These procedures enhance your smile.
Restoring your smile to its natural luster. People with most types of discoloration can achieve lighter teeth from either the “ ZOOM In Office Whitening” or “At Home Whitening.” The type of stain you have will affect how much whitening you will experience.
When activated by a special light, the whitening process is accelerated to provide dramatic results. It is very important to continue to have your regular cleanings and check-up appointments every 6 months. This keeps your teeth the brightest they can be.
Veneers can help improve the appearance of
front teeth that have permanent stains or discoloration and
are unable to be whitened, small gaps between the front teeth,
chipped, worn or eroded teeth, or to fix poorly shaped or
slightly crooked teeth.
These are fillings that are designed to match
the color of your teeth. After the decayed portion of the
tooth is removed, the dentist places a tooth-colored composite
material onto the prepared surface, that is then cured with
a special light and polished.
Thorough brushing & flossing help remove food particles
and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth. Pits & fissures,
however, are places that are extremely difficult to clean.
Most cavities form in these pits and fissure areas, and
permanent molars are extremely susceptible to this form
of decay. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas by “sealing
out” plaque and food.
Sealants are easy to apply and it takes only a few minutes
to seal each tooth. The teeth to be sealed are cleaned,
conditioned and then painted with the sealants. Sealants
hold up well under the force of normal chewing and will
be checked during regular dental visits.
Braces are not just for kids anymore. Many adults who have
suffered from crowded, unsightly teeth are electing to correct
their smile. We offer "Invisalign" invisible braces.
They are used to correct cases with rotated teeth, tipped
teeth, and minor relapse cases. If there is enough space the
correction can be made with just resets.
Restorative dentistry is the process of covering up or
capping a tooth, strengthening or improving its appearance.
Crowns are placed for a number reasons:
* Not enough tooth remaining to support a filling
* Attach a bridge
* Protect weak teeth from fracturing
* Restore fractured teeth
* Cover badly shaped or discolored teeth
* Cover a dental implant
Materials used range from gold, porcelain, ceramic or
These things done every day can
help you have a beautiful & healthy
* Brush your teeth thoroughly twice or more a day
* Clean between your teeth using floss once a day
* Eat a well-balanced diet
* Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings
Even if you brush and floss every day, you may not completely
remove plaque, especially around the gum line. This can
create toxins which irritate the gums and bone and the
bacteria can cause periodontal disease.
If you notice any of the following signs, see your dentist
*Gums that bleed easily. Red, swollen
or tender gums.
*Gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
*Pus between the teeth and gums when the gums are pressed.
*Persistent bad breath or bad taste.
*Permanent teeth that are loose or separating.
*Any change in the way your teeth fit together when you
*Any changes in the fit of partial dentures.
If your dentist determines you have a periodontal disease
he will prescribe appropriate treatment or refer you to
A root canal is usually necessary when the nerve is damaged
or diseased. This damage can come from bacteria from a cavity,
gum disease, infection or injury.
A root canal is done through a small opening in the crown
of the tooth and the pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned
out. Once the tooth is cleaned, the tooth is medicated
and temporarily sealed.
The dentist will determine if the tooth will need a crown
Oral surgery is the extraction of
a tooth. Having a tooth pulled doesn’t have to
be traumatic. An anesthetic is used to numb the area.
The fear of losing our teeth is something many of us experience.
Dental implants are the permanent way for you to replace your
missing teeth. Dental implants can provide a permanent and
esthetically pleasing alternative to bridgework or dentures.
For some people, dental implants offer a smile that looks and
feels very natural. Surgically placed below the gums, implants
fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement
teeth, bridges, or a denture.
