HIGHLIGHTS

Our treatment philosophy emphasizes long term dental health along with the most natural, aesthetically pleasing appearance that is possible. We are proud of our long history of great results.

TREATMENTS

Porcelain Laminate Veneers are probably the most esthetic family dentistry means of creating a more pleasing and beautiful smile. They require a minimal amount of tooth reduction ( approximately .5 mm ) and are, therefore, a more conservative restoration than a crown. Porcelain veneers allow us to alter tooth position, shape, size and color. They are not the only alternative for all esthetic abnormalities but are truly a remarkable restoration when they are the dental treatment service of choice. Crowns: When a tooth is cracked, decayed, or damaged, a crown may need to be fitted onto the tooth. A crown is a permanent covering that fits over the original tooth. Crowns can be made of porcelain, gold and other metals. Porcelain crowns typically have the most realistic appearance. Crowns can whiten, reshape, and realign existing teeth, adding to a healthy and vibrant smile.

Composite filling (tooth colored): Dentists call natural looking white fillings, posterior composites. Until recently, dentists filled and sealed cavities exclusively using a silver and mercury amalgam. Unfortunately, these fillings (or restorations) often weaken teeth due to the large amount of the original tooth that has to be removed and have the disadvantage of causing the tooth to darken as they age. Modern dentistry has increasingly turned to composite fillings as a strong, safe and more natural looking alternative.
Teeth Whitening Services Regardless of how well you care for your teeth, it is inevitable that, over time, some yellowing or discoloration will occur. This gradual change can be caused by aging, substances that stain your teeth (such as coffee and tobacco), excessive fluoride, or the deterioration of a tooth's nerve. A tooth whitening treatment can be performed either as an at-home, dentist-supervised process or in the dentist's chair. While neither of these methods stops future discoloration, these treatments bring about whiter teeth and help create a more vibrant smile.

Dental Implant Services: For individuals who wish to replace missing teeth, dental implants may be an effective long-term solution. Implants provide greater structural support and last longer than either bridges or dentures. Dental Implants serve as the artificial root to which new teeth are bonded. They are typically constructed of titanium, a strong and safe material that effectively attaches to bone. The procedure to insert dental implants typically involve three steps: the implant insertion stage, osseointegration (the period of healing for the jawbone), and the attachment of the restoration or new tooth.

Dental Bridges are devices used to fill the space where a tooth has fallen out or been removed. A typical dental bridge consists of a pontic (a filler tooth) that is attached to two surrounding crowns (abutments). Once complete, this dental bridge structure is bonded into the mouth. Without the use of a bridge, spaces in the mouth from missing teeth can cause multiple teeth to shift, lead to occlusion (biting) and/or jaw problems, and may spur periodontal.

Computerized Digital Radiography Services: We use digital X-rays for faster, safer, better and smarter X-rays. This type of X-ray uses 90% less radiation, so you are safer. Images appear instantly and can be recalled instantly, magnified, colorized and reverse contrasted which allows us to make a more precise diagnosis and provide better care. This high tech diagnostic tool is one more example of how we are on the cutting edge of technology, providing you the finest treatment the science of dentistry has to offer.

Root Canal Therapy Services: Each of our teeth contains a long, thin strand of dental pulp – which provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves – that extends down to the tooth's root. If the pulp becomes infected or injured, the tooth's nerves die and often, without endodontic treatment, the tooth dies as well. Root canals are designed to save such damaged teeth. During the procedure (performed under anesthesia), a small opening is drilled into the tooth's crown and pulp chamber, diseased pulp is reshaped or removed, and the tooth is permanently sealed with a gold, tooth-colored, or porcelain crown.
