Basic dental cleanings are imperative to good oral hygiene. In addition to a healthy smile, cleanings will allow you to detect dental problems early to avoid complicated procedures later.
Fluoride is one of the most effective ways to prevent cavities, and remineralize and strengthen your teeth.
Sealants are applied to teeth to prevent cavities by sealing open areas of your teeth.
Athletic Mouth Guards
Customized mouth guards guarantee better fit over stock guards, and they are used to prevent dental emergencies for athletes.
Nightguard is a protective appliance to wear in sleep to keep the upper teeth from grinding against the lower teeth, which will prevent unnecessary wear and possible fractures.
Oral Cancer Screening
Like any kind of cancer, oral cancer can be life threatening if not diagnosed and treated early. If we find an area of concern, we may perform a simple test, such as a brush test, which collects cells from a suspicious lesion in the mouth to be sent to a laboratory for analysis.

Tooth Colored (White) Fillings
Tooth colored fillings are made from composite resins, and they are completely metal free. These fillings are much less noticeable than silver fillings as they resemble the color and texture of natural teeth.
Bonding is a composite resin filling that is used to restore decaying teeth, lighten stains, close up minor gaps, and correct crooked teeth.
Dental onlays are used to treat tooth decay that extends to more than one area of back teeth with porcelain, composite resin, and sometimes gold.
Dental inlays are used to treat tooth decay on only top surfaces of back teeth.
Composite and Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are a thin layer of restorative material placed over a tooth surface to improve the look of the tooth or protect a damaged tooth surface. Composite resin or porcelain are used as restorative material.
Porcelain crowns are tooth-shaped caps that are placed over the tooth to restore its shape, size, function, and most importantly esthetics.
Bridges (Fixed with or without Implants)
Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth, and they can be placed with or without implants.
Dentures (Removable or Fixed with Implants)
Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace partially or completely missing teeth.
Contouring and Reshaping
Tooth contouring and reshaping changes the size or shape of teeth so that slightly damaged or out of proportion teeth are corrected.
Clinical Crown Lengthening (Gummy Smile Correction)
Clinical crown lengthening is used when the gum is covering too much of the tooth.
Non-Surgical Treatment for Periodontal Disease (Deep Cleaning)
Non-surgical treatment for periodontal disease consists of deep cleanings known as scaling and root planing. It is needed when there is evidence of bone loss around the teeth.
Local Antibiotic Therapy
Targeted antibiotic therapy is used in sites with aggressive gum disease to fight persistent bacteria.
Periodontal surgery is used when the tissue around your teeth is unhealthy and cannot be repaired with non-surgical treatment.
Root Canal Therapy
Root Canal Therapy removes infected parts of the root and fills in the cleaned areas to save the tooth.
Infected part of the tooth in the pulp (nerves and blood vessels) are cleaned out. This procedure is usually limited to primary (baby) teeth, or as an emergency treatment for adult teeth.
Oral and Reconstructive Surgery
A dental implant is a titanium root used to replace a missing tooth with a crown on top or to connect to a denture.
Simple and Surgical Extractions
Simple and surgical extractions are performed to remove teeth that are not repairable.
Third Molar Extractions (Wisdom Teeth)
Third molar or wisdom teeth extractions, become necessary when there is pain from infection or the teeth are causing damage to other teeth.
