Porcelain Crowns

Broken, chipped or cracked teeth can often cause pain and insecurity, but when the crown, or top of the tooth, is damaged but has a solid foundation underneath—we can repair it with a crown replacement.  A crown, or cap, as it is often called, can bring a compromised tooth back to full function. Utilizing esthetic and modern porcelain materials, you’ll have difficulty finding where the crown ends and the natural tooth starts.

Porcelain Bridges

Dental bridges have traditionally been a top choice to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. Now that dental implants are more widespread, patients have more options than ever to bridge gaps in their smiles. Resilient, natural-looking porcelains engineered into a bridge can eliminate spaces of every size. A bridge will consist of 3 or more natural-looking customized porcelain teeth, which are designed to look like a natural tooth and “bridge” the space in your bite—preventing the teeth from shifting, which can cause more damage, and become painful as well as improving your natural chewing ability.

Modern technology has made this procedure more common. Dr. Mellert and his expertly trained team use the latest technology to collect all the data necessary to help plan your case from start to finish. Digital x-rays, 3-D mapping, models, and photographs prove valuable. Dr. Mellert combines all of the components of your case, expertly placing the implant in the same bone that once supported teeth. Once restored, you will enjoy the strength and function of a natural tooth. Modern porcelains produce a life-like result; you may forget these restored implants are not your natural teeth.

Teeth Whitening

Nothing boosts your confidence like a bright smile! Over time, coffee, tea, red wine, other colored food and beverages, and even some medications, can cause yellowish stains on your teeth or even dull the natural brightness of your teeth. Professional whitening systems provide the ultimate in whitening results, quickly removing years of discoloration and leaving gleaming results. Some whitening services can even be done over your lunch break, so ask anyone on our team about how to have the brightest smile you can!

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are customized porcelain shells that fit over the base of your original tooth! Custom-crafted to each tooth, Veneers provide an artist’s touch to your smile. Regardless of if you’re trying to cover permanent staining, damage to the tooth, or have a different vision for your smile, chances are Veneers offer an ideal solution. When today’s modern materials meet Dr. Mellert’s passion for cosmetic excellence, you’ll be amazed at the vision you see smiling back at you in the mirror.

Partial Dentures

Whether you’ve lost one tooth or many, chewing and smiling can become more difficult because of the open spaces in your smile. Partial dentures are an economical solution to replace missing teeth, improve chewing ability, and restore the confidence you need to smile. Additionally, a partial denture will also help keep your natural teeth from shifting, lowering the risk of losing those teeth in the future. Some treatment plans can pair implants and partial dentures to give you a more stable chewing surface and improve your overall quality of life. See the implant-retained denture section below for more information, or call to schedule your consultation today!

Immediate Dentures

You should consider getting immediate dentures if your gums need time to heal after extractions are done. Depending on your gum health, this takes a few weeks to a few months before your permanent denture can be fitted and delivered. If you don’t want to wait or feel self-conscious about missing teeth during this time, immediate dentures are a great solution. Immediate dentures allow Dr. Mellert to treat and fit you with a new set of teeth that same day! These dentures are strong, durable, and look like a complete set of natural teeth!

Implant-Retained Dentures

While dentures have a long history of successful use, modern technology allows you more options to enhance the way dentures fit and enables you to choose the way you want to look. In most cases, dentures can be secured more firmly to your jaw with the use of dental implants. In addition to having excellent retention and a more natural look, implant-supported dentures tend to last longer and feel more secure. We know that your smile is as unique as you are. Dr. Mellert has the experience to help you select the teeth that will look the most natural. This also gives you the option to customize the way you look, whether you want a “new” smile or want to recreate the one you’ve had.
