Our office offers composite (tooth-colored) restorations for teeth that have decayed or chipped.
Crowns and bridges are available in a number of materials. These restorations are permanently cemented in and will be made to look like your adjacent teeth.
Sometimes, a tooth may be non-restorable due to severe decay or have a hopeless prognosis. In these cases, we recommend extraction. We offer extraction procedures using local anesthesia. Wisdom teeth extractions will be determined on a case-by-case basis during your consultation.
In certain cases, bacteria enter the nerve of your tooth, indicating a need for a root canal. In most cases, teeth that have had root canals will need a crown placed afterwards.
Gum disease is very common in our population. During your exams, we measure your gums to determine the type of cleaning you need. In periodontal disease, we recommend Scaling and Root Planing, which is a deep cleaning. Anesthesia will be given during these appointments and we will recommend returning more frequently in order to maintain your gum health.
Dental implants are a very successful way of replacing missing teeth without affecting the health of any adjacent teeth. During your consultation, we will discuss if implants are the right option for you. The end result is permanent and esthetic.
There are several options to replace missing teeth. Removable options include dentures and partials. Dentures are for the edentulous patient, and partials utilize the remaining teeth in your mouth for retention.
If you are looking to change your smile, there are many different cosmetic options. Our office offers whitening, composite restorations, veneers, and crowns.
Veneers are a great way to repair minor problems with your teeth, such as staining, chips, gaps, or being misshapen. Dental veneers are cemented permanently.
Our office offers two options for whitening: take-home bleaching trays or in-office Zoom whitening. Whitening is a safe and effective way of brightening your smile.
Our office begins seeing children at the age of 3. We want to provide your child with a positive dental experience. We like to familiarize your child with our staff, the dentists, and the dental chair in order to ensure their comfort. We also offer nitrous oxide during procedures.
Nitrous oxide, or commonly known as laughing gas, is a safe way to manage dental anxiety. If you have a fear of the dentist, this might be an option for you. A mask is placed over your nose during the procedure and recovery is quick. You are able to drive yourself home after your appointment.
