Cosmetic Dentistry

Often times, patients are looking to improve the appearance of their teeth. We want you to be confident with your smile and help protect it at every stage and age in life. Dr. Tucker and his staff have the ability to repair almost any cosmetic issue with your teeth including stained teeth, damaged enamel, chipped teeth, broken teeth, crooked teeth, or missing teeth. We routinely correct these issues with Teeth Whitening, Veneers, Bonding, and beautiful Porcelain Crowns that are impeccably designed to look like real teeth. Dr. Tucker is also very skilled with bridges and implant placement to replace missing teeth, both of which significantly improve the functionality and appearance of your smile. When necessary, we will involve the Orthodontist for braces or invisalign.

Teeth Whitening

There are three basic methods currently used to whiten teeth. All of the existing whitening products employ a type of Hydrogen Peroxide to remove stains and whiten your teeth. The 1st option for teeth whitening is to use “Over the Counter” products. This includes any product you can purchase outside of the dental office and use at home. The second option for teeth whitening is “In Office” whitening. This option is best reserved for someone who is looking for a quick method to whiten their teeth, perhaps for an upcoming special event. The third and our preferred option is custom-fit whitening trays. In this case, Dr. Tucker and his staff take impressions of your teeth and then make custom-fit whitening trays that fit perfectly on your teeth. To use these trays, peroxide gel is placed in the tray which is then worn on the teeth like a retainer. Since the tray is custom made for your teeth, every little crevice, pit, or groove is in contact with the whitening gel. With this method, less whitening gel is required because the tray fits precisely for your teeth. The trays are long-lasting and can be used time and again to achieve the desired level of whitening.

Veneers

Veneers are porcelain coverings that cover only the front side of the tooth, unlike a crown that is placed over the entire surface of a tooth to cover the front and back, 360 degrees around. Veneers are gorgeous and provide a great result, truly transforming your smile to achieve the desired look. Veneers can be used to conceal issues with spacing, misalignment, or tooth shape. Veneers are an ideal cosmetic option for teeth that are in relatively good health, absent of fillings, decay, and wear. For those patients whose teeth are not in good condition, a beautiful Porcelain Crown can be used to provide an equally gorgeous result.

Crowns

A crown or “cap” is a layer of porcelain that replaces the enamel on the tooth. Crowns are typically done on a tooth with a big filling or extensive decay, on a broken tooth, a tooth that has had a root canal, or, a tooth that is worn down. Gone are the days of the Gold Crown, unless you really want one in which case we can definitely get one! These days, we most often use beautiful Porcelain Crowns which are made of a very strong material and are designed to look very natural. These crowns are built to last and provide a great option for patients so that you no longer have to choose between Pretty or Strong. Modern technology and materials now allow patients to have a Crown that is both Beautiful and Strong, and, looks just like a natural tooth. Here at Edmond Dental @ Deer Creek, we use the most innovative approaches and highest quality materials and dental labs in order to achieve the best possible result for all of our restorative procedures.

Bonding

Bonding is a method that is often utilized to cover a minor cosmetic flaw. This procedure utilizes tooth-colored composite material to cover the minor imperfection. The material is bonded onto the tooth with a specialized adhesive that adheres to tooth structure.

Bridge

When a patient needs to replace a missing tooth, a bridge is often used to fill in the gap and restore functionality to your bite. A fixed bridge is cemented in place just like a veneer or a crown. For example, if a patient is missing one tooth, the tooth in front of and behind the missing tooth are shaped for crowns. The bridge is essentially 3 crowns in a row joined together as 1 piece with the middle one being fake (no tooth underneath). Our office uses the highest quality materials and dental labs to ensure that our patients’ bridges are built to last.

Implant

A dental implant is a titanium cylinder placed in a missing tooth site. The implant is threaded like a screw and placed directly into the jaw bone. Implants work extremely well for long term tooth replacement and are a good alternative to a bridge. If you need a tooth replaced, Dr. Tucker will assess your case and take the time to discuss all available options including the possibility of an implant. Notably, Dr. Tucker completed a competitive residency after graduating from dental school in which he received extensive training placing implants.

Fillings

Dental fillings are one of the most basic restorative procedures performed in our office. This restorative option is routinely employed when a cavity is small enough that a composite filling will suffice. We provide our patients with white, tooth-colored composite fillings. When replacing a large existing filling, you should be aware that a Crown may be necessary in order to adequately cover and protect the affected area.

Braces and Orthodontics

One of the more common questions we get is: “will my child need braces?”. The answer is usually yes if what you desire is straighter teeth. Braces are often done strictly for cosmetic purposes. Having said that, we often advise parents to wait until the child has all of their permanent teeth before seeking orthodontic treatment. Sometimes we will refer a child to the orthodontist for early treatment if they have a crossbite, severe crowding, or other issues that require it.

Extractions

Sometimes a tooth cannot be saved and has to be pulled. Dr. Tucker is extremely adept at handling extractions for both adults and children including Permanent teeth, Baby teeth, and ‘Wisdom Teeth Extractions”. Dr. Tucker takes great consideration to ensure the comfort of his patients during all dental procedures and strives to make the extraction experience virtually pain free.
