Your Bella Vista Dentist


Our goal at Corner Dentistry is to educate our patients on all treatment options. Below are the dental services we do regularly. If you’re having any of the issues below, or just need a check up, stop in and see us. Together we can create a beautiful smile!


Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic concerns such as spacing, crowding, discoloration, undesirable tooth shape, or a “gummy” smile affect many people.

The good news is that almost all of these issues can be addressed and treated – usually in a conservative manner.

Crown and Bridge

A crown is a dental prosthesis that is used to restore a tooth that has lost a significant amount of natural structure. This can be due to the tooth fracturing, previous root canal treatment, or a large restoration being present.

A crown is cemented to the tooth and allows better force distribution to prevent future breakage. A technique to replace missing teeth is to fabricate a bridge. In a bridge, a crown is placed on both sides of the missing tooth and connected aka “bridged” together with an esthetic “false” tooth.

Dental Emergencies

Dental emergencies can pop up at any time! If you experience one during office hours, please call us immediately. We will do our best to evaluate the situation prior to seeing you for treatment.

For emergencies after hours, please call the office and leave a message, and we will return your call as soon as possible. The best way to avoid dental emergencies is to make an appointment for an oral exam so we can identify any potential issues prior to them becoming painful.

Dental Hygiene

We recommend that our patients visit us at least twice a year for preventive care. At these appointments we complete a thorough cleaning to remove any plaque and tartar buildup that may have accumulated in those especially hard to reach areas.

By coming in every 6 months, we can closely monitor the oral hygiene for every patient and discuss proper at-home care or ways to improve.

Dentures

For those who have lost a significant amount or all of their teeth, dentures allow patients to restore function and esthetics by replacing these missing structures. Dentures can replace a whole arch or just a few teeth.

Most of the time they are removable, however, they can also be attached to the supporting gums with the use of dental implants. In fact there are so many options to replace teeth that we recommend scheduling a consultation so we can discuss a treatment plan that is best for you.

Endodontic Therapy

Teeth are as vital as any other part of your body. The inside of your tooth contains blood vessels and nerves. Sometimes these vital tissues die due to bacterial invasion from trauma or untreated tooth decay. This can lead to an infection that most commonly presents as a “toothache.”

Besides extracting the tooth, the only way dentists can cure this infection is by removing the necrotic tissue and cleaning out the nerve canals. This is called root canal therapy or endodontic treatment. Popular misconception is that root canals are painful, but usually this is not the case if identified and treated early. Endodontic therapy removes the source of infection and provides relief of the toothache.

Implant Dentistry

Most people will lose a tooth at some point during their life. One of the greatest innovations in dentistry over the past few decades is the implant.

An implant is a bio-compatible titanium screw that is surgically placed into the patient’s bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. About 4-6 months of time is needed for the bone and implant to fully fuse and heal together, and then a custom-fitting crown is made to replace the crown portion of the missing tooth.

Invisalign

Traditional orthodontics requires steel bands and wires that are tightened and spring loaded to generate forces to move teeth. Invisalign is a new technology that relies on clear trays to re-position teeth and achieve a beautiful, functional smile.

This treatment can be utilized for adults and teenagers, and is ideal for cases that require maximum esthetics during treatment. Invisalign is also useful in correcting crowded lower teeth that occurs as we get older.

Dr. Concepcion is a certified provider of this revolutionary technology and looks forward to meeting with you to see if you are the right candidate.

Many times, people are unsure if Invisalign will work for them. Here are a few frequently asked questions with answers from Dr. Katz & Dr. Concepcion.

Invisalign FAQs

Night Guard

Many people grind or clench their teeth, even though they may be unaware of it because it can take place while sleeping. If you have ever woken up with a sore jaw or headaches, this is a sign that you could be grinding or clenching your teeth. This can cause significant damage to your dentition over time.

A night guard is a custom made oral appliance worn at night that is used to prevent these problems from occurring.

Pediatric Dentistry

All parents know the importance of dental health for their children. Our philosophy is that by creating a warm, friendly, and fun dental experience, our young patients will actually look forward to visiting Corner Dentistry.

It is important that we see your child for routine well visits so we can establish a rapport with them. Would you be comfortable having your tooth fixed by a stranger or by someone you are familiar with? Make an appointment for your child today!

Periodontal Therapy

The secret to keeping your teeth for your entire life is by taking good care of your gum tissue. This requires basic home care and regular visits to the dentist for cleanings and treatment of your gums (periodontal therapy) if required.

Unfortunately, some people develop periodontitis, which is the progressive loss of the tooth’s supporting tissues (gums and surrounding bone). This can lead to tooth loss over time. Periodontal therapy, in its simplest form, is the deep cleaning of these tissues performed under local anesthesia to remove excess tartar deposits and plaque. This will reduce inflammation and facilitate the regeneration of healthy gums. Although periodontal disease isn’t curable, it is progressive. The earlier it is identified and treated, the better chance of success and maintenance!

Teeth Whitening

Discoloration of teeth naturally occurs over time and with age. Darker liquids such as coffee, tea, or red wine, and tobacco usage can also cause staining. Teeth are porous and have natural concavities and grooves, allowing stains and deposits to form easily.

Our office offers a teeth whitening system that can be done at home and on your own schedule. We take impressions of your upper and lower teeth and fabricate bleaching trays. This custom fit allows the whitening gel to go directly onto the teeth that you want to bleach to produce a beautiful smile.

TMJ Pain

The Temporomandibular Joint is the bilateral joint that connects the jaw to the skull. When the bite is not even on both sides of the mouth, this can cause pain in the joint and surrounding muscles.

Sometimes when a person opens and closes their mouth, they may hear a clicking noise. The clicking noise is caused by the friction of upper and lower parts of the joint rubbing together. Clicking can be normal if it painless; however, it can also induce pain. We recommend scheduling an appointment if you have any signs or symptoms of TMJ pain for a proper evaluation.

Veneers

In simplest terms, a veneer is a porcelain or ceramic “shell” that is placed over existing teeth to improve their shape, color, and overall esthetic. Veneers are less invasive than traditional crowns because less tooth structure has to be removed. If you are unhappy with your smile, you may be a candidate for veneer treatment.
