Dental implants are titanium posts that serve as artificial tooth roots for dental prosthetics. Dr. Ribeiro both places dental implants and restores them in-office, and is one of only two dentists in the Clarksville area that utilizes a CT Scan machine during the pre-planning stage.
If you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored, or separated by gaps, porcelain veneers can be placed to mask these cosmetic flaws and create a uniform, beautiful smile. Veneers are wafer-thin shells made from high-quality porcelain that are attached the surfaces of the front teeth.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
After the damaged portion of an extensively decayed tooth has been removed, a dental crown can preserve the remaining structure. Crowns are also used for dental bridges to treat missing teeth. A bridge consists of artificial teeth fixed to the natural teeth on both sides of a gap by dental crowns.
A quick, simple treatment for minor cosmetic flaws such as chips and cracks, dental bonding can prevent the need for more complex and expensive dental care. Once the bonding material has been applied to the tooth, it is molded into shape, hardened, and then polished to ensure a natural appearance.
Inlays and Onlays
If you have teeth that are decayed or otherwise damaged along their cusps, we can restore their strength and appearance with dental inlays and onlays. These dental prosthetics are fabricated in a laboratory based on impressions of the affected teeth; they are then placed and cemented into position.
If you enjoy good oral health but are dissatisfied with your smile, you may be amazed at the results possible through professional teeth whitening. With in-office treatment, we can whiten teeth by eight shades or more in a single appointment - effectively turning back the clock by a decade or more.
Cavities and areas of decay can be treated with tooth-colored fillings. Once placed, tooth-colored fillings offer both health and aesthetic benefits. They blend in with the natural enamel and expand and contract at the same rate as your natural tooth material, eliminating undue pressure and stress.
A variety of dentures exist, from partial to full dentures and implant-supported dentures. All provide a solution for missing teeth. Traditional dentures are held in place with temporary adhesive. Many of our patients choose implant-supported dentures for a more permanent, convenient solution.
Laser Gum Reshaping
IIf you have a "gummy" smile and are dissatisfied with the appearance of your teeth as a result, laser gum reshaping may provide the solution. With this procedure, we can reshape the gum line, elongate the teeth, and create a more attractive, more natural-looking smile.
Orthodontics and Invisalign®
Correcting malocclusion can improve the function and appearance of your smile. We offer metal braces and are also happy to offer Invisalign® treatment, which consists of removable, customized, and transparent trays which function as traditional orthodontic appliances with none of the downsides.
