Taking care of your teeth is important and we make it easy to maintain and obtain a bright, sparkling smile. Our goal is to provide you with care that’s comfortable, relaxed and state-of-the-art. Our family-friendly environment enables you and your loved ones to come to us for a range of different treatment options. Caring for your teeth involves cosmetic, preventative and restorative care, all of which we’re able to offer to you.
Fillings are essential for patients who have one or more cavities. They are used to help retain the structure of the tooth while simultaneously replacing areas that have become decayed. We use composite resin fillings in our practice so that you can experience a beautifully white smile regardless of the amount of restorations needing to be placed. These metal-free fillings can last for years and provide you with a natural-looking smile.
Dental Exams and Cleanings
Preventative care is the number one way to maintain your smile. With regular twice-yearly exams and cleanings, we can check for cavities, loose restorations, problems with teeth and even oral cancer. Cleanings help in removing hardened plaque and stains from the teeth while checking the health of your gums.
A root canal is an important step in preserving the structure of a tooth that’s become severely decayed. If a cavity is left untreated, the decay can eventually make its way down into the pulp of the tooth, causing it to become infected. Root canals involve full removal of this pulp so that an extraction is not needed.
A dental crown helps to cover a compromised tooth that’s broken, cracked or fractured. Crowns not only look aesthetically-pleasing, but they restore overall functionality to your smile. They are long-lasting and durable, with most crowns lasting for years without needing to be replaced.
A dental bridge helps to replace a tooth that is missing. The bridge is placed onto the two surrounding teeth and the middle tooth simply sits on the gum line. Bridges help you feel better about your smile while helping to regain control of your ability to chew and eat certain foods.
Extractions are sometimes necessary to remove a tooth that’s become a problem. They may be needed if a tooth is loose due to gum disease, has severely decayed or if it could become a problem in the future if left in place, as you’d find with wisdom teeth. We perform safe, easy and comfortable extractions in our office.
