DENTAL CROWNS - CEREC
Using advanced CEREC 3D technology we create porcelain crowns right here in our office and bond it to your tooth before you leave. Our office is a pioneer of this wonderful technology, keeping up with the advancements and experienced with this system since 1990. Imagine, having a new tooth in just one day. CEREC one visit crowns are an innovation available at only some dental office. As cosmetic dentists, we are overjoyed to use our “Computer-assisted-design Computer-assisted-manufactured” crown, or “CAD-CAM.” Your crown is created by a computer to fit your tooth precisely, thus eliminating the laboratory step in crown creation. The durability and longevity of the crown is the same as the traditional method and can be completed in only one visit. Many of our patients love this proven method for dental crowns and have recommended the process to their friends and loved ones.
We understand that missing teeth can affect your whole attitude about your appearance…and life.Dental Implants are an excellent method for replacing teeth permanently with stability and aesthetic appeal. Dental implants restore missing natural teeth with a solid anchor for crowns, bridges, and dentures. Either one tooth may be replaced or an entire mouth may be restored with the use of dental implants. If you are missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak and eat again with comfort and confidence we want to help you! The process of placing dental implants is a superior method to dentures and partial dentures. Dental Implants may also be used in place of bridges. This method of dental replacement is becoming more and more popular with great success. If you are wearing a full or partial denture and you are tired of the limitations, please call our office and see how implants can improve your smile, function and your life.

DENTAL FILLINGS AND BONDING
Our office routinely maintains our patients smiles by taking care of dental fillings, always using the best porcelain and materials available. We can also provide dental bonding, a wonderful cosmetic dental solution available at our office that can be used to easily enhance your smile. Bonding can mask stains, close spaces and repair fractures in your teeth.

When preferred dental treamtents, such as dental implants are not optimal for your treatment a dental bridge may be used. Dental bridges can be used to support the structure of your mouth and restore functionality. Dental bridges may also enhance your aesthetic appearance so you may maintain the function and look of your smile.
Endodontic treatment, also known as a root canal may be necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. It is crucial to remedy this infection and resulting toxins so as not to effect your overall health and well-being. At our office we use the most advanced methods and materials available increasing success of the treatment. Our skill and technology help take care of your necessary root canal in the most comfortable way possible.
PERIODONTAL (GUM DISEASE) TREATMENT
Non-surgical periodontal treatment allows us and dental hygienists to treat gum disease with minimally invasive techniques. Our dental hygienists provide regular scaling and root planing procedures, which remove tartar from the teeth to eliminate infection and allow the gums to heal. Scaling removes tartar below the gum line, while root planing smooths the tooth’s root to prevent future tartar buildup. Our hygienists also perform subgingival irrigation, and may apply oral medications to enhance your treatment. Since scaling and root planing do not require surgery, patients can expect minimal discomfort and shorter recovery times than surgical procedures. We encourage regular visits to treat gum disease, so you may gradually and effectively imrpove your dental health and overall well-being.

NIGHTGUARDS AND MOUTHGUARDS
Many people experience bruxism or teeth grinding. Some people may do this consciously during the day, but it is a larger problem at night while you are asleep. Grinding your teeth can damage enamel, wear down teeth, cause jaw pain, or irritate your gums. If you grind your teeth you should consider a night guard. The night guard, which is very similar to a mouth guard worn by athletes, provides a barrier between your top and bottom teeth while you sleep. All night guards are custom fitted for comfort and to allow for proper breathing. Our team will provide you with a fantastic, durable, and comfortable night guard or mouth guard.
