Dental Crowns

A Crown to Repair Tooth Damage
Crowns may be necessary to save a damaged tooth when a filling can’t restore it to full function. A crown will salvage and even strengthen the damaged tooth. We use advanced materials to construct your crown. Our crowns are created from the best-quality materials available. They look so natural, you won’t be able to tell them apart from real teeth.

Custom Dental Mouthguards

Avoiding Tooth Damage While Playing Sports 
You might not know that 5 million teeth are knocked out yearly in the United States. Many sports can be downright dangerous without protection using a mouthguard. The one-size-fits-all mouthguards found in department stores don’t have a good fit. Wearing these, proper breathing can be a struggle while running in sports. However, custom-made sports mouthguards fit perfectly, protect well, and are worn for any type of sport. The American Dental Association recommends wearing a custom mouthguard for all of these sports: Basketball, boxing, football, gymnastics, martial arts, racquetball, skateboarding, skiing, soccer, volleyball, weight lifting, wrestling.

Senior Dental Care

Caring for Our Oldest Patients 

As our bodies age over time, so do our teeth and gums. Years of plaque buildup, as well as drinking coffee, tea, or red wine, can darken your smile. Ask our team about procedures that can combat these issues. Lowered saliva flow is often a side effect from medications. There are simple products that can help alleviate this condition. Your fillings are also aging. They can begin to weaken or crack. Regular check-ups allow us to stay on top of your existing fillings. Gum disease and decay can be bigger problems with seniors. Daily brushing and proper nutrition are important for healthy gums. If your gums become red, begin to bleed, or your teeth start to loosen, contact us immediately.

Choosing Wisely: 5 Things Every Family Should Know About Dental Health (Part 3 of 3)

Don’t replace fillings just because they’re old 












When you have a cavity, the dentist removes it and puts in a filling. These fillings can last for many years, but some people get silver fillings removed because they don’t like the color. However, the process of removing a filling can weaken the tooth. Additionally, insurance may not cover the removal.
