WHAT WE DO
Reasons to Smile
Simply put, we have a depth of experience in the procedures that help your teeth look, feel and function better. If your teeth have suffered any type of damage, or if you’re simply not content with the way they look and feel, we have an answer. The smile you’ve always wanted is closer than you think.
The loss of one or more teeth can be a traumatic experience. You may feel self-conscious about your appearance, miss eating your favorite foods, or worry about the potential for bone deterioration. Loss of the entire tooth requires a solution that goes beyond veneers and crowns. For patients who want a permanent remedy, the solution is dental implants.
What are implants?
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. With implants, you can eat virtually anything and smile with confidence knowing that your teeth appear natural and your facial contours will be preserved.
How does the procedure work?
Scans are preformed to digitally capture the structure of your teeth and gums. Once the implants are created, they will act as substitute roots for your new teeth. Our specialists will then surgically place the tiny titanium posts into your jawbone to create a stable foundation for teeth that perfectly complement your smile.
Restore form and function
There are instances in life in which it is wisest to seek out the best and most experienced resources you can find. This is especially true in the area of dental reconstruction. Dr. Boner and Dr. Friedman are true prosthodontics specialists, trained to meet even the most extreme and complex challenges. Whether the result of age, genetics, lifestyle or an accident, we have the expertise to return your teeth to an attractive, healthy and aesthetically pleasing state.
A fresh start
Is it really possible to evolve to a beautiful, improved smile in a single day? At Palm Beach Dental Specialists, the answer is yes. Advances in implant technology and minimally invasive surgery give us the ability to replace failing or missing teeth in one visit. This means you can avoid the inconvenient ‘middle step’ of temporary dentures, and start enjoying a brighter, healthier smile the moment you leave our office. To find out if this process is right for you, contact us today to arrange an initial consultation.
One of the most popular ways of improving the appearance of your smile is through the use of porcelain veneers. Veneers are thin shells of ceramic that bond directly to the front surfaces of your teeth. Because of their simplicity and versatility, they are widely viewed as an ideal choice for dramatically improving your smile.
If you have teeth that are chipped, cracked, discolored or misaligned, bonding is a restorative technique that provides an alternative to veneers. In bonding, a pliable liquid solution is placed on the tooth, which is shaped and polished as it hardens and bonds to your tooth. For patients who want to bring a dramatic improvement to their appearance in the convenience of a single visit, bonding may be the optimum solution.
Inlays and onlays
When more than half of the tooth’s biting surface is damaged, we often recommend an inlay or onlay. These are normally larger or thicker than veneers, and can be made of porcelain, precious or semi-precious metals or a composite. An inlay is similar to a filling, and is used inside the cusp tips of the tooth. An onlay is a more substantial reconstruction, extending out over one or more of the cusps of the tooth.
At Palm Beach dental Specialists, we compliment our dental services with facial procedures that create subtle, natural improvements. Combined with other “one session” improvements such as teeth whitening or bonding, our clients walk away with a more youthful and attractive appearance in just one visit. If you are experiencing jaw pain or headaches, the use of Botox to relax facial muscles may help alleviate the pain.
Dermal fillers are an attractive and affordable alternative to surgical facelifts. Dermal fillers add volume beneath selected areas of the face to create a more natural and youthful look. Proven solutions like Juvederm, Voluma and Belotero are used by millions of people to achieve a more relaxed and smooth facial appearance while still having freedom of expression.
Selectively relaxing certain facial muscles can alleviate a wide range of mild to moderate facial pain, due to headaches, migraines, stress or TMJ. In addition, they can help achieve a marked improvement in appearance, both by reducing the stress from pain, and by smoothing lines around the mouth and other facial areas prone to wrinkles.
