Our comprehensive examinations are just that–a focused, all-encompassing investigation into your mouth. We provide a thorough, 90-minute review of all systems, digital x-rays, digital photographs and a study model mounted using instruments to mimic the movements of your jaw.
Complete (Full) Dentures are made after all the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw have been removed and the gum tissue has healed. The denture includes an acrylic base that is custom made in the dental laboratory and are made to look like natural gums, which sits over the gums or can be anchored to dental implants.
Removable Partial Dentures are made only when a few teeth need to be replaced. The removable partial denture either attaches to crowns on either side of the denture or to a metal framework that is attached to the teeth on both sides of the partial denture. Partial dentures can be removable or they can be anchored in place by attaching them to dental implants.
Removable partial dentures can be supported in place by attaching them to dental implants when wearing them during the day.
In-Office Bleaching usually requires only one office visit. A protective gel or a rubber shield is placed over the gums to protect the soft tissue. A bleaching agent containing carbamide peroxide is applied to the teeth, and a high frequency wave length light is then used to enhance the action of the whitening agent .
At-Home bleaching requires an impression of the teeth to be taken to make a customized mouth guard to hold the whitening gel, containing carbide peroxide, against the teeth. Once the mouth guard is made, it is worn for a period of time, as instructed by our office. The amount of time may vary from a couple hours a day, or all night, for up to four weeks or longer, if desired.

We are able to fully restore our patients’ mouths back to their normal function, health and appearance caused by years of wear, faulty restorations and periodontal disease.
When used for surgical and dental procedures, the laser acts as a cutting instrument. When used for “curing” a filling, the laser helps to strengthen the bond between the filling and the tooth. When used in teeth-whitening procedures, the laser acts as a heat source and enhances the effect of tooth-bleaching agents. The procedures performed with dental lasers are minimally invasive and preferable to conventional surgery.
Lasers can be used to:
- Reshape gums
- Eliminate pockets in gums
- Correct ankyloglossia (tongue-tied)
