You can straighten your teeth without metal braces. Invisalign™ is an FDA approved system that uses clear, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth. There are no uncomfortable brackets or wires, and because you remove the aligners to eat and drink, there are no food restrictions or problems with brushing or flossing.
Invisalign™ uses 3D computer imaging to map out your entire treatment plan in advance, allowing you to see what your teeth will look like before you begin treatment. Then, using the imaging, a series of custom aligners are created that will move teeth incrementally. You will replace each aligner every two weeks with the next aligner in the sequence. Average treatment time from initial teeth position to brilliant, straight smile ranges from 9 to 15 months. The best part is, most people will never notice that you are undergoing treatment!
Implants-Restoration Are you missing teeth? Have you postponed getting a bridge or denture? Do you wear ill-fitting, loose dentures right now? Terrace Hill Dental wants to improve your quality of life with dental implants.
As the prosthetic that most closely mimics nature’s design, dental implants serve as substitute tooth roots. Each implant is strategically placed in the jaw, where bone integrates with it to create a solid foundation for a crown, bridge or denture. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Benefits of Dental Implants: Promote bone retention Eliminate slipping, loose, wobbly dentures Don’t require support from healthy teeth Can last a lifetime Look, feel, and function like natural teeth
Implant Supported Dentures
While typical dentures shift and require the use of denture adhesives to keep them in place, implants fit solidly, reducing the problems associated with traditional dentures such as gum sores, difficulty speaking and difficulty chewing. Implant supported dentures distribute your biting pressure more like natural teeth than traditional dentures, stimulating the supportive structures of your teeth and preventing the bone and soft tissues from shrinking away. You can replace an entire set of teeth with beautiful, natural-looking implants.
Same Day Crowns
Tired of the inconvenience of multiple appointments to have a crown, veneer, or bridge placed? With CEREC technology, you can restore your decayed, cracked or chipped tooth in one appointment. Terrace Hill Dental makes this possible with CEREC technology. CEREC creates full crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneer restorations, made of compressed porcelain, in a matter of minutes. It is for this reason that they are stronger than laboratory restorations, which are layered porcelain. The most beneficial feature of receiving a CEREC restoration is that it is accomplished in one visit. In addition to the benefit of a one visit restoration, you will not need to endure uncomfortable impression material to bite on or temporary to wear. Ask us about using CEREC for your next restoration.
