Cleanings & Exams
Regular dental checkups keep your teeth healthy and feeling fresh — and can help prevent bigger dental problems from occurring in the first place. We recommend scheduling a preventative exam and cleaning every six months. If you notice signs of dental trouble like discomfort or regularly bleeding gums, we also suggest scheduling an exam right away so we can get to the bottom of what’s going on.
Crowns & Bridges
Crowns are artificial teeth made from porcelain that we use to repair heavily damaged natural teeth or fill in gaps in your smile. A crown can be placed over one of your existing teeth, protecting it from further damage and creating a fresh new appearance. Crowns can also be fused together into a row to form a bridge, which fills in the hole left by a missing tooth or teeth.
Old-fashioned crowns are made in a lab, meaning that your new crowns can take weeks to arrive. We offer something different. Our CEREC crowns are digitally designed and are made using our in-house CEREC machine, which means that we can diagnose your condition, create your crowns, and place them all during a single appointment!
The iTero digital scanner is a small, handheld device that is utilized to capture three-dimensional imaging of the teeth and the bite, as well as any oral tissues. The iTero is placed into the patient’s mouth and navigated to take a closer look at a particular region or to produce detailed impressions. Overall, iTero can be used for any situation that would typically call for traditional impressions – this includes Invisalign, veneers, or some restorative appliance fabrications. Rather than using messy dental putty, the iTero takes reliable, precise impressions in minutes, so patients can sit back, relax, and have a more enjoyable experience.
A root canal is a simple procedure to clean out an infected tooth to prevent further damage and allow the tooth to continue to function. During a root canal, your dentist will gently remove the soft tissue or pulp from the inside of the tooth, along with any harmful bacteria, before packing the tooth full of dental filler and sealing it shut with a crown or a filling. Root canals provide an easy fix for an uncomfortable tooth and can help you avoid an extraction down the road.
Dentures are an affordable, elegant option for hiding missing teeth and restoring the appearance of a healthy, natural smile. Your set of dentures will be custom-made to your specifications and will cover any gaps in your smile. Typically, dentures use suction to attach to your mouth, but they can also be combined with dental implants for a sturdier, more effective hold.
We use safe, non-toxic, metal-free dental composite for our fillings. You’ll love the tooth-colored look that blends right in with your natural teeth for an elegant, healthy smile!
Night & Sportsguards
If you grind your teeth at night or play sports, you might assume that Amazon or your local pharmacy is the best place to get a mouthguard to help protect your teeth. Think again! We can make you a custom mouthguard that is designed for your unique mouth and will provide comfortable, effective protection while you sleep or out on the field.
If you’re having a dental emergency, don’t wait. Call today and we will fit you in for an appointment ASAP. We’ll do a full dental exam and make treatment recommendations so you know what your options are moving forward.
