We Offer the Following Services

Bleaching

For people who truly want a big, bright beautiful white smile the best course of action is through cosmetic teeth whitening. These procedures are costly but they are also highly effective. We offer both in-office bleaching as well as custom take-home trays to drastically brighten the appearance of your smile.

Bonding

Bonding is a composite resin filling placed in the back teeth as well as the front teeth. Composites are the solution for restoring decayed teeth, making cosmetic improvements and even changing the color of your teeth or the reshaping of teeth. Bonding will lighten any stains you may have, close up minor gaps and can be used to correct crooked teeth. Basically, bonding will cover any natural flaws applying a thin coating of a plastic material on the front surface of your teeth. After this, your cosmetic dentist will apply a bonding material and sculpt, color and shape it to provide a pleasing result. A high-intensity light then hardens the plastic, and the surface is finely polished.

Cosmetic Dentistry

From subtle changes to major repairs, your dentist can perform a variety of procedures to improve your smile. There are many techniques and options to treat teeth that are discolored, chipped, misshapen or missing. Your dentist can reshape your teeth, close spaces, restore worn or short teeth or alter the length of your teeth. Common procedures include bleaching, bonding, crowns, veneers and reshaping and contouring.

These improvements are not always just cosmetic. Many of these treatments can improve oral problems, such as your bite.

Crowns & Bridges

Both crowns and most bridges are fixed prosthetic devices. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which you can take out and clean daily, crowns and bridges are cemented onto existing teeth or implants, and can only be removed by a dentist.

Dentures

Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.

There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.

Endodontics

In most cases, endodontic treatment saves teeth which otherwise would have to be extracted.  Endodontics, or root canal therapy, consists of cleansing, disinfecting and filling the root canal(s) of the diseased tooth.

Extractions

A dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.

Fillings

A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material.

By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling also helps prevent further decay. Materials used for fillings include gold, porcelain, a composite resin (tooth-colored fillings), and an amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc).

General Dentistry

General dentistry concerns the health and maintenance of your teeth and gums, such as cleanings, repairs, disease prevention, and more. General dentistry is what will help maintain your teeth and gums so that your smile lasts throughout the ages.

Geriatric Dentistry

Geriatric dentistry is the delivery of dental care to older adults involving the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of problems associated with normal aging and age-related diseases.

Oral Surgery

Oral surgery is the area of medicine concerned with correcting problems or damage to the mouth, teeth and jaw. It is often referred to as “Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery” which combines oral surgery with surgery on the structures of the face, sinuses and neck.

Oral surgery is commonly performed to remove wisdom teeth, prepare the mouth for dentures, repair jaw problems and perform root canals.

Pediactric Dentistry

Pediatric dentistry is the branch of dental medicine that focuses on preventive and corrective dental care and oral health for children.

Periodontics

Periodontics is the study and treatment of dental diseases and conditions related to the supporting structures of teeth. These tissues are known as the periodontium and include the gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum and the periodontal ligament.

Preventative Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is the area of dentistry that focuses on those procedures and life practices that help people to prevent the beginning or progression of oral disease. It includes at-home dental care performed by patients, as well as dental care and education by professional dental staff in the office or clinic.

Prosthodontics

A prosthodontist specializes in restoring or replacing teeth through implants, veneers, crowns, bridges, or other methods. Prosthodontic treatment is the key to a smile that looks great and functions well.

Removal of Plaque

Plaque is a complex biological soil that can lead to dental problems like tartar, gum trouble and tooth decay.  It’s a soft, sticky bacterial coating that is constantly forming on your teeth-every day.  When plaque comes into contact with the sugars and starches in the foods you eat, it produces acids that can cause cavities. 

Root Canal

Root canal treatment (also called a root canal) is done when decay will likely damage or has already killed a tooth. During a root canal, a dentist or endodontist removes the pulp from the center of a tooth and fills the pulp cavity. This can prevent the development of a painful infection in the pulp that may spread to other teeth. A root canal can also treat an infection that has developed into an abscessed tooth. This procedure can relieve toothache, stop infection, and promote healing.

Sleep Apnea Treatment

Several different dental devices are available. A trained dental professional such as a dentist or orthodontist should fit these devices. Devices include:

  • Mandibular advancement device (MAD). This is the most widely used dental device for sleep apnea. It is similar in appearance to a sports mouth guard. MAD forces the lower jaw forward and down slightly, which keeps the airway open.
  • Tongue retraining device (TRD). This is a splint that holds the tongue in place to keep the airway as open as possible.

Patients fitted with one of these devices should have a check-up early on to see if it is working; short-term success usually predicts long-term benefits. It may need to be adjusted or replaced periodically.

Special care taken for those with tooth sensitivity

Tooth sensitivity is due to the exposure of dentin, the part of the tooth which covers the nerve, either through loss of the enamel layer or recession of the gums. Temperature changes and certain foods (acidic or sweet) can cause the tooth or teeth to be painful.

We offer several solutions to assist those with tooth sensitivity both during and after their dental visit. Let us know that you are experiencing sensitivity and we will do our best to provide you with a comfortable dental  experience.

Treatment of Gingivitis and Pyorrhea

Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gum tissues surrounding the teeth, and is an early stage of gum disease. If left untreated, gingivitis may progress to periodontitis, which can be a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Gingivitis can sometimes be painless and, therefore, people may be unaware they have it.

Pyorrhea disease is a severe form of periodontal disease resulting from prolonged gingivitis. If you do not treat the gingivitis properly, it can worsen and as it does so, you may be dealing with more intense pain and more severe destruction of the bone and tissue of the mouth. When the condition worsens, it can lead to pyorrhea. Visit us for an assessment and to learn more about gingivitis and good oral hygiene.

We offer in-office bleaching as well as a convenient and practical custom whitening kit that can be used within the privacy and comfort of your own home.
