Cosmetic Dentistry is a daily occurrence at Dr. Turnbull’s office. From cosmetic bonding to tooth colored resin restorations, to veneers, crowns and smile makeovers, experience is important.
Cosmetic dentistry is a multi disciplinary field. A myriad of different materials and techniques are involved, The esthetic approach analyzes each tooth and smile individually. Teeth and smiles are complex shapes and colors and every smile is unique. Some cases are relatively simple cases of cosmetic bonding and bleaching. Sometimes, more involved cases may require orthodontics, implants, veneers, or crowns in order to create that “perfect smile.” Creating a perfect smile is an art and a science, one that requires experience.
Over the last 20 years, Dr.Turnbull has successfully restored many dental implants. Implants are a conservative approach to replacement of missing teeth, because it does not involve adjacent teeth like fixed and removable bridges. In 2003, Dr.Turnbull began surgically placing AstraTech dental implants after many hours continuing dental education. Astra Tech is a leader in the field of dental implants, with a success rate over 95%. Dental implants are an excellent method to replace missing teeth, and a wonderful alternative to removable dentures.
Invisalign is an orthodontic method of treating crowded teeth using a series of clear retainers to achieve tooth movement. There are no metal brackets or wires, and they are easily removed for eating and cleaning. This procedure is approved for adults, and is particularly effective for minor crowding, but can be used in many situations. The average treatment time is ten months. Dr. Turnbull became Invisalign certified in 2005. You may be a good candidate for straighter teeth! Straighter teeth are easier to maintain as well as being esthetically pleasing at any age.
