If you are looking for a way to replace missing teeth that offers an alternative to traditional dentures, dental implants can often be an ideal solution. This is a permanent replacement option that utilizes a titanium post and a customized porcelain crown to create a stable tooth that will not move or slip along the gums. Dental implants are designed to look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Implant Supported Dentures
Implant supported dentures are a modernized version of traditional dentures. Ill-fitting traditional dentures are known for slipping along the gumline and causing irritation. However, when dentures are anchored to implants, these concerns can be eliminated. This innovative procedure requires no gel or sticky adhesives and is custom-designed to create the best possible fit and appearance.
Complete and Partial Dentures (Removable)
If you are missing multiple teeth or all of your teeth and you are not a candidate for dental implants, complete or partial dentures may serve as a good alternative. We offer a number of state-of-the-art denture options that can be customized for the best possible fit and appearance. Either full or partial dentures will be recommended based on your specific needs.
Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Full mouth rehabilitation allows our dental team to address multiple dental needs in a combined procedure to improve oral health and the function of your teeth. This can be a good option for individuals who wish to correct a number of common issues – including decay, gum disease, deep stains, missing teeth, and other dental concerns. Both restorative and cosmetic dentistry procedures can be utilized in one overarching treatment plan that is customized for your unique needs.
Crowns and Bridges
Dental crowns are commonly used to strengthen weak teeth that have been compromised by damage or decay. Our office uses CEREC® milling technology, an innovative CAD/CAM dentistry tool, that can create crowns in-house on the day of your appointment. Each crown is custom-made from porcelain, porcelain fused to metal, or gold, and is designed to fit comfortably over the affected tooth. The crown can serve as a procedure on its own or as part of a dental implant treatment.
A dental bridge is a replacement option for multiple missing teeth in a single area. This type of restoration is designed to look and feel natural, and is often a viable solution for patients who are not candidates for dental implants. A bridge can ultimately help restore form, function, and dental health with beautiful results.
iTero® Digital Impressions
Digital impression technology has revolutionized the field of dentistry, and our dental team is proud to offer a more comfortable, more precise, and more efficient way of taking impressions by utilizing the state-of-the-art iTero® Intraoral Scanner. Impressions are necessary for many types of tooth restoration procedures, as well as orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign®. An impression of the teeth and oral structures provides an intricate blueprint for the creation of dental crowns, porcelain veneers, teeth aligners, and other options. In the past, impressions were commonly produced by applying a gooey, putty-like material on the teeth. The process required patients to hold the substance in their mouths for several minutes without moving whatsoever. Traditional impression techniques often caused discomfort, and even triggered a gag-reflex in some patients. The iTero® system eliminates many of those concerns. Instead of using a physical putty to create a mold of the teeth and gums, iTero® involves the guidance of a handheld wand that scans your oral structures with light. This creates a 3-Dimensional digital image on a computer screen, ultimately formulating a “digital impression.” The iTero® Intraoral Scanner is able to complete the impression in under three minutes for most patients, and it involves no putties or other uncomfortable materials being placed in the mouth for extended periods. In addition, the digital impression is almost-immediately visible on the monitor once it’s taken, allowing you to see the image and talk about it with our dental team before the full treatment commences.
iTero® technology also has an extraordinary added benefit: for some treatments, it can show you a simulation of the potential results before you even make a final decision to have the procedure. This is particularly advantageous for patients who are considering Invisalign®, giving them a visual idea of how the teeth can look once the treatment is complete.
Mercury-free fillings allow Dr. Vereen to add support to a tooth that has been damaged by decay. Traditional metal-looking (amalgam) fillings carried a small amount of mercury and also stood out amongst the surrounding teeth. By using tooth-colored fillings, the composite material can blend in and appear natural while giving the tooth durable reinforcement and protection.
