Dental implants have been available for the past 50 years or so but there have been significant changes to design and technology that have greatly improved their success making implants one of the premier solutions for missing teeth.
A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures or sometimes to improve the color and esthetics of a tooth.
Teeth whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment used to change the color of natural tooth enamel and is an ideal way to enhance the brilliance of your smile. Think it of almost like a washing machine for your teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of our teeth to change their appearance and function. They can be used to change the size of a tooth, the color of a tooth or to bridge a gap and close space between teeth.
Root Canal Therapy is when the nerves and vascular systems, called the pulp, in the center of your tooth are removed, cleaned, and then filled.
Let’s face it, for some people being in a dental environment is just not a fun experience! That’s why we provide conscious oral sedation dentistry for those who want an anxiety-free dental visit.
Permanent crowns can be made of metal, all porcelain ceramic, or a combination of porcelain fused to metal. The strongest ones are the metal and porcelain fused to metal, but the all-ceramic type are the most esthetically pleasing.
A bridge unlike a partial is fixed in your mouth. It does not come in an out and works great to replace missing teeth.
There can be many reasons why teeth need to be removed. A common one is because of tooth decay rendering the tooth non-restorable. Sometimes with baby teeth we need to remove them if they are preventing the eruption of permanent teeth or have large cavities.
Digital X-rays have been integral to the way we practice dentistry. Real world application – you get exposed to 50% LESS radiation!
At your first visit our goal is do a comprehensive risk based assessment of your oral health. Looking at 4 major categories: Gums and Bone, Teeth, Function and your Esthetics we will tailor our treatment plan to your specific needs.
What if you could have metal braces without the metal? That’s what researchers out of California came up with when they envisioned Invisalign in 1999.
Dental emergencies can often be one of the most challenging parts of dentistry but they are also the most rewarding as well. As heath care providers it is our job to treat people in a compassionate manner and do everything we can to alleviate the source of the emergency.
