Our Services Departments and services Dental Implants If you have lost a tooth from decay or by accident, there are various options when it comes to replacement. Dentures are the more traditional method, but dental implants offer a more permanent solution to missing teeth. In fact, a dental implant is virtually indistinguishable from your regular teeth and can be performed at our general dentistry office. Tooth Extraction (Wisdom Teeth Removal) Ever been scared out of your wits when it comes to tooth extraction? You’re not alone! The idea of a tooth being pulled is frightening, but the truth is that it hurts much less than you imagine – provided you work with an experienced dentist at Dental Beauty who understands the issues involved and can ensure a seamless tooth extraction process.Tooth extractions are routine dental procedures used to remove decayed, damaged or otherwise problematic teeth. Dentists usually make every effort to preserve natural teeth, although sometimes an extraction is necessary. Although the procedure is performed in a dentist’s or oral surgeon’s office, it is considered surgery. Depending on which teeth are removed, they may be replaced with a dental implant or another oral prosthetic. Dental Cleaning & Consultation Preventative care is a foundation of dentistry. The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist regularly – usually about twice yearly – for full cleanings, examinations, and consultations for potential treatment. Professional dental cleanings help remove built-up plaque that is not removable using conventional brushing and flossing. Often, dentists are also capable of identifying potential problems that patients are not yet able to see or feel. When you maintain regular preventative dental appointments, you can stave off decay and gum disease, as well as identify the beginnings of oral health problems before they become severe. Teeth Whitening When it comes to your smile, there are several possible reasons why it may have lost its sparkle.

Removable Dentures Dentures are removable tooth prosthetics designed to look and function like natural teeth. For thousands of years, some form of denture has been used to fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, although today’s dentures are much more advanced and easier to care for. Most dentures are composed of replacement teeth attached to plastic bases that take on the appearance of the gums. They are used to compensate for one or more missing teeth, and are available as partials and complete sets of teeth. Many dental patients elect dentures for tooth replacement if they are not candidates for dental implants or are otherwise looking for a tooth replacement option that is more affordable and budget-friendly. Provisional Resoration Provisional restorations are often used during complex restorative dental procedures to serve as temporary prosthetic replacements while patients wait for a permanent restoration. Provisional restorations offer patients to try-out the look and feel of the final prosthetic and make any necessary changes before the final fabrication and fitting. Unlike temporary prosthetics of the past, modern provisional restorations are highly functional and aesthetically pleasing. Today’s temporaries are composed of a quality acrylic resin that mimics the look and feel of permanent metal or ceramic restorations. Zirconia Restorations Porcelain fused to metal, or Zirconia restorations have been a standard in restorative dentistry for more than three decades. During that time, dentists around the world have adopted Zirconia crowns and bridges due to the versatility for use, as well as their ability to be matched to surrounding teeth. Zirconia crowns provide an excellent balance between resilience and esthetics. The underlying metal portion of the restorations provides long-lasting durability while the porcelain outer layer delivers a natural-looking appearance. Partial Dentures Like a bridge, partial dentures rest on surrounding teeth to fill in the gaps where one or more teeth are missing. But unlike a bridge, partial dentures are fully removable by the wearer. Partials are affordable alternatives to other types of dental prosthetics and are custom-made to blend in with each patient’s natural teeth. It takes a little time to adapt to new partials, but many people find that they reclaim much of their original function and aesthetics with partial dentures in place. Inlays and Onlays Are you less than completely satisfied with your smile? Do you have a damaged tooth or teeth, a chipped tooth, or a diseased tooth that causes you pain? All of these dental issues can be solved by dental inlays and onlays. Our team of dentists can help you choose the solution that’s best suited to your mouth, lifestyle, and budget. Dentures At Dental Beauty, our customers appreciate cost-effective options for tooth replacement. That’s why we create dentures that Bucks County residents can afford. We provide several types of dentures made to look and feel natural. With the latest technology, you can get dentures that won’t interfere with talking or eating your favorite foods. Crowns & Bridges Crowns and bridges are restorative procedures used to fix damaged or missing teeth. They help improve your smile, restore speech and chewing capabilities, and boost your self-confidence. A crown is ideal when the tooth structure is fractured or damaged, while a bridge is a great tooth replacement option when one or more teeth are missing. These solutions are strong and durable, a factor that makes them a preferred choice for many compared to removable dentures. General Dentistry Taking care of your teeth doesn’t just give you a bright, white smile — good oral health can reduce your chances of developing gum disease, getting cavities, or even losing your teeth! Plus, regular check-ups from general dentists can also catch any issues, such as cancers of the mouth, gingivitis, or tooth damage. When you’re looking for a thorough dental consultation and regular teeth cleaning, the team at Dental Beauty has you and your family covered. Dental Sealants Dental sealants are clear coatings applied to the surfaces of a child’s molars to prevent the development of tooth decay. They work by preventing food and plaque from resting in the grooves and crevices of molars – an area especially susceptible to cavities. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, nearly 1 in 3 U.S. children ages 6 to 12 currently have sealants on their teeth. Dental Mouth Guard Mouth guards protect the teeth, gums, and supporting tissues from damage, injury, and trauma. However, they are not all created equal. The two main types of sports mouth guards are over the counter (OTC) and custom. While OTC guards are helpful on occasion, many individuals need a customized dental mouth guard fitted by a professional to prevent injury effectively. Bite Guards A bite guard is a dental appliance custom-fit to a patient’s teeth. Bite guards serve varying purposes and are often recommended for use in patients of all ages. It is important that bite guards be professionally fit, rather than purchased over the counter, as this ensures maximum comfort and protection during wear. Professional dental guards are usually prepared in a dental lab using an oral impression taken in a dentist’s office. These guards are created uniquely to each patient to prevent discomfort, slippage or inadequate protection. There are many reasons why a dentist would prescribe a mouth guard to a patient. They include: To protect the teeth, tongue and cheeks during sports and high-impact activities To protect the teeth from nighttime grinding or clenching Pinhole Surgery Less invasive than gum graft surgery, pinhole surgery does not require stitches or lengthy recovery time. Instead, dentists specializing in the pinhole procedure simply make a tiny incision above a recessed area and then gently move gum tissue down enough to cover exposed tooth roots. Gum tissue is secured using dental graft material or collagen strips. Patients receive a local anesthetic before pinhole surgery to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Root Canals The cliché, “I’d rather have a root canal” has come to be synonymous with a terrible experience; but despite the hyperbole, a root canal doesn’t have to be more miserable than being stuck in traffic. Advances in dentistry and specialists that use less invasive techniques can make a root canal — well, better than a root canal. We’ll go through the process that the Dental Beauty dentists use, as well as explaining the circumstances that lead to a root canal. Bite Correction Dental Beauty offers custom solutions to fix overbite, crossbite, and open bite without braces. Veneers and Laminates Everyone wants a bright, white smile, but if your teeth are stained, chipped, or uneven, that goal can seem difficult to reach. However, porcelain veneers may be the perfect solution for you! Unlike some kinds of whitening treatments, porcelain veneers never lose their sheen and can be as easy to care for as your natural teeth. If you’re unhappy with your current smile and want a mouth makeover, go with porcelain veneers! Composite Tooth Composite fillings – also known as tooth-colored fillings – are dental restorations designed to be inconspicuous and natural in appearance. They blend well with the teeth and appear more natural than amalgam fillings, which are darker and more easily seen by other people. Composite fillings are made of ceramic and plastic compounds that chemically bond to the teeth. They can be used to fill in decayed areas of the teeth, as well as to help repair chipped or broken teeth. Most dentists use composite restorations to treat the teeth closest to the front of the mouth, as they are more noticeable when patients smile. However, advancements in dental technology and the composition of composite fillings have made it possible for Auburn dentists to also use tooth-colored fillings on molars, which receive more wear than other teeth.
