If someone were to ask what your options are for addressing your misalignment, you may respond with “braces.” Well, the truth is that metal braces are no longer the only option for enjoying a more even and beautiful smile. In fact, we have cosmetic alternatives that don’t have an impact on your appearance the way metal orthodontics would. Let’s look at the cosmetic solutions to misalignment we provide patients in Urbandale, IA.
For a number of reasons, people may find themselves faced with one or more missing teeth. Whether due to advanced gum disease or an accident, these gaps in the smile could lead to serious complications. In order to restore missing teeth for patients in Urbandale, IA, we may suggest a dental bridge. When should you receive one and how do we create these lifelike and durable prosthetics?
We employ cosmetic restorations to address a number of issues with your smile’s appearance. For example, to brighten teeth or reshape damaged/misshapen teeth. But what about misalignment? For our patients in Urbandale, IA, we use lifelike dental veneers to act as an alternative to braces for correcting a smile’s appearance and alignment, often in one visit!
If you chip a tooth, or suffer serious pain due to a cavity, then you need a restoration. Instead of requiring our Urbandale, IA, patients to schedule two to three visits, we use advanced CAD/CAM technology to repair a tooth in one visit. How do we create our single visit dental crowns, and when do we prescribe crowns for our patients?
Did you know children are often just as susceptible to developing sleep disorders as adults? For children with sleep disordered breathing, airway obstruction could lead to poor sleep and serious complications at home and school. In order to help children in Urbandale, IA, your sleep specialist may recommend custom HealthyStart™ oral appliances.
In order to ensure patients of all ages enjoy healthier smiles, we offer residents of Urbandale, IA, an array of preventive, cosmetic, prosthetic, and restorative dental care.

How do we stop headaches and prevent other issues with this facial treatment system?
Often, people avoid the dentist because there is simply little time in their hectic schedules for multiple visits to treat a tooth. In order to prevent busy schedules from standing between people and the care they desperately need, we offer a system that allows us to create and place crowns in one visit. In today’s blog, we’re looking at the E4D system and how this helps patients in Urbandale, IA, enjoy healthier smiles.
We recently took part in a commercial as part of National Children’s Dental Health Month. Like other dental professionals, we want to raise awareness about children’s oral health.

Did you know dental implants do more than just fill the gap in your smile? They help preserve facial structure for patients in Urbandale, IA, and offer a host of other benefits.

Let’s discuss implant dentistry and look at when patients should consider one.
