- Teeth WhiteningA safe and effective technique for patients with yellow, brown or orange tinge teeth due to age, stains, or tobacco usage. It is a simple cosmetic procedure to brighten anyone's smile.
- RestorationsA composite (white) or amalgam (silver) filling is often used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay.
- CrownsA crown is a cap or covering which encases the entire tooth restoring it to its original shape. A crown is necessary in certain situations where a filling is inappropriate. A crown is often necessary when a tooth is broken or cracked.
- ImplantsAn artificial tooth that is surgically placed into the lower or upper jaw bone. Implants are used to replace missing or undesirable teeth and offer very appealing cosmetic solutions.
- BridgesA fixed dental appliance used to replace missing teeth. It consists of two crowns which fit over two anchored teeth while holding artificial teeth, filling a toothless interval.
- Root CanalThis procedure is required when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. In order to save a problematic tooth, the tissue inside the tooth is removed and the space is filled with special medicated dental substance which will restore the tooth to its full function.
- Dentures/PartialsRemovable dental appliances used to replace missing teeth which can be for the patient's entire mouth tooth structure or a part.
- SedationTo provide the patient with a pleasant and comfortable experience Nitrous Oxide, often called "laughing gas", is available during dental procedures. It works fast to relax the patient and wears off quickly. Nitrous Oxide is quite safe when professionally administered and is extremely useful for reducing patient anxieties.
