Absolutely! We welcome new patients of all ages. Whether you're looking for a routine check-up or more specialized dental care, we're here to help.
Dental crowns are caps that cover damaged or decayed teeth to restore their shape, size, and function. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to the adjacent natural teeth. Both options help maintain your smile and improve oral health.
With proper care, crowns and bridges can last many years, often 10-15 years or more. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene practices are key to their longevity.
Implant restoration involves placing a dental implant, which is a titanium post, into the jawbone to act as a replacement for a missing tooth root. After the implant has integrated with the bone, we attach a crown to the top, providing a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth.
Most patients report minimal discomfort during the implant procedure. We use local anesthesia to ensure the area is numb, and we also offer sedation options for those who may be anxious. Post-procedure discomfort can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Restorative dentistry focuses on repairing and restoring damaged teeth. This includes procedures like fillings, crowns, bridges, implants, and root canals. Our goal is to restore the function and appearance of your teeth.
If you're experiencing tooth pain, sensitivity, visible damage, or have missing teeth, you might need restorative dental work. During your visit, we will thoroughly examine your teeth and recommend the best treatment options for you.
Teeth whitening involves using a bleaching agent to lighten the color of your teeth. We offer professional in-office whitening treatments that provide quick and effective results. We also provide take-home whitening kits for your convenience.
Yes, when performed by a dental professional, teeth whitening is safe. We take precautions to protect your gums and other parts of your mouth during the treatment. However, some patients may experience temporary sensitivity.
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on improving the appearance of your smile. This can include procedures like teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, and contouring. Our goal is to help you achieve the smile you've always wanted.
Yes, depending on the severity of the misalignment, cosmetic procedures like veneers or bonding can help improve the appearance of slightly crooked teeth. For more significant cases, orthodontic treatments might be recommended.
We recommend having your teeth professionally cleaned every six months. Regular cleanings help prevent cavities and gum disease and maintain overall oral health.
During a teeth cleaning appointment, our hygienist will remove plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth, polish your teeth to remove surface stains, and floss between your teeth. We also check for any signs of dental issues and provide tips for maintaining good oral hygiene at home.
