Porcelain & Composite Veneers
At River Ridge Dental, we can correct and restore smiles with either porcelain or composite dental veneers. These slim, custom-made veneers are covers that adhere directly to the front of the teeth, resulting in a natural and beautiful-looking smile.
Dental veneers could be a good option to correct your smile if you’re experiencing any of the following:
- Cracked or broken teeth
- Stained, discolored, or yellow teeth
- Crooked teeth
- Gaps between teeth
With your input throughout the cosmetic consultation phase, Dr. Zirker or Dr. Crippes can revise your smile before treatment begins, to ensure all your goals are met.
Are you missing any teeth? Regardless of how many you might be missing, or how long you’ve been missing them, River Ridge Dental has options to fill in the gaps left behind. It’s important to us that we provide our patients with the best, most comprehensive care possible all under one roof, so Dr. Zirker and Dr. Crippes specialize in permanent tooth restoration using various dental implants here with us in Cedar Rapids, IA!
With dental implants, you can receive long-lasting and natural-looking results. By using titanium posts implanted into the jawbone where luminous crowns can then be attached, implants are a strong and reliable solution. And the best part is they require no dietary restrictions and are built to last for life. We also offer denture and hybrid options, so that no matter your unique needs, we have you covered:
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Implant-Supported Dentures or Overdentures
- Hybrid Implants.
Every person is different, and everyone’s smile is unique, so we’d love to meet with you at our Cedar Rapids, IA practice to recommend a path forward based on your particular needs.
Cosmetic dental bonding is a popular alternative to porcelain veneers that can also be used as a restorative procedure for teeth that are chipped or discolored. In some cases, bonding can be used to make minor esthetic corrections in place of orthodontics!
The tooth is prepared for dental bonding by lightly etching the surface and applying a bonding liquid. Once the liquid sets, a plastic resin is applied and sculpted into the desired shape by the dentist. Once set, the resin is trimmed, smoothed, and polished to a natural appearance!
The dental bonding procedure can often be completed in a single office visit and can improve the appearance of a tooth significantly. Dental bonding typically lasts three to five years before maintenance or repair.
Opalescence® Teeth Whitening
Stains and discoloration can occur on teeth over time for a number of reasons. There are many common causes, such as eating dark or staining foods, tobacco use, medication, and advanced age.
But stains are no match for Dr. Zirker, Dr. Crippes, and our Opalescence® Teeth Whitening, which can remove these unwanted stains and discoloration rapidly, safely, and effectively! For your convenience, we offer this professional teeth whitening system as a take-home kit. That way, you can restore your smile to its former glory from the comfort of your own home.
You’ll be fitted with custom, clear, flexible trays that fill with the Opalescence gel to be placed on your teeth according to the treatment Dr. Zirker and Dr. Crippes establish for you. Consistency is key to achieving the best results!
Clear Teeth Aligners
River Ridge Dental offers custom clear teeth aligners, also known as smile aligners, for patients who wish to straighten and reposition their smiles. Since they’re removable and nearly invisible, patients tend to prefer this option over traditional orthodontics.
We know firsthand at our Cedar Rapids, IA dentistry that crowded teeth can be a challenge to keep clean, leading to issues such as periodontal or gum disease. That means straightening your teeth is about health in addition to appearance.
