Bonding

   This is done to repair damage done to the tooth by decay, to alter the alignment of the tooth, close gaps between the teeth, or for cosmetic purposes. Bonding involves adhering composite resin material to the front of the tooth. The material is matched to the color of the tooth.

Crowns and Bridges

   Crowns and bridges are used to restore and enhance teeth that are damaged, or to take the place of missing teeth. A crown, or cap, is used to cover a damaged tooth. A crown not only strengthens a tooth, but it can dramatically improve a tooth's appearance, shape and alignment. A bridge is used to fill the space created by missing teeth.

Fillings

Invisalign

   The invisalign treatment consists of a series of clear, snap-on, custom fit, removable mouth trays that apply a controlled amount of force to your teeth, forcing them to shift. The system provides the same beautiful results as traditional braces, but since the trays are made of clear plastic, they are virtually invisible.

Non-Surgical Gum Treatment

   The gums, ligaments, and bone around the teeth form the foundation for your teeth called the periodontium. When the periodontium is not healthy, it jeopardizes the teeth. With proper gum treatments, it may be possible to return gum tissue to a healthy state. The treatment usually involves a deep cleaning or root planing done under a local anesthetic along with antibiotics.

Oral Cancer Screening

   Regular dental check-ups, including an examination of the entire mouth, are essential in the early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions. Oral cancer often starts as a tiny, unnoticed white or red spot or sore anywhere in the mouth so regular screenings are critical.

Sealants

   Sealants are used to fill in narrow grooves in a tooth that cannot be adequately cleaned by brushing. These will develop cavities over time, but to avoid them we brush a coating that seals the grooves and pits, making it possible to brush off all the plaque and keep your teeth healthy.

Veneers

   Veneers are a procedure in which a covering is placed over the outside visible area of the tooth. Veneers are a thin, translucent coating made out of porcelain or resin. The advantage of veneers versus crowns is that much less tooth material is removed, and the procedure is generally less uncomfortable.     They are applied to the front teeth to improve their color, size, or shape. Veneers can help achieve the smile you want.
