General Dentistry

Fillings

A dental restoration or dental filling is a treatment to restore the function, integrity, and morphology of missing tooth structure resulting from caries or external trauma as well as to the replacement of such structure supported by dental implants.

General Check Ups

There are 2 parts to a regular dental visit – check up, or examination and the cleaning, or oral prophylaxis. At the dental check up your dental professional will check for cavities. X-rays might be taken to detect cavities between your teeth. The exam will also include a check for plaque and tartar on your teeth.

Oral Hygiene

Oral hygiene is the practice of keeping one's mouth clean and free of disease and other problems (e.g. bad breath) by regular brushing of the teeth (dental hygiene) and cleaning between the teeth. It is important that oral hygiene be carried out on a regular basis to enable prevention of dental disease and bad breath.

Root Canals

Root canal treatment is a treatment sequence for the infected pulp of a tooth which is intended to result in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.

Orthodontics

Invisalign®

Invisalign® treatment consists of a series of custom-made aligning trays. The dentist changes the trays every several weeks to fit the new tooth configuration. In addition to the reduced visual impact, Invisalign® aligning trays can be temporarily removed for important occasions – meaning that treatment duration is patient-controlled. A great number of people report complete satisfaction with both the Invisalign® treatment and the stunning results.

Myobrace

Myobrace treatment is simple and effective. It does not involve wearing braces or using complex and uncomfortable dental appliances 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Myobrace is a method of orthodontic treatment that helps align teeth and jaws, working with or without other orthodontic treatment methods. More importantly, Myobrace can also help to correct underlying conditions and poor oral habits that cause crooked teeth.

Six Month Smiles®

Six Month Smiles® short term orthodontic treatment is a modern twist on tried-and-true orthodontics. There is little debate within the orthodontic community that braces are the most widely used and most effective method to give patients straight, healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Six Month Smiles has taken the best aspects of braces and modified the treatment and the materials to give adults a common-sense, cosmetic solution that fits your lifestyle. Here is what makes Six Month Smiles so innovative…

— Average treatment times of ONLY 6 MONTHS.
— Clear brackets and tooth-colored wires are barely visible.
— Typically less expensive than traditional braces, aligner therapy, or veneers.

Traditional Braces

This is the most common type of braces, and have been used for over 100 years! Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Bridges

A bridge is a fixed dental restoration used to replace one or more missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth definitively to adjacent teeth or dental implants.

Crowns

In dentistry, crown refers to the anatomical area of teeth, usually covered by enamel. The crown is usually visible in the mouth after developing below the gingiva and then erupting into place. If part of the tooth gets chipped or broken, a dentist can apply an artificial crown.

Custom Whitening Trays

Custom whitening trays are hand made by a dental lab tech using an exact impression of your teeth. Our full-mouth professional laboratory-made bleaching trays are made with reservoirs. To maximize the bleaching process, reservoirs allow more bleaching gel to come in contact with the teeth.

Dentures

Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. That’s because dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth—things that people often take for granted.

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are very thin pieces of durable, tooth shaped porcelain that are custom made (for shape and color) by a professional dental laboratory. They are bonded onto the front of teeth to create a beautiful and attractive smile. Veneers can completely reshape your teeth and smile.

Teeth Whitening

Professional whitening is right for most people with permanent teeth and good oral health. If you do not have problems like tender gums or a receding gumline, then you are not likely to be as sensitive to the chemicals in bleaching treatments. It works well for anyone with stubborn, yellowish stains. According to the American Dental Association, brownish and grayish stains do not always whiten well. Bleaching treatments are right for people without previous work to front teeth; tooth-colored fillings, crowns, and caps are not to be whitened like the rest of your teeth.
