Metal-free fillings can be placed in one short visit using a bonding material commonly referred to as a “composite.” They are a more conservative restoration than traditional fillings and provide the longest-lasting results.
Additionally, composite fillings are:
- Conservative – Metal-free fillings require very little tooth structure removal.
- Supportive – Composite materials bond to the tooth and strengthen the remaining structure.
- Natural looking – Metal-free fillings provide a beautiful, seamless look since they are color-matched to your current tooth shade. No one will notice your dental work!
Did you know it IS possible to smile with confidence, enjoy all of your favorite meals, and keep your smile looking young?
Implants are artificial tooth roots used to replace missing teeth that have been damaged by decay or lost through extraction or injury. They are an ideal long-term solution to bring back function, contribute to jaw health, and help prevent bone loss in your smile.
Dr. Cochran collaborates with the very best specialists in the area who perform the surgical placement of implants. We also work closely with high-end laboratories to create excellent quality implants.
“Patients are really impressed with the stability and success of this long-term solution,” says Dr. Cochran. “They are so happy to have their full smile and function back again.”
This custom-designed implant crown looks and functions like your own teeth, offering improved maintenance, healthy gums, and an amazing appearance.
What you can expect
When it comes to your health and your teeth, our qualified and experienced dentist in Lakewood, OH, Dr. Cochran, provides comfort and care with state-of-the-art precision. A complete examination of your entire mouth is made using digital x-rays and photos to ensure your implant crown will blend naturally with your existing teeth. Because of their outstanding beauty and natural look, we use beautiful all-porcelain restorations in the creation of our dental implants and crowns.
For denture patients
Dr. Niki Cochran’s dental implants are also a wonderful option for denture wearers to provide that extra stability and functionality needed–no more worrying about the lower denture moving or slipping with eating and chewing! Dental implants are also used to anchor a denture in place, providing greater stability and functionality for you and your smile.
Missing teeth? Dentures at CLE Smiles by Dr. Niki are an affordable, conservative way to cover your missing teeth. Your dentist in Lakewood, OH, Dr. Niki Cochran offers full, partial, and implant-retained dentures at her Lakewood dental practice. She’ll ensure your dentures are a snug fit with your smile.
With our metal-free dentistry, you can restore your smile back to its natural beauty and form with crowns and bridges.
Crowns: Porcelain crowns are “caps” that fit over an existing tooth to restore the tooth’s natural shape and size. Crowns are generally placed when a patient has insufficient tooth structure remaining, whether due to a large cavity, missing filling, or broken tooth. A crown provides a better seal than a filling and can last twice as long. For your peace of mind, we guarantee our Bruxir crowns from any chips or breaks for seven years, provided that you maintain your recommended recall appointments.
Bridges: A bridge is a custom appliance made to replace one or more missing teeth and is a great option for anyone who may not qualify for dental implants. When a lost tooth is replaced with a bridge, the teeth on either side are prepared just like a crown (see above) – and serve as an anchor to hold the new tooth in place.
We understand hearing the term “root canal” may cause you to cringe. Maybe you’ve heard horror stories about this procedure or you’ve had a bad root canal experience in the past. Let our team at CLE Smiles by Dr. Niki tell you our modern technologies and gentle touch allow us to perform root canal therapy – without the pain.
Root canals are here to help you. How? It is the last resort to save your natural tooth. When the nerve of the tooth is severely infected, it needs to be removed and cleansed to bring your natural tooth back to its full function. Or else, the tooth will die and an extraction is needed to remove it.
Talk to Dr. Niki Cochran and she’ll walk you through how you can be comfortable from start to finish.
