Porcelain fixed bridges are permanent dental appliances used to replace missing teeth. They are called dental bridges because they literally bridge the gap created by a missing tooth. A dental bridge is most useful in replacing one or more missing teeth all in a row. There are many types of dental bridges available, depending on which teeth you are missing. Dr. VanDenburgh, our skilled dentist, will be able to determine if a dental bridge is the best way to restore your smile and what type is best for you.
A typical dental bridge in Napa, CA utilizes a replacement tooth called a pontic that is anchored by two dental crowns.
We use CEREC® same-day restoration technology to produce your dental restoration in just one office visit. Our material of choice is porcelain due to its beauty and strength. To permanently attach your dental bridge, we will first prepare the teeth that will hold the crowns by gently reshaping the surface of the tooth to accommodate the size of the crown. The pontic is anchored in place by these dental crowns. Once Dr. VanDenburgh has ensured the porcelain fixed bridge is exact in fit, he will cement it into place. We invite you to learn more about porcelain fixed bridges and how they can restore your smile by calling our office today.
When a tooth has experienced decay or damage, but a significant portion of the original tooth structure still remains, we may suggest porcelains inlays and onlays to conservatively treat the damage and maintain a natural aesthetic. Inlays and onlays are also called indirect fillings and can be made from multiple types of materials. At VanDenburgh Dental, we use porcelain inlays and onlays to provide superior strength and beauty. Inlays and onlays are both used to treat damage, but there are slight differences. An inlay is used when the damage does not extend to the cusp of the tooth, while an onlay is suggested to repair tooth damage that includes the cusps of the tooth. The cusp of a tooth is the very top, projected part of the tooth’s surface. Our expert dentist, Dr. VanDenburgh, will help you determine if an inlay or an onlay will best suit your specific dental needs.
We provide custom-made porcelain inlays and onlays in Napa, CA. They are created to fit your natural bite perfectly, improving both the function and health of your smile. If you would like to learn more about an inlay or an onlay, we invite you to call our office and schedule a consultation with Dr. VanDenburgh today.
If you have a cosmetic dental flaw, porcelain veneers are a superior solution. Very thin shells with a natural look and feel, veneers are bonded to the front of teeth to help create a more perfect smile. Dental veneers are typically created from porcelain; Dr. VanDenburgh, our excellent dentist, is able to either match the shade of porcelain to your natural tooth color or pick a lighter shade for an overall whitening effect. We will work together with you to determine what will work best based upon your individual needs and desires. Our goal is to help you achieve a beautiful smile that you will be proud to share. Dental veneers in Napa, CA may be suggested to repair:
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Chipped or cracked teeth
- Broken teeth
- Misshapen teeth
- Overcrowded or misaligned teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Teeth damaged from dental trauma
Getting veneers at VanDenburgh Dental is easier than ever thanks to our CEREC® same-day restoration technology. In just one office visit, your veneers can be designed, created, and applied. To place a veneer, our team will gently remove a small layer of enamel to accommodate the size of the veneer. Once we ensure it fits and looks properly, the veneer will be permanently cemented into place. For more information, we invite you to call our dental office and schedule a cosmetic consultation today.
Over the course of your life, the enamel of your teeth can become discolored or stained. Age alone causes yellowing, and certain lifestyle habits only make things worse. Smoking, tobacco use, wine, coffee, sugary foods, and dark-colored drinks cause stains, while old metal dental restorations can darken your smile as well. To help reverse this process, our skilled dental team at VanDenburgh Dental provides teeth whitening to restore your beautiful smile. While there are many types of teeth whitening methods, all are similar in their basic approach. Generally, through in-office or at-home systems, a gentle hydrogen peroxide gel is applied to the surface of your teeth. The gel absorbs into the discolored enamel of your tooth to bleach deep-rooted stains and discoloration.
Our teeth whitening method of choice is teeth whitening trays. Our talented dentist, Dr. VanDenburgh, will make custom plastic trays from molds of your teeth to hold the whitening gel. Through this method, you will be able to whiten your smile at your own convenience at home. Teeth whitening is safe, easy to do, and effective in boosting self-confidence. For more information about professional teeth whitening in Napa, CA, we encourage you to call or visit our dental office to schedule a consultation today. We look forward to helping you achieve a more beautiful smile!
