Cosmetic Dental Procedures

Several cosmetic dental procedure are available for dramatically transforming the appearance of teeth with various flaws. Teeth that are dull, stained, or discolored can be brightened and whitened with teeth whitening. Procedures such as bonding and contouring can repair and reshape teeth, while Lumineers give teeth a brand new surface. Your Pembroke Pines general dentist can review all the cosmetic dentistry options with you and help you choose the right ones for your needs. Cosmetic dental procedures available at Miracle Dental Center include:

  • Dental bonding
  • Cosmetic contouring
  • Cosmetic Fillings
  • Lumineers
  • Tooth Whitening

Dental bonding and cosmetic contouring are procedures for repairing and reshaping teeth. Dental bonding involves the use of a tooth-colored resin material that is carefully applied to cracks, chips, and other problems to correct them. As the resin material dries, it bonds with the tooth, permanently fixing cracks and chips. Cosmetic contouring is a method for reshaping misshaped or oddly shaped teeth by strategically removing small amounts of enamel until the desired tooth shape is achieved.

Cosmetic fillings are tooth-colored dental fillings that blend in with your natural teeth. Whether the filling is used to fill a cavity or as part of root canal treatment, the cosmetic filling strengthens the tooth while blending in naturally. Professional tooth whitening treatments can brighten and whiten teeth by several shades in a single treatment that lasts only about an hour. Professional tooth whitening treatments applied by dental staff are safe and effective, and results can last for up to several years.

Lumineers are wafer-thin covers that give teeth a brand new look. Lumineers can be used to cover teeth that are stained, misshaped, cracked, chipped, discolored, or dull. Lumineers can even close small gaps between teeth. The process of placing Lumineers on the front surface of teeth is fairly simple. The Lumineers are permanently bonded to the teeth so they remain securely in place for years.

Time and oral injury have taken their toll on your smile. You're missing several teeth, and you want to span the resulting gaps and chew denturesand bite normally again. Are your smile goals achievable? If you visit Miracle Dental Center, they are. This highly and diversely skilled team of general dentists in Cooper City, FL and serving Pembroke Pines offer numerous restorative, preventive, and cosmetic services. Dentures are one of them.

What are dentures?

They are tooth replacements made of lifelike acrylic. Customized according to precise oral impressions and digital X-ray imaging, dentures from Miracle Dental Center allow you to:

  • Bite and chew your favorite foods
  • Smile with confidence
  • Avoid premature facial wrinkling
  • Normalize your speech clarity

There are 60 million edentulous people in the United States, and many do not wear dentures or other tooth replacements. That's unfortunate and ill-advised. If you desire a fully functional teeth once again, your general dentists in Cooper City and Pembroke Pines can help. Their carefully crafted prosthetics are stable and well-fitting; so you can count on them to last for many years.

Types of dentures

Basically, there are four types of dentures. You and your general dentist will decide what type is best for your unique needs.

Partial denture This appliance replaces one or more missing teeth on the top or bottom arch. Consisting of artificial teeth, or pontics, mounted on a light metal frame, a partial denture affixes to adjoining natural teeth via snugly-fitting clasps. A "partial" resembles a puzzle piece, filling the gaps in your otherwise healthy smile.

Full conventional denture This appliance replaces an entire arch of teeth. It is fitted and placed after gums have healed and receded after tooth extraction. If the patient has enough jaw bone, the dentist may suggest an implant-retained denture. Supported on multiple titanium implants inserted into the jaw, this kind of denture provides superior chewing and stability. Plus, it preserves the size and density of the jaw bone.

Immediate denture The dentist places this type of prosthetic right after tooth extraction, allowing the patient to leave the office with a full set of teeth. Unfortunately, however, most immediate dentures require relining or even replacement because as the gums and bone heal, they shrink, changing the fit of the denture.

Tags: root canal  

Root canals are one of the most misunderstood dental treatments. Despite the fact that they have a reputation for being an exceptionally root canalspainful and traumatic procedure, the truth is that they are actually an important tool in relieving pain associated with extensive tooth decay and dental injuries. The dentists at Miracle Dental Center in Cooper City, FL and serving the Pembroke Pines, FL Area, offer root canal therapy to save an injured tooth.

Root Canal Therapy in Pembroke Pines, FL

The only way to know for sure if a root canal is necessary is to see a dentist. Because they are performed to treat infections and damage to the pulp, the nerves and soft tissue inside the tooth, mild to severe tooth pain is usually the most common sign of a problem that may require treatment with root canal therapy. A root canal works by clearing bacteria and damaged pulp tissue from inside the tooth. Although they are rumored to be extremely painful and difficult, in reality the procedure is fairly similar to having a regular cavity filled. Root canals actually help to prevent both short and long term dental pain by relieving the pain caused by an infection or large cavity.

In the long term, root canals can help to save badly damaged teeth from extraction, which is a much more painful and traumatic procedure, which will also require additional treatment and financial investment to replace the tooth with a dental implant. Pain is not necessarily a sign that you will need a root canal, but it should not be ignored.

Find out if this preventive treatment is the best way to protect teeth from decay.dental sealants

We are always looking for ways to protect our smiles from the perils of decay. Of course, besides brushing and flossing, you may want to turn to other methods for ensuring that your smile stays healthy. Our dentists at Miracle Dentistry in Cooper City, FL, and serving Pembroke Pines are here to provide more information about dental sealants, how they work to protect teeth from decay and whether they are the right approach for your smile.

What are dental sealants?

When you chew your food it’s mostly the molars and back teeth doing the work. If you were to check out these teeth in the mirror you would see all the little grooves. These are dangerous areas, as food and plaque can easily nestle within these grooves. While brushing and flossing can certainly help keep these problems at bay, sometimes it’s worth it to add another layer of protection against decay. This is where dental sealants come in.

This special tooth-colored plastic is sealed over the chewing surfaces of back teeth to act as a barrier to prevent decay from getting trapped in these nooks and grooves. Our Pembroke Pines, FL, family dentists will often recommend this preventive option to children and teens; however, adults can also choose to get dental sealants.

How do I get dental sealants?

This procedure is extremely fast and completely painless, making it a great option for even those who may have anxiety surrounding dental procedures. No drilling, anesthesia or needles are required. In fact, you can even get dental sealants during your next dental cleaning.

Once your teeth have been cleaned, we will paint the sealant over the surface of your teeth, where the material will bond with the enamel. A special dental light will then be directed over the tooth, which will harden the material into place. Once the sealant is hardened it will start working to protect your teeth from decay.

Just remember that sealants don’t mean that you can brush and floss only when you feel like it, load up on sugar and junk food, or come in less frequently for routine dental care. Sealants are certainly a great way to maintain a healthy smile but you will still need to maintain good oral hygiene.

If you are worried about decay and want to find out if dental sealants can help, then call Miracle Dental Center in Cooper City, FL, and serving Pembroke Pines. Sealants can be a wonderful option for children, teens but also adults. Call us today to learn more.

Veneers are a cosmetic dental solution that has steadily increased in popularity. Many of our patients at Miracle Dental Center in Cooperveneers City, Florida who seek cosmetic improvement for their teeth have inquired about veneers. Our skilled dentists - Dr. May Yazji-Corey and Dr. Dora Rodriguez - have answered a few of the questions they often hear from these patients who are considering veneers. If you're one of them, read on.

How can veneers help me?

Take a look in the mirror. What is it about your teeth that you'd like to fix? Regardless of your answer - the shape, size, color or alignment - veneers are the perfect solution to just about any dental flaw. They work by covering the problems with a natural-looking porcelain segment that is attached to your teeth using a bonding solution.

How are veneers made?

It's hard to find anything that is custom-fit just for you. Shoes, clothes, hats - almost everything you wear comes ready-made to fit everyone. Veneers from your Cooper City dentist, however, are made to your exact specifications. From the color to the size, everything is carefully measured and chosen by your dentist at Miracle Dental Center. Each veneer is milled from porcelain in a dental laboratory using precision equipment, then carefully smoothed, polished and tinted. The result is a wafer-thin section of porcelain - about half the width of a dime - that perfectly fits over each corresponding tooth.

How are veneers attached?

Your Cooper City dentist prepares your natural teeth for veneer placement by filing away of some of their enamel. This ensures a solid attachment and comfortable fit. The bonding cement used to attach the veneers is durable and can last as long as twenty years.

Ready to make the decision toward a better smile? Your first step is to contact Miracle Dental Center in Cooper City, FL. Our staff will be glad to set up a consultation about veneers for you!
