Improving Your Smile’s Strength & Beauty


Dental Implants

Missing a tooth not only affects the appearance of your smile, but it can also affect your dental health. Your other teeth may begin to shift, increasing your risk of decay and a misaligned bite. A gap in the smile can also leave you more susceptible to jaw bone damage and gum disease, and make it more difficult for you to chew or speak correctly. Dental implants offer a solution that prevents all of these consequences.

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically inserted into the gums where the tooth used to be. The post will fuse to the jawbone over a period of a few months. Once this occurs, we restore the implant with an abutment and a crown. After the restoration, the dental implant will look like and function as a natural tooth!

A patient must have sufficient jawbone in order to enjoy success with dental implants. Our doctors will work with you to determine if you are a candidate for this revolutionary tooth-replacement procedure.


Crowns & Bridges

A crown is a “cap” that is placed over a tooth that is significantly broken or decayed, or has received a root canal. We utilize tooth-colored crowns that blend in naturally with the rest of your smile while improving the strength and appearance of the tooth.

A bridge is a device that uses crowns to replace a missing tooth. Crowns are placed on the teeth on either side of the gap, and the crowns are connected to an abutment that is placed in the gap. Because the bridge is cemented to the teeth, it offers more stability and security than dentures but is a quicker and simpler procedure than placing a dental implant.


Gum Disease Treatment

Gum disease occurs in several stages. Gingivitis consists of irritation of the gums. When left untreated, it can develop into periodontitis, a painful condition that can result in tooth loss. By performing routine cleanings, we can catch gum disease early on and perform treatment right away.

The most common gum disease treatment is called scaling and root planing. This procedure involves deep cleaning beneath the gumline to remove bacteria. We then smooth out the tooth roots so the gums can properly and securely adhere to them, sealing out further bacteria and preventing the development of periodontitis.


Dentures & Partials

If you are missing teeth, we can create custom dentures and partials that restore your confidence in your smile, improve your ability to chew and speak, and fit comfortably and securely in your mouth. Dentures are used to replace full rows of teeth, while partials are used when a patient is not missing all of their teeth.

White Composite Fillings

After a cavity is removed, we will fill the tooth to restore its strength and protect it from further damage and decay. At our practice, we provide white composite fillings, which not only blend in seamlessly with the smile as compared to silver amalgam fillings, but they also help to better maintain the strength of the remaining tooth structure.
