Dental Implants and Tooth Restoration
For those missing one or more teeth as a result of injury, periodontal (gum) disease, or any other reason, a dental implant is the ideal solution for tooth restoration. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, placed directly into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.
Dental implants are often more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, but they offer superior benefits:
- Stronger than natural teeth
- Generally last 10-20 years
- Do not rely on neighboring teeth for support
Call to schedule a consultation and evaluation with Dr. Parr to find out if dental implants are the right option for you.
Invisalign treatment allows patients to reap all the benefits of traditional braces, plus one extra perk—Invisalign (as its name suggests) is virtually invisible.
Because of it’s clear design and snap-on custom fit, Invisalign may be better than traditional braces for patients who would prefer to have a non-visible treatment.
No matter the current trends, a bright smile is always in style. Proper oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings can do wonders to keep your teeth shiny and white, but sometimes a cosmetic treatment is necessary to achieve the smile you want.
Teeth whitening at Surf City Dental will whiten stained, discolored teeth, or simply enhance a dull smile. A fast, effective, safe, and relatively painless procedure, teeth whitening with our dentists and team is no fuss, but results are obvious.
Sapphire whitening is the perfect choice for patients who want to see immediate results. The entire process takes about an hour and can be performed right here in our office.
When you leave Surf City Dental after your Sapphire whitening treatment, you’ll leave with dramatically whiter teeth that will last for years.
Veneers are a dental procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside (visible area) of the tooth. Veneers are usually only applied to the part of the tooth that is visible when talking or smiling. The procedure can be direct or indirect.
The direct technique usually involves placing composite resin on the outside of the tooth using bonding. This method is often referred to as bonding.
The indirect technique typically requires two appointments because the veneers must first be fabricated at a dental laboratory.
The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable. Veneers are recommended for teeth that have large fillings or little tooth structure.
Made from patented Cerinate porcelain, Lumineers offer a painless way to a permanently whiter and perfectly aligned smile. Our dentists can apply these contact lens-thin “smile shapers” to teeth without any grinding or shaving, transforming teeth into a naturally beautiful smile in just 2-3 visits.
Made from patented Cerinate® porcelain, Lumineers deliver a custom-made smile that is clinically proven to last over 20 years. Unlike traditional veneers, Lumineers can even be placed over existing crown or bridgework without having to replace them.) This process offers a permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth that is completely reversible since your natural tooth structure remains intact.
