If your smile is riddled with cracks, gaps, chips and discoloration – we can help. While these problems may seem large, they can be completely reversed in as little as one appointment with porcelain veneers. Dental grade porcelain is a versatile material that seamlessly fuses to your natural teeth, erasing years of neglect and imperfections. Also known as “instant orthodontics,” veneers can even straighten your teeth to perfection! Contact our Joplin dental office today to learn more and schedule a complimentary cosmetic consultation with cosmetic dentist Dr. Young.
Dental implants are a highly successful, state-of-the-art treatment for replacing damaged or missing teeth. In contrast to traditional options such as crowns and bridges, implants restore the entire tooth’s structure, including roots. With a success rate of over 97%, the replacement teeth fuse seamlessly with your natural bone and can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. Best of all, Dr. Young places and restores dental implants – completely eliminating the need for outside referrals to an oral surgeon.
Traditional metal braces are a nuisance, and the decrease in self-confidence patients experience during treatment is uncalled for. Invisalign® clear braces are an incredible alternative that provide real results just as effectively. Utilizing a system of invisible aligners, Invisalign® gradually shifts teeth into ideal positioning over a period of 10 to 12 months. Best of all, the trays are completely removable, allowing patients to take them out when eating, brushing or during photos.
Do you snore at night? Has anyone ever observed you gasping for air in your sleep? Do you feel groggy, tired and find it hard to focus throughout the day? These are all tell-tale signs and symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a serious health condition that can lead to several issues and complications as time passes – including death. Dr. Young is specially trained to help control and manage sleep apnea using a convenient and effective oral appliance.
TMJ disorder affects over 10 million Americans. Common symptoms include a painful jaw, frequent headaches and jaw clicking or popping. While some experience only minor issues, others live with extreme discomfort that interferes with quality of life. Dr. Young offers treatment with Botox® and dermal fillers that can relax the jaw muscles and prevent symptoms entirely. These treatments are also available for cosmetic rejuvenation of the skin and removal of wrinkles that come with age.
