Diagnostic and preventative dental services
We offer complete exams, x-rays, and dental cleanings. Preventive care is our primary goal. We are to prevent, evaluate, diagnose, and treat diseases of the oral cavity and maintain the function and appearance of the teeth for you.
Want to Improve Your Smile? Cosmetic Dentistry can change your smile. Cosmetic dentistry includes all the positive things that change the look of your smiles, such as whitening, orthodontics, extension, and tooth formation. These steps increase your confidence in your smile and provide you with mental and physical health benefits.
Crowns and Caps
A dental crown and a dental cap are the same things. The crown lasts up to 15 years, depending on the amount of wear (oral-related habits such as vigorous chewing). Once you have the crown and caps installed, there is no way you can whiten them. If your teeth or crowns cause pain, cracks, or are noticeable between the teeth, make an appointment for treatment.
Dental Fillings and Repairs
Fillings are used not only for cavity fillings but also for repairing cracked, broken, or misused teeth. Before filling the cavities, apply local anesthesia to the teeth, gums, and surrounding skin to avoid and reduce discomfort during the procedure. Then drill out tooth rot and replaces it with stuffing. Don't try to fix a broken dental filling on your own. Make an appointment right away!
A dental implant is a metal post(s), usually made in titanium, placed in your jaw to replace a missing tooth root attached to a custom crown, bridge, or dentures.
