Dental Implants 

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is a man made permanent replacement of a tooth that is missing. The implant is surgically anchored into the bone of the jaw where the missing tooth once was. Dental implants are made of two portions, a titanium screw (the part of the implant that is screwed into the bone acting as the root of a natural tooth) and the crown portion (the part of the tooth which is visible in your mouth).

When Are Dental Implants Used?

Dental Implants are not only used to replace one or multiple missing teeth but they can also be used to support a denture or a bridge, and also to prevent bone loss. Due to absence of teeth in your mouth one may find it more difficult to eat, dental implants will recover teeth’s natural function. Dental implants are also used for aesthetic purposes, to boost your confidence, by bringing back the natural appearance of your teeth.

Dental Implants Procedure

A dental implant requires 4 visits to the dentist.

  1. A consultation with the dentist to determine weather an implant is a good choice for you and if it can be done. It is also important for the dentist to explain the procedure and inform you of what you may expect during and after the surgery.

  2. The surgical procedure of the implant.

  3. A follow up visit to make sure that the implant is adapting well.

  4. Another follow up visit a month or so later to confirm that everything is as it should be.

Because it is easy for plaque to build around an implant, recall visits are extremely important to ensure long-term success of the implant(s).

Veneers

What are veneers?

This is similar to teeth contouring where cosmetic procedure is performed to enhance your smile. While teeth contouring involve sculpting teeth to achieve desired shape, veneers can help you achieve your desired esthetic appearance not only by changing the shape but also color, angle, or spacing of your teeth. If multiple front teeth are chipped or fractured, veneers is a great option to help restore the look of your teeth. Although there are different types of veneers available, veneers are generally thin shells (can be as thin as contact lenses!) that are permanently placed in the front surface of your front teeth. They are stain-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about your veneers turning yellow over time

What are veneers for?

Veneers are placed to fix variety of problems such as:

  • Discoloration

  • Fractures and cracks

  • Gaps between teeth

  • Irregularly shaped teeth

How long do veneers last?

Veneers typically last approximately 10-15 years. To make your veneers last as long as possible, it requires daily maintenance where you will need to floss and brush every day in addition to bi-annual scaling by your hygienist.

How are veneers done and how many visits are required?

Consultation

A consultation with the dentist is mandatory as with any other dental procedures. This consultation session helps the dentist to figure out what your wants and needs are to achieve your most ideal smile. The dentist will be working alongside with you to come to a final collaborative decision in regards to the size, shape, and shade of the veneers. Once it has been decided that veneers are, in fact, a suitable procedure for you, the dentist will then fabricate a treatment plan which is to proceed in the next appointment.

Preparation

A thin layer of your teeth will be carefully removed or “filed” down to sculpt targeted set of teeth. This amount of enamel removed will provide space for veneers to be bonded. Although local anesthetics may not be required depending on the patient preference and sensitivity, it is usually administered for your maximum comfort during the course of procedure. Once a thin layer of enamel is removed, impressions of your teeth will be taken, which is to be sent to the lab for fabrication of veneers; this will take approximately 1-2 weeks to fabricate the perfect veneers tailored just for you. Temporary veneers will be fabricated and bonded by the end of your preparation procedure, which will be replaced by the permanent veneers once they are ready.

Bonding

Once permanent veneers are ready, the dentist will examine its fit, color as well as shape. The dentist will make necessary adjustments to create the perfect fit and look that are right for you. Once adjustments are made to match your desired appearance, veneers will be permanently cemented onto the teeth as a final step! It is advised to come back after one or two weeks for a quick check up of the state of the gums as well as veneer’s placement

Teeth Whitening

What causes teeth staining?

It is a well-known fact that teeth are easily stained by your typical daily beverage intakes whether it is your morning coffee, can of Coke, or a glass of red wine. Other culprits that contribute to staining of your teeth include tobacco use, tea (particularly black tea), berries that are rich in color, and many more.

ZOOM! Whitening

Saban Family Dental is proudly fully-equipped with Zoom Whitening technology. In a single chair-side whitening procedure, you will see a noticeable difference in the color of your teeth. Zoom whitening gives you an immediate result, so you will walk out of the office with pearly whites that give you a brighter smile! With advanced LED light technology, we are confident in delivering our patients the brightest smile ever. Contact us today to find out how we can help. 

How does it work?

A relatively high but safe dosage of hydrogen peroxide, as opposed to the commonly found 3% over-the-counter hydrogen peroxide product, is used as the main active ingredient during the whitening procedure. This professional grade hydrogen peroxide is activated alongside with Zoom LED light, which helps hydrogen peroxide to penetrate into enamel of the teeth. The chemical reaction that takes place subsequently essentially “breaks” the stain from the inner layer of enamel.

With the help of LED light technology, this process is not only accelerated but can also penetrate deeper to target the most stubborn stains that cannot be removed with over-the-counter whitening products.

Is the procedure painful?

Post procedure sensitivity is not uncommon. Depending on the individual, some may experience sensitivity to a certain extent after the whitening procedure while others may not experience sensitivity at all. To be safe, it is advisable to use desensitizing toothpaste containing fluoride such as Sensodyne or Colgate Pro-Relief.

How long does it take?

To provide highest quality care, your appointment will be booked for 1 hour and 30 minutes. First, impressions of the teeth are taken before the procedure. These impressions are required to fabricate supplementary customized whitening trays for you to take home.

 

To prepare for the whitening procedure, your lips and gums will be completely covered and protected from active ingredients inside the whitening gel. Whitening gel will then be applied to targeted teeth, which will be activated by ZOOM whitening LED light. Not including preparation time, the whitening procedure alone will be 45 minutes.

After teeth whitening care?

It is advised not to consume food and drinks that are rich in deep colour such as coffee, red wine, and berries. Tobacco use is not recommended for about 2-3 days post procedure. Upon completion of whitening procedure, you will be given a set of customized whitening trays to take home along with a whitening syringe. This is to be used for a few hours during the day or overnight to maintain your new pearly whites!

If you are experiencing sensitivity, you can always incorporate desensitizing toothpaste such as Sensodyne or Colgate Pro-Relief. Be sure to continue using for at least two weeks to notice results.

Teeth and Gum Contouring

What Is Teeth & Gum Contouring?

Re-construction of the shape of your teeth and/or gums to improve overall appearance of your smile. This is often considered a cosmetic procedure to enhance one’s aesthetic appearance. However, gum contouring is sometimes indicated as a part of periodontal procedure, and is considered necessary for those who have deep pocket depths, and/or in need of crown lengthening. Deep pocket depths are associated with periodontal disease in which tissues of gums are involved. If not treated, there is an increased risk of tooth/teeth loss from advanced tissue and bone destruction.

Saban Dental offers re-construction of the shape of your teeth and/or gums to improve overall appearance of your smile. An initial consultation is highly recommended for both of the procedures. Give us a call today for your free consultation!

How Is Teeth & Gum Contouring Done?

Teeth contouring

Whether you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile due to uneven appearance of teeth or front teeth are fractured or chipped from external factors, teeth contouring procedure is a cost-effective approach to help achieve your desired smile. Targeted teeth are essentially “filed down” to fix slightly chipped teeth, or to sculpt the shape of your teeth. It can be sculpted to your desired shape and size; edges can either be rounded or squared, depending on your personal preference. This is usually a painless procedure but may require anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure. This procedure can be completed within one appointment.

Teeth contouring may or may not be performed in conjunction with bonding. Bonding is required, however, if the tooth has been significantly chipped beyond the simple repair of a contouring procedure.

Bonding

Bonding is required if a tooth is largely fractured, and a significant amount of tooth structure has been chipped off. Similar to simple contouring, bonding procedure also requires removal of tooth enamel to prepare the tooth before a resin – which is plastic material – is glued to the targeted tooth.

Gum contouring

Gum contouring procedure is often performed to correct “gummy” smiles. If the gums are covering a large portion of crowns of your teeth, this “excess” part of the gum can be surgically removed to lengthen the appearance of the crowns. This is also considered a cosmetic treatment if the goal is strictly to enhance the appearance of your smile. This may be considered a part of periodontal treatment if overgrowth of the gum tissues results in excessive plaque buildup, which could potentially lead to development of periodontal disease.

Gum contouring procedure requires local anesthetic to maximize your comfort during the procedure. Once desired gum line has been decided between the patient and the dentist upon initial consultation, gums will essentially be surgically removed to achieve your desired appearance. This procedure can be done within a single visit to the dentist, and recovery time can range between a few days or weeks.
