• Cosmetic Dentistry

    Innovations in dental technology have made a trip to the dentist’s office an entirely new experience for millions of Americans – thanks to a relatively new field called cosmetic dentistry.

    The main goal of traditional dentistry is to keep your teeth healthy and free of disease and decay; cosmetic dentistry takes oral hygiene to a whole new level, with a concentration on enhancing the overall look of your teeth. With cosmetic dentistry, even getting a cavity filled can be an opportunity to improve your smile.

    The smile is our window to the world, and it’s the first thing that makes an impression on people we meet. So it’s no wonder that more and more people are turning to cosmetic dentistry for corrective procedures and aesthetic enhancement.

    So whether you want to fix a chipped tooth or get a complete smile makeover, we can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please contact us today.

  • Crowns

    Depending on the type of treatment you have received for your dental problem, it might be necessary to:

    • Have your tooth restored to its original size and shape
    • Supply additional physical support for the treated tooth
    • Get a complete “makeover” on the affected tooth

    For cases like these, a crown is the most logical option.

    While inlays and outlays cover the chewing surface of the tooth and fillings fill in the empty interior space of the tooth, crowns completely cover every visible part of the tooth – which is why they are sometimes referred to as “caps.” A part of your tooth remains but is essentially “rebuilt” to resemble the tooth at its exterior best.

    While porcelain crowns certainly can improve the look of a tooth or multiple teeth, it is recommended only in conjunction with prior repair of the tooth – not simply for cosmetic purposes.

  • Dentures

    Whether from disease, malnutrition or genetic disorders, sometimes it is necessary for us to extract all of a patient’s lower or upper teeth. While this can be devastating, dentures can provide a second chance at a beautiful smile.

    Having complete dentures helps with chewing as well as supports one’s facial structure and improves speech. With immediate dentures, you can have a full set of teeth while you are waiting for your gums to heal and your bone to realign after having teeth removed. This can take up to six months, so immediate dentures are a great alternative during that time.

    Sometimes, complete dentures are not necessary. Partial dentures can replace a string of missing teeth, and are secured to your remaining teeth with clasps.

    No matter which kind of dentures you choose, you can be assured to receive natural-looking dentures that match your facial structure and desired tooth color.

  • Dental Implants

    If you have lost or missing teeth you may wish to consider a dental implant from Chou & Chou.

    Chou & Chou is a full service dentist providing dental implant services. Whether your missing tooth is the result of periodontitis, tooth decay or an injury, Chou & Chou can help restore your smile with a beautiful new dental implant that looks and functions just like a real tooth.

    A dental implant offers a single and permanent solution to a lost tooth. The implant is integrated into your jaw with a small titanium screw and over the course of several months naturally bonds with your mouth. This procedure is relatively simple and is effective in almost all cases, so there’s no need to put off restoring that great smile.

    As with all our dental services, you’ll be treated with the nurturing care and professionalism that embodies Chou & Chou’s practice. We’ll make sure that you’re kept comfortable and informed throughout the implant process and will always be available to address any questions or concerns.

  • Root Canal

    Generally caused by tooth decay or shock, pulp or nerve tissue damage can be an excruciating experience, with symptoms including pain while chewing, sensitivity and swelling. If left untreated, pulp damage can lead to abscesses, or pus-filled infections, and eventually to tooth loss.

    Endodontics, or root canal therapy, is the branch of dentistry that deals with treating dental pulp damage and is the best way to directly address the pain and save the tooth. During a root canal procedure, infected nerve tissue is cleaned out and replaced with filler to prevent further infection. With proper anesthesia, root canal therapy can be a pain free process.

    At Chou & Chou, we will accurately diagnose the need for root canal therapy and if necessary, refer you to the proper specialist, who will take every measure to ensure our patients’ maximum comfort throughout the procedure. If you are experiencing tooth pain, sensitivity or swelling, it is important to act fast, not only to relieve your pain, but also to save the tooth from complete decay.

  • Tooth Extraction

    At Chou & Chou, we always make every attempt to treat your teeth and remedy any dental malady.

    Unfortunately, in some cases damage to teeth is in so advanced a stage that is may be necessary to extract the tooth in order to maintain dental health.

    If a tooth is broken, cracked or extensively decayed it may be necessary to remove it. Likewise, a tooth that is associated with advanced stages of periodontal disease should be removed, as well as teeth that are poorly positioned or non-functional.

    Whatever the cause, you can rest assured that Chou & Chou will carefully explore and inform you to any other options before making the decision to remove a tooth. Should tooth extraction become necessary, you are assured the nurturing care that comes with any Chou & Chou procedure. We understand that the process of having a tooth extracted can be daunting and make every attempt to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.
