All Porcelain Crowns have made all the difference in cosmetic dentistry. Traditionally, you had to have a metal “coping” placed directly against your tooth, with a layer of opaque and then a layer of porcelain placed on top of the metal to make it look toothlike. With the improvement in the strength of porcelain, we no longer need the metal in the vast majority of cases. The elimination of the metal allows light to pass through the porcelain just as it does a natural tooth.
Replacing missing teeth can be accomplished in several ways: Implants, Fixed Bridgework, Removable Bridgework (Partials), and Full Dentures. Please see the Implant section for more information on this terrific alternative. Fixed bridgework attaches to the teeth in front of and behind the missing tooth/teeth. Those teeth are prepared for crowns, a bridge is made and then it is cemented into place.

What makes a smile so important? Our family and friends ask us for one every time we pose for a photograph. We tell those we care about to do it whenever we see them looking sad. Smiles are magical, motivating and extremely persuasive. A smile is a key to practically any door. How beautiful is your smile? A great smile can make a person’s confidence level and self-esteem soar.
Dental Implants have forever changed the options you have for replacing missing teeth. Whether you’re missing just a few teeth, or all of your teeth, implants can help restore the natural appearance and function you used to enjoy. You may find that there are other things you miss like your natural smile or your ability to chew apples, crackers and other food you desire.
Research has shown many links between gum (periodontal) disease and our overall health. Common sense should tell us that infections, whether in our arms, legs, or mouth, are not healthy for our body. When you have gum infection (which many times has no symptoms) you have bacteria under your gumline depositing their toxins into your gum tissue.
The fear and the pain associated with losing teeth is a real concern for most people. We understand that. That’s why we, at Tavares Dental Excellence, are strong advocates of techniques that minimize loss of valuable tooth structure.
We believe in conserving as much of your natural tooth as possible, while still giving you the smile you want. With the technology available today, you can have the smile you’ve always dreamed of in as little as two visits. This transformation can be achieved with veneers. Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain that are sculpted to bond to the front of your teeth. They can change the color, shape, and alignment of your teeth.

" Dear Dr. Reinertsen and Staff, There are truly no words to express my sincere gratitude to you all for giving me a new beginning. It has been said by some that when you hit the big 50 that life is on the downside, but you have given me such a lift that that no longer is true for me! Let me begin by first expressing a heartfelt apology to you all. You see I doubted your word. When I first saw all the lumineer information in your office, I was intrigued and thought wow they are amazing before and after photos. They look beautiful….I wonder. When I asked about it, I thought, “Oh yeah, there is no pain because it isn’t his mouth, and my teeth won’t really look that good. You know the old saying NO Pain No Gain, that is what I believe, he is lying, they are all lying…” I have always had extreme pain and dreaded going to the dentist before, so I thought you all would be no different. Well, I am not embarrassed to admit I was wrong… Dead wrong!!!!! I have had outrageous gain and NO pain!! "
