Take-home whitening gel

Appropriate concentration of Carbamide Peroxide or Hydrogen Peroxide gel is given to the patient to be placed in specially made whitening trays to be used at home with a specified frequency.

One visit in-office whitening

A single appointment procedure whereby an appropriate whitening gel is used on the teeth with proper isolation leading to significant whitening of the teeth. This procedure is more expensive than the take-home whitening as it requires the use of the in-office operatory and the time of the care provider; however, many patients find it much more convenient and efficient than take-home whitening.

Referral to a Periodontist

When a General Dentist feels that the presenting gum tissue situation is more complicated than can be addressed by the general dentist, a referral is made to the Periodontist who is a dental specialist with specific training in alleviating diseases of the gums.

My baby tooth is loose and hurting

Splint teeth temporarily

There are times when one or more teeth are mobile and need to be joined together temporarily to prevent further mobility. In time, such teeth do tighten up leading to longevity of the tooth or teeth.

I grind my teeth

Neuromuscular analysis

An involved analysis to ascertain the balance among teeth, jaw joints and muscles that surround the jaws. This requires the use of a TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation). This can be understood as an electronic massage. Further computer equipment analysis may be needed for the more difficult situations.

Night guard

Whether you are aware of grinding your teeth or not, the wear will show and negatively affect your oral health. We custom-fit night guards to ensure your smile and sleep quality are protected.

Partial or Full Restorations

Fillings, Inlays and Onlays are examples of Partial Restorations made out of Resin material, Reinforced Resin material, Porcelain and even Gold. Full coverage Restorations are typically made using Porcelain Fused to Metal, full core Zirconia or even Gold. All of these restorations are bonded to the tooth structures to provide longevity. Lately, there has been a tendency to NOT use metals for restorations, and so “gold” is out of favor.

Smile Analysis

The dentist completes a visual analysis of the relationship among the anterior teeth and the rest of the face and head of the presenting patient. Although we can utilize some “Objective and Topological” norms that lead to a beautiful smile, an overall feel of the smile using subjective parameters is also important customized for each patient.

Porcelain restorations

Replacement of some or all of the tooth material with man-made porcelain (glass-like) material. This material can be sculpted to give life like aesthetic end results and is generally bonded to the existing tooth to give it strength.
