Cosmetic dentistry is an approach to dentistry that recognizes that the appearance of your smile is an important part of its function. We always work to preserve the appearance of your smile and offer procedures that can improve your smile’s appearance.
Porcelain veneers can whiten your teeth, close gaps in your smile, reshape small teeth, repair chipped teeth, and fix many other cosmetic complaints. They are thin facades of highly durable, advanced ceramic bonded to the visible surface of your teeth.
Invisalign is an approach to orthodontics that uses clear plastic aligners instead of metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth. You won’t have a brace face smile, won’t have to clean the wires, and can keep eating all your favorite foods. And now Invisalign is faster than ever!
Six Month Smiles lives up to its name: most people can get results in about six months using this approach. It uses specially concealed brackets and wires, but uses them smarter than traditional orthodontics so your braces aren’t just nearly invisible, they’re faster, too.
Teeth whitening is used to remove common stains on teeth, such as food stains, beverage stains, tobacco stains, and more. It works on most types of stains, but if teeth are discolored because of other reasons than staining, it may not be effective.
Teeth bonding is a quick and economical alternative to porcelain veneers. It can address many of the same problems, such as tooth gaps, chipped teeth, worn teeth, or small teeth. Although it doesn’t last as long as veneers, many people are happy with the results.
Dental crowns are sheaths that fit over teeth, completely covering the portion of the tooth above the gums. They are used to repair teeth and improve their appearance when the tooth may not be able to support your bite forces.
Dental implants are tooth replacements that look and function just like natural teeth. Smile with confidence, speak clearly, and eat all your favorite foods without worrying about a denture coming loose. With proper care and placement, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Traditional and cheap dentures have earned their bad reputation, but quality dentures can be attractive, comfortable, and highly functional. Although they are not as good as dental implants, many people find dentures satisfying for their daily life.
Sometimes your smile may require a combination of procedures to achieve the appearance you desire. A smile makeover is a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan that includes a combination of procedures tailored to your smile and your goals.
Microabrasion is where we remove tiny amounts of your tooth enamel where it is damaged or unattractive. This can be used to treat white stains, brown stains, and other discolorations of the tooth enamel’s surface.
Sedation dentistry can help people with anxiety who tend to avoid dental care to get the dental care they need or desire. We offer oral conscious sedation and nitrous oxide to help our patients get the anxiety relief that is best for them.
NuCalm is a drug-free approach to relaxing while at the dentist. Using advanced neuroscience, the device is able to regulate your body’s stress response, keeping it from turning on while you’re in the dental chair. It’s often described as being like deep meditation.
Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ or TMD) is a problem with the misalignment of your jaw that can cause local and systemic symptoms. We offer drug-free treatment options that can relieve your symptoms–permanently in some cases.
Jaw pain is one of the most common symptoms of TMJ. The pain can be caused by sore muscles, joint damage, or nerve pressure. The nature of the pain and the best treatment depends on the type of pain you experience.
Many people who have difficulty getting relief from their headaches find that their pain is related to TMJ, something that doctors and even many dentists neglect. TMJ treatment can reduce or even eliminate headaches–including those diagnosed as migraines–without drugs.
Sleep apnea is a deadly, even fatal condition in which your breathing stops at night. Most often, this is because your airway collapses while you’re sleeping. We offer a comfortable and convenient alternative to CPAP treatment for sleep apnea.
Snoring is caused by a narrowing of the airway that occurs during sleep. It is often a warning sign of sleep apnea, but it should be taken seriously even if you don’t have sleep apnea. We offer safe, effective treatment for your snoring.
For many children, the preconditions of crooked teeth and poor breathing at night begin at an early age. Healthy Start addresses these preconditions to help children develop healthy smiles and enjoy life without related complications such as bedwetting, ADHD, behavioral problems, and low academic achievement related to poor sleep.
General dentistry is dentistry focused on maintaining or restoring the health of your teeth. Preventive procedures help you avoid tooth damage, while restorative procedures repair damaged teeth. General dentistry is a complement to cosmetic dentistry in our office.
Preventive dentistry is your best investment in your overall and oral health. By preventing damage to your teeth and infection of your gums, you will avoid the future need for restorative dentistry, and reduce your risk for serious health conditions such as heart disease or stroke.
A dental bridge is an older tooth replacement option that is still a good choice for many people. A bridge uses your natural teeth to support a replacement tooth that doesn’t have a root. This can look good and function normally for biting and chewing.
Gum disease is an infection of the soft tissue around your teeth. It’s one of the most common chronic health conditions, and the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the US. It’s also been linked to serious health conditions including cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Root canal therapy is used when a tooth becomes infected. The infected material is removed and replaced with an inert material. People think that root canals are painful, but modern root canals relieve pain more than cause it.
We try to preserve teeth whenever possible, but sometimes extraction is the best option for getting optimal results for a tooth. This includes wisdom teeth, which may not fit in your jaw, causing crowding or leading to serious infection.
Unlike most types of cancer in the US, oral cancer deaths aren’t falling quickly. That’s partly because too few people are being screened for oral cancer in the US. We can use a noninvasive test to quickly screen you for oral cancer.
We believe that your dental health should be maintained in a way that is harmonious with the health and function of your entire body, so we utilize safe dental materials and follow principles of minimal intervention to preserve your natural tooth structure. We also treat systemic conditions that originate with or are influenced by your oral health.
Maintaining proper oral health is a lifelong journey, and we are eager to help you every step of the way. We are happy to see patients from before their first tooth to after their last tooth (if necessary) to ensure your health and quality of life.
If you participate in any type of sports, you have an elevated risk of injury to your mouth and teeth. Sports mouthguards protect your teeth to minimize the risk of injury. We offer mouthguards made using the latest procedures and materials for maximum protection.
PerioSciences is an antioxidant-based line of oral hygiene products that is designed to support your body’s natural immune processes. We can recommend which of these products might be best to help support your home hygiene routine.
Myofunctional therapy can help treatment for sleep apnea, TMJ, and other conditions. We can teach you to perform a few simple exercises that will improve your treatment results–and help you look and feel better, too!
