A dental implant serves as an artificial root, firmly anchored into the jawbone that supports a fixed or removable tooth replacement. This is one of the strongest methods for replacing a damaged or missing tooth. It acts like your natural tooth and support your individually made porcelain crown, bridge or full prosthesis.

One of the greatest benefits of a dental implant is strength. The post or screw of a dental implant is made out of titanium. Due to the properties of this super-strong material, your body does not recognize it as a foreign object. This means that when a dental implant is put into place, your jawbone actually grafts itself to the titanium post making it just as strong as the original tooth and root.


At Merchants Walk dental, we prefer for our patients to use the at home professional teeth whitening kits that are customized to your teeth. If you decide Professional Teeth Whitening is for you, Dr. John Bishara and his highly trained staff will work with you to help you choose the right method that will best fit your teeth and your needs, literally.

Interesting Fact:

Kits that are found over-the-counter often contain trays that will never fit the same way a professionally molded tray will. This means that the excess whitening solutions are often unevenly covering your teeth, creating unnecessary stress and damage to your gums, and many times become quite unpleasant as solution drips into other areas of your mouth or throat. Come see us today so we can help you get your teeth whitened the right way!


Tooth bonding is a cosmetic procedure that is used to restore chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Your dentist will use a resin-based composite, which is colored to match your tooth, and then shaped to the form of your original tooth, restoring or filling any unwanted spaces. After it is placed on your tooth, it is then hardened with a special UV light to ensure it is secure. Tooth bonding will not be as secure as dental crowns or cosmetic veneers, but they are an inexpensive method for restoring teeth.

What are the Benefits of Tooth Bonding?
There are several benefits to tooth bonding, which makes them an ideal procedure for many patients who have a damaged tooth. Unlike dental crowns and veneers, there is less tooth preparation required with tooth bonding. The biggest advantage for most patients is that it can be less expensive than other restorative work, making this procedure an ideal treatment for any patient who has a budget. Tooth bonding is the perfect solution for making those minor cosmetic changes by closing in any gaps and changing the tooth color.
