What You Need to Know About Dental Care

Helping patients means more than just taking care of their teeth; it also means making sure they’re well-informed and fully understand their options when it comes to dentistry. If you have a dental question, feel free to ask Dr. Young during your next appointment, or call our helpful team. Some questions are particularly common, so we’ve listed the answers to some of the most frequently asked ones on this page; read on to learn some important facts that could make a difference for your smile.

What can I do about gapped, stained, and cracked teeth?

Dr. Robert Young can fix multiple smile issues with a single procedure: porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells that are fitted and bonded to your teeth. Veneers correct several kinds of dental flaws all at once! If you have gapped, fractured, chipped, and crooked teeth, then contact Young Dentistry about porcelain veneers.

What options do I have for replacing my missing teeth?

What if I want whiter teeth?

What are the benefits of inlays and onlays?

Inlays and onlays are restorative dentistry options for fixing impaired and diseased teeth. An inlay is a filling inserted into spaces left by cavities or root canals. Onlays partially cover the outside of the tooth, as well as the inside. Porcelain is a popular onlay option. Gold can be used in areas of your mouth not visible to others.
