White Fillings

Once upon a time, silver fillings were the standard of care for the majority of dental patients. But now, through years of research and development white fillings are coming into their own and we at Gerlach Family Dentistry have jumped on board. White fillings which are otherwise known as composite fillings have become a cosmetic alternative for the black appearing amalgam restorations. In addition, the improved quality of these fillings has made them the preferred choice for those seeking a white or tooth colored restoration. Their advanced strength has now made them an acceptable choice even in the back teeth where chewing forces are consolidated. Furthermore, these fillings do not contain mercury or metallic residue which makes them an attractive alternative for the patient who wishes to ensure holistic oral health. For more information about these beautiful restorations and to see how you can benefit from this new technology give us a call. Just another way that we give you another reason to smile at Gerlach Family Dentistry. See the visible difference that we offer.

Porcelain Veneers

Do you want that perfect smile but don’t have the time or patience for orthodontics. Porcelain veneers may be the answer for you! While veneers may not be for everyone they can certainly be appealing especially if you have misaligned front teeth that also have cosmetic deficiencies such as unsightly fillings or color discrepancies that keep you from smiling. Veneers can be a quick fix for chipped or broken teeth or those teeth that are rotated or strangely shaped. The color of veneers can be specifically controlled to enhance your smile and to get rid of brown or gray streaks that can’t be eradicated by bleaching. In addition, veneers can give you a smooth, consistent texture to the facial surfaces of your teeth which gives you something else to smile about. Occasionally, an individual will have completed orthodontics only to find that the smile that they desired could not be obtained due to the limits of adult orthodontic treatment. In this case, veneers can also be used to enhance teeth that are now in a better position but still have cosmetic deficiencies. Please call our office to discuss whether veneers are right for you!
