General Dentistry

With many years of combined experience our team is ready to help you with all of you our your families dental needs. We pride ourselves on providing the highest level of care and comfort for our patients.

Some of the general procedures we provide include:

Composite Fillings (Cavity Repair)A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. The decayed or affected portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling.

Dental Crowns Crowns are prescribed when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a gold substrate for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.

Bonding The use of composite resins to attach materials to the surface of the tooth in order to restore chipped or cracked teeth. An enamel-like composite material is applied to the surface of the tooth, sculpted into shape, contoured and polished, repairing the tooth.

Root Canals Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save the tooth, the pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), nerves, bacteria, and any decay are removed and the resulting space is filled with special, medicated, dental materials, which restore the tooth to its full function.Having a root canal done on a tooth is the treatment of choice to save a tooth that otherwise would die and have to be removed. Many patients believe that removing a tooth that has problems is the solution, but what is not realized is that extracting (pulling) a tooth will ultimately be more costly and cause significant problems for adjacent teeth.

Dental Bridges We will prescribe a bridge when one or more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space. Bridges can be made from three types of material, solid gold for reliable long wear, porcelain fused to a gold base for strength and beauty, and high-strength metal-free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results. With proper care, your new bridge will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.

Periodontal (Gum Disease) Treatment

Laser Procedures Lasers provide instant results with painless procedures and easy healing. Teeth that appear small or short can many times be “lengthened” by recontouring the gum line using the laser.This procedure is used to create a perfect, harmonious gum line in relation to the lips and teeth; Simple, effective and safe.
