Adult patients who are ready to restore and rejuvenate their smiles will enjoy cosmetic dentistry procedures available through Dr. Dernick. From teeth whitening to porcelain veneers, Dr. Dernick can give a patient a reason to smile!
Crowns are restorations bonded over natural teeth to protect them or change their appearance. They are made of porcelain and are commonly used in general and cosmetic dentistry.
When a natural tooth is lost, a dental bridge is a wonderful solution. This porcelain restoration is bonded over adjacent teeth to place a false tooth in the gap. It is more permanent than partial dentures.
These thin pieces of porcelain material are fabricated in a way to cover the front of a tooth and change its appearance. These are typically used for strictly cosmetic purposes.
Rejuvenating the smile can be as easy as undergoing a teeth whitening procedure. Bleaching the enamel of the teeth is a safe, affordable, and effective way of achieving a stunning, brilliant smile!
When the dental pulp becomes diseased or infected, patients may need to undergo root canal therapy. This treatment allows patients to save their natural tooth.
While Dr. Dernick does not surgically place dental implants himself, he does refer his patients out to a trusted periodontist for the procedure and can assist patients in restoring their dental implants with custom-made dental crowns.
When patients are diagnosed with sleep apnea, the first line of action is often the use of a CPAP machine. However, it can be uncomfortable and patients often don’t comply with the treatment. Instead, Dr. Dernick offers oral appliances for sleep apnea patients.
Gum Disease Treatment
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a serious condition that requires treatment. Early intervention provides the best success rate for overcoming this disease.
Full or partial dentures are available through Dr. Dernick in the Woodlands area, and allow patients to restore their smile no matter what has happened!
