Dentures

Dentures are designed to have the look and feel of natural teeth. The 21st century offers more natural choices of colors for artificial gums and teeth. Advanced dental materials create dentures that are more comfortable, more durable and fit better than your parents and grandparents ever imagined.

If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, dentures can be used to replace your missing teeth – improving your health as well as your appearance. Dentures prevent the sagging of facial muscles, which makes a person with no teeth look much older. Dentures also enable you to eat and speak normally, little things often taken for granted until natural teeth are lost.

We work to connect you with the best local specialists who will provide this care.

Daily care: Brush your gums, tongue, and palate every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and to help remove plaque. Regular dental checkups are needed so we can examine your mouth and dentures to ensure a healthy and comfortable fit.

Cleaning

The basis of preventative dental care is routine hygiene and check-ups. Cleanings are customized to individual histories and routine analysis is performed on every aspect of your oral health. We communicate closely with you to ensure you are aware of any oral health risks and work with you to prevent them.

We provide a variety of products to assist in keeping you healthy and your smile bright!

It’s never too late to get teeth you love!

Fillings

For hundreds of years, dental fillings have been used to restore teeth. Dental fillings are placed in teeth where a dentist has had to remove tooth structure due to decay or fracture. In recent years filling materials have been substantially improved by many technological advancements. Although silver amalgam was the dominant choice years ago, today we have several other preferred options for tooth restoration including tooth colored composite filling materials, cementable resins, and porcelains.

Decayed teeth require fillings to restore strength and health of natural teeth. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed from the sound tooth structure. Filling materials are shaped to match the look and feel of natural tooth. Traditionally, silver or amalgam material has been the filling of choice but today, many modern materials can be used to mimic the color and texture of natural teeth.

Veneers

Unlike a crown, which covers the entire tooth, a veneer is a thin shell that is placed over the front or visible parts of the tooth. There are two types of veneers, ceramic veneers that are produced by a dental laboratory and resin-based composite veneers. With proper care, your new veneers will greatly improve your appearance and increase your confidence for years to come.

Veneers are prescribed for damaged, discolored, or broken teeth. The tooth is prepared by eliminating surface structure. After fabrication the veneer is cemented to the prepared tooth. Veneers restore natural beauty and health of teeth.

Implants

When it comes to replacing one or more teeth in your mouth, a dental implant is often the treatment of choice and is also one of the most conservative treatments for tooth replacement. Implants are biocompatible posts that replace the roots of your missing teeth. They are physically and biologically designed to attach to your jaw bone and become the foundation for a natural looking restoration.

An implant post is surgically placed into the area where the tooth is missing. In a few months bone will fuse to the implant. A customized crown or bridge is permanently cemented to the implant. Implants restore the natural beauty, function, and health of teeth and  have excellent stability and strength.

Inlays

Dental inlays and onlays are some of the strongest and most lifelike dental restorations available. After your mouth has been anesthetized we prepare the tooth in much the same way we would for a standard filling. When the tooth has been prepared to our satisfaction, an impression is made and sent to a dental lab. You will usually be required to wear a temporary filling until the restoration is fabricated.

Decayed teeth may require an inlay to restore strength and health to the natural tooth structure. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed from the sound tooth structure.

An inlay is fabricated to match the look and feel of your natural teeth. This restoration often resembles a puzzle piece. In most cases the restoration will completely blend into the natural tooth structure. Because inlays are made of gold, they are one of the longest lasting restorations available.

Bridges

A bridge is prescribed when one or more teeth are missing and there are healthy teeth on both sides of the open space. Bridges can be made from three types of material, porcelain fused to high noble metal base for strength and beauty, and high-strength metal-free porcelain for optimum cosmetic results. With proper care, your new bridge will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.

The fabricated bridge is cemented into place over the prepared adjacent teeth, restoring the natural beauty and health of your smile.

Orthodonics

Orthodontic treatment is an effective solution for crooked teeth and a jaw that is out of alignment. Most treatments require brackets to be bonded to your teeth and a wire running from tooth to tooth. Other options include movement utilizing retainers and/or trays. The time-frame for orthodontics to be completed can range from 3 months to 4 years depending on your treatment needs.

Once your teeth have been repositioned, you may be required to wear a temporary retainer to keep your teeth in position. Upon completion of your treatment, your teeth will be straight and beautiful, improving your overall health and confidence.

Crowns

Crowns are prescribed when a tooth or teeth are too badly decayed, broken or cracked to be easily restored with a filling. Crowns are normally needed for teeth that have had root canals. Crowns are also placed on dental implants to replace missing teeth. Crowns can be made entirely of gold or porcelain fused to a high noble metal for strength and beauty. However, with new technology, crowns can be made entirely from high-strength ceramic and porcelain for beautiful cosmetic results.

With proper care, your new crown will increase your overall health and instill confidence for years to come.

Gum Care

Periodontics is the care of your gums. Gum disease is usually caused by plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that constantly forms on teeth. If plaque is not removed with thorough daily brushing and cleaning between teeth, gums become irritated and inflamed. Left untreated, the process can continue until the bone and other tooth-supporting tissues are destroyed. The early stage of periodontal disease is called gingivitis. It often results in gums that are red and swollen and may bleed easily. our dental hygienists perform periodontal treatments that are designed specifically to help control and stabilize periodontal disease.

Root Canals

Endodontic treatment, more commonly known as root canal therapy, is necessary when the pulp of your tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes such as deep decay, repeated dental procedures on your tooth, or a crack in the tooth. With proper care, an Endodontically treated tooth will function normally for years to come.

When decay or damage goes untreated it can result in an infection to the pulp chamber of the tooth. After creating a small opening, very small instruments are used to clean and shape the root canal spaces. The cleaned spaces are filled with a biocompatible material and specialized cement to ensure complete sealing of the root canals.
