General Dentistry

How often should I visit the dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends that every adult visit the dentist at least once every six months. This ensures that all your routine maintenance is taken care of and that your dentist can spot potential dental problems before they worsen.

How do I keep my teeth healthy?

Excellent oral health requires a mutual effort between yourself and your dentist. At home, you should brush your teeth at least twice a day and floss after every meal. When you come to the dentist for your routine care, consider a professional teeth cleaning to eliminate plaque and tartar buildup.

One of the best methods of avoiding tooth decay is with dental sealants. This treatment involves brushing a plastic compound onto the biting surface of your teeth which hardens and serves as a protective layer that keeps out acids, sugars, and bacteria.

Do you offer emergency services? 

Yes. Our office makes every effort to provide treatment on the same day to those who need it. If you want to know if you are experiencing an emergency, you can read more here.

Restorative Care

What is dental bonding?

Dental bonding is the use of a composite resin to fix minor damage to a tooth or cover up a gap or similar flaw. This procedure is quick and unintrusive and can be completed in a single visit.

Do I need dental crowns?

Crowns are hollow prosthetic caps that are shaped and colored to look like natural teeth. These devices are used to cap dental implants or cover a damaged tooth to prevent further damage.

How do I know if I need a tooth extraction? 

Dental extractions are often necessary procedures to preserve the health of your smile. Extractions are the preferred treatment option for impacted teeth, broken teeth below the gumline, and removal of a severely infected tooth.

Cosmetic Dentistry

What are veneers?

Veneers are thin shells made from a composite resin or porcelain used to cover minor dental imperfections. Your dentist might recommend veneers to hide stains, cracks, chips, or gaps.

Are dentures right for me?

Dentures are an ideal treatment option for people who have lost most or all their upper or lower row of teeth. The prosthetic devices are custom-made to fit your mouth and are removable for added convenience. For those looking for a more permanent option, fixed dentures can adhere in place with dental implants.

How do I get rid of dental stains?

The most effective method of removing stains and natural yellowing of the teeth is with a professional teeth whitening treatment.  In just one visit, your dentist will apply a powerful bleaching agent that will improve the appearance of your smile by several shades.
