By using the newest technology available, we have improved the speed of treatments by minimizing the number of visits required to achieve amazing results.

Each of out clients start out with an appointment to have their X-rays taken. Our digital radiographs (X-rays) reduce your radiation exposure by up to 80%. Digital radiography has allowed us to capture pictures of your teeth faster, easier and more comfortably than ever before! Our team uses digital radiography and in office computer monitors to help you see and understand any problem that may need treatment. Intraoral Camera: A picture is worth a thousand word!. Our dental camera can take pictures of your teeth to show you what we see in a non-invasive, pain-free way!
Whether you have an avulsed (knocked out) tooth, lost a crown or a filling or you chipped, cracked or broke a few teeth, our Emergency dental services can get you out of pain and repair the damage done.
ROOT CANAL THERAPY
A root canal is often needed when a cavity, crack or trauma has caused the nerve to die. Also, if a tooth is “infected” an abscess will result, and a root canal is the treatment of choice to save the tooth.
We use tooth-colored composite as a tooth filling material. The material is very esthetic and is a more conservative treatment when compared to the silver amalgam fillings. With composite fillings, only the decayed portion of the tooth is removed. The adhesive is placed between the tooth and the composite is bonded to the tooth. In general, composites allow for smaller, conservative fillings and that helps maintain a tooth’s longevity.
Ultrasonic teeth cleaning
For patients with tartar build up or who do not enjoy the traditional “tooth scraping’ instruments: Our team utilizes state of the art ultrasonic cleaning instruments (like a ‘sonicare toothbrush’) to clean your teeth with very fine vibrations and a water spray to remove tartar, or dental calculus, from your teeth.
Crowns (AKA “caps”) are a porcelain covering that is used to protect a broken tooth and/or alter the shape, color and appearance of a tooth. Crowns are used on teeth that have large fillings, cracks and/or root canals. Also, crowns are used in cosmetic cases to complete ‘smile makeovers.’
Veneers are porcelain coverings that are bonded to the front of your teeth. They are used to alter the color, shape, and even alignment of your teeth with minimum alteration to the enamel. Modern porcelain crowns are very life aesthetic and match exactly the adjacent teeth. Front teeth are usually the most common teeth to receive veneers.
