A crown is a dental restoration that may be used to protect a tooth when it's at risk for a break, to attach a dental bridge, or to restore a tooth after a root canal. We offer porcelain crowns and porcelain fused to high noble metal crowns to restore the grins of our guests, for the most aesthetically pleasing results and impressive stability.
Periodontic Gum Therapy
Left untreated, the outcome of severe gum disease can be devastating and has been linked to tooth loss, heart attack and stroke, diabetes, and certain forms of cancers. Proactive and preventive dentistry is the key to warding off periodontitis. Staying consistent with oral hygiene exams is the best way our guests can help keep their grins and their bodies healthy.
With metal or amalgam fillings, expansion and contraction often take place within the filling, causing cracks in the tooth structure. Our composite resin fillings completely bond to the tooth, eliminating any tiny gaps surrounding the filling. Instead of pushing against the tooth structure like amalgam fillings, metal-free fillings work as a team with your teeth!
Sports & Mouthguards
For our guests who play contact sports, Under Armour Mouthwear is a perfect solution for protecting the mouth from trauma. If you play aggressive sports such as football, basketball, soccer, or hockey, ask Dr. Mundy-Burgett about a custom-fit sports mouthguard to keep your grin in top-notch shape while playing the sport you love.
Sealants are thin coatings that are typically placed on the back teeth, or molars, as a preventative measure. Placing sealants is a simple process. First, the tooth surface will be cleaned and etched to create a rough surface for the sealant to adhere to, then a liquid sealant is applied and hardened using a special light. The results are a sturdy, unnoticeable coating that will keep your smile protected for a long time.
Eating Disorder Treatment
Both anorexia and bulimia are known to cause extensive damage to a person’s oral health and general well-being. Many who have lived with an eating disorder may experience tooth discoloration, decay, or even tooth loss. With the attentive care of a qualified dentist like Dr. Mundy-Burgett, your oral health and well-being can be preserved and restored.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is designed to save a problem tooth. Severe decay, gum disease, trauma, or a tooth fracture can all cause an infection that spreads to the pulp, resulting in excruciating pain or tooth abscesses. Root canal therapy is an easy, quick procedure that is virtually pain-free. It involves removing the affected enamel and diseased tissue, then filling the disinfected space and capping it with a porcelain crown.
Our goal is to always help you preserve your natural teeth by all means possible, but sometimes there are reasons a tooth simply can’t be saved. Tooth extraction isn’t as scary as it sounds. With today’s advanced dentistry, numbing gels or sedation make pulling a tooth an easy, more comfortable procedure. Often, the patient feels little or no discomfort during a tooth extraction.
Grin Dentistry focuses on preventative care that is personalized to meet the individual needs of each guest, which is how we keep smiles bright and healthy. Download our free after-care instruction manuals to protect your oral health investment.Download
Dentures restore the function and beauty of smiles after tooth loss. Both full and partial dentures improve the ability to chew, speak, and grin with confidence. They also provide support for the facial muscles, drastically improving the appearance of the face and smile.
Implant Supported Dentures
An implant-supported denture has special attachments that allow it to be attached securely to the implant, so there’s no slipping, discomfort, or need for special adhesives. Patients who have made the switch from traditional dentures to implant-supported dentures also notice improved speech and the ability to feel temperature and texture better while eating.
Using the latest and greatest in dental tools and techniques, together with her undeniable eye for artistry, Dr. Mundy-Burgett can help you achieve the smile you’ve always dreamed of, regardless of how problematic you feel your current smile may be.Learn More
