Dental implants replace any damaged or missing teeth with natural-looking, fully functioning tooth replacements to allow patients to feel comfortable with their smile. Dr. Schultz understands that a missing or damaged tooth can create both aesthetic issues and problems with speaking or chewing, which is why he is proud to offer dental implants at the Schultz Center for Cosmetic Dentistry.

All-on-4™ – Teeth In A Day
If you are seeking a comfortable and long-lasting dental restoration, Dr. Schultz offers All-on-4™ implants to replace all of the teeth in an upper and/or lower arch. This technique utilizes only four implants to securely affix a denture to the gumline instead of the several implants that are traditionally used. After treatment, your newly anchored prosthesis should look, feel, and function as close to your natural teeth as possible. Eliminating the inconveniences of unanchored dentures without the invasiveness of inserting many dental implants, All-on-4™ is capable of achieving a beautiful smile in just one day for results that can ultimately last a lifetime.

Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and bridges are the most common and effective methods used to restore damaged teeth. As a permanent dental prosthetic, crowns cover the entire tooth above the gum line, and can look and feel like a natural tooth. A dental bridge is made of a number of prosthetic teeth that serve as a permanent replacement for missing or damaged teeth, capable of filling in larger gaps.

Full or Partial Dentures
As an alternative to dental implants, Dr. Schultz also offers partial or full dentures. With increasing technological advancements in the dental field, dentures have become more durable and natural-looking, providing patients in need of teeth replacement with a way to restore and improve not only the appearance of their smile, but the ability of the teeth to function normally as well.

Inlays and Onlays
If your teeth have small cracks and fractures that are negatively impacting your appearance, inlays and onlays can restore the beauty of your smile. Using a durable, tooth-colored porcelain material, inlays and onlays are applied to the affected teeth to cover imperfections and seamlessly blend in with your natural teeth. However, the benefits of this treatment are not simply cosmetic. Inlays and onlays can actually strengthen the tooth structure while simultaneously helping to protect the grooves and crevices on the tooth surface against harmful bacteria, cavities, and decay. These treatments can also be much stronger, longer-lasting, and better-fitting alternatives to traditional fillings, enhancing the appearance of your teeth while repairing decay or damage at the same time. Inlays and onlays have even helped some patients avoid a full dental crown – it offers a more conservative solution and preserves as much of the original tooth as possible for patients with mild to moderate damage or decay along the affected tooth.
When a patient is confronted with oral healthcare needs such as periodontal (gum) disease, missing teeth, and other severe dental issues, Dr. Schultz can help restore both form and function to meet your needs. Please contact our office today.
