What can I do if I am unhappy with my smile?
With the current dental technology available today, there is simply no need for anyone to go through life embarrassed or ashamed of their smile. New cosmetic dentistry procedures allow patients to completely transform their smile in just a few appointments. With porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, crowns, and more, we can design a smile that will complement your facial features and boost your self-esteem. Your new smile will be healthy, functional, and beautiful!
What do you provide to make a patient feel comfortable in your office?
Does the high-pitched sound of a dental drill make you uneasy? Do you ever wish you could watch TV or a DVD during your treatment? Do you wish you could “sleep” through your appointment and wake up feeling relaxed and refreshed?
We believe in making our patients as comfortable as possible during their appointments. When new technology is introduced, we incorporate that technology into our practice to make our treatments faster and more effective. From new silent electric drills to ceiling mounted televisions in every room, we offer the latest procedures, dental materials, and office equipment. If you are looking to transform your smile, don’t you deserve a dentist who has the best tools and training?
Why are porcelain veneers so popular?
Porcelain veneers are gaining in popularity because they offer an attractive fix for everything from stained and discolored teeth to crooked and damaged smiles. Porcelain veneers are beautiful, durable, stain-resistant, and take only a few weeks to fabricate and place in the mouth. Patients who want to want to avoid the embarrassment of orthodontics can instead choose porcelain veneers to cover crooked or misaligned teeth and instantly remake their smile.
I can’t seem to get rid of my bad breath. Are there any treatment options for halitosis?
Even if you brush every day, you may still suffer from halitosis if bacteria remains in your mouth. We have introduced the new BreathRx® cleaning system into our practice to eliminate the bacteria that causes bad breath. Combined with regular cleanings and preventative care, the new BreathRx® system allows us to effectively treat halitosis with an easy three step cleaning system.
What are the advantages of dental implants?
Dental implants are attractive, permanent, easy to maintain, and feel just like your natural teeth. After an artificial tooth has been attached to a dental implant, the new tooth requires no more maintenance and care than your other teeth. With dental implants, you will not have to deal with ill-fitting dentures and your mouth will finally feel secure. Implants will also help to strengthen and stabilize your bite.
How exactly does sedation dentistry work?
Our practice offers sedation with nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide does not render patients unconscious, it simply puts them in a very relaxed state. Because the nitrous gas is inhaled, its effects are almost immediate. During your procedure, you will be conscious and able to respond to questions, but you will feel extremely relaxed. After treatment, the effects of the nitrous oxide will quickly wear off, and after a brief rest you will be able to drive yourself home!
Can I afford cosmetic dentistry?
There are many different cosmetic dentistry treatments available at our practice, each varying significantly in cost. Some treatments, including teeth whitening, are relatively inexpensive. For more extensive restorations, the costs will depend entirely upon the type of procedure(s) required and the extent of the treatment. Our practice accepts several forms of payment, and we are always happy to assist our patients with payment plans.
