TOOTH COLORED FILLINGS
A Composite resin filling, which comes in different shades to match your tooth color, is used when only a small amount of tooth structure needs replacing or repairing. This material can be used to fill small to moderate size cavities, or replace any small to moderate size defective silver fillings. Contact Us
Tooth whitening is a bleaching process that lightens discolorations of enamel and dentin. Our system uses a mild solution retained in a custom fitted tray that is worn over your teeth. The process is safe. Results are usually seen after the first application. Maximum results generally occur when the process is continued for 7-14 nights. Contact Us
Dental Veneers are an excellent cosmetic remedy for a variety of dental conditions that affect the appearance of the front teeth. Veneers, usually fabricated from porcelain, are a thin, semi-translucent “shell”, custom made to fit precisely over an existing tooth. They are permanently bonded, held in place by a special resin that adheres to the back of the tooth. The finished result is extremely strong and durable. Though veneers are not suitable for every patient, they are a cosmetic alternative for a variety of dental conditions affecting the front teeth, including closing spaces between the teeth, restoring broken or stained or washed-out fillings, whitening teeth, and correcting uneven or crooked teeth.

CROWN AND BRIDGE
Crown and bridge treatment will restore lost teeth, supporting remaining teeth and help you maintain optimum dental health.
A crown, sometimes called a “cap”, is a tooth-like covering placed over a carefully prepared existing tooth. It is used to strengthen a tooth, and to protect the structure of a tooth that is fractured or broken.
A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost teeth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one must be prepared as crowns to serve as abutments to hold the prosthetic (replacement) teeth in place.

PARTIAL AND FULL DENTURES
Partial and full dentures aren’t what they used to be. New advances and dentistry enable us to improve the fit, comfort and appearance of dentures. Using the latest, most advanced techniques to assure comfortable fit and natural appearance, we will review your health history, make a thorough oral examination and take proper records and measurements before prescribing your prosthesis. We work only with the most reputable laboratories trained to fashion custom teeth to complement your facial features and lifestyle. Beware of teeth replacements offered at a substantially reduced fee; as with anything else, you get what you pay for. Contact Us
Root canal treatment (Endodontics) treats disorders of the nerve (also called the pulp) of the tooth. It used to be that a tooth with a diseased or infected nerve had to be removed. In 95 percent of the cases study today, however, this is no longer true. We believe in saving teeth (instead of removing them).
The following are the most common factors contributing to a need for root canal treatment: physical irritation caused by deep decay or a very large filling, severe gum disease, or trauma. Regardless of the initial cause, the tooth pulp become irritated and infected. Bacteria grow within the tooth pulp, causing pressure and pain, sometimes accompanied by swelling of the face.
During treatment, we use an anesthetic to numb the tooth and the surrounding area. Then an opening is made through the crown of the tooth into the pulp. We carefully remove the diseased pulp. The root canal area inside your tooth is cleaned, enlarged and shaped. To complete the process, the root canal and pulp chamber are permanently filled and sealed.
Gum disease is caused by the plaque, a colorless film of bacteria that forms on the teeth. Plaque mixes with sugars and starches in the diet to form acids and other by products in the mouth, irritating the gums and causing them to become red, tender and swollen. It also causes the gums to bleed easily. If not removed daily, plaque hardens to form calculus (tartar) around the necks of the teeth. The type of treatment you require depends on how advanced your gum disease has reached. Individualized treatment may include: more frequent cleanings, scaling and root planing, curettage, gingivectomy, or flap surgery. Contact Us
Whether your teeth are crowded, or too far apart, we can straighten your teeth with conventional braces or Invisalign. Unlike braces with metal wires and brackets, Invisalign is comfortable. It is a series of precisely customized aligners that you wear each set for about two weeks, moving your teeth, gradually-week by week, millimeter by millimeter until you’ve achieved the intended result: straighter teeth Contact Us
When you lose one or several teeth, chances are you have become fully accustomed to losing such a vital part of yourself. Now you can start over. With titanium tooth roots, we can offer replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like natural teeth. Dental implants fuse with jawbone to form a secure foundation for tooth replacement.
The first step is the placement of titanium implants to replace your lost teeth. They will remain covered underneath the gum for about 3 to 5 months. During this time, the implants should fuse to the bone. The second step of the procedure involves uncovering the implants and attaching a post to each implant. The final step is the placement of your new teeth. With techniques that ensure optimal size, shape, color and fit, your replacement teeth should blend in with your remaining teeth. Contact Us
