Cleanings and Exams
Having your teeth cleaned and checked on a regular basis will help detect small problems before they become more extensive. We help every patient determine the frequency of these appointments, best suited for their individual needs.
Keeping up with current technology is especially beneficial when it comes to radiology. Using the most precise dental sensors on the market, we now have the ability to obtain the clearest picture possible, using the lowest amount of radiation. With this new unprecedented level of resolution we feel confident in a more sophisticated diagnosis.
Periodontal Scaling/Root Planing
In many advanced cases of gum disease, this type of deep cleaning below the gum line can restore a healthy environment in the mouth, without the need for surgery.
Composites/Tooth Colored Fillings
Small areas of damage and decay can be repaired with tooth colored restorations (fillings). We will also show you options that might be available for you to prevent recurrent restorative needs.
Beautiful smiles can be created with the help of porcelain veneers and bonding, often times without the need for bleaching and orthodontics.
Dental crowns restore teeth under a number of circumstances. The crown caps the tooth to protect and strengthen a broken or damaged tooth. Crowns have a long history of evolving materials being used to create an ideal restoration. With the latest technology, we can greatly improve the appearance of damaged teeth, while confidently using the strongest materials available.
Dental bridges are used to bridge a gap between damaged or missing teeth. False teeth are created and anchored in place to neighboring teeth, restoring proper function and aesthetics.
Dental Implant Restorations
Sometimes having a dental implant is the preferred choice to replace a missing tooth. After having an implant placed, we can create a perfect fitting crown to replace that void. Attention to custom abutment options and perfect shade matching make our implant restorations an impressive option without disturbing adjacent teeth.
TMJ pain is often a result from unconscious clenching and grinding. This common problem can lead to costly repairs of broken and fractured teeth. An appropriate biteguard can be fabricated to treat your pain and other TMJ related issues.
We fabricate and fit FDA approved TAP appliances to be worn while sleeping. This oral appliance has been proven effective in treating mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.
Whether it is for a special occasion or for any average day, our professional tooth whitening service bleaches the teeth to restore natural tooth color to its original brilliance and beyond.
