Cleaning & 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.

We offer two methods of whitening your smile. One is an in-office same day procedure known as zoom that will achieve up to 7 shades lighter in just one session. Perfect for special events when you need those immediate results. We also offer an at-home bleach tray system. If you are interested in either one of these systems, schedule an appointment for a no obligation consult or ask your dentist next time you are in our office.

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

Fillings & Bonding

Composite (tooth colored) or amalgam fillings restore decayed areas in teeth.

Composite or Bonding is also used to restore chipped or misshapen teeth.

Veneers & Cosmetics

Dental veneers are thin, custom shells of tooth-colored materials made to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your appearance. These shells are bonded to the front of the teeth changing their color, shape, size, or length.

These veneers are fitted to each patient individually as to ensure a proper fit and desired appearance.

We use high quality labs that match shades at the lab as necessary ensuring your smile looks like your smile.

Other cosmetic dentistry procedures include composite bonding, teeth whitening, and dental implants.

Crowns & 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.

Dentures & Partials

Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures are available -- complete and partial

Complete dentures are used when all the teeth have been removed and can come as either "conventional" or "immediate." Conventional dentures are ready about 8-12 weeks after the teeth have been removed and tissue has healed. Immediate dentures are pre-made and are ready to be placed as soon as the teeth are removed

Partials are removable dentures used to replace teeth when one or more natural teeth remain in the jaw. They are made of replacement teeth attached to a pink-or gum colored base that fits into the spaces left by the missing teeth.

Implant Restorations

For patients with missing teeth, dental implants are the restorative option that most closely mimics the feeling and stability of natural teeth. These durable prostheses are made of titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jaw. These implants act like the roots of a tooth. The implants can then be topped with a range of different restorations, like a dental crown or implant-retained bridge or denture.

TMJ Disorders

TMJ Disorder can refer to any problem affecting the temporomandibular joints. Symptoms of TMJ include:

Jaw clicking, popping, or locking
Headaches or earaches
Pain when mouth is opened widely
Tenderness of jaw muscles

Symptoms of TMJ can be treated or alleviated by means such as orhodontics, the use of bite plates or splints, or other methods that can be discussed with your dentist.
