We correct a wide variety of so-called "permanent" dental problems:
- Missing teeth, gaps between teeth, general bite dysfunction
- Chipped, cracked or worn teeth
- Unsightly, stained, or washed-out fillings
- Permanently stained or discolored teeth
- Crooked or crowded teeth
General Preventative and Comfort Dentistry
Our practice offers preventive care that includes regular oral examinations, oral cancer screening, cleanings and fluoride treatment, sealants, professional breath control, and periodontal (gum disease) treatments designed to help you maintain your smile's health and beauty. Keep your teeth and gums strong and disease-free.
Our goal is to make your dental experience as comfortable as possible. To help us achieve this along with a caring, friendly attitude we offer the following amenities. Nitrous Oxide gas (commonly called "laughing gas") reduces anxiety so you can relax and feel completely comfortable during your treatment. Each room is equipped with a flat screen TV allowing each patient to watch a DVD of their choice, or simply relax in a memory foam patient chairs are all part of the superior care and service we try to provide.
Cosmetic Dentistry: Smile Makeovers
Cosmetic dentistry is the art & science of enhancing your smile. As master aesthetic dentists, our doctors can give you a radiant smile in as little as a week.
The key to your perfect smile, the smile that you see on celebrities in the movies and on television, starts with the treatment planning stage. Photographs from all angles are taken and analyzed. Models of your mouth are taken and mock-ups of an ideal smile are created. Temporary restorations are placed so you can see the results before your beautiful smile is permanently yours.
Tooth Color Restoration
Many people still have silver/mercury fillings from years past in their mouths. These fillings are not particularly pleasing to the eye, and weaken the teeth, making them more susceptible to breaking. New generation composites replace the old silver fillings. Chipped and damaged teeth are repaired using a tooth colored material that is sculpted into the defect and fused with arc light technology for maximum strength and durability. The result is the filling is indistinguishable from the tooth.
This procedure uses combinations of nitrous oxide and oxygen gases which are inhaled by the patient through a rubber face mask. Here are some questions you may have regarding nitrous:
Is This Safe?
Nitrous oxide is a perfectly safe and simple drug to use. The strength of the sedative effect depends upon the concentration of nitrous oxide that is inhaled. The effects of nitrous oxide are easily controlled by the patient simply breathing more or less room air through the mouth.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
The effects of the gas wear off quite quickly after the mask is removed.
Is it For Me?
This gas does produce a feeling of well-being and euphoria combined with a feeling of good self-control whilst the treatment is being performed. Children tend to respond better to nitrous oxide than most of the other techniques.
What are the Draw-Backs?
Nitrous oxide can have long-term effects on the dentists and their staff due to the inhalation of escaped gases. As a result of this many dentists prefer not to use nitrous oxide in their practices. Although nitrous oxide itself is cheap the equipment used to perform the procedure is very expensive. Thus few practices may have the necessary machinery.
