Bleaching - Teeth Whitening
Whitening is one of the simplest and least expensive techniques and it can give you a brilliant smile you’ll be proud of. Our custom made whitening kits to use at home are comfortable, easy to use, and deliver a great result.

Veneers
Porcelain veneers are top line in cosmetic dentistry.  If your teeth are chipped, broken, or discolored, porcelain veneers are a great way to change the color and shape of your teeth.  A porcelain veneer is a covering over the tooth that gives natural color and bridges small gaps.  Veneers can be a great alternative to braces for slight orthodontic problems and provide a beautiful smile in a short amount of time. The results are simply gorgeous!

Bonding
Dental bonding can produce amazing improvements by fixing chips in your teeth.  Bonding is covering the front surface of teeth with durable plastic to either change the tooth's color or shape, or to rebuild broken teeth.  Bonding is similar to veneers, but not as strong, but it is a low-cost way to improve your smile.  Bonding is great for children who have chipped front teeth and for adults who need an alternative for veneers and understand the limitations.

Metal Free Crowns
Crowns, or caps, are used to restore broken or cracked teeth. The new metal-free crowns eliminate the ugly black line you may have seen next to the gumline on older crowns.

Oral Surgery
Dr. Smith has 30 years of experience in oral surgery and understands the importance of patient comfort which is why he is also trained in sedation dentistry.

What to expect when you are scheduled for a tooth extraction?
Dr. Smith will numb the area to lessen any discomfort. After the extraction, he will advise you of what post extraction regimen to follow, in most cases a small amount of bleeding is normal.  Avoid anything that might prevent normal healing.  It is usually best not to smoke or rinse your mouth vigorously, or drink through a straw for 24 hours. These activities could dislodge the clot and delay healing.

For the first few days, if you must rinse, rinse your mouth gently afterward, for pain or swelling, apply a cold cloth or an ice bag. You can brush and floss the other teeth as usual. But don't clean the teeth next to the tooth socket.

When having an extraction, today's modern procedures and follow up care as recommended.

Root Canals
In the past, if you had a tooth with a diseased nerve, you'd probably lose that tooth. Today, with a special dental procedure called a root canal therapy you may save that tooth. Inside each tooth is the pulp which provides nutrients and nerves to the tooth, it runs like a thread down through the root. When the pulp is diseased or injured, the pulp tissue dies. If you don't remove it, your tooth gets infected and you could lose it. After the dentist removes the pulp, the root canal is cleaned and sealed off to protect it. Then your dentist places a crown over the tooth to help make it stronger.

Most of the time, a root canal is a relatively simple procedure with little or no discomfort involving one to three visits. Best of all, it can save your tooth and your smile!  Call our office to learn more.

Tooth Colored Fillings
Inlays and Onlays are tooth-colored restorations that are used in place of silver fillings on the chewing surfaces of back teeth.  This approach has become very popular because silver (mercury) fillings are not safe and are less attractive.

 

Implants Restoration
Implants are an increasingly popular alternative to dentures and bridges. They have many advantages, including their natural appearance, improved comfort and unequaled convenience. If you are considering implants, we can discuss the considerations and help you make the decision that is right for you.

Healthy gums
Our hygienists are great. They are both thorough and gentle. They can help you create a custom preventive maintenance routine to keep healthy. If you have gum problems, we offer both non-surgical and surgical gum therapies.

Headaches, clenching, grinding teeth
Many people damage their teeth or give themselves headaches by grinding or clenching their teeth during their sleep.  Some people develop jaw joint ( TMJ )pain. We offer nightguard type splints to help with this.

Infection Control
Our office is OSHA compliant, and follows the same OSHA sterilization recommendations for hospitals.
