Rocky River Dental Services
When you come to our dental office in Rocky River, Dr. Eick and his team of dental hygienists and dental assistants work hard to earn your trust and become your partners in helping you enjoy optimal oral health. What’s important to you is important to us. And we never look at you as simply a set of teeth and gums, but rather a whole person. Dr. Eick will listen to your concerns, evaluate your entire mouth in relation to your oral health as well as your general health, and develop a plan to achieve your smile goals, both short- and long-term. With this in mind, we offer a comprehensive menu of general, restorative and cosmetic dentistry services.
Of course, our first goal is helping you enjoy a healthy and happy smile. Therefore, at regular dental checkups we keep a close watch for any developing problems. And in case we do find a concern, we have the restorative treatment to restore your smile.
You have several choices for tooth replacement, but one of the most lifelike is a dental implant. An implant is a titanium post that is surgically positioned in your jawbone beneath the socket of your missing tooth. With time, this biocompatible post bonds with your bone tissue. The foundation that results from this bond is as strong as that between a natural tooth root and your jawbone. When you’ve healed, Dr. Eick places a custom-crafted crown on top of the post.
Long a reliable option for tooth replacement, dentures are more natural-looking and more comfortable than ever. Dr. Eick will evaluate your needs and recommend the best denture option for you. If you are missing all of the teeth on an arch, then a full set of dentures will restore your complete smile. Alternatively, if you are missing some of your teeth, then Dr. Eick will design a partial denture that will attach and fit among your remaining teeth.
To preserve a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged, Dr. Eick may suggest a lifelike porcelain crown. Also called a dental cap, a crown fully encapsulates a tooth in order to protect it from further damage and help it to endure the pressure of biting and chewing. Crown placement is commonly the final step to restoring a tooth that has had a root canal, which preserves a tooth that has an infection deep inside the pulp chamber and canals.
If the teeth in your smile zone are chipped, cracked, and misaligned or discolored, then you may want to consider porcelain veneers. These wafer thin layers of dental porcelain are adhesively bonded to your teeth to improve the shape, size and color of your teeth. In only two or three appointments, you can have a completely new and beautiful smile.
With time, our teeth become stained and discolored from foods, beverages, tobacco products and even some medications. Fortunately, there is teeth whitening. Dr. Eick relies on the Rembrandt Sapphire system for rapid and effective in-office teeth whitening. On the other hand, for patients who prefer to whiten in the comfort and privacy of home, we also offer a take-home teeth whitening system.
