Once a year we open our doors here at South Hill Dental to provide free dental work to anyone who needs it in Puyallup and the surrounding communities. However, due to the global pandemic of COVID-19, we have had to put this annual event on hold for the time being.
Our commitment to the community is still our priority therefore we are offering a complete dental makeover for up to three deserving patients instead of our free dental day this year. This is to take place instead of our annual free dental day. This will allow us to perform the treatments in a safe and controlled environment which is completely safe for all.
Let's meet our finalists....
Angel is a dear friend. She had one of her adult teeth damaged as a baby, and it’s been a problem since it grew in . She has had multiple fillings on it and they just fall off. She has been told it’s too tiny for a veneer and the only solution is an implant. She is very self conscious of this tooth especially Because it’s right there in the front! Angel is a recent single mother to 3 children and I know this would be an amazing gift to her!
Angel became one of our three winners...
Dr. Kunal and his staff we're very kind and professional. I had a small discolored tooth right up front that had destroyed my confidence for so long. Dr. Kunal finally found a solution to repair it and I finally have a beautiful smile that I've always wanted.
Thank you all for your patience with my stubborn tooth and this wonderful opportunity. I am forever thankful!
The types of treatment that we can offer on the makeover which will occur over a 1-2 month period include:
Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants offers you the chance to live your life as if you had never suffered from missing teeth. When your dental implant treatment is complete, you should be able to chew, speak, and socialize without experiencing the negative emotions that having missing teeth can sometimes cause.
Each implant features an artificial root, the post, and a crown. A few implant posts can secure a bridge, partial or denture. Cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Porcelain veneers are handcrafted, custom-made, thin shells of dental porcelain placed on your front teeth. They are stain-resistant and custom-tinted to blend with surrounding teeth. Veneers can dramatically transform your smile by correcting flaws like:
When performed by a dentist, teeth whitening, or bleaching, is quite effective. Your dentist can administer a higher concentration of whitening solution than over-the-counter systems, so the results are more significant.
Dental Crowns and Onlays
A dental crown or onlay, made from porcelain or metal, covers a structurally damaged tooth to restore integrity. Deep cavities, chips, or cracks may require a crown. Your dentist will place an all-porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal crown on your teeth so that your smile remains white and natural-looking.
A small cavity left untreated, can grow to destroy an entire tooth. Unlike our skin, teeth don’t heal naturally. A dental filling, made from white composite resin or porcelain inlay, can fill a prepared cavity and reinforce a tooth’s structure.
In some cases, extracting a tooth is the best treatment option to reduce crowding, prepare for dentures, or eliminate a dead or dying tooth.
In some situations, you can avoid tooth extraction by undergoing a root canal. An internally infected or inflamed tooth may be treatable. Inside every tooth, canals house the pulp (nerve) that sustains the tooth’s life. A deep cavity or crack can compromise the pulp and cause infection or inflammation. As infection and inflammation build, the tooth begins to ache from internal pressure. At this point, your dentist will recommend extraction or a root canal.
