fillings

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Tooth decay and cavities are one of the most common dental problems that people face. After we remove tooth decay, a cavity (misshapen area) is often left behind. To strengthen the tooth’s structure and improve the tooth’s appearance, we’ll use composite resin, tooth-colored fillings. We mold the putty-like material to reshape the tooth and cure it with a special blue light. We’ll carefully match the shade of your filling to your tooth so that it blends in seamlessly.

crowns

SAME-DAY CROWNS

Traditional crowns can take anywhere from one to two weeks to complete. We understand that many patients don’t want to wait that long to repair their teeth. Our office utilizes CEREC technology to design, fabricate, and bond crowns in place in a single appointment. CEREC is an advanced dental technology that has digital smile preview software for designing custom crowns and an on-site milling unit to create the crowns in-house. Our CEREC crowns can be used to:


  • Cover a Misshapen or Discolored Tooth
  • Protect a Cracked or Broken Tooth
  • Replace a Missing Tooth with Implants
  • Stabilize a Tooth After Root Canal Therapy
  • Strengthen a Tooth with a Large Filling
bridges

Dental Bridges

Bridges are one of the most affordable tooth replacement solutions for patients missing one tooth or multiple teeth in a row, but don’t worry, they are still a high-quality, natural-looking restoration. Bridges essentially look like a connected row of teeth. They have crowns on the ends and teeth in the middle that replace the missing teeth. The crowns bond to existing teeth or attach to dental implants on either side of the gap to securely hold the bridge in place.

dentures

Full & Partial Dentures

We craft full and partial dentures for patients missing most or all of their teeth. Our realistic-looking, modern dentures have gum-colored bases and false teeth that are molded to look and function like real teeth. Depending on your dental needs, lifestyle, and budget, we can design your denture to fit snugly on the gum line with the help of an adhesive or add attachments to your denture so that it can snap onto dental implants.

dental implants

Start-to-Finish Dental Implants

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that mimic natural tooth roots. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and provide a foundation for replacement teeth to connect with at the gum line. Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement method that can be paired with crowns, bridges, and dentures depending on how many teeth you’re missing.

periodontal therapy

Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal (gum) disease is an infection of the soft tissues that can wreak havoc on the gums and start to eat away at the jawbone. The sooner gum disease is treated, the easier it is to reverse its effects. We perform scaling and root planings (deep cleanings) to remove any built-up plaque and tartar at or below the gumline and inside any pockets formed from gum disease. Then, we’ll smooth out the tooth roots to help your gums reattach to your teeth. We also place an ARESTIN antibiotic treatment into the pockets to kill the infection and reduce pocket size. For more advanced stages of gum disease, we utilize an advanced soft tissue laser to remove disease gum tissue and generate new gum growth.

root canal

Root Canal Therapy

We know that the term “root canal” causes many people to feel fearful. However, it is actually a common, stress-free procedure. If you are suffering from a deep infection or have severe tooth damage that is causing you pain and discomfort, a root canal can save your natural tooth and help prevent the need for an extraction down the road. We’ll make a small entry point to access the tooth’s roots, remove the diseased pulp, clean out the tooth, and fill it in to preserve it.

tooth extractions

Tooth Extractions

We always strive to keep our patients’ natural teeth if at all possible. We’ll only perform tooth extractions if they are absolutely necessary. The most common reason for an extraction is wisdom teeth issues. Many patients don’t have enough room for their wisdom teeth, which can cause damage to existing teeth and infection. We perform gentle tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth removal to help our patients maintain great oral health and safeguard their other teeth.
