Teeth should look good, feel good, and last a lifetime!
Your first visit includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. To complete a comprehensive evaluation, we will also take any necessary x-rays for diagnosis of decay or other conditions affecting the roots of your teeth.
We can provide most of your periodontal care directly in our office. A routine cleaning twice a year is adequate for many patients, but we also perform scaling and root planing as well as periodontal maintenance for patients with more specialized needs.
Few procedures can achieve positive changes in appearance as quickly and easily as teeth whitening. The materials we use are highly effective but very gentle. Because the level of whiteness achieved is influenced by the current level of staining on your teeth, we recommend the procedure after a thorough cleaning and in conjunction with your normal preventive routine.
Teeth that are fractured, have large fillings, or are severely damaged by decay can be restored with crowns using a variety of materials that are strong and esthetically pleasing. Crowns not only strengthen and protect your remaining natural tooth structure, they can also improve the appearance of your smile.
With Invisalign, crooked teeth can be straightened with a modem solution that is clear and invisible. A series of removable "aligners" are progressively fitted to your teeth to gradually and effectively correct imperfections in the alignment of your teeth.
Dental veneers are natural looking porcelain shells bonded to your teeth to reshape, align, and whiten your smile.
We can place tooth-colored fillings which are bonded to match your teeth as well as silver-colored fillings which can be more durable in certain situations.
Dental implants utilize a titanium post integrated directly into the jawbone which act as "roots" for the permanent placement of single crowns, bridge, or dentures. Implants offer the most natural replacement option for missing teeth in terms of both comfort and overall appearance.
For missing teeth, we can fabricate well fitting, esthetically pleasing full and partial dentures. We are a general dental office, but in many cases, we can perform root canal therapy or extractions.
Whether you are an serious athlete or casual sports participant, you should wear a mouth guard to protect your teeth. If you grind your teeth while you sleep or clench your teeth during times of stress, a bite guard will help reduce symptoms of TMJ and prevent wear. We custom make mouth guards in both soft and hard materials.
