Schedule an appointment to have your teeth and smile evaluated. Dr. Hakham will determine how your smile can be improved using advanced techniques in Esthetic and Biomimetic Dentistry.
  • Teeth Whitening

    A brighter smile gives the impression of youth, vitality, radiant health, happiness, and warmth. A bright smile is perceived as a healthy smile. As we age, our adult teeth often become darker, yellower, or stained. This is partly why white teeth make people appear more youthful. There are various ways to whiten your teeth, but the two most common are in-office treatment and the do-it-yourself approach with trays and whitening gel.Professional tooth whitening in a dental office provides very effective and fast results. Even though strong agents are applied, the rest of the mouth is protected from these materials. The best whitening systems feature a buffer in the gel that protects the tooth enamel from damage, are extremely effective, and can transform teeth in a single office visit. Properly fitting customized trays can be fabricated to apply the whitening gel at home at your own pace. The advantages of this method include having more control over the process and reduced sensitivity.
  • Porcelain Veneers

    Thin pieces of porcelain bonded to the front surface of teeth to recreate the natural appearance of teeth. Veneers are a successful treatment of choice where the original tooth has developed poor color, shape, and contours. It is also a good choice for fractured teeth, gaps between teeth, and in some situations where the tooth position is compromised with minor bite-related problems.​Porcelain veneers consist of a compilation of several thin ceramic layers which replace original tooth enamel, and an adhesive layer. To apply a veneer, a very small amount of the original tooth enamel must be removed, usually less than a millimeter. Veneers are individually customized and sculpted for each patient, making it nearly impossible to differentiate between a veneer and a natural tooth. You can take advantage of a complementary consultation for porcelain veneers by requesting an appointment.
  • Composite Resin (Tooth Colored) Fillings

    Composites fillings are made of a plastic resin and silica filler. Today, so much more is known about the interface between dentin and enamel and the bond created between these two natural products. This has led science to discover new ways of bonding fillings to teeth to create a stronger, more protected connection and also more comfortable dental fillings. Restoring teeth depends on a good bond between resin materials and both the enamel and dentin. Restorative dentistry recreates a tooth that not only looks natural but responds naturally too, allowing bite stress to pass through the tooth while receiving biting force. Today, dentistry uses nature as a guide by constantly looking for materials that more closely mimic teeth in form and function. It is a combination of art and science that takes into account the action of the tooth being restored and its internal shape. A tooth, or portion of a tooth, is then recreated using materials that respond as a healthy tooth would.
  • Porcelain Onlay

    Onlays are used to repair teeth with mild to moderate decay, teeth with large existing fillings, or cracked and fractured teeth that are not sufficiently damaged to need a crown. Durable onlay restorations are usually fabricated from porcelain. Dental porcelain is a great product because it can be shaped to replicate original teeth anatomy. Porcelain is also very durable, will withstand most natural tooth functions, and can vividly mimic tooth enamel with its glass-like whiteness and translucence. Porcelain onlays typically require two appointments to be completed. During the first visit, any old fillings and decay will be removed and the tooth will be prepared. An impression will be taken and sent to the laboratory, where highly advanced computer programs are used by experienced dental technicians to fabricate and customize the restoration. Expect to be fitted with a temporary restoration in the meantime, since some laboratory time is required for the restoration to be created.
  • Dental Crowns

    Crowns are the treatment of choice in situations where tooth decay has destroyed most of the original tooth, where a large filling needs to be replaced, when a traumatic event has caused damage, or in cases of severe enamel erosion. They are also an option for people who grind their teeth so much that the original structure of their teeth has been compromised. Crowns replace the exterior portion of a tooth to re-establish its original function and to create a natural appearance. With the recent introduction of monolithic zirconia in dentistry, we are able to deliver high-strength restorations that exhibit natural appearances and lifelike translucency. Completion of a crown requires two appointments. During the first visit, any old fillings and decay will be removed and the teeth will be prepared. An impression will be taken and sent to the dental laboratory, where dental technicians fabricate and customize the restoration. Expect to be fitted with a temporary in the meantime.
  • Dental Bridge

    A fixed bridge replaces a tooth or a few teeth that are no longer viable by using the surrounding teeth as a foundation. This creates a literal “bridge” between the remaining teeth. Crowns and bridges could be fabricated from porcelain, metal (a gold or other metal alloy), a combination of both (porcelain-fused-to-metal), or zirconia. With the recent introduction of monolithic zirconia in dentistry, we have been able to deliver high-strength restorations that exhibit natural appearances and lifelike translucency. Completion of a crown or bridge typically requires two appointments. During the first visit, any old fillings and decay will be removed and the teeth will be prepared. An impression will be taken and sent to the dental laboratory, where highly advanced computer programs are used by experienced dental technicians to fabricate and customize the restoration. Expect to be fitted with a temporary restoration in the meantime, since some laboratory time is required.

Biomimetic Dentistry

  • Biomimetic Dentistry

    Biomimetic Dentistry ​is defined as the use of specific techniques and materials to mimic the biological properties of teeth at time of treatment. In general, when a tooth erupts in the mouth, it is naturally provided with the most ideal anatomy and strength. In cases of decayed or cracked teeth, Biomimetic Dentistry aims to restore the tooth to its original Health, Function, and Beauty.​The following demonstrates a recent case where a tooth presented with decay around and underneath an existing composite resin restoration (tooth-colored filling). After careful removal of the old filling and decay in a conservative manner, the tooth was restored with composite resin material using principles of bonding. As evident, the tooth was artistically restored to ideal anatomy. This case represents an example of Biomimetic Dentistry; where the tooth was restored back to life!​Next time you have a tooth restored because of decay or cracks, make sure it is done Biomimetically!

Orthodontics Braces and Invisalign

  • Orthodontic Consultation

    $0.00
    Looking for options to straighten your teeth? Dr. Frankel will evaluate your teeth and determine all options, including traditional braces and invisalign, to straighten your teeth and improve your chewing function in addition to your smile. Includes panoramic radiograph. Please note, appointments for orthodontic consultations are only available on the second Monday of every month. Please call for details.
  • Traditional Braces

    The most common method for orthodontic treatment is by use of braces, which consist of bands, wires and/or brackets. Bands are fixed around the teeth and used as anchors for the appliance, while brackets are most often bonded to the front of the tooth. Arch wires are passed through the brackets and attached to the bands. Tightening the arch wire puts tension on the teeth, gradually moving them to their proper position. Braces are usually adjusted monthly to bring about the desired results, which may be achieved within a few months to a few years. Today's braces are smaller, lighter and show far less metal than in the past. They come in bright colors for kids as well as clear styles preferred by many adults.As an alternative to traditional braces for adults, clear aligners are being used by an increasing number of orthodontists to move teeth in the same way that fixed appliances work, only without metal wires. For more information on clear aligner, please see the section on Invisalign.
  • Invisalign Clear Aligner Treatment

    Clear orthodontic aligners can straighten a dental patient’s teeth without the wires and brackets of traditional braces. The aligners consist of a sequence of clear, removable trays that fit over the teeth to straighten them. Each tray must be worn by the patient for a specified amount of time—usually around 20 hours a day for two weeks–before the patient can progress to the next tray. In most situations, the aligners can straighten teeth in anywhere from six to 18 months.Clear orthodontic aligners are suitable for patients with mild or moderate crowding, or minor spacing issues. They may not be appropriate for patients with severe crowding or spacing. Unlike traditional braces, the trays can be removed for brushing, flossing, and eating. Because the trays are clear, patients can undergo this type of orthodontic treatment without the usual discomfort associated with regular braces.

Replacement of Missing Teeth

  • Dental Implants

    DENTAL IMPLANTS are frequently the best option for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant designed to replace a single tooth is composed of three parts: the titanium implant that fuses with the jaw bone through a process called osseointegration; the abutment, which fits over the portion of the implant that protrudes from the gum line; and the crown, which is fitted onto the abutment for a natural appearance.The key benefit of dental implants over other tooth replacement systems is that an implant connects directly to the jaw bone. When a tooth is lost, bone loss will eventually occur in that region because the root is no longer stimulating and stabilizing the bone. By using titanium–which biochemically joins to bone–to replace the root, you get a bond that more accurately replicates the one found in nature.Replacing a tooth with an implant and a dental crown is completed in several visits in the course of a few months. Call today for a complementary consultation.
  • Dentures

    Dentures describe a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Three types of dentures are available: partial, complete, and overdentures. For many years, partial dentures have been used to replace groups of teeth or a few teeth scattered across the lower or upper jaw. There are a variety of removable partial dentures available to patients and each one comes with its own set of benefits and disadvantages. All partial dentures attach to remaining teeth and have a gum–colored portion meant to blend into the existing gum, with prosthetic teeth to replace the missing teeth.

Dental Teeth Cleaning

  • Scaling and Root Planing: Dental Deep Cleaning

    Scaling and root planing is a thorough dental cleaning of tooth root surfaces to remove plaque and tartar (calculus) from around teeth and periodontal pockets in the gums, and to smooth the teeth roots to remove bacterial toxins. Scaling and root planing, along with proper daily brushing and flossing, is effective in treating gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease. Scaling and root planing also is a cost effective, minimally invasive, and non-surgical way to prevent and/or treat the more serious form of gum disease called periodontitis. Gingivitis is a milder, more easily corrected form of gum disease; periodontitis is a more serious form that progresses over a longer time. Consequences and treatment may be more involved for periodontitis.
  • Arestin

    ARESTIN (minocycline HCl) Microspheres, 1 mg is a concentrated, locally applied antibiotic that remains active in the pocket for an extended period of time to reduce pocket depth. Themicrospheres release antibiotic over time, targeting bacteria to reduce pocket depth, so gums can heal better than with scaling and root planing alone.

Endodontics

  • Root Canal Treatment

    A root canal is a dental procedure that is used to remove diseased pulp tissue from the interior of a tooth. The narrow channels beneath the pulp chamber in the inner part of the tooth are hollowed out and cleaned, and the roots are filed with flexible nickel titanium files. If dental pulp is sufficiently traumatized – whether by exposure to oral bacteria via deep dental caries, a fracture in the tooth that enters the pulp or a forceful blow to the face – the tooth begins to die and root canal therapy is often required in order to prevent or eliminate infection and prevent tooth loss.A root canal procedure involves tooth disinfection and the removal of all debris (nerve tissue, lymph tissue, blood tissue, bacteria and infection) from the coronal pulp chamber and its associated canals. Once an affected tooth’s canals are sufficiently cleansed and shaped, they are filled with materials designed to prevent pain and infection from recurring.

Dental Extractions

  • Tooth extraction

    Tooth extraction involves removing a tooth from its socket in the jaw bone. Reasons for Extraction include: • Severe Tooth Damage/Trauma: Some teeth have such extensive decay and damage (broken or cracked) that repair is not possible. For example, teeth affected by advanced gum (periodontal) disease may need to be pulled. As gum disease worsens, the tooth — supported by less surrounding bone — often loosens to such an extent that extraction is the only solution.• Malpositioned/Nonfunctioning Teeth: To avoid possible complications that may result in an eventual, negative impact on oral health.• Orthodontic Treatment: Orthodontic treatment, such as braces, may require the removal of teeth to make needed space for improved teeth alignment.• Extra Teeth: Also referred to as supernumerary teeth, extra teeth may block other teeth from erupting.
  • Wisdom Teeth Extraction

    Wisdom teeth, also referred to as the “third molars”, are as important as other teeth, but more prone to problems during their eruption (breaking through the gum tissue). Since wisdom teeth are the last to erupt — usually between the ages of 17 and 21 — there often is little room left in the mouth.As a result, they may erupt sideways, only partially, or become trapped (impacted), leading to pain, infection, and gum line and facial swelling. When any of these conditions arise, your dentist may determine that extraction is necessary.Removal is a fairly common oral surgery, however the procedure is complicated if wisdom teeth have not yet erupted. Some general dentists have the skill required to remove impacted or un-erupted wisdom teeth, though most people require the services of an oral surgeon. In fact, many patients prefer to be heavily sedated for the procedure. Thus, dentists must have the equipment and skill necessary to sedate or provide general anesthesia to patients.

Night Occlusal Guard

  • Night Guard

    People who suffer from night-time teeth clenching or grinding (bruxism) should wear night guards to help lessen wear and tear on the teeth and reduce the possibility of tooth fractures. Custom-fitted to the upper or lower teeth, these dental appliances also can be used to manage problems caused by jaw issues, such as headaches and neck aches, as well as stabilize a person’s bite before undergoing dental procedures.
