Everyone wants a bright simile with correctly aligned teeth, but few people enjoy the confidence that comes with this trait. Fortunately, we can help you achieve this goal with a number of different cosmetic dentistry options, such as Invisalign, teeth whitening and dental veneers for the smile you have always dreamed of having.
Crowns & Bridges
For those with advanced tooth decay or who have lost teeth, we can help by installing a crown or bridge that fills the gap where a tooth should be or helps to make whole a tooth with a large cavity. It is important to take care of such problems early to prevent irreversible damage.
Humans have been engaged in the practice of dentistry for approximately 9,000 years, and the field has made enormous advancements in technology in the past century. It is now possible not only to extract a rotting tooth but to repair damaged teeth, prevent decay and give people beautiful smiles despite serious issues of misalignment.
While in many cases we treat advanced tooth decay or missing teeth with bridges and crowns, veneers or other approaches, in some cases the best solution is to manufacture a customized set of dentures, which essentially gives you a brand new set of teeth so that you can eat the foods you want, maintain proper facial structure and enjoy the confidence of having a healthy and bright smile.
Probably most people's least favorite reason to go to the dentist is to have a tooth pulled out, especially if it is a wisdom tooth, but we do everything we can to make the experience as comfortable and painless as possible for our patients. Don't delay a dental extraction, as this could allow the problem to grow far worse.
Our office provides a warm and welcoming environment for patients of all ages, from small children to the elderly and everyone in between. We want to help your entire family enjoy optimal oral health and the confidence that comes with having a bright and beautiful smile to greet the world.
Dental fillings are among the most common types of dental restoration techniques, and a majority of people have at least one filling in their mouths. We use tooth-colored fillings so that you can have a cavity repaired as close to its original condition as possible and not have to live with self-consciousness over having unsightly metal in teeth.
We like to begin seeing our child patients as early as possible and certainly by the time they reach school age so that we can see how their dental health is developing and begin teaching them proper techniques for preserving the health of their teeth. Pediatric dentistry plays an important role in setting the stage for a future of oral health.
Recovery from a root canal, tooth extraction or other major procedure does not have to be a long and difficult experience, provided that you follow certain simple guidelines and instructions for ensuring the optimal results from the procedure and the smoothest recovery possible.
On the day of your dental surgery, it is important to arrange to have a responsible adult accompany you to our office in order to assist you with traveling home and setting up a place where you can rest and recover from the operation. Read on to learn about other guidelines you should follow to ensure the success of your surgery.
How many times have you heard the phrase, "I'd rather have a root canal than..."? This widely feared procedure doesn't have to be a traumatic experience thanks to the fact that we employ anesthetic techniques, which minimize the pain and discomfort felt by the patient, making it possible for you to handle the problem before it gets any worse.
Teeth Whitening & Bleaching
Is your smile no longer as white as you would like? Many elements of today's diet - such as daily soda and frequent red wine consumption - make it difficult to keep a bright smile, and few people brush as often as they know they ought to in order to maintain good dental health. Fortunately, we can help you obtain the bright, white and shiny smile you desire with bleaching and teeth whitening.
By placing a thin layer of material over the surface of a tooth, it is possible to give a patient a brand new smile with bright, white and correctly aligned teeth. Veneers are effective at hiding crooked or chipped teeth, as well as restoring the sparkle of your smile.
