Our Services

Picture
Cleaning and Prevention

Professional Dental Cleanings include removal of calculus, plaque and stains as well as teeth polishing. A comprehensive dental exam (with diagnostic x-rays if needed) evaluates gum tissue and surrounding bone. Oral cancer screenings are performed at each hygiene appointment. Our dental hygienists will also make recommendations where needed in your home care oral hygiene routine.

Scaling and root planing performed if needed.

Teeth Whitening is performed conservatively through a non invasive procedure of making custom bleach trays from impressions of your teeth.  The trays are filled with whitening solution and worn daily.

Sealants can be applied to teeth with deep grooves and pits to help prevent decay.

Fillings and Bonding

Composite (tooth colored) or amalgam fillings restore decayed areas in teeth.  Composite or Bonding is also used to restore chipped or misshapen teeth.

Crowns and Bridges

All Porcelain or porcelain over metal crowns cover existing tooth structure that has been damaged from cracks, large fillings or a root canal in the tooth.  Inlays and onlays are partial crowns and sometimes indicated to save as much tooth structure as possible.

Bridges are used to replace missing teeth.  Bridges are anchored to existing teeth then cemented permanently.

Implant Restoration

Dentures and Partials

A Partial denture, also known as a removable bridge, can also be used to replace missing teeth. A partial denture must have teeth remaining to attach to. Full dentures are a removable appliance that replace a full arch of missing teeth.

Veneers and Cosmetic Restoration

Veneers are strong, ceramic casings bonded to the front of teeth to cover discolored, misshapen, broken or slightly crooked teeth. Cosmetic restoration helps to improve a patient's smile.

TMJ Disorders

Temporomandibular joint disorder involves conditions affecting the temporomandibular joint, jaw muscles and nerves on either one or both sides of the head. Symptoms typically result in jaw, face, head and neck pain. Sometimes equilibration or night time appliances can greatly reduce the symptoms of TMJ disorders.

Emergency Appointments

We reserve time in our schedule each day for patient emergencies.
