Dental implants in Dunedin FL
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you will want to get dental implants at our dental office, Ryan P Lepore DMD. Our top-notch dentist, Dr. Ryan Lepore is a highly skilled implant dentist who can provide you with precisely place dental implants in Dunedin FL.
Dental implants have become an extremely popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. When you come to our dental practice wanting to get dental implants in Dunedin FL our dentist will first need to assess the health of your jawbone to make sure it is healthy enough and thick enough to safely undergo the dental implant procedure. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for getting a dental implant, our dentist will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will then be a healing period of several months during which time your jawbone will completely heal and the dental implant root will firmly fuse to the jawbone. Since the dental implant root actually fuses to the jawbone, it is able to be a stable and permanent base for the new porcelain tooth. When the healing period has completed, our dentist will fit you for a porcelain crown which perfectly color-matches the adjacent teeth. The dental crown will then be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root, and your new dental implant will be complete. As long as you take care of your dental implant with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings at our dental practice, there is no reason why your new dental implant will not last for a lifetime.

If you have a cosmetic problem with a tooth, you may want to have it fixed using dental bonding. At our dental practice, Ryan P Lepore DMD, our top-notch dentist, Dr. Lepore can assess your cosmetic dental problem and let you know the best way it should be corrected. At our Dunedin dental office, many patients are able to have their cosmetic tooth problem easily corrected using dental bonding.
When dental bonding is performed, a composite dental material is used. This is usually the same material that is used to provide patients with tooth-colored fillings. It can be made to perfectly color-match your teeth so no one will be able to know that it is even on your teeth. Dental bonding is a very easy and cost-effective way to have a cosmetic improvement made to your smile. If you need to have a larger cosmetic improvement made, it may be better to get porcelain veneers or even porcelain crowns. Our dentist at our Golden Acres dental office will want to assess your individual situation and let you know which the best way is to proceed. Our dentist is very skillful at using dental bonding material, and we know that you will be extremely pleased with the results. This material is often compared to a sculptor’s clay; in order to be able to provide excellent dental bonding results, a dentist needs to be highly skilled in this treatment area, which our dentist clearly is. Dental bonding can be used to correct many different types of cosmetic dental situations including: teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are discolored and cannot be corrected using dental whitening method; teeth that are uneven; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; and many other cosmetic dental problems. The dental bonding material is applied and then dried with a special light. One treatment will generally call for several layers of the dental bonding material to be applied.
