If your teeth are still healthy but could use a little help to cover yellowing or other discoloration, UDA has you covered with our teeth whitening or veneers. If you need a more aggressive approach, our highly successful root canal therapy may be for you.
Whether it’s one tooth or all 32, keeping your teeth bright and shining is important.
Teeth bleaching products, which contain peroxides, actually change your natural tooth color anywhere from five to twelve shades brighter and last up to one year before a touch up is needed.
Chair-side bleaching, involves applying either a protective gel to your gums or a rubber shield to protect the soft tissues in the mouth. A bleaching agent is then applied to the teeth, and a special light is used to enhance the chemical action
If you’re interested in brightening your smile, have your teeth evaluated by us. Not everyone is a good candidate for bleaching. In some cases of serious discoloration and pitted teeth, for example, veneers may be more appropriate.
Moreover, crowns, bridges, and fillings do not bleach, so it may be necessary to replace the dental work to make it blend with the new color of your bleached teeth.
In just one to three dental visits, one of two different types of veneers can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine, and tobacco use. These special thin laminates can also be used to correct discolored, worn-down, cracked, gapped, and chipped teeth
Root canal therapy is a remarkable treatment with a very high rate of success, and involves removing the diseased tissue, halting the spread of infection and restoring the healthy portion of the tooth.
Root canals are tiny passageways that branch off from beneath the top of the tooth, coursing their way downward, until they reach the tip of the root. All teeth have between one and four root canals.
Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues.
When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems.
A diseased inner tooth brings a host of problems; pain and sensitivity are some of the first indications of a problem; but inside, a spreading infection can cause small pockets of pus to develop, leading to an abscess.
Root canal therapy usually entails one to three visits.
Most patients who have root canal experience little or no discomfort or pain, and enjoy a restored tooth that can last almost as long as its healthy original.
