Initial Oral Examination: During a dental examination we diagnose potential
or existent disease states and pathologies. We develop an individual plan to prevent
or treat disease states of the oral cavity.Your initial oral examination includes a
visual examination, charting, periodontal probing, diagnosis and treatment
recommendations. We will also take x-rays, which includes the panoramic x-ray for
proper diagnosis of the anterior (front) and posterior (back) teeth as well as the
bite-wing x-ray series for proper diagnosis of proximal decay of posterior teeth.
Dental Fillings: Used to repair damage to the structure of a tooth or teeth.
Structural damage can be caused as a result of tooth decay, wear or trauma.

Bonding: Bonding is the term used to describe the process of using composite
resins to "glue" materials to the surface of a tooth for restorative purposes. Chipped
or cracked teeth are typically repaired through bonding.

Orthodontics: Misaligned teeth and malocclusions can be straightened and
corrected with dental braces and retainers. Orthodontics is both a functional and
cosmetic treatment, and has become an increasingly popular field of dentistry.

Root Canals: Root canal therapy removes infected pulp tissue within the root
chamber of the tooth. The hollowed-out tooth is filled with an antibacterial filling,
and the tooth is "capped" with a crown for protection. Endodontics specializes in
performing root canal therapy, though general dentists also often perform the restorative

Dental Crowns: can repair extensively decayed or damaged teeth. In some cases,
conservative dental veneers may replace the need for a dental crown.

Dental Bridges: replace missing teeth with artificial replacements which are
held in place by composite materials that are anchored to surrounding teeth.

Dentures: used to replace missing teeth or damaged teeth that cannot be

Oral and Maxillofacial Procedures: range from the less invasive treatment
of abnormalities of the mouth, jaw and face - including accompanying structures such
as the teeth - to major oral surgeries.

Periodontal Treatment: Early gum disease treatment may include tooth scaling
and cleaning at three-month intervals along with use of medicated mouthwash and proper
flossing. Later-stage gum disease treatment may include deep-plane scaling, periodontal
surgery and laser surgery.

Laser Procedures: In some cases, laser dentistry can replace the need to drill
teeth or to use other, more invasive dental equipment. Dental lasers can be used during
a bonding procedure and to remove tooth decay, replace scaling, perform periodontal surgery,
enhance tooth whitening and treat some forms of sleep apnea.

Inlays/Onlays: Also known as indirect fillings, inlays and onlays made from
porcelain or composite materials are a long-lasting yet cosmetic way to provide a "filling"
to teeth with tooth decay or similar structural damage. Whereas dental fillings are molded
into place within the mouth during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are created in a dental
laboratory before being fitted and adhesively bonded into place by your dentist.

Composite Bonding: Chipped, broken, discolored or decayed teeth may be repaired
or have their appearance corrected using a procedure called composite bonding. A dental
composite material with the look of enamel and dentin is applied into the cavity or onto
the surface of a tooth, where it is then sculpted into shape, contoured and hardened with
a high-intensity light. The result is a restoration that blends invisibly with the remainder
of the surrounding tooth structure and the rest of your natural teeth to create a healthy,

Teeth Whitening: Teeth whitening is perhaps the most commonly recommended
cosmetic dentistry procedure. Teeth are often stained from smoking, food, drink (coffee,
tea or red wine) or poor oral hygiene. Bleaching the teeth can enhance the appearance
of your smile.

Dental veneers or Porcelain veneers (laminates): Porcelain veneers are thin,
custom made to match the size, shape, length and color of your natural teeth. They
are bonded to the front of your existed teeth, look like your natural teeth, durable
and stain resistant. Once you select their desired color, the veneers will stay this
way, without color changes over time. Most patients wear them for at least 10-15 year
before they need to have their veneers replaced. If porcelain veneers chipped or
cracked they can be replaced any time.

Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements that
are used as a part of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry in order to
compensate for tooth loss. Often the result is not only an enhanced smile, but also
a more youthful appearance, since missing teeth cause the face to collapse, making
you look older.

Smile Makeover: Smile makeovers involve a comprehensive assessment of your
smile esthetics in order to improve its overall appearance. Typically one or more
cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental veneers, dental implants, gingival
sculpting and teeth whitening, will be required for several teeth in both the upper
and lower arches in order to achieve the look you want.

Full mouth reconstruction: While consulting with you about a smile makeover
to primarily improve the esthetic appearance of your smile, your dentist may discover
that there is a need to provide necessary treatment to correct functional problems
with your bite, muscles, teeth and bone structure. If you need full mouth reconstruction,
the materials available today make it possible for your dentist to provide you with
durable, functional and clinically sound treatments that also look natural.
