Periodontal Probe is a dental procedure that is utilized to examine the health of a patient’s gums and teeth. Healthcare facilities, oral surgeons, dental professionals, dental hygienists, and others can utilize this tool in order to determine gum illness along with other issues such as cavities or infections. Periodontal probe measurements are usually finished with an explorer-type device rather than a ruler since it will fit more properly versus the surface area of the tooth. A gum measurement consists of two numbers: one on either side of a slanted line that divides them both equally (dot). The first number indicates millimeters while the 2nd steps centimeters from where you determine at the base of your cheek beside your upper tooth all around your mouth up until its tip. A periodontal probe is a dental instrument that measures the health of a patient’s gums and teeth.

  • Aligners are removable for eating, drinking, brushing, flossing, and special occasions
  • Each tray is worn for two weeks, and then you move to the next aligner in the series
  • Most patients can achieve their goals in 9-15 months
  • Clear aligners are virtually unnoticeable for more discreet treatment


Every treatment plan is fully customized by our dentists to best suit your unique needs and desired outcome. We utilize 3-D technology so that you can see a preview of the predicted result before beginning.

While Invisalign® can address a wide range of issues, this approach is not appropriate for all patients. We can help guide you toward the method that gives you the optimal result.

Investing in a Straighter Smile

One of the many benefits of Invisalign® teeth-straightening is that it often costs about the same as traditional metal braces, although with this system you can enjoy more discreet and comfortable treatment. If you’re considering Invisalign®, our dentists will develop a customized program that optimizes your results during your initial consultation. During this evaluation and planning stage, they will review the cost of treatment based on your needs and goals. Since the plan is designed individually, the price will vary from person to person. Some of the factors that go into determining the final cost include the complexity of your case, length of time required to achieve the discussed outcome, and the number of aligners that will need to be used. The average Invisalign® user can expect to spend between $1,800 and $6,500, depending on their unique characteristics. The best way to receive an accurate quote is to schedule an appointment with our dentists, where we will provide a detailed account of what to expect.

Both traditional metal braces and Invisalign® have similar goals: to straighten teeth. The right technique for your needs can vary depending on the complexity of your treatment plan as well as personal preferences. Many patients prefer Invisalign®, as it can provide a more comfortable experience. Invisalign® has no metal or wires to dig into the soft tissues of the mouth, and the trays can be removed for pictures or special events, if desired. The trays are also low maintenance and virtually invisible, while braces require considerable upkeep and can be quite noticeable, even if clear or white ceramic brackets are used. As with all procedures, we will discuss your options during your consultation so you can make the best decision for you.

Invisalign® for all Ages

Invisalign® can be a great choice for teenagers as well as adults. Invisalign® Teen is specially designed for the unique dental needs and goals of adolescents. Just like original Invisalign®, Invisalign® Teen uses a series of clear aligner trays to shift the teeth over a period of time. The trays are clear, removable, and easy to care for. If you think your teen could benefit from this teeth-straightening method, talk to us today. We believe everyone should have access to a smile they feel confident showing off. If you’re ready for Invisalign® and are interested in dental financing options, we can help you find the right plan for your needs, lifestyle, and budget. Talk to us today for more information.

BENEFITS OF Invisalign
(CLEAR ALIGNERS)

  • You can smile with ease because no one will be able to tell you’re wearing aligners.
  • The smooth plastic is much more comfortable compared to rough brackets and poking wires.
  • Cleaning them takes less than a minute every day.
  • You can take them out and eat whatever you like.
  • You won’t have to attend as many progress appointments compared to metal braces, saving you time.
  • In most cases, Invisalign patients are able to complete treatment in just 12-18 months as opposed to 1-3 years with braces.

Dental Crowns Appointment

Dental Crown

A dental crown is usually made of porcelain or metal and covers the tooth surface from biting edge to chewing edge. It can be made to match the color of your natural teeth or it may be left in its original tooth color. A dental crown is usually held in place by cementing it into a prepared space on the chewing surface of the underlying tooth, known as an abutment channel, which has been shaped and sized for this purpose. It’s important not to chew while wearing a temporary crown because doing so could chip or break off parts of the fragile material. A permanent gold-crowned restoration should last ten years with proper care but will need replacement sooner if you have bite problems that cause wear on these areas. If you are experiencing anything other than gentle biting pressure when eating hard foods like nuts and ice cubes, then we recommend you see a dentist soon to find out what the cause of your problem is.

PFM Restorations – Porcelain Fused To Metal Dental Crown restoration is a dental restoration that has been made using porcelain fused to metal. PFM Restorations are usually used to replace a tooth’s root structure which has been lost due to decay, injury or age.

PFM in dentisty applies when the tooth is prepared with either a metal frame cast in place or by removing some of the teeth so that it can be replaced with an alternative material such as porcelain fused to metal dental crowns (PFM). This technique provides strength, esthetics and durability because it does not wear or fracture like other types of restorations such as PFM Restorations –

A PFM Restoration is a dental restoration that has been made with porcelain fused to metal. The tooth’s surface may be prepared before this type of restoration begins; however if no preparation was necessary then a layer called bonding agent will need to adhere the two materials together

A PFM Restorations – Porcelain Fused To Metal Dental Crown will prevent sensitivity, provide strength and durability, allow for easier cleaning and also reduce secondary caries.

Amalgam Crown is a dental restoration that has been made using amalgam. The tooth with a crown structure is first prepared and then the crown material (porcelain) is applied according to specifications of the dentist. This technique provides strength, esthetics and durability because it does not wear or fracture like other types of restorations such as PFM Restorations – Porcelain Fused To Metal Dental Crown which are prone to decay over time due to their softness.

It can also be used for large fillings in a patient’s mouth that need more support than a porcelain filling would provide. The amalgam metal content fills space between gum tissue and teeth when an anterior restoration needs additional bulk for stability. It has been shown that using this type of dental work prevents secondary caries and the need for extractions.

PFM Bridge Dental Crown – Porcelain fused to metal bridge is a dental procedure that restores an individual tooth by using two different types of metals. One part, the crossbar, has porcelain fused to it and attaches directly onto one or more teeth on either side of the missing tooth space. The other part consists of a false crown which sits over the top surface where gold alloy can be applied for esthetic purposes. It should also be noted that there are many variations in bridges depending on what type was utilized and how much work was required during placement.

Some common examples would include minimal invasive surgery, partial denture replacement and full mouth rehabilitation.

The restoration process begins with making impressions of your teeth so they will fit perfectly. After that, for the PFM Bridge, the dentist will use a hardening process to make the porcelain as strong as possible. This is followed by using special instruments to create spaces for the bridge and attaching it onto teeth on either side of missing tooth space.

After fitting, PFM Bridges are attached with dental cement that must be strengthened over time before use. Once this has been done, they can withstand normal chewing forces and last indefinitely without need for repair or replacement other than routine checkups at your trusted dentists office!

The second type of restoration would involve inserting posts into one or more adjacent natural teeth which serve to support crowns fabricated from gold alloy in order to provide esthetic enhancement while also ensuring long-term strength. The two types of metals used offer different levels of durability.

Do crowns stain?

It is important to remember that the metal used in crowns does not affect their ability to stain. What determines whether or not a crown will be stained, besides where and when it is eaten?

The main factor influencing tooth corrosion of any kind (crowns being just one example) is acidity levels in your mouth. These are at highest level on teeth with fillings or cavities which have been left untreated for an extended period of time – these areas become vulnerable as they corrode from within and can make other surfaces such as porcelain look discolored, even though the material itself may still appear pristine!

Potential Solutions:

If you suspect that something has gone wrong with your restoration treatment then visit your dentist.

Zirconia Monolithic is a dental term used to describe a single, solid piece of porcelain that has been fused onto the metal substructure.

The Porcelain Fused To Metal Dental Crowns are designed as a permanent restoration for patients with tooth decay and dental injuries.

This type of crown is made up of two parts: an inner core material such as gold or other metals wrapped in porcelain which provides strength; and the outer layer-porcelain -which offers color contrast, esthetics and durability while also protecting against teeth grinding!

The PFM Restorations are designed to be fused with metal substructures, which provide a more natural look than traditional dental crowns made of gold or other materials. The Porcelain Fused To Metal Dental Crowns can also be manufactured from Porcelain Placed On A Gold Base (gold alloy) or Zirconia Placed Onto A Gold Base (ceramic).

PFM Dental Crown

PFM teeth with PFM Dental Crowns are used by the dentist to restore teeth that are fractured, broken or severely weakened. The Porcelain fused to metal dental crown is a type of dental restoration which bridges the gap between restoring natural tooth structure and maintaining esthetics in patients’ smiles. In addition, it can provide durability against back molars grinding on each other; as well as protection from further injury.

PFM Restorations

PFM restorations are used when tooth decay has started to weaken the enamel on your teeth but does not reach deep enough into the dentin layer that it affects their integrity. In this case, if you need any type of restoration done like an extraction, filling, root canal treatment, tooth replacement, or even a dental crown for cosmetic purposes.

A PFM restorations is typically used when decay has reached the outermost surfaces of your teeth and there’s no risk of it reaching deeper into the dentin layer where it could affect their integrity. If you’re in need of any type of restoration like an extraction, filling, root canal treatment, tooth replacement, or just a dental crown then this may be right for you.

The PFM Restorations are designed to have contrast between metal substructures on top that provide durability and esthetics while protecting against teeth grinding! The Porcelain Fused To Metal Dental Crowns can also be manufactured from Porcelain Placed On A Gold Base.

Porcelain Fused to Zirconia

Porcelain fused to zirconia is a dental restoration material manufactured by the DENTSPLY Company. Zirconia anterior crowns are with porcelain fused to zirconia is a type of dental crown that provides strength and durability while being esthetically pleasing

PORCELAIN FUSED TO ZIRCONIA RESTORATIONS ARE USUALLY MORE COST EFFECTIVE THAN PFM RESTORATION

PFM Crown

A PFM Crown is usually used when the decay has reached the outermost surfaces of your teeth and there’s no risk of it reaching deeper into the dentin layer where it could affect their integrity. If you’re in need of any type of restoration like an extraction, filling, root canal treatment, tooth replacement or just a dental crown then this may be right for you.

A sensitive crown is treated with a special enamel coating that is less likely to become chipped or broken, and the pressure of biting will be reduced.

A posterior crown is usually fitted at the back of your mouth and is used to cover a damaged tooth.

PFM Dental Crowns are also called full coverage crowns or complete coverage dental crowns because they completely encircle the entire structure of an individual tooth, which often includes both chewing surfaces and adjacent teeth.

The PFM Crowns are designed to have contrast between metal substructures on top that provide durability and esthetics while protecting against teeth grinding! The Porcelain Fused To Metal Dental Crown can also be manufactured from Porcelain Placed On A Gold Base for a full ceramic crown.

Premolar Crown

A premolar Crown is used to cover the entire premolar region when you need an extra tooth for chewing.

The PFM Restorations can also be manufactured from Porcelain Placed On A Gold Base. The Premolars are typically wired and screwed into place, which can take a little time because of their size but it is worth waiting for!

A crown will protect your teeth against grinding forces that could damage them in the future and will often last many decades before needing replacement or repair.

Premolar Crowns are usually made out of metal substructures with porcelaine covered on top as this gives great contrast between colors while still protecting the natural surfaces underneath from all types of food particles, bacteria, plaque build-ups, etc.

Celtra Duo Crown

Celtra Duo Crowns are a great alternative to the PFM Restorations and can be fabricated in just one appointment. The tooth is numbed by applying local anesthetic, then filed down until it has been reduced to dust particles. Next, we will create a “cap” that will cover the top of your tooth which starts as metal but ends up being coated with porcelain fused on using heat and pressure.

The first step for making these crowns is reducing the size of your teeth so they are thinner than they were before (providing more room for our cap). A temporary filling may also need to be applied if needed – this could mean restoring any broken teeth or fixing gaps between fillings! We then mold around our wax model for the all ceramic crown with a special putty-like material called porcelain powder and fire it in an oven.

Next, we will create a “cap” that will cover the top of your tooth which starts as metal but ends up being coated with porcelain fused on using heat and pressure. The PFM Restorations are usually made to match the color of your teeth so they look like natural parts of them – best part is you can even choose from different shades! When our caps have fully cooled down after firing, we then paint them one last time with enamel before fitting them onto your teeth for inspection.

This final process lasts about five minutes or less (once everything has had enough time to dry) and only requires a small bit of drilling to attach the metal post that will support your new PFM Restorations.

Wisdom Tooth Crowning

Wisdom Tooth Crowning is when the dentist has to put a crown in place of the tooth because it has broken down or worn away so much that there is no more root left. The crown that fits on the wisdom teeth is usually thicker than the teeth in front of it so that they don’t break.

When we are done, your mouth will be happier and healthier with a PFM Restorations!

Lava Crown

A dental lava crown is a type of restoration used on the front teeth to replace tooth tissue that has been lost. The dentist will take an impression and send it off for processing in order to create your new Lava Crown.

Lava Dental Crowns are made from resin-based compounds with porcelain fused onto metal, so they’re stronger than traditional silver fillings. They also come pre-shaped, which helps avoid damage when biting down or chewing food.

The most common symptoms for people who need this kind of treatment are sensitivity to hot or cold foods/beverages; chipped or cracked teeth (i.e., due to trauma); recurrent gum infections; receding gums ; loose dentures; or teeth that are too short.

Lava Crowns can be used to restore the front or back of a tooth, and they typically last for many years before requiring replacement.

Examples:

– If your tooth is chipped from trauma (i.e., an accident), you may need a Lava crown on one of the incisors in order to prevent further damage to other teeth as well as provide aesthetics;

– PFM Restoration – Porcelain Fused To Metal Dental Crowns have been shown to improve facial contour when replacing missing bony tissue near cheekbones, chin, lips and jaws because these restorations do not require additional bone grafting.
