Your Dream Smile. A beautiful, natural looking smile
The professionals at Dr. Baran's office have created a place where all dental procedures are complete in one location. Dr. Baran emphasizes the cosmetic aspect in ALL of her work because she knows that when your smile looks good, you feel good! You may have seen Dr. Baran interviewed about her amazing cosmetic dentistry techniques. She can help you using combinations of bonding and porcelain veneers, her modern smile makeovers are so easy (and affordable) that there's simply no reason why you can't have a beautiful, dazzling smile - a perfectly NATURAL looking smile that even strangers will compliment you about. Dr. Baran also offers sedation dentistry for your comfort and convenience.

With the popularity of "Extreme Makeovers" and other similar programs, everyone has become quite savvy about health-related cosmetic options. Whether it's a facelift, botox, tooth whitening or veneers, most people have an accurate idea of what's involved.

We now stay physically healthy a lot longer than we did in years past. However, all that good living takes its toll on our appearance. Just as our bodies age, so do your teeth. Yellowing, chips, and crowding of teeth are akin to wrinkles and age spots on skin. So cosmetic dental treatments can be an important adjunct to other cosmetic procedures.

Many advancements have been made in the last ten years in cosmetic dentistry. We are now able to create beautiful smiles in situations that used to be difficult. Those patients who have undergone a cosmetic "makeover" have very often reported a new outlook on like, and an increase in their self-esteem. The feel so much better about themselves, that they smile most of the time, and are so much more motivated to maintain good homecare habits. The net result of all of this is a patient with not only a beautiful smile, but a healthier mouth as well.

The change in a person's appearance after a "smile lift" can be dramatic. When we look good, we feel good, and the people around us take notice. Projecting an image of self-confidence can be life-changing!

Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, intraoral pictures,  diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take digital x-rays, which could include the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.

Dental Implants
Our team includes an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance. Dental implants are a wonderful method to replace missing teeth. At Dr. Baran's Office we see our patients through the entire procedure, from placement of the implant to the complete restoration. Implant final restorations include crowns, bridges, and dentures for optimal dental health.

Teeth Bleaching

Our state-of-the-art, in-office Zoom Whitening system will make your teeth whiter in less than 1.5 hours, this system also include custom fit trays and solution. Another option is our home bleaching system you take with you for results in 2 weeks, which consists of custom fit trays and solution. You can also consider our Sheer White Strips; this system is convenient at-home treatment.

Crowns/Same Day Crowns
When a natural tooth has had a root canal, has broken, or is malformed, it will require a crown. A crown is an artificial tooth, made from durable, tooth-colored materials, often porcelain that has been fabricated to fully cover the natural tooth to protect it. Chewing function and appearance are restored, and the replacement looks and functions like a natural tooth. Dr. Baran and her associates are highly experienced with the CEREC technology, same day crowns. Dr. Baran has used the CEREC technology for over 15 years.

Bridges
Bridges are designed to replace missing teeth. Plaster models are taken of your mouth, and sent to a laboratory, along with detailed instructions for the bridge design, paying strict attention to the shape, size and placement of the teeth and their relationship to the gums. The bridge often made of porcelain, and is carefully matched to your tooth color, so it looks and feels just like your own teeth. It is affixed with special adhesive that is a permanent bond.

Fillings: Resin
Composite resin fillings have

Root Canals
We perform all root canal treatment; anterior, premolar, and molar teeth. Our office also performs retreatment of root canals. After a root canal procedure, usually a crown is recommended to proper restoration. A root canal and CEREC crown can be completed in one visit.

Periodontal Treatment
As long as theeth and gums are healthy a standard cleaning is at least twice year. If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, a periodontal scaling procedure may be necessary to bring your teeth and gums back to a healthy level. You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year.  

Mouth Guards
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.

Removable Dental Prosthesis
For missing teeth, we can make dentures or removable partials for you.

Invisalign
Invisalign Invisible braces uses a custom set of clear plastic aligners you wear over your teeth to gradually and gently move them into the correct position. The best part is most people won't know you are even wearing them.

Fast Braces
Fast braces is the most advanced braces system available today. It is fast, safe, easy and affordable. The process moves the root and tooth at the same time wihout resulting in root resorption. Patients can see dramatic results in a year and in some instances just three months.   

Severe Crowding

High Canines
High canines are common problem when there is insufficient room in the arch for them to erupt into their correct positions. High canines can cause discomfort in the gums due to inflammation around the improperly erupted teeth.

Crowding
Crowding occurs when there is simply not enough room in the mouth for all of teeth to erupt (come in) properly. If left untreated, crowding can worsen over time and result in severely overlapped teeth. This may increase risk of plaque accumulation, decay and periodontal disease.

Open Bite
An open bite occurs when the front teeth do not make contact with their opposing teeth. This can be caused by habits, improperly erupted teeth or genetically abnormal jaw structure. It can result in speech impairment, poor chewing, or even temporo-mandibular joint disorder (TMJ).

Over Bite
The proper dental term for "overbite" is actually "overjet". This occurs when the upper teeth protrude over the lower teeth for an improper occlusion (bite when closed). Some causes include genetics, or underdevelopment of the alveolar or skeletal bone supporting the teeth. Overjet can be the cause of gum irritation, wear on the lower teeth and/or jaw and joint problems.

Spacing
Spacing between teeth can occur when there is a tooth/jaw size discrepancy. Extractions (pulled teeth) can also cause their adjacent teeth to shift due to the additional space created by the missing teeth. Gaps between teeth can lead to gum issues, deeper pockets beside teeth, and other possible problems.

Crossbite
Crossbite can be the result of both upper and lower teeth and/or jaws being misaligned. One or more of the upper teeth tend to bite inside of the lower teeth, and this can occur on the sides as well as the front of the mouth. Crossbite can lead to wearing down of teeth, bone loss and gum disease.

TMJ

People who grind their teeth can sometimes develop a serious problem with their jaw, which left untreated, can adversely affect the teeth, gums and bone structures of the mouth.

One of the most common jaw disorders is related to a problem with the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull, and allows your upper and lower jaw to open and close and facilitates chewing and speaking.

People with temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD) often have a clicking or popping sound when opening and closing their mouths. Such disorders are often accompanied by frequent headaches, neck aches, and in some cases, tooth sensitivity.

Some treatments for TMD include muscle relaxants, aspirin, biofeedback, or wearing a custom fitted appliance worn in the moth during sleep or sometimes during the day if necessary.

Minor cases of TMD involve discomfort or pain in the jaw muscles. More serious conditions involve improperly aligned joints or dislocated jaws. The most extreme form of TMD involves an arthritic condition of the jaw joint. Traumatic injuries also can cause jaw dislocation.

In these cases, jaw surgery, may be required to correct the condition. Some jaw surgery can be performed arthroscopically.
