A good number of people suffer from teeth crowding, large spaces between teeth as well as overbites. With DDS Compass Dental, these are problems you will not have to worry about. We use orthodontic treatments such as braces to correct these issues. This form of treatment can be recommended for both teens and adults.
Having a beautiful smile may be even easier than you think. Many people achieve the look they’ve been dreaming of with our simple “bleaching” procedure.
It’s safe, quick, and inexpensive. Just let us know at any appointment if you would like to begin teeth whitening. You can lighten only your upper teeth.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. In addition, implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental implants are changing the way people live! With them, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life.
Most dentistry looks like dentistry. Our goal is to provide dentistry that is undetectable. We replace existing crowns and fillings with restorations that look and feel like your natural teeth.
Where damage to a person’s teeth is extreme, and apparently beyond repair, we can use porcelain or porcelain fused to gold crowns to make the smile appear “as new”. This is an extremely reliable technique for repairing the most severe of dental problems, even permanently replacing missing teeth to offer a complete smile and a functional bite. We are renowned for the quality of our work and the fantastic changes we make for people using this technology. These treatments are used for a long lasting correction of major dental problems. With excellent home care and regular check-ups at the dentist, it is possible for these treatments to last for 20 or more years, which is as close to permanent as dental treatment can get.
A smile is a beautiful thing- so vivacious and full of hope, but also can be easily manipulated. This is simultaneously bad and good news. On the one hand, a smile can become misaligned and create bad formation for incoming adult teeth. But at the same time, this also means that those who start orthodontics earlier will require much less effort and treatment as their teeth will easily be adjusted into proper alignment. Here at Compass Dental, we highly encourage all patients to begin their orthodontic treatment early as a form of preventative care.
You and your doctor may determine that you need a tooth extraction for any number of reasons. Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment.
The removal of a single tooth can lead to problems related to your chewing ability, problems with your jaw joint, and shifting teeth, which can have a major impact on your dental health.
