Prevention, maintenance and health are key goals of our practice. Our office has two hygienists on staff that will help you with maintaining good oral hygiene and periodontal treatment.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Composite resin, plastic materials (glass and resin) that is used for fillings and to repair defects in the teeth. They match the natural tooth color so it is difficult to distinguish them from your natural teeth.
Our office offers two different types of whitening systems: Zoom: The Zoom! In office whitening system is a revolutionary tooth whitening procedure. In just over an hour, your teeth will be dramatically whiter. At home: Individual bleaching trays will be made for you to use at home. These products contain peroxide that comes in several different concentrations (10%, 16%, 22%). This procedure usually takes about 1-2 weeks if done daily.
Once upon a time, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you'd probably lose that tooth. Today, with a special dental procedure called a root canal therapy you may save that tooth. Inside each tooth is the pulp, which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth; it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don't remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it. After the dentist removes the pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then your dentist places a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger.
Porcelain veneers are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that are bonded onto the front side of teeth so to create a cosmetic improvement for a tooth.
Porcelain veneers are routinely used as a way to make cosmetic changes for teeth to close gaps between teeth,mask worn or discolored teeth, chipped, or misaligned teeth. With porcelain veneers, your smile can be transformed in as little as two visits.
Crowns & Bridges
Crown: This procedure can strengthen and support a tooth with a large filling or has had root canal therapy. It can be used to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from breaking or restore one that’s already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped. It is also used to cover a dental implant.
Bridge: If you are missing one or more teeth you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. This procedure helps maintain the shape of your face as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing the missing teeth with a bridge.
The laser is used for caries removal, cavity preparation (often without anesthesia), soft tissue surgery and cosmetic gum contouring.
Replaces missing teeth lost from periodontal disease, tooth decay or injury. Dentures will benefit your appearance and your health. Models are made of the patient’s jaws and the patient returns to remove the remaining teeth and the denture is placed.
Dental implants are specially designed and manufactured titanium fixtures that replace teeth that have been lost. Implants are one of the greatest advances in modern dental medicine.
Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework.
