Soft drinks, coffee, tea, and tobacco can leave behind ugly stains on your teeth. To help you restore your bright white smile and to give you an added boost of confidence, we offer several options, such as the amazing in-office or take home whitening system by Opalescence.® Opalescence is a professional whitening treatment, so powerful and effective it is only dispensed by dentists. Teeth Whitening can be very successful while providing dramatic long-lasting results. Opalescence has received many awards in the dental world.
An excellent alternative to crowns, veneers can mask stains, hide chips, correct misalignment, and create uniformity. Veneers, which are made of thin, customized material designed to slide over the teeth, look very natural, are long lasting, and are relatively easy to apply. We use DURAthin no prep veneers. DURAthin Veneers are very thin porcelain veneers designed to adhere directly to the front of the teeth without removing any enamel! This means for some people, we can design the smile of their dreams without even drilling on their natural teeth. And there’s more good news. If you ever wanted to have the DURAthins removed, your natural smile would still be in tact!
Gone are the days when tooth ailments and cavities could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings. Today, modern, tooth-colored fillings made of durable resin or porcelain can be bonded to your teeth for a stronger, more natural and youthful looking smile. These revolutionary fillings are virtually undetectable and are easy to apply.
Inlays and Onlays
Porcelain inlays and onlays are an excellent conservative solution to cavity pain, reduced chewing strength, and general degeneration of the back teeth. Virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth, inlays and onlays discreetly restore teeth to an optimal state of health. They resemble natural teeth so closely that only you will know the truth.
Also called caps, crowns are natural-looking covers that fit snugly over teeth to conceal cracked, badly discolored, injured, or chipped teeth. Crowns minimize physical discomfort in and provide support to damaged teeth. Ultimately, crowns can improve the overall appearance of your smile while making your teeth more resistant to injury.
Dental Implants are the next best thing to having your natural tooth. Dental implants are completed in two phases. Typically the initial phase is placed in the gum by an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist. While Dr. Brian S. Deas does not surgically place implant posts, he is professionally trained in the art and science of placing the final restoration for Dental implants, phase two. When placing crowns, Dr. Deas takes into account tooth color and size as well as other features to ensure that the crown is as realistic looking as possible.
Would having a flawless smile increase your self-confidence? Are missing teeth preventing you from eating the foods you love? Well, implant bridges might be the perfect solution for you. These comfortable, effective bridges—which can either be removable or fixed—fit discreetly over Dental implants, allowing for maximum support.
Sometimes a bit more work is needed to give you the smile you want. If you are missing teeth, having trouble speaking or chewing, and noticing strain when biting, bridges may be the ideal procedure to help make your mouth healthy and functional again. Bridges, sometimes referred to as fixed partial dentures, literally bridge gaps between teeth by filling them with strong, natural-looking artificial teeth. These prostheses are long lasting, comfortable, and proven to make teeth strong.
A smile can be dulled by stained, chipped, cracked or misaligned teeth, but bonding can quickly and painlessly restore your smile's natural beauty. During the procedure, a thin coating of plastic or resin is painted over the damaged teeth and shaped, strengthening them and making them virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Implant-supported dentures attach a customized denture to an individual implant or a row of Dental implants, securing the denture in place. Working together, the denture and implant increase speaking and chewing ability. They are also very discreet (no one even has to know!), are long lasting, and are quite durable.
Partial or removable dentures fill gaps left by missing teeth. Partial dentures are held in place with metal clasps or precision devices (tooth-colored, discreet clasps) that are attached to natural teeth. Usually made of resin or metal, partial dentures allow more comfortable and effective chewing, improve speech, and prevent sagging of the cheeks and lips.
Dentures are an excellent option for people who have lost all their teeth. Precisely designed and molded to fit one's mouth, full dentures slide over the gums and are held in place with strong cheek and mouth muscles. They allow for comfortable chewing and keep the mouth and its surrounding facial features in proper alignment.
Twice-daily brushings and regular flossing are excellent for maintenance between office visits, but a healthy mouth requires routine general and preventative care to stay that way. Creekside Dental, Inc. offers comprehensive care that includes regular oral examinations, cleanings, fluoride, professional breath control, and periodontal (gum disease) treatments designed to help keep your teeth and gums strong and disease-free.
Kids want to be comfortable, entertained and respected. Adults want the best technology, the most informed doctors, and the highest quality care. Here, we understand that kids and adults have different needs and priorities, and we address them all. That's why our dentist has extensive experience working with children ages 3 and up—we can make the dental experience more enjoyable for everyone.
Gum Disease Care & Prevention
Unfortunately, periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile—it can cause loss of teeth and eventually, if left untreated, serious health problems. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth's soft tissues. Early warning signs of the disease include red, swollen, bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage or, if detected late, we can use one of many effective cosmetic and restorative dentistry procedures to achieve a healthy, beautiful condition.
Endodontics / Root Canals
Each tooth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp—which provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves—that extends down to the tooth's root. If the pulp becomes infected or injured, the tooth's nerves die and, often, without endodontic treatment, the tooth dies as well. Root canals are designed to save such damaged teeth. During the procedure (performed under anesthesia), a gap is drilled into the tooth's crown and pulp chamber, diseased pulp is reshaped or removed, and the tooth is permanently sealed with a gold, porcelain, or tooth-colored crown.
In only the most extreme and necessary cases—such as when a tooth's roots are severely damaged beyond repair—we may extract the tooth in preparation for a restorative dentistry procedure, such as dentures. Wisdom teeth may be too crowded in the jaw, causing problems - but we can help determine if they need to be removed.
Children's teeth—especially back teeth—are susceptible to decay and cavities despite regular brushing and flossing. To protect your children's teeth, consider sealants. These durable, clear products are painted over the teeth, adding strength and creating reinforcement. Sealants can significantly reduce decay!
Experts concluded long ago that the mineral fluoride is quite effective in protecting teeth enamel from decay. For that reason, it is added to tap water and other products. But children—whose teeth are vulnerable—need extra fluoride to keep their enamel extra strong. Fluoride treatments are an excellent solution. Fluoride treatments, administered in trays or brushed onto the teeth, are quick and painless and are given immediately following professional cleanings.
