Jackson, Mississippi Practice Offering Teeth Whitening, Porcelain Veneers, and Dental Implants

Creating beautiful smiles that last a lifetime is a big part of what we do at Family Dental Care. Dr. Danny O’Keefe strives to exceed your expectations, and we offer a variety of cosmetic procedures to help you achieve the smile you have always wanted. At our practice near Jackson, Mississippi, we offer teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants, tooth-colored fillings, and a full range of cosmetic treatments for beautiful results.


Teeth Whitening

At our practice in Jackson, Mississippi, we have found teeth whitening to be one of the quickest and easiest methods of brightening a smile that has become discolored. Teeth whitening, also known as bleaching, is a safe method for removing stains and discolorations that can develop from drinking dark liquids such as coffee and wine, as well as from the natural aging process.

Rembrandt® Teeth Whitening Products

We use Rembrandt® teeth whitening products at Family Dental Care. These products have been proven safe and effective and produce outstanding results. We will first examine your teeth and determine which method of teeth whitening will work best to achieve the results you desire. We are often able to lighten your teeth several shades during just one teeth whitening treatment at our office. We also offer take-home teeth whitening kits and toothpastes to help you keep up the fabulous results after your treatment at our office.

Whitening your teeth can take years off of your appearance and give you a rejuvenated appearance with one quick visit to our office. Contact Family Dental Care near Jackson, Mississippi to learn more about teeth whitening and how it can help you achieve a dazzling smile.


Porcelain Veneers

Natural-looking porcelain veneers are an excellent choice for covering teeth that are chipped, discolored, or slightly misaligned. The veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that is custom-made to fit perfectly over the front of a tooth. Because the porcelain is translucent, it lets the color of the existing tooth shine through for a completely natural appearance.

The CEREC® 3D Porcelain Veneers Process

We first prepare the teeth to receive the porcelain veneers by buffing the top layer of enamel. Through the use of CEREC® 3D technology at our practice, we can make and place your porcelain veneers during a single visit to our office. The procedure typically takes two or more visits over several weeks. However, once we have prepared your tooth, we use CEREC® to make a digital impression of it and then craft your veneers in our office. We can then bond them onto your teeth during the same visit.

Instant Orthodontics

If your front teeth have small gaps between them or are slightly crooked, we can use porcelain veneers for instant orthodontics.

Contact our practice in Jackson, Mississippi to learn more about porcelain veneers and schedule an appointment with our dentist to find out whether they are the right option for you.


Dental Implants

Missing teeth can distract from an otherwise beautiful smile and cause other dental problems that can lead to the loss of even more teeth. One of the best options for replacing missing teeth is the placement of dental implants. Dr. O’Keefe has special training in implant dentistry, and he uses several types of implants to fit our patients’ individual needs.

At the beginning of the process, Dr. O’Keefe will examine your mouth to determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. During a subsequent surgical procedure, a titanium post is implanted into the jawbone to serve as an artificial tooth root. Once the jawbone has sufficiently fused to the post, a natural-looking denture, bridge, or crown can be attached to complete your smile.


Dental Crowns

Crowns cover the entire tooth like a cap and are often used to add strength to a tooth that has been damaged due to decay or wear; they are also often used after endodontic (root canal) therapy. We offer several types of crowns at our practice:

· All-porcelain crowns, for a completely natural appearance.
· Porcelain on metal crowns, for more strength than all–porcelain.
· All-metal crowns – gold, silver, or titanium – for the strongest crown available.

During your appointment, we can help you decide which type of crown is best for you.


Dentures

Full or partial dentures are available at Family Dental Care, and new advancements have made them more comfortable and easier to wear than ever before. One type of denture that we offer has many small suction cups that gently grip the oral tissue, making a strong bond without causing irritation. Dental implants can also be used to add stability to partial or full dentures.


Dental Bridges

Like dental implants, bridges help fill the spaces left by missing teeth. Bridges include one or more artificial teeth that can be either permanent or removable. A permanent bridge is bonded to surrounding teeth that have been covered with dental crowns. A removable bridge, also called a partial denture, is attached to surrounding teeth using clips.


Tooth-Colored Fillings

Over time, traditional silver amalgam fillings can crack and leak, which can cause a darkening of the tooth as well as further damage and decay. We can replace your old silver fillings with natural-looking tooth-colored fillings. You can also choose this type of filling if you need a cavity filled.


Dental Bonding

Dental bonding is a quick and cost-effective alternative to porcelain veneers. We can quickly and easily fix minor chips, misalignments, and discolorations with dental bonding. First, we apply a bonding material to the tooth and sculpt it into the desired shape. The material is then hardened with a special light and smoothed and polished for a natural look and feel.
