Our Services

Our office welcomes patients of all ages and provides the following services:

Comprehensive Dental Exams and Regular Check-Ups – A comprehensive dental exam includes an oral exam, teeth exam, periodontal exam, oral cancer screening and any necessary dental x-rays. Regular dental check-ups are important to prevent dental problems and detect them early to maintain your teeth and gum tissue health.

Dental Cleanings – Regular dental cleanings are recommended at least twice a year. For patients with severe gum disease, a deep cleaning (ie. scaling and root planing) may be necessary to help prevent teeth loss. Oral hygiene instructions will be reviewed to ensure proper home care.

Fillings and Sealants – Teeth that have cavities or damaged areas can be restored with tooth-colored composite fillings or silver-colored amalgam fillings. To help prevent cavities, resin sealants can be placed on the natural pits and grooves of teeth, especially molars.

Crowns – Porcelain or gold crowns are recommended to restore and strenghten teeth that are significantly decayed, broken, or have had root canal treatment.

Replacement of Missing Teeth – Missing teeth can be restored with either dental implants, bridges, or removable dentures. We can discuss these different options and determine the best treatment option for each patient’s needs.

Root Canal Therapy – A tooth that is causing constant severe pain or has a severe infection may require root canal treatment to save the tooth.

Extractions – An extraction (removal of a tooth) is sometimes necessary when a tooth is severely decayed, broken or infected.

Cosmetic Dentistry – Enhance the appearance of your teeth via procedures such as Composite Bonding, Porcelain Veneer, and Cosmetic contouring. Composite Bonding involves bonding a tooth-colored filling material to chipped and defective areas of a tooth. A Porcelain Veneer involves bonding a custom porcelain facing to mask a discolored or oddly shaped front tooth for aesthetic purposes. Cosmetic contouring involves reshaping slightly chipped and/or uneven teeth.

Teeth whitening – Our office offers custom home whitening kits to brighten your smile.

Invisalign – Straighten your teeth by wearing a series of custom clear trays instead of braces. We can determine if you are a candidate for Invisalign treatment during a consultation visit.

Mouth Guards and Night Guards – For patients who grind/clench their teeth or patients who are athletes, mouth guards or night guards can be made to protect the teeth from fractures and being damaged.

Emergency Care – We try our best to accommodate patients who are in pain or have urgent dental needs.
