If you want to make sure you have a seamless, flawless smile, our doctors are able to give that to their patients by offering tooth-colored fillings.

There are many reasons why people choose tooth-colored fillings. The most popular reason is that people get tooth-colored fillings is because they want to avoid the look of having a mouth full of metal.

The important aspect about fillings is the fact that it saves your tooth. When there is a cavity or a serious infection, we remove the decay and fill the space with your desired filling. If not treated in the proper amount of time, the problem can worsen, even possibly leading toward bone loss.

If you are not confident in your smile, it can completely alter the way you interact with people and yourself. There is no doubt our experience team is able to restore your confidence and bring your smile to the next level.

shutterstock_98139272Living in pain is never an easy thing, especially when it comes to your teeth. Tooth pain can be excruciating, and doing nothing about the pain will only make it worse. If you are suffering from an ongoing tooth ache, it is most likely because your tooth is infected. Left untreated, an infected tooth can wreak havoc on the rest of your smile, leaving you with a much more expensive and painful result down the road. Central Dental Associates understands the importance of making sure your smile is as health as it can be, which is why we offer root canal therapy to our patients!

A root canal needs to be performed when the tooth’s structure has been compromised. Perhaps due to a crack or a large cavity, the tooth’s inner structure has become infected with bacteria, causing you much pain and discomfort. Other things that can cause the need for root canal therapy are deep restorations and dental trauma.

We begin your root canal by focusing on the infected tooth and removing the harmful bacteria. The tooth’s pulp is removed, and then the tooth is filled. After that, a crown is usually placed at the top, protecting the tooth from further harm. At the end, you feel relieved and alleviated of pain!

If you are experiencing sensitivity to hot and cold foods and drinks, pain, swelling, throbbing, and a bad taste in your mouth, you may need a root canal. Make an appointment at our office, and we’ll be glad to help!

You will also have that opportunity to bring up any questions or concerns about the procedure, as we want you to be well-informed throughout the entire process.having a single tooth, or multiple teeth, missing, it can really affect the way you look at yourself and how you interact with others. Luckily, the doctors at Central Dental Associates understand the importance of having a full, beautiful smile, which is why they offer dental implants to their patients.

Getting dental implants involves imbedding a titanium screw into the jawbone. This implant will act as a new tooth root, and will prevent your other teeth from shifting to make up for the missing space. After the implant, the abutment is added, which is a support system for the implant and the crown. The crown is then placed on top, completing your new and beautiful smile!

One of the obvious benefits to dental implants is the fact that they have the potential give back the confidence you may have lost feeling insecure about your smile. You will no longer have the fears you used to, such as meeting new people, joining your friends in a laugh, or making a memorable first impression. Another benefit is the fact that dental implants are the fact it saves the rest of your mouth from further destruction. When there is a tooth missing, the other teeth will begin to shift to make up for the missing space. With dental implants it eliminates that from happening!
