Exams & Cleaning
Laying a foundation for good oral health starts with keeping routine appointments for checkups and cleanings. When patients visit our practice regularly, they greatly increase their likelihood of detecting oral disease as early as possible. Common oral health conditions such as gum disease, tooth decay, and even oral cancer, can be revealed in their earliest stages when patients receive bi-annual cleanings and checkups. In addition to oral examinations, professional cleanings are imperative to controlling the buildup of tartar (calcified plaque) along the gums and in between teeth. Dental cleanings are cost-effective and gentle
Fillings
Dental fillings replace parts of a tooth that has been damaged due to injury or decay. Also known as a dental restoration, a filling
preserves the integrity of the tooth and prevents further damage from cavities. Fillings can also restore the chewing surfaces of teeth that have become worn. Avoiding damage from decay or injury is preferable, but fillings are a good way to prevent the eventual loss of a tooth. Most cavities and fractures that are caught early are good candidates for restoration with fillings

Receiving a filling is not invasive and patients can choose white fillings, which look very natural and inconspicuous – especially when compared to dental restorations made from metal and amalgam
  
Extractions
Another important aspect of general dentistry is tooth extractions. While it ideal to keep biological teeth if they can be repaired with endodontic treatment (root canal therapy) and/or restorations, teeth that are a threat to oral health and beyond repair need to be extracted. A badly damaged or diseased tooth that cannot be saved can threaten the entire oral health system if it develops an abscess. An abscess is a painful and aggressive infection that begins at the root of a tooth and its effects can be problematic for neighboring tissues. In addition to removing diseased teeth, wisdom teeth are commonly extracted because they are often problematic when retained
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal, also called endodontic therapy, treats teeth that have become severely damaged, allowing the nerves and soft inner pulp of the tooth to become infected. Your dentist may also recommend a root canal if a tooth has become so damaged or decayed that future infection appears inevitable. Root canals have a reputation for being painful, but modern endodontic techniques and anesthetics make the procedure no more uncomfortable than having a tooth filled. After completing the root canal, the tooth will also need a crown or a filling to complete the restoration

Dental Crowns and Bridges
Crowns are a restorative procedure used to improve your tooth's shape or to strengthen a tooth. Crowns are most often used for teeth that are broken, worn, or have portions destroyed by tooth decay. A crown is cemented onto an existing tooth that usually covers the portion of your tooth above the gum line. These crowns are often made of porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of those materials

Crowns are needed when there is insufficient tooth strength remaining to hold a filling. Your crown will be custom made from a lab that uses your unique tooth impression. The crown fabrication process usually takes 2 weeks and during that time a temporary crown will be placed on your tooth

A bridge can be used to replace a missing tooth if there is a tooth behind and in front of your missing tooth. Three or more crowns are connected together and cemented on those teeth to give back the tooth that you had been missing. The procedure is just like getting a single tooth crown, but with two teeth involved

!With proper hygiene and care, crowns and bridges can last a lifetime!
Periodontal (Gum) Care
Periodontal disease is the inflammation of the gums and bone holding the teeth in, due to bacteria living beneath the gums. This is usually a painless disease until the very late stages where teeth are nearly hopeless. If left untreated, periodontal disease will cause the bone to resorb or disappear, the teeth will become loose and fall out, teeth may abscess, and halitosis or foul-smelling breath may occur. Flossing is the primary way to prevent periodontal disease and maintain a healthy mouth. The treatment for periodontal disease is simply to remove the bacteria. This is accomplished through "DEEP CLEANING" or "SCALING AND ROOT PLANING". In this procedure, the gums and teeth are numbed with anesthetic and the bacteria living on the teeth beneath the gums are removed. The gums then have an opportunity to reattach to the tooth in a healthy way in the absence of bacteria, giving the firm, pink healthy appearance we are working for. There are certain major risk factors for periodontal disease, including smoking, age, diabetes, family history of perio disease, among others
    
COSMETIC
The first thing most people notice about you is your smile. Advances in cosmetic dental care have made it possible for a dentist with the right training, qualifications, and expertise to completely redesign your smile. We offer a variety of advanced techniques to create the smile of your dreams. Call us today to learn how we can give you the smile you deserve. 
Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding is a cost-effective solution to conceal intrinsic tooth stains, gaps, chips, and cracks. Using composite resin, a tooth-colored compound, our dentists can help hide smile flaws with a natural, affordable treatment. Cosmetic bonding is minimally invasive and only requires an office visit or two


Professional Teeth Whitening
Over the counter, teeth whitening systems and products like toothpaste and strips often fall short because their whitening solutions do not contain high enough concentrations of bleaching agents to lift permanent stains. Fortunately, professional teeth whitening solutions are prescription strength. Moreover, advanced technology such as lasers are used to speed up and deepen the whitening process. Our practice utilizes Opalescence Boost®, which offers both in-office treatment and convenient take-home systems for achieving and maintaining a bright beautiful smile
Porcelain Veneers
Bonding porcelain veneers to teeth is a great way to address all types of dental imperfections. Porcelain veneers are often used to produce a complete smile makeover. These ultra-thin, tooth-shaped pieces of porcelain are cemented over the front sides of teeth to conceal damage and imperfections. After treatment, patients enjoy an improved smile that appears natural and lifelike
