During a dental examination we will use instruments, tests, radiographs and clinical expertise to diagnose potential or existent disease states and pathologies. An individualized plan is developed to prevent or treat disease states of the oral cavity. In the case of cosmetic dentistry, we will work with you to identify your esthetic goals.
Dental fillings are used to repair damage to the structure of a tooth or teeth. Structural damage can be caused as a result of tooth decay, wear or trauma. After the removal of a problematic tooth structure, the tooth is restored with one of several filling materials: gold, amalgam, composite resin (white filling material) or porcelain. Each filling material has its advantages and disadvantages. We will work with you to determine which material is appropriate for you.
Bonding is the term used to describe the process of using composite resins to “glue” materials to the surface of a tooth for restorative purposes. Chipped or cracked teeth are typically repaired through bonding. An enamel-like composite material is applied to the surface of a tooth, sculpted into shape, contoured and polished, making the crack or chip invisible.
Misaligned teeth and malocclusions can be straightened and corrected with dental braces and retainers. Orthodontics is both a functional and cosmetic treatment, and has become an increasingly popular field of dentistry.
Dental crowns can repair extensively decayed or damaged teeth. Dental crowns can be made of gold metals, silver metals, porcelain or a combination of porcelain and metal. In some cases, conservative dental veneers may replace the need for a dental crown.
Dental bridges replace missing teeth with artificial replacements (pontic). The pontic is held in place by composite materials that are anchored to surrounding teeth. We may perform bridge procedures. Availability of the latest materials, technology and expertise varies among dentists.
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth or damaged teeth that cannot be otherwise repaired.
Early gum disease treatment may include tooth scaling and cleaning at three-month intervals along with use of medicated mouthwash and proper flossing. Later-stage gum disease treatment may include deep-plane scaling, periodontal surgery and laser surgery.
