Smile with Confidence

Skylyn Dental Associates has extensive experience in cosmetic dentistry techniques and has helped hundreds of patients achieve the smile they previously only dreamed about. We all know that having a beautiful, healthy, bright smile improves our appearance and self esteem.

CROWNS

Dental crowns can fix a variety of dental problems including teeth that are weak, severely discolored, or cracked. Crowns are considered to be more suitable when there is significant structural damage because of decay, injury, or wear.

A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are typically bonded to the tooth using dental cement. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.

BRIDGES

If you're missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge will close the gap. A dental bridge is constructed of two dental crowns on either side of the gap, with a new tooth in the middle. By adjoin adjacent teeth and replacing the missing tooth, you can restore your smile and give a boost to your confidence.

VENEERS

Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of the teeth. They are an ideal choice for improving your smile and have become increasingly popular.

Placing custom veneers requires a high degree of technical skill as well as attention to cosmetic detail. Our dentist's places veneers routinely, and design each case individually to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient's smile.

Veneers are routinely used to fix:

  • Teeth that are discolored –either because of root canal (treatment; stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or other causes; or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
  • Teeth that are worn down
  • Teeth that are chipped or broken
  • Teeth that are misaligned, uneven, or irregularly shaped (for example, have craters or bulges in them)
  • Teeth with gaps between them (to close the space between these teeth)
 

What's the Procedure for Getting a Dental Veneer?

  • Diagnosis and treatment planning. Our dentist will examine your teeth to make sure dental veneers are appropriate for you and discuss what the procedure will involve. The Dentist may take X-rays and possibly make impressions of your mouth and teeth.
  • Preparation. To prepare a tooth for a veneer, our dentist will remove about 1/2 millimeter of enamel from the tooth surface. Before trimming off the enamel, you and our dentist will decide the need for a local anesthetic to numb the area. Next, our dentist will make a model or impression of your tooth. This model is sent to our dental laboratory, which in turn constructs your veneer.
  • Bonding. Before the dental veneer is permanently cemented to your tooth, our dentist will temporarily place it on your tooth to examine its fit and color. Our dentist will repeatedly remove and trim the veneer as needed to achieve the proper fit; the veneer color can be adjusted with the shade of cement to be used. Next, to prepare your tooth to receive the veneer, your tooth will be cleaned, polished, and etched—which roughens the tooth to allow for a strong bonding process. Cement is applied to the veneer and the veneer is then placed on your tooth. Once properly position on the tooth, our dentist will apply a special light beam to the dental veneer, which activates chemicals in the cement, causing it to harden or cure very quickly. The final steps involve removing any excess cement, evaluating your bite and making any final adjustments in the veneer as necessary.
  • WHITENING

    Whitening, or "tooth bleaching", is the most common cosmetic dental procedure. In-office bleaching provides the quickest way to whiten teeth. With in-office bleaching, the whitening product is applied directly to the teeth. These products can be used in combination with heat, a special light, and/or a laser. Results are seen in only one, 30- to 60-minute treatment. But to achieve dramatic results, several appointments are usually needed. However, with in-office bleaching, dramatic results can be seen after the first treatment.

    BONDING

    Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied and hardened with a special light, which ultimately "bonds" the material to the tooth to restore or improve person's smile.

    Dental bonding is an option that can be considered:

    • To repair decayed teeth
    • To repair chipped or cracked teeth
    • To improve the appearance of discolored teeth
    • To close spaces between teeth
    • To make teeth look longer
    • To change the shape of teeth
    • To protect a portion of the tooth's root that has been exposed when gums recede
