Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

shutterstock_151587851Having gaps in your smile can make it difficult for you to be confident in your smile. Many people consider a smile a first impression, and when you are not secure, it can leave a damaging effect. Though dentures and partials may have crossed your mind as solutions, you may want something more permanent to your smile woes. At Elmbrook Family Dental, we understand how you feel with wanting a full, beautiful smile, which is why we offer dental implants to our patients.

A dental implant is composed of a titanium screw and a crown. Once it is considered that you are a candidate, the screw will be embedded into your jaw, and will fuse with your natural bone over time. After the post, the tooth-resembling crown is placed on top, making your new smile look natural, beautiful, and vibrant.

Although we do not install the posts ourselves, we work closely with a trusted oral surgeon or periodontist who are more than capable of performing excellent dental surgery. Drs. Brunner, Taibl, or Tack will be able to attach the crown, perfecting your smile. Because dental implants resemble a tooth’s natural structure, you will not have to worry about special techniques you have to do, adhesives, or any other annoying routines. All you will need is wanting a change and our talented staff!

Elmbrook Family Dental is committed to providing state-of-the art dental care for you and your family from our Brookfield, WI dental office. Call us today to learn more or schedule your next appointment.

Give Your Smile a Makeover with Porcelain Veneers!

Dude. She's really excited.When you are insecure about your smile, you may find it difficult have positive overall self-esteem. Many people consider a smile a first impression, and when you are not one hundred percent sure of your smile, it can really affect the way you look at yourself. Though many people are less than proud of their smile for many reasons, they may not think there is much they can do to rectify the situation. Lucky, our capable and experienced doctors offer their patients the smile makeover they need with the help of porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are a wonderful option for those who want to change their smile. Because it is a simple cosmetic procedure, it is becoming one of the most popular ways for people to revolutionize their smile in very little time. The process of porcelain veneers begins with a consultation with Dr. Brunner, Dr. Taibl, or Dr. Tack. There, they will be able to fully assess your smile in its current state, as well as ask you about your long term goals regarding your smile. You will also be able to bring up any questions or concerns you may have with the procedure.

If you are considered to be a candidate for porcelain veneers, we will create a custom set of veneers to match your smile exactly. Your natural tooth is prepared by removing a small bit of enamel, as to make room for your new smile. Once the teeth are prepared, your veneers are applied to your smile, and made permanent with dental resin cement. In as little as two appointments, your smile is able to be transformed from dull to dazzling.

Porcelain veneers are a wonderful opportunity to give back the confidence you may have lost being embarrassed by your smile. You can start to have the confidence to join your friends in a laugh, meet new people, and make that memorable first impression you have always wanted. If you’re interested in how we can help change your smile for the better, make an appointment with our amazing doctors, and we will be more than happy to help!

Our Practice Can Improve Your Smile With Dental Implants

For millions of people who have reservations regarding their smile can prevent them from living the way they want to. Whether it’s the color of your teeth, the misalignment, or the obvious gaps, insecurities about your smile make you cautious to laugh with your friends, smile, or even tell someone hello. A lot of people, though, are less than confident in their smile because they have teeth missing. Though there are a couple ways to handle the issue, dental implants at Elmbrook Family Dental may be a great option!

A consultation with our very experienced doctors is the first step in dental implanting. There, they will be able to get a better look at your smile and speak with you about your long term goals. Once you are considered to be a candidate, the fun begins. A metal implant, looking nearly identical to a screw, is embedded into your jaw bone. This screw-like metal implant is able to give your new teeth security and stability. Then the abutment is added, which is essentially a support system for the metal implant as well as the crown to be placed on top. After that, the tooth-resembling crown is cemented to the abutment, completing your new look!

With a nearly perfect success rate, dental implants will give you back the security may have lost. It can even improve your speech and ability to eat. Another plus with getting dental implants is the fact they look very natural. Smoothly blending in with your natural teeth, implants are a sure way for you to look AS natural as possible. Contact our office to see if you’re a candidate for dental implants, and celebrate the New Year with a new smile!

Use Your Dental Benefits Before 2014

fluoride11Though it may not seem important, taking advantage of your dental insurance before the year ends can save you money in the long run. Because most insurance companies run off of the calendar year, whatever benefits you haven’t used before midnight December 30 is long gone.

Not comparable to your cell phone minutes, your dental insurance benefits don’t roll over to the new year if you have not used them. You work hard for your benefits, and not taking advantage of them before the year is up can possible leave you wasting hundreds of dollars. If you use your benefits before the New Year, you’ll be able to take advantage of your deductible before it resets. It’ll also give you the ability to use up your annual maximums. Another important reason is to take care of any dental woes before they get any worse! Even though it may seem like a small stain or discomfort now, along the line, it can possibly mean a more extensive procedure.

If you are unsure about what your dental benefits may be or when they expire, ask your employer, or use the company handbook as a reference. Either way, being able to use your dental benefits before the year ends is beneficial for your money, and, more importantly, your teeth.

Picture this: It’s Friday night, you’re getting ready for a night on the town. You’re hungry so you decide to have a little snack…and all the sudden CRUNCH! That didn’t feel like a peanut! Your tongue starts to explore… there it is! Your molar broke. Maybe you’re in pain, maybe you aren’t…but one thing is for sure, you want this taken care of soon, BEFORE it starts hurting!

Or maybe this: It’s almost Christmas. You’ve still got a lot of shopping to do! You have a tooth that has been giving you grief on and off but nothing that makes you feel like an urgent care to your dentist is in order. So you ignore it, and figure you’ll call when the holiday is over. Christmas day: you wake up and your mouth is throbbing.
