An increasingly popular alternative to silver amalgam fillings is composite white fillings. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings are virtually invisible, and our team at Broadway Dental Arts can shade them according to the color of your teeth to create a perfect match, giving you a beautiful, white smile!Read more about White Fillings
Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap (these anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth) and a false tooth or teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Invisalign takes a modern-day approach to straightening your teeth. This treatment uses a series of aligners that are custom-made just for you. This method of alignment is known to be comfortable since the aligners are thin and transparent, and it's not as noticeable as other methods. Daily use of the Invisalign aligners will steadily shift your teeth into the correct position, providing you with a beautifully straight smile. Before beginning your treatment, you and our dentist at Broadway Dental Arts will choose a plan which properly suits your needs. Learn more about the steps we take for this procedure at our Sand Springs, Oklahoma, dental office, below.Read more about Invisalign

Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their color, shape, size or length.
What Type of Problems Do Porcelain Veneers Correct?
- Teeth that are discolored -- either because of root canal treatment, stains from tetracycline or other drugs, excessive fluoride or the presence of large resin fillings that have discolored the tooth
- Teeth that are worn down
- Teeth that are chipped or broken
- Teeth that are misaligned, uneven or irregularly shaped
- Teeth with gaps between them
Porcelain veneers are stronger and more durable than composite resin veneers and last 10 to 15 years, while composite resin veneers last between five and seven years. Porcelain veneers also resist stains better than resin veneers and better mimic the light reflecting properties of natural teeth. As you might assume, porcelain veneers cost significantly more than composite veneers.
