We Welcome New Patients

 

On your first visit we want to get acquainted with you as well as with your medical and dental history.

We will perform a thorough clinical examination of your teeth and gums, and take diagnostic digital x-rays of your teeth.

We will make every effort to provide a treatment plan, which fits your timetable and budget while giving you the best possible care. Our experienced staff will be glad to review your coverage with you. As an added courtesy, we will complete your claim forms for you at no charge.

 

Frequently asked questions answered by our doctors

How often should I see the dentist for a check up and cleaning?

Every six months. Dental decay takes about six months to burrow through enamel down to the soft part of the tooth. After one year, it can reach the nerveā€”in which case the tooth must be treated with a root canal. Most teeth are lost from gum disease rather than decay. Dental cleanings prevent gum disease by eliminating the plaque that grows under the gums and loosens the teeth. Having an exam and cleaning every six months will minimize extensive dental work in the long run. 

I would like to have my teeth whitened. What do you recommend?

Everybody's teeth whiten to a different degree. Some whiten Drastically, while others will change very little or not at all. We recommend people try an over-the-counter system first. If you see results, that suggests your teeth are receptive to whitening and we can make them even whiter. If, however, you see no change at all, our doctors can create custom veneers to create the whiteness you desire.

 

What are Veneers?

Veneers are thin porcelain coverings that are bonded to the front of a tooth to change, straighten, whiten or correct the shape. The bonding is painless and usually no drilling is necessary. Veneers are extremely long-lasting. Many of our patients have had the same veneers for over 25 years.

 

What are dental implants?

Implants are long lasting titanium inserts the size of a tooth root. They're placed inside the jawbone to hold a cosmetically attractive tooth, hold a denture in place, or replace a missing tooth and restore chewing ability.

 

Who needs braces and why?

Anybody who is self-concious or won't smile normally because of crooked teeth. Occasionally, patients need braces for health reasons. But the biggest benefit is an improved smile and self-image.
