Preventive care In many ways this is the most important care we provide. The best way to treat dental problems is to prevent them from happening. As you would expect, preventive care includes regular professional cleanings along with good home care. But it also means a focus on education, early detection and, when necessary, quick intervention to avoid minor issues from becoming major ones.
Periodontal Therapy Healthy gums, including the soft tissue and bone that surrounds your teeth, is one of the most important elements of dental health. Ensuring that the foundation that surrounds your teeth remains stable and healthy is vital to maintaining a healthy smile.
Tooth fillings A filling repairs and restores the surface of a tooth that has been damaged by decay, fracture, or wear. A dental filling strengthens the tooth. If tooth decay is not repaired at its early stages, it will worsen and additional or alternative dental treatments may be necessary..
Dental crowns A crown is a tooth-shaped covering for a tooth that is badly damaged or decayed. Crowns can give support to a weak tooth, help support a bridge, or cover up a badly chipped or cracked tooth, restoring that tooth to its proper form and function. Crowns can be made of ceramic (porcelain) material, ceramic with a high noble metal substructure, or full or partial gold.
Root canals Left untreated, sometimes decay may progress into the pulp of a tooth. A root canal procedure – the cleaning, prepping and sealing of the tooth’s root system – can usually be accomplished in one or two appointments and enable long-term retention of the tooth.
Tooth whitening We offer a few different options for getting your teeth back to a whiter smile. Ask us about them and you can decide which will work best for you.
Porcelain veneers For teeth that are stained, chipped, or crooked, porcelain veneers are often the best remedy. Veneers are a more conservative treatment than crowns. They can hide stains and chips and can correct misalignments as well. Veneers can create a straight, white, beautiful smile in weeks.
Bonding Bonding can be a relatively simple solution for repairing discolored, cracked, or chipped teeth, or for filling in gaps between teeth. With bonding we apply a composite resin to teeth and smooth it into the appropriate shape, color and texture.
Orthodontics (Clear braces) Invisalign® consists of a series of removable custom-made aligner trays that are completely invisible. This means that no one will even know you are straightening your teeth. You can eat, drink, and floss throughout treatment without the problems associated with traditional braces. The Invisalign® method is also much more comfortable than wire braces.
Dental bridges Dental bridges are designed to fill gaps created by missing teeth. A bridge often consists of two crowns that fit on the teeth on either side of the gap and an artificial tooth that fits perfectly into the empty space between. This creates a uniform row of natural-looking teeth. Bridges are non-removable and usually composed of a combination of metal and ceramic (porcelain) materials.
Dental implants If you are missing one or more teeth, dental implants can provide you with a natural-looking, highly functional alternative to bridges. Dental implants use a surgically placed “titanium root” capped by a natural-looking aesthetic crown.
Dentures Dentures, either full or partial, are removable restorations, sometimes with hidden clasps that utilize the remaining natural teeth or implants for retention and stability.
