Restorations

Crowns - When a tooth requires more than a filling, we may recommend a crown as the best restoration to save your tooth. Crowns are durable, cosmetic, and the best way to keep bacteria and decay out of your tooth. We offer all porcelain, Zirconia, porcelain hybrid, and Gold crowns.  We prefer that you choose your crown on the preferences you have with esthetics and lifespan, not based on cost.  As such, we do not charge more for any particular crown.

Veneers - Veneers conceal chips, stains, cracks, and other tooth imperfections. They can also correct and straighten slight alignment problems if orthodontics is not a viable option.  These customized porcelain shells slide over the front of teeth, increasing durability. Veneers are the most natural-looking dental restoration available, and are an excellent alternative to crowns for cosmetic cases.

 

 

 

Bridges -Fixed prosthetics are long-lasting, comfortable, non-removable solutions for missing or lost teeth.  Bridges fill in gaps left by missing teeth and restore chewing function and esthetics.

Fillings - We place tooth-colored white composite resin fillings as opposed to the alternative amalgam (silver) fillings. This is an excellent cosmetic option for those patients who do not want the look of silver in their mouths. These types of procedures are the best for small to moderate sized cavities.


Oral Surgery

 

 

 Dental Implants - Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth or are used to attach fixed prosthetics to the mouth. Implants can last forever if the patient is compliant with proper maintenance and outstanding oral care.  To be a good candidate for implants, a patient must have healthy gums and bone levels. We are committed to providing the highest quality of dental implants for our patients. Therefore, we only use the leading manufacturers in the industry with the newest innovations.  

 

 

Wisdom tooth extractions – Typically done between the ages of 15-18 since the roots are still developing and therefore smaller and easier to remove. For an evaluation with our oral surgeon please call our office.  

Sedation - IV sedation or nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available upon request or recommendation.

Digital X-rays -  For both the dental provider and patient, digital x-rays improve the way we can view and understand teeth. With up to 90% less radiation and available for viewing almost instantly, it is a safer and more efficient way to practice. We will spend as much time as you need explaining the evidence on the image, such that you can clearly see and understand any problems.  

Prophylaxis –  Your cleaning will be performed by a registered dental hygienist.  They will help you understand your gum health and achieve optimal oral health.

 

Whitening Kit – Teeth Whitening can dramatically change the appearance of your teeth.  Our whitening kits are custom made by a dental technician, and include trays for your upper and lower teeth.  The kit includes 4 syringes of professional strength whitening gel.
