What Are Porcelain Veneers?

Porcelain veneers are simply thin ceramic shells that can be attached to the surface of your teeth for an immediate smile renovation. Porcelain veneers can be as thin as a fingernail, allowing for minimal tooth reduction, and in some cases, requiring no procedural anesthesia. Veneers are individually crafted to cosmetically enhance the teeth using material that mimics the appearance of your natural tooth enamel. Porcelain veneers are incredibly versatile and can be used for many different cosmetic corrections. Due to their life-like form and wide array of functions, porcelain veneers consistently rank first among the most popular cosmetic procedures we offer.

How Can Porcelain Veneers Improve Your Smile?

New porcelain veneers can instantly fix:

  • Chips
  • Cracks
  • Gaps and spacing
  • Misalignment
  • Discoloration and staining

Brookfield Porcelain Veneers Appointments

Over the past 30 years, advancements in dental technologies have made porcelain veneers more natural looking and effective than ever before.

Alleviate Pain with Gentle Root Canal Therapy from Elmbrook Family Dental

176985787Are you tired of tooth pain and sensitivity? If you’re seeking relief from tooth aches and sensitivity to hot and cold foods, Elmbrook Family Dental can help with root canal therapy. Root canal therapy is a dental procedure where your diseased or damaged inner tooth pulp is gently removed and the inside areas (root canals) are disinfected, filled, and sealed. Once root canal therapy is completed, a dental crown can be placed over your the tooth to restore its full functioning. You can make an appointment with the gentle restorative dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental for your root canal therapy procedure today. The highly qualified dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serve patients of all ages throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin, and the surrounding communities.

Do You Need Root Canal Therapy?

Inside each tooth are soft pulp tissues containing blood, nutrients, and nerves from which you experience sensations of hot and cold. This tissue is vulnerable to damage from infection, accidental injury, tooth fracture, or trauma from repeated dental procedures. If your tooth becomes diseased or injured, bacteria can build up inside the pulp, spreading infection and causing pain and sensitivity. You may experience severe, constant, or throbbing pain, as well as prolonged sensitivity to heat and cold, swelling and tenderness in the gums and face, and discoloration. In some limited cases, the pulp may die so gradually that there is little noticeable pain.

Does Root Canal Therapy Hurt?

Not when you choose the gentle dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental. Your root canal therapy will be performed in conjunction with our Single Tooth Anesthesia system. A rubber dam will be placed in your mouth to isolate the infected tooth. The dentist will then make an opening through the natural crown of the tooth to access the root canal and pulp chamber. Creating this access also relieves pressure built up inside the tooth which can immediately decrease any pain. Next, small files are used to clean and disinfect the entire canal space. The canals are also slightly enlarged and shaped to receive a rubber-like filling material called gutta-percha. However, the tooth will not be filled or sealed until completely free of bacteria. You may receive a temporary seal, or the tooth may be left open to drain with an antibiotic to counter any spread of infection. Once the canals are completely clean and filled with gutta-percha, sealer cement is applied. The restored tooth is then protected by a temporary filling or crown until a permanent restoration is placed.

Brookfield Root Canal Therapy Appointments

Successful root canal therapy will not only ease pain, but will also save your natural tooth from extraction. Don’t let tooth pain or discomfort get the best of you. Make your root canal therapy appointment with the trusted family dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. The restorative dentistry experts at Elmbrook Family Dental proudly restore smiles daily throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin, and nearby areas.

Cosmetic Dentist Advice: Is Cosmetic Bonding Right For You?

157247370Let’s face it. We put our teeth through a lot of wear and tear. If you’re like most people, you have more than one concern about your smile. You may not only want a whiter smile, but a straighter, better aligned or more consistently shaped and spaced smile. Fortunately all of these concerns can be addressed by one simple procedure, cosmetic bonding. To see if cosmetic bonding is right for you, just make an appointment with the experienced and attentive dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. The cosmetic dentistry experts at Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serve patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and nearby areas.

The Cosmetic Bonding Procedure

Cosmetic bonding procedures are surprisingly simple. The dentist starts by finding a composite resin shade that matches your teeth. Then the surface of your tooth is roughened and a conditioning liquid is applied. This helps the bonding material adhere to the tooth. The tooth-colored resin is then applied, molded, and smoothed to the desired tooth shape. An ultraviolet light or laser is then used to harden the putty- like resin. After the material is hardened, the dentist will trim, shape and polish it to match the sheen of the tooth surface.

What Problems Can Cosmetic Bonding Fix?

  • Dental bonding is an incredibly versatile cosmetic procedure. Dental bonding can help to correct:
  • Decayed teeth (except cavities)
  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discoloration
  • Gaps and spaces
  • Elongate shortened teeth
  • Irregular shaping
  • An alternative to amalgam fillings
  • Protect tooth roots exposed by receding gums

Cosmetic Bonding Appointments in Brookfield, WI

Although cosmetic bonding is among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures, it may not be able to correct more severe tooth damage or misalignments. To find out if cosmetic bonding is the right solution for you, make an appointment with a trusted team of cosmetic dentists. Make an appointment with the highly qualified cosmetic dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serves patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and surrounding communities.

Are Partial Dentures Right for You?

497239825A “partial” is a term most people use to refer to a partial denture. Dentures are custom-made prosthetic teeth, usually attached to a gum colored plastic plate. If you are missing more than one tooth but you have mostly healthy teeth, getting a custom-fitted partial to replace your missing teeth is a good solution. Partial dentures can be set up in multiple ways. It’s important to replace any missing teeth to prevent the shifting and misalignment of your other teeth and to maintain normal oral functions like eating and speaking clearly. If you need to replace your missing teeth, make an appointment with the experienced and attentive dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. The dentists at Elmbrook Family Dental proudly serve patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and nearby areas.

Types of Partial Dentures

Partial dentures can be either fixed or removable. Removable partial dentures fit in the mouth with metal clasps that hook onto surrounding teeth and require daily maintenance. Fixed partials, also known as bridges, are partials that are anchored to surrounding healthy teeth by a dental bridge. Dental bridges require the surrounding teeth to be shaped and fitted with dental crowns (caps) to allow more room for the bridge and partial denture to fit comfortably in the mouth. Partial dentures can also be attached to a dental implant. Dental implants are tiny titanium rods that replace missing tooth roots and maintain the integrity of the jawbone. Partial dentures attached to dental implants are securely snapped onto the implant but can be easily removed.

Quality Partial Dentures in Brookfield, WI

Although dental implants offer the most benefits, individual medical factors may affect your eligibility to get dental implants. In some cases, removable partial dentures may be the best option. The choice should be made in a consultation with your dentist. Make an appointment with the gentle dentists of Elmbrook Family Dental today. Elmbrook Family Dental currently serves patients throughout Brookfield, WI, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, New Berlin and surrounding communities.

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

480753457When you have teeth missing from your smile, you may find it difficult to live the life you truly want to live. Having a smile that is not complete can be detrimental to the way you feel about yourself, as well as the way you interact with the people around you. Many people consider a smile a first impression, and if that is compromised in a negative way, the effects can be detrimental. Our smiles are what we use to show friendliness to others, communicate, and nourish ourselves, and not having a smile you are proud of can put all of that at risk. Thankfully, our doctors are able to give you the smile you have always wanted by offering dental implants at their Brookfield, WI dental office.

Many people may not know this, but if you have a smile that is not complete, it can put your mouth and your body at risk. When you have teeth missing from your smile, it puts you more at risk for gum disease, TMJ, bone loss, tooth loss, a misaligned bite, can cause the other teeth in your mouth to shift in order to make up for the extra space, and much more. It is very important to rectify the issue as soon as you can. Unlike dentures and partials, dental implants are a permanent solution to your smile woes, allowing you to feel secure at all times.

Drs. Brunner, Taibl,and Tack work closely with an oral surgeon who places your implants. It is important to first have a consultation, as we will have to evaluate the current state of your smile and determine whether or not dental implants are right for you. You will also be able to use that time to bring up any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure, as we want you to feel as comfortable throughout the entire process as possible. Once the implants are placed, there will be a healing period where the implant will fuse with your jaw bone, generating new bone growth. The implant replaces the missing tooth root, allowing for your smile to be as healthy as possible. Once the healing time as passed, our doctors will restore your implant with a crown. The crown exactly resembles a tooth, allowing for your new smile to look as natural as possible. If you would like our doctors to help you restore your smile using dental implants, contact our office today!

Elmbrook Family Dental is committed to providing state-of-the art dental care for you and your family from our Brookfield, WI dental office. We are able to take care of whatever cosmetic, restorative, and preventative dentistry needs you may have. We proudly serve patients from Brookfield, Elm Grove, Milwaukee, Pewaukee, Waukesha, and New Berlin. Call us today to learn more or schedule your next appointment.

I have been looking for a new dentist and wanted a place that would be able to take care of our whole family. I just went with my daughter and we both had a great experience.

We both got great dental care and she keeps asking to go back! I would highly
