Have cavities or dental trauma given you a smile you’re less than proud to show off? Do you even have one or more teeth that are a constant source of pain? If so, then the best place for you to be is Island City Dental. Led by experienced general dentist Dr. Smith and certified prosthodontist Dr. Yap, our team is uniquely qualified to repair any kind of dental damage. Whether your smile needs a little or a lot of help, we’ll seemingly turn back the clock using the latest technology and techniques.
When it comes to repairing badly damaged teeth, dental crowns are literally the king. Designed to look, feel, and function just like a real tooth, these restorations seamlessly fit over compromised teeth to bring back their normal appearance and full function at the same time. They can even be used to support prosthetic teeth that literally bridge gaps left by one or more missing teeth in the smile. And, they are always custom-made for each patient to guarantee the perfect fit.
If you come to see us with a small cavity, we won’t fix it by placing an unnatural-looking gray filling into your smile. Instead, we’ll use a color-matched composite resin to quickly and conservatively replace any decayed enamel. Tooth-colored fillings are designed to practically disappear within the mouth, and because they are metal-free, they don’t make a patient more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. They also enable our team to preserve more of a tooth while repairing it, creating something that both looks great and can be trusted to last.
If you are missing several teeth, know that our team is ready to create a prosthetic just for you. Combining our artistic touch with some of the most advanced materials available today, we can provide you with a denture that looks great, fits comfortably, and will stand the test of time. Partial dentures are able to fit comfortably in between any remaining teeth, while a full denture can instantly replace an entire row. No matter what you need, it will be custom-made for your unique smile.
Your teeth are actually composed of three unique layers: the enamel on the outside, followed by a substance called dentin, and at the center lies a bit of nerve tissue called the dental pulp. Sometimes, whether due to a cavity or crack in the enamel, bacteria can reach and infect this pulp, leading to a very, very bad toothache. If you’re dealing with this kind of dental pain, our team can provide quick relief and save the tooth from extraction with root canal therapy.
If you’re ever in need of any kind of surgical dental procedure, you won’t need to visit a specialist, as you can get everything you need right here at Island City Dental. We can provide both simple and surgical tooth extractions, crown lengthening, and even dental implant placement all on site. Our team has undergone extensive training in order to provide an array of services scarcely seen at a single practice, ensuring you’re always able to work with the dentist and team that you trust.
Have you not been to the dentist for a very long time and developed quite a few dental problems as a result? Or, have you recently been in a traumatic accident where several of your teeth were damaged? Whatever the case may be, you can trust your smile to Island City Dental. Our expert dentists are able to come up with personalized treatment plans that can fully address even the most complicated dental cases. No matter what state your teeth may be in now, know that there is hope, and a beautiful, healthy smile is closer than you might think.
