Feel free to check out some of our before and after photos to see what may be possible for you!

Zoom Whitening:
An in-office bleaching process that brightens discolored or stained teeth. The complete procedure takes about one hour, but a preliminary evaluation and teeth cleaning is recommended prior to the treatment.

Custom-fitted shells that are applied and bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth to cosmetically correct teeth that are crooked or misshapen or to cover up gaps, stains and chips.

Gum reshaping:
This procedure helps patients whose gums are uneven or cover too much of their teeth.

At Jackson Dental we feel that you are best served by starting with a comprehensive evaluation of your oral condition to allow us to develop several restorative options specific to you.  We then discuss all of these options with you to reach an agreed-upon plan which best suits your needs and goals. It is important to us that you know ALL of your options before starting on the path to restoring your mouth to health.

Restorative dentistry services

At Jackson Dental our restorative dentistry techniques allow us to help you get your smile back to its original beauty.

An important aspect of our restorative dentistry options at Jackson Dental is the ability to place and restore dental implants. Jackson Dental is proud to offer this cutting edge service to Southeast Missouri and Southern Illinois. We use cutting edge technology including a cone beam CT 3-D imaging system and Biohorizon's Dental implants (with support from 20+ years of research) to offer dental implant services which are safe and effective. Dr. Bell has traveled all over the United States to learn the skill of placing dental implants from some of the most respected dentists in the field so that he can offer this service to our patients.

We work closely with a renowned ceramist and his exceptional team to offer high-quality porcelain restorations that will provide years of beauty and allow you to eat all of the foods you love.

The process:

Step 1: A comprehensive evaluation of your oral health is performed.
Step 2: A consultation is scheduled and all of your treatment and financial options are presented.
Step 3: A treatment plan that best suits your needs is developed.

Single Tooth Replacement:
If a tooth is missing or becomes lost, a dental implant and crown can be used to replace the missing tooth which preserves the teeth on either side of the missing tooth, and the bone at the site of the missing tooth. At Jackson Dental we have developed a protocol that allows us to offer single tooth dental implants for back teeth as low as $2500 (excluding what dental insurance may cover). The replacement of front teeth are more case specific and require the doctors to take a look to get an accurate cost estimate. 

Replacement of several teeth:
In a situation where several teeth in a row are missing, dental implants can be used to replace the natural tooth roots of two or more of these missing teeth. Bridges are then placed on top of the dental implants by way of abutments that allow several teeth to be replaced without the necessity of a dental implant for every individual tooth. Unlike traditional bridgework, a dental implant supported bridge does not require the compromise of otherwise healthy teeth around the area.

Guided Implant Surgery:
At Jackson Dental we have added the use of 3D imaging with a cone-beam CT scanner to our practice. This device uses only a modest dose of radiation (several times smaller than a traditional medical CT scan) and allows us to visualize in three dimensions the proposed implant site prior to surgery. In more difficult cases, the 3D scan created may be used to create a surgical guide which can be used during implant placement to ensure that the implant is placed exactly where it needs to be to achieve the best results.
