Let’s Fill Those Gaps in Your Smile!
The days of unsightly metal fillings are over: Dr. Jack uses a tooth-colored composite material to fill cavities. This material is better for your health than old-fashioned metal fillings and because it’s tooth-colored, you won’t have any unsightly dark spots in your teeth.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns and bridges are used to repair or replace damaged or missing teeth.
Crowns are custom crafted to fit over the remains of a damaged tooth. As this sits on top of the tooth, it is often called a “cap.”
Bridges are full replacements for a tooth that is missing entirely. It attaches to the healthy teeth on each side of the missing tooth with a crown.
Either way, these repairs will look and function just like the original tooth when it was healthy. In fact, you won’t even notice that it’s a replacement tooth. Weiss Dental uses metal-free crowns and bridges.
Partials & Dentures
Partials and dentures are used whenever a patient is missing several or more teeth. These are custom-fitted to address your specific needs and fill in the spaces where teeth are missing. If all of the teeth on the top or bottom are missing, Dr. Jack will likely consider full dentures or implants, depending on your individual case.
We offer both traditional and implant-supported dentures. Traditional dentures rest on the gums, while implant-supported dentures are secured to the jawbone by small metal posts, allowing for more natural chewing and speaking.
Implants are the strongest form of replacement teeth. First, a titanium post is inserted into the jawbone to replace the roots. After a couple of months, the bone will heal around the metal. This will effectively replace your missing root and keep the bone in your jaw stimulated. The replacement tooth is attached to this post.
At Weiss Dental, we service implant-retained dentures, but will need to refer the implant placement to an oral surgeon. Dr. Jack is certified to install mini-implants, which we do on site. These are newer and much smaller implants that can be placed in one office visit and provide an incredibly durable solution for missing teeth.
We all dread hearing the words “root canal.” However, this is usually based on a misunderstanding and exaggeration. A root canal is actually a relatively pain-free procedure that stops the pain of an infected tooth. In other words, the infection, not the root canal is the primary cause of the excruciating pain. Putting off a dental procedure is never a good idea. You’ll likely suffer more in the long run. If you’ve been told you need a root canal, don’t wait another day. Come on in and schedule an appointment with Dr. Jack.
If you have a tooth that absolutely has to come out, we can take care of the extraction right here at Weiss Dental. We do around 90% of our extractions in-house and only refer out cases that are severe, such as bony impacted wisdom teeth.
