A Range of Options for a Beautiful Smile

Smile Makeovers Dentist Sioux City IAWe want you to feel good, and part of feeling good is looking good. A beautiful smile is a big part of your appearance, and we have cosmetic makeovers that are less time-consuming and more affordable than ever before! We start with the best preventive care and move forward with restorations such as veneers, crowns, whitening, and bonding for a great look that lets you smile with confidence.


A ‘Smile Makeover’ in as Few as Two Visits!

Dental Veneers Dentist Sioux City IAMaybe you have avoided having your teeth straightened because of the commitment to years of orthodontics treatment. But with porcelain veneers, you can have a new smile in as few as two visits! They correct unsightly gaps, misshapen teeth, and deep discoloration. Our veneers are thin, durable pieces of advanced dental ceramic. They bond to your natural teeth and create an even, uniform smile. It’s like instant orthodontics! Veneers can also can be used on chipped or worn-down teeth. Veneers are made to match the color of your other teeth, giving a very natural look to your smile. We also feature DURAthin™ veneers. These are contact-lens thin and super translucent. Since DURAthins are so thin, little to no tooth reduction is required. Often times you won’t even need a shot!


Permanent Replacements for Missing Teeth

Dental Implants Sioux City IADental implants are a solution to recapture a full and beautiful smile. The implant is placed under the gums, making the crown appear as if it comes up through the gums like a natural tooth. Implants can replace as many teeth as are missing, and will provide the stability and full functionality required for proper eating. Even those with all their teeth missing will benefit from implants, as their dentures can be secured properly and permanently. First, an oral surgeon inserts the titanium post, and then Dr. Kava creates and places the implant restoration.


Overdentures Eliminate Slipping Dentures

You may have had enough of problems from your dentures, as they slip, tilt, or wander. If you want the stability of implants, we have a solution that might work for you. Overdentures anchor dentures or a bridge with implants that remove all the problems of movement. Our dental team will do a great job to give you the correct fit. Your confidence will soar and give you more reasons to smile, so ask us how we can help you with overdentures today!

Metal-Free Fillings

White Dental Fillings Sioux City IAThere is a lot of controversy regarding silver fillings. We not only prefer, but recommend treatment with composite material for fillings for a variety of reasons. First, the materials that go into a white filling much more aesthetically pleasing and require only minimal tooth structure be removed to place them. They look like your natural teeth and are bonded with special care to each tooth and are not as sensitive as silver fillings.

Silver fillings, on the other hand, require more tooth structure to be removed and are more sensitive to hot and cold. They also shrink and expand over time and are more likely to crack and leak over time.

Remember that composite or resin fillings look great, bond to your teeth, and have no health or environmental contraindications. There is a cost difference, but you are treating your teeth with the latest and greatest materials available. If your current insurance plan does not cover composite restorations on the back teeth, next time you are looking for a dental insurance plan look for one that does. They are becoming more common.


Full Mouth Rehabilitation

If you have been diagnosed with bite problems, bruxism (tooth grinding), TMJ, periodontal problems, or misshapen, crooked, or missing teeth, you no longer have to live like that. Dr. Kava will thoroughly discuss your symptoms, concerns, and goals. He will make his assessment after reviewing digital X-rays, imprints, and photos of your mouth, and present all treatment options so you will achieve your healthiest smile, free from symptoms and pain.
