Are your teeth chipped, worn out or discolored? Porcelain Veneers may be just what you need.
Porcelain veneers are a great choice if you want to cosmetically improve your smile. They function to reshape teeth, change tooth color, close spaces, and fix worn out or chipped teeth, creating the smile you’ve always dreamed of. Once porcelain veneers are bonded to the teeth, they become invisible to the naked eye and are strong enough to resist coffee, tea, and cigarette stains. They also highly resemble healthy, white tooth enamel which makes them the best restorative option on the market. At Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care, our team is extensively trained in cosmetically improving your smile and work with extreme precision to match and enhance the characteristics of each patient’s teeth.
No More Metal Fillings
Are your metal fillings preventing you from showing off your best smile? That might not be the only way they are hurting you.
With the advancements in technology over the years, metal fillings are no longer recommended. In fact, it has now been proven that they can wreak havoc on your immune system and can cause or increase the severity of existing health conditions. If you have them, let us help you replace them with tooth colored composites that are less harmful and much more cosmetically pleasing. At Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care, our team of cosmetic dentists will closely match the color of your existing teeth, so no one can see your fillings.
Metal Free Crowns
What is the difference between Traditional Crowns and Crowns made of Zirconia?
Crowns are primary used to repair broken or fractured teeth, help restore a tooth that underwent a root canal, or change the shape and/or color of a tooth. There are two types of crowns that we work with: fully zirconia crowns and traditional crowns. Traditional crowns use a metal lining that prevents light from passing through the crown as it does with a natural tooth, but the lining can also leave a dark or gray tint next to the gum line, while zirconia crowns highly resemble the natural look and color of your teeth. At Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care, our team of cosmetic dentists will assess the health of your teeth and talk you through which type of crown is best suited for your needs.

Inlays and Onlays vs. Crowns
What are inlays and Onlays; and how do they differ from Crowns?
Inlays, onlays, and crowns vary in the amount of tooth structure they replace. Crowns (or caps) are cosmetic restorations that cover the whole tooth. Inlays and onlays are more desirable cosmetic alternatives because they are more conservative and requiring less reduction of natural tooth structure. Placement of a crown requires removal of healthier tooth structure than that of an inlay or onlay, and that can make the possibility of a future root canal greater. Inlays and onlays are also important in preserving periodontal health because they can be bonded above the gum line, making cleaning easier and irritation less likely. A crown, however, is a good option for a tooth that has already undergone a root canal or doesn’t have enough sufficient healthy tooth structure remaining. At Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care, our team will assess your individual situations and make the best possible recommendations for inlays, onlays and crowns.
Don’t you want to make sure you never deal with cavities again?
Sealants are made of a resin material that is applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth, bonding to the depressions and grooves (pits and fissures) of the chewing surfaces of teeth. The sealant is a barrier that protects the enamel from plaque and acids. According to the American Dental Association, more than 80% of cavities are caused by the decay of those pits and fissures, which can begin early in life. If the sealant remains intact, your tooth is prevented from surface decay. The sealants are sturdy, can resist the force of normal chewing and can last several years before reapplication is required. During regular checkups, our team at Dr. Zak North Park Dental Care will inspect your current sealants and reapply when necessary.
