Teeth whitening or sometimes referred to as bleaching is the process of lightening the color of your teeth. This is done with a chemical oxidizing agent, such as hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. Dr. Ken will create a custom mouthpiece tray to ensure the right amount of solution covers the teeth you want whitened. You can see results within a few weeks or longer depending on the strength of chemical.
The root canal is the portion of the pulp cavity inside the root of a tooth; the chamber within the root of the tooth that contains the pulp. Disease and injuries occur in the pulp. Many tooth problems involve infections that spread to the pulp, which is the inner chamber of the tooth containing blood vessels, nerves and other tissues. When the infection becomes worse, it can begin affecting the roots. A traumatic injury to a tooth can also compromise the pulp, leading to similar problems.
A filling is the dental procedure in which a material such as silver amalgam or a composite (white) filling is used to treat a decayed tooth. This material is inserted into the tooth where it then prevents the further spread of decay or repairs any damage.
Bridges and Dentures
Dentures are an artificial substitute for some or all of the natural teeth and adjacent tissues. Bridges are prosthetic replacements of one or more missing teeth cemented or otherwise attached to the abutment teeth or implant replacements.
