Dr. Sam Carroll and the team at Yuma Smiles provide a full range of general and cosmetic dentistry, including the following:
Patients have missing teeth for many reasons. Perhaps the tooth never grew in or maybe it was lost due to trauma or decay. Whatever the cause, a missing tooth can be more than a cosmetic problem, causing jaw erosion, other teeth to shift, and bite issues.
Dr. Sam Carroll can permanently replace missing teeth with dental implants. In this procedure, a metal post is placed in the patient’s jawbone. After it bonds, the dentist attaches a porcelain crown to the post, after which the tooth looks and functions like the patient’s own.
Dental crowns look the same as the patient’s natural teeth. Dr. Sam Carroll might recommend their use for a few reasons:
- To complete the dental implant process.
- To protect teeth that are weakened by trauma, decay, cracks, or breaks.
- After root canal treatment.
- As anchors for dental bridges.
When teeth are discolored or chipped, Dr. Sam Carroll can cover them with porcelain veneers that match the color of the patient’s natural teeth. In addition to looking good, veneers strengthen and protect teeth.
Invisalign clear aligners are a state-of-the-art solution to orthodontic problems. They offer several benefits that make them an excellent choice for many patients, including:
- Invisalign works faster and more precisely than metal braces.
- Invisalign fits every patient’s mouth perfectly.
- Invisalign aligners are extremely comfortable.
- Invisalign aligners are clear and hard to see in patients’ mouths.
- Invisalign is removable for dental care and special occasions.
- Invisalign trays can double as receptacles for tooth-whitening solutions.
