Teeth Cleaning

Professional teeth cleaning is beneficial to your overall oral and systemic health.  Cleanings involve a combination of electronic and manual instrumentation to remove the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth.  For some, root planing is necessary, which involves the cleaning of bacterial toxins and debris from the root surfaces and periodontal pockets.  The primary purpose of having your teeth cleaned is to prevent or delay the progression of gum disease and to maintain good oral health.


Crowns

Also knows as caps, crowns are custom made to fit over your teeth to hide misshaped, broken, or otherwise imperfect looking teeth.  Crowns are a great option for restoring strength and beauty to cracked, worn, and broken teeth, whether the result of teeth grinding, decay, age or improper bite. 


Bridges
Bridges are an ideal treatment for those looking to replace missing teeth.  These custom restorations are made to bridge the gap between teeth by anchoring an artificial tooth between two dental crowns that are placed on either side of the gap.  Bridges allow you to speak normally, chew properly and smile with renewed confidence.


Tooth Colored Fillings
Say good bye to unattractive silver fillings.  At our practice, we use only tooth colored fillings for the restoration of teeth.  These fillings are constructed of a natural-looking composite resin material that is bonded directly to your teeth.  These fillings allow for the conservation of vital tooth structure and can also be used to enhance the appearance of your smile.  They closely match the existing shade and texture of your teeth to help restore form and function in a beautiful way. 


Veneers
Porcelain dental veneers are fabricated from thin tooth-colored strips of porcelain that are bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth.  They are hand crafted to match your ideal esthetic preferences.  Veneers are an excellent option for dramatically enhancing your smile and concealing otherwise stained, chipped, and misaligned teeth.  Additionally, veneers maintain their bright appearance because they do not stain.  Veneers are usually the restorative material of choice for the show Extreme Makeover. 


Teeth Whitening
Studies have shown that the smile, after your eyes, is the first facial feature a person will notice.  Dull, yellow, or gray teeth can make you look unhealthy and your smile unattractive.  Brighter, whiter teeth can make you feel more confident, youthful and more willing to smile.  For your convenience, we offer two whitening options:

Zoom Whitening is completed in one short office visit.  A whitening gel is applied to your teeth and activated by a special light to help remove tough stains.  You’ll leave the office with a bright, vibrant smile in approximately one and a half hours.

Take Home Bleaching Trays
are preferred by some patients who want the convenience and control of whitening their teeth in the comfort of their own home.  This system allows you to whiten your teeth gradually over the course of one week or so and allows you to work around your own busy schedule.
