Questions our patients ask
Veneers are often a great way for people with chipped, stained, discolored, unevenly spaced, or slightly crooked front teeth to obtain a brighter, cleaner, more attractive smile. Porcelain veneers can be made to match the color of your teeth (either with or without whitening), and can enhance your smile in as little as two dental visits.
While veneers are a good choice for many people, you should schedule an appointment with Dr. Lowe to discuss if they are an appropriate treatment in your particular situation.
It used to be that silver fillings were your only option, but with technological advances tooth-colored fillings have become a better alternative. These new fillings last as long as silver fillings, look great (people usually can’t even tell you’ve had a restoration) and have no potential health side effects. (Silver fillings, on the other hand, are made with mercury, which some studies suggest could cause problems over time.)
Talk to Dr. Lowe if you’d like to replace your silver fillings with the more attractive, tooth-colored alternative.
Call Dr. Lowe right away. He’s very concerned with your comfort and your safety, and has the experience to know how to relieve your pain as quickly as possible. Once you are comfortable again, Dr. Lowe will work with you to prevent recurrences of the pain by treating any problem areas in your teeth and/or gums.
Problems with biting or chewing can be caused by many different problems with your teeth and jaws. The solutions can range from adjusting your bite with crowns and fillings to fitting you with custom devices that help prevent bruxism (tooth grinding).
If you’re having a problem with chewing or biting, please make an appointment to come in and see Dr. Lowe. He can diagnose the reasons for your difficulties and provide the dental treatments that will resolve them.
