When patients think of visiting the dentist, they don’t often think about visiting a holistic dentist. Holistic dentists are dental professionals who look out for the overall health and wellbeing of their patients. When individuals are faced with dental issues but want to do right by their oral health and wellness, they are encouraged to learn about the advantages of holistic dental care.
Dr. Carl McMillan of Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers offers patients in and around the Charlotte area quality care and attention for their dental health needs. While they do focus on the holistic aspect of all that they do, they provide a wide range of comprehensive care solutions. This may include a wide range of services such as:
While holistic dentists prefer not to place anything into the body that may be foreign, dental implants are sometimes the best option for specific individuals. We avoid the placement of traditional titanium implants and instead utilize zirconium, a material that is much more biocompatible and aesthetic. They are placed into the jawbone during surgery to replace missing teeth or stabilize full dentures.
Dental bridges are porcelain restorations that are used to replace missing teeth. They are made of ceramic, which closely resembles natural tooth enamel. Patients will have their teeth prepared and then impressions made to create the bridge. Bridges can replace one or more teeth in a row, depending on the needs of the patient.
Dental veneers, also known as porcelain veneers, are restorations used to cover imperfections in the natural teeth. Veneers are strong, durable, beautiful options for addressing issues such as spacing between teeth, misaligned teeth, teeth that are permanently stained, and teeth that are chipped or broken. Veneers are an affordable solution for many and can last many years.
Dental crowns are commonly placed over natural teeth to protect and strengthen them. They can also be used in conjunction with dental implants to act as a false tooth over an abutment. Dr. Carl McMillan uses a quality ceramist to fabricate these restorations for patients to ensure they are beautiful and functional.
Brightening the smile with bleaching solutions is a commonly requested procedure in and around the area. At Cary and Cornelius Holistic Dental Centers, we offer take-home whitening trays that can provide more effective, long-term results for our patients without the side effects commonly experienced with in-office power bleaching procedures offered by other dental practices.
