Sealants

Sealants The most important reason for getting sealants is to avoid tooth decay. Sealants are used to fill in narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing alone. Typically, children have sealants placed on the first and second permanent molars. Getting sealants put on is simple and painless. Sealants are applied […]

Tooth Whitening

Tooth Whitening Also called bleaching, tooth whitening is the procedure of making teeth whiter, and therefore more attractive. Our office uses Professional Series Crest Whitestrips and one hour in-chair bleaching systems.

Fillings

Fillings Fillings are done to remove decay, and replace the affected tooth structure with an appropriate dental material. Most teeth can be treated with bonded tooth colored composite resin fillings. Caught early enough, cavities can be treated easily and painlessly. Untreated decay can lead to pain and/or infection, and the tooth would need further treatment.

Veneers

Veneers Veneers are thin custom-made shells that are designed to cover the front side of teeth. Made of tooth-colored materials, veneers are used to treat spaces between teeth and teeth that are permanently stained, poorly shaped or slightly crooked.

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas)

Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) Nitrous Oxide is a mild temporary sedative. It is effective in reducing the anxiety associated with the dental appointment. After treatment you will be given oxygen to breathe to dissipate the effects of the nitrous oxide and return you to a normal state. You may drive after the appointment.

Dentures

Dentures There are several types of dentures, but they share one common function. They replace teeth that have been lost. Dentures are not permanently attached and must be removed on a daily basis for cleaning.

Dental Implants

Dental Implants Implants are generally made of titanium and are placed in the jawbone near the socket of the missing tooth. Bone grows around the implant to anchor it in place. Once the implant is anchored in place an abutment is attached to the implant and a crown is attached to the abutment. Implants are […]

Bridges

Bridges A bridge is an option to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is formed to look like the missing tooth or teeth and is permanently seated on the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth or teeth. It looks and feels like real teeth and is more comfortable than removable appliances to replace missing […]
