Although twice-daily brushings and regular flossing are excellent for maintenance between office visits, regular examinations, cleanings, and even fluoride treatments, are an absolute necessity if you are to maintain a healthy mouth. Our staff will help you keep your teeth and gums strong and disease-free. To schedule a cleaning or consultation, please contact our office today.
Periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile—it can cause loss of teeth and, eventually, if left untreated, serious health problems. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attack your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of the disease include red, swollen, bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage or, if detected late, we can use one of many effective cosmetic dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to a healthy, beautiful state.
Crowns and Bridges
For teeth that are damaged or decayed, crowns can be the perfect solution. Porcelain crowns fit over damaged teeth, restoring their strength, health, and beauty. Crowns can be matched to your natural tooth color so the fact that you have had dental work is easily concealed.
Veneers are a terrific cosmetic solution for permanently stained, chipped, discolored, misaligned teeth, or even to revitalize old crown and bridgework. In just two or three dental visits, a veneer can reverse years of stains caused by foods, caffeine and tobacco use. Special thin laminates, called veneers, can also be used to correct discolored, worn down, cracked and chipped teeth. Veneers can also be used to close unsightly gaps between teeth. Stronger types of veneers made of porcelain, also called composite veneers, typically last longer because they are bonded to the tooth.
As you age, you may begin to notice that your teeth aren't quite the same shade of white that they were in your youth. Typically, noticeable discoloration begins in the late 20s and early 30s. A variety of factors can speed up the discoloration process including chemical staining from drinking caffeine and smoking, a genetic predisposition to early yellowing, and the onset of gum and tooth disease. Cosmetic dentists have a very extensive choice of tooth whitening systems. The level of whiteness that can be achieved will depend on the level of discoloration of the teeth and how they came to be stained.

Before & After...." Say Cheese"
We perform all root canals except in the rarest of cases. Not all teeth are alike and may require special training and equipment to be done properly. The Doctor works closely with a highly trained endodontist to ensure you receive the best treatment available. To learn more about root canals, please contact us today.
In only the most extreme and necessary cases—such as when its roots are severely damaged beyond repair—we may extract a tooth in preparation for a restorative dentistry procedure, such as a bridge, a partial, or dentures. If you have any questions about tooth extraction, please contact us today.
Full or Partial Dentures
Dentures can help take the place of missing natural teeth. Dentures allow a patient chew and speak more easily while improving appearance and often boosting self-confidence. Full dentures are used when all of a patients teeth need to be replaced. Partial dentures are used when only a few teeth are missing. In either case, dentures can help you look and feel your best.
