Dental Implants

At VP Dental, we have years of experience with dental implants. If you have a gap in your smile due to decay or injury, dental implants are the ideal permanent solution. They provide support for the jaw bone, preventing the bone loss that often happens with dentures, they look just like your natural teeth, and they function just like them too! 

Once Dr. Preston determines that you are a good candidate for dental implants, she can begin the placement process. First, she numbs your mouth, then removes any damaged teeth to make room in the jaw bone for the titanium posts (artificial roots). Then she closes the gum tissue over the implant so that the healing process can begin. After your mouth has healed, an abutment and permanent crown are placed on top of the implant.

There are many benefits to getting dental implants at VP Dental. They stay inside your mouth permanently, so you don’t have to worry about denture glue or the hassle of taking them out, storing them, and putting them back in. They don’t need to be attached to neighboring teeth, which allows you to keep those teeth intact, making oral hygiene easier to manage. Unlike dentures, they don’t slip and slide inside your mouth, so there are no problems with slurred speech.

Invisalign

Have you been avoiding needed orthodontic treatment because you dread being a “brace-face”? Would having a mouth full of metal create problems in your career? Are you out of your teen years and hoping for a way to achieve a straighter smile without the “immature” look of being a braces-wearer? Do you dread adhering to the banned foods list and all the extra work that goes into keeping teeth clean with braces? 

Depending on the kind of orthodontic treatment your teeth need, you could be a good candidate for Invisalign at VP Dental. Invisalign is a clear plastic alternative to wires and brackets for patients who prefer a low-profile approach to teeth straightening. The way it works is that Dr. Preston will take a digital imprint of your teeth to design your aligners. 

Aligners are to be worn 22 hours a day. You’ll only take them out at meals and while brushing and flossing your teeth. Aligners are designed to fit comfortably over your teeth to gradually correct your smile. You will progress through a series of aligner trays, changing out every few weeks until your smile is in its correct position, after which you’ll keep it looking great with retainers.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Our smiles are often the first things people notice about us when they meet us, which makes them a huge part of our self-confidence and our image. We need smiles we’re proud to show off so that we can be ourselves and make the best first impressions. If you find yourself hiding your smile because you’re self-conscious about the way your teeth look, VP Dental offers cosmetic dentistry services that can help give you a smile to be proud of. 

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on the aesthetics of a smile. Not every general dentist offers cosmetic dental services, but Dr. Preston has experience creating dazzling smiles. There are a few different approaches, depending on the individual patient’s needs. If you have some discoloration or stains on your teeth, whitening trays could be your ideal solution. If you have some chipping or other damage, veneers or dental bonding might be necessary to restore your smile.

The comprehensive cosmetic dentistry option we offer is the full smile makeover. Before we can determine which treatment will be best for you, we will need to see you for an initial consultation. What are your goals for your smile? Dr. Preston will take those into account when developing your smile transformation treatment plan. We look forward to helping you regain confidence in your smile!
