Bridges help to maintain the shape of your face, as well as to alleviate the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth.
Dental researchers are continuing their often decades-long work developing materials, such as ceramics and polymer compounds, that look more like natural teeth. Patients today have several choices when it comes to selecting materials to repair missing, worn, damaged, or decayed teeth.
When having an extraction, today's modern procedures and follow up care, as recommended by your dentist, are there to provide you, the patient, with great benefit and comfort.
If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or injury, complete dentures can replace your missing teeth and your smile. You’ll be able to eat and speak—things that people often take for granted until their natural teeth are lost.
Removable partial dentures usually consist of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases, which are connected by metal framework.
A crown can make your tooth stronger and improve its appearance. It can cover and support a tooth with a large filling when there isn't enough tooth left, attach a bridge, and protect a weak tooth from breaking. It can also restore one that's already broken. A crown is a good way to cover teeth that are discolored or badly shaped.

In certain circumstances where minor cosmetic corrections are needed for crowding, too much space, or shifted teeth, we offer a minor orthodontic procedure known as SureSmile Aligners. SureSmile Aligners are a series of clear plastic aligners intended for the "cosmetic six" upper and lower front teeth. Some cases that may be more advanced and complex in nature will require a referral to an orthodontist. Contact us for a consultation to identify if you are a candidate for SureSmile.
Routine Dental Care & Examinations
There are many benefits to maintaining a healthy mouth, such as the prevention of heart disease. Without routine dental care, plaque builds up on your teeth and gums and can lead to periodontal disease, making you more vulnerable to heart disease, clogged arteries, and even strokes. The bottom line is that good oral care is imperative to your overall well being. Be sure to come see us at least every six months to ensure that your oral health is at its best.
A properly fitted mouth guard can help prevent broken teeth and injuries to the lips, tongue, face, or jaw. Have a custom mouth guard made specifically for you if you participate in athletics.
Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. The sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars) where decay occurs most often.
You don’t have to live with gaps in your teeth or with teeth that are stained, poorly shaped or crooked. A veneer placed on top of your teeth can correct the cards you were dealt or the results of an injury and ensure you have a beautiful smile. Porcelain Veneers are thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth. They are strong and virtually impossible to distinguish from actual teeth.
Mini Dental Implants
Crowns and conventional bridges or dentures may not be your only options when replacing missing teeth. For some people, mini dental implants offer a smile that looks and feels as natural as their own teeth. Surgically placed below the gums over a series of appointments, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges, or a denture.
Mini Dental Implants offer stability because they fuse to your bone. Integration of the implants into your jaw also helps your replacement teeth feel more natural and many people find the secure fit more comfortable than conventional substitutes.
