Unlike general oral procedures, Smiling Veterans, Inc. provides more complex dental care and surgeries for military personnel who need additional services from expert periodontists. If teeth and gums are not properly cared for, more severe forms of gum disease can initiate, which can not only result in tooth loss, but may increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and in some preliminary research, Alzheimer’s Disease.
To protect our Veteran’s health and well-being as they have saved and secured ours, Smiling Veterans, Inc. provides confidential, supportive, and informative examinations personalized to a military personnel’s request. Depending on the need, comprehensive oral services are performed based on a thorough dental examination, X-rays, and the most current technologies to ensure each Veteran is provided the care and dedication desperately deserved and owed.
A smile a Veteran approves of instills more confidence and attractiveness, enabling the military member to smile more, produce positive endorphins to reduce stress and anxiety.
DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Periodontal treatment – Better known as deep cleaning, this service removes plaque and tartar deposits on each tooth and its root to address gum disease to support gum tissue health.
Implants – A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Dental implants can be used to support several dental prostheses, including crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures.
Dentures – Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that your appearance does not drastically change. If you have natural teeth lost, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health because dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth. With teeth lose, facial muscles can sag and make you look older. Dentures help fill the appearance of your face and profile.
oral surgery extracts – A surgical dental extraction involves the removal of teeth that are not easily accessible inside the mouth. This may be because they have not erupted through the gum completely or they have been fractured under the gum line.
Alveoloplasty – A common type of dental procedure, Alveoloplasty involves the surgical smoothing and re-contouring of your jawbone ridge. The procedure is most often performed as either after a tooth extraction or as a stand-alone procedure intended to prepare you for dentures.
Crowns (Caps) – A crown is a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant and is typically bonded to the tooth using a dental cement. Crowns can be made from many materials, which are usually fabricated using indirect methods. Crowns are often used to improve the strength or appearance of teeth.
BONE GRAFTING – Bone grafting is a procedure that uses transplanted bone to repair and rebuild diseased or damaged teeth.
Veneers – Veneers are ultra-thin, custom-made porcelain laminates that are bonded directly to the teeth. They are an option for closing gaps or disguising discolored teeth that do not respond well to whitening procedures.
Dental Bridges – Dental bridges are false teeth, which are fused between two porcelain crowns to fill in the area left by a missing tooth. The two crowns holding it in place are attached onto your teeth on each side of the false tooth.
Bonding – Bonding is a process in which an enamel-like dental composite material is applied to a tooth’s surface, sculpted into shape, hardened and polished.
Contouring – Also known as teeth reshaping, teeth contouring corrects crooked teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth or even overlapping teeth.
Gum Lift – A gum lift is a cosmetic dental procedure that raises and sculpts the gum line. The procedure involves reshaping the tissue and/or underlying bones to create the appearance of longer or more symmetrical teeth.
Whitening or Tooth Bleaching – Whitening, or “tooth bleaching” is the most common cosmetic dental procedure. While many whitening options are now available, dentist-supervised treatments remain the recommended procedures for lightening discolored teeth.
