Make Your Smile Last A Lifetime
The young patients of today have the benefit of Fluoride and Pit and Fissure Sealants at an early age and have the opportunity to have a healthy smile for a lifetime with little more than routine cleanings and possibly orthodontic treatment.
At our practice, we strive to make all our patients feel comfortable and at home. Many of the restorative dental patients we see at our office have not been as fortunate as the youth of today, have neglected their teeth for years or have had substandard care. No matter the condition of your teeth, there is no reason to be embarrassed. The biggest step in rebuilding your smile is making the decision to come see us. An in-depth consultation and assessment will help us identify the obstacles that have kept you from seeking routine care. Once these obstacles have been discovered, we will work together to create an individualized treatment plan that will help you regain good dental health.

If your teeth have been damaged by decay, disease, or trauma, it is important that you protect the remaining healthy structure with dental fillings. Our doctors do not use any outdated metal amalgam filling material, but rather restore your teeth with tooth-colored composite material that is more attractive and reacts more naturally with your enamel. Our expert dentists can ensure that your fillings are placed correctly to provide the utmost protection for your teeth.
Cosmetic flaws in your smile, including small gaps between teeth as well as chips, cracks, and discoloration, can be masked with dental bonding. Using a tooth-colored resin material, Dr. Christ and Dr. Nowicki can mold your tooth into the perfect shape. This same bonding material can be used to replace unsightly metal fillings. The bonding process is a quick and affordable way to perfect the appearance of your teeth. Unlike porcelain veneers and dental crowns, which have to be fabricated in a laboratory, dental bonding can be done in the office in just a single visit.
If damage or decay has left your teeth looking less than perfect and functioning less than optimally, Dr. Christ and Dr. Nowicki can provide you with durable porcelain crowns. These natural-looking restorations can improve the form, function, and aesthetics of your teeth. If properly cared for, they will provide you with a healthy, beautiful smile for many years. Dental crowns are custom-crafted to restore existing teeth or cover dental implants. The dental crown procedure has dramatically improved over the years, and these artificial teeth now offer astonishingly realistic results.
Inlays and onlays are used when more tooth structure is removed than a filling can restore, however, a full coverage crown is not indicated. They are custom-crafted to fit the exact contours of your teeth. Inlays are within the cusps, or biting surfaces of your teeth, while onlays are placed over the cusps. Inlays and onlays can restore the structure and function of your teeth and make your smile look more natural than metal fillings. If you are interested in this treatment, or any of our other restorative dental treatments, contact our East Lake practice today.
If one or several consecutive teeth have been lost or compromised by damage or decay, dental bridges can close the gaps and provide a full and functional jaw of teeth. Whether anchored by dental implants or existing teeth these tooth-colored, natural-looking restorations look and feel like real teeth and provide the same functionality.
If missing or severely damaged teeth are making it difficult to bite, chew, and speak normally, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. These small, strong titanium implants are surgically placed in your jawbone to mimic a natural tooth root. They are used to secure natural-looking dental crowns or bridges, thereby restoring the structure, function, and aesthetics of your smile. Our doctors work closely with renowned implant specialists who will perform the surgery using the most advanced techniques. Once the implants have properly fused to the bone, Dr. Christ or Dr. Nowicki will place the restoration on the implant to make your smile complete.
