Be Proactive in Your Preventative Dentistry Habits
At the core of our practice is the dental checkup. Our dental hygienists are highly experienced and take great care removing plaque from the surfaces of your teeth as well as along the gum line. We also chart the depth of gum pockets around your teeth. A depth greater than four millimeters may indicate the presence of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease. At this point, we may be able to offer tips on how you can improve your oral hygiene routine at home in order to reverse the effects of gum disease. Otherwise, we offer periodontal therapy including planing and root scaling. If necessary, we can refer you to a trusted periodontist for additional treatment.
In addition to the all-important dental checkup, we offer comprehensive general and preventative dentistry services to prevent dental problems and maintain a bright and healthy smile. These include:
- Dental Checkups and Cleanings
- Children’s Dentistry
- Fluoride Treatments
- Dental Sealants
- Periodontal Therapy
- Dental Education
- TMJ Therapy
- Sports Mouthguards
If your Syracuse dentist should happen to discover a dental health or oral health problem at one of your checkups, then rest assured we have the restorative service you need. For example, despite your best oral hygiene care at home and our preventive services throughout the year, you may at some point have a cavity. This common problem is today remedied with a tooth-colored filling. Made of composite resin, these types of fillings repair your tooth seamlessly, blend unnoticeably with the color of your other teeth and strengthen the existing tooth structure.
In case of more severe damage, Creative Dental Concepts offers CEREC same day dental crowns. This state-of-the-art technology allows our dentists to design, build and place a dental crown in just one visit. Gone are the days of having to endure the discomfort of a mouth tray full of molding material and the wait for your permanent crown. CEREC includes both a computer that digitizes the design of your crown and a milling unit that accurately carves the crown out of porcelain right here in our Syracuse dental office.
In addition to these more common procedures, we offer other restorative dentistry services to repair damaged teeth or replace missing teeth. These are:
To help you achieve the picture perfect smile you desire we offer cosmetic dentistry services including:
Your Syracuse cosmetic dentist knows that there are shelves full of teething whitening products sold at the supermarkets and big-box stores. But that’s just the problem—the ingredients that whiten your teeth have a shelf life and there’s really no way to know for sure how long the product you’ve purchased has been sitting on the shelf. With dentist-supervised at-home teeth whitening trays, there’s no doubt that you are using full-strength bleaching gel. Moreover, we give you mouth trays that are custom-fitted for your dentition. With these, the whitening solution stays close to your teeth for the most dramatic results.
For a smile that is not only yellowed but also marred by teeth that are chipped, cracked or broken, Dr. Craybas or Dr. Crumb may recommend porcelain veneers. These thin coverings of dental porcelain are cemented to the front of teeth that show when you smile. Each one is carefully designed to create a tooth that looks completely natural. With proper hygiene—after all, there is still a tooth hiding behind each veneer—and a little extra care, porcelain veneers today can last for 10 years or more.
