A crown is a porcelain cover, custom made to fit over a badly decayed or damaged tooth. If the damage is extensive, a root canal may also be needed. A bridge consists of 3 or more crowns in a row that get attached together. These can be used when replacing a missing tooth.
Digital X-rays and Dental CT scans are used to get a better picture of the inside of your teeth. X-rays give a 2D picture while a Dental CT scanner gives a 3D image of your entire mouth.
Inlays and Onlays are similar to fillings, and bonded directly to the tooth. They restore a damaged or decayed tooth by filling the space in between the cusps (inlay) or covering more of the tooth’s surface (onlay). These are a great option when you need more than a filling, but aren’t ready for a crown.
Dental fillings are used to repair teeth that have been affected by cavities, decay or damage. We use a white, composite material that is tinted to the color of your tooth.
A root canal is a treatment used to preserve a badly damaged and infected tooth. It involves removing the affected area (the pulp), cleaning out the inside of the tooth, and then filling/sealing it.
Sometimes a root canal is not enough to save a tooth. When that’s the case, a tooth extraction is needed. Anesthesia is used to ensure the procedure is as pain-free and comfortable as possible.
A dental implant restores your smile by replacing a missing or damaged tooth. A small titanium rod is implanted into the jaw bone, creating a base for the new tooth.
Teeth Whitening will remove discoloration and staining by lightening the color of your teeth. We will fit you for a custom molded tray and give you a high strength gel for use at home.
Dental work can often cause anxiety and uneasiness. We offer oral sedation which involves taking a prescription pill an hour before your appointment. This will relieve your anxiety and make you drowsy. You might even fall asleep during your procedure.
Invisalign gently straightens teeth by using a series of removable, clear, plastic aligners. This is a great way to enhance your smile as an alternative to traditional metal braces.
Nitrous Oxide aka “Laughing Gas”
Nitrous Oxide is most commonly referred to as “laughing gas”, and is used during dental procedures to help relax nerves and anxiety. It is given through a mask on the nose, and is mixed directly with oxygen. Nitrous Oxide is a mild form of sedation.
Dentures are removable frames that hold replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. The replacement teeth are attached to a gum-colored (pink) plastic base that fits in your mouth.
