General dentists are the most common dental care providers. By definition, they diagnose, treat and manage overall oral healthcare needs including cleanings and exams, gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges and preventative education. We provide quality and affordable dental services available: teeth cleaning, dental exams, fluoride treatment, braces, cosmetic dentistry, and more.
Cosmetic dentistry primarily pays attention to the appearance though not necessarily the functionality of teeth, gums and/or bite. It focuses on improvement dental aesthetics in color, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance. Common procedures in cosmetic dentistry include braces, implants, veneers, crowns, bridges, all of which will provide you with the smile of your dreams!
Pediatric dentistry is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years. In this field, doctors have the experience and qualifications to care for a child’s teeth, gums, and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood.
A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant doesn't come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.
A dental extraction (also referred to as tooth extraction, exodontia, exodontics, or informally, tooth-pulling) is the removal of teeth from the dental alveolus (socket) in the alveolar bone.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specializes in treating patients with improper positioning of teeth when the mouth is closed (malocclusion), which results in an improper bite. Orthodontics also includes treating and controlling various aspects of facial growth (dentofacial orthopedics) and the shape and development of the jaw.
A smile design is a dental procedure which artistically creates straighter, whiter and beautiful natural looking smiles. Smile designs can do wonders to fully restore your dental health and appearance regardless of the original state of your existing teeth.
A smile designer revitalizes your smile in a longer lasting way than Botox or other temporary measures. A smile design is an overall important investment in your overall appearance.
Age decreases our smile due to wear, chipping and discoloration. This can happen gradually and can be very embarrassing. Smile enhancement can get you smiling again.
Our doctor will work with you to customize and plan your smile design. A free consultation is arranged to make sure you achieve your cosmetic dental goals and to resolve your underlying dental problems.
The timeline is planned so as to minimize the number of appointments and to make sure your smile is completed in time for your special social function (wedding, engagement, wedding anniversary, graduation, etc.).
Some smile designs only require Porcelain Veneers. Other smile designs will require a combination of Porcelain Veneers and Porcelain Crowns. Porcelain crowns are chosen when teeth are weak such as endodontically treated teeth or teeth will large old restorations (like large old crowns). Sometimes teeth are missing in the smile zone. This then required either a porcelain bridge with an ovate pontic or an implant with a Porcelain crown.
Multiple missing anterior teeth may require multiple implants or an implant supported denture to make the completed smile designs.
If too much gum tissue is showing or the gums are uneven when the individual smiles, then a "gum lift" is done with lasers to reduce the amount of gum showing.
If only a few teeth are veneered, then the other teeth are whitened before the smile design is completed. This makes sure that the smile is enhanced and brightened.
