Everything dentistry, all under one roof.
Dentistry for All the Family
Crowns are used for many purposes, including to support a large filling, protect a weak tooth, fix a broken one, or restore missing teeth with a dental implant. Discolored or misshapen teeth can also be covered by crowns to enhance their appearance.
Dental bridges help fix gaps from missing teeth. They’re similar to dentures and help make a smile whole again using artificial teeth. Bridges are made from various materials, including porcelain, gold, and alloys.
There are options for removable or fixed bridges based on your needs. Removable bridges can be taken out to clean by patients, whereas a fixed bridge should be taken care of like normal teeth and only a dentist can remove it. A bridge can also be implanted to the jaw or under the gums.
Missing teeth or a damaged smile beyond repair seriously affect self-esteem, but dental implants help patients feel whole again. They help improve oral health plus restore the ability to eat, speak, and smile naturally. Implants are the top way to replace missing teeth with a comfortable, permanent solution.
Dental fillings fill cavities and repair cracked or broken teeth. The material options for fillings include gold, porcelain, silver amalgam, and composite resin. Composite fillings are the most commonly used type.
These tooth-colored fillings are discreet and match your natural tooth color.
It’s a quick procedure but requires a few extra steps with multiple layers and a special light to dry and harden the area around the filling. Fillings safely remove tooth decay, seal the tooth, and prevent cavity damage.
Removable dental replacements, AKA dentures, are a common way to restore a smile. Denture options include complete dentures for a full mouth of missing teeth and partial dentures for replacing just a few.
Based on your budget, conventional and immediate dentures help restore a smile. We make conventional dentures after removing the teeth and place them 8-12 weeks later. On the other hand, we make immediate dentures in advance and position them as soon as we complete the extraction.
Beautiful teeth are one of the most sought-after features in cosmetic dentistry, and we help make it a reality. Through minor adjustments or major changes, we help you feel good about your smile and often improve oral health, too.
People from all backgrounds and professions appreciate a confident, white, and straight smile. Customized treatments correct issues such as discoloration, chips, gaps, or irregularities. Some common cosmetic treatments include bonding, veneers, bleaching, reshaping, and crowns.
Veneers are thin shells custom-made to cover the front side of teeth in order to cover stains, chips, decay, or irregularities. A dental technician uses your impressions to make your veneer shells that look and feel natural.
The cosmetic procedure requires light enamel removal, so veneers are typically permanent and irreversible. To help prolong the effects of your smile makeover, we recommend avoiding extra hard and food-staining foods or drinks. You’ll love the results of your new, celebrity-worthy smile.
Options for teeth whitening usually include whitening toothpastes, at-home bleaching, and in-office bleaching. Of course, effectiveness, safety, and results vary greatly between products, so contact us directly. We’ll help you choose the best option for your smile goals.
An extraction is performed to remove a tooth because of disease, crowding, or damage. When tooth extractions are required, the area around the tooth is numb and the tooth is comfortably and safely removed.
Expect a smooth process from start to finish. We’ll teach you how to care for the extraction area at home. A blood clot replaces the removed tooth root to promote healing, so avoid activities like smoking, drinking through a straw, or eating foods that aggravate the area.
A root canal is a procedure that repairs and saves a badly decayed or infected tooth. Although normal tooth decay may become increasingly worse and lead to a root canal, oftentimes, blunt trauma may cause the tooth to die as well.
Our dentist removes the dead nerve from the tooth and then seals it off to prevent another infection or abscess from forming around the tooth. If the nerve is not removed, then the infection will continue to climb deeper into your gums, often causing swelling, pain, and discomfort.
