Cavities & Decay

Tooth Stains

We offer a couple of whitening procedures to brighten your teeth and return the smile to your face.

Missing Teeth

We can restore your smile, as well as speaking & eating ability with advanced prosthetics.

Teeth Whitening

While there are many over-the-counter whitening products you could purchase, the bleach will be weaker than that which a dentist uses. Spreading the bleach yourself could also lead to mottled teeth. Let us apply our own bleach to your teeth, removing coffee, wine, tea, tobacco, and other stains from them in as little as two or three visits. Note, however, that intrinsic stains (such as stains caused by internal bleeding of the tooth) will not be affected.

Teeth Cleaning

Ideally, teeth cleanings should be done twice a year to prevent gum disease, tooth loss, and other serious conditions. Our dental hygienist will remove the plaque that has accumulated on your teeth, especially in those areas that brushing and flossing can't reach. You could also get your teeth polished. If the plaque has hardened into tartar, don't worry because we can perform a deep cleaning, also known as scaling and root planing.

Teeth Fillings

Tooth decay, when not addressed through preventative care, leads to cavities. At this stage, your only option is to get a filling for the tooth before it gets infected. Our clinic can easily pack the cavity with a gold or amalgam filling, and if you're self-conscious about the appearance, you could request a tooth-colored composite resin filling. We'll help you choose the right material based on cost and the ability to withstand chewing and moisture.

Single Canal Root Canals

If you've noticed that a tooth is unusually sensitive to hot and cold, darkening in color, and sending out sharp pain, the problem may lie in an infected pulp. Pulp decay can also be aggravated through cracks, dental trauma, and repeated dental services on the same tooth. After we X-ray the teeth and determine the level of decay, we'll remove the pulp via a root canal treatment. If the tooth is too decayed to be saved, our oral surgeon will extract it.

Dentures

A full denture can restore your mouth by replacing the entire upper and lower jaws with durable artificial teeth. You can choose between a fixed or removable denture. Fixed dentures, also called implants, make use of titanium posts that are inserted through the gum and fuse with the jawbone; these will prevent jawbone deterioration and cut down on the need for future readjustments.

Teeth Partials

A partial denture is similar to a bridge and can be either fixed or removable. This is what you would request if you retain one or more natural teeth. However, if you would like to make way for a full denture, our oral surgeon will extract the remaining teeth. Sometimes, after a tooth extraction, we fit our patients with an immediate denture, which is a temporary partial denture meant to protect the sensitive tissues and reestablish one's ability to speak.

Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns are caps that are bonded over teeth for a variety of reasons. For example, they can cover up chips, cracks, and intrinsic stains; fill in gaps between teeth; and alter the size of small or misshapen teeth. They come in materials ranging from gold alloys to porcelain. If you choose to get a crown, we might recommend teeth whitening beforehand so that the crowns don't stand out. It's important to fill in any gaps made by missing teeth; otherwise, the surrounding teeth will drift and start to change your bite. For a gap made by two or more missing teeth, consider dental bridges. These are prosthetic devices that consist of a row of replacement teeth flanked by two crowns, called abutment teeth. Note that before crowns are installed, our dentist may need to grind down the enamel on the teeth.
