Thankfully, advances in the science of dentistry have led to the development of resin compounds that, when bonded to your tooth, provide a durable bonded filling with a much more natural appearance.
Composite restorations can typically be applied within a single appointment and offer a viable alternative to metal fillings in many cases. Contact our dentist today for more information or book an appointment.

Orthodontics are a dentistry specialty that address the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of mis-positioned teeth, jaws, and misaligned bite patterns. Orthodontics work by gradually aligning the teeth using braces that have been bonded to the teeth.
Different from orthopedics which are typically removable, orthodontics like braces may remain in place for months or years.
Porcelain veneers are a quick and effective way to achieve a more attractive smile. Veneers are thin shells that are made of porcelain that slide over your front teeth's surface.

The porcelain material is strong, durable, and stain resistant.
CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography, often referred to as a “scan,” which is a leading standard of care in today’s dentistry. This is a special x-ray that generates a three-dimensional (3-D) image of the mouth and dental structure that you cannot obtain from other x-ray methods. These x-rays show nerve paths, soft tissues, and bone in the craniofacial region in a single scan. From that scan, your dentist can create a more predictable and precise treatment plan. This is a simple procedure that takes about 1 minute to perform. All you have to do is stand at the machine and it does the rest.
CBCT is a digital method and therefore produces extremely low radiation levels. Our team of Dentists will often recommend having this CBCT for the following reasons:
Focus on preventative care and minor repairs. A family dentist is your go-to doctor for your regular teeth cleanings and exams.
Bridges are natural-looking dental appliances that can replace a section of missing teeth. Because they are custom-made, bridges are barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth. Crowns are also used to attach bridges, cover implants, prevent a cracked tooth from becoming worse, or if an existing filling is in jeopardy of becoming loose or dislocated.
Crowns are typically used to restore a tooth’s function and appearance following a restorative procedure such as a root canal.
When tooth decay or damage extends to the pulp, a root canal treatment and antibiotics are typically the first treatment. If the decay is too severe, the tooth may need to be extracted to prevent the spread of infection.
Removing a tooth prevents you from suffering any further dental pain and reduces the risk of decay spreading. An infected or decaying tooth can compromise the surrounding teeth and bone if left alone, leading to future problems.
If you suffer with discolored, missing, worn or damaged teeth, you know how everyday things like eating lunch or even smiling at a friend can be painful, uncomfortable, or even embarrassing. Things like improper dentistry or an overall level of neglect can create the need for comprehensive restorative treatment, or a full mouth restoration.
A gum graft is a collective name for surgical periodontal procedures that aim to cover an exposed tooth root surface with grafted oral tissue. Surgical material is used to protect the surgical area during the first week of healing. Uniformity and healing of the gums will be achieved in approximately six weeks.
If you have any questions about gum grafting, please ask your dentist.
Implant supported dentures provide better stability and comfort because the dentures are held in place by the implants. You can feel comfortable speaking, chewing, and laughing without the worry of your dentures slipping out.
The best candidates for implant supported denture are those with enough jawbone tissue to support the implants. Because additional surgeries to expose the implants and place the artificial teeth are needed, an elevated level of commitment is required from the ideal patient.
A dental exam is vital to good oral hygiene and is the best way to detect problems at their earliest stages. Early detection and treatment save unnecessary discomfort, time, and money.

Root canal therapy is performed when the pulp which is composed of nerves and blood vessels in the tooth becomes infected or damaged. Root canal therapy removes the infected or dying dental pulp from inside the tooth. Underneath the protective outer enamel is the root canal system which is made up of the dental pulp and nerve endings that keep the tooth healthy during development.
However, once the tooth has fully developed, it can survive without the dental pulp.
