Dental Crowns and Veneers

When you smile, you want people to notice. But you want them to notice for all the right reasons. Today’s aesthetics dentistry relies on many principles driven by art as well as science. All porcelain veneers and crowns function just like natural teeth. Restorations of the past were made with porcelain that was adhered to a metal base, these veneers or crowns could create a dark shadow at the gum line. And because metal reflects light, the veneer or crown made the teeth looked flat and unnatural.

All porcelain veneers are shaded to match your smile (so they blend with our natural color), shape and size to complement your features (so your teeth aren’t too big) and aren’t translucent for a natural look. Even inlays and onlays used in restoration are created to match your natural tooth color.

Dr. Hernandez will do a complete exam of your teeth and will determine if veneers or crowns are indicated for you. Usually with veneers it is possible to improve the aesthetics of your teeth and smile dramatically.

Veneers can improve the shape of your teeth, make your teeth as white as you want and give you the smile you have always wanted. Veneers are bonded to your teeth structure, which gives them strength. This is how you can get a beautiful smile quickly.

A smile makeover can take years off your appearance, boost your self confidence, and increase your self-esteem. Best of all, your smile will look completely natural, as if you were born with it. People will notice, for the right reason.

Vizilite Plus

We know that oral cancer claims one life every hour in the U.S. — and the mortality rate has not changed significantly in over 40 years. This disease is of great concern for Dr. Hernandez because oral cancer is very treatable when discovered early.

Because early detection is key to successful outcomes, this practice has incorporated Vizilite, and FDA — cleared medical technology for oral screening to ensure that you receive the most comprehensive oral screening possible. Vizilite is the oral screening what mammogram, PAP smear and the PSA test are to breast, cervical and prostate screenings.

Vizilite is simple, painless and non-invasive instrument that improves the doctor’s ability to visualize, evaluate and monitor suspicious areas at their earliest stages. Vizilite helps the doctor see what he/she can’t see with the unaided eye.

After a standard visual and physical oral cancer examination. Vizilite gives us the highest level of confidence that I’m providing my patients with the most thorough oral cancer screening available. We offer this enhanced oral cancer examination to annually. If you have any questions about Vizilite, please call our office.

Digital Radiograph

Digital x-rays are images that are taken digitally and loaded into a computer file especially for a specific patient. The advantages of digital x-rays include exposure to lower radiation (only 10% of the radiation of traditional x-rays). They can also be enlarged to the full size of a computer screen, allowing the doctor to have improved viewing and a better ability for analysis and diagnosis.

Diagnodent

We also utilize a new state-of-the-art tool known as a Diagnodent which uses a laser to determine the exact amount and depth of bacteria in the tooth structure which allows us to be as conservative as possible when planning restorative needs. It allows the dentist to detect decay at a very early stage and therefore, create a smaller and minimal procedure to restore the tooth. The Diagnondent is highly effective and a reliable tool in preventative dentistry.

Metal Free Dentistry

Times and dentistry have changed over the past 20 years. Today, when it comes to the esthetics and health of you teeth, everyone deserves and should receive metal-free dentistry. Whether your replacing or restoring a pre-existing filling, there are a variety of non-metal restorations available in dentistry today.

In the majority of circumstances by intercepting the potential of fracture before experiencing symptoms of hot/cold sensitivity and biting pain, new conservative treatments like tooth colored fillings or porcelain bonded restoration (Cerac) are preventing the side effects of toothaches and broken teeth.

Using a proactive rather than than reactive approach to amalgam (silver filling) replacement many of our patients are happy to report having had such a superior experience. They are pleased to have removed their dark filling with a more natural looking restoration. Therefore, restoring the tooth to its natural appearing state.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth stain during our lifetime due to consumption of a variety of foods and drinks (soft drinks, blueberries, wine, coffee...) New technology of teeth whitening has enabled the dentist to white teeth without having to change or damage any tooth structure.

Almost all whitening methods are similar in concept but some are more effective than others because of the way the material is delivered to the teeth. The other factor in effectiveness of the method is the concentration of the material, which is the reason why some of the over the counter whitening systems usually don’t give patients the results they were looking for and hoping.

The two main methods of professional whitening systems are the trays and the in office whitening procedures. The tray whitening procedure is when an impression is taken of both upper and lower teeth and custom trays are made to fit your teeth perfectly. The whitening gel is then given to the patient to place inside the tray and he/she will wear the tray for a few hours a day. The patient continues this process until they have achieved the results desired.

Sensitivity of the teeth is a normal complication of this method of whitening, however, the dentist may suggest taking a Fluoride home treatment to help with this sensitivity. This is almost always a transitional situation. Patient are also required or suggested to eat at the time of whitening a diet that is mostly white in color. That is chicken, white rice, milk, water, and food that is white nature. Otherwise, you create the risk of staining your teeth further.

In our office we are proud to feature ZOOM in office teeth whitening system, as featured on the ABC’s Extreme Makeover show. Using these systems, you can expect a 7-8 shade change in as little as two hours! Whether you achieve your smile using it at home with trays, our systems are safe and effective and produces amazing results.
