Everybody loves a bright white smile, and there are a variety of products and procedures available to help you improve the look of yours. Whiteners may not correct all types of discoloration. When selecting a whitener you should be sure to look for the ADA seal. This will assure you that they have met standards for safety and effectiveness.

Restorations
A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function and integrity of missing tooth structure. We generally use two forms of fillings, amalgam and composite (white). Amalgam fillings are generally used where pressure to the teeth with be the greatest. Composite fillings provide good durability and resistance to fractures in teeth that withstand moderate chewing pressure.

Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screening is a necesary part of a routine dental examination. Regular check-ups include an examination of the entire mouth and are essential in the early detection of cancerous and pre-cancerous conditions. You may have a very small, but dangerous, oral spot or sore that only your dentist can detect.

Cosmetic and Restorative Procedures
You might be surprised what a more beautiful smile can do for you. Smile enhancement can create dramatic differences in your appearance and self-confidence. It can lead to professional advancement and enhancement of one's personal life. If you have chipped or discolored teeth your options may include composite bonding to flawed enamel, porcelain veneers, and porcelain crowns can close spaces, reshape, straighten, and permanently whiten teeth.

Crowns
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth – covering the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and/or to improve its appearance.

The crowns, when cemented into place, fully encase the entire visible portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line.

Dentures
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available - complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Bridge
A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap – these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth – and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

Partials
A removable partial denture or bridge usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.

Extractions
A tooth that is severely damaged may need to be removed. Before removing your tooth, your dentist will give you a local anesthetic to numb the area where the tooth will be removed. Removing a tooth is necessary when decay or an abscessed tooth is so severe that no other treatment will cure the infection.

Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment
Gingivitis, also generally called gum disease or periodontal disease, describes the events that begin with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end - if not properly treated - with tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue that surrounds your teeth
