You can look good and have a healthy smile. Most people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth do not realize the numerous ways cosmetic dentistry can heal a smile. Cosmetic dentistry can correct crooked teeth, spaces between your teeth, stained or discolored teeth, chipped teeth, broken or missing teeth and having a “gummy” smile. Robinson and Prijic Family Dental creates a customized treatment plan for you, based on your age, goals and your financial comfortable level.
Patients rave about our tooth-whitening program. Imagine removing surface stains and having the white smile you had when you were a teenager. Robinson & Prijic Family Dental Associates offers in-office or professional take-home bleaching that is supervised by a dentist to help patients uncover a clean, renewed smile!
When teeth are missing, your smile undergoes significant changes. Missing teeth can cause you to chew differently and may cause mouth pain. As your remaining teeth work to compensate for the loss, gaps and spaces form that only make the situation worse. A porcelain bridge, custom designed by Robinson and Prijic Family Dental, keeps your smile aligned and your bite functional. Bridges are anchored to existing teeth on either side of the missing tooth. They are permanent, meaning they can only be affixed or removed by a dentist and are a long-term restorative solution to your damaged smile.
You can erase years of wear and tear with porcelain crowns. Robinson and Prijic Family Dental uses a tooth-like crown made of porcelain to restore your tooth after the decay has been removed. Crowns are also used to restore chipped teeth, broken teeth, gaps in teeth and other damage. Also called “caps,” porcelain crowns mimic natural looking teeth in both shape and color.
At Robinson and Prijic Family Dental you can enjoy the added convenience of our in-house dental lab with three trusted technicians fabricating your crowns, bridges, and dentures from start to finish, allowing our doctors to keep a watchful eye every step of the way to ensure the highest possible quality. All dentures are custom made to ensure excellent fit and superb cosmetics, and repairs to dentures can be made immediately. Additionally, the fabrication of the crowns, bridges, and dentures can be made quickly and efficiently on site.
The lab technicians work closely with our dentists to ensure that all porcelain crowns blend seamlessly with your natural smile. Shade change or adjustments can be made on site to ensure a perfect match on all crowns and bridges.
Robinson and Prijic’s in-house lab technicians are highly skilled and trained to fabricate all types of crowns – whether gold or all ceramic. If you are ever unhappy, all adjustments can be made in-house both quickly and professionally. Robinson and Prijic’s in‑house lab is one of very few private clinics with an on-site, full-service lab, allowing for the very best, the quickest, and the most professional services available.
Are you embarrassed about your smile because of decayed, disfigured or discolored teeth? If so, you may be a good candidate for composite resins, also known as tooth-colored fillings or restorations. When the decay has been removed from the tooth, it is replaced with a “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. However, with new advancements in dentistry, you can now have the option of tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings resulting in a longer lasting, brighter, whiter smile. The new tooth-colored material is bonded to the teeth.
Bonding is a tooth-colored material applied and adhered to the surface of the tooth. The bonding material is sculpted by your dentist to resemble a natural tooth, correcting chipped, broken, stained, or discolored teeth, and in some cases also correcting gaps. It is less of an investment than crowns or caps, but like a natural tooth, the resin may stain with the use of coffee or other staining foods.
You can straighten your teeth without metal braces. Invisalign™ is an FDA approved system that uses clear, removable aligners to incrementally straighten your teeth. There are no uncomfortable brackets or wires, and because you remove the aligners to eat and drink, there are no food restrictions or problems with brushing or flossing.
Invisalign™ uses 3D computer imaging to map out your entire treatment plan in advance, allowing you to see what your teeth will look like before you begin treatment. Then, using the imaging, the doctors at Robinson & Prijic Family Dental will create a series of custom aligners that will move teeth incrementally. You will replace each aligner every two weeks with the next aligner in the sequence. Average treatment time from initial teeth position to brilliant, straight smile ranges from 9 to 15 months. The best part is: most people will never notice that you are undergoing treatment!
Your smile today may not be as brilliant as it once was. Years of wear and tear, injury, or poor care can hurt the look and function of your teeth. Robinson and Prijic Family Dental change lives every day through restorative dentistry. Rejuvenate your smile today!
