Bringing great smiles to life!

dentalsmileThe American Dental Association (ADA) suggests two dental cleanings a year to prevent bone loss, detect cavities, and screen for oral cancer. Cleanings prevent bone loss by aiding in the removal of plaque and tarter. Along with x-rays and regular exams, cleanings can help maintain your oral and overall health.
befaftRestorative dentistry is done to fix any problems you may have with the health of your teeth. For instance, cavities, broken teeth, gum disease etc.
Cosmetic dentistry is done to enhance the esthetics of your teeth. We can create a beautiful smile through Invisalign, veeners, CEREC crowns, or bonding.
cleanteethPeriodontal diseases are caused by bacterial infections that attack gums, ligaments and bone. Although the body has some natural defenses that resist bacterial attacks, these may not fully protect gum and bone tissues from inflammation and infection. There are several kinds of periodontal diseases including, gingivitis and periodontitis. Often painless, these diseases may develop slowly or progress quite rapidly. They can occur at any age. Unless you have regular dental checkups, you may not be aware you have a problem until your gums and bone have been seriously compromised. To prevent these diseases, brush thoroughly twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, floss and carefully clean between the teeth, use a antimicrobial mouth rinse, eat a balanced diet and see your dentist for regular checkups.
Dental X-rayDental Amalgam is a self-hardening mixture of silver-tin-copper alloy powder and liquid mercury and is sometimes referred to as a silver filling because of its color. It is often used as a filling material and replacement for broken teeth. It is durable, long lasting, and holds up well to the forces of biting. It is relatively inexpensive, generally completed in one visit, and is replaced very infrequently.

Composite Resin fillings are a mixture of powdered glass and plastic resin, sometimes referred to as a white, plastic, or tooth-colored filling. It is used for fillings, inlays, veneers, partial and complete crowns, or to repair portions of broken teeth. It is strong and durable, done in a single visit, resists breaking, preserves tooth structure, and does not corrode.

Crown: Restoration covering the whole tooth with a porcelain or gold tooth that is permanently cemented in.
Onlay: A restoration (either gold or porcelain) that is similar to a crown, but covers only a portion of the tooth and is permanently cemented in.
Veneer: A restoration that is cemented to the front surface of the tooth. This is a cosmetic procedure to change the shape and look of your front teeth.
Composite: (Filling) Dental restorative material made of tooth colored resin. This procedure is done when you have a cavity.
Amalgam: An alloy used in direct dental restorations. These silver filling are not used as frequently but are still and option.
Sealant: Plastic resin placed on the biting surfaces of molars to prevent bacteria from attacking the enamel and causing cavities.
Prophylaxis: This is your regular dental cleaning performed to remove coronal plaque, calculus and stains.
Periodic Oral Evaluation: Periodic Exam of your entire mouth done every 6-12 months.
Night guard: An appliance made to prevent grinding of your teeth at night.
Scaling & Root Planning: Deep cleaning below the gum line and roots of the teeth.
Bridge: A fixed prosthetic (fake tooth) that replaces one or more missing teeth and is cemented or attached to the adjacent teeth.
Dentures & Partials: A removable partial denture is a prosthetic replacement of one or more missing teeth that can be removed by the patient.
TMJ: The connecting hinge mechanism between the base of the skull (temporal bone) and the lower jaw (mandible).
FMX: A series of x-rays showing every tooth in your mouth. Typically done every 3- 5 years.
Bitewing X-Rays: Four small x-rays showing decay of all back molars that are hard to see visually. Typically done once a year.

Crowns & Veeners in one visit!

cereclgThe CEREC Procedure
Because Your Dentist Values YOUR Time

Let’s face it, very few of us have perfect teeth, free of decay and fillings.  You can probably see a filling or two in your own mouth, which do just that — “fill” a cavity, or hole, in your tooth left from the excavation of decayed tooth structure.  In many cases, those fillings are made of metal material and can go bad, weaken the tooth, or get additional decay under or around it.  In fact, 1.2 billion of these metal fillings will need to be replaced in the next 10 years.*  CEREC is a method used by thousands of dentists worldwide since 1987 not only to replace these fillings, but also to restore any tooth that is decayed, weakened, broken, etc. to its natural strength and beauty.  Better yet, it’s done with all-ceramic materials that are tooth colored in a single appointment!
