Success Client Story

Deanna visited us because she had a cracked tooth that was causing pain and discomfort. Using our dental technology, our team was able to repair her tooth to full function in 3 days. Her pain was erased that day, and she was fitted for a temporary, tooth colored crown until her permanent crown was placed just 2 days later. Our amazing scanning and milling technology lets us customize the color and fit of her crown to match her current natural teeth. Now she’s pain-free and smiling again!

Don’t just take it from us, hear what the patient has to say:

“I got a crown procedure done and it was easier than anticipated plus everyone in the office from front desk to team in the back to Dr. Rañola is absolutely awesome” – Deanna Meyer

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers provide an artist’s touch to your smile. Custom-crafted, these ultra-thin porcelain creations work in magical ways. Regardless of your vision for your smile, chances are veneers offer an answer. When today’s modern materials meet our passion for cosmetic excellence, you’ll be amazed at what you see smiling back at you in the mirror.

At Ranieu Family Dental, watching patients discover a brilliant new smile highlights our days. Veneers can transform a smile dramatically, sometimes referred to as “instant orthodontics.” A set of veneers can correct chips, stains, and even deeply discolored teeth. But they can also alter the length and size of teeth, or help teeth that seem rotated suddenly appear straight. While it sounds dramatic, only the stunning visual outcome is surprising. Veneers provide a highly conservative approach to esthetic smile makeovers.

Veneers display the ultimate in dental art and science, handcrafted and customized to fit your smile. Like a contact lens, these paper-thin pieces of porcelain bond to the outside of your natural teeth. But don’t be fooled by the thin characteristics of this material. Many unique features can be incorporated into the ceramics, replicating any look you want to create.

While veneers provide a conservative way to repair bad teeth, the steps behind the process require a high level of training to produce accurately. So what’s involved in bringing a smile like this to life?

Good Planning Paves The Way

Careful planning of your veneers is vital to a successful outcome. Models, photographs, and digital x-rays allow you and Dr. Ranola to create a perfect blueprint to direct your case from start to finish. Like all successful projects, this planning can’t be compromised. She will consider your input and incorporate your desires into your veneer case, from color to shape and a number of other factors.

The Next Steps

Once Dr. Ranola plans your case, usually two appointments leave you with a stunning new smile. At the first visit, the teeth are gently prepared to allow space for the ultra-thin porcelain to be crafted over by a master lab technician. Dr. Ranola provides all the information to a specialized lab that’s needed to create a masterpiece.

Dr. Ranola also produce acrylic temporary restorations that mimic the veneers, worn for about three weeks. These temporaries provide a preview of the general appearance of your new smile and allow further input regarding the appearance of your upcoming smile.

Delivering The Magic

After hours of custom craftwork in the lab, you’ll return for a second appointment. Dr. Ranola will try in each veneer and evaluate the appearance and fit, giving you an opportunity to preview the new look. He will then go through several precise steps to bond the thin veneers to the outer surface of your teeth, creating an incredibly strong bond between tooth and porcelain. Minor adjustments to your bite and a final polish will leave you with a smile that may have you wondering why you waited so long to find Ranieu Family Dental!

 

Porcelain Crowns

Damaged teeth might seem hopeless, but there’s often still a solid foundation that leaves you with options. A crown, or cap, can bring a compromised tooth back to full function. And with modern porcelains, you’ll probably have a difficult time trying to find where the crown ends and the tooth starts.

Modern dentistry offers more options than ever to help you restore and maintain an optimal level of health. While the strength and beauty of materials continue to advance, the skill of the practitioner makes a significant difference in every outcome. Dr. Ranola focuses on utilizing the best techniques for comprehensive care, returning even the most damaged mouths to full health.

Sometimes teeth undergo significant damage due to cavities, heavy bite forces, trauma, or even normal functioning. If a root canal is needed to salvage a severely compromised nerve, the tooth may be especially fragile. Many situations can leave teeth in danger of loss if treatment is bypassed. Dental crowns, or caps, allow these teeth to be rebuilt and covered with materials that mimic nature. Not only are most “capped” teeth indistinguishable from natural teeth, but they’re also extremely secure and comfortable.

Crowns can be crafted to repair a single tooth, multiple teeth (including the entire mouth), or in conjunction with dental implants to fill a space. In fact, when missing teeth enter the equation, special consideration might be given to placing a dental bridge or implants.

One Simple Step

Once your case is planned, two appointments leave you with a restored tooth. At the first visit, the teeth are gently prepared to allow space for crafting porcelain over the tooth by a master lab technician. Dr. Ranola provides all the information to a specialized lab that’s needed to create a masterpiece. A temporary crown allows you to function normally until the crown arrives for placement typically within 2-3 weeks.

After hours of custom craftwork in the lab, you’ll return for a second appointment. Dr. Ranola will try-in and evaluate the appearance and fit of the crown, before bonding it strongly into place. Minor adjustments to your bite and a final polish leave you with one of the finest restorations in dentistry.

Porcelain Bridges

Dental bridges have traditionally been a top choice for replacing missing teeth. With the widespread use of dental implants, more options are now available to bridge gaps in your smile. Esthetic, customized porcelains, engineered into a bridge can be designed to eliminate spaces of every size.

Whenever you cruise across a bridge over the water, you’re being supported by the same principles that hold a dental bridge. Critical stabilization on each side helps bear the load, year after year. Teeth on either side of a space support a replacement tooth engineered from durable materials and glued into place. While this often serves for many years, the load-bearing teeth may deteriorate after thousands of chewing cycles. In some cases, this leads to more missing teeth.

A Better Bridge

In many cases, adding dental implants offer a better alternative, eliminating stress from the chewing system. When carefully placed in the bone of empty spaces, they mimic the roots of teeth. They bear the load that the natural teeth used to hold, sparing the neighboring teeth from excessive forces. In some cases, two implants may be used to build a bridge spanning from one solid titanium piece to another.

Although the planning becomes more complicated with larger spaces, Dr. Ranola knows how to bring the puzzle pieces together to fit any scenario. Regardless of the scope of your treatment, the steps are similar to deliver a functional, brilliant smile.
