Preventive Care

The most important but most overlooked aspect of dentistry is preventive care. Learning the proper techniques for home care will help you save time and money by allowing you to effectively decrease your incidence of dental decay and periodontal disease. Our team will review the proper home care aids and techniques to help keep your oral cavity at optimal health.

Crown and Bridge

Broken teeth, teeth with large defective restorations, and missing teeth can be restored with crowns and bridges. It allows us to restore the form and function of structurally compromised or missing teeth.

Dentures and Partials

When multiple teeth have been lost in multiple areas, we can use a removable appliance to restore function and esthetics. It is often the best option when time and finances are prohibitory.

Root Canals

When teeth are broken, have extensive decay or have deep fractures the nerve inside of the tooth may become infected. Root canal therapy can treat the infection and allow the tooth to be restored with a crown and function normally.

Implant Restorations

Implants allow replacement of teeth without disturbing adjacent teeth and replacement of teeth in areas where bridges are not an option. We’ll place an implant where the root of the missing tooth was and, after integration (3-4 months), you’ll return to our office to have a crown placed to restore proper function and esthetics.

Tooth Colored Fillings

Decayed teeth can be restored with tooth colored, mercury free bonded restorations. By chemically bonding the restoration to the remaining tooth structure, we can provide an added level of structural integrity to the tooth while still maintaining esthetics.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Whether you want to subtly tweak your smile or are interested in a complete cosmetic dental rehabilitation we can tailor a treatment plan just for you. By using metal free restorations, we can change shade, contour, replace missing teeth, restore broken, chipped, crowded or spaced teeth. Feel free to ask about an esthetic consult during your routine or new patient visit.

Tooth Whitening

One of the least expensive and most beneficial ways to brighten your smile is by tooth whitening. We offer in office whitening and home whitening. You also receive the home whitening trays when you have you completed the in office whitening. As long as there are no structural changes with your teeth, you can use the trays to touch up your whitening periodically.
