Dental Bridges
A fixed dental bridge is a restoration that is done by a dentist to replace a missing tooth or missing teeth.

It is a fitted crown attached to a tooth, and replaces a missing tooth, or teeth attaching to another tooth on the other end of this bridge. It can be used either between one’s natural teeth or in between dental implants. There are always certain guidelines to take into consideration before deciding to replace a missing tooth with a fixed dental bridge. It can replace one, two or multiple teeth. And once it is placed and cemented, the patient cannot remove it.

Dental Cleaning
Dental cleaning is a procedure in which plaque and most foreign material is removed from a patient’s teeth.

It is important, depending on the case, to have a professional cleaning by a dental hygienist or a dentist. Usually, dental cleaning will take no more than 30 minutes and it will help eliminate plaque and food particles that contribute to the formation of various diseases that can cause gingivitis, cavities and formation of infections.

Composite Fillings

This procedure is usually done when the patients has cavities that can be treated before the need of a root canal or an extraction.

This procedure is done with local anesthesia and depending on the severity and the complexity of the cavity can be taken care in one appointment and take 20 to 50 minutes per tooth. Most of the time, a dental dam is placed before the procedure to ensure that no saliva or blood contaminates the teeth being treated.
Composite fillings are available in different shades. The treating dentist will make sure that they are the same shade of the tooth or teeth being treated.

Dental Crowns - Porcelain
We offer the most common type of porcelain crowns, witch are porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns, where the metal part is covered by the porcelain.

Porcelain crowns have come a long way. The same way as dental fillings have. This type of crowns have been available for decades, and are still the most common type of crowns around the world.

Dental Crowns - Zirconia
Zirconia (Zirconium) crowns are now one of the most popular type of crowns when talking about a complete mouth makeover.

The main reason is that they contain no metal, and they are as strong as a porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns. Their use is aimed at back teeth, but their application is for both back and front teeth. Zirconium oxide has been used for artificial hip or knee joints for many years. In this field it has proven its extreme durability with the highest biological tolerance. Dental crowns

Gum Contouring
This procedure which can also be considered a cosmetic procedure, due to the fact that reshapes all tissue that surrounds every tooth, is done by our periodontist specialist.

Upon an initial consultation, our periodontist Dr. Bernardo Bogarin, will sit down with you and explain the procedure and what results to expect at the end of the treatment.

Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease can be averted, sometimes with a simple dental cleaning. On other cases, it might require deep cleaning.

Bacteria can lodge under the gums and stay there until pain and/or physical changes to the gums and teeth occur. In some cases, root planing may be required, and possibly more than one visit might be needed. And as in all cases, pain does not have to be part of this type of dental treatment.

Full Mouth Reconstruction
Most of the time a patient might be missing one or more teeth, he or she might need root canal treatments, dental implants, gum disease treatment/contouring, cavities and/or other dental problems.

This procedure usually requires multiple disciplinary specialist intervention. A dental plan is required that can be done in a sequential way with the goal of regaining the patients full mouth functions. When a patient has multiple dental problems, it is important to have a complete mouth diagnostics to make sure that every treatment is properly addressed and taken care of.

Implant Supported Dentures (All on 4)

All on 4 Dental implants are a great way to enjoy food again, whether you have upper or lower dentures, or both, they are a great way to support them and give you a way to enjoy your food at it should.

Gastrointestinal problems is another factor why dental implants are important when it comes to enjoying food. The way we chew food and the quality of the portions are important to maintain a healthy overall gastrointestinal system; when food is correctly chewed, it provides the initial part of the digestive system. When we chew our food correctly we facilitate the digestive process and our body does not suffer in the long run to compensate for this part. Having fixed teeth, this being porcelain or acrylic (dentures), attached to dental implants makes a world of a difference.

Intraoral Camera
The intraoral camera magnifies images, helping us to spot potential problems like cracked fillings, fractures, and early tooth decay.

Imagine a pen-like device that can take close-up pictures of your teeth and gums. You can see what we see in your mouth, making it even easier to understand each dental condition and treatment options. With early diagnosis, we can treat these potential problems before they become big problems.

Invisalign
We are proud to offer, like all of their treatment options, this brand of corrective appliances. Although some patients might not be the perfect candidates for this type of braces, they are available to any of our patients.
Teeth Whitening
It is a procedure that lightens the color of your teeth. The whole procedure takes about 1 hour and it can greatly enhance your appearance.

The process consists of placing a gel like material directly onto your teeth, usually from the first premolar on one side of the mouth to the first premolar on the other side of the mouth. We start with a dental cleaning, reassuring that there is no presence of plaque or any foreign substance that could hamper a great result. After the dental cleaning, which will also help removing some stains, the patient will be laying down comfortably in the dental chair for about 40 minutes while the whitening material whitens every tooth. After this non-invasive procedure, the patient can go about their day.
