How are we different?

We take our time to diagnosis every tooth for decay that may lead to bigger and more expensive problem. We have many patients that have come to us over the years thinking that they have no pain therefore no problems. For example;

these teeth did not show any problems on the xrays, yet they had decay that could lead to bigger problems like root canal etc.. both of these patients were told to just “watch” the tooth and wait… for what? Minimal invasive dentistry by Brickell Avenue Dentistry, allows us to just remove the decayed area minimally and fill the tooth.

DENTAL BONDING

Dr. Jaskiel can change the look of non-optimum teeth with a procedure called dental bonding. A resin material that blends in with the color of your teeth is applied to the tooth, then cured with a special light that bonds the material to the tooth. Bonding is often done as a cosmetic procedure to change the look of a tooth or teeth, but it can also be used to fill cavities.

Common reasons for dental bonding:

  • Repair broken, chipped or cracked teeth
  • Make discolored teeth whiter
  • Change the length of a tooth
  • Change the look of misshapen teeth
  • Provide protection for exposed tooth roots
  • Fill a cavity with a tooth-colored material instead of amalgam
  • Close a gap between teeth

Bonding is a great economical alternative to other cosmetic procedures, such as veneers and crowns. They also do not require as much tooth reduction as these other restorations do. However, dental bonding is not as stain resistant as a crown or veneer, nor is it as strong. Dr. Jaskiel can discuss this option with you and answer any questions you may have

INLAYS & ONLAYS

These restorations, made of tooth-colored resin or porcelain, are fitted to a cavity in a tooth. They are often used when a cavity is too big for a regular filling but not big enough to require a crown. They are custom made based on an impression made of your teeth. An inlay lies in the center of the tooth, and an onlay extends to one or more cusps (top peaks) of the tooth.

Inlays and onlays are more aesthetic than metal fillings and are very strong on with you and answer any questions you may have.
