Refine Your Appearance With Our Featured Treatments
For the right candidates, implants are the very best solution for missing teeth. Unlike traditional restorations, an implant-supported crown, bridge, or denture also replaces the tooth roots. Implants are small titanium devices that fuse permanently with the jaw to provide an unrivaled level of support and stability for all sizes of restorations. They also stop the jaw atrophy that follows tooth loss. Our doctors have advanced training in the placement and restoration of implants.
At Advanced Dentistry of Blakeney, we offer several types of implants, including the advanced All-on-4 placement method. This specialized treatment can support a full denture using only four implant posts. Our doctors will place two implants vertically in the front of the jaw and two at an angle to take advantage of the remaining jawbone tissue. For many patients, All-on-4 saves time and money by eliminating the need for a dental bone graft. It can also reduce the number of adjustments your denture needs over the years since the implants prevent jaw atrophy.
The search for the perfect smile is over. Today's porcelain veneers are virtually identical to natural teeth, and they are uniquely capable of hiding the common imperfections that can detract from your smile. Whether you'd like to conceal staining, irregularly shaped teeth, or other concerns, veneers can achieve a stunning transformation in just two quick visits to our office. Our cosmetic dentists only use the highest quality materials, including IPS e.max® and IPS Empress®. These lifelike, durable ceramics offer an incredible range of shade-matching options.
A smile makeover combines two or more cosmetic and restorative treatments to address all of your dental issues in a streamlined procedure. Common elements of treatment include teeth whitening, veneers, and bonding. You are in charge of your treatment during a smile makeover, and our dentists are here to listen to your needs and goals. A smile makeover can also save you time and money by reducing the number of office visits and anesthesia needed to perform the treatment.
A dental crown is a custom restoration that covers the surface of a damaged tooth, protecting it from further damage, reinforcing its strength, and concealing aesthetic flaws all at once. Our doctors use CEREC® technology to create beautiful, long-lasting restorations in just one visit. Same-day restorations eliminate the need for temporaries and multiple appointments, allowing you to enjoy your results much faster.
