Your smile is supposed to be beautiful. As much as chewing and speaking, looking good is an essential function of your teeth. Cosmetic dentistry allows us to correct complaints you may have about the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain veneers allow us to completely transform your smile. Porcelain veneers can help if your teeth are chipped, discolored, crooked, gapped, or just small or poorly shaped. DURAthin Veneers are a conservative alternative that for some people can get good results with lower cost and less preparation.
Have you wanted to straighten your teeth, but don’t want metal brackets and wires? If that’s the case, then you want Invisalign. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to move your teeth, so they’re practically invisible. And because they’re removable, there are no diet restrictions and no tough cleaning around your brackets.
Many people are unhappy because their teeth are discolored. Fortunately, most causes of tooth discoloration can be easily reversed with teeth whitening. You can get a bright, white, youthful smile.
Restorative dentistry (also called Full Mouth Reconstruction) can handle virtually any damage to your teeth, whether it’s caused by decay or by trauma. From small chips and cavities to cracked teeth to missing teeth, there’s almost no problem that can’t be corrected by modern restorative dentistry.
Dental implants are like getting another set of teeth. Anchored in your bone, these tooth replacements look and function like natural teeth. You just brush them and floss them like normal teeth. With proper care, they can last a lifetime.
In the past, dental crowns were often made out of metal, or sometimes metal with a thin layer of ceramic on the outside. Modern dental crowns can be made completely of advanced ceramics that are as strong as metals so they can stand up to the force of biting and chewing. And they look so natural no one will guess you have them!
An infected tooth isn’t just painful, it can be dangerous. But an infected tooth doesn’t have to be pulled. Root canal therapy can eliminate the infection and repair the tooth so that it can continue to look good and function for years or decades. And don’t worry–a root canal actually reduces pain more than causes it.
Many people are afraid of the dentist. Our dental office is probably more comfortable and welcoming than any office you have visited before. But if you’re still anxious, we offer sedation dentistry–including free nitrous oxide–to help you feel comfortable.
Gum disease is when bacteria infect the area around your teeth. Not only is this the leading cause of tooth loss, it’s a major contributor to diabetes, heart disease risk, and has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, and other health conditions.
Brushing and flossing are great ways to protect your teeth from caries (cavities), but sometimes they’re not enough. Carifree offers many simple ways to give your teeth additional protection, such as mouthwashes, even lollipops and gum.
We strive to make our patients comfortable, both in our office and after they leave. One thing many people dislike is staying numb for hours after an appointment, but with OraVerse, we can neutralize anesthesia so you can return to normal when you leave our office.
Lasers represent a truly amazing advance in dentistry. They can help with diagnosis and treatment of many dental conditions. They make your procedures more comfortable, more convenient, more accurate, and can foster your oral health.
Temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ) can cause jaw pain, locked jaw, headaches, tooth damage, and more symptoms. TMJ can be disruptive, even disabling, and it can be hard to find effective treatment. But the neuromuscular dentists at Excellence in Dentistry can diagnose and treat your TMJ.
Headaches are commonly misdiagnosed. This can be hard to deal with, as you go from one doctor to another trying to find someone who can identify the cause of your headaches and get you relief. Whether you’ve been diagnosed with tension headaches or migraines, we have a drug-free treatment that can reduce or eliminate your headaches.
