fillings alone won’t do the trick. A crown may be needed to restore the tooth to its original size and shape. Also commonly referred to as a cap, a crown shields and strengthens the tooth by encasing it with a protective coating placed over the tooth from the gum line on up. While materials such as gold or acrylic resin can be used to manufacture crowns, many of our patients prefer porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. Our porcelain crowns are custom made to resemble your original tooth as closely as possible. And because porcelain tends to reflect light the way your teeth do, it offers the most natural appearance. Miami Dental Service offers plenty of financing options to help you pay for that new crown. We also accept most major insurance plans.
