Dr. Leonard Umanoff will design, implant and fit the replacement teeth or do restorative work on faulty crowns, renewing your smile and your chewing ability.
Reasons to Consider Dental Implants
When both the tooth and root are damaged, the best permanent replacement is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This solution both looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
- Without the root structure of a natural tooth the jawbone can shrink making your face look older.
- There are no loose parts. An implant is stable and comfortable.
- Normally, it will serve its owner for life.
- Dental Implants LOOK and FEEL like natural teeth
CEREC Ceramic Crown-Single Visit
What are dental crowns?
A crown is a prosthetic positioned over a tooth to create a smoother look and enhance strength and durability.
WE now have the ability to make crowns in one visit using CEREC CAD/CAM technology. CEREC crowns are made from beautiful and durable ceramic. The ceramic comes in a wide variety of shades, and we can customize the color of your crown to deliver the most life-like appearance.
The placement of a crown is often recommended when:
- a tooth is cracked
- has an old filling
- is severely decayed
With CEREC technology the process of creating a crown is much more convenient, and the fit and quality of the crown are excellent. To start, the Doctor will prepare your tooth to receive a crown and take a digital image of the tooth with a special camera. The crown will be designed on the computer, utilizing state-of-the-art CAD software. The CEREC milling unit fabricates the permanent restoration from a solid block of ceramic, then glazes it in a special oven at 900 degrees. This entire process takes either 30 or 60 min, depending on the type of material we use. You can relax, watch TV, or read a magazine or book while you wait. When your permanent crown is complete, Doctor Umanoff will adjust the details and then permanently bond it in place for a seamless fit and appearance.
Why Choose a CEREC One-Visit Crown:
- They look beautiful as they are all ceramic.
Traditional crowns often look fake due to the gold on the inside of the crown. The ceramic on the outside just doesn't look natural. Light passes through all-ceramic crowns just like it does real teeth, which makes them look significantly more natural.
In today's busy world, it is nice not to have to come back after wearing a temporary crown for two or three weeks.
- Fewer injections and less anesthetic
CEREC restoration can be created in minutes in a single visit! This means less anesthetic for you and fewer injections to keep the tooth numb.
The inconvenience of temporary crowns is done away with. No messy gel impressions are placed in the mouth and there is no need for multiple dental visits.
Invisalign® has changed the face of orthodontics. Instead of wires attached to your teeth, your teeth can now be straightened invisibly.
- Invisalign® is clear. You can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
- Invisalign® is removable. Unlike braces, you can eat and drink what you want during treatment. You can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
- Invisalign® is comfortable. No metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation, and less time in the dentist’s chair getting adjustments.
Dentures are a set of artificial teeth used when a patient has lost real teeth. Patients lose their teeth to a variety of reasons, including:
- severe malnutrition
- genetic defects
- poor oral hygiene
Dentures give better chewing abilities and greater aesthetic appeal by providing the illusion of natural teeth.
Dr. Leonard Umanoff is specially trained in tooth bonding techniques. He has years of experience in cosmetic dentistry and has a natural flair for creating beautiful teeth.
Tooth bonding is used for a variety of purposes:
- Correcting a tooth gap.
- Covering discolorations.
- Repairing chipped/cracked teeth.
Tooth bonding is dependent on the artistic ability of the dentist, since the work is done “freehand,” without taking impressions or using a laboratory. The tooth must be color matched, sculpted, and polished to produce a beautiful and natural looking result.
We offer ZOOM! In-Office & Take-Home Whitening
Teeth whitening is a procedure that removes stains and discoloration from teeth.
Discoloration can be the result of a combination of things:
- genetics the effects of aging
- poor oral hygiene smoking
- accidents certain foods.
With the ability to grow bone where needed we can place implants of proper length and width, restoring functional and aesthetic appearance.
Bone grafting is often closely associated with dental restorations such as bridge work and dental implants. In the majority of cases, the success of a restoration procedure can hinge on the height, depth, and width of the jawbone at the implant site. When the jawbone associated with missing teeth shrinks, or has sustained significant damage, the implant(s) cannot be supported on this unstable foundation and bone grafting is usually recommended for the ensuing restoration.
A dental veneer is a thin layer of synthetic material (porcelain or composite) that is bonded to the tooth’s surface. Veneers are a great alternative to otherwise painful dental procedures to improve the appearance of your smile.
Common problems that Veneers will address:
- Spaces between the teeth
- Broken or chipped teeth
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or misshapen teeth
Lumineers are a painless way to reshape, close gaps, fix chipped teeth and permanently whiten your smile – clinically proven to last over 20 years.
At the core of the tooth is soft tissue (otherwise known as pulp). The hollow area that houses this soft tissue contains a space towards the top of the tooth called the pulp chamber. This pulp chamber is connected to the root of the tooth via pipe-like canals, giving rise to the term “root canal”. The blood vessels in these canals provide nutrition to the tooth. Occasionally, the internal soft tissue of the tooth becomes infected and can result in a serious infection if left untreated. Root canal treatment should take place before the infection gets.
Bridges span the space created when teeth are missing. A bridge may be recommended if you’re missing one or more teeth.
Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. The imbalance caused by missing teeth can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.
