Initial Oral Examination
Your initial oral examination includes a visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
No Shots or Drills! The Hoya Laser is a breakthrough in comfortable dentistry. Energy from the laser is absorbed by the teeth, removing tooth decay – usually with no pain and no need for needles.
Our state-of-the-art, in-office Power Bleaching system, “Zoom”, will make your teeth whiter in less than 45 minutes.
Crowns are synthetic caps, usually made of a material like porcelain, placed on the top of a tooth.
High strength, Lumineers is a painless, permanent cosmetic solution for stained, chipped, discolored, or misaligned teeth. Lumineers is a porcelain veneer that can be made as a contact lens and is placed over existing teeth without requiring removal of painful tooth structure.
We perform root canals on anterior and posterior teeth.
Resin - Tooth-colored fillings that are light, cured to match your teeth. Amalgam - Silver-colored fillings, more durable material.
We will work with an implant specialist to create an implant for a missing single tooth, missing multiple teeth, or replace a removable appliance.
Invisalign is the clear way to straighten teeth. It gradually moves your teeth through a series of custom-made, removable, nearly invisible Aligners. “Invisible Braces”
You should have a standard cleaning at least twice a year. A periodontal treatment includes an Adult Prophy (basic cleaning). If it has been over a year since your last cleaning, possible treatment will include either Periodontal Scaling (deeper) or Root Planning and Scaling (requires anesthetic).
Removable Dental Prosthesis
For missing teeth, we can make dentures or removable partials for you.
