Dental sealants are another effective technique used to tackle tooth decay that is offered at West Lovers Dental in Dallas Texas. Usually, the easiest targets of decay are the premolars and molars. Reason being that both are inaccessible when we brush and floss. When we eat, food particles get stuck in the teeth. Brushing and flossing remove all the waste from the smooth teeth surface but cannot reach the far off areas at the back of the teeth structure properly. This inaccessibility makes the unreachable teeth portions like molars and premolars more prone to decay.
Dental sealants, as the name implies, seal the areas where the food particles and other debris find space to get deposited. Dental sealants stick with the teeth firmly and all the depressions are barred off. In short, through dental sealants, teeth enamel is given a shell of protection from decay.
A simple and short procedure is followed to apply dental sealants to the teeth. The procedure begins with thorough cleansing of the teeth that need to be sealed off. After cleansing, the area is with cotton. Now an acid solution is applied to the teeth’s edges and the sealant is put into place. The acid helps bonding the sealant with the teeth. A dental sealant is durable and last for around 10 years if the procedure is properly executed.
Dental sealants should be applied to the premolars and molars of children or young teenagers to save their teeth from decay before time. At West Lovers Dental, we can perform the procedure on both the permanent molars and premolars of children and baby teeth. Both the procedures have their merits. It is, however, advised by our dental office 75209 to get the dental sealant done as soon as possible so that the cavities cannot develop and the teeth are saved from decay.

Porcelain veneers use thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front of your teeth to restore them to their original luster. Porcelain veneers can mask the appearance of chipped or stained teeth, while also straightening teeth that are slightly crooked or misaligned.
Porcelain veneers create a smooth, polished appearance and can be color-matched to your other teeth. They will look natural and feel natural. In addition, porcelain veneers will resist the staining or discoloring that is caused by the consumption of such products as tobacco, tea, coffee, and red wine.

As part of our commitment to amalgam-free dentistry, West Lovers Dental provides high quality porcelain crowns for our patients with severely damaged teeth. A crown is a restorative measure utilised when an insufficient amount of tooth remains to hold a filling.
Prior to the placement of a porcelain crown, we will remove the damaged portion of your tooth and reshape the remaining area to properly receive your new crown. An adhesive is then used to securely fit your crown to your tooth.
The ceramic used for your crown can be matched to your natural tooth color. When the procedure is complete, your new porcelain crown will look and feel like a natural fixture of your teeth.
West Lovers Dental can provide you with quality dental bridges if you are missing one or more teeth. Missing teeth can begin a general weakening of the jaw structure as teeth begin to shift and compensate for the ensuing gap.
Our dental bridges are created to look as natural as possible. We use only the finest ceramic materials to create replacement fixtures that look and feel like real teeth. Your dental bridge will be anchored by two invisible crowns, not a wire as is often the case in many bridge placements. When further supported by our superior dental implants, you can trust in the strength and stability of your new dental bridge while marveling at how well they mirror the natural appearance of the rest of your teeth.
