Everyone loves the smooth, glassy surface of freshly polished teeth. Our registered dental hygienists help you maintain optimal health, which goes far beyond polished enamel. With a regular preventive schedule, we can remove the bacterial deposits that lead to dental disease. We also monitor for silent problems, such as tooth decay or gum disease before they become major issues. Optimal dental health results from a healthy partnership between you and us. While we can provide critical support, your efforts every day make all the difference.
Sometimes dental problems follow otherwise healthy people through life. Understanding the causes behind dental disease can eliminate the frustration that builds as teeth deteriorate. Creating a customized preventive routine can leave you looking forward to the good news at your dental visits.
Metal grins fill the pages of many high school yearbooks. Braces offer benefits at many different stages of life. Identifying problems at an early age often allows ideal timing in orthodontic treatment, resulting in a perfect outcome. Monitoring growth and development at your child’s regular preventive visits is just part of our commitment to your family’s dental health.
Fillings are used for small areas of decay or other damage to a tooth. We offer attractive tooth-colored fillings that can protect your teeth and may restore some of their strength. They are also mercury-free so you don’t have to worry about the risks associated with that toxic metal.
If your tooth is too damaged to benefit from a filling or if its unattractive appearance means you want to cover it, a dental crown can achieve that for you. Even if your tooth is badly damaged, a dental crown can make it look beautiful and function just like new.
