The foundation for a beautiful smile is a set of beautiful, healthy gums. This is why your dental exams and cleanings are so important. Regular visits to our office will ensure that your teeth and gums will remain strong and healthy, enabling you to keep your beautiful smile for a lifetime.
Our practice is recognized as a leader in the dental technology industry. We utilize digital radiography which is safer (90% less radiation), and faster (3 seconds from your mouth to the computer screen) than conventional x-rays. And they show us much more information about your teeth and gums making a good diagnosis easier and more accurate. We use DIAGNOdent laser cavity detection, Intraoral cameras that allow you to see exactly what we see on a large TV, and the highest quality materials, ensuring that you will get the best possible results.
Imagine a pen-like device that can take close-up pictures of your teeth and gums. The intraoral camera magnifies images, helping us to spot potential problems like cracked fillings, fractures, and early tooth decay.
Now you can see what we see in your mouth, making it even easier to understand your dental condition and treatment options. With early diagnosis, we can treat these potential problems before they become big problems.
There are times when we'll need to repair your teeth. Perhaps your old damaged fillings need replacing, or a broken tooth might need a crown. Bridges or implants can fill the gaps caused by missing teeth. Whatever restorative treatment is chosen, our staff will provide gentle, caring treatment while returning your mouth to its optimum health.
Dr. Siegel is a member of the prestigious Academy of Gp Orthodontics, and is also certified in Invisalign, the invisible way to straighten your teeth. He will examine your teeth and recommend orthodontic treatment options that can correct your tooth and jaw alignment, and improve the attractiveness of your smile. We can place metal or clear braces, depending on your needs and preferences.
In many cases, orthodontic treatment is the least intrusive, and longest-lasting option for improving the look of your smile.
With new state-of-the-art cosmetic treatments, the Big Smile Dental team can whiten, straighten, and fill the gaps in your smile. We'll ask you questions about your dental goals, discuss your options for creating your ultimate smile, and design a customized plan to craft you a dazzling smile.
The treatment options that we provide include:
Thin, strong porcelain shells that are permanently bonded to your teeth. Veneers are used to close gaps, repair chipped or worn teeth, make crowded teeth appear straight, and/or lengthen and lighten teeth.
An enamel-like material that is applied to a damaged tooth, and then hardened with a plasma arc light. Bonding will fill cracks, chips and worn areas of your teeth, giving you a healthy, younger-looking smile.
Nothing is more striking than a bright, white smile. We can whiten and brighten your teeth in one visit. With the revolutionary new BriteSmile, you can walk away with a younger, whiter smile in about an hour.
We also offer home bleaching products, and will create custom-made bleaching trays for your use at home.
Tooth Colored Fillings
You no longer have to put up with a mouth full of dark, metal fillings. Cosmetic white fillings are an attractive and stronger alternative. We can replace your worn, old metal fillings with white restorations for a more natural-looking smile.
Eat, speak and smile with confidence. You no longer have to suffer with the inconvenience caused by missing teeth or wearing dentures. Dental implants are a modern day miracle that can replace one or all of your missing teeth. Implants are a strong and comfortable alternative.
At Big Smile Dental, we strongly believe in patient education, particularly when it concerns your children.
We will educate you and your child about the causes of tooth decay, the importance of professional examinations and cleanings, proper dental hygiene and diet, fluorides, and the use of dental sealants. We'll show your children fun dental movies and cartoons they can watch and understand.
In addition, we watch for potential orthodontic problems and discuss with you any need for early treatment.
Request an appointment for your child today. Working as a team, we can help them develop healthy habits that will last a lifetime.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Silver and Gold fillings used to be your only choices, especially for back teeth. Today, we can replace silver fillings and create a much more natural look. We can use one of the new strong synthetic resins or porcelain. Since these materials are bonded to the teeth, they are very strong and durable. Silver fillings really darken the smile. Replacing them with tooth colored fillings will make a dramatic difference. They are nearly invisible, they restore teeth to their natural beauty and help you look your best.
