Oral Hygiene & Periodontal Disease - Our hygienist focus on comprehensive methods of preventing periodontal disease. Thorough screenings and digital x-rays, combined with prompt care, help our hygienists assist you in maintaining your oral health.

Scaling and Root Planing – In cases of periodontal disease, our hygienists perform the removal of plaque, calculus, and stain from the crown and root surfaces of teeth. Smooth roots provide less opportunity for bacteria to hang out and form calculus. In periodontal disease, pockets form that are deeper than the usual gingival depth and scaling and root planing are often referred to as deep cleaning.

Fluoride Treatments - Fluoride treatments help prevent decay, and keep the teeth in place, making them less vulnerable to bacteria. We recommend regular fluoride treatments for younger patients and for adult patients who are still at risk for tooth decay or sensitivity.

Teeth Whitening - Using the Zoom™ (http://www.zoomnow.com/aboutwhitening.php) or LUMA (http://www.luma-lite.com/html/patient_info.html) in-office teeth whitening systems, we can give you noticeably whiter teeth in about an hour!

Bruxism (Teeth Grinding) - Do you wake up in the morning with a headache or sore facial muscles? Are your teeth sensitive to cold or touch? If so, you may be suffering from bruxism, also known as teeth grinding or clenching. We can help you prevent excessive damage to your teeth through creation of custom guards for your bite.

Tooth Colored Fillings – We match the color of your filling with your existing tooth surface to craft a smile with a natural look and feel.

Porcelain Veneers - If you are uncomfortable with your smile because your teeth are uneven, cracked, oddly shaped, chipped, crooked or have other irregularities, porcelain veneers from Lumineer (http://www.lumineers.com/before-and-after.aspx) offer a natural-looking option without braces.

Cosmetic Dental Bonding – This simple, low cost, technique allows us to close small gaps between your front teeth, even-out teeth, or repair chipped or cracked teeth.

Porcelain Crowns, Onlays & Inlays - Natural looking and long lasting porcelain crowns, onlays and inlays work perfectly to restore function to weak, worn or broken teeth. We partner with Georgia Dental Lab, the 2010 NADL Lab of the Year (http://www.gadentallab.com/en/about-georgia-dental-laboratory) to build great replacement teeth.

Bridges - If you are missing teeth and committed to maintaining good oral hygiene practices, you are a candidate for a bridge. A bridge is a natural choice to fill the space in the mouth left by missing teeth.

Dental Implants - Dental implants are the next best thing to re-growing your own teeth. They replace the roots of teeth that have been lost through injury, decay and gum disease.
