You’re reading what will be the first of many blogs on this web page! We’re pleased that you have visited our updated website to learn more about our comprehensive dental services. We have worked diligently to provide information throughout this website that we believe will be a great resource for you as you make decisions about selecting a dentist and dental treatments.
At J. Wesley Anderson, Jr., DDS, we offer a multitude of services, from general dentistry to restorative dentistry. We work with leading specialists to provide dental implants and can restore or brighten your smile in one day. Below, we want to list just a few of the services we are proud to offer.
Get Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth, Secure Dentures
Missing teeth don’t just cause gaps in the smile; they destroy the alignment of your remaining teeth. Patients with multiple missing teeth or total tooth loss often have a host of problems. When the teeth fail and need to be extracted, the jawbone and gums change shape. Denture wearers understand this change all too well. Removable dentures slip and slide in the mouth, and the patients often live in constant fear of their dentures flying out when they talk, laugh, or chew.
Our office can craft removable dentures, but we also have a better option that can improve your smile or stabilize your teeth: dental implants. We work with a specialist to place dental implants that can be restored with individual crowns or dentures. Think of the dental implant like the root of your new tooth. It fuses with your jawbone and provides optimal support for your new, permanent teeth.
All-on-4 dental implants are special dental implants that support full arches of permanent teeth. These implants are one of the best solutions for restoring a mouth with total tooth loss. The All-on-4 restorations are designed to leave the upper palate open, giving the patient more tastes and exposure to hot and cold. You can eat the food you want again, and the dental implants preserve the jawbone. Not only that, but patients who go from having missing teeth or removable dentures to having dental implants often look more youthful!
Restore Your Smile in One Dental Visit
Most of us think of dental work as a long, drawn-out process. But that’s far from the case at our office. We have special cosmetic dentistry solutions and restorative dental solutions that can give you results in one day!
One way we can make your smile brighter is with in-office whitening treatments. The whitening gel we use does not cause sensitivity in the tooth or gums and the entire procedure can be completed in about an hour. Once the bleaching gel is evenly distributed on the teeth, we then activate it with a special light. The entire process is simple and comfortable. You sit back in the chair while our team and the whitening treatment does the work. This process has helped countless brides and grooms achieve a beautiful, vibrant smile just in time for their wedding day. We even send you home with special whitening trays and toothpastes to make sure your whitening lasts.
Along with whitening treatments, we can also design and place crowns in one day with our CEREC technology. This special machine allows us to take an impression, design the restoration, and then place the restoration all in one visit. Typical crown placement takes two or three visits, but CEREC allows us to cut that time down to one easy trip to our office. The milling machine is right here in our dental office. The unique CAD/CAM technology allows us to perfectly fit the crown on the prepared tooth, which increases the success rate of the crown!
