Dental crowns are valuable restorations used to strengthen or augment decayed or damaged teeth, like those that are chipped, cracked, or fractured. They’re also ideal for improving the appearance of an aesthetically displeasing tooth, such as when one is discolored, misshapen, or crooked. And they even serve essential roles as components of dental bridges and implants. Here at Riverdale Dental Associates, you can depend on dental crowns for all your needs.
The materials used to make a crown are either porcelain, porcelain baked to metal, or ceramic. The type that is appropriate for your situation will be based largely on the location of the tooth, as well as your preferences. Porcelain or ceramic are perfect for any tooth that shows when you smile, speak, or laugh. They blend in seamlessly with the color of your teeth, so it doesn’t even look like you have a crown at all. Porcelain baked to metal is typically suitable for back teeth, which take the majority of the force when you chew food. Metal provides additional strength to rely on. Our Verandah best dentist will have a complete crown placed in just two visits. The first session is when you come in to have impressions of the tooth taken, which are then given to the dental lab. They make the crown and return it to our office. You’ll then return to have our Verandah best dentist fit the crown and cement it to the tooth for long term use. Exactly how much time you can expect to get from your crown depends on several factors, but what is indisputable is the way they keep your tooth fully functional and looking good.
Come in and see our Verandah best dentist to get a crown placed. Contact our office right now and we will set up a time for your appointment.
Get straighter teeth with braces, and take your choice here at Riverdale Dental Associates. We feature both traditional metal braces and Invisalign, the system of clear aligners that offers a viable alternative to old-fashioned braces. They both do an outstanding job, so it will be up to you as to which match up with your individual concerns and preferences best.
Invisalign breaks with all of the details that most people think about when they consider orthodontic care. And that can be a very good thing. Invisalign consists of more than one set of braces. In fact, during the course of your treatment, you will wear a total of between 18 and 30 on average. Each serves a tenure of about two weeks before being discarded. This is an efficient process because each aligner is made from digital photos and designed with 3D computer software. Our own in-house machinery is how they are made. It is this precision that leads to our Verandah braces giving you the results you want in less time than you would imagine; usually about 11 months give or take. There are still things to speak in favor of when it comes to traditional metal. Our Verandah braces can be adjusted and are sometimes the better option for particularly challenging cases of teeth misalignment. And when you compare today’s version of them to the ones of years back, you discover that your braces are lightweight and stylish, allowing you to customize your look and express yourself. Invisalign are invisible, so if you’re self-conscious about wearing braces at all, they are the ideal option.
Which of our Verandah braces are best suited to you? There’s only one way to know for sure. Contact our office and set up an appointment to come in for a consultation. Do so now.

At Riverdale Dental Associates, our Verandah dental office performs fillings for patients who need them. Filings are done when there are cavities present within the mouth, and which cause a hole that needs to be filled up. Fillings are usually made from composite materials, and once we apply them to the hole the cavity makes, the pain should lessen.
Dr. Correa is a graduate of the University of Florida and speaks English, Portuguese and Spanish. Born and raised in Brazil, he earned a dental degree there before moving to America. He started Riverdale Dental Associates 8 years ago and has enjoyed giving patients the best in quality dental care and will continue to do so for many years to come. When coming in for your fillings at our Verandah dental office, we want you to be relaxed and happy. If there’s anything whatsoever that you need before your appointment, don’t hesitate to ask us. Fillings are quick and easy and done right in our offices in a timely manner. They help to fill the hole that cavities make in teeth, and ease the pain the cavity is causing. Symptoms usually include sensitivity to hot and cold, pain, swelling and redness.
You don’t have to settle for a smile that is marred by problems like chips, cracks, discoloration, misshapen teeth, wide gaps between teeth, or other issues that cause you to feel less than positive about how they look. Here at Riverdale Dental Associates, our Verandah veneers cover those imperfect teeth, affording you a simple, safe, painless solution. Get the smile you’ve always wanted.
If each of your teeth had to be worked on separately, with each individual concern being tended to, it would take quite a long time and even more money to have it all done. And in the end, you could have been enjoying the benefits of our Verandah veneers all along, for far less cost. What are dental veneers? They’re super slim porcelain shells that are placed over the fronts of those teeth that you are not satisfied with. Porcelain is the favored material, because its color matches that of your teeth, it’s durable and strong, and it resists stains, such as those you might get from tobacco use, from drinking tea or coffee, eating berries or curry, or any of the other common everyday habits that stain teeth and tooth-like materials. The process of getting our Verandah veneers begins with a consultation and exam. Impressions are taken and delivered to the dental lab, where they are used as the models for making your new veneers. A fitting will follow. After any necessary adjustments, our cosmetic dentist files a thin layer off the teeth getting veneers, and then bonds them permanently. The filing ensures that all your teeth will be even, and look uniform.
There are few things that can boost your self-esteem and confidence quite like an improvement to how your teeth look. Why wait? Contact our office right now and let us book you for a convenient appointment to get started on a brand new smile.

If you’re missing teeth and you don’t want to deal with an invasive surgical procedure to restore your smile, you should explore the possibility of getting dentures. Dentures are a great alternative if you don’t meet the requirements for implants. To find out if dentures are a good fit for you, you should schedule a consultation at a Verandah dental office.
If you’re unable to get implants for whatever reason, you should see an experienced dentist at a Verandah dental office like Riverdale Dental Associates to discuss the possibility of getting dentures. Dentures are removable appliances that contain artificial teeth that you wear in your mouth as a replacement for your missing teeth. If you have lost the majority of your teeth due to tooth decay, gum disease or an injury, you’ll need to replace them for both cosmetic and for health reasons. When you lose teeth, it causes your facial muscles to sag because there is no longer anything there to keep its structure in place. Dentures can correct this problem because they fill out the appearance of your face and therefore, will make you look better. Dentures will also help you to regain your ability to do important daily activities such as eating, speaking ang smiling, that you lost the ability to do when you lost your teeth. Even though dentures can provide you with many great benefits, they’re not right for everyone. They have some disadvantages that you should be aware of before making the decision to invest in them. Unlike implants, dentures require special maintenance and care. You’ll need to learn about proper denture care and maintenance and you have to be willing to properly clean and maintain them on a daily basis. Dentures can feel awkward at first and they take some time to get used to wearing. It’s very common for dentures to slip and slide when you eat and speak. For this reason, they might not feel natural until you wear them for a while.
To find out more about dentures, contact our Verandah dental office. We’ll gladly schedule an appointment for you.
Teeth cleaning in Verandah
Getting our teeth cleaning in Verandah is essential for both your teeth and your gums, and can help prevent the need for periodontal cleanings, which are restored to when the effects of advanced gum disease make it the most effective method. Here at Riverdale Dental Associates, we’re committed to proactive dental and periodontal care.
Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease. Symptoms tend to be mild, such as irritation and redness of the gums. You may not even realize that there is any reason to be concerned. And the good news is that with our teeth cleaning in Verandah, the signs of gingivitis can typically be reversed, and the progress of gum disease halted entirely. Sometimes a second cleaning is necessary for more stubborn cases. The bad news is that if you don’t come in for twice-yearly dental cleanings (which is another way of saying teeth cleanings), gingivitis can develop into periodontitis, the advanced stage. Here, the symptoms become highly noticeable, and more concerning. Among them are receding gums, bleeding when you brush, and persistent bad breath. More serious is the potential erosion of gum and bone tissue, which can then cause your teeth to become loose. In the worst case, you could end up losing teeth. It is when gum disease is advanced that our teeth cleaning in Verandah is no longer effective. Instead, you will require a periodontal cleaning, which is similar but goes much deeper. In fact, it goes down to the roots to get at the offending plaque and tartar. With that, your gums can begin to heal. It is vital not to ignore the symptoms you have. The more quickly you act, the more likely you will have a successful result.
Make an appointment with us right now for a teeth cleaning in Verandah. Give yourself every opportunity to prevent advanced gum disease.
