Teeth Whitening, Dental Implants, Veneers
From routine cleanings and fillings to bruxism devices, Dr. Jill M. DuLac D.D.S. is equipped to handle all your dental needs. To help you understand your options, we’ve included descriptions of some of our leading services on this page.
Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a clinical examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays for proper diagnosis of your teeth.
Implants are synthetic structures that are placed in the area of the tooth normally occupied by the root. Implants are anchored to the jawbone or metal framework on the bone and act as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge. In some cases, implants can be used to attach dentures.
Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic cemented over the front of your teeth to change their color or shape. Veneers are used on teeth with uneven surfaces or are chipped, discolored, oddly shaped, unevenly spaced or crooked.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed over the top of a tooth. Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal. When decay in a tooth has become so advanced that large portions of the tooth must be removed, crowns are often used to restore the tooth.
Whitening procedures have effectively restored the smile of people with stained, dull, or discolored teeth. More and more people today are choosing whitening procedures to reverse the effect of aging and staining from food and tobacco.
Our goal is to help you to minimize the risk of emergency treatment. This is why we commit a generous amount of time designing a Lifetime Treatment Plan that will help you to offset the possibility of unforeseen pain or tooth breakage.
