We focus on family and cosmetic dentistry. We see both adults and kids.
There are many benefits to maintaining a healthy mouth, such as the prevention of heart disease. Without routine dental care, plaque builds up on your teeth and gums and can lead to periodontal disease, making you more vulnerable to heart disease, clogged arteries, and even strokes. The bottom line is that good oral care is imperative to your overall well being. Be sure to come see us at least every six months to ensure that your oral health is at its best. Comprehensive exams and digital X-rays are usually covered 100% by your insurance.
We use the most modern x-ray technology available today. Because our X-ray machines are digital, your radiation exposure is reduced by about 90 percent.
FACT: Digital X-ray has 90% less radiation exposure than regular X-rays.
Regular teeth cleaning treatments are mainly done to help prevent gum diseases and cavities. The procedure removes plague and tartar around each tooth, which results in less cavities. Our teeth cleaning treatment involves removing the plaque, polishing all the teeth, and applying fluoride if needed. This treatment usually takes an hour. No shots are needed for this. And your insurance usually covers 100% of this treatment fee.
Deep teeth cleaning becomes necessary when you're beginning to have gum disease, gingivitis. Gum disease causes breakdown of the bone, and eventually causes the loss of teeth. Deep cleaning uses a procedure called "root planing". Root planing is the process of smoothening the root surfaces and removing any infected tooth structure.
Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. The sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars) where decay occurs most often.
This is done when parts of the tooth have been damaged by tooth decay or have fractured. The treatment involves removing all the decay and sealing the hole in the tooth with materials to protect the remaining tooth from further decay. Once it's done, the tooth is pretty much back to normal.
There are a few materials that are commonly used for fillings. We mostly use for the composite resins (white fillings) or porcelain now to match with your tooth color. The other type of material is amalgam (silver metallic filling).
This treatment is the last step in preventing the tooth being extracted (pulled out). This will allow you to keep your natural tooth. Basically, the tooth nerves are removed, so that tooth will no longer have pain. It'll have to be protected either with filling or a crown.
Some teeth are extracted because they are severely decayed; others may have advanced periodontal disease, or have broken in a way that cannot be repaired. Other teeth may need removal because they are poorly positioned in the mouth (such as impacted teeth), or in preparation for orthodontic treatment. We try really hard to save your tooth. Taking it out is not the best option.
A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left, attach a bridge, and protect a weak tooth from breaking. It can also restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.
Because we guarantee it for 5 years, we use the best materials. We spend more time than average to make sure everything fits perfectly, so that your bites feel as natural as your original teeth. And we take the time to glaze it in-house to make sure the color matches with your natual teeth. This is how our crowns stand out.
If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.
Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework
A dental bridge spans the gap where a missing tooth once was, filling the space with a synthetic tooth. Like a bridge over a river, most dental bridges need support at either end, although cantilever bridges are an exception. Fitting a bridge requires reshaping the abutment teeth and capping them with crowns to hold the bridge securely.
You don’t have to live with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, poorly shaped or crooked. A veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct the cards you were dealt or the results of an injury and ensure you have a beautiful smile. Porcelain Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are strong and virtually impossible to distinguish from actual teeth. We guarantee our veneers for 5 years, no questions asked.
Invisalign straightens teeth with a series of clear, virtually invisible, custom-molded aligners. These aligners replace the metal wires and brackets. And, unlike metal braces of the past, these clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth.
Everybody loves a bright, white smile, and there are a variety of products and procedures available to help you improve the look of yours. We offer in-office and take-home solutions that can dramatically enhance the impact of your smile. We use ZOOM! laser whitening to achieve a whiter and brighter smile. It is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results. In only 45 minutes your teeth will be significantly whiter, as much as 6 to 8 shades.
We also do deep bleaching, which is a 2 visit treatment that takes care of stains that ZOOM! and BriteSmile can't take care of. The deep bleaching treatment can restore tetracycline stains.
