If you have any dental decay or damage, you can trust the team at Bionica Dental Wellness to repair your smile in the way that’s best not only for your dental health but the rest of your body as well. Our goal is to preserve as much of your natural smile as possible, and we only use lifelike, non-toxic materials that can be trusted to last for decades. We can even replace any old metal-fillings you might have with a more biocompatible version, improving your smile’s health and appearance at the same time. To learn more about your restorative options, give us a call today.
Traditional fillings are made of a gray metallic material called amalgam, and while they may have been the go-to treatment for fixing cavities for decades, concerns have grown over recent years due to the fact that they contain mercury. If you’re looking to replace your defective metal fillings with a more aesthetic and biocompatible alternative, we can use the patented Safe Mercury Amalgam Removal Technique (SMART) that’s specifically designed to keep you protected from amalgam particulates and mercury vapor. In just one appointment, you can finally say “Goodbye!” to those pesky gray marks in your smile.
While we make every effort to restore teeth conservatively and preserve as much tooth structure as possible, sometimes teeth need more. In the event of a broken tooth or one with extensive amounts of decay, a crown may be needed. Using our single-visit technology, we can fabricate an all-ceramic, metal-free crown that will support the tooth and reinforce its strength.
You can think of a bridge as multiple crowns connected together to replace a missing tooth. When an implant is not possible, a bridge is a viable solution for replacing a missing tooth.
Not all tooth-colored fillings are the same. Bionica Dental Wellness has selected the highest quality, BPA-free composite resin materials to use. This tooth-colored filling material mimics the biology of teeth and provides an esthetic repair. The malleable nature of the resin also allows us to preserve more tooth structure while repairing it, which prolongs the lifespan of the tooth.
Biomimetic restorations (inlays and onlays) are designed to literally mimic the natural structure of a tooth in the most conservative way possible. This lends itself to a more realistic appearance as well as better oral health and function. Thanks to our in-house CEREC technology, patients can get these kinds of restorations designed and placed in just one visit, making it more convenient than ever to repair their teeth.
Custom-made full or partial dentures are a good option if you are missing several or all of your teeth but implants are not possible. Dr. Holinbeck can help you reclaim your bite and your confidence with a metal-free prosthesis that looks as good and is light-weight. Adding implants to this will provide an even more secure fit with improved function.
While we prioritize saving teeth when possible, sometimes a tooth has suffered too much damage and needs to be removed. When this is the case, Dr. Holinbeck has received training to remove teeth with the least trauma possible. She also takes time to debride the extraction site in order to get rid of infected tissue and periodontal ligament (PDL). She will then flush the site with ozone/oxygen in order to kill pathogens and decrease post-op complications. Lastly, our team is always happy to answer questions before and after the procedure, because we know how nerve-wracking the process can feel.
Dental implants hold a truly special place in dentistry because they are the only treatment that’s able to replace an entire missing tooth, fully replicating it aesthetically and functionally. They restore both the root and crown of a tooth at the same time, basically recreating every part of natural dental structure. Here, patients can have their new implanted teeth made from 100% zirconia, a strong and extremely durable ceramic that looks natural and can be trusted to last for decades to come.
