Cosmetic Dentistry

CAD/CAM Technology

Dental restorations just got easier for you. When it comes to needing a crown or bridge, instead of taking an impression of your teeth and sending it to a lab for scanning, Dr. Rappold can use a variety of technologies, to scan teeth directly. The digitized scan can then be sent to our on-site milling machine to carve the crown from a block of porcelain, while the patient relaxes in the dental chair. After a little finishing and preparation work, the crown is ready for fitting, and the patient is on their way.

CAD/CAM allows Dr. Rappold to custom design your dental restoration and gives your teeth a more natural appearance. No more temporary crowns, no more multiple appointments needed. Only one appointment and you will have a beautiful, perfectly fitted crown.

 

Dental Bonding

Fixing a chipped tooth, cracked tooth or a gap in your teeth is fast, easy and affordable with dental bonding. Dental bonding can also be used to improve the appearance of slightly discolored teeth and to change the shape of teeth, but it is typically recommended only for small cosmetic changes. Unlike other cosmetic treatments, dental bonding can be performed with little to no advance preparation. Dental bonding is also convenient and durable, taking just 30-60 minutes per tooth and lasting from 3-10 years.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an extraordinary blend of science and art. Made of titanium, dental implants are securely anchored into the jaw and serve as roots for dental crowns. In many cases, dental implants – and mini dental implants, the smaller version -- are considered the best option for replacing missing teeth. They are also used to replace dental bridges or partial dentures, or to provide support for dentures. Dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options. They look, feel and function just like real teeth! With dental implants, surrounding teeth are left untouched. Finally, dental implants are exceptionally reliable. Year after year, dental implants have had high success rates and typically last 15-20 years.

 

Single Tooth Implants

If you're missing a tooth and want the very best dentistry has to offer, you could be the perfect candidate for single-tooth implants. Single-tooth implants act as tooth roots for replacement teeth. They are securely anchored into the jaw and topped with a dental crown for the very best in look, feel and function. Single-tooth implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options, such as dental bridges and partial dentures. Surrounding teeth and the jawbone are better preserved. Single-tooth implants are also easier to clean. And they can also outlast bridges and dentures by about 10 years!
