Crowns and Bridges
Protect and keep badly decayed or fractured teeth while maintaining a beautiful smile. Made to perfectly match the shape and shade of your other teeth, they’re durable, strong, and undetectable.
Crowns should be placed before the tooth is so decayed that it may fracture. This can often help prevent the expense of root canal therapy in the future. If a tooth is too damaged to have a crown applied, a porcelain bridge may be a good alternative.
Dental Implant Restorations
Ziegele Smile Studio provides dental implant restorations. Implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth, improving chewing ability, eliminating bridges, and replacing traditional dentures.
Several implants may provide a base for a series of artificial teeth known as a fixed bridge. Implants can even be used to secure a full set of removable dentures for our Sumner patients who have no remaining natural teeth or systemic problems with their teeth.
Our office is proud to offer the latest in treatment visualization technology. Using our PreVu™ software, we can take extremely accurate measurements and photographs of your mouth and jaw. This imaging and measuring are combined with cutting-edge photo editing software to give you a visual ‘preview’ of the results of their treatment before they even start!
Visit Sumner’s Choice for Clear Orthodontics
Learn about SureSmile® with Sumner dentist, Dr. Ziegele
Dr. Ziegele offers teen and adult patients clear orthodontics to enhance their overall health. Straight teeth and a revitalized smile not only look beautiful but allow you to more easily maintain your teeth enabling you to stay healthy and smile more. SureSmile® offers an esthetic way to realign your teeth without the hassles of braces in less time than Invisalign®.
Veneers are very thin porcelain pieces that are custom-made to adhere directly to the front of teeth without grinding or shaving. With veneers, Dr. Ziegele can transform your smile without drilling on your natural teeth.
If you suffer from headaches or pain, clicking or popping while chewing, there may be problems with your temporomandibular joint (or TMJ). Call us today to schedule a free TMJ treatment consultation.
Sleep Apnea Device
There are several treatment options to maintain an open airway during sleep and prevent the collapse associated with sleep apnea. Traditional medical options include a CPAP machine or various types of surgery involving the nasal or oral airways. Dr. Ziegele recommends using an airway device that looks a little like a sports mouthguard. This oral device repositions your jaw to open the airway and provide a snore-free and apnea-free restful sleep.
Discover Smile Makeovers
Dr. April Ziegele has been restoring Sumner’s smiles for over 20 years
Cosmetic dentistry is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve your appearance. A beautiful, bright, healthy smile can increase self-confidence and overall life satisfaction.
Cosmetic dentistry can encompass things such as tooth-colored fillings, dental implants, or crowns. We have many options, so please come in for a free cosmetic consultation and receive a complimentary digital smile makeover.
Sedation dentistry with Dr. Ziegele allows her patients to relax while undergoing restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. Dental sedation enables patients to overcome anxiety from discomfort up to phobia about even visiting the dentist. Plus, sedation allows you to group various procedures into a single office visit, making it a better use of your time. And in the end, you have little or no recollection of your visit.
Mercury Free Restorations
The common silver filling contains mercury. Dr. Ziegele uses the highest-quality biocompatible, tooth-colored restorations to create healthy, beautiful smiles. Since the composite material adheres directly to the tooth enamel, less preparation of the tooth is required before using it. This means it is more durable and provides a more natural-looking result for her Sumner patients.
Many everyday things like coffee, tea, and wine can significantly dull teeth. Smile-whitening enables us to significantly brighten your smile for that dazzling white smile you deserve.
Plastic whitening trays will be made from models of your teeth. You will then place a special whitening gel in each tray and wear the trays in your mouth for several hours per day. (Many patients wear their trays after dinner and before bed.) A significant change in tooth color is usually seen in just four to six weeks.
