General Dentistry

Dental Fillings: Dental fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of teeth. Structural damage can be caused as a result of tooth decay, wear or trauma. After the removal of a problematic tooth structure, the tooth is restored with composite resin (white filling material) or porcelain. Each filling material has its advantages and disadvantages. We will work with you to determine which material is appropriate.

 

Root Canals: Root canal therapy removes infected pulp tissue within the root chamber of the tooth. The hollowed-out tooth is filled with an antibacterial filling, and the tooth is “capped” with a crown for protection.

Bonding: Bonding is the term used to describe the process of using composite resins to “glue” materials to the surface of a tooth for restorative purposes. Chipped or cracked teeth are typically repaired through bonding. An enamel-like composite material is applied to the surface of a tooth, sculpted into shape, contoured and polished, making the crack or chip invisible.

 

Dental Crowns: Dental crowns can repair extensively decayed or damaged teeth. Dental crowns can be made of zirconia, gold metals, silver metals, porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal. In some cases, conservative dental veneers may replace the need for a dental crown.

 

Dental Bridges: Dental bridges replace missing teeth with artificial replacements (pontic). The pontic is held in place by adjacent crowns that are permanently anchored to surrounding teeth.

 

Dentures: Dentures are used to replace missing teeth or damaged teeth that cannot be otherwise repaired.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Inlays/Onlays: Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from porcelain or composite materials are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a “filling” to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage. Whereas dental fillings are molded into place within the mouth during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are created in a dental laboratory before being fitted and adhesively bonded into place by your dentist.

 

Composite Bonding: Chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth may be repaired or have their appearance corrected using a procedure called composite bonding. A dental composite material with the look of enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or onto the surface of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, contoured and hardened with a high-intensity light. The result is a restoration that blends invisibly with the remainder of the surrounding tooth structure and the rest of your natural teeth to create a healthy, bright smile.

Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is perhaps the most commonly recommended cosmetic dentistry procedure. Teeth are often stained from smoking, food, drink (coffee, tea or red wine) or poor oral hygiene. Bleaching the teeth can enhance the appearance of your smile.

 

Dental Veneers: Composite or porcelain laminates that are adhesively bonded to the surface of a tooth to correct and repair chips and cracks and will improve a worn appearance or severe tooth discoloration. Veneers may also be recommended if you have gaps in your teeth or if you have not had success with teeth whitening.

 

Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that are used as a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry in order to compensate for tooth loss. Often the result is not only an enhanced smile, but also a more youthful appearance, since missing teeth cause the face to collapse, making you look older.

 

Smile Makeover: Smile makeovers involve a comprehensive assessment of your smile esthetics in order to improve its overall appearance. Typically one or more cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival sculpting and teeth whitening, will be required for several teeth in both the upper and lower arches in order to achieve the look you want.

 

Full mouth reconstruction: While consulting with you about a smile makeover to primarily improve the esthetic appearance of your smile, your dentist may discover that there is a need to provide necessary treatment to correct functional problems with your bite, muscles, teeth and bone structure. If you need full mouth reconstruction, the materials available today make it possible for your dentist to provide you with durable, functional and clinically sound treatments that also look natural.

 

Cosmetic dentistry offers many options for people who are unhappy with their smile. If you are one of these people, we encourage you to schedule a consult with us and restore your beautiful smile!

Implants

We are proud to provide our patients with minimally invasive implant placement and restoration under one roof. Our highly trained and experienced clinicans use 3D scans to safely and precisely place implants to guarantee a lifelong restoration option that is beautiful and life-like.

 

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used in dentistry to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Virtually all dental implants placed today are root-form endosseous implants, which means they look like real teeth and are placed within the bone.

 

Dental implants can be used to support a number of dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures.

Tooth brushing is fundamentally important, though it alone will not remove the calculus (also called tartar or dental plaque) that builds up over time. Calculus must be removed to lower your risk of toothaches, cavities, periodontal disease or even the loss of all your teeth. By removing calculus, you can reduce your chances of needing root canals, tooth extractions, dental bridges, crowns and more.

 

It has been scientifically proven that regular professional dental hygiene visits reduce the prevalence of systemic bacteria that lead to heart and vascular disease, reducing risk of heart attacks by 24% and strokes by 13%.

Dental Hygiene

Dental hygiene, also known as oral hygiene, is the process by which preventative dental care is provided to avoid dental emergencies. At the core of dental hygiene is the in-home dental care regimen you perform. Your at-home regimen is supplemented with professional preventative dental care provided by dentists and licensed dental hygienists.

 

While you are responsible for day-to-day dental maintenance, dental hygienists, along with general dentists, family dentists and cosmetic dentists, play an integral role in preventative oral care.

Forni Dental is a certified and Preferred Invisalign Provider. Invisalign is a series of clear, removable teeth aligners that we use as an alternative to traditional metal dental braces. The most obvious advantage of the treatment is cosmetic: the aligners are completely transparent, therefore far more difficult to detect than traditional wire and bracket braces. This makes the method particularly popular among adults who want to straighten their teeth without the look of traditional metal braces, which are commonly worn by children & adolescents. Additionally, the aligners are marketed as being more comfortable than braces. Due to the removable nature of the device, food can be consumed without the encumbrance of metallic braces. Invisalign treatments have been claimed to be quicker than traditional orthodontics. A typical case of braces last 36 - 96 months, while Invisalign takes between 12 – 18 months.

Minimal Sedation

Want to know a secret? Dentistry does not have to be painful—or scary. It’s important to know that a visit to the dentist can be a positive experience, even when treatment is necessary. Millions of Americans, nearly 30%, are afraid of the dentist. They avoid dental care at all costs, even when they are in pain or discomfort. But it no longer has to be that way. Modern dentistry offers safe, effective, and comfortable treatments to anxious and fearful patients.

 

Our doctors are D.O.C.S. (Doctors of Concious Sedation) certified and can provide you with safe minimal sedation dentistry.
