Prevention - Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis oral cancer check and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth.

Crowns

You can have a new smile with all-porcelain crowns. This can be done in just one appointment with no return appointments and no temporaries. A crown is a protective covering that is bonded or cemented onto your tooth. A crown may be recommended for a tooth that has a large filling, a root canal or a fracture. Crowns are quality restorations and are an excellent investment in your long-term dental health.

Veneers

Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth. Veneers are an excellent remedy for chipped, cracked, spaced, stained or misaligned teeth. Dramatic results can be achieved in as few as 2 appointments. Veneers are considered long-term restorations that strengthen, protect and enhance the beauty of your smile.

Bridges

A bridge is simply 3 or more crowns linked together. A bridge is recommended to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A bridge helps provide a continuous chewing surface, keeps teeth from drifting out of position, protects teeth and improve aesthetics.

Dental Implants
We will work with an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone. Following a period of healing, it will act much like the root of a tooth over which a crown will be placed. Implants can support a single crown, long span bridges and are often used when rehabilitating an entire dentition. They are considered long term restorations and provide excellent results that are comfortable, natural looking and high functioning.

Invisalign or Clear Correct Orthodontics

One of the most innovative advances in dentistry is the ability to straighten your teeth without traditional metal brackets. We use a series of clear, plastic, removable "aligners," which are computer generated to gently and progressively alter the position of your teeth until they are correctly aligned. Our patients are seen smiling as much during treatment as after treatment.
This is a simple alternative to braces. No wires, no brackets.

Teeth Whitening
Your teeth become stained naturally as a result of the food and drink that you consume. Dental Whitening uses an ingredient to effectively lift the stain from deep within your enamel. The result is a whiter, more youthful smile! We offer 2 methods of this popular treatment. Our in-office system using a state-of-the-art activation light yields results in about an hour. Our convenient take home system can be used during the day or night and yields maximum results in about 7-10 days.

Tooth Colored Fillings: Resin
Tooth-colored fillings that are light cures to match your teeth.

Periodontal Treatment

You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year or two since your last cleaning, it may be possible that addition treatment may be done. This may include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).

Mouth Guards
Whether you are an athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
