DENTURES, PARTIAL DENTURES, & BRIDGES
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that can replace missing teeth, both for patients missing some of their teeth, and patients missing all teeth on the upper arch, and/or lower arch. Partial dentures are traditionally removable, but they can also be fixed, called a bridge, where the prosthetic teeth are fixed to a crown fitted over a natural tooth, anchoring the dentures in place. Dr. Foulk has a keen eye for making the prosthetic teeth blend with your natural teeth so your smile looks natural and dazzling. Your comfort is of utmost importance, and Dr. Foulk will make sure the denture feels natural and a perfect fit.

FULL MOUTH RESTORATION
Dr. Foulk loves to help those who need a partial or complete restoration of their mouth and teeth. Depending on what is needed, he can do a combination of treatments, such as extractions, crowns, bridges, fillings, veneers, and gum contouring. When complete, you will have a healthy mouth, functional teeth, and a beautiful, vibrant smile.
A veneer is a thin layer of material secured over a tooth’s surface. It is used to either protect a tooth with a damaged surface, or improve its appearance as well as the shape of your smile. Porcelain veneers are made in a lab out of porcelain which has some translucent qualities making it look more natural. Prepless veneers do not require the removal of any tooth enamel, but is a thin layer of porcelain added on top. It is thin, yet durable, and can last a long time. As a cosmetic dentist, Dr. Foulk can use veneers to give you the perfect, dazzling smile you’ve always wanted.
Come in to see where you can take your smile. With a combination of various general and cosmetic treatments, such as crowns, veneers, Invisalign, gum contouring, and teeth whitening, Dr. Foulk can transform your smile into one you will love to show off.
TEETH STRAIGHTENING WITH INVISALIGN CLEAR BRACES
Invisalign braces are clear plastic aligners that can straighten your teeth while allowing you to maintain your beautiful smile. There are no chunky metal brackets or wires, so it’s more comfortable for your mouth and gums. Plus, you can take them out to eat, clean your teeth, and even for special occasions. The Invisalign system is ideal for teens and adults who want to resolve issues such as overcrowded teeth, smile gaps, under bites, over bites, and cross bites. Invisalign may not work for all dental issues, but Dr. Foulk will be able to evaluate your current smile, where you want to take it, and make a recommendation.
If your gums are uneven, or rest too low, gum contouring surgery can reshape your gum line and make a big impact on your smile. Dr. Foulk will consult with you on what changes you want to make to your gum line, and design your new gum line. During the procedure, he will make sure you are completely comfortable by using local anesthesia. The procedure is done with a dental laser, which can remove gum tissue cleanly with minimal discomfort after the procedure is over and the anesthesia worn off. If you have any questions, call or come in for a consult, and Dr. Foulk can talk you through every step and address any concerns you may have.
