Full Mouth Rehabilitation
If your teeth feel like they are breaking down and chipping away, and your front teeth continue to get shorter and thinner, we have a solution! Often, dentists and their patients are electing to place crowns one by one, picking the worst tooth in the mouth and putting a crown on it. Over time, there is a piecemeal collection of crowns, all with varying shades, and anatomy that replicates the broken down condition of the teeth. There are MANY problems with this approach to treatment, because this is a reactive (band-aid) approach to the problem rather than addressing the root cause.
At Vitality Dental, we are all about figuring out and treating the problem at its source! Seeing your dentist to create a plan for treating these problems proactively, instead of addressing each one as it comes, can create a much more beautiful, functional, and a more affordable solution in the long term.
By treating each tooth one at a time, you guarantee that your smile will NEVER look great. When you place crowns on teeth one at a time (or even if you do all the front ones at the same time), it means that your teeth will basically have the same length/shape as they began with, and they will simply be “protected” from further damage by means of a porcelain covering. Teeth get worn down from having a bad bite, acid erosion, cavities, grinding or a combination of all of these things; a chewing system that is breaking down is not functioning properly.
If you are struggling with mismatched crowns and worn and broken teeth and want to address the CAUSE of these problems while restoring the beauty and vitality of your smile, then give us a call at (816) 452-9700 or email us using the ‘How Can We Help” form below to schedule a consultation!
Custom-crafted to each tooth, veneers provide an artist’s touch to your smile. Regardless of your vision for your smile, chances are veneers can help. When today’s modern materials meet our passion for cosmetic excellence, you’ll be amazed at what you see smiling back at you in the mirror.
Fixing damaged teeth might seem like a lost cause, but there’s often a solid foundation underneath. A crown, or cap, can bring a compromised tooth back to full function. Utilizing modern porcelain materials, you’ll have a difficult time trying to find where the crown ends, and the tooth begins.
Cavities, chips, and fractures can occur on any tooth surface throughout the mouth. Composite filling material is tooth-colored and provides a versatile solution to many common problems. Blended into a prepared area, the composite polishes to a smooth, undetectable finish.
Teeth rarely fracture predictably. Sometimes a break is too big for a filling, but not big enough for a crown. Porcelain onlays provide an excellent solution for teeth that need extra reinforcement without being covered entirely. Bonded into place, they provide years of natural feel, function, and look beautiful too.
There are numerous whitening treatments offered by Vitality Dental, including both at-home and in-office options. Many patients come to our office having already tried whitening products. Feeling like the treatment did not work, they are looking for other solutions to whiten their teeth, but not all dental whitening treatments are the same and there are many factors to consider when whitening teeth.
While over-the-counter whitening options exist, professional strength options have the power to truly impact tooth shade, and can even improve tetracycline staining. At Vitality Dental, we offer our patients the best and safest whitening treatments on the market, and we work together to create a personalized plan to reach each patient’s goals.
